Lagori: Seven Stones, one of the most ancient games of the Indian subcontinent whose history dates back to the Bhagwata Purana, a Hindu religious text that is claimed to be written 5000 years ago, which mentions Lord Krishna playing the game with his friends. This traditional sport has been played for the last 5 millennia. It is believed to have been originated in the southern parts of the Indian subcontinent. It was one of the most popular outdoor sports in India and Pakistan in the 1990s but it is now almost extinct with very few people playing the game. It often boasts of being the more aggressive version of dodgeball.
