Grand Master Rameshbabu Praggnanandhaa has made India proud. The 18-year-old became only the second Indian, after Viswanathan Anand, to reach the final of the FIDE World Cup, held in Baku, Azerbaijan. He played against the world’s number one, Magnus Carlsen. Though Praggnanandhaa may have fallen short of becoming the youngest Chess World Cup champion, the Indian prodigy has captured the attention of the chess world with his remarkable skills.
Tears of joy rolled down the face of her mother Nagalakshmi, as her son created history. Several photographs, which captured the emotional moments gained immense popularity on the internet. In a widely circulated picture on social media, Nagalakshmi is seen smiling and admiring her son, who was giving an interview. Another snapshot spotted her with tears of joy. People lauded Nagalakshmi for being a strong pillar of support behind Praggnanandhaa.

Take a look at Amul’s topical below:
Amul always seizes the opportunity to celebrate India’s major achievements through their creative topicals. Days ago, when India’s Chandrayaan 3 successfully landed on the moon, Amul dedicated a topical to honour ISRO’s efforts and historic achievement. Their animated post depicted Amul’s mascot, dressed as an astronaut, holding a victory flag and standing beside Chandrayaan 1. For the unversed, Chandrayaan 1 was India’s first lunar mission in 2008. The text on top of the poster playfully said, “Chaar chaand lag gaye!” and at the bottom, they wrote, “Amul over the moon.” “We thank the ISRO team for their continuous service to take India to greater heights. #Chandrayaan3,” Amul captioned the post.
