Parents have talked to me about the terrible financial burden they have to bear when they carry the Malaysian flag. Is chess really for the rich only? Unless you treat it as only a hobby then I can testify that it is not cheap.
Then what about the talented but financially not so well off. There are parents who are just teachers and yet they have a gifted child. Can something be done for them?
I dont have the answers yet but I hope some of our great chess minds may want to apply themselves to this problem. That to me will be time well spent. We need more solutions to real issues and not people creating more imagined problems.
