This week, it’s an all-in-house panel with Abhinandan Sekhri, Manisha Pande, Raman Kirpal, Jayashree Arunachalam and Anand Vardhan.
The conversation begins with the panel providing a brief outline of the practice of Jallikattu. It then moves on to discuss the recent Supreme Court verdict which upheld the Tamil Nadu government’s decision to allow the traditional bull-taming sport. The discussion visits the various aspects surrounding the controversy. Jayashree talks about the cultural importance of the festival over the brutal practices it fosters, while Abhinandan sheds light on the larger issue of animal killing in different communities, and how it is practised.
The panel then delves right into the subscriber emails and has a detailed discussion on feedback, criticism and appreciation received by Newslaundry.
