Chungi with Pappa

Kanika took her father’s hand and went outside to play catch and throw with Chungi (small bundle of tyre pieces tied together like a ball). Both of them played together by tossing the chungi back and forth.

“Pados ke bache chungi kehlte hain, toh inko bhi kehlne ka mann karta hai. Isliye khet se ane ke baad shyam ko kabhi kabhi inke saath main kehlta hoon.” (The neighborhood children play chungi. Seeing them, my children also wanted to play. So, whenever I get time after coming from the farmlands, I try to play with them.) said the father.
