    The Chess Olympiad got underway today in Turkey. Here is the link to the website

    Istanbul 2012 World Chess Olympiad


    What caught my attention was the title of the event in Turkish

    [​IMG]

    DUNYA from Duniya meaning world

    SATRANC from shatranj which came from chaturanga from which chess comes from

    OLIMPIYATI meaning Olympics.

    Felt nice to see how the language is connected to us.


    Dear Mods, kindly spell check the title :) (Its fine now, thank you)

    Turkish and Hindi-Urdu are connected by Persian. (duniya is originally a Persian word)


    Done.

    I play on chess.com, we are allowed to select how many days or hours to make each move.

    I play chess on cotopia.com because if you don't make move before 60-120 sec then you will lose that game. I like to play fast.
