I played many indoor games. I used to love playing carom with my friends. It was very enthralling and fun-filled. Chupan chupai is also something that I used to play a lot back in my childhood. We would play this every evening after sunset. I was able to find some secret spots to hide and give my friends a challenging time.

My brother, my cousins, and I used to play carom, ludo, saapseedi, and UNO. I used to play chess with my father. I learned Rummy too but I did not play much of it. I am glad that I was born in those years when we were not playing only on the phones or tabs.
