Gili Danda is one of India's oldest games. The game is played with two sticks, a big one called a danda and a smaller one called a gili, which are used to strike each other. The player balances the gili on a stone in an inclined manner (similar to a see-saw), with one end of the gili hitting the ground and the other end in the air, while standing in a small circle. The player then hits the gili at the raised end with the danda and flips it into the air. The player strikes the gili when it is in the air, trying to reach it as high as possible. After striking the gili, the player must run beyond the circle and hit a pre-determined point before the gili is recovered by an opponent.
