Kushti is a form of indigenous mud wrestling that traces back three thousand years. It is still practiced in gyms known as Akharas on freshly dug soil that has been mixed with ghee, turmeric, neem and water. Due to the popularity of cricket and unaided by any official help Kushti is sadly a dying sport. Only six mud-pit ‘Akhadas’ now remain in Kolkata.-

Kushti is a way of life for the wrestlers. They live and train together, following a strict routine of prayers, exercise, diet and work.-
