He's someone who is very leeniligtnt but you never know which mood he is going to be in.Some days he will treat you like his long-lost brother. The next day he ignores you completely.I have seen him totally drunk and singing Ukrainian poetry . Those are Anand's comments to Vasilly Ivanchuk not Garry Kasparov.
