Speaking at Kaadina Makkala Radio habba’ programme organised in Madikeri on Wednesday, he said the tribal population is on decline owing to health complications and attack of wild animals. There is a need to check dwindling of population among the tribals.
He called upon the tribals not to consume alcohol and become prey to the tactics of middlemen and also educate their children.
“The urban dwellers are engaged in harming nature. However, tribals live in harmony with the nature. Hence, they are the conservers of nature. The urban population should not consider tribals as uncivilised. They are also civilised individuals. Instead of branding them as ‘forest dwellers,’ it would be better to call them as tribals,” he said.
Madikeri AIR Deputy Director Indira Gajaraj said that tribals play a vital role in conserving nature.
Kodagu Jilla Budakattu Krishikara Sangha President Dobi said that tribals have not learnt their culture and tradition by attending schools and colleges.
They have learnt lessons while living amidst plants and animals.
Kodava Sahitya Academy former president Bacharaniyanada Appanna said that Kodagu is known for its culture and tradition.
Akashavani announcer Abdul Rasheed also spoke.
Members of Jenukuruba, Panjari Erava, Pani Erava, Deva Soliga, Poomalekudiya, Malekudiya, Kembatti, Meda, Kapala presented cultural programmes on the occasion. Antiques were exhibited at Gandhi Maidan on the occasion.

In 1834, the British East India Company had resolved to invade Kodagu and annex it. The Company sent in an army of 6,000 sepoys, divided into four columns, into Kodagu — one column was to enter from the east, one to enter from the north and two to enter from the west. They were to march into the capital Madikeri. The northern column marched towards Harangi (now famous for the dam) to meet the eastern column. A village in the woods at the base of a mountain pass lay in their path.
This village was the chief base of the resistance in Kodagu led by an official called Mathanda Appachu. He had secured the village with thick wooden palisades. Behind the wooden palisades through the arrow-slits of the palisades, the Kodavas aimed their guns at the British and shot at them. The column couldn’t hurt them. It was a fierce battle which raged on for four-and-a-half hours. Col. Mills tried to attack the village from the flank. But he was shot dead in the process. Forty eight soldiers, including three officers, were shot dead and 118 were left wounded on the East India Company’s side. There were no known casualties on the side of the natives. The East India Company was forced to retreat and take a different route.
The western column also met with some resistance. Its men marched towards Virajpet but came across several palisades. After some persistence, the palisades fell to the column’s attack one by one and the men marched on. But the column counted a dozen dead, including a lieutenant, and 36 wounded by the time they made their way through. Elsewhere as well, the Kodavas provided some resistance but were eventually forced to retreat. The eastern column which arrived through Kushalnagar brought in howitzers. Six Kodavas were killed on the banks of the Cauvery. The remaining retreated and the Company troops proceeded. The war ended when the last Raja of Kodagu sent his dewans to surrender to the east column and escort them into Madikeri. Within three days, the Raja emerged from hiding in his private palace at Nalknad, also known as Nalnad, and surrendered.
In the 18th century, Amara Sulya was given to the Raja of Kodagu by the Raja of Nagara. The Raja of Kodagu had aided the Nagara Raja in collecting tribute from another raja. As a symbol of their friendship, the Nagara Raja gave Amara Sulya to the Kodagu Raja. From this region, a regular supply of coconuts would arrive at the temple of the river goddess Cauvery. Immediately after Kodagu came under the East India Company in 1834, Amara Sulya was separated from it and made part of South Canara (now Dakshina Kannada) district of the then Madras province.
Cause for the insurgence
Under the Kodagu Rajas, the people of Sulya paid their revenues in kind. But now they came under the District Collector of Mangalore, who demanded that they pay their taxes in money. They were now placed under the mercy of those who gave them money in exchange for their produce. For three years, they paid their revenue in money but in 1837, they were unable to pay the money. The agriculturists expressed their inability to pay the revenue. Instead they had their agricultural produce which they could give.
The District Collector of Mangalore and his shrestidhar (clerk) arrived at Puttur in March. They were accompanied by a troop of over 150 soldiers and three officers. The Collector and his shresthidar tried to intimidate the people by warning them that only money would be accepted. They had nothing to do with agricultural produce. If the taxes weren’t paid on time then their cattle and lands would be confiscated.
Meanwhile two monks, Aparampara and Kalyanaswamy, claimed the thrones of Kodagu and Nagara respectively. They took advantage of the agriculturists’ grievances against the Company to start the insurgence.
On March 29, 1837, Atlur Rammappayya, a local officer, was killed by unknown people. This is seen as the start of the insurgence.
