Once upon a time our homes and hearts were ruled by various wonderful games. We neglected these games when our joint families became nuclear families and when we lost our childhood virtues. These games taught us mathematics and management skills. They strengthened our brain and brawn. They taught us to accept failure, to appreciate winners and to face the various situations of life.
What will you do if you get a chance to go back to your childhood?
Childhood Olympics is a tournament of around 30 childhood games such as Kothankallu (knucklebones), Irkkilkali (Mikado). The tournament will have two segments- Seniors and Juniors.
