Bhopal, Oct. 19 (ANI): Hundreds of people gathered to witness Bhopal's famous buffalo fight, which forms integral part of post-Diwali celebrations.
The buffalo fight requires a lot of preparation and training.
Buffaloes decked up with painted horns and feathers fought at the local village ground in the Sehore district as ecstatic villagers wildly cheered on.
While controlling a raging buffalo, a man was almost tumbled by it.
Apart from four months of training, the competing buffaloes are fed with rich food and lots of clarified buttermilk to enrage them.
"We start preparing for the event almost four months back. We feed the buffaloes with Soya bean, corns and ghee (clarified butter). In short we take care of it like our own children. When a buffalo wins, people praise the owner for taking good care of it," said Anil Parmar, a local.
The buffalo that manages to chase its rival out of the marked field is declared the winner. (ANI)
