According to chessvibes.com , Surya Shekhar Ganguly (India) was another member of Anand's second for the upcoming 2008 World Championship.

Both Anand and Kramnik has revealed their second for the upcoming World Chess Championship next week.

Kramnik seconders is World top ten player - Peter Leko (FIDE 2747), Sergei Rublevsky (FIDE 2702) - Russian super strong GM and French no. 3 - Laurent Fressinet (FIDE 2676).

Anand choose Peter Heine Nielsen (FIDE 2662) - who has help Anand before, Rustam Kasimdzhanov (FIDE 2672) - Former FIDE World Champion , Surya Shekhar Ganguly (FIDE 2603) (photo right) and unknown - Radoslaw Wojtaszek (FIDE 2599)

Previous rumours that world no.4 - Magnus Carslen would be Anand second for this match seem unmateralised . However i think Anand should not forget another "important member" ... not Magnus Carslen...but...Aruna Anand (photo left) - his wife!
