‘Bull of the match’ will also be honoured, says organising committee chairman

The organisers of ‘jallikattu’ (bull taming sport) at Alanganallur near here plan to give away two motorcycles — under the categories of ‘man of the match’ to be awarded to the best bull tamer and ‘bull of the match’ to be awarded to the owner of the best bull — during the event scheduled for January 16.

V. Balaji, chairman of the organising committee, said that that these titles were being introduced for the first time this year.

A host of prizes including LCD television sets, washing machines, induction stoves, dressing tables, sofas, gold and silver coins and vessels would be distributed.

He said registration of bulls would begin on Monday and close by Thursday. The organisers were expecting 600 bulls as against 497 registered last year.

The tamers can register themselves on January 10 and 11. Asked if the organising committee would be able to accommodate 600 bulls between 8 a.m. and 2 p.m., the time stipulated by the district administration, Mr. Balaji said: “That is why, we are introducing token system this year. Every bull would be given a number and it will enter the arena as and when the numbers are called out. It would speed up the process.”

He said that the organisers were very particular in conducting the event in a safe as well as enjoyable manner by following the norms.
