Childhood is the most lovable stage in our life. As a child, we all loved playing games. Rushing from school to home and gathering all the children from the street and making a whole lot of fuss in the street, getting taunts from the neighbors, cracking innumerable jokes, playing mundane games, being a part of our treasured childhood. Getting back to those memories is something exuberant and jubilant. We can’t turn back to those times, but we can definitely cherish those indelible memories.

It is the most fun filling game in our childhood. One will be blindfolded and has to catch the other mates. The other mates will bait her/him by clapping or giggling around to give some hint less clues. If the child is caught, then it is his/her turn to be blindfolded. Generally, these games are also played in our schools.

If any word matches with the other players, then they will be rewarded with same points, but deducting some points from the original points.

Gilli Danda is the most widely played games in India (mostly rural areas) and is one of the favorite games that we played in our childhood. This game is more or less similar to cricket. The game is played by mostly two teams. Here the player hits the gilli with the help of danda and the far, the gilli, the more your chances of winning. If the gilli is in the air, then the player successfully snatched the points. Before the gilli touches the ground, the player has to touch a certain point before it goes into the hands of other opponents.  So, basically, it is similar to runs in the cricket match.
