Kushti wrestlers wash away red clay accumulated from a long day of training at an Akhara outside of Kolhapur, India. #Kushti is a way of life for the wrestlers - a spiritual sport in the shadow of Hanuman, the Hindu monkey god worshipped for strength - who form a brotherhood around their practice, often living together for months or years, full immersion, no half-measures.
