Big, burly Tarlochan is a champion wrestler, eager for some real challenge. So when he hears of Paramjit, reputed to be unbeatable, he sets off across the Sutlej river to take him on. The two begin their bout with gusto and become so absorbed in it that they literally get 'carried away'! The pictures for this robust folk fantasy from Punjab imbibe the spirit of its fun-loving feisty people. Phulkari, 'flower-work' embroidery typical of Punjab, adds richness to the illustrations.
