Playing chess at home in Nairobi, June 2012

Hi there! My name is Paras Gudka and I’m a Kenyan chess player, teacher, organiser, arbiter (FA) and blogger based in Bombay, India.

I’ve been involved in all areas of chess — from playing competitively to organising events, founding websites and clubs, selling equipment and even writing columns.

At present I am working on my goal of becoming an IM while looking for opportunities in chess training/coaching.

I blog at theparasg.in when I can. You can also find me on: Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
