THE MEMORIES OF CHILDHOOD GAMES
It was just yesterday we were discussing childhood games that we all have played but we miss them now. I mean it when I say I wouldn’t mind booking even last minute flights if someone asks me to go to India and relive those moments again. So here are few more childhood games that I missed telling you about, yesterday. So go ahead in my article and relive your personal moments.
HIDE AND SEEK:
Hide and seek is very much loved by people of all the places not only in India but also outside the country. There is one seeker in this game who has to find all the other players in the game, each time a player is found out, he/she has to join in the search for the other players. There are some other versions of this game too but this is the most popular one.
Kho-Kho hasn’t lost its identity even today and the best thing is that it is still played as a part of the nation’s games list. Teams are required to chase down and tag the players of the opposite team to win this game. The chasing team sends out nine players onto the field and they sit in a straight line with alternate players facing opposite sides, chasers have to make sure that they catch the runners before the stipulated time which is usually around 9 minutes per inning.
The Lattu or the spinning top is a popular game that is played in many parts of India even today. This is the game where you actually spin the Lattu or the spinning top with speed and then leave it on the ground. The Lattu spins and at the same time, you have to pick it up into your palms. It used to tickle a lot but now when I remember all of that, I miss my childhood.
This is a game that is well known to kids in India. This game involves the use of round glass marbles that are easily available at the neighborhood shops. The main motto of playing Kancha is to collect as many of them as you can by striking the opponent’s marbles. Kancha has got no particular rules but children were so innovative and extra smart that they used to come up with different versions and rules of their own.
Chor-Police as the name suggests, has thieves (chor) and then there is the police. The players in this game are divided into two teams. The police is assigned the task of catching the thief and then the turn changes. It is one of the most popular games played by children all over the world with different names and a slight change in rules, but the overall objective remains the same. Don’t you think you are tired of traveling in those business class flights, live a life full of meetings and eat nothing but just orders and tasks? Go free yourself for a while just like I way I am going to do. Stay in touch with me to know more about how I got the chance of booking cheap flights to India through an online travel agency called Indian Eagle and then flew to my birthplace to live with the child inside me again. I am sure my son Aarav is going to be astonished with the life that we all lived. Adios!
