A. Love for Krida-Patram

The much-liked game of cards was very much prevalent in ancient India, and was called Krida-Patram. Made of cloth, ivory, tortoise shell, mother of pearls, inlaid or enamelled with precious metals, these cards were fabulous pieces of art. They carried motifs from the Ramayana and the Mahabharata along with ancient artwork. They were usually circular in shape, although oval and rectangular cards were also there. Cards were placed in a wooden box with a lid depicting mythological figures. The royals and the noble class of the era patronised the game.

C. Ganjifa in Medieval India

Ganjifa was the name given to playing cards in medieval India. They were played in almost all royal courts. There is evidence that supports the existence and use of playing cards in Rajputana, Kashyapa Meru (Kashmir), Utkala (Orissa), the Deccan and Nepal too. The Mughals also featured among the patrons of this game, albeit their cards were different from those used in the ancient Indian royal courts.

E. Different Kinds of Cards in the Days of Yore

Card-making needed patience and meticulous hard work, for cards were hand-made and traditionally painted. Rulers engaged painters to prepare customised cards for them while commonplaces used cards made by local artists. Several cloth pieces were glued together to get the required thickness. There existed a variety of cards, as members of all strata of society played them.

G. The Transition of Traditional into Modern

The art of hand-made cards survived for centuries, then decayed with time, and finally become extinct when the Europeans introduced printed paper cards in the 17-18 centuries. And with that, the memory that Indians played their own cards also faded into oblivion.
