`Mosaru Kudike' brings in communal harmony

Special Correspondent

MANGALORE: Youths from all communities in Mangalore came together on Saturday night to participate in "Mosaru Kudike" which is part of the celebrations to mark Krishna Janmashtami. Various youth associations had put up Mosaru Kudike Chapparas in different parts of the city, the most important ones were in Urva Stores, Car Street, Kudroli and Mannagudda. The mood was sheer fun as "human pyramids", which were formed in an attempt to break the mud pots, fell like a pack of cards when a weak link gave way. Sometimes there is cash in the pots or vegetables, fruits and even soft toys in the pots. According to one enthusiast, Sathish from Urva, last year there was one kudike that had CDs, cassettes and watches. Rasool of Kudroli, who regularly participates in the Mosaru Kudike, is happy to be there as one among the community.

He said being a Muslim did not prevent him from participating in the festivities. In Capitanio, Christians joined the celebrations.
