Also known as: Snakes and Ladders, Moksha Padam, Gyan Chaupar
Parama Padam Sopanam (Steps to the Highest Place)
Parama Pada Sopanam means Steps to the Highest Place (where Parama Pada means highest place and Sopanam means steps). This is a traditional version of the popular game of Snakes and Ladders. The game was believed to be symbolic of a man’s attempt to reach God. The ladders represent virtues and the snakes represent vices. The snakes carry names linking them to stories from our epics
Kreeda has slightly modified the traditional game to appeal to today’s children. Done on a 2 feet by 2 1/2 feet canvas, the game is attractively designed and appealing. All the snakes in the games have names such as Bakasura, Kumbakarna etc. which are representative of certain vices. The instruction sheets with the game give a short story of these characters to make it more appealing to children and parents who may not know the tales.
