Photographer's Note

I hope that his future wife will not react like the bull: as much the men want ... as much the bull don't !

Matthu Pongal, celebration of the cow in Paalamedu, based on the old Tamil tradition where a man tries to prove his courage to his future wife, a Harvest Festival part of the typical identity of Tamil Nadu.

This year 84 persons were slightly injured, only one was really unlucky by getting the hoof of the bull in his face right in front of me. One bull didn't survive because of an accident on the road. The safety was put up to the maximum, they even stopped the game to remove all not selected participants.

I skip Alanganalur today, much toooo crowdy !!!
