These days we often see the word legend being used lightly. People who have not achieved much are quoted as legends and this leads to the reduction of the value of the word per se. However, when the right people are attributed with the term, it enhances the value of the word. And one such person who does justice to the word legend is Mr. Dhruv Sawhney.
His achievements are so many that it would take an entire book to fill them up. But here are a few:
1. Graduated with a Master’s degree in Mechanical Sciences from Emmanuel College, University of Cambridge, U.K.
2. M.B.A with distinction from the Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania, U.S.A.
3. Received the “Chevalier de la Legion d’Honneur” from President Chirac of the French Republic
4. Made an ‘Honorary Lieutenant of the Royal Victorian Order’ (LVO) by HM Queen Elizabeth II
5. Chaired the Commonwealth Leadership Development Conferences
6. Co-Chair of the Indo-French CEO’s Forum set up by the the Prime Minister of India and President of France.
7. Past Chairman of the Indian Institute of Management, Kashipur, and the Doon School, Dehradun
8. President of the All-India Chess Federation for 12 years
9. Chevalier of the Confrérie des Chevaliers du Tastevin in Burgundy, France
10. President of the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII)
Dhruv is the Chairman and the Managing Director of the Triveni Group and the group owns a team at the Global Chess League called the Triveni Continental Kings. And this is the team that won the first edition of the GCL. IM Sagar Shah interviews Dhruv Sawhney and gets his thoughts on the event, the growth of chess, his thoughts on the sport and lessons that he can share with the youngsters. It is fantastic that Mr. Sawhney who was once the President of AICF for 12 years is now back to chess!
