Start community radio, DC tells Kodavas

'Land identified for starting Shooting Academy'

Deputy Commissioner Anurag Tewari has said that Kodavas should start a community radio to exchange views on Kodava culture, literature and agriculture activities.

Speaking at Kodava Samskrithika Mela organised by Kodava Sahitya Academy and Hudikeri Kodava Samaja on Sunday, he said that community radio has been playing a vital role in  development of a community in other parts of the country.

Emphasis should be laid for conserving Kodava culture and tradition. There is a need to introduce Kodava culture to tourists who visit the district round the year, he added.
The DC said that land has already been identified for starting Shooting Academy in Kodagu district.

“Possessing arms is an integral part of Kodava culture. Hence, the people from Kodagu if given training might achieve success in national and international tournaments,” he said.   
Kodava Vidyanidhi President Koothanda P Uthappa said that one should not neglect to preserve the culture of the land.

There is a need to preserve the sanctity of river Cauvery. Youth from Kodagu should excel in competitive examinations.

Ajjinikanda T Bheemaiah also spoke.

Senior physician Dr Kalimada Shivappa, teacher Kirundanda Ponnamma Nanjappa, Kudiya Samaja President Kudiyara Muthappa and others spoke.
Mahadevada Pommakkada Sangha members presented Ummathat on the occasion.
