Khel Khel Mein
A competition for students for designing Toys and Games Based on
Indian Values, Culture and Heritage
About the Competition
Honourable Prime Minister Shri. Narendra Modi, in his address to the nation on the 73rd Independence Day, has urged the youths of our nation to come up with indigenous toys and games reflecting Indian values.
Inspired by Hon. Prime Minister’s challenge, Muktangan Exploratory together with its associates is organizing a competition – Khel Khel Rein, aimed at harnessing the creative talents among the young minds to design Toys and Games based on Indian Values, Culture and Heritage. It is envisaged that the participants will not only conceive an idea of a Toy or a Game but also to realize these ideas innovatively.
An entry can be based on one or multiple themes — i.e. combination of Indian Values, Culture or Heritage.
A Toy is usually recognized as a small representation of something familiar, such as an animal or a person or a device to play with. A toy is generally played individually and has no specific rules to play. Typical examples would be a doll, spinning top, etc.
Entries related to Toys are expected to be suitable for age group 1O — 15 years.
Game is a structured form of play with specific rules. Usually undertaken for entertainment or fun and often played by more than one player. Typical examples could be Board Games, Electronic Games, Software Games, etc.
A Project can be described as a series of activities or tasks that need to be completed in order to reach a specific outcome. A set of linputs and outputs required to achieve a particular goal.
Submissions in the Competition will be in two steps:
Step 1 – Idea
One page document stating
- The Idea of the Toy or Game or Project that team has
- Elaborating the Idea like the theme of the Idea, method of the implementation planned for the idea, the research done around the idea, a sketch,
Step 2 — Design & working model
Along with the one page document participants are required to submit a working model of the idea (the concept). Details of the model like material used, orthographic drawings, photos of the model, the rules of the game, software codes, etc.
