A cricket match in Indore
--------------------------------------
Sunday January 6, 2008.

The Ranji Trophy semi-final between Delhi and Baroda played at Indore at the Usha Raje Stadium. Some images from the second day's play. The match was eventually won by Delhi which moved on to the finals where it will be meeting Uttar Pradesh. This was also the day that India lost the infamous second Test Match to Australia and there was a lot of bad blood between both the teams.

A dangal (wrestling tournament) in village Kodariya. Tehsil Mhow, District Indore, Madhya Pradesh, India

I spent around an hour there. Savouring the atmosphere. The noise, the drums, the excitement. Local wrestlers as well as others from Gwalior, Delhi and Haryana were participating. Women were also present among the spectators. And there were female wrestlers too. These included girls who had represented India at the national level. Unfortunately the pressure of work prevented me from staying on and enjoying the full dangal. Enjoy the pictures:
