Maattu Pongal "Kombu" kolam (Bull horns)
Created by Lata on 2009-01-13,

Maattu Pongal is a harvest festival honoring bulls and cows. The farmer cultivating his land depends on bulls, timely rain and the Sun. On this day, the cows and bulls are bathed, adorned with flower garlands and their horns are painted colorfully. Tinkling bells are tied around their neck and they are fed special dishes prepared that day. Bull fights called 'Jallikattu' are also arranged at some places, where young men have to take off the money pouches tied to the horns of ferocious bulls single handed. Another game called "Manji Virattu" is also arranged this day which is basically a cattle race where young men chase ferociously running bulls!
