Gilli-Danda is a popular rural sport in India. Have you ever played this game in your childhood?

Yes I used to play this game with my friends in our locality. I think such games don?t attract today`s kids anymore.

I heard that this game is more or less similar to Cricket. Is it so?

You heard it right, Shreya. It is similar to cricket but unfortunately it now falls under the category of dying traditional sports. There are hardly any boys whom you will find playing Gilli-danda.

It is believed that Gilli-danda evolved during the time of Maurya Empire. And as Aman said, this game is now really fading away from society. The game is fading away mainly due to busy lifestyle and the sedentary modern life.
