About Raipur

This does not have a spiritual importance but is a festival held with fantastic zeal, and appreciated by tens of thousands. National and overseas visitors throng this odd sports contest in Punjab's Raipur district.Included include: races of bullock carts, horse carts, and mule carts, shot put, tug-of-war, conventional Indian game Kabaddi, tractor race, long and high jumps, mid-distance racing.Daredevil stunts are performed on bicycles and horses, and strongmen try to pull tractors and at times trucks, with their own hair, teeth, and -- you might not think this -- their ears! Evenings are reserved for dancing and songs -- both hearty and unkind, and totally enjoyable.Thaipoosam:
