All the children were playing stappoo (hop-scotch) in the lane. Avantika and her sister Nandita were also playing. But Nandita was not able to play the game in the right way. Avantika: Listen to me carefully, Nandita.Understand the game.
Throw the marker (thippi) in the first box. Then one leg jump over this box into the next one. Keep in mind, you can put both your feet down together only in the boxes marked 4-5 and 7-8. Take care, your feet should not touch the lines.
If it touches you are out of the game. When you reach the last box, turn around. When coming back, pick up the marker and bring it back. Now, throw the marker in the next box.

Similarly, keep throwing the marker in all the boxes one by one and continue the game.The children started playing again.
Since long, Chachi was watching them play. She too felt like playing with them. She could not keep herself from asking -Can I play with you ? The children laughed aloud.
Avantika : Chachi ! You will play ?
