SEVEN STONES (Pitthu/ Lagori/ Teepu)
It is played by two teams of 5 to 6 players each. From one of the teams, a player initially throws the ball on the stones and once the stones fall on the ground, the team attempts to re-organize the 7 stones one on top of each other. The opponent team meanwhile tries to hit all these players will the ball below their knees. The first team to meet the objective is declared the winner.
Every day after kids complete a few cricket games in the evenings, most of them return to their homes. The left over kids who have the license to go home late, play this game for an hour on average every day. These players have that uncanny ability to reorganize the stones at an amazing speed that no other countrymen would do. I’m sure we’ll have excellent players in this game and one of the medals is ours for sure.
Extra investment: This game needs no big playgrounds or set ups. All it needs is a set of 7 stones, a tennis ball and a street without traffic.
