The New York Stock Exchange, near the bull….

In New York, on Friday afternoon at around 1 pm, an attention-grabbing event was held by various Tamil organisations focusing Jallikattu. More than 50 Tamilians gathered near the stock exchange, at the statue of bull.

Jallikattu is not something that happens somewhere in a village. It is the traditional rights of the Tamil people as a whole. The event organiser Sasikumar said, this program was conducted to emphasise and portray the overall support of Tamilians living in village, town, outside state and country.

Despite the severe cold, many Americans who went through the way stopped probing the massive accumulated Tamilians. Many of them expressed their support and congratulated on the same.

Many supporters from US have begun to express themselves in the public by sending petition to the prime minister, conducting seminars and awareness programs, attention grabbing events. Looks like it is growing as a movement in USA.
