The oldest polo ground in the world is the Imphal Polo Ground in Manipur State.
The history of this polo ground is contained in the royal chronicle “Cheitharol Kumbaba” starting from AD 33.
Lieutenant Joseph Ford Sherer, the father of modern polo visited the state and played on this polo ground in the 1850s. Lord Curzon, the Viceroy of India visited the state in 1901 and measured the polo ground as 225 yards long and 110 yards wide. (at Imphal Polo Ground)

Taken at Bandipur Forest Reserve in May 2011. The Indian Bison [Gaur].
Gaur or the Indian Bison are said to look like water buffalo at the front and domestic cattle at the back. They are the heaviest and most powerful of all wild cattle, and are among the largest living land animals; only elephants, rhinos and hippos consistently grow larger, and the weight of gaur may equal or even surpass that of a giraffe.
Males have highly muscular bodies, with distinctive dorsal ridges and large dewlaps, forming a very powerful appearance. Females are substantially smaller, and their dorsal ridges and dewlaps are less developed. Their dark brown coats are short and dense. [source: wikipedia]
