Nobel Prize Laureate Malala Yousafzai was recently spotted playing a game of chess with singer Shehzad Roy.
The social activist took to his Twitter to praise his new ‘student’ and her learning skills.
“Here I am trying to teach Malala how to play chess. Must say that she is a quick learner,” Roy wrote.
Chess is a mind sport and it should be a part of our school curriculum. @ZindagiTrust adopted a govt school, SMB Fatima jinnah which has produced a national champion in chess. Here I am trying to teach @Malala how to play chess. Must say that she is a quick learner pic.twitter.com/ZEhZislrYh

In his tweet, the popular singer also stressed on the need of expanding school curriculums to include extra-curricular activities like chess: “Chess is a mind sport and it should be a part of our school curriculum.”
On the other hand, the young Pakistani education activist has also stressed the importance of collective responsibility to promote the education of young girls on different forums worldwide.
Earlier this year, a school built with Malala’s Nobel Prize money became operative in her home district of Shangla in Swat region.
