CRAP !!
India is the birthplace of chess. The original word for "chess" is the
Sanskrit chaturanga, meaning "four members of an army" which were most
likely elephants, horses, chariots, and foot soldiers.
The earliest predecessor of the game probably originated in before
the 6th century AD; a minority of historians believe the game originated in
China. From India, the game spread to Persia. When the Arabs conquered
Persia, chess was taken up by the Muslim world and subsequently spread to
Southern Europe.
