Nation Reporter: Jallikattu begins at some places, main event at Madurai still in limbo

Traditional bull-fighting festival Jallikattu is set to be inaugurated in Alanganallur village on Sunday. Tamil Nadu Chief Minister O Paneerselvam will inaugurate the event. The festival, earlier banned by the Supreme Court, is taking place after a massive protest by people and state administration against the ban. In a rare show of unity and determination, people and government of Tamil Nadu presented a joint front to demand lift from the ban from the sport which involved bull fighting and taming, in order to preserve culture of the Tamil traditions.
