Thoughts exchanged is knowledge gained.
There is a very popular devotional work in Malayalam titled 'Jnaanappaana'(Pot of Wisdom) written by a devotional poet Poonthaanam. It is written in very lucid lnguage that even an illiterate can understand the meaning. It is dscribing the follies and temporalities of human life and chides humans for indulging in temporary plesures and forgetting true love and affection and permanency of moral value life.
There two lines signify our snake and ladder life:
" Randu naalu dinam kondoruththane Thandiletti nadaththunnathum bhavaan
Maalika mukaleriya mannande tholil maaraapppu kettunnathum bhavaan"
( He is addressing God that: 'You make a beggar to enjoy a life of luxury in a couple of days; You also make a King living on hih mansion into a beggar within a few days')
That is what the snake and ladder game hints too.
My observation is this - After buying the Snake and Ladder board, people play it with interest only for a very few days. Thereafter, it remains in a corner untouched and uncared forever. Mostly the dice will be missing.

Ups and downs are the part of our lives and Every down leads us to up
Knowledge is power.
Our life is also galloping here as few have lost their lives. It clearly states the ups and downs of life but we all know that there is a goal which we have to strive hard to reach with these situations that is like throwing this virus from our country.
Lead the leader
In a way, this ladders and snakes game has also many ups and downs. In fact, the game is designed in such a way that human beings can understand that there is nothing in our hands and the luck will decide. Change is there always in our lives which we have to accept and some change will be good for us and bring us a fortune. But some moves are bad and they may take away your fortune.
Ultimately in the game, we have to reach the place where God is there. The entire game is for showing us how difficult to reach God. There are many hindrances in our life and at the same time there are easy ways also and all depends on you how you move on the path reaching him.

Even this challenging situation would ease
It helps to teach us some of the basics of life if we do think it in a deep meaning.
- If we have favor or luck, we may move up very fast but as we feel that we are the king, a snake will bite and takes us down to the lowest point. So never take pride overtake you.
- It helps us to realize that in life, there will be ups and downs but we need to keep on trying without feeling low and at one point, we will be able to overcome the snake and come out with flying colors.
- It helps us to teach our children that winning and losing is part of life and the more we take it sportingly, the more we will be able to enjoy life. When you win, be humble and when you lose try to work more harder and overcome it with a smile.

However, I still wish the game to be slides and ladders. As a game, falling should also be fun. To see it as life also, falling and elevating are part of the life. Both should be accepted and moved on. I am scared of reptiles, that is why such thought emerged in me and continuing to believe in the concept of slides and ladders.
