Kids' Chess Inspiration Helps him Look Beyond his Disability

Chess blog for latest chess news and chess trivia (c) Alexandra Kosteniuk, 2012

Hi everyone,

Normally, when you read chess news about someone obtaining a patent for a chess product, the general impression is that it's a commercial venture. However, chess is actually a great inspiration for all of us in life in so many ways.

Despite suffering from duchenne muscular dystrophy, a progressive degenerative disorder of muscle tissue which affects only males, Hridayeshwar Singh Bhati - a class-IV student of Delhi Public School - has made an innovative version of circular chess for two, three, four and six players. 

"We are now working on a chess board on which 60 players can play together. Commercialisation is not the is aimed at inspiring others that despite worst condition, one can give best results," says his father. 

You can read the full story here. But, don't forget to let chess inspire you to conquer your limitations in whatever you do, wherever you are! Tell us also, how chess inspires you?

    chess inspires me to look at all the pretty girls who come to tournaments and then beat me badly yet i stay calm - wink - no, seriously speaking, i wouldn't know what my life would be without chess. As an administrative officer with the government my days are packed with so much tension that it is chess that takes my mind right off everything and i go right back to fight another day.

    Must add a word Ms Chess Queen - You are an inspiration!!! You do so much in your profession and so much otherwise that it is a pleasure to keep track of your work and progress. I wish you all the luck in all your endeavours. keep up the good work. I enjoy reading both chess blog here and your website. Thanks again.
