Pithoo is a conventional Indian game and can be identified by many more terms from different parts of the country. They are:
Ezhu kallu(Tamil Nadu) and widely known as Saat Patthar.
I used to play pithoo during my good old school days and kept missing it after I left school. In my sophomore year, I happened to play this game with my classmates on a short notice, when suddenly our class was cancelled. We immensely enjoyed and had fun playing for 2 hours and still wished not to go back to the class. Even the benevolent azure of the day seems unforgettable. Subsequently, we started playing pithoo frequently.
This game is really wonderful which produces intense feelings of euphoria and aglows your inner souls. Sadly, pithoo is losing its prominence and descending from our culture. So, lead yourself in a manoeuvre and try out getting mud-smeared playing this game.
1. This game is played with two equal opponent teams.
2. Team A impinges on the stack of 7 stones by throwing the ball and intends to rebuild it while avoiding being hit by any player of the opponent team (by the tennis ball).
Also each team player gets 3 attempts to hit the stack.
3. All the players of team B are fielders and have to hit the members of team A, preventing them from building the stack of stones. The players (of team A) who are hit by the ball lose their tries through the corresponding match.
4. If team A happens to build the stack, then they have a pithoo, else team B gets its turn to break and reconstruct the stone-mound.
5. Most important is to keep enjoying and having fun all through the game. **And woohoo you’ve done it**.
