Anjali – A New World With No Killing

After we played a game of chess, Anjali went back to the board and started playing by herself. I came back after a while. She was looking happy.

‘You look happy,’ I noticed. ‘What did you do?’
‘I played chess by myself,’ said the six and a half year old.

I nodded.
‘You know Nanna, there are no killings when I play with myself. I know all the moves so I cannot kill anyone.’

A new world when we know all the moves and seek to save lives rather than kill. Where we use information to save, not kill. (or capture!)

You know they don't use "kill" in chess anymore..... its called "capture" now. lol

Capture, then. I'm sure that's a better way.
