Snakes and Ladders is an ancient Indian board game ,and we have played that iinnumerable times.
But while palying with my grandchildren I realised it taught us what Life is all about, where a player’s progression up the board represented a life journey complicated by ups (ladders) and downs (snakes) and good against evil..
It teaches us positivity, and we dont have to feel disappointed when we get swallowed by snakes. Very close to the snakes, there are ladders which kindles our hope to reach our ultimate goal.
It has one more strong message. Probably not to get arrogant —the moment we reach the top, we may get swallowed by a snake and reach the bottom in no time. Life can take a 360 degree turn any moment.
