Legend says a wise man invented a game to represent the kingdom consisting of the king himself, his queen, rooks, bishops, knights, and pawns, all of which were important.
This was to convince his tyrannical Indian king, Shihram, of the importance of each resident of his kingdom.
He then requested the king to put one grain of wheat on the first square, two on the second, four, eight, sixteen and so on, until all squares were filled.
Surprisingly, the king found that such an enormous amount of wheat did not exist!
The king learnt two lessons – of life & of not underestimating small things in life!
