Every game has its origin somewhere. It is well known that Cricket was basically started by the English. Likewise KABADDI has its origin in the Indian subcontinent. Initially, it was considered a rural game but now it is gaining popularity in urban circles also. It is a team game but does not need any equipment. With the inception it has gained fame worldwide and the word KABADDI has become a buzz word. Its popularity tends us to write about it. So, let’s know about KABADDI, how it is played.
In this game, two teams play at a time. This game is either played on mat or in sand or mud. On the ground, there is a center line. Actually, there are two kinds of KABADDI; STANDARD STYLE AND CIRCLE STYLE. Later, we shall discuss about these kinds. One player from each teams get chance to ‘raid’ in opponent’s team by uttering the word ‘KABADDI-KABADDI’. Different skills like ‘DODGING’ in offensive way are used by the ‘RAIDER’ to touch his opponent to collect point. The opponent players are called ‘CATCHERS’. So, when the raider tries to touch any of the catchers, they use their playing skills in defensive way. Actually, after touching one of the catchers, the raider has to be cross the center line without being caught. In the return, the catchers or a catcher (CATCHERS’ NUMBER VARIES IN CIRCLE STYLE AND STANDARD STYLE KABADDI) also tries to hold the raider so that he cannot return to his natives. Now, the catchers send a raider to the opponent’s team to gather point and the same activity does as was done by the opponent’s team by uttering KABADDI-KABADDI. As the game prolongs the tension for gathering points increases. A lot of enthusiasm and vibrancy is seen not only in players but also in the audiences. Shouting, cheering and motivating for the favorite team is quite famous during KABADDI matches. Hitting, pushing, using abusive language, catching the player’s clothes are not allowed. Violent attacking, hitting the raider, side pushing are considered foul. Special rewards by the
organizers are announced for spectacular catches and raids. Especially, northern states of INDIA like; Punjab, Haryana, Uttar Pradesh, Himachal Pradesh and Rajasthan are the hub of this thrilling game.
