Competitions on the traditional rural sports, which are almost extinct, were organised on Sunday among girl students of schools and colleges in Odisha's Ganjam district, functionaries of an organisation said.

The competitions were organised to revive the traditional rural sports, which were once considered the best form of entertainment for girls, they said.

The winners will be awarded in the ‘kumar punei janha lo’ cultural show to be organised by the Madhumaya Panigrahi Foundation (MPF) on the day of Kumar Purnima on October 28.
