  1. A very interesting post. I had no idea that hockey was so popular in Pakistan. The version that you have pictured and I assume that is popular we call Field Hockey in The United States. People play it here but Ice Hockey is much more popular.

  3. Hello lovely Baili, Looking at the games you play in your country reminds me of some we were used to play as children. The game you mentioned with the stones...we used to play this as children but had jacks instead. I love playing the game Carroms too. My husband who was born in Calcutta, India brought one of these with him when he emigrated to Australia. It is such a fun game, but I never seem to beat him....he is too good. =) A wonderful and fun post, lovely lady.

  4. How interesting that many of the games you play in your country resemble so many of the ones our children played. Now many of the children are playing on computers instead of outside in the fresh air getting the exercise they need for both mind and body. I'm afraid our country has become one of lazy children for the most part. I was glad to find out when I moved to this area of our country that the schools still promote outdoor playtime and are very into all sports for the children. Enjoy the time you have with your son. Thanks for sharing today.

    1. Thank you dear Carol!

      I am afraid thst you are so right about the children of today who lack physical activities and specially games that regulate the blood circulation in whole body which is essential for mental and physical health.

      Even my own younger both sons try to stck to the computer after being free from their homework but i have put condition that they should play any physical game or atleast ride bike for fifteen minutes. And sometimes i actually succeed in this task.

      I am having great time with my son thank you for kind best wishes dear

  7. Your games are so much like ours. The girls dancing in their colorful skirts is something I think girls all over the world like to do. The game with the stones is similar to our jacks. We toss a small rubber ball in the air. We pick up the jacks before it bounces more than once. The games the the boys are playing are similar to marbles. Board games of any king are a fun family project. Chess is a favorite. I have watched hockey bit never played. Your football is what we call soccer. Cricket is like my favorite sport which is baseball. It shows that we may have slightly different ways of accomplishing things but things are so much the same.

  11. Playing games is very important.

  12. Olá Baili!
    Já joguei alguns desses jogos quanto eu era criança. O primeiro jogo, aqui no Brasil é o jogo da "amarelinha". Esse da cinco pedrinha é muito legal. Já brinquei muito desse pega se puder. O jogo do xadrez também é muito bom.
    Adorei conhecer um pouco do seu País.
    um beijo querida!
    Uma boa semana!

  13. Great activities for kids and adults. Many games are similar to what we play or used to play. Now kids stay in and stay on computers or phones.

    1. Agree with you Red!

      But though technology has facilitated people in many ways but has put some negative effects on them too .

      Kids, youngsters and adults are mostly captured by the "BIG NET"

      It's not the fault of advancement but the lack of insight in brains of people who prefer false temptations over the foresight advantages

  15. Beautiful photos and images, Baili! Making time to play is so important, both for children as well as adults.

  16. This was a magical post. Thank you for sharing. Some of these games I used to play too.

  17. Thank you Baili, that was so thoughtful of you to do a post about how the children play - much the same as ours it would seem - using their imagination. We have the same sports and board games like yours - especially chess - which I find too hard and have never managed to learn! Kids used to play conkers (where you pierce and put horse chestnuts on strings and hit each others conker until one breaks) they don't allow it in schools now as it is a bit aggressive and fingers get hurt! Thanks for sharing more about your part of the world. Betty

  18. How wonderful to see all those people out there playing games together!
    Sadly, here in the UK only a few young people are seen playing games...most are indoors and occupied with their tablets and phones.:/
    I wish they could all see your post...then maybe they'd begin to realise what they've been missing!
    Thank you SO much for this, my dear Friend.
    Such an important message here! :))

    Big Hugs xoxoxo

  19. We are so similar the world over ... I recognize many of these games from my childhood and my children's childhood. I wish more people could see how alike we all are. You are doing a great deal to educate many of us about that, baili.

    I hope you have a good visit with your son. Is he leaving temporarily or does he wish to move away? Thank goodness for computers for keeping in touch, either way.

  20. I think learning, playing and sharing things in life is vital, and games are important. I love how many games are passed down the generations. With more emphasis on technology it is so important that all types of games are encouraged.
    An interesting post, and I enjoyed your images too.

    All the best Jan

  21. It was interesting to see all the games you play, Baili. The game you mentioned with the stones on the ground looks very similar to a game we call "jacks" here. But we use small star like jacks, and a little ball instead of a stone. Your cricket football looks like our "soccer" here. : )

  23. Thank you for sharing the games that the people in your country enjoy, dear Baili. They remind me of the games I used to play when I was growing up. I haven't played chess in decades, but it is an awesome game. Field hockey (your hockey) and soccer (your football) are well known in Canada and the US. Cricket is not well know, but I know that in Hawaii with people from the UK, India, Pakistani and other countries in that parts of that region of the world are mad about it. I've watched them play with no clue of what was going on. Have a good one. I'll be back. Terry wants to go on a walk!

    1. Glad to hear from you dear Louise!

      It is strange that cricket is not popular in Canada as in world cup all main countries participate except America and Canada where Baseball is more popular.
      Hope you enjoyed your walk with Terry my friend!
