Upon reaching the summit, the first feeling is that of relief for having achieved the goal. No one knows this better than Sriram Jha, who became India's 21st Grandmaster (GM) on Wednesday, with a draw in the 8th round of the 47th Premier National Chess Championship here.

International Master B Adhiban was also relieved as he achieved his maiden GM norm after missing the mark on many occasions in the last 18 months.
