Catching a sport by its horns

Jallikattu today has transcended its regional and caste definition and became emblematic of Tamil culture. It stands as a symbol of Tamil pride. As things move on, it has to be ensured that  thesport is regulated and animals are protected from harm. It also shall be made inclusive with the participation of the high and the low, the dominant and the oppressed.

 

( please look for the same on explanation series videos)

 

Living in ahotter world

2016 is reported as a hottest year and climate change is cited as a reason. Depletion of ice sheets is increasing across the arctic and antarctic and it can be catastrophic for coastal areas. Developing countries like India will be particularly vulnerable.

President Trump of USA shall shun his arguments on climate change and shall take a serious note of the change happening around. Indias own commitment to Paris climate accord need to be strengthened with unambiguous actions.
