Kerala News > Martial arts village in Kerala turns into a boxing ring

Pooladikunnu (Kerala), Aug 3 (ANI):
Here is a village where almost everyone, be it the old or the women, has a passion for boxing. From 10-year-old boys to 30-year-old housewives, every third person at Pooladikunnu village is aspiring to be a boxer....

While for parents, who often spend lifetime savings on educating their children, boxing has suddenly become the one-stop ticket to ensuring a career for their wards who are facing cutthroat competition in the ever-shrinking job market.

"...boxing has suddenly become the one-stop ticket to ensuring a career for their wards..."

How? By becoming trainers for eternally warring Indian politicians?!

It almost seems that if Kerala's famous son Shankaracharya were alive today, he might have written "Bhaja Boxingam" instead of "Bhaja Govindam"!
