My sister is a vet, and a couple of years ago spent a year in Jaipur working as a volunteer for a group called Help in Suffering.
After she came back she told me about a game called “Cubbidi”(sp?) that was quite popular in India. I am not sure if she was having me on, but it sounds like a version of the kids game “Red Rover”.
Apperently the game involves ‘catchers’ having to capture their opponents without taking a breath. To prove that they are not breathing, the cathchers must repeatedly shout 'cubbidi", as they cannot breath in while doing so.
Now I could understand it if this were simply a kids game, but my sister informed me that it was quite a popular competitive sport in India.
So, does anyone know whether this is true, and could they give me a more detailed description of the rules of the game?
