Chess tournament for visually impaired

Swahilya

CHENNAI: The National Association for the Blind (NAB) and the Madras Coastal Round Table - 162 will jointly organise a State-level chess tournament for the visually impaired on February 25 at Jawaharlal Nehru Indoor Stadium.

Meyyammai Murugappan, president of NAB, said the programme would give the participants a moral boost while improving their intellectual capabilities.

"This will go to prove that the visually impaired in no way fall short from people with vision," she said, adding that the programme will also give them the sheer joy of playing the game.

Car rallies

The association also organises car rallies in which the visually impaired navigators give drivers with normal vision directions from Braille sheets. The logistics for the rally are organised by the Motor Sports Club.

The chess tournament, sponsored by Coke will be inaugurated by R. Nataraj, Commissioner of Police, M. Ezhil, treasurer of the association, said.
