  7. 7. 1. He is a French writer, poet, aristocrat, journalist and pioneering aviator, known for his lyrical aviation writings, including Wind, Sand and Stars and Night Flight. A year after his death, his mother asked the French Air Force — where he was rendering services in his final days — to return a chess set, which was part of the precious belongings he took with him when he flew.
  8. 8. 2. Playing with his wife Vera, this author was included in the US National Chess team to create chess problems for training the candidate masters. A biographer noted: “Chess games occur in several of his novels; and chess and chess problem language and imagery regularly put his readers' chess knowledge to the test.” His third novel, published in 1930, centers on a chess master driven to despair by his genius, a character based on real grandmaster Curt von Bardeleben.
  9. 9. 3. Playing with the poet Bertolt Brecht, this German philosopher is best known for his essays, "The Task of the Translator" (1923), "The Work of Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction" (1936), and "Theses on the Philosophy of History" (1940). In 1941, Brecht wrote an ode to the author, titled ‘To ______ ________ Who Killed Himself While Fleeing Hitler’: Tactics of attrition are what you enjoyed At the chessboard seated in the pear tree’s shade. The Enemy then drove you from your books; The likes of us? Ground down, outplayed.
  10. 10. 4. Playing with his wife, this Nobel laureate is known for his works that explore an individual's search for authenticity, self-knowledge and spirituality. The protagonist of his magnum opus rejoices in the chess board and its implications, namely that death is not permanent, sins can be forgiven, and consequences are not real.
  11. 11. 5. Here she is pictured while playing with her teacher, Anne Sullivan. Their relationship was popularized by the autobiography Story of My Life, and its adaptations for film and stage, The Miracle Worker.
  12. 12. 6. Playing with his wife, he is an Irish playwright, critic, polemicist and political activist, influenced by Henrik Ibsen. An avid chess player, he drew controversy for the following statement in The Irrational Knot: “[Chess] is a foolish expedient for making idle people believe they are doing something very clever, when they are only wasting their time.”
  13. 13. 7. The Dumbledorean author, essayist, and philosopher, is known to have played chess even while speaking to a gathering. A somewhat worried reporter once wrote: “...he and his wife and children are playing as if their lives depended on the results. The tables in the various rooms are marked out as chess boards, and the dogs and other pets are named after the chess pieces. This sort of thing of course cannot last.”

Anticipating this, company X sponsored more than fifty books for the people on board, including works of almost all major British and Russian writers. Years later, the crew recalls how nourishing the books had been in the harsh winter. Book Y by author Z, however, seemed to have a particularly dark impact on one person, who recalls having an ice-axe in his hand as he trailed his hut-mate through the whiteness. “I remember getting deeply into the mind of Raskolnikov and thinking hard about this cold-blooded murder,” which the anti-hero commits with an axe. "There’s no question that if you put two people in a hut the size of a caravan and shut them up for nine months, you will generate intense frustration." At the same time he was pondering the question of whether good and evil truly exist. “I don’t really know whether [my hut-mate] was in danger or not.”

  72. 72. Q4. Give X, Y, and Z X partnered closely with Y on the research for Y's book Z, which eventually sprouted the new genre of "nonfiction novels". X privately objected to Y's fabrications in Z and therefore requested Y to not make a significant mention of their partnership in the book's acknowledgement. X also started writing a nonfiction novel with the working title The Reverend to "do it the right way," but never really completed it. The book followed the story of Willie Maxwell, a real life charismatic African-American preacher from 1970s Alabama, who was killed at his step-daughter's funeral by a man who'd eventually be defended in court by a larger-than-life lawyer and politician, similar to an iconic character from X's first book.

  78. 78. Q7. Give X, Y, and Z X had his lowest point in life in 1481 when he was excluded from an important art project Y that the Pope had commissioned. As a result, he chose to move out of his city and establish himself in Milan, where he was commissioned to make a large bronze statue in the memory of the then duke's father. Soon, a war broke out and all the bronze earmarked for the statue was used up for artillery. Z, who had distinguished himself through project Y, taunted X saying, "You who made a model of a horse you could never cast in bronze, and which you gave up to your shame: the stupid people of Milan had faith in you?"
  79. 79. X: Leonardo Da Vinci Y: Sistine Chapel Z: Michelangelo

Initially scheduled to be completed this year, it will continue well into the new decade.

  113. 113. Q7. Put A, B, C. After Donald Trump’s election, author A came to be seen by some as a soothsayer. A's book B, written ironically in 1984, laid out an extreme version of America’s pathologies, issuing a warning that what was once shocking could come to seem normal, as outrage devolved into complacency. Given the story’s status, when publication of its sequel C was announced in 2018, the reaction in the literary world was frenzied. Cyber-criminals undertook a long (though unsuccessful) campaign to hack the computers of A’s literary agents and steal the manuscript. Only a tiny number of copies were released for publicity—including a few for the judges of the Booker prize, who had shortlisted C for the award.
  114. 114. Ans. A: Margaret Atwood B: The Handmaid’s Tale C: The Testaments
  115. 115. Q8. X and Y. The director of the movie X claimed he had no plans to direct movies until the story of X came to him. It wasn't an easy first film to pull off. The story required an entire village to be built in a barren landscape. Fifteen bhungas (circular houses with thatched roofs peculiar to the Kutch region), a chowk and a temple were made. "It can still be seen on Google Maps," says the director of the bhungas. With its parched landscape, female ensemble and "a strong statement on women empowerment", comparisons with Ketan Mehta's powerful drama Y were expected. X’s director doesn't mind. "Whenever I have watched the film, I have been entertained," he said in a phone interview with a newspaper. "Each and every single second of it bowls me over. It is 110 percent my tribute to Y."
  116. 116. Ans X - Hellaro; Y - Mirch Masala
  117. 117. Danke!
