When I got out of the train station, I found a crowd of people on the fringe of the square. So I wondered what they were doing there and approached. Many wooden boards were placed and they were playing Japanese Chess called 'SHOGI'. These boards were bigger than usual and the wooden pieces were also bigger.

Although many men were there, the place was silent because everybody played without a saying a word. And a man was just making a move.
