Last Sunday, I and my friend Rajdeep played Squash at Hawthorn Sport center. But Today, I was just recalling my all games which I used to play during my Childhood. It left me with laugh and regret.
Langadi, Kho-kho, Hide & Seek were most frequently played games in school. But I am not going to write about those games. Those were the games which were unique and funny which I used to play in Ahmedabad.
“Kayo color?” [which color?]
Color-color was the Game. A main player announces any random color and then everybody has to run away from him/her. Everybody then has to search for that color somewhere near by and has to touch it to survive from main player. If anyone would not able to find that particular color and touched by the main player then he/she declares OUT and would be main player in next game.
Ice-Pice had a similar concept of Hide & Seek except wasted Colgate powder still wrapper. One of player has to throw still wrapper as far as he/she can then main player has to run to get it back, as fast as he/she can. Till then everybody has to hide somewhere. A Main player has to get that wrapper back and he put at the ground and circles around it. If anyone found by the main player then he announces his/her name and hit that wrapper with ground two-three times and he/she declares OUT. But if main player is away from wrapper and any of hidden player able to reach at the circle and hit wrapper with ground then Game restarts.
It was Aishwarya Rai who was playing Sattoliyu in the first song of Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam. We have to build a pyramid-type structure using seven stones. Each stone would be larger than other, where larger at the bottom and small at the top. There are two teams of seven players. One by one player tries to break a pyramid with a ball. If player is not able to break the pyramid and ball caught by an opponent then the player who throws bowl declares OUT. Excitement begins when anyone breaks the pyramid of stones. The team who break the pyramid has to run away from the opponent. The opponent players try to hit ball to the players of other side to get them OUT. While on the other side, players try to re-build the pyramid again. If they succeed to re-build it, Everyone shouts S a t t o l i y u … Means, We did it!
As I recall all these games it really feels good but regret too. Because I know that I can recall, write and re-write but can’t go back to my Childhood again.
