Abhijit Kunte is a GM and the chief selector of Indian chess team. He is also the chief manager of sports in Indian Oil. He dons many hats, and the recent one was very special. He along with his team in Indian Oil launched the Parivartan program which tries to bring an environment of sports in prisons. Chess was included in this program.
As Indian Oil launched this initiative, FIDE announced it’s social initiative of chess in prisons inter continental championships. This proved to be a great co-incidence. Indian Oil galvanized resources like chess sets and trainers to prisons across India. 37 prisons got the chess program started.
What started as a social initiative turned into a proud moment for the nation when the Yerwada prison won the bronze medal at the Inter-Continental Championships 2022. We interview Abhijit Kunte and understand how all of this transpired and what is his and Indian Oil’s vision in the days to come.
