Role of chess - Quotes from Kasparov
Garry Kasparov, the chess legend, was in the capital of India at the invitation of Entrepreneurs’ Organisation which organised the RIE 2016 event. In his interview with EO president Vibhas Prasad, talked about his life, politics, and Indian Chess and also answered the questions put up by the audience. Here are some inspiring quotes reproduced from his interview.
Chess and politics are different. In chess there are predictable moves and unpredictable results.
The first step towards decision-making is to know who you are and create an environment of good decision-making. In most cases, vital decisions will be made under time pressure.
At the end of the day it is about how you use your dominant qualities to create favorable conditions.
You need to be in good physical shape to guide your intuition. You need to trust your gut feeling.
Today the fear of making a mistake is great. That pulls you back. You have to take risks.
Chess is a reflection of the society and should be part of family culture to become a mass sport.

पैंजण घालत नको जाऊ !
मला त्रास होतो.
जरा काही किणकिणलं की
मग भास होतो.
कधीकधी हवेसे वाटतात,
कारण तू येणार आहेस,
तू जेव्हा त्यांना बजावतेस !
नको त्या वेळी गडबड करतात,
दोन क्षण कुठे शांततेत जातात,
तर हे दोघं कुजबुजतात !
तरीपण तू पैंजण घालणार,
माझा जीव कासावीस करणार,
एखादा नवीन जोड मागणार,
मला बघून गोड हसणार !
Colors of fall at Kharikamunda
|After turning from Badgaon towards Bamra, just after few kilometers there is a place called KharikaMunda. Known to very few, the geologically interesting place is also a picnic spot. Some strange and puzzling terrain stopped us to explore more. It was some awesome place not to miss in the fall.|
|The late-afternoon light was imparting the character to the cliff. The blue-yellow combination had some stunning role to enhance the beauty of the place.|
“” — Ibn Battuta
