Chess develops education and life skills: Anand
Noida: Chess playing inculcates useful skills among students, said Vishwanathan Anand. The Ace chess player while inaugurating teh Chess Academy said that playing chess enhances the memory, provides confidence, teaches problem solving and increases concentration.

"Chess teaches you that all moves have consequences," he said, adding this was a important lesson to learn for impressionable minds.

Anand, who set up the academy in a venture with IT trainer NIIT, said the idea had come almost 12 years back after talking to world chess federation (FIDE) chief and then Kalmykia president, Kirsan Nikolayevich Ilyumzhinov, who told him how chess introduced in schools of his republic in Russia had led to a rise in the students' educational standards.

"We have seen the same results in India where the academy encompasses 17,000 schools and almost 17 million students all over India. A survey among 8,000 students and teachers showed the students have more confidence.. gave better answers. They showed better aptitude to tackle subjects like maths and physics," he said.

"Good mental training for studies, chess is not only an academic tool but fun as well," said Anand

"Anand became the first Indian Grandmaster. Since then, there have been 28 more," he said, adding the attributes for a good chess player - persistence, practice, memory - are as important in education and life," he said.
