A bit of Bangladesh history not documented. After the liberation, around 72/73 a Russian chess contingent came to newly independent Bangladesh. Among them there was a GRAND Master. And he could not win against a girl (woman) named Asma Alam. (Sohel bhai, can you guess who this "Alam" is?) She was in her mid 20s. She was a Freedom fighter as well.
