TO WHOME SO EVER IT MAY CONCERN

Impending Danger from Water Colossal Harangi Reservoir -Should Be Dismantled: A Peaceful Sathyagraha By CNC on 17-05-2019 in the premises of DC’s office Madikeri Coorg Harangi Reservoir back water region of 7(seven) Naads in the North-western Coorg aka Codavaland caused the unprecedented land slide disaster in the year 2018

In fact Harangi Reservoir was constructed unscientifically across Harangi River and it is believed that the same has been built with a mischievous intent & only in order to cause inexplainable loss to Codava occupied territory.

Harangi Reservoir happens to be the first ever rapacious act after Codagu 'C' State merged with Mysore; now Karnataka in 1956. Even people of catchment area opposed the dangerous plan of Govt to construct Harangi Reservoir.

Consequent to the most unscientific construction of Harangi Reservoir around 7(Seven) Rivers & Rivulets originating from Western Ghats, the calamity/disaster affected 7 Naads.

In reality the Govt wanted to collect water from this dam only to cater Old Mysore region. The order to store water beyond the storage capacity in the Reservoir has definitely ended up in the back water punch/pressure which caused the puncture/ burst of water veins & nerves of ground water tables.

The back water pressure from Harangi reservoir has been going on since past 50 years. We believe that this has ended up in the land slide disaster last year in 2018.

The storage of excess water in Harangi reservoir without a thought to it’s consequences has cracked the earth. Strangely, the concerned authorities have stored water even during rainy season throughout.

CNC has been insisting for the dismantling of the dangerous Harangi Reservoir ever since the day the land slide occurred during the year 2018.(Even the people of Catchment area had opposed the dangerous design of Govt to construct Harangi Reservoir.) It is not too late. The Govt may call an end to the continuation of the danger by dismantling the “Harangi reservoir” at once.

"A delayed discharge of water from Harangi Reservoir and accumulated silt also had led to disaster”

Quixotically enough, the govt through its officials involved, forecast the possibilities of repetition of such calamity in this monsoon year also. They do not ascribe any reason but are causing fear psychosis among the residents.

The Govt must remember that such a danger would continue as long as the dam stands in its present state. Unless the dangerous dam is dismantled immediately, no other precautionary measures will help.

The Govt has not (di-silted) cleared the silt in the Harangi Reservoir even once since the time of its construction. In addition one must know that the entire silt flowed from more than 100 KM during the time of calamity to Harangi Reservoir.

The man made calamity would continue till such a day when Harangi Reservoir is dismantled.

The main reason for criminal silence regarding dismantling of Harangi Reservoir is to continue feeding the irrigation & industrial facilities of other districts at the cost of seemingly natural calamity like land slides caused due to unplanned dam construction.

CNC insists for dismantling of Harangi Reservoir. But Govt could have thought of permanently closing the Crust gate/Flood gate and minimising the height of the Reservoir and allowing the excess water to flow up on the Reservoir by certain other methods like the one in "Chikli Reservoir" instead of allowing it to flow through the Crust gate. By doing so one can avoid the storage of excess water & back pressure & punching. Last year (2018) crust gates were opened only after the landslide and this sudden excess water gushing out from the crust gate lead to floods on either side areas of Cauvery river bank. So people of Kodagu had to suffer the flood situation also along with the landslides.

During the construction of Harangi dam vast fertile land along with precious fauna and flora has been destroyed. The families who got disrupted from that place have not yet got any compensation till now and are leading a pathetic life after losing everything because of Harangi dam.

Therefore we (CNC) take it to be our duty to pressurize & demand for the dismantling of Harangi Reservoir as early as possible and to give compensation to people who gave up their land for dam construction.

We definitely will stage a Sathyagriha in the vicinity of the DC's Office Kodagu aka Codavaland aka Coorg- Madikeri The catastrophic landslide of 2018 has displaced & dispersed over 15 thousand people and caused unprecedented devastation in the western ghat sector of 7 Naads of North-Western part of Codava region.

Sustained efforts and large financial resources will be needed for rebuilding and compensate people for their losses.

Disaster management capabilities need to be further improved in view of the threat from Water monster "Harangi Reservoir" wherein water level will increase during monsoon.

