"Success by design is infinitely better than a win by chance.' Vasu Bhatt is fourteen years old when a mysterious old man spots him at a chess tournament and offers to coach him?on two simple but strange conditions: he would not accompany his student to tournaments, and there would be no digging into his past. Initially resentful, Vasu begins to gradually understand his master�s mettle.

Meanwhile, their hard work and strategy pay off: Vasu qualifies for the World Chess Championship. But can he make it all the way without his master by his side? Inspiring, moving and mercurial, The Last Gambit is a coming-of-age tale in a uniquely Indian context.",
