Indigenous games highlight the rich culture and heritage of a place. Not only do they play an important role in uniting every member of the community but also leads to an all-round development of the body and the mind.

Like other states of India, Assam is also home to several indigenous sports. Some of the popular indigenous games of Assam are Dhup Khel, Peng Khel, Ghila Khel, Tang Guti etc. These games help in enhancing intellectual, physical and mental ability in a person. Through these games, the youths residing in urban areas can reconnect with their rich culture and build favourable social interaction.

However, the irony is that, with the passage of time, the number of people who played indigenous games diminished and the young generation started developing more interests towards games like cricket, football etc. But, with a combined effort from both the Government and public, such games could be revived again and saved from fading away forever. This could be done by holding periodic competitions on indigenous sports, including various indigenous games in the school’s and college’s extra-curricular activities etc.

Your suggestions are welcome on how indigenous games of Assam could be saved from fading away forever.

My suggestion is that these Indigenous Games of Assam can be introduced in other states during their cultural festivals. This should be organized partly by citizens of Assam and partly by citizens of Assam who are residing or working in other states. The team should include both locals of Assam and other citizens of Assam in other states. This team should compete against players of that state that is hosting the cultural festival. This will help in making these games prominent and keep it alive.