Thanking you,

After 32 failed invasions on Kodagu aka Codava land Tipu conspired to eliminate entire Codava tribal nationals and cunningly massacred thousands of innocent Codava warriors along with their wives & children. Those who survived were taken as prisoners with heavy chains tied on their legs and dragged them till Srirangapatana where they were circumcised and persecuted. Womenfolk were tortured and raped in front of their children and husband, just like the recent horrific sufferings of “Yezidi” womenfolk of ‘Sinjar’ mountain by ISIS.( Tipu is the predecessor of ISIS and ISIS is the successor of Tipu.)

Tipu colluded with the French East India Company to form an allied force whose military was under the leadership of French General Lolly and Nawab of Karnool Runmust Khan.

This tragic genocide at Devaattparamb cannot be forgotten by Codavas.It has become a traditional heritage of Codava tribe to offer branch with leaves/floral tribute at the Devaattparamb genocide site whenever they cross that area specially when they go on pilgrimage to Talacauvery, the birth place of mother Goddess Cauvery.

To whom so ever it may be concern.

Codava tribal world should be cautious about their statutory rights regarding Gun Exemption privilege - and Govt officialdom should also respect for their special privilege.

Codava tribal race need not seek licence to hold guns under Indian arms act since the same is our birth right. Gun is a reverential article of worship by Codava tribal world. Gun has a special sanctity in each Codava Tribes temporal seat i.e Nellakki Nadubade. Even starting from British period the then British East India company Govt exempted Codava Tribals from the stringent disarmament act 1861and subsequently after relinquish the power of east india company the Imperial Govt i.e British raj Govt [regime] also ratified and continued that privilege and all succeeding Govts after India became a democracy and later it adopted the Constitution have also strictly followed the thing. Indian Arms Act 1959 considers such a thing as a fundamental right of Codava tribal world. Such being the case Codava tribal world exempted from depositing their Fire Arms during electioneering period also. One exemplary act by the then Chief Election Commissioner of India MR T N Sheshan who was the pioneer and most up righting CEC who reformed the process of the entire Electoral college without mincing words has mentioned and ratified that Codava tribal race need not deposit their fire arms with police station during Election period.

Unfortunately some ignorant Codava tribes men have also deposited are depositing this Fire arms without knowing the prevailing provisions of law as mentioned above. Unfortunately certain officials are exploiting the situation and force such innocent Codava tribe to deposit their fire arms instead of giving proper guidance and advice to the beneficiary Codava Tribe is an act of abusing the law and it amounts the criminal breach of trust. One cannot and shall not abuse the statutory rights enshrined in the Indian Arms Act Section 3&4. Holding gun without licence is a statutory guarantee for Codava tribal world.

Therefore we request each and every Codava wherever he or she resides shall not surrender their fire arms to the govt during the Election period or any such circumstances.

The provision of law of exemption applicable throughout Indian State wherever Codava tribal race resides. The district electoral officer has also re-iterated an exemption without mincing words in this regard. Codava tribal world must know that the differences between exemption to hold fire arms and the licence. Codavas should be cautious of their privilege and be conscious about their statutory rights and stop exhibiting foolhardy behaviour.

Memorandum
Respected Sir/ Madam
SUB: Transact in Codava Thakk in reciprocation to the Proclamation of UNO

The United Nations General Assembly proclaimed 2019 as 'International year of Indigenous Languages; Mother tongue. Urging to direct the organs of Govt, semi Govt, religious activities, in school & all such organisations to transact in indigenous language of Codava tribe ie Codava Thakk which is the mother tongue of Codava tribe, thereby assigning a proper meaning to considering the year 2019 to be the World Indigenous languages year.

Language is the essence and identity of culture and is a major tool for communication.

Codava tribal world also should particularly use Codava thakk in all their transactions. Unless we enliven our own Mother Tongue nobody else will follow the same.

UNO itself has given us the opportunity to use such a thing by announcing the year 2019 to be the Indigenous languages year. It definitely is a gift to Codava tribe for rejuvenation of their mother tongue.

“To every one of us, mother language is one of the most precious gifts that we have in our lives. Each and every language spoken throughout the globe represents a unique and distinct cultural heritage, melodious songs, colourful environment, tasty food and a healthy society to live in, Where people Express their feelings and emotions without any hesitation.”

M J Warsi a linguist & Author, Alighar University, UP.

"The loss of language is part of the loss of whole cultures and knowledge systems, including philosophical systems, oral literary and music traditions, environmental knowledge systems, medical knowledge, and important cultural practice and artistic skills.”

International Mother Tongue day- CNC Remembering Devaattparamb genocide victims. Offered Floral Tribute with Reverential Prayers.

