Abstract

Indigenous games of an area are the representation of ancestral legacy of that region. Games have been a vital component of culture since ancient times. Indigenous games of a place are carried over from generations to generations. But due to the impact of globalisation, modernization and technological interventions, tech-games and foreign games have been paving their way in contemporary households. Consequently, the indigenous games are being forgotten. The aim of this paper is to present the characteristics of local indigenous Indian games.
