The fact of the matter is, researchers claim that Jallikattu is akin to slaughter. Hah! Jallikattu is slaughter? The search dogs in the police force, the horses in the Army…Elephants bound by chains in temples…Imported dogs being kept on a leash and taken for walks on the beach…
All these are not forms of animal torture… and Jallikattu is?
"The powerless are ever at the mercy of the powerful,
And the Kings assume they can clutch the reigns of power forever.
Rest not my dear Tamizha. It is time to wake up,
Unsheathe your weapon and unleash your force on evil.
You are like a tiger that restores balance in the eco system,
Unsheathe your weapon and unleash your force on evil."
