In the right hand they hold a wooden baton. Then they go round in circle, singing and hitting the wooden baton with the other girl once to the right and then to the left.

CHAUPARThis is an old traditional game played by both rural and urban women. This game is also called Chausar or Pachisi. This is played in cross -shaped board which has 8 squares on length side and 3 cells on the width side, totaling 24 squares on each side. This is played by four girls each sitting on the four sides. Each has 4 different colored counters. This is played with dice and six cowrie shells. The center cell is called charkoni. Each piece moves down the center line squares of its own side and then makes a counter wise circuit of the board, traveling along the sides of the others and again enters the center column to enter the charkoni. The aim of the player is to get all his counters safely into the charkoni.
Scoring is done by throwing the cowrie shells on the floor and counting the number of shells that fall face up. During the travel, if the counter is not in the cell marked "X", it may attack the counters. A captured counter has to begin its journey once again.
