How Did I Meet P7 M7?
Exactly two months before from the day I am publishing this post I have gone to visit a parents meeting program at the school of my neighbor’s children! The fact is my neighbor went out of the town due to his urgent business needs. Therefore he informed me to take care of their children till they are back.
He also requested me to attend their school meetings to get updated with their children performance. My neighbor‘s children were residing with a maid and their driver who daily drops and pick them from the school and tuitions classes. I didn’t mind helping my neighbor any time and step into the school!
I would say,
It is a good infrastructure school with big classrooms and a vast playground for the children to play. I reached there 1 hour before the meeting schedule. I am always having the habit of reaching anywhere ahead of specified time because I hate getting late! Anyways, I was wandering here and there to explore more about the school.
Suddenly I got a big notice board, where there is much information clipped on it written on different colors of sticky notes. It looks impressive and better other than having a whiteboard with handwritten details! Excuse me; I don’t want to discuss here my childhood!
In the same board,
I saw information regarding the fact that soon the school will be organizing an interschool state level chess competition. Further thought I should ask my neighbor to let his children participate in it if they are useful at chess.
I successfully attended the meeting and came back after taking their reports. As soon as I reached my home, I called my neighbor and informed him about the upcoming chess competition. What I get the answer in reply? Is what I never think of it before!
He says his children are already joined a chess academy few days before and after schooling they use to go there! I got surprised by listening to it since I never come to know about Chess Academies!

They allow a batch to use the projector to discuss any tournament strategies or improving their performance. M7 can also help them to prepare a game plan and chess playing style within a group.

First of all! While discussing with the academy instructor, I also requested him to start the projector. He agreed and showed me its projection output. What I can say for now is that I got impressed with its initial impression. Its display is reasonably bright with fantastic sound quality.
Chess is an excellent source to enhance your mental skills. It can prepare you to think well before doing any activity. An excellent source of practicing creating planning and strategies. So M7 Projector can provide a big help to you in polishing your chess playing skills to prepare for any Chess tournaments or so.
If you are also a student at a Chess Academy, then I think if possible you should buy this projector for your home.
