Supreme Court had banned conducting jallikattu in 2014 and further struck down the Act passed by the State government. The protestors upheld banners and posters and raised slogans against PETA, demanding government to act on their demands.

The importance of resuming the sport, after it was banned by a 2014 Supreme Court order there is no similarity between the Spanish sport of bull fighting and jallikattu. In Spanish sport of bull fighting the bulls were harmed and killed in the sport festival in Spain but the bulls are treated like gods in Tamil Nadu.

jallikattu is about taming the bull and not causing any physical harm by breaking its horns or other part.

Air Marshal Arjan Singh, the only officer of the Indian Air Force to be promoted to five-star rank, paying tribute to Dr APJ Abdul Kalam – “The Missile Man of India”. I believe there can’t be a picture better than this which describes the true model of secularism this country deserves.

The Indian nation of more than 80% Hindus bows down in respect looking at an Indian Sikh offering his salute to an Indian Muslim. Dirty politics divided India in the name of religion and cast but this great son of Indian soil tied us together.

we salute you sir.

Rest In peace Dr APJ Abdul Kalam

 

How Tsunami warning withdrawn after Massive earthquake struck Indonesia

All countries including India has finally withdrawn the tsunami warning that was reported earlier. It was reported around 28 countries issued tsunami warning earlier.  National Disaster Management Authority Vice President Sashidhar Reddy told that there is no specific threat. There is no likelihood of any tsunami in the Indian Ocean region.

Why there is no Tsunami in 2012 but in 2004?

Tsunami 2004
Tsunami 2004

Reason: In case of 2004, tsunami is caused due to vertical displacement plates or large body movement. In 2012, There is no tsunami after Major Earthquake struck Indonesia because of horizontal displacement plates or large body movement.

Tsunami occurs due to Vertical Displacement Plates

How Tsunami is caused due to Earthquakes?

TsunamiOcean
Tsunami Ocean Effect

Tsunami are caused by the abrupt vertical displacement of a large volume of a body of water, usually from natural sources of kinetic energy. These forces produce a wave that shifts not just a few meters of surface water, but the entire column of water from the floor to the surface.

Tsunami contain enormous amounts of energy. Earthquakes that cause tsunami often occur offshore at tectonic plate subduction zones.

As the sea floor snaps up in response to the tectonic plate movement and subsequent earthquake, the tsunami wave is formed and moves out from the source of the displacement.

The wave increases in height as it enters more shallow waters close to land.
