A small correction.

Men dont always fall from the bull , usually they fall.
So should I remove the word "suelen" from the sentence??

Los hombres suelen (o pueden) caerse del feroz animal y herirse.

Usually, I take my lunch late.
Normalmente, yo como tarde = suelo comer tarde (casi todos los días como tarde, algún día como más pronto).

"Soler" es "casi siempre", almost always. "A veces" es sometimes:

Yo suelo comer tarde, a veces como más pronto.

I hope it'll be helpful

Puede tambien incluir "a menudo" y "nunca" en el mismo contexto. Vale?

You need to know that nunca and jamás mean never.
A menudo means repeatedly, or often.
So when you use them, the context changes greatly.

I'm surprized that there's bullfighting in India. Cows are sacred but bulls apparently aren't. BTW: I know that India is multi-cultural, and not all the cultures in India see cows as sacred.
I have read that the bullfight in Spain is a remnant of the type of human/animal fight practiced in the grand arenas of ancient Rome.

I now wonder if this type of sport may have had origins in India, or whether it started in Rome and traveled east to India as well as west to Spain.
PS In re-reading your article, I see that the animal is usually not harmed. It's the young men who are endangered. It reminds me of the running of the bulls in Pamplona.

I've seen your article, but I don't understand why you start with "brincar" . Brincar means to jump.

I wander, like Poli, about the sacred caws in India. Maybe the sacred ones are the caws, aren't they.

Poli, in Pamplona, "los mozos" run before the bulls, but later they go to the "plaza de toros" to be fighted (toreado) and killed after great sufferings.

No sabía nada del toreado. ¡Que lástima! Prefiero el tomatín (o tomatina--
olivido la palabra)

Yes, the Tomatina sounds much more fun. In fact there are various festivities in Spain where people throw things at each other:
Buñol (Valencia) - Tomatina - People throw tomatoes
Haro (La Rioja) - Batalla del vino - Obviously wine is thrown around.
Villagarcía de Arousa (Pontevedra) - Fiesta del Agua - Even the local fire brigade gets involved with their hoses.
Vallecas (Madrid) - Batalla del Agua
I've only been to one (Fiesta del Agua in Vilagarcía) and it was great fun.

Yes, I would like that too, but warning casual clothing required. BTW how would you say that in Spanish?
¿Aviso ropa informal imperativo? o se requiere/ exige ropa informal?

Se aconseja ropa informal/de sport.

Si vas a la fiesta del vino, mejor que sea de color morado.
Si vas a la Tomatina, mejor que sea de color rojo.
Si vas a la fiesta del agua, lo mejor es un bañador.
