Divyashri Mudakavi describes how an initiative in Gadag district has taken the rural sport to the next level, making it popular across the State. In Lakshmeshwar, a town in Gadag district, there is at least one mallakamba athlete in every house. Children here have inherited sporting talent from the older generation which had an inclination towards fitness and sports, especially rural sports.
