Old Indian sport - Mallakhamb

A man performs Mallakhamb (gymnast's pole) during a practice session at a playground in Mumbai. Mallakhamb is a combination of traditional Indian gymnastics and martial arts and it can be traced back to the 12th century. For centuries, the sport has been dormant but is now regaining popularity in the country.

This old sport helps one to be more agile, improves mind and body coordination as well as overall fitness.
