Variant by an Indian king from the 1800's. The king's intention is to start Red with a substantial positional advantage while White gets two extra pawns. For this reason, and since probably nobody knows for sure, I did not allow the white pawns to make initial double steps. I thought promotion should be to the white file piece, queen for the seventh file.
