Ganjifa/Playing Cards

Ganjifa/Playing Cards

Languishing Craft

Games are a common passion, a common pastime which cross all sections of the community. Playing or watching games form a highly significant aspect of culture, both because of their importance in peoples lives and their capacity to bring families and communities together and because of the degree of creativity and skill that go into devising them.

No indoor games match the passion with which cards are played in India. One such card game, now facing extinction is Ganjifa.
