    If the Indian courts and the government do not find anything offensive in a Jain monk walking around stark naked in front of women, then they should find anything offensive with Jallikattu. If the naked Jain monk is a symbol of renunciation and ultimate bravery, then Jallikattu is a far more superior act of bravery, for it remembers the heroes of old who tamed wild animals, domesticated them and provided food on the table for their families often dancing around death. Everyone remembers Kalpana Chawla, She died like those ancient bull tamers, while taming the wild forces of nature for the betterment of human society. We did not stop sending people atop controlled infernos called rockets just because brave Kalpana Chawla died, but we are tweaking these rockets to make them safer. So hail to bull tamers the cotter pins of human civilization.
