Jat Race - a symbol of sacrifice, bravery and hard work with strong determination!


A very popular game among kids in India at one time. It involves a ball and a pile of flat stones (which are stacked on top of each other). One member of a team throws the ball at the stack to knock the stones over. The team  then tries to restore the pile of stones while the opposing team ( known as the hitters) throws the ball at them. If the ball touches a person, he is out and his team continues without him.

Pithu, also known as dikori, lagoori, LingochaPithu (Punjabi), Palli Patti, (Karimnagar), Pitto (Rajasthan), Pittu(Bengal) or Satoliya (Madhya Pradesh) is a game in India involving a ball and a pile of flat stones, generally played between two teams in a large outdoor area.



A member of one team (the seekers) throws a tennis ball at a pile of stones to knock them over. The seekers then try to restore the pile of stones while the opposing team (the hitters) throws the ball at them. If the ball touches a seeker, that seeker is out and the team the seeker came from continues, without the seeker. A seeker can always safeguard themselves by touching an opposite team member before the ball hits the seeker.

  4. Each team contains equal number of players.
  5. Piles of flat stones contain 7 stones.
  6. Hitters cannot run with the ball and hit the seekers
  7. After restoring the pile of stones the player should say lagori 3 times and swipe his hands around the stones.