Capture of Mangalore
People were enraged with the Collector and gathered at a jungle clearing in Puttur. Some 500 of them go together, and took up sticks, oidekattis (Kodava war knives) and guns. That day the Bellare treasury was ransacked. The mob chased the Collector and his men who were resting at the travellers’ bungalow.
On seeing the irate mob, the Collector and his men left for Mangalore in the middle of the night. It was March 30, 1837.
Along the way government offices were attacked and treasuries captured. On April 2, the insurgents reached Bantwal. Here three local chieftains, Lakshmappa Banga of Nandavar, Manjappa Hegde of Dharmasthala and Chandrashekhara Chowta of Mudabidri, joined them with their men and resources.
Fifty-nine soldiers among the Collector’s men were killed in those few days. The Collector and his surviving men arrived at Mangalore on April 3. On April 4, the European military and civilians stationed at Mangalore resolved to leave the town’s port by boats to Cannanore (Kannur) port in Malabar (Kerala). As there were few boats, the women and the children were sent away first, while some of the men, especially the soldiers stayed back. The Judge of Mangalore and his assistant led the fleeing people to a ship called the Eamont.
The Eamont set sail towards Cannanore on April 5. The ammunition depot in Mangalore caught fire and blew up. That day in the afternoon Mangalore was occupied by the mob. The prisoners in Mangalore jail were released. The flag of the natives was flown at Mangalore.
When Eamont reached Cannanore, its passengers informed the authorities about the situation in Mangalore.
Troops were sent from Cannanore to Mangalore. They arrived in the evening of April 6 to reinforce the European garrison. On April 7, the native mob returned but were driven out and killed in large numbers. More European troops arrived in from Cannanore, Mumbai, Bangalore and Madikeri.
By April 16, the British had taken control of Mangalore. Troops were stationed at the place who remained there until December 12, 1837.
In Kodagu, the insurgence had three leaders: Guddera Appaiah (or Guddemane Appaiah/Appayya) of Kodagu Balamuri, Mandira Uthaiah of Nalnad and Mallaiah of Shantali. On April 14, proclamation letters seeking support for the movement had reached several parts of Kodagu. Plans were made to capture Madikeri fort. The Kodavas of Nalnad and Tavunad immediately rose and followed Subedar Guddera Appaiah and Subedar Mandira Uthaiah. Kodavas from Beppunad and other parts were unsure about what needed to be done so they consulted the dewans at Madikeri. One of the three dewans, Laxminarayana supported the revolutionaries. Laxminarayana was captured by the British and imprisoned.
Superintendent LeHardy was the British officer in charge of Kodagu. He instructed the two remaining dewans, Bopu and Ponnappa, to support him. LeHardy accompanied Bopu’s men to scout the parts of Kodagu towards Sulya. However they didn’t find any of the revolutionaries there. Only then that LeHardy came to know of the involvement of Uthu (Mandira Uthayya), Subedar of Nalnad. Some of dewan Bopu’s own relatives and friends supported the movements cause. LeHardy suspected Bopu, an old man, and charged him of treason because it was his sources who had misinformed them. Bopu wept before him and pleaded innocence. The native police was then mobilised to suppress the revolt.
Then Bopu and his police force went towards Sulya. The men had armed themselves with sticks and two of them proceeded before Bopu because Chetty-Kudiya, a revolutionary, had promised to shoot down Bopu on seeing him. They went a little beyond Madikeri when they met Muddayya and Appayya, one a former Subedar and the other a former Parpatyagara. They were two of Bopu’s friends who secretly supported the insurgence. They had been responsible for misinforming Bopu and thus embarrassing him before LeHardy.
The dewan’s men beat them up and left them for half dead. Further on the march, the force met insurgent Kodavas from Nalnad. They were beaten up severely and their leader Subedar Mandira Uthayya, who was among them, was made to surrender.
A regiment of Europeans and natives arrived under Col. Williamson to Madikeri. On April 16, the people of Yedavanad in Kodagu had planned to take over Madikeri as instructed by the proclamations. But LeHardy and Williamson had their troops stationed at Madikeri and they sent men towards Yedavanad to eventually thwart these plans. The Yedavanad people who were involved in the insurgence were made to surrender.
The battle at Sulya
Bopu marched into Sulya with his native policemen. There were skirmishes between his men and the revolutionaries. Dr. Palmer, an assistant surgeon, and his family had been made captives by the revolutionaries for 18 days.
When the revolutionaries were fleeing, Bopu caught up with them near Udoor and got Palmer and his family released. Later Bopu got Devappa of Mangalore, a minor government official who was held prisoner by the insurgents at Puttur, released as well.
While Bopu was already in Sulya, a Company officer, Col. Green, led his troops into the region. The revolutionaries were cornered and this culminated into the battle of Katkai Sulya. Subedar Guddera Appayya was captured and the treasury was recovered. Col. Willamson then entered Sulya from Madikeri. By April 26, the revolt had ended in Kodagu and Sulya.

