Not a big surprise I think:
{
Anand learned the game at age six from his mother because his brothers did not have the patience to play chess with him. He proved to be a good pupil.

By the time he was 13, Anand was India's junior champion and at the age of 16, he won the senior title. He was the world's junior champion in 1987 and in 1991 he won the prestigious Reggio Emilia tournament ahead of the Russian masters Garry Kasparov and Anatoly Karpov.

In 2000, he became the first Asian to take the world title, but his victory was overshadowed by the chess world's two competing chess titles -- one by the International Federation of Chess and the Professional Association of Chess led by Kasporov

Longtime back I read somewhere Kasparov saying 'Only three people know chess,Karpov,Anand and me"

Also Deep Blue. Has Anand played the IBM computer?

"Overshadowed" is right. I hadn't even heard of him until a couple of years ago, even though he won one of the two world championships in 2000.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
