26th January 2023 Mathew George and Beena
Hello everyone😊 I wish to share my friend’s cross-stitch work today. Mathew is an accomplished plastic surgeon and a chess player who won trophies during his younger days. He won the first for Kerala at the Junior National Championship in 1975. The piece above is so exquisite that it looks like a painting with a 3D effect😊😊.
The chess game began in India 1500 years ago and was called chaturanga. It depicts the four components of the military (infantry, cavalry, elephantry and chariotry. The game has evolved from the Romantic version, which had quick tactical manoeuvres, to the current version, which has a computer control😊, when the IBM supercomputer beat Gary Kasporov🤦🏽♀️🤦🏽♀️.
In our daily lives, we are constantly playing chess games without being aware of that. For example, when you chat with your friends, there are instances when you realise that you have been check-mated🤔😒. It has happened to me zillion times, and I always wish I knew how to play chess so that I could win some games occasionally and call out ” Check-mate”. That would be my ultimate thrill for that moment💃🏽💃🏽💃🏽. Have a great day, check-mating or not🙏😆.
