Pritviraj, pehlwan

"The oldest living city in the world".

 

This morning I took this picture at sunrise near Sankathi Ghat along river Ganga in Varanasi (Benaras).

 

It is a first of the series of a new topic about wrestlers in Varanasi which I show here with no PP work for a change.

 

Here Pritvitraj is posing in a very classic way, he is the local champion of Girkoraman Kushti and trained by a Russian coach.

 

The gym where we did those pictures is facing river Ganga which gave this vivid colors so early in the morning.

 

Pehlwan means wrestler in Hindi.
