Incredible India

I’ve got the necessity for playing “the game of association” in my blood.

I’ve always been trying to assign some shape, colour, taste, etc. to abstract words, i.e. words that don’t have a physical equivalent.

Почему в шахматах нет секса?

Невероятно сложная тема. От умственных усилий разболелась голова, но идея о том, как можно начать рассуждение, отталкиваясь от многозначительной фразы «Почему в шахматах нет секса?», так и не пришла. Решила раскрыть карты сразу и сказать правду: красивого предисловия не будет, виртуозных экзерсисов тоже не предвидится. Все предельно просто и с повествовательной интонацией: в шахматах нет секса.

Sometimes it seems to me the word combination “chess and sex” is a striking example of oxymoron – a figure of speech in which apparently contradictory terms appear in conjunction. But why is it so?
