Ramayana Chaukabara


The above gameboard is of Chaukabara crafted in Kalamkari art. The four safe houses and the central 'Home' squares have special illustrations. This was designed by yours truly. 

Instead of having the usual 'X' sign or a flower design in these special squares, I thought, why not have something different so that while playing the game the kids will also learn a story. The first thing that came to my mind was Ramayana. 

So starting from the topmost safe square going clockwise we have Rama, Seeta, Hanuman and Lakshmana while the central square has Pushpaka Vimana. This is 'Ramayana Chaukabara.'

Warm wishes of Rama Navami to all the readers.
