This game is for two teams of at least five players each. Each team
lays out a row of sticks, which represents the ocean. The players
represent Hanuman jumping over the ocean to search for Sita in Lanka.
The sticks should be about eighteen inches (2.5m) apart. There must be
as many sticks in each row as there are players on each team. As soon
as the starter says, “Hanuman, hop!” the first player on each team hops
on one foot over every stick, picks up the last stick in the row, and
still standing on one foot, he taps the player who is next in the line
on his team. This player then hops over all the remaining sticks, picks
up the last one, and returns. The next player after him proceeds. Any
player whose foot touches a stick must go back to the first stick and
start over. The same rile holds if anyone puts both feet on the ground.
The first team to pick up all of their sticks wins.
