While AWBI and Peta believe that Jallikutta should be banned on account of alleged cruelty to bulls, others say it is a tradition that should survive for a variety of reasons
Pongal, an important Tamil harvest festival, was celebrated last weekend. It is a three-day festival that begins with the sun’s annual six-month progression to the north (uttaraayanam) and ends with Matu Pongal or cow pongal. On this day, cattle are recognized, decorated and worshipped. For centuries, this day has also involved the widespread rural game of Jallikattu.
