His Holiness Prahladananda Swami when speaking to young Arjun, son of Ananta, about Arjun’s interest in Chess, told him that he was the captain of the Chess team that they had in Manhattan. He said he started when he was five and when he was in his chess club he defeated his teacher so many times that the teacher decided to stay home and study for hours and days till he could come back and defeat his student. He humorously remarked, “Problem is you start seeing everyone as pawns and thinking of yourself as the King”
