Snakes and Ladders Native Game
We know you sure own a Snakes and Ladders board in your dusted cupboard, and have fond memories of playing it as a child, maybe in the long, hot afternoons of your summer vacation. But this one is nothing like you've had before. Crafted in an ecofriendly and pollutionfree avatar; handstitched with the finest raw silk fabric, this board demands to be in your playroom, and makes a unique gift that celebrates India's culture and craft. Whatever you know it as, Saanp Seedhi, Vaikuntapali or Paramapadam you're sure to relive your childhood and share a little part of it with your kids with this beautiful game.
Snakes and Ladders, India's ancient board game brings to you 100 squares full of tricks and traps a fascinating race that players of all age groups can take part in! Rooted in our moral lessons; symbolising the ups and downs in life, this game works on sheer luck. While the snakes send you crawling down, and ladders escalate you to the top, the player who reaches the 100th square first would be proclaimed the winner. While ladders symbolise positive behaviours like organic farming, rainwater harvesting, usage of solar power, reuse and recycle, and sensible paper usage, the negative behaviours which degrade the environment like cutting down forests, melting of glaciers, using plastics and oil spills portray are associated with snakes that push the player backwards in the game. After all, education and fun can go handinhand!
