4indiaAli Nihat YAZICI - FIDE Vice President and CIS Chairman:
I have visited India from 17 February 2013 till 22nd February 2013. I was always admiring the great chess country. It was my dream to be there and to see with my eyes, what was happening with Indian Chess. As you know, All India Chess Federation is an admiral ship of FIDE management. India is the motherland of chess, where game was born in history. I may tell you that from beginning with visa procedure till my return back, (sorry to all other countries including Turkey), this was the best hospitality I have seen in my life. I thank to everyone, especially, Mr. Sundar, Mr. Singh, Mr. Dongre for their arrangements for that hospitality. I will go those heroes later one by one.
