Jagmohan Garg highlights ancient sport, new age protests

Jagmohan Garg says practically everyone seemed to miss the siren tune of ‘unsynchronised renewals’ of an ‘under class’ in the jallikattu dissents. It is these sections that are driving the worldwide rebel against the purported “tip top”


The last months of 2016 saw high show in Tamil Nadu, with millions over the State overcome by misery taking after the drawn out hospitalization and ensuing downfall of Chief Minister J. Jayalalithaa. The initial couple of weeks of 2017 have since seen challenges over the issue of jallikattu writhe the State.

As per Jagmohan Garg to “outcasts”, viz. those not having a place with Tamil Nadu, it might seem phenomenal that so much free for all ought to be in plain view over an issue that, somewhere else, would be just likened with the game of bullfighting. Be that as it may, those liable of oversimplified suppositions of this kind would be not able see the wood for the trees.

Saturated with aged custom, going back to the mythical Sangam period, jallikattu holds an extraordinary place in the hearts and psyches of normal Tamil society. The choice of the Supreme Court, in May 2014, to maintain the Central government’s notice of 2011 (adding bulls to the rundown of creatures whose preparation and show is disallowed), in actuality formalized the restriction on bullfighting as a game. Notwithstanding, it appeared to trigger worries among areas in Tamil Nadu that it added up to a strike on Tamil culture and Tamil pride. Such sentiments had potentially lain torpid yet appeared to become animated after the boycott.
