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 motive...it 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 chessqueen.com website. Thanks again.

    Special kid from India takes his country to top position in Chess variants inventions.
    [Chess was invented in India and a kid of 10.5 years suffering from fatal disease has invented 3 types of Circular chess boards, which had led to 100 chess variants inventions.]
    A rare chess prodigy and a child prodigy with a unique difference from Jaipur has brought tempest in the world of circular chess and chess variants with his trembling fingers working, which are determined to take the glorious past of his country in the field of chess further. Chess was invented in India and a kid of 10.5 years Hridayeshwar Singh Bhati, who is suffering from fatal disease has invented 3 types of Circular chess boards, which had led to 100 chess variants inventions. He has left Sheldon Cooper far behind. (Sheldon Cooper: The man who invented 3 players’ chess and became global celebrity for same). Moreover with addition of 100 more circular chess variants, India must have emerged as undoubted number 1 in the field of circular chess variants. Further not only in the field of circular chess variants, with these inventions by the special kid, India must be among top ranks as far as chess variants are considered, even leaving the country Japan far behind.
    Imagine the level of his inventive instinct that he became the youngest patent holder in India and youngest disabled patent holder of world by inventing circular chess for 2,3,4,6 players at the age of 9 years and getting it patent in India. The beauty of these innovative circular chess variants is that its rules are based on existing chess and having more application and utility.He has invented 3 Circular chess boards, namely 6, 12 and 60 players, which had led to invention of 100 possible circular chess variants. One and half year back he invented 6 players circular chess in which 2, 3, 4, 6 players or teams can play chess in multiple format and he had already got patent for same. His latest invention is of 12 players and 60 players’ circular chess boards and his patent for both of these is under process at Controller General of Patents (Government of India). Circular Chess for 12 players in which 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 9, 10, 12 players or teams can play chess in multiple format. Circular Chess for 60 players in which 2, 3, 4, 5 , 6, 8, 9, 10, 12, 14, 15, 16, 18, 20, 21, 22, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 30, 32, 33, 34, 35, 36, 38, 39, 40, 42, 44, 45, 46, 48, 50, 51, 52, 54, 55, 56, 57, 58, 60 players or teams can play chess in multiple format.
    Before his inventions of circular chess the maximum limit of players to play chess was 3 in circular chess and 8 in any type of chess variants. But now that maximum limit is 60 for chess variants. He believes that 60 player’s circular chess can become a great game for chess lovers in Clubs as it will involve a large size, hence it will require a large space. Yes circular chess of 12 players can be used indoors as well as for clubs as the minimum radius required for same will be 2 feet. The beauty of these innovative circular chess variants is that its rules are based on existing chess and having more application and utility as more number of players can play in individual or team with multiple formats.
