Jallikattu : An Appraisal

Rahul N.

After following various responses by people for and against Jallikattu in the last one week, one glaring lacuna comes to the fore in these responses and most analysis. The lacuna arises due to the complete reduction of the Jallikattu protests to the individual merits and demerits of the sport. Amidst this cacophony, what is not properly accounted for are the reasons behind the ‘Jallikattu Movement’. Such responses also fail to understand that the protestors are not a homogenous body. This response tries to capture those aspects that were not communicated adequately through the mass media especially for those observers outside Tamil Nadu. >>
