Kho-Kho ranks as one of the most popular traditional sports in India. The origin of Kho-Kho is difficult to trace, but many historians believe, that it is a modified form of Run Chase , which in its simplest form involves chasing and touching a person. With its origins in Maharashtra, Kho-Kho in ancient times, was played on raths or chariots, and was known as Rathera. Like all Indian games, it is simple, inexpensive and enjoyable. It does, however, demand physical fitness, strength, speed and stamina, and a certain amount of ability. Dodging, feinting and bursts of controlled speed make this game quite thrilling. To catch by pursuit - to chase, rather than just run - is the capstone of Kho-Kho.The game develops qualities such as obedience, discipline, sportsmanship, and loyalty between team members. The rules of the game were framed in the beginning of the 20th century. At Gymkhana Poona, a Committee was formed in 1914, to frame its rules. The first ever rules on Kho-Kho were published from Gymkhana Baroda, in 1924. In 1959-60, the first national Kho-Kho championship was organised in Vijayawada Andhra Pradesh . The Government has initiated the following awards for the game: Arjuna Award, Eklavya Award for men, Rani Laxmi Bai award for women, Veer Abhimanyu award for boys under 18, and Janaki award for girls under 16.

Rajendra Kewat was once captain of the Bihar kho kho team, but today works as a daily wage labourer. Kewat, who is in his 40s and is a graduate, has been unemployed for over a decade despite having brought glory to his state.So, this reflects what could be the condition of the game now. Last month, the kho-kho trials organised by Karnataka Olympic Association KOA for the state team saw only 17 boys turn up for selection. KOA was directed by Kho-Kho Federation of India to hold the trials and pick a team from the state for the upcoming 43rd Senior National Kho-Kho Championship 2008-09 which is to be held in Ballia, Uttar Pradesh, from March 22nd to 26th. It shows that people are losing interest in this game.

It seems that nothing happened even after the news was published in two of the reputed newspapers about Rajendra Khewat who captained the Bihar Kho-Kho Team to bring fame to the State and was declared the Best Player at the National Kho-Kho games in 1987 fighting against abject poverty. Rajendra belongs to a backward caste and was selected to Bihar`s Junior Kho-Kho team in 1981 and represented the state for eight years. He captained the Bihar team during 1985-87. Is there nothing that can be done?
