    Legend has it that the Queen of King Ravana in ancient Sri Lanka invented chess so the King would not go to war killing people and she was a better player tan him? A prayer for peace and may chess help us all to build a better world. Thank you for your message GM Kosteniuk.

    Dear Chess Queen Alexandra Kosteniuk, I follow you loyally on your blogs and social media. I don't think your message is going to make any difference to the hardcore terrorists out there, but yes it is a message of peace that I support because the rest of us do want peace in thought and action on a daily basis without bias for skin, religion, ideology etc. That ways chess is an amazing tool. I congratulate you for offering this peace message and hope many more people will understand its importance as it comes to you from a public figure. Best Wishes, AnanthMurthy, Chennai
