Another incident bringing back my childhood memories, peeking out of my office backyard, I observed few of my colleagues were indulging in Gilli Danda , an amateur sport, similar to cricket, that is popular among youth in rural India.
The game is played with Gilli – Danda and a pillow, small pit shaped like a "banana" made in the ground. “Gilli" - A small wooden cylindrical shaped piece of about one inch diameter and 4-5 inches long is sharpened like a lead pencil from both sides. The "Danda" is a wooden rule or stick similar to that used by teachers in the school. The length of the rule is about feet and half long.
Indeed a great indian game played for centuries engaging the mass... interesting isn't it?