Date : 22-02-2019

It’s amazing how any human being will see his/her dreams in their respective mother tongue only .Even during joyous moments & traumatic conditions he/she expresses/exclaims in his mother tongue only. While in battlefield one exclaims his war cry in his mother tongue only. Even when seriously wounded in war he screams in his mother tongue only (Though he may know many languages, that doesn't matter. Mother tongue will spontaneously make him to speak and think about his mother which is unique & universally accepted unwritten divine policy) Codava being the martial tribe participated in innumerable wars in Coorg, National & Global arena he exclaimed War cry in his mother tongue Codava Takk only. Similarly in Devaatt Parmab tragic genocide on Codava tribe cunningly perpetrated by Tipu & French east India Company Army to eliminate entire Codava tribe, Codava martial tribes expressed trauma by screaming in Codava Takk only. For these reasons, on international mother tongue day we CNC offer floral tribute at Devaatt Parmab tragic massacre site besides Sathyagriha at Madikeri.

CNC honoured Devaattparamb genocide dead’s by performing reverential prayer and offering floral tribute at Devaattparamb genocide site at early hours on International Holocaust remembrance dated 21 Feb 2019. 234 years back on the fateful day i.e. 12 Dec 1785. Codavas defeated Hyder & Tipu 32 times. After 32 failed invasions on Kodagu aka Codava land Tipu conspired to eliminate entire Codava tribal nationals and cunningly massacred thousands of innocent Codava warriors along with their wives & children. Those who survived were taken as prisoners with heavy chains tied on their legs and dragged them till Srirangapatana where they were circumcised and persecuted. Womenfolk were tortured and raped in front of their children and husband, just like the recent horrific sufferings of “Yezidi” womenfolk of ‘Sinjar’ mountain by ISIS.( Tipu is the predecessor of ISIS and ISIS is the successor of Tipu.)

CNC honoured Devaattparamb genocide dead’s by performing reverential prayer and offering floral tribute at Devaattparamb genocide site at early hours on International Holocaust remembrance dated 21 Feb 2019. 234 years back on the fateful day i.e. 12 Dec 1785. Codavas defeated Hyder & Tipu 32 times. After 32 failed invasions on Kodagu aka Codava land Tipu conspired to eliminate entire Codava tribal nationals and cunningly massacred thousands of innocent Codava warriors along with their wives & children. Those who survived were taken as prisoners with heavy chains tied on their legs and dragged them till Srirangapatana where they were circumcised and persecuted. Womenfolk were tortured and raped in front of their children and husband, just like the recent horrific sufferings of “Yezidi” womenfolk of ‘Sinjar’ mountain by ISIS.( Tipu is the predecessor of ISIS and ISIS is the successor of Tipu.)

CNC honoured Devaattparamb genocide dead’s by performing revarantial prayers & offering floral tribute. Codava National Council President Shree N.U. Nachappa Codava, Kaliyanda Prakash, Areyada Girish, Chembanda Janath & Monnanda Cariappa were present.

For the Kind Publication - Press Release – Press Conference

Respected Sirs-

Memorandum

Sub:-International Mother Tongue Day on 21-02-2019– A Codava sathyagraha by CNC - pressurizing to inclusion of Codava Thak(Codava Language) in the 8th Schedule of our Constitution and further treat Codava Thakk as one of the Languages of UNO .

We are presenting the memorandum to the below mentioned dignitaries Shri. Ramanath Kovind Ji, His Excellency The President of India, Shri Venkaiah Naidu ji His Excellency The Vice President of India, Shri Narendra Modi ji,The Hon’ble Prime Minister of India, Shri Rajanath Singh ji, Shri Mallikarjuna Kharge ji The Hon’ble Leader of the Opposition in the Lok Sabha, The Hon’ble Union Minister for Home Affairs,Dr. Date: 12/02/2019Subramanian Swamy Ji, The Hon'le Member of Rajya Sabha,Shri Vaaju Bhai Vala ji,The Hon’ble Governor, State of Karnataka, Shri H D Kumara Swamy ji the Hon’ble Chief Minister of Karnataka, Shri Prakash Javadekar Ji,The Hon’ble Union Minister For HRD, Mr. Antonio Guttrres, His Excellency The Secretary General,United Nations Organization,Shri Jual Oramji, The Hon’ble Union Minister for Tribal Affairs, (MOS),Her Excellency,Irina Bokova,The Director General UNESCO,His Excellency,Prince Zaid Raad Al Hussain,United Nations High Commissioner,For Human Rights (UNHRC),Mr. Kiron Rijiju ji, The Hon’ble Union MOS Home Affairs,Dr. Mahesh Sharma Ji,The Hon’ble Union Minister for Culture,Shri B.K Hariprasad Ji,The Hon’ble Member of Rajyasabha, through DC, after conducting a peaceful Sathyagraha in the vicinity of D.C Office Madikeri, Kodagu,(Coorg) Karnataka.

