This video is restricted from playing on your current domain Error Code: PLAYER_ERR_DOMAIN_RESTRICTED Vision is needed, not visibility, to succeed — This was the following message put forward by Darpan Inani, one of India’s leading chess players and the only visually impaired Indian to win an international event in the sport.Speaking exclusively to Republic TV on the 70th Republic Day, the 24-year-old stated that any individual, even though he may be limited by his vision, can succeed if he has an imagination.  “It requires imagination, and that is what is meant by vision. Visibility is not required and if you have the visualization ability, you can play the game,” when asked how he manages to play a sport without having the sight to see. “My parents have been the backbone always, and they have supported meticulously in whatever I do. They leave the decision making to me, and once I take it, they support me in every endeavor that I venture in. It’s the mindset (when asked why people give up). At times, we tend to give up or feel depressed because we expect life should be easy….Whenever we are seeing the road is not easy, we tend to give up,” the 24-year-old said.

It requires no modification of rules, and I can play at par with them,” Darpan added. “My life changing story? When I was at eight years, I started my formal school from third standard. I was admitted to a normal school and that was the life changing moment for me because integrating with the mainstream, it changed my life entirely. It was definitely a challenge.  A lot of schools at that point refused to admit me or they were apprehensive about how will we cope up or how will we teach him.” LIVE TV FOLLOW US First Published: 26th January, 2019 14:31 IST Written By The chess master, who intends to become the first visually impaired Indian grandmaster, also mentioned that chess is the only sport which lets him compete with others on an equal level.
