Many believed that Indians could not be liberated from British rule if they could not defeat the white carnivores physically. There was a wrestler who broke this myth and gave confidence to the Indians and inspired the national movement. Ghulam Muhammad Baksh Butt, the famous gamma file van.

Gamma was a court wrestler of the Maharaja of Patiala in Punjab. Born in 1878 near Amritsar to a family of wrestlers with roots in Kashmir, Gamma became a winner in various competitions within India. India’s proudest gamma was sent to the John Bull World Championships in London in 1910 by the wealthy Bengali nationalist Sarath Kumar Mitra.

But at first Gama was not allowed to take part in the match in London. Due to the short stature. With a height of less than six feet and a weight of 90 kg, all the international players lined up against Gama were giants. Gamma was not disappointed. Gamma made headlines by hosting some informal competitions in London and beating up a number of foreign wrestlers. Gamma was officially inducted into the World Championships when he knocked out American champion Benjamin Roller in just three minutes.

Gamma’s opponent was world champion Stanislav Sbisko of Poland. The Polish star is far ahead of Gamma in height and weight. But on the first day, Gamma struggled to surrender in a three-hour heated round. The first day ended in a draw. It was a great honor for the world champion who could not defeat an unknown Indian. He left the venue the next day before the match. Gamma was then declared the world champion. India has been the focus of world wrestling history ever since. The world champion Gamma was a great inspiration to the Indian national consciousness.

On his return, Gamma defeated then-undefeated Indian champion Rahim Baksh Sultani, a 6-by-9-inch giant. It was the fourth match after three games had ended in a draw. Gamma Veer, who weighed only 5 feet 9 inches tall and weighed 88 kg, fought against the giant Sultani Wala, who was six feet nine inches tall and weighed 130 kilograms. In a four-hour long match, Gamma Sultani threw her tail and broke her ribs.

In 1920, the King of Patiala invited Sbisko, a Polish player who withdrew from the competition against Gamma at the World Championships in London ten years ago. Gamma beat the Polish star, who was 50 at the time, in just 42 seconds. Gamma also defeated world champion Jesse Peterson of Sweden the following year.

Gamma Filewan becomes a Pakistani citizen following partition. But Gama was at the forefront of protecting the minority Hindus during the communal clashes that erupted in his residence at the time. Gamma Filevan died in 1960 at the age of 82. There is also the file van that beat the whites in the wrestling arena and played a dazzling role in the shaken Indian national consciousness.
