Kodava Makkala Janapada Samskruthika Habba enthrals all

Former minister M C Nanaiah inaugurates the Kodava children's folk and cultural festival in Napoklu on Thursday, by dancing to the tune of Kodava traditional music.

Kodava people should remain united to protect their culture, said former minister M C Nanaiah.

He was speaking after inaugurating ‘Kodava Makkala Janapada Samskruthika Habba’ organised by Karnataka Kodava Sahitya Academy, in association with Kodava Makkada Koota, at the premises of Ankur Public School in Napoklu on Thursday.

Kodava people should not sell their properties to outsiders. If Kodagu is occupied by non-Kodavas, it would be difficult to save Kodava tradition. Kodava language and culture is unique and every Kodava has a role to play in preserving the same, Nanaiah added.

Kodava Sahitya Academy chairman Pemmanda K Ponnappa presided over the programme. Kodava Samaja president Biddatanda Ramesh Changappa was present.

Achievers Chirotira Thammaiah, Baleyada Uttappa, Kaibulira Subbaiah, Kundyolanda Subbaiah, Chiyakapoovanda Devaiah, Napaneravanda Somaiah and Boppanda Bollamma were felicitated on the occassion.

Students from 15 schools in Napoklu hobli took part in the programme. Children performed folk arts ‘Baloppatt’, ‘Bolakkatt’, ‘Ummattatt’ and ‘Kattiyatt’ during the fest.
