About traveling

Games people play. When I’m on the road, I’m always happy to meet people who can do without a display at least some of the time.

These two boys are posing for Gilli Danda. The game is played with two sticks: a large one called a danda, which is used to hit a smaller one, the gilli. It bears many similarities to bat and ball games such as cricket and baseball.Gulli danda is an ancient sport, possibly with origins over 2500 years ago.
The rules vary a lot locally – but it’s always fun (especially when a tourist tries his hand at it and punches holes in the air).
