Calcutta never ceases to amaze. Five loincloth clad men are gathered under a neem tree tucked away in a corner of the Malik Ghat on the banks of the River Hooghly near the Howarh Bridge. They are Kushti devotees. Kushti or Pehlwani is an ancient form of wrestling begun in the Mughal era, dating back to the sixteenth century, in the Indian sub-continent and south central Asia. The wrestlers chanting was recorded as they concluded their workout.