We are happy to announce that Codava Thak is the living spoken language of Codava race and has been identified as popular spoken languages among other 16 such languages in India. To quote formidable evidence better always go through MANORAMA YEAR BOOK 2014 Published from kottayam 686001- Kerala, India. Incidentally MANORAMA YEAR BOOK is the result of a joint venture of the week and MALAYALA MANORAMA. We are further happy to announce that such a thing is the direct consequence of CNC/ Codava National Council’s agitation successively during the past 26 years and now that such a thing has been identified by the people and intelligentsia of this Nation. The MANORAMA YEAR BOOK is the prime source of knowledge for preparatory exams to IAS & IFS interns. MANORAMA YEAR BOOK is the outcome of known intellectuals, Socio- political scientists, scholars and authoritative personages across the world. Enough if one goes through the contents that appeared in the MANORAMA YEAR BOOK 2014 and has repeated in the matter even in the year 201, 2016 & 2017 also as mentioned to prove our claims about the inclusion of Codava Language in the 8th schedule of our Constitution. It in fact is the best and formal certificate about the significance of Codava language. Only the thing that remains to be done is the Govt of India should recognize Codava Thakk as a regular language and include the same in the 8th Schedule of our Constitution. A suggestion now comes fourth even though they said language had unique and independent character has been suppressed by the authorities throughout and now it has gained momentum on account of the relentless struggle towards such an end by our organization; i.e CNC / Codava National Council. No doubt true that there may be innumerable languages and each and every person certainly knows and talks many languages including his or her own mother Tongue, but strangely enough all individuals have dreams in their own mother Tongue. Hence our mother Tongue Codava Thakk is paramount for us. This is enough to substantiate Codava demand for the inclusion of the Codava Thakk in the 8th Schedule of our Constitution and also to be considered as one of the languages of UNO.

It hurts us to inform you that we definitly have submitted innumerable Memorandums and applications touching the question of Codava Land Autonomous Region and the inclusion of Codava Thak in the 8th Schedule of our Constitution during the course of our struggle and we have courage to add that Codava Thak full fills all the necessary qualifications to be incorporated in the 8th schedule of our Constitution.

We are conducting Sathyagraha on the day of 21/02/2018 in the vicinity of the office of the Deputy Commissioner of Kodagu Madikeri-571201 to mark the World Mother Tongue Day. One must remember that a Mother Tongue takes prominence and becomes paramount and mother tongue stands first the entire world takes secondary position.

The popular 16 spoken languages enlisted here under

1.Angik 2.Awadhi. 3.Bhojpuri. 4.Bundeli. 5.Chhatisgarhi. 6.Hariyanavi. 7.Hindustani. 8.Kanauji. 9.Magadhi 10.Marwari. 11.Bhili. 12.Gondi. 13.Codava.14.Kutchi. 15.Tulu . 16.Mahi.

The 22 languages which are included in the 8th schedule of our Constitution are enlisted here under

1.Assamese. 2.Bangali. 3.Gujarathi. 4.Hindhi. 5.Kannada. 6.Kashmiri. 7.Malayalam. 8.Marathi. 9.Oriya. 10.Punjabi. 11.Sanskrit. 12.Tamil. 13.Telugu14.Urdhu. 15.Sindhi was added in 1962.

By the 71st Amendment to the Constitution, 16.konkani. 17.Manipuri. 18.Nepali were added to the list in 1992. In 2003, four more languages were added 19.Bodo. 20.Dogri. 21.Maithili. 22.Santhali(92nd Amendment). It may not be an out of place act on our part if we be permitted to inform you that no prier recommendations of the any of the Constituent states is neither required nor mandatory for the inclusion of any language; much less Codava Thakk in the 8th schedule of our Constitution. To quote an example we drag this opportunity to remind you a fact that no prior recommendation was ever obtained from any states of Indian Union before the inclusion in the 8th schedule of above mentioned languages such an analogy should be followed in respect of Codava Thakk for inclusion in the 8th Schedule of our Constitution.

