Coorg Land of the Brave

History

Kodagu was a kingdom rulled by the Hoysalas from the 11th to the 14th century A.D. and thereafter by the Vijayanagar kings and the Chengalvas. The Wodeyars of Kodagu ruled from the 17th to the 19th century. The British annexed Kodagu in 1834 after dethroning Chikkaveerarajendra Wodeyar. It was administered by Chief Commissioners till Independence and then in 1952, as a category 'C' state, had a representative in the Rajya Sabha. Upon the reorganisation of states in 1956, Kodagu became a district of Karnataka State. Coorg is the anglicised name for Kodagu.


Geography

Kodagu is one of the smallest districts in Karnataka comprising of 3 taluks - Madikeri, Somwarpet and Virajpet.

Madikeri, a hill station, is the headquarters of Kodagu. The district has a mountainous configuration which presents a grand panorama of verdant valleys, ravines, fast flowing streams, lofty peaks and awe inspiring spurs. The major peaks are Tadiandamol, Brahmagiri and Pushpagiri Hills.

The largest river in Kodagu district is the Cauvery with its principal tributaries Hemavathi, Lakshmanathirtha, Kakkabbe and Harangi or Survanavati, flows in an easterly direction and river Barapole flows towards west.


Land

From the deep reds and dark browns of the shola forests, from the fluorescent green of paddy fields and shimmering blue of summer skies to colourful costumes and bright faces, Kodagu is a splash of colours.

Located on the eastern slopes of the Western Ghats of India is the most densely forested districts. Almost 80% of the land is under tree cover. The region no doubt has been recognised as one of the 38 richest hotspots of bio-diversity. Endemic species (species that cannot be found anywhere else on earth) are in exceptional concentration in the forests of Kodagu. This is mainly because many of the trees of the original wet evergreen and moist deciduous forests have been conserved by the planters when they converted their land into coffee estates.

Much of Kodagu is used for agriculture. Characteristically and historically, paddy fields are found on the valley floors, with agroforestry in the surrounding hills. Ginger crops and meadows can also be found in the valley. The most common plantation crop is coffee, especially Coffea robusta variety. Kodagu is the second coffee production region in India, after the Baba Budangiri hills in Chikkamagaluru district. Coffee revenue helped Kodagu to become one the richest districts in India.


Climate

The climate of Kodagu is cool, equable and pleasant. The district has very moist rainy monsoon climate. Winter lasts from January to February summer from March to May south-west monsoon from June to September north-east monsoon from October to December.


Food

Kodagu is known for its culinary delights, they are unique like the land and the people, and most ingredients, various spices, are locally available. Among the south Indian cuisines, Kodagu cuisine easily takes the top rank, They have a good spread of dishes in both veg and non-veg, most popular of them being the pork dish known as "pandi curry".


People

Kodagu is a land of many communities. Although Kodavas are the main ethnic group, Gowdas, Brahmins, Christians and Jains are other communities who live in Kodagu. Besides these communities, tribes such as Yeravas, Kurubas, Airies and Kudiyas, who are believed to be the original settlers of the area, also live in Kodagu. Muslims from the Malabar coast, the Mapilles, to have been here for several years as traders and businessmen.

The Kodavas traditional attire is unique, warrior like attire with "peche kathi"(dagger), turban and all. The Kodava women's attire is nothing less unique. They wear the pleats of the saris at the back, ever since the mythical event, when Goddess Cauvery flowed in all the rush and took a sharp right at Balamuri, re-draping all the women bystanders.

The Kodavas are ancestor worshippers. Theirs is a martial race and it is not rare to find a Kodava in the highest echelons of our country's defence services even today. The local language Kodavatak, has influences of Kannada, Malayalam and Tamil.


Festivals

The Kodavas celebrate mainly three festivals Kailpoldu (Festival of Arms), Kaveri Sankramana (worship of river Kaveri) and Puttari (Harvest festival)

Kailpoldu is celebrated on 3 September.The day signifies the completion of "nati" – meaning the transplantation of the rice (paddy) crop. The festival signifies the day when men should prepare to guard their crop from wild boars and other animals, since during the preceding months, in which the family were engaged in the fields, all weapons were normally deposited in the "Kanni Kombare", or the prayer room. Hence on the day of Kailpoldu, the weapons are taken out of the Pooja room, cleaned and decorated with flowers.

Cauvery Sankramana festival normally takes place in mid-October, is the most auspicious day in the Kodava calendar, is celebrated on Tula Sankramana , when it is believed that goddess Cauvery appears in the form of a spring (Theerthodbhava) which emerges at Talacauvery. Lakhs of devotees gather to witness the Theerthodbhava.

Huttari, which means "new rice" in Kodava tak is celebrated in the month of Marghashira (November or December). The family along with friends and workers led by one of the women carrying the traditional lamp, go to the fields and cut a few sheaves of paddy. These sheaves signifying fertility, are then woven into garlands and adorn all imprortant plcaes like the main door, prayer room, well , cattle shed, etc.

The week that follows Huttari witnesses rich cultural activities of singing and group dancing like rhythmic and brisk Kolata for the men and graceful swaying of ummatata for the women. Cane reeds are used as swords in the traditional game called periyakali which is played to the tune of beating drums at the village pastures.


Tourism

Kodagu, the paradise, is fast becoming the favourite destination among tourists compared to other spots in India. Easily accessible from Bangalore, Mysore and Kannur to the south, tourists find Kodagu a convenient and relaxing weekend getaway destination. Coorg has been a favourite with trekking, birding and cycling enthusiasts for long. Many of the tourists come here to enjoy the torrential monsoon rains too. The dry seasons are best for spotting wildlife near waterholes. Generally the best times to visit Coorg starts from October, with the festivals, till when the monsoon starts, in June.
