A traditional yet controversial practice, Jallikattu is an experience that one does not forget ever. The adrenaline of both man and bull reach a frenzy as participants attempt to grab the large hump on the bull’s back with both arms and hang on to it while the bull attempts to escape and run back to its owner. The owner of the bull has as much stake in this event as the men who try to stop the bull. The question on everyone’s mind is, will the participant be able to stop the raging bull or will the owner be able to draw it towards the finish line first. A platform for the display of bravery and skill, Jallikattu is a tradition that many practice in Tamil Nadu as part of the annual harvest festival called Pongal.
Will you be willing to take on the raging bull to prove your bravery?

They just finished Sunday morning session of football coaching and wanted a way to release all their pent up energy. A fantastic way of doing that was to challenge each other in simple physical games like this high jump over a friend. Don’t you wish you could be a child again?

As Sunday dawns, the fishermen bring their haul of fish back from the deep sea in the hope that the waiting customers will like the fresh catch and pay them a handsome price for it. Coming home with a haul of fish is a welcome sight on Sundays for both buyers and sellers as its meant for family, food and rest.

They had many the luxuries a man longs for, a TV to be entertained, a cooler to keep the Chennai heat away, an washing machine, a sofa and a bed to lounge around in... what they did not have though was a basic need, a roof over their head. They adjusted to the stench of the open road and made it their homeless home. They were making the most of their “wants” while they struggle to have their “needs” met.

As the sky was beginning to light up, the horse and his rider came to the beach to exercise and stretch. What an amazing partnership they had! The horse used his rider as the anchor while he ran in circles and the rider used the horse as a balance. Who do you share such a perfect relationship with?
