Kushti wrestling is is a life of dedication. Every action every meal every thought what is focused on training. Living together the wrestlers inspire each other how to train harder and to focus that whole life on the sport.
For the next few weeks I will be featuring images from my new book http://www.blurb.com/b/9368373-india India, a Life of Devotion is a collection of photo-stories taken by documentary photographer Chris J Dade. Each one a unique insight into an ancient Indian practice (Kushti Wrestling, Vedic Chanting, Kalari Martials Arts and Mallakhamb) rarely witnessed by the western eye. They are a record of extraordinary devotion and a celebration of the possibilities of what we can achieve through dedicate, conviction and focus. The book depicts those who attempt to transcend the usually human conditions and their limitations in order to experience something far more greater through the mastery of the body and mind. #india #documentaryphotography #books #indianstreet #indialove #indiaphotography #humanity_shots_ #hinduism #devotion #kushti #kushtiwrestling
