“Reveal your feelings to him,
Tenderly …
Then let Satan break him”
(Abu Nuwas (Abū Nuwās al-Ḥasan ibn Hānī al-Ḥakamī) – Classical Arabic poet, 756-814)

This is a picture of Vinod and his cousin Manish shot in the akhara located at Scindia ghat along the Ganges in Varanasi (Benaras).
The two young men are pehlwani and they often train there before sunset.
Sometimes they also pose for the pictures of the Red Halo collections.
