child is chosen to be Suridas by reciting one Hare Krishna mantra. All
the other children represent child Krishna who used to come visit blind
Suridas is blindfolded with a
cloth. All the children come close and move slowly around him, dancing,
singing songs, and chanting Hare Krishna. Suridas tries to catch them.
As soon as he catches one of them, he touches him all over and tries to
discover who he is. The child caught must not make any sound. If
Suridas guesses who it is, he joins the crowd of Krishnas, and the
child caught becomes Suridas. If he guesses wrong, he must try again.
