The Indian Political counterpart of the game, Angry Birds. Replaces the birds with those supporting(and those brandishing their own version of anti-corruption movements) Anna Hazare and the vile pigs with the PM and various members of the current government.

Once upon a time, in the tender innocence of childhood, you chanced upon an Archie Comic in the book shop, and BAM! You were transported to the world of 1950s America, complete with the Choklit Shoppe, boys with guitars, girls with pom-poms, expressions like 'Holy Cow!', where it was no work and all play and you felt like the coolest kid 'cause you read Archie Comics

Usage

Can I read your Tinkle?
Only if I get your Archie Comic.

Yet another running game, in which any runner who is caught must join hands with the catcher and they must catch the remaining runners together. Any runners caught must join the catchers, hence forming a chain(saakhli). Naturally, this becomes harder as the length of the chain grows. Variations include a version in which the chain breaks up into pairs, significantly upping the chaos factor(called Chinese Saakhli, though this may be disputed.)
This game is preferred over normal pakda pakdi by the fatty bombalattys among us, as the burden of being the catcher is mitigated somewhat.
