Translating to "horse and mallet," the traditional Meitei game was played with a harness and a cane polo mallet on a saddle made of wood, cane, cloth and iron, like in this kit that has been passed through five generations of the celebrated holistic pony healer Ibohal Maibam's family."

iantom This week @nytimessports is posting selections of my work on the origins of the game of polo. You can also go to @nytimes where some of my images were posted over this past weekend. "It's easy to think of #polo and envision a scene of wealth, royalty and privilege. @iantom traveled to Imphal, #Manipur, tracing the roots of the game to a place a world away from his preconceptions. He found himself in an economically-depressed #Indian state where passion, not privilege, prevailed. Where young boys like Artik Longjam are a critical but fleeting key to the under-funded sport’s future. @everydayasia #manipur #india #imphal #polo #pony #everydayeverywhere 2d

iantom "A lone #polo player at a tournament in the Indian state of #Manipur. @iantom traveled to Imphal, the capital city of Manipur, to document the origins of a sport often associated with wealth. “It was really interesting to see this place that is so unlike what I had imagined it to be,” he said.

naga_nomad A plane flies into the Nagaland #sky. I was sitting with a friend the other day who had a narrow escape. She missed her flight to #Nagaland via #Imphal in 1991. She found out later that the #plane crashed. No survivors. She made friends few days before who were also on the plane. That was a turning point for her. || #dimapur #clouds 3d
  •   ati_charlesworth I remember that crash. We lost so many near and dear ones. My uncle was one of the people in the search and rescue party that trekked up the hill and hunt for survivors. And he talks of the horrors... Your friend isso lucky and blessed to have missed that flight. Just another way He shows us how something that seems wrong (like missing a flight) happens for a good reason. 3d
  •   naga_nomad @ati_charlesworth I am sorry that you lost dear ones on that flight. So true! So many seemingly bad things sometime work for our good. 3d

everydayasia Young #polo players relax after readying ponies for a match in Imphal, the capital of the Indian state of #Manipur. Polo has its origins there, where it was once called Sagol Kangjei. Rising interest in the sport is linked with a resurgence of the region's traditional arts, culture and script. Photo by @iantom.

nytimes Avinass Laishram, 8, leads a pony to the stable. His father and 15-year-old brother are both #polo players for the #Imphal Riding Club. Avinass is “an amazing rider already and just too young to play,” said @iantom, who photographed the boy, his family and their sport. “He flies faster than anyone else.” Follow @nytimessports this week to see more photos from this series. #nytweekender 3d
