VSK Chennai Sandesh

When the apex court chose to belittle Hindus

A Bench of Justices K.S. Radhakrishnan and Pinaki Chandra Misra of Supreme Court said, “Forcing a bull and keeping it in the waiting area for hours and subjecting it to the scorching sun is not for the animal’s well-being” and banned jallikattu (bull fight), a several thousand years old heroic game. Jallikattu has a religious sanction because it is associated with ‘Maatu Pongal’ the day following Sankaranti. Those who argue that the Supreme Court verdict should be reviewed point out that the game can be regulated but not banned. Banning of Jallikattu will tell upon spirit of adventure among youth. Cruelty to animals is thousands of times more in the case of animals taken to mechanized butcheries. Instead of banning that SC has thought it fit to hurt the sentiments of Hindus by banning Jallikattu. 

Tamilnadu a porous state for terrorism

One Alam a Bangladeshi national was picked up by police while he attempted to swim to his country. The man is reported to have made contradictory statements and is being grilled. In another episode one Mahibellah speaking Assamese was picked up by police at Arakonam, a naval base. Though he is dismissed by police as a cheat, internal security questions are raised. The two arrests have taken place just a fortnight after twin blasts in Chennai Central railway station. Police say that Alam might be on a reconnaissance mission for some terrorists outfit. 

Meenakshi is the ruler of Madurai

Madurai is administered by Madurai Municipal Corporation. But Hindus consider Madurai as the Kingdom ruled for six months in a year by Meenakshi (Parvathi) and the other six months by Sundareswara (Lord Shiva). Chithirai,(April-May) the first month of the Hindu calendar is the time when Meenakshi is coronated as queen of Madurai; her marriage with Sundareswara is celebrated soon after the entire event is known as Chithirai festival. It is a local holiday and families invite their near and dear to their homes in Madurai to participate in the festival (printed postcards bearing the dates of the festival is sold in every provision store in the city months before the festival). This way society takes a pride of place in the temple festival. During the festival River Vaigai flowing by Madurai is kept dry so that the huge crowd of devotees could be accommodated.
