MALLA; A wrestler’s combat in and beyond the ring.

Story of wrestlers from Mudhol, Karnataka whose fight goes beyond the combat ring.

By Mehak Khajuria

Wresters in Mudhol taluk, Bagalkot district, Karnataka have won state, national and international level medals. Yet they lack basic benefits from sports department like monthly stipend, adequate sports kits, accidental insurance, incentives and cash rewards.

Despite being from a poor economic background, these wrestlers have not dropped even an ounce of passion and wish to achieve big. They continue to battle in and beyond the ring.
