Did You Know?
The popular board game Snakes & Ladders was originally developed in India as a lesson in religious philosophy. Known by names like ‘Mokshapat’ and ‘Gyan Chaupar’, the history of the game is traced to the 10th century CE. With the ‘ladders’ representing virtues and the ‘snakes’ vices, it conveyed the message that good deeds led to heaven and evil ones to a cycle of rebirth.
