Stop this no-sense..
A perfect Taurean in saving my animal when it comes to Jalli-Kattu. Hundreds gather to watch this event when men and bull go violent on each other. Pandemonium breaks out of the scene as bull runs with all vigor and confidence to knock-down the so called VEERARGAL of the state.
“So many avenues are there for exhibiting machismo, why bullying an animal which is otherwise harmless???”
Happy I felt when the Supreme Court banned this event. On revoking this ban day before yesterday, my heart beat rose faster with a fear of “How many are going to die and get injured tomorrow?” The ban was lifted under the pretext that this event is conducted from time immemorial.
But don’t we mature with age? Do we actually follow the same customs our fore fathers followed a dozen years back?
I seriously do not understand the pleasure they are going to derive by tormenting bulls.
(Anyway, let the dogs bark!!!.... It’s difficult to stop them from barking. Let them continue their work and so I will.)
Thanks for having spared time to read my ramblings.
Plz…continue with ur work..
