Kodagu Utsava on May 28, 29

Staff Correspondent

It will showcase the rich and unique culture of the district


Youth associations and social organisations urged to take part actively

The utsava is being held in the district after eight years


Mysore: Kodagu Utsava, a festival showcasing the rich and unique culture of Kodagu, will be held in Madikeri on May 28 and 29, according to information received here.

M.P. Appachu Ranjan, Madikeri MLA, who presided over a preliminary meeting at the Old Assembly Hall in Madikeri on Tuesday, sought the cooperation of the elected representatives, officials and the general public for the success of the festival.

People hailing from Kodagu, who had distinguished themselves in sports, cinema, folklore, art, and other fields, would be felicitated. The festival would also highlight the lifestyle, food habits, fairs and festivals of different communities in Kodagu, Mr. Ranjan said.

He appealed to the youth associations and social organisations to take part in the festival actively. President of the zilla panchayat Ravi Kushalappa said the cooperation of all sections of society was needed to make Kodagu Utsava a success as it was not held in the district for eight years.

If there were minor hiccups in the conduct of the festival they should be overcome, Mr. Kushalappa said.

Deputy Commissioner K.H. Ashwatha Narayana Gowda said Kodagu Utsava had to be postponed earlier on account of several compelling reasons. Chief Executive Officer of the zilla panchayat N. Krishnappa said the festival would come out with a display of the rich culture of the district.

President of the Kodagu District Chamber of Commerce and Industry G. Chidvilas, theatre personality Addanda C. Cariappa, president of the Kodagu District Kannada Sahitya Parishat T. P. Ramesh, and president of the Kodagu Press Club H.T. Anil spoke.

Zilla panchayat members, Superintendent of Police Manjunath Annigeri, Additional Deputy Commissioner K.M. Chandre Gowda, Deputy Conservator of Forests of Madikeri K.S. Anand, Assistant Commissioner M.R. Ravi, and president of the Karnataka Kodava Sahitya Academy Rani Machaiah were present.

The names of the president and convenors of sub-committees for the conduct of the utsava were announced.
