Jallikattu, also known as sallikkattu is a traditional sport of Tamil Nadu that is celebrated on the third day of Pongal – Mattu Pongal Day. (Usually it falls on January 16.) The history of this bullfight dates back to 400-100 BCE when it was played by the Ayars, an ethnic group in India. The name is coined from two words, Jalli (silver and gold coins) and Kattu (tied). A bull is let loose among a crowd of people and whoever tames it will get the coins tied to its horn. The people who participate in the sport try to hold on to the animal’s hump to stop it.
In the world of transportation technology, it pays to understand what your fleet needs and how your company could benefit the most from emerging technologies. GPS fleet tracking is a tried-and-tested technology that goes far beyond dots on a map.
In this paper an efficient bull tracking system is designed and implemented for tracking the movement of bull from any location at any time is discussed. The proposed framework made great utilization of prominent innovation that consolidates a mobile application with a microcontroller. The system works on Global Positioning System (GPS) technology for tracking.
vehicle tracking systems allow you to track vehicles in real-time as one of the most basic functions. Other functions include driver behaviour analysis, vehicle maintenance reminders and journey history, along with facilitating fuel management and dispatching. A vehicle tracking system monitors not just the vehicle but the driver as well. The system provides a live map which is updated almost instantly. With modern tracking software, you can also receive alerts for each time your employee or driver commits any non-compliant behaviour like sudden braking, speeding, swerving, etc. With such accurate data, you can easily keep a check on every driver and how strictly they are following the company procedures and road laws.

Jallikattu is essential to every rural farmer of the state as it is an opportunity to flaunt the strength of the bulls and the love they have for their cattle. Tamilians do not consider it to be a leisure sport. It is a tradition that never fails to establish a self-sufficient, hard-working, and solid Tamil culture. It also symbolises the amazing "man and animal" relationship as farmers consider these bulls to be a member of their family.
The rural areas of Tamil Nadu are no longer synonymous with the old agrarian life because of the migration of the youth from villages to metro cities. This festival creates a nostalgia for ancient times in rural areas since the state is going through rapid urbanisation. The participants are also driven by this nostalgia, a longing to return and relive the old days.
