Traditional games

Ok, seriously - I have a blog-block.  I come to the laptop all fired up to write a post - and immediately, everything fizzles out.  I'm not having any trouble writing otherwise.  Just the blog.  I've got to work it out, have to think of something.

Why I mention this is that I actually intended to write about my experiences with traditional games, while mentioning my article on reviving traditional games that appeared in this Saturday's DH Living.   But now, all I feel like doing is leaving you with the link.  Sigh.

Anyway, do read it - I enjoyed researching and writing about it.  The layout in the newspaper was good too - colourful, with lots of pictures.  If you get a chance, do read it in the paper, because the formatting in this online version is not too good - the paragraphs run into each other.  Anyway, let me stop rambling and give you the link.  Here it is - Reviving good old fun.

Remember kids playing "gilli-danda" don't see that anymore.

Hey..did read the article and was pleasantly surprised to chance upon your blog! The articles are lovely. The best part is I just got a custom made hand stitched mat and hand painted pista shells for pawns just last week and the husband and I are re- addicted to it! :)

Traditional games should definitely be revived...it was so much fun...i remember playing lot of outdoor games when we were kids - kho-kho and kabaddi...but today's day and age is just about playstations and Ipads...Sad!!
