Maharashtra Chess Association's Action Plan

Update : 7th May 2021

We are living in challenging times and many of us are facing endless troubles due to the Pandemic. We have to take care of our life, livelihood for ourselves and that of our family and close friends. There has never been a time in our lives when we felt this vacuum and a feeling of helplessness. There are times when we want to just talk to someone & lighten up the pressure that is building within, and then there are emergencies when we are totally lost, times when the financial pressure of handling a situation drives us to commit unthinkable acts.

It is these pressures and challenges that we want to address & be the anchor to our Chess fraternity in Maharashtra. Encouraged by the Clariant call given by Dr. Sanjay Kapoor ji, President AICF, Shri. Bharat Singh Chavan ji & Shri. Ajay Patel ji to #CheckMateCOVID, I as the Serving President of MCA have taken the mantle to be with each and every member of our Chess family, 24x7x365. Together we will fight this Pandemic and any future challenges on mental and physical health any one of us faces.

With the support of our Hon. Secretary Shri. Niranjan Godbole ji & guidance from Shri. Ashok Bhau Jain, Shri. Girish Vyas ji, Shri. Parinay Fuke ji, Shri. Aniruddha Deshpande ji, Shri. Girish Chitale ji, Shri. Narendra Firodia ji, GM Abhijit Kunte & all members of the MCA administration, I am preparing a standard protocol and communication channel which will make it easier to reach out to us and get timely help.

I want you to know that we are with you, we pray that no one falls sick, but if you do, rest assured that your Chess Family all over the country is standing with you. Chess will definitely beat COVID!

Shri. Siddharth R Mayur (Serving President, MCA)
