TOURISM CLUB

Tourism in Kerala is going through a significant phase of growth and development. The sustained efforts of the Department of Tourism over a period of several years have played a crucial role in achieving this momentum and direction. The Department of Tourism is committed to preserving this trend and working towards long-term goals of establishing tourism as a major development factor in the State. With improved infrastructure and better publicity, the Department of Tourism hopes to receive more tourists, both domestic as well as international in the seasons to come. Better hotels, restaurants and other facilities alone will not develop tourism. Along with the Department of Tourism’s efforts to facilitate adequate infrastructure for the same, it is equally important that steps be taken to create and maintain a collective mind-set among the people of the State with a positive orientation towards tourism and hospitality. We have to re-establish the traditional Indian concept of “atithi devo bhava” in the tourism industry. Our motto should be to receive a guest and to send back a friend. Tourism and the hospitality industry can develop only with the cooperation and wholehearted patronage of a friendly and hospitable host community. It is with this objective that the Department of Tourism is envisaging a massive awareness campaign in the State. Setting up of Tourism Clubs in the colleges and schools is aimed at creating proper awareness about tourism among the youth.

History of Chess

Chess has been played and enjoyed by people around the world for two thousand years. The game is said to have been invented in India around the fourth century b.c.,by a Brahmin named Sissa at the court of the Indian Rajah Balhait, where it was called chaturanga. Alexander the Great’s conquest of India brought the game west to Persia. It moved east from India along trade routes into the Orient and west from Persia into Arabia, where chatrang, as the game was later called, then spread across northern Africa and into Europe when the Moors invaded Spain. Ajedrez (as it was known by the Spanish) spread quickly through Europe and had spread even earlier north from Persia into Russia, so that before the discovery of the Americas chess had a firm and established following on three continents as a supreme fascination and test of mental ability, an aesthetic beauty enjoyed by both nobleman and peasant (or shall we say king and pawn?).

Chess is a part of school curricula in nearly 30 countries for obvious reasons. In Russia, it has been part of the curriculum for over 40 years, where “adolescents were encouraged to play chess at a very early age to increase their problem-solving and reasoning skills”.

The benefits of studying and playing chess.

These are some of the benefits

  • Raise intelligence quotient (IQ) scores.
  • Strengthen problem solving skills, teaching how to make difficult and abstract decisions independently.
  • Enhance reading, memory, language, and mathematical abilities.
  • Foster critical, creative, and original thinking.
  • Provide practice at making accurate and fast decisions under time pressure, a skill that can help improve exam scores at school or college.
  • Teach how to think logically and efficiently, learning to select the ‘best’ choice from a large number of options
    Challenge gifted children while potentially helping underachieving gifted students learn how to study and strive for excellence.
  • Demonstrate the importance of flexible planning, concentration, and the consequences of decisions.
  • Reach boys and girls regardless of their natural abilities or socio-economic backgrounds.
  • These observations justify the functioning of a Chess Club in any institution. With these objectives in mind we have decided to reconstitute the Chess Club in SSV College.
