Mr.Santosh Kamath also honored the local chess talent. A total of 40 trophies and cash prizes amounting to 25,000 were given to winners and participants this year. The entire program is sponsored by a Permanent chess fund account set up in the memory of the Late Kallya Devaraya Shenoy.
Dr.Rajgopal Shenoy wants to continue hosting this event each year in the memory of his father, who he says was a good chess player himself. Dr.Rajgopal Shenoy himself is a chess enthusiast and regularly participates in the annual intra KMC chess tournaments, and plays for the TIPS team each year. His dream is to organize a FIDE Rated chess tournament in Manipal. The ManipalBlog team wishes him good luck and a successful conclusion of his dreams!
