Jeetu Pahalwan vs Aabid Pahalwan
In two minutes, this 2011 contest captures the spectacle and energy of kushti. It's a battle of youth vs experience, with young Jeetu not only withstanding Aabid's unwarranted aggressiveness but in the end controlling and subduing his larger opponent. Amazing the throng of spectators, Jeetu executes an exciting 6-second turnabout with spider-like agility, and big and strong Aabid is down and out.
I have no more details on this match than those the brief description ansuia1974 provides. On Jeetu himself, I highly recommend the excellent KUSHTI Traditional Indian Wrestling blog and, for more beautiful photos, Deepak Ansuia's blog dedicated to Jeetu (in Hindi).
