Extractions: ARCHIVES Supporters of kabaddi an ancient rural Indian sport are trying to spread the game through Asia and hope it will eventually become an Olympic event. Jandardhan Singh Gehlot, president of the Amateur Kabaddi Federation of India (AKFI), told Reuters: "Until it spreads in Asia, it cannot go beyond. Our heart is there (Olympics)." Gehlot, speaking by telephone from the northwestern city of Jaipur, added: "China and Japan have started playing and we hope for Korea, too." Kabaddi is already a medal event in the Asian Games, where India have won three consecutive golds since the sport debuted at Beijing in 1990. In addition to South Asian nations, Thailand and Japan played kabaddi at the last games in Bangkok in 1998. It will be a demonstration sport at the Afro-Asian Games at New Delhi in 2001. Kabaddi, a variation of tag, involves two teams of seven in which players take turns to "raid" the opposing team's half of a rectangular pitch. The "raider" tries to touch as many members of the opposing team as possible while chanting "kabaddi" without taking a breath. Opponents try to block his exit from their half without being touched.

Briefs 5 Stars - Excellent 4 Stars - Good 3 Stars - Average 2 Stars - Fair 1 Stars - Poor (7 Votes) By: LIFS Who would have expected kabaddi, the 4,000-year-old indigenous sport of India, to be taken up by Canadians - huge, powerfully built, mostly white cops no less? Kabaddi Cops, a short film by Greg Cote documents the amazing spectacle of white Canadian police officers - shorn of their uniforms and guns - clad only in shorts forming rings on the playing field, hands raised, moving as blithely as ballet dancers and yet as sleekly as tigers in the fierce kabaddi dance of raiders and defenders. It is the only non-Asian kabaddi team anywhere in the world. Their opposing team? Young men from the local Punjabi community in Ontario. Yes, South Asian youth, sometimes misunderstood and troubled, are generally on the receiving end of negative police attention. Here the two teams are equals, each learning to see the other as real individuals and not just as troubled people or a feared authority. Cote, who produced and directed the film, is himself a former police officer and was inspired by the efforts of Inspector Barry Dolan who in 2002 came up with the Police Kabaddi team to ease tensions and bring about harmony and trust between the police and the South Asians, after a protest against racial profiling at the Peel police station.

Extractions: "Ghilli" ... on a winning track IT'S ACTION unstoppable and a sure hat trick for Dharani. "Dhil" took off at break-neck speed and went on in the same vein till the final frame, "Dhool" followed a similar fast track course and now again "Ghilli" begins, moves and ends on an incredible top gear. For the finicky and the fastidious the happenings are bound to be unrealistic and even impossible but for the man on the street, who enters the cinema hall looking for sheer high velocity action, screenplay writer and director Dharani's "Ghilli" provides a sumptuous three-course fare. Dharani does not depend on duets (there's just one), item numbers or a weather-beaten comedy line (Dhamu's idiosyncrasies in the name of humour cannot come under this category at all) to pep up his screenplay. But if he thought making Hindu Gods appear with mobile phones and the like makes a song sequence humorous (!) sorry Dharani, it's not in good taste. With his finger right on the pulse of the viewer, and Vijay, the hero whom the masses today identify with, and Prakashraj, the inimitable villain in tow, this remake of the Telugu flick, "Okkadu," comes a clear winner.
