Beautiful TIme with Chess!
I bought up in a sweet village named 'Thamalassery'. When I was studying in 4th Standard, that time my neighbor house is active with chess members and games. Really dont know abt the game. But i noticed the spirit and interest in the game. Some are winning and making fun together against the loser. They have a notice board also to update the game result. Among them Ilyas is the best player. He noticed my interest in the game. He asked me..can i teach u the game? with smile I replied and start learning the game.
He teached me the movements and some opening attacks. really makes me self confidence and got more interests. Slowly I got the chess tricks and developed self by watching their games.
When I start playing against them, I got a great victory against my master. It was my turning point. Played couple of local tournaments. After 10 years, I got honored for best chess player award from my village. It was a great moment in my life.
