PKS is no more

P K Selvamurugesan, PKS as fondly remembered by many, passed away on 4th of January 2018 after a brief illness. A retired Commerce Teacher from Mahajana HSS, Mettupalayam, he command respect in all aspects.

An ardent chess lover, PKS held the Secretary post of Coimbatore District Chess Association from 2000 to 2010 and served as President from 2010 to 2015. He took the Honorary post of Chief Advisor of CDCA from 2015 till now.

A man of simplicity and principles, was excellent orator and voracious reader. In schools he was attached to various activities like Science Forum, NSS camps, Tamil Literature etc and seem never to idle. A self-effacing personality, who used to take classes for his students and non students at free of cost!! in his home. We have seen him take classes right from 5 am in the morning and after school hours also.

A person known for his constructive views and has remained as quite sea, even in turbulent times. PKS remained true to his signature motto of "Yours in Service of Chess" and have officiated for several tournament under erstwhile secretary TPN. Surprisingly he has not collected a single paisa as fee from any of the organiser and if the organisers have persuaded him to collect, he will distribute the fee to the deputies who have performed with him.

With his demise,we CDCA has lost a trustworthy personality.
