Hi everyone,

Here's a weekend quote from the world chess champion Viswanathan Anand to spread some chess cheer! 

"Chess offers an outlet for pure, real and meaningful thinking, and the game has a 'Zen' like quality of symmetry, equality and fair play," said Anand. He also said, Sport has the ability to create future leaders and gives vent to the "real and meaningful thinking".
The world champion said progress in education and knowledge are intrinsically linked with the human brain and added that the strategies used in chess can effectively be used to build a sound future. "The strategies from the game of chess can be used effectively and innovatively to create the great leaders tomorrow," Anand insisted while emphasising on 'Building a Beautiful Mind.'