We appreciate the attitude, conviction & vision of Shri B.K Hariprasad, The Hon’ble member of Rajya Sabha in order to save Codava Thakk is proved while he moved a PVT member Bill (Constitution Amendment Bill 2016) in the parliament seeking the inclusion of Codava Thakk in the 8th schedule annex to our Constitution & It has been tabled & Discussed in the August House, cutting across the party line all the respectable members of Rajya Sabha supported the Bill moved by Mr. B.K Hariprasad for the inclusion of Codava Thakk in the 8th schedule of our Constitution, and on behalf of Govt MOS for Home Mr. Kiron Rijiju supported the move and he expressed the opinion that the Union Govt is willing to concede Codava Thakk for the inclusion of 8th Schedule in the Constitution.

It is an unforgettable factor that the known linguist of South India rev. Bishop Caldwell even went to the extent of asserting Codava Thakk to be the main mother source of the Pancha Dravida languages i.e Tulu, Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam & Kannada and affirms that Codava Thakk is the base sources of all these languages. Even the Nationally acclaimed linguist Pro. Sitakant Mahapathra has recommended the inclusion of 38 languages in the 8th schedule of our Constitution and Codava Thakk is the 19th in its list.

Demand for more languages for inclusion in the Eighth Schedule

At present, as per Ministry of Home Affairs,[7] there are demands for inclusion of 38 more languages in the Eighth Schedule to the Constitution. These are:

Angika
Banjara
Bazika
Bhojpuri
Bhoti
Bhotia
Bundelkhandi
Chhattisgarhi
Dhatki
English
Garhwali (Pahari)
Gondi
Gujjar/Gujjari
Ho
Kachachhi
Kamtapuri
Karbi
Khasi
Kodava (Coorgi)

Now a time certainly has reached to make a definitive arrangement to include Codava thak in the 8th schedule of our constitution as early as possible and in consonance with the things what we mentioned here under. To include Codava minority language i.e Codava thak in the Constitution and do all such things towards the things as are enlisted here under in the interest of justice, equity, equality and good morals.

The things what we demand are :

1. Include Codava Thakk in the 8th schedule of our constitution

2. Consider Codava Thakk as one of the languages of UNO.

3. Ethno Linguistic Codava Martial tribe/ Codava Mountain tribe/ Codava cardamom tribe/ Codava agro-pastoral tribe should be included in the ST list of our Constitution.

4. Codava National Council urges the Government to open Codavology bench in Global Nalanda University in Rajgir of Bihar, Indira Gandhi National Tribal University in Amarkantak of M P & Dravidian University in Kuppam of Chittur District of Andhra.

5. We assert that our Union Govt. should make it a point to request and assert the publishers of Oxford Lexicon to incorporate and introduce Codava Folkloric words in the dictionaries to be published. It is a fact that Oxford Lexicon finds place for 15000 words annually and having been acquired from other languages everywhere in the world. If such a thing is done touching Codava Thakk, the Oxford dictionary and Codava Thakk also enrich themselves. We request our Govt to direct the Army and police dept to introduce Codava Thakk in their language lab and make it point to insist all the trainees to memorize Codava words. It is a fact that every trainee should learn 5 different languages in the language lab.

6. Since the intentional failure of our successive Govts to protect constitutionally the Codava Thakk and Codava Tribe in order to save them from extinction. It is a certainty that what Philosopher George Bernard Shaw’s alarming that if any Govt prefers to destroy any particular race or tribe in its entirety it will eliminate that particular peoples language and their region and their inherent land where it is being spoken. Unfortunately George Bernard Shaw’s caution has almost come true in relation to Codava Thakk and their land and homeland. As such we assert that in order to save Codava Thakk & land of Codava tribals include them in the schedule list of our Constitution.

7. Treat Codava Thakk as the Administrative language with in Kodagu District under article 350B of our Constitution.

8. Include Codava Thakk in the regular curriculum under article 371 of our Constitution.

9. Consider Codava Thakk to be the third language in the curriculum in the entire state of Karnataka as is done with regard to Konkani language and French Language.

10. Recognize Codava minority race to be a regular linguistic minority (unfortunately not a single educational institution run by Codavas so far has been given minority education Institution tag all these years. Even though our language richly deserves such a thing) and extend all such reservations as are done with regard to other minority languages and linguistic minority groups in the state of Karnataka initially and the entire nation in general and facilitate to recognize education institutions already in existence and expected to be established in course of time and extend exemption under article 29 and 30 of our constitution

11. Declare the days of Codava minority’s festivities; i.e Puthari, Kailpoud, Edmayar, Kakkada padnet to be State holidays on par with other recognized festivals.

