This is what you chant as you’re getting ready to take down your opponents in a Kabaddi tournament. 14 boys battling out on the playing field each determined to infiltrate their opponent’s grounds. As one man chants the rhythmic Kabaddi, he faces 7 other equally determined players whose one goal is to make sure he does not get past them. Essentially it’s a game of agility, mind games and relentlessness.
This is essentially what was happening at the Kabaddi tournament organized by MMU’s Indian Cultural Society.
This sport is something that has been a part of the Indian culture for ages and the vision of ICS is to make sure it remains that way. The tournament is aimed at making sure the younger generation are made aware of an integral part of the Indian culture and appreciate it for its qualities. Also, killing two birds with one stone, the society aims to promote the advantages and excitement that the game entails.
The ultimate winner was crowned as Team A of S. Devi, and Team B of S. Devi managed to bag a close runner up. In 3rd there were two teams that tied and they were Ex-Malaysian as well as 6U MMU Cyber.
Us at MMU Editorial Squad would like to wish a hearty congratulations to all the winners and participants for expressing your love for the sport, culture and overall camaraderie.
