Championship ...

Prasad shot to limelight overnight just for the simple reason that he is the one who has been selected from his village for the world chess championship. The entire village was jumping in joy and also they have seen Prasad winning medals in competitions like boxing, running, wrestling, high jump, long jump etc etc, so they were very confident that Prasad will surely be a world champion in chess as well. Not to doubt his abilities Prasad too have heard a lot about chess and he started to prepare mentally for the game by doing yoga and other mind exercises ...

Prasad was given a separate house with all loaded amenities and all the other villagers were informed that they should not disturb Prasad for a month and he should concentrate hard on winning this world championship, and that will get a big name to the village. Prasad became the center of attraction and he too enjoyed that attention. He was told that mental strength is the first priority to play chess and hence he needs to develop that, but Prasad being a winner for so many other games, decided the other way, he felt that he should be physically strong and hence he decided to exercise 8 hours a day. He called up on the village people to supply him with rich protein food daily so that he can develop his physic.

Prasad did yoga to keep his mind fit and then exercises to keep his body fit and the days for the competition was fast approaching. All the villagers were more anxious to know how Prasad has prepared for the big event. It was just one day to the competition and Prasad is about to leave to SPAIN to play the championship, and he was seen exercising all thru the day and he has developed a very good physic, on seeing that the villagers were a little worried and approached him to ask how he has prepared for the competition apart from doing physical exercises.

Prasad was happy to see the entire village assembling in front of his house and the village chief asked him with a little worried tone, Prasad, we have seen you doing only physical exercises for whole of this month, but we have not seen you practicing playing the game, are you confident that you will win ?? Prasad replied back with a huge laughter and said, he pities them for their ignorance, I heard that in chess I have to move HORSES and ELEPHANTS, how will I do that if I don’t have the right physic. The entire village plunged into silence ...
