I was happy to hear the news that there was a ban on Jallikattu. Though it is associated with tradition and culture and stuff, i dont think its a good sport to play. Hitting the animal and infuriating it, and then fighting with it doesnt make much sense, but our folks thought different and the ban was removed this year with some conditions. Similar bans should be imposed on the bali kudukkara concept as well. How ever such things take lots of time to change.
