Test of strength

These Indian men were testing their arm strength, stamina and skill in the sport of arm wrestling while the referee was looking at them. This photo was taken at Al Jahli Park in the Central District on the second day of Ramadan, about 2 hours after the Iftar. I wondered how can one fasting all day long be strong?....must be the effect of adrenaline :))

Word of the day: dhiraaah or idak is the Arabic word for arm. Salaam!

  8. @Vernz,
    Thank you.
    yes, kakatuwa nga na makita sa ibang lahi na nagbubunong braso.

    @Nebz,
    Thank you.
    tingin ko nga ang hirap sa likod ng style nila.

    May comment ako sa latest blog post mo para sa answer ko.
