Chess is a classic game of strategy, invented more than 1500 years ago in India.Chess is about making a plan and then trying to carry it out in the face of a dynamic situation with multiple aspects. A chess player’s strength lies in clear, rational thinking, right approach, logic, knowledge and ability not to commit a mistake. Grand Master Viswanathan Anand, Mr Pendyala Harikrishna have made India proud with their extraordinary skills. For Shakespeare, the entire world was a stage and all the people’s actors. For Omar Khayyam the world is a mere chessboard, the people chessmen, and God, the creator, the player.

Chess is extremely helpful in brain development, particularly when it is played regularly from a very early age.Chess also helps in improving concentration and academic performance of the child. chess has been considered as a game played only by intellectuals and individuals with critical thinking abilities.

On 22 day of November, being the Wednesday and ‘Club day’ we the members of Kalpower Club assembled in- front of Multi-Purpose Hall at 3.15pm. Our instructors Mr. Raghavendra Raje Urs B, Mr. Y Venkataramana, Mrs. Jhansi Rani and Mr. Manjappa G K were there on the spot to welcome us for one more tough day, where we can enjoy getting tired, walking long distance amidst nature. Mr. Manjappa GK, the in-charge teacher of the day’s programme briefed us about what we are going to do on the trek.
The destination was Harangi river bed, just 800 meters away from our school campus. On our way to the bank of the river, we were taught how to identify the plants, shrubs and even uses of bamboo shoots. We observed various types of crabs, fish and tadpoles. River crossing technique was taught to us in an interaction mode. We bowed down our heads to the natural beauty of the river flowing over metamorphic rocks.
Our teachers were there with us to touch natural streamlets, feel it and appreciate it. Some of my friends did not hesitate to get wet in the shallow waters as it gave them a different experience. I didn’t know that such a wonderful natural sight is there next to our school campus.
Our trek on the river bank lasted for 2 hours and all of us returned to the school’s old security gate for headcount, de-briefing was done and we were ready to share our experiences to other cadets who were not lucky enough to join our Kal-power Club. The snaps what we took will always cherish my memories of the trek. Thanks to the school authorities, teachers for standing with us, supporting and extending all possible help to explore our natural surroundings in a natural way -Cdt Sachin S S. Class 10 A
“For the first time, I came to know how to identify male and female crabs, thanks to Mr. Manjappa, my Kannada teacher” - -Cdt M Mani Sharan Reddy, Class 10 B
“I learnt that bamboo shoots are not only used for furniture but also in cooking curry or sambar by name ‘Kanale’ in typical Kannada in Western Ghats.” - Cdt Vinay B M, Class 10A
“I tried to catch at least one fish in my hand, couldn’t… I wonder at their swimming style….going out with a group is a memorable one”. - Cdt Sudeep M B, Class 9A
“As everything went on as per the plan, I enjoyed a lot and this trek will be a memorable one in my life” - Cdt Tarun S. Class 8 A
