Chennai – A Storehouse of Traditional Games – Talk & Play session – August 23, 2017

The city of Chennai is home to a wide range of traditional games that have been played here for many many years. The temples and monuments are home to numerous boards inscribed on the floors – boards native to Chennai and those that have travelled here through cultural exchange with neighbouring states and some that even seem to indicate an exchange with other countries. The talk will explore some of these games and the influences that perhaps played a role in making them a part of Chennai. Participants will be able to play some of these games after the talk.

On August 23, 2017. 6.30 p.m. onwards

Venue: Savera Hotel, 146, Radhakrishnan Salai Chennai – 4
