Traditional Sports of Assam State

Find out the Traditional Sports of Assam State. Indoor / Outdoor Games / Sports of Assam and Assamese.

Traditional sports played a key role in building health physical fitness , unity and intergrety in society .

Foothball has always been dear to people of Assam . Prior to the cricket madness which has made youngstars armchair experts on the sports , people of Assam has entertained themselves with lots of other traditional sports . I think there should be proper literature on all such sports . Because most of them are not played now . The new generation have not even heard of those sports perhaps .

As I have grown up in village environment , enjoying clean and green house premise and common playground I miss that atmosphere for the next generation . Space constrain is playing a important part kin reducing common space for childrens' playing .

Some sports like HOI-GUDU , TANG-GUTI, BAGH MEKURI, KITE FLYING are slowly dissapearing from the scene . I would like the users of this site to contribute with the names of other such traditional sports .
