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:
