Did you know... India is the birthplace of chess. The original word for “chess” is the Sanskrit Chaturanga, meaning “four members of an army”—which were mostly likely elephants, horses, chariots, and foot soldiers.
Forget the olympics...Indian villages have something more exciting to offer...!! Punjab plays host to something much more exciting, and rustic, every year. Kila Raipur, a small village in Ludhiana, comes alive between February and March each year, as it plays host to a sports festival- Punjabi style. Hundreds of people throng to this fair, some to watch while others to participate.
