|Samata - Sanskrit Commands used in Balagokulam|
There is an air of orderliness and collectivity in all the Balagokulams. Use of some of the Sanskrit commands make it more organized and enjoyable. These commands can be used during games, when we have to make children stand in a line or make two teams, form a circle, etc. Use of these commands will enable the Shikshak to get the formation done quickly.|
