Mud Wrestlers Of Chinchpokli

Mud Wrestlers of Chinchpokli. Mumbai. For Tehelka Magazine

The Mud Wrestlers of Chinch

In every single corner, crack on the floor, clothes the people wear, comb, toothbrush, fading photograph and even in the food, you will find red mud that forms the flooring in the sanctum sanctorum of the Mahatma Phule Vyayam Mandir in Chinchpokli. 

For the wrestlers, most of them who live here far from their family in Southern Marathwada and Kokan, this is home.