The two monks who played a role in the Kodagu uprising were later captured, while they were trying to escape, and sent away for imprisonment. Kalyanaswamy was tried and hanged on June 19. Aparampara was imprisoned for thirty years in Bangalore.
Many other insurgents were imprisoned and tried by the courts.
Lakshmappa Bangarasu of Nandavar (in South Canara) was sentenced to death on May 23, 1837. Kumble Subbaraya Hegde of Kasaragod was hanged in Mangalore. Guddera Appaiah was hanged in Madikeri on October 31.
Manju of Uppinangady was also hanged in Mangalore. Kukanur Chennayya of Bellare, Subraya of Kayartody in Bantwal and Kedambadi Annaiah of Bantwal were awarded the death sentence. Kedambadi Rama Gowda, Chetty Kudiya, Kurta Kudiya and Peraje Krishnaiah were deported and imprisoned rigorously, probably for life.
Subedar Uthaiah of Nalknad, Shantaiah and Mallaiah were awarded imprisonment for fourteen years.
Much of these events were mentioned in the letters written by the Company government officers of South India.
The 1834 events that occurred in Kodagu are mentioned in Richter’s book, ‘The Gazetteer of Coorg’.
The events that occurred in Dakshina Kannada are narrated in B S Rao’s book ‘South Kanara, 1799-1860’.

Detector has been installed in the wake of Hyderabad bomb blasts
In the backdrop of bomb explosion in Hyderabad three days ago, the police have tightened security in Madikeri city which is one of the major tourism hubs in the State.
The police personnel have been posted in some of the key areas in the city including bus stands and tourism places. However, tight security is provided to Raja Seat on priority basis as large number of tourists throng to this garden, especially on week ends. The metal detector installed at the entry gate of the garden will function on three days in a week including Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
The Bomb Detection Squad which functions under Kodagu District Police Department has installed this metal detector. A team of nine personnel are operating in this squad and the personnel have undergone special training at a training centre in Bangalore.
In case a bomb is traced, a special Bomb Diffusing Squad will arrive from Bangalore to diffuse the bomb. According to the police sources, in the wake of bomb blasts in the nation, the number of police personnel guarding the Madikeri bus stand too has been increased. The general public who are accustomed to undergo examination from metal detector in bigger cities like Bangalore and Mysore, are co-operating in Madikeri too.
Speaking to Deccan Herald, Kodagu Superintendent of Police M N Anucheth said that metal detector has been installed at Raja Seat as a preventive measure in the wake of Hyderabad twin bomb blasts. “As the terrorists mostly target more populated areas, metal detectors are installed in such places. Raja Seat and bus stand are under special scrutiny in Madikeri,” he said.

In the midst of blossoming coffee bushes in interior Coorg lies a forgotten temple, the erstwhile capital of the Haleri kings.
Lakshmi Sharath -
The Nalknadu Aramane, the palace of the erstwhile Haleri dynasty of Coorg, now wears a forlorn look.
If stone walls do not a prison make, they do not make a palace either. However, in Coorg, you can find one such monument. Shrouded by dense coffee plantations, it hides behind its walls the secrets of the Haleri Dynasty that ruled the coffee country for more than 200 years from the 17th to the 19th centuries. I am on my way to discover this lost piece of history. Our journey takes us through mists and mountains as we drive through interior Coorg, looking for this historic monument that traces the origins and the end of this dynasty.
The mist plays with the mountains. The hills come alive. As we drive up the Western Ghats, the slopes are carpeted by coffee and cardamom plantations. It had rained just then and the coffee plantations are brimming with snowy-white blossoms sparkling like gems – a blend of diamonds and emeralds in a jeweled setting.
We drive through Virajpet and enter the Nalknadu region at Kakkabe. After paying our respects to the powerful deity Iguthuppa, we walk around the plantations and learn that Coorg’s tryst with coffee started right here in Nalknadu more than a couple of centuries ago. It is believed that the coffee seeds were planted right here by the Mopla community from Kerala who traded with the Arabs. The local people cultivated “wild coffee” here as small holdings came up on the fertile slopes of the Western Ghats that were too steep to grow rice.
We are not in Nalknadu for coffee. We are in search of a small palace hidden somewhere in the hills that had been witness to some events in the lives of the Haleri kings. The origin of the Haleri dynasty is traced to Veeraraja, a nephew of Sadashiva Nayaka of the Ikkeri dynasty who overthrew the local Nayaks, including the chieftains of Bhagamandala and Talacauvery, and went on to become the king of Kodagu with Haleri as its capital. His grandson, Mudduraja, later changed the capital to Madikeri. But our interest is in king Doddaveerarajendra who ruled in the 18th century and was constantly engaged in wars with Tipu Sultan. And that is where our search leads us.
