Last week, I helped the Telugu Kala Samithi people to conduct a Bahrain Open Chess tournament. I did just the registration work for the participants. I don’t know anything about chess except some basic rules and moves. In fact, I never tried my hand in it. But after the registration process, I went in to see how the tourney is going on. I was astounded by the way small kids (most of them below 10 yrs) are playing. They are playing with the some kind of zeal (which I never felt in me) and expertise. For the first time in my life, I cursed myself for not learning the game. I hope to learn at least the basics of the game soon.
