  1. Wow deadly pic.. I’m always a sucker fr jallikettu pics.. in spite of the animal cruelty angle nevertheless, I think its a beautiful and raw dynamic between man versus animal..

    Great shot Josh!

  2. I keep wondering what happened just after this photo was taken. The bull is certainly outnumbered, but it’s clear that he isn’t backing down. A great story shot and very well done!

  3. intense. These are pictures that makes us feel “hey so what?! I can take better pictures than these, just that he has a better camera” hahaha! given the camera seldom do we succeed. superb shot Joshi…
