Barmer district’s unique way of creating voter awareness: A giant Snakes and Ladders game

Young voters learned their democratic responsibilities through a 1600 square foot game of snake and ladder

Barmer district in Rajasthan is all set to hold a new Limca Book record, for organising the biggest Snake and ladder game in the country. As per reports, the district administration in Rajasthan held a unique Snake and ladder game event on Tuesday, on a 1600 square foot board specially designed to create awareness among voters.

The game had similar rules as the traditional snake and ladder game. ‘Voters’ get bitten by the snake if they ignore norms or cast votes for money, alcohol or any other pressure. Prospective votes also get bitten by the snake if they fail to register on the voter’s list, ignore to vote or involve in spreading rumours.

A ‘voter’ got to climb the ladders if he/she had followed the norms, registered their name in the list and also helped to create awareness among others. Ladders also meant the ‘voters’ have helped others like the elderly or differently abled people to cast their vote.

The assistant district electoral officer Rakesh Kumar reportedly had told the media that the event to be held at the MBC women’s college campus would be the biggest game of Snake and ladder organised in the country and will be entered in the Limca Book of records. Interestingly, the previous Limca Book record for organising the biggest game of Snake and ladder also belongs to the Barmer district.

In 2013, Barmer had organised Snake and ladder game over a 900 square foot flex where schoolchildren were taught the benefits of water conservation. Prepared by the Information Education Communication (IEC) cell of the Public Health and Engineering Department. The huge flex was also moved around to all the schools of the district for children to participate and learn. It was entered in the Limca Book of Records that year. IEC consultant Ashok Singh Rajpurohit had devised the unique idea.

The state of Rajasthan will hold assembly elections on December 7 along with Telangana.
