  • Description:  Lathikhela (club game) teaches self-defense with sticks. Until recently, the zamindars (landlords) of Bangladesh employed a group of lathials (stalwarts wielding sticks) for security. In the char (shoal) lands, people still take possession of chars through stick fights. During 'Ashura' (Religious festival of Islam, celebrated on the 10th day of the Muslim month of Muharram) lathials demonstrate their prowess and mettle in this game. The sticks used for this game are four and a half to five feet long, and are often smeared with oil. Players maneuver their respective sticks around their body with stunning agility. Only sturdy youth take part in the game. Kushtia, Bangladesh. January 1, 2007.
