Gilli "िगल्ली" -danda "डन्डा" is a game played by children in India and Pakistan. It is usually played by using a small round stick, about as long as a baseball or cricket bat. This is the danda. There is another smaller stick, round in the middle and sharp at the ends. This is the gilli . The game gilli-danda is similar to cricket. In this game what you have to do is, using the danda, to hit hard on the gilli. This causes the gilli to flip and when in the air you have to smack it like you are playing cricket. The one who hits the gilli the farthest will win.
