The oldest living city in the world”.

This is a picture of Pritviraj and Vinod, who are pehlwans (Hindi word for wrestlers).
I shot it during their training at the gym, at sunrise near Scindia Ghat along river Ganga in Varanasi (Benaras).

A fallacy of composition arises there, those two young men were not at all aware of the sensuality, nor of the ambiguity which is in the series of images.
The poses that I am showing belong to sequences of a basic training that any pehlwan has to do everyday.
The fallacies of ambiguity involve a confusion of different senses however all those pictures are absolutely innocent, it is all about a kind of martial art which is one of the oldest sport in the world.

Pehlwani (Devanagari: पहलवानी, Urdu: پہلوانی), Kushti (Devanagari: कुश्ती, Urdu: کشتی), or modern Indian wrestling, is a synthesis of an indigenous Aryan / Hindu form of wrestling that dates back at least to the 5th century BC and a Persian form of wrestling brought into South Asia by the Mughals.

I have been showing those pictures to Pritviraj and Vinod who kindly accepted to pose for me.

They liked the prints of these series that I gave them.
