Straight to the point, yesterday, once again I fell in love with my all time hearty game, Chess.
Having been known as a die-hard fan of cricket I often confuse people and myself as well when I say I love chess the most. A simple way of saying how much I love it is, you wake me up anytime and I’ll be ready to play chess if you want to, be it with anyone. I suppose this is the love towards the game. And what I have towards cricket? I’m damn sure that I’m just crazy about it and never fell in love with it except for very few moments and that too when India won or when some other team won it after an inspiring fight back.
I said it in my earlier posts and I repeat I was first introduced to the game by my dad. He was also the first one to defeat me, first one to lose against me, first one to draw the game with me. Every time I win a trophy I know he must be feeling proud of me. This is the same reason why I make sure that this news reaches to my dad without fail, most of the times through mom and sometimes I myself convey it.
Coming to the reason why I loved it particularly yesterday will follow in next lines. On the eve of women’s day there have been various games conducted in Tata Motors, the organization I work. I’ve participated in Chess and I’ve won the championship for this year. Further to this, most exciting news is that it had been exactly two years I played the game before these competitions. Last time I touched the board was on the eve of women’s day 2010. Still I could be through despite the tough competition.
I loved it. I loved the feeling. I loved the applauds. I loved the game once again to the fullest.
I’ve been winning Chess competitions many a times but I was never presented with such a beautiful trophy that I was handed over this time round. Its shown below. My hearty thanks to the organizing committee. I thank everyone who provided me the moral support.
