Definition

An open public multi use playground of packed red earth. Empty in the summer and used to shoot desert sequences in movies that need cracked ground and dung beetles to go with the eerie music. Empty in the monsoons except for naturalists who come to study the swamp life and wetlands habitats.

The rest of the year it houses simultaneous games of hockey, football, cricket, volleyball, marbles, lagori, lock and key and grandfathers teaching their grandchildren how to ride their first bicycle fitted with trainer wheels and all.

Usage

Munnu: "Ayyo, sorry da, I didn't mean to spill juice on your uniform!"
Dodda Ganesh: "Come to the mud tank after, I'll be waiting..."
