There was a serious game of carrom was in progress at the taxi stand in Sari village, Uttarakhand. As soon as Chhavi saw it she too had to play. If only the two of us were around I would have distracted her. But Sohan ji took her to the game. The people told her to wait for a minute as they were at the end of an important game.

She was barely standing above the board. We don’t play this at home as well. After 2-3 shots she was happy to leave the game. If Chhavi would have not insisted on joining the game, I don’t think I would have got an opportunity to click a picture!

Anu I guess it is going to be the same once she grows up a little. As of now she can disturb anyone and anything.

One of my favourite games…..carrom is like a way of bonding among cousins and friends….from the loud commentary by the rival players to the intentional sudden noise made to prevent the rival lose his aim, this game never ceases to be fun….I am fairly good at it too…now we play carrom at college whenever we get a free hour :)

Ahh Carrom board..haven’t played or seen one in long time. kids in this generation are more into X-box/Wii/Play Station. Your post has taken me to good old childhood memories.
