Forgotten Indian Games


As time passes by there must be many things that you must have lost on your way. The same case applies to games too. Some games eventually fit into the category of ‘endangered’ and ‘extinct’ with time. Here are some of the forgotten Indian games that hit the ‘extinct’ list.

Kancha 

How interesting it would be to play with marbles! Well, Kancha is a ‘ game of marbles. ‘The number of players can go up to any number. This can be played as an outdoor game although it looks like an indoor game. The game strategy is as follows. First, you have to gather as many round marbles as possible. Now you have to keep one marble with you. Aiming at any one of the marble and striking it with the one in your hand will fetch you the points. You can collect as many marbles as possible by giving it a correct shot.

Gilli Danda 

How about playing modified versions of baseball and cricket. For this, all you need is a stick of length about 1 meter which is called danda, and a small stick about 15 cm with its edges sharpened which is called the Gilli. The game is played by two teams. One of the teams strikes the Gilli which is placed in a small pitch and then struck. While Gilli is hit the opposite team tries to smack it. If by chance the Gilli is caught the hitter with danda is out of the game. The farther the Gilli goes is what counts in to give you points.

Lagori Or Pithu 

To aim at something isn’t an easy task. Lagori is a game that is all about aiming. The game is quite simple. It can be played as two teams. First, all you need is to find a flat stone, then you have to pile them up. You need a ball in your hand and you have to strike the stacked stones. When one team strikes at the pile, a member from another team tries to rearrange it meanwhile the hitter team takes the ball and throws at the opposite team. If the ball hits them, they are out!

Next time you are bored and you have nothing to do, try one of these!
