Malleswaram Grounds close to our homes where more than 20 cricket teams of boys played together jostling for space next to each other Malleswaram association where Chess tournaments were played and we could stand and observe Grandmasters like Raja Raviskhar, Manuel Aaron, Praveen thipsay and Parameswaran play and smoke heavily as well!( I mean them!!)
