A few pehlwans (Indian wrestlers) who were practicing their daily training accepted to pose inside the little akhara (gymnasia) which is lost in the fields near Sakalhida, a village in the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh.
It was early in the morning before sunrise in winter and it was still cold.
They are not used to have visitors but they were very friendly and they allowed me to stay for a while and to take as many pictures I wanted.
Those writings on the walls kept my attention as well, on the left it says “Don’t let time go, do something”, on the write “Time is very important” and on the back wall “Jai Shri Ram”.
But I was surprised to see that on the top there was a painting of Lord Shiva with “Om Namah Shivaya” (ॐ नमः शिवाय) written underneath.
This mantra is an adoration to Shiva however akharas are usually following Lord Hanuman so I asked my brother Manish if it was customary but he answered that I should not use my mind the way I do…;)
