Blitzkrieg at 16th edition of rapid chess tournament

Image

While chess is normally a game of measured moves, the rapid chess format is all about a blitzkrieg of clever manoeuvres.

“Rapid chess is gaining popularity as more players are evincing interest in the format,” observed Anantharaja G.G., president, Tiruchi District Chess Association (TDCA), which organised the 16{+t}{+h}edition of the State rapid chess championship here.

The three-day event, which concluded at Saranathan College of Engineering on Sunday, attracted nearly 100 players from various parts of the State.

Rapid event is a form of chess in which each player is allotted 30 minutes per round.

“The format brings out the best from a player in quick time. The decision-making abilities of the players come to the fore,” Mr.Anantharaja added.

After 11 rounds of intense battles, P.Lokesh of Chennai emerged winner. In fact, it was a three-way tie at the top, with Lokesh, Ram S.Krishnan of Chennai and Y.Syed Anwar Shazuli of Kancheepuram finishing with 9.5 points after the 11th and final round. But, Lokesh was adjudged winner through the Buchholz system, which was applied to break the tie.

At the valediction, S.Ravindran, secretary, Saranathan College of Engineering, gave away prizes in the presence of T.Sundar Rajan, secretary, TDCA.

IPL star bowls over aspiring cricketers

The victorious Srirangam Boys Higher Secondary School cricket team members receiving trophy from cricketer R.Sathish in Tiruchi on Friday.

Aspiring young cricketers had an inspiring session of interaction with city boy R.Sathish, who has made a mark in the Indian Premier League (IPL), at the valediction of the inter-school cricket tournament on Friday.

“Those who wish to reach higher levels must be determined to work hard,” said Sathish, who played for the Mumbai Indians in the third and fourth editions of the IPL. Terming such inter-school tourneys as launch pads, Sathish advised the youngsters to participate in tournaments regularly.

“There are lot of talented youngsters in the district. They must remain confident and focused,” said Sathish, who will be sporting the Kings XI Punjab jersey in the fifth edition of the IPL.

The eight-day inter-school cricket tournament, which was organised by the Tiruchi District Cricket Association (TDCA) at Bishop Heber College here, was for students up to Standard IX. At the end of the league phase, four teams – Srirangam Boys HSS , Campion Anglo Indian HSS , St. John's Vestry Anglo Indian Higher Secondary School and Chinmaya Vidyalaya Matriculation School – qualified for the semi-finals.

In the final, Srirangam Boys HSS defeated Campion AI HSS to clinch the TDCA DJ Trophy. A. Astle of Campion AI HSS was adjudged the best batsman, while S.Santhosh Sivan of Srirangam Boys HSS won the best bowler award. V. Shibi Jawahar of Srirangam Boys HSS bagged the best all rounder and man of the final awards.

Sathish gave away prizes in the presence of P. Ilangovan, secretary, TDCA; L.C. John, Director of Physical Education, Bishop Heber College; and D.J.Venkatesh Durai of DJ Automobiles. R.Chandrasekaran, headmaster, Srirangam Boys HSS, and R.Raja Srinivasan, coach, commended the team.

Sparrow census takes wing

Image

When Blessie, a second year student, determinedly stepped out on a mission of tailing sparrows on Sunday afternoon, she did not expect to return home many hours later, disappointed. “A friend and I spent hours walking up and down all 14 crosses of Bharathi Nagar twice, but we didn't chance on a single sparrow. The only consolation was an empty sparrow's nest.”

Fortunately, unlike Blessie, some of her friends from Bishop Heber College who participated in the sparrow census organised by the Nature Club and Department of Environmental Studies, got luckier.

Over 60 students were roped in to take a sparrow count in and around Tiruchi as part of World Sparrow Day. There has been growing concern worldwide on dwindling numbers of house sparrows as the ubiquitous creature whose trill we woke up to every morning is now uncommon in our neighbourhoods.

According to the sparrow count, almost no birds have been sighted in residential areas in the heart of the city like Cantonment, Thillai Nagar, Puthur and Woraiyur. “Though this is a cause for concern, it was heartening to find sparrows are still found in localities on the fringe of city limits. The numbers are also encouraging in rural pockets,” says A.Relton, staff advisor, Nature Club.

According to results obtained from the project, Panjapur topped the list with a count of 32 sparrows, followed by Ariyavur and Alithurai. The census took wing when club members grew anxious failing to spot house sparrows on a campus that boasts around 60 varieties of birds.

No place to nest

Students were apprised prior to the study on how to distinguish male and female sparrows by identifying specific characteristics. “For instance the male has a black or white patch on the throat while the female is of a uniform shade,” says Nissie adding that members also looked for common nesting spots like eaves of houses, crevices and grooves. “The sparrow is a cavity nester and change in architectural styles is one of the reasons behind falling numbers. There are a few houses with thatched roofs or tiles that make for nesting places,” adds Mr. Relton.

A combination of reasons such as urbanisation, pollution and even possible radiation emitted from cell phone towers have been attributed to the elusiveness of the bird.

Unavailability of organic, chemical-free food grains may be responsible for lesser success in breeding rate of sparrows, believe bird watchers.

The Department of Environmental Studies of the college also conducted a short study to evaluate if cell phone towers kept the birds at bay, but could find no established correlation.

Students feel individual and collective efforts are necessary to ensure that the sparrow is not something we encounter only in books. “Putting out a little grain and water for the sparrows as a daily ritual could be an interesting hobby,” suggests Asha, a student.

The college plans to distribute ‘sparrow boxes'- boxes with holes for nesting- in areas that have showed significant numbers to save whatever remains of the bird population in the vicinity of the city. School children would be roped in to ensure the birds are undisturbed.
