This is the third time that I represented my school in the Inter-DPS National Chess Championship, this time in Lucknow. Like every year, this year also I enjoyed this tournament a lot. Forty four schools came to compete in this tournament from which our school was one. The host school (DPS Lucknow, Eldeco) had a very good in ambience. The venue chosen by the host school was very good to play a mind game like chess. The tournament was held for two days 20th and 21st of July. After this nerve wracking job my team mate Oishik Kundu and I succeeded to become the champions in this tournament. I contributed 6 points out of 6 rounds to my team and won the board prize of board 1. After the prize distribution ceremony was over, the host school organised a friendly football match between the teachers and the students which was a joyful experience for me and a lot of enjoyment for all of us. On the next day, three of us, that is, Oishik, our chess teacher Arindam Sir and I went for sightseeing in the state of the Nawabs called Lucknow. We went to Barai Imambara and Bhulbhulaiya which were amazing places to know the history of many Nawabs. Next day,we returned to Kolkata. Well, success is always sweet, but, the opportunities of exposure our noble Alma Mater, DPS North Kolkata, provides us are nonetheless sweeter.
