Born in 1872, Beato’s interest in Pahlwani began as a growing child in Gujranwala, which became famous for producing champion wrestlers. At the age of eight, he moved to Lahore, a metropolis with Agros and growing Pahlwans. He was given permission to wrestle in public because he diligently studied under his Ustad Misar Kandesha.

He rose quickly by defeating respected wrestlers Jalo Mushki, Bartaba, Sannan Kasai, Sialkot’s Kareem Bakhsh, and Khalifa Kora (the “horse”.

In preparation for his match against Kamu Paliwala in Lahore, Pido is said to have performed an incredible 125,000 don-pits in a week. His training was so intense that he had to rub his powerful thighs together to prevent bleeding.

On the day of the competition, the confident Gamu came in a huge procession riding an elephant. He mocked Pito, boasting that he would throw a rice-pudding Brahmin in two minutes. But in Akara, Pito defeated Kamu in three minutes and served his own food. Pido refused to leave his opponent’s chest, demanding that Camus make a public apology for his pre-match explosion. When the referees failed to pull him over, police were called to separate the men. Gamu called for a reconsideration, but six months later he was firmly convinced within eight minutes.

Pito’s success as a rival Pahlwan earned him the title of ‘Sitara-i-Hind’ (Indian star), his high moral character earned him lasting fame and the title of ‘Devta’ (heavenly life).

By the end of the 19th century, Pito Pahlwan Pito was one of the few elite Hindu or Sikh Pahlwans to demonstrate their ability to challenge the Muslim wrestlers who came to dominate the sport on a professional level.
