While most of the children like playing cricket or football in their leisure time, there are few young wrestlers in Gujranwala who dream about mastering the sport of Pehlwani and eventually bringing home an Olympics gold medal.
Trained by Shahid Babar Pehlwan, these young sportsmen practice wrestling daily just like their fathers and other elders.
A famous sport in Punjab, Pehlwani is a local form of wrestling played in many western countries.
Known as the Sher-e-Punjab, the trainer himself has participated in many international events and has high hopes for all the little pehlwans he has been training.
However, Babar thinks these pehlwans in the making cannot do much without government support and has urged it to ensure their training abroad.
