I HEARD MUSIC AND ANNOUNCEMENTS FROM A NEARBY VILLAGE and wondered what event was happening.  Several workers told me it was a Boli Kela.  They said it was a wrestling match.  I went to check it out, and lo and behold it was an event where the villagers brought their bulls and tried to get them to fight!  I got some great photos of the action.  One fellow said the fighting was quite tame, as it seemed that the bulls couldn’t quite get into it.

I WAS INVITED TO THIS FINALS MATCH (Pardon me, cricket players if there is another name for the event! 🙂  )  My cricket terminology is not the best.  Anyway this boy seemed to enjoy this opportunity.  Here are some shots of him in action, or waiting for action.
