Kreeda Just Play – A Book by Vinita Sidhartha
Just Play! Life Lessons from Traditional Indian Games is a book that takes you back in time through the fun and laughter of these games. Every game - from Panch Kone to Solah Seedi to Aadu Puli Aatam - represents or captures an aspect of life and the world. Unlike life, games can be played again and again, to get it right.
While making mistakes in the real world has a lasting impact, making mistakes in a game has limited consequences. It is through mistakes that we learn and grow. These games reduce life’s complexity to a replica of manageable elements and size. They enable the player to view situations calmly and objectively so as to isolate the core of the problem. And therein lies their charm and relevance.
With fun and laughter, the book Just Play! enables us to learn valuable life lessons from these traditional Indian games.
