Oonch neech ka papada

The lines we used to say while playing this game called ‘Up and Down’ in English could not create their charm in young generation. But it’s one liners ‘Oonch mangi neech’ and ‘Hum tumhari oonch pe’ will be always missed by us.

Tip Top

‘Tipy tipy top, what color you want’ remember? Little ones coming to everyone in the house saying this line with some paper made structure on their finger tops and asking to make a choice.

Skipping Games

Playing multiple different games with just a single rope and equally enjoying in all. Sounds amazing!! In fact I am sure nobody will deny if I say it felt equally good too. What say girls, agree?

These games were more like girls stuff and fascinated everyone from the age of 4 to 14. Those weird patterns to clap used to bring immense pleasure.

Lattu

‘Lattu’ which is called Top in English is a representative toy of the era when such simple toys were the only choice for children. The entertainment which requires expensive variety of games now was then confined to the spinning of colorful tops.

Aankh Micholi

One blind folded kid chasing all others while they try to tie him in knots. This again is a game full of excitement which is going out of the list of 21st century children.

Poshampa

‘Poshampa bhayi poshampa, daakuon ne kya kiya’ remember this rhyme? Kids used to sing it while making a human train pass through a gate made by two other kids and trying to capture any one at the end of the  song. Awesome days!
