CHENNAI: These chess enthusiasts have never seen Viswanathan Anand play. In fact, a good majority of the 73 students who took part in a state-level chess tournament on Friday had little idea about what their opponents looked like. But that certainly didn’t stop these visually impaired players from stepping up to win.
“Winning. That’s the only word on my mind when I’m playing chess,” said 14-year-old David Kumar, who made the trip from Puducherry for the event.
