    A very valid question - for me chess is an escape from my daily pressures of my professional life. I am not a professional chess player. Whenever I am too lost because of my work in handling my business and I go home and play chess and all pressure is gone! Happy Happiness Day to all Chess Blog readers from India -- specially Chennai.

    Definitely takes my mind off a lot of other useless stuff in life. Keeps me happy and yes that goes for even when I lose. Chess is my secret dungeon room where I run when I have had enough of the world. Happy Happiness Day Everyone.
