During a wrestling competition held in one of the streets of Kolkata, West Bengal, India, a contestant literally throws his opponent out of the game. Previously, wrestling was a popular sport. However, in recent times, due to lack of sponsors, the sport is facing hard times and its popularity is on the decline. These street competitions are held to popularize the sport and these give the enthusiasts a chance to enjoy the sport almost at their backyard.
