Milind Dattatraya Manguda Earns Kushti Promoter and Practitioner Award

By Deepak Ansuia Prasad

Milind Dattatraya Manguda, a resident of Kirloskarwadi, India, loves traditional Indian wrestling. There are lots of people working selflessly to preserve and promote the sport and Milind is one of them. Milind has a very popular Facebook page named Kushti Mallvidya. Milind has been updating about wresting event, photos, videos and anything like knowledge about wrestling, wrestling events and wrestlers. These are much useful information by which people not only peep into the world of Maharashtra Kushti but also find a good source of entertainment. His work is recognized by lot of people over internet for its absorbing, informative and entertaining content.
On 22th March, 2014 The Village Panchayat Committe conferred this years' Kushti Promoter and Practitioner Award. The news was printed by many local dailies. I congratulate Milind for doing such a good thing. I wish i could also come to maharashtra and see the kushti culture there.
