    wow KAMBLA is wonderful event but.. But.. funniest things can be seen Pic 16-19, these police are don’t know where to do the duties, they try to move away the buffalo handlers but buffalo handlers try to explain the police why they standing over there(pic 16-17), still police never listen to them. At last see the situation of these police…(pic18-19) either they are not able to run or handle the buffaloes….

    Indeed wonderful event at Thiruvailguthu Kambala. Its a new double track and many buffaloes have taken part in racing. The race is very humouras to watch as it thrills the crowd who have come from far off places to watch the race. Even foreigners have attended to see the thrilling race. Really great.
