    FORMING a human flagpole pose, this gymnast makes it look like child's play. That's because these are some of the world's youngest enthusiasts of India's ancient sport of Mallakhamb. The children - as young as 10-years-old - climb a wooden pole and do mind-boggling stunts, including the human flag pole pose using just their feet as an anchor. Then, switching to the rope, they hang mid-air performing daredevil twists and turns with great balance.
