The fascinating marble game of rural teenagers is on the verge of extinction.

 Saifur Rahman Shamim, Kurigram :

The traditional games of Golla Chut, horse race, stick game, Latim Ghurano, Kanamachi Bhon Bhon Dhairabanda, Ludu, Kabaddi etc. are getting lost in modern times.  One of these rural interesting games is the game of marbles.  The game of marbles was played on the path of the village, in the courtyard of the house or in the yard. The once most attractive game of marbles played by the rural boys of rural Bengal is now on the verge of extinction.

 A game of marbles requires at least two players.  Three, four, five, seven and eight players can also be played together.  Clear plains are suitable for this sport.  First, draw two lines.  A hole should be made four to five cubits from the line so that a marble can sit in that hole.

 The player whose marble falls into the hole or comes closest is first, the next closest is second, and so on, third, fourth, fifth, seventh and eighth.  The player who goes first gains the ability to cast donations.  On the first donation move, each player deposits 1\2\3\4\5 marbles into their hand.

He sits outside the table and gently scatters the marbles around the hole.  The other players then discard a specific marble.  That is, any marble except that marble has to be replaced by leaving another marble.  If he can then he wins that donation.  If not, the next game gets a chance to play in the same way.

 But if the dropped marble or several other marbles touch the thrown marble, that player is fined and the next player plays with the fined marbles to spread them to win the donation. Whoever wins the donation restarts the game again.  This continues until the opposing player runs out of marbles. These traditional village games will seem like a fairy tale to the boys and girls of today’s generation.  Today is not that day.  There are no old rural sports.
