Lakshadweep :: Sports
As soon as the monsoon winds start blowing, small boys make little round balls with pieces of coconut leaves and let them roll on the sand and then chase it into the gently rolling water of the lagoon. Games on the sand are equally simple but exciting and any object is good enough, be it the cowry, a seed or a piece of coconut wood.

For the slightly older, there is a variation of the Chinese checkers, with lines drawn on the wet sand. In place of flat wooden pieces, small sticks are taken out of coconut leaves.

Amongst the popular martial sports is Malpidutham, a kind of wrestling.
