Better late than never :) For over 5 years now, I have been wanting to watch the jallikattu. This year I finally made it. If you want to read more about the jallikattu go here.

However, the  jallikattu has changed a *lot* over the years. From a sport (with no rules) that used to be played by all those who even came to watch to a sport (strictly governed by rules) with a clear barrigade between the players and spectators and also very closely monitored by the supreme court and the local collectorate.

Here are some pictures from the 2009 jallikattu at palamedu and alanganallur. As and when I get some time to process the pictures I will post them here. So keep coming back (atleast once in a couple of days) and hope you enjoy the show :)

To view the pictures in good quality, go to the flickr page

Would love to hear your comments and critics...
