The #Kannada #ಕನ್ನಡ film @KantaraFilm has been a huge success, in #Karnataka, other states of #India, and the world.

#Kantara's plot revolves around the traditional & exciting #Kannada & #Tulu sport of #Kambala #ಕಂಬಳ or water buffalo 🐃 racing!
@KantaraFilm #Kambala #ಕಂಬಳ is NOT the only sport of its kind in the 🌎.

Very similar sports exist in #Sumatra & #Madura of #Indonesia, & #WestBengal state of #India.

The only difference is, instead of water buffaloes 🐃, they use bulls (or rarely cows)!

In Sumatra, it's called #PacuJawi

Nel corso della tarda serata di ieri un forte #terremoto di magnitudo 6.7 è avvenuto al largo delle coste occidentali dell'Isola di #Sumatra, in Indonesia. La scossa in questione non ha provocato danni significativi o vittime e non ha nemmeno generato uno tsunami. 🧵👇 Image
Il terremoto di ieri sera ha avuto un meccanismo focale di tipo compressivo, ovvero un tipo di terremoto in cui i due lembi della faglia, avvicinandosi tra loro, fanno salire il blocco di roccia verso l'alto. Image
Ciò è coerente con il contesto geologico dell'area, proprio al largo dell'isola di Sumatra è infatti in corso un processo di subduzione in cui la placca Indo-Australiana scivola al di sotto della placca della Sonda ad una velocità di circa 50-60 mm l'anno. Image
