Indian Games which now disappear

Listed below are some of the games that were once played across the streets of the country, which are now fast disappearing, taking away the fun & frolic along with it !

Lagori:  Two teams, seven stones, a ball and target.
Lattu: A solid turnip shaped wooden toy, spinning top.
Hopscotch: A tile piece with a flat surface and six boxes drawn in style.

Gilli Danda: Combination of four inch danda and a gilli.
Kancha(Goti):  Rounded green glass balls, strike and play.
Pallanghuzi: A traditional game played in South India, a wooden board with fourteen pits and shells.

Let us keep these games alive, else the next generation will be able to read them about it in the books only !