We enter a small hamlet called Yavakapadi in Kakkabe, where the Nalknad Aramane built by Dodda Veerarajendra in the 18th century awaits us. There are coffee plantations all around. A small mud road appears out of nowhere. A beautiful two-storey structure painted in red with a tiled roof, old wall paintings and pillars, gazes at us as we open the portals of the palace. A small mandapa in white is located close by. A drizzle starts as we hear a sound behind us. A caretaker silently opens the main door for us. We are the only visitors. As we soak in the moment, we are given a capsule of history.
Hyder Ali captured Coorg when Lingaraja I died in 1780 and took the young princes, Dodda Veerarajendra and Linga Rajendra, captive. They were sent to a fort in Gorur and a minister ruled over Coorg. While Hyder Ali fought the British, the locals rebelled and overthrew the minister. Tipu Sultan recaptured Coorg, but Dodda Veerrajendra escaped. He fought relentlessly against Tipu Sultan and during one of the wars he retreated into a dense forest in Nalknad. He built a palace here and made it into his operation base and also got married to Mahadevammaji.
The caretaker shows us around. We climb a small ladder and shows us to a hidden chamber in the roof. We are also taken to the torture room, the royal bedrooms, and the main durbar.
The palace, which had seen happier times, was also witness to the end of the dynasty. It was the final refuge of the last king, Chikkaveerarajendra, who spent his last few days hiding from the British who eventually deposed him. In many ways it is the only living symbol of the beginning and the end of the Haleri dynasty.
We head downstairs and sit by the pillars. A government school has now been built adjoining the palace. A bunch of schoolchildren are playing about. I wonder if they realize that their childhood playground was once a battlefield. As I sit there pondering, the rain tumbles down, refreshing the mood and the atmosphere.

In an overconnected world of social networking sites and every application that lets you broadcast your every move, the idea of a holiday is not just about leaving workmates behind anymore. Today to me it’s about leaving all this technology behind so you can take a vacation from everything that connects you to the world.
As I landed in Bengaluru, groggy, early one morning, I closed my eyes briefly, took a deep breath and mentally geared myself for a long, almost seven-hour drive to Coorg. Allowing myself the way of listening to some music off the radio in the car, I was determined to use as few gadgets as possible.
The drive was unending, the heat from time to time unbearable and a patch of the road that I was convinced would cause my back to snap. By the time I reached the hotel in Madikeri (seven km beyond Coorg), I was yearning for a bed, waiting to drop into it and pacify my stiffened back, with no intention whatsoever to loo around until I felt adequately rested.
When I walked into the reception of Vivanta by Taj, Madikeri, the staggering view of the hills and ravines took my breath and tiredness away in one swift second. Unobstructed by human habitation stood nature, waiting to cradle you and leave you rejuvenated. Standing at 4,000 sq. ft from sea level amidst a thick rainforest, I was embraced by a short chilly breeze while sipping a Coorg coffee delight bella kaapi.
Within minutes of checking into my room, the very organic feel of the place took me in. Then I discovered that I had stretch myself on the top of my toe and as much away from the room to possibly try and get one bar of cellphone network. If the idea was to get in touch with your inner self on a holiday, that the network was awful most certainly helped.
So I made my way to the Jiva Spa, a much talked about centre of Ayurveda, natural massages and wellness. Sixty minutes later, after the masseuse relaxed every muscle of mine, I stepped out convinced that I’d go back to my room and hit the sack. It wasn’t the best massage I’ve had but it certainly gave me the spring in my step to go out and try to explore a tiny portion of this 108-acre property.
One of the best things on offer is a nature trail. The very knowledgeable naturalist, walked us through narrow paths and dense sholas, reminding us of what we miss out on a daily basis as we live our high pressure city lives.
Rare orchids, bamboo plants, ferns and so many other botanical beauties cut you out of the din of a community and put you one with nature.
When I got ready to come back home, the first thing that got my attenti was just how much noise I was cut off from while enjoying myself in this carefully maintained property. A holiday real should be about relaxing and not Instagramming and updating your statuses. The long drive was worth it but the silence that followed elevated the experience beyond the 4,000 sq. ft where the property was ensconced. Disconnect from your daily din and make this trip to Madikeri.

Questioning the increase in wards, P P Chami had filed a writ petition in the High Court, on March 24, 2008. During the proceedings, the court directed the state government to suspend the order on 31 wards. As the elected representatives were elected for 31 wards, the court had directed to maintain status quo and asked the government to restructure wards for the next election
