lol I replied to this, but I think my comment got deleted.
But because you said no controversy and your comment is allowed to be posted, then I have to say yes controversy. If I write more than my comment will be deleted again 🙃
See i knew you are not here to learn on this topic but here for masala stuff. I will wait for you here to have you done the fake list of the reading and post genuine questions. Giving you the benefit of doubt.
You laid the bait here with the above bold letters and anxiously waiting for someone to take it. Unfortunately someone took that bait with it and started the replies.
I was born and brought up in Ludhiana but never played or watched kabaddi.
Only started watching kabaddi when Badal started the Kabaddi world cup in punjab around 8-9 years back.
Ķabaddi is a very interesting sport especially the punjabi style of kabaddi.
Don't like the Indian kabaddi where all men can stop the raider.
I'm from the UK, so I've never played kabaddi, though I think there are kabaddi teams in the UK.
We have teams from Punjab that get invited to the UK to take part in Kabaddi tournaments.
My dad took me to a few Kabaddi tournaments as a kid in Southall.
I remember being quite traumatised by the drunken behavior of the audience! maybe things have changed now!
But in India I think alcohol is banned at Kabaddi matches? it's good how Kabaddi tournaments take place outside Gurdware in Punjab. They do Ardas before the match, jakare, the granthi Singh is sometimes involved in giving the trophies, I've seen matches where they narrate our Sikh ithiaas etc it's a great move how they include Sikhi in Kabaddi.
