Traditional games and sports of rural areas in West Bengal
Author(s): Dr. Radha Rani Ghosh
Abstract:
Traditional games and sports can form the backbone of a community which is the part of intangible heritage and a symbol of the cultural diversity of our societies. They reflect on different cultural expressions, and create a bridge between cultures for a better mutual comprehension. We recollect with happiness our childhood games and gadget free days. The purpose of the present study is to explore how the children and youths, especially in rural areas of West Bengal, an economically poor but culturally rich state of India, enjoy their leisure with limited resources available to them. The study also identifies the traditional games and sports of rural areas of West Bengal. Thus in this paper we outline the traditional games and sports of rural areas in West Bengal such as Lathie-Chhora, Dangulli, Kit-Kit, Luko-Churi(Hide and seek), Goli(Marbles or Glass Balls), Lattu(Top), Ghuri(Kite Flying), Rumal Churi(Hanky Thief), Pittu etc.
