Spring season is fast approaching; people across the globe are into fast transition to enjoy it. No matter how cold the winter is, they still look forward for the next season. But then, not all nations possess special events for this season. In Central Asia, they organized an event named “Buskashi”. This is the popular sport that I had witnessed in the land of Tajikistan. It describes as goat snatching, in comparison to polo sports, the players ride on horses and snatch the goat instead of ball into their goal. You can have the thrill watching them; it is like watching the actual footage in the movies. I am one of the lucky individual to see this.

I didn't know about this sport, but I am not going to watch the video, as I don't think I will enjoy this kind of sport with real animal as a ball. Thank you for sharing this, it's always good to learn something new, and yes, I guess you are lucky to have watched this in real life.