12. Switch over to all the historical and traditional Codava names of places in Kodagu as existed prior to 1956. Which have been changed to kannada hegemony and implement such a things at once.

13. Even though the govt of karanataka has agreed the recommendations made by Dr. Dwaraknath Commission to call Codava By race as “Codava” and “Codavaru” and remove the words of “Codaga” and “Codagaru”, the same has not been Published in the official gazette. We insist that such things to be published in the official gazette at once.

14. Codava thakk news bulletin should be Broadcasted in the DD1 and All India Radio throughout the state and nation on par with other languages. Permanent Codava service/ desk should be opened regarding Codava thakk in Prasara Bharathi (DD New Delhi and All India Radio new Delhi)

15. We insist our Govt. to request BBC (British Broadcasting Corporation) to open a Codava Thakk service has his being done in relation to Kurdis Service, Pasthun service etc etc at its earliest.

16. If a Prasara Bharathi service of hostile Country Pakistan’s “Balochi” language could be started in our DD news channel recently; why not the historically ancient Codava Thakk is given such credibility?

17. At Delhi Hut, INA (southern Delhi) Codava Cuisine outlet should be started.

18. Rich Heritage of Codava tribal World & Folkloric culture of Codava tribalism should be included in the intangible cultural heritage list of UNESCO.

We further insist that the things has made out above shall be implemented. We believe that our demands as mentioned above are recognized at least at this hour.

Addenda: After the amalgamation of our cherished homeland in 1956, the then Part 'C' State of India, systematic ethnic cleansing carried out step by step & Kannada hegemonic policy imposed on Codavas tribe. First step of such evil design was changing the names of all Codava festivities besides changing the traditional Codava names of every village into Kannada. For example our prime festival Puthari which symbolizes the arrival of New rice to Codava households; Pudia+ari is Puthari ,now Puthari is Kannadified into Huthari. Hutha+ari - Hutta means snake’s nest/den. Totally vulgarized. Puthari is a sacred festival on par with Pongal of Tamil calendar & Bisaki of Sikhism calendar.

Let us see the Codava folkloric villages’ & Hamlets’ names, how systematically vulgarized into Kannada. 1 Palanda into Halgunda, Payyada into Hysodlure, Nalnaad into Nalkunaadu, Botoli into Betoli, Thora into Thomara, Paleri into Haleri, Bonda into Bilugunda, Pattipole into Hattihole, Poramalenaad into Horamalenaad, Path into Hakathur, Permad into Hermadu,Pathur into Hathur, Buttangala into Bittangala, Podd into Hodduru, Balamberi into Balamuri, Pudikeri into Hudikeri, Noorokkanaad into Noorokkalunaad & so on. Besides, festivals like Kailpoud into Kailmuhart, Cauveri Changrandhi into Cauveri Sankramana, Bodnamme into Bedu Habba(can they dare to pronounce Pongal as Hongal? Bisaki as Visaki ?), Kakkada Padnett as Haati hadinentu. It shows their disrespect towards Codava heritage and identity. Even they repeatedly pronounce Codava in the all Governmental documents as Kodagaru in spite of Dr. Dwarakanath Commission report for rectification as Codava in Consideration of request made by CNC .This is the reflection of human rights violation by State Govt. through their occupational officialdom on Codava heritage. Karnataka Govt. wants to rename all the ancient places of Kannada territory. For example Belgaum into Belagavi, Bangalur into Bengaluru, Mangalore into Mangaluru, Mysore into Mysuru, Gulbarga into Kalaburgi, Bijapura into Vijayapura. In fact no such names were in existence earlier. Yogi Adhithyanath Govt. in UP has replaced the name of Lucknow into Lakanvathi and Allahabad into Prayagraj. Even earlier Governments have changed and replaced many Historical place name for example Bombay into Mumbai, Calcutta into Kolkata, Madras into Chennai, Cochin into Kochi & Trivandrum into Thiruvananthapuram.

Names will attain its birth/creation/origin according to the historical, Cultural, Social, Political & Folkloric situation of the respective places. Around any ancient/ Historical nomenclature of the places, it will be surrounded by thousands of folkloric beliefs & myths. Hence changing, Vulgarizing & subverting Codava nomenclature is vandalism and destruction of any community or groups identity will amount to war crime as per UN charter. Karnataka Govt. being the official custodian of Codava tribalism, instead of protecting us it systematically vandalized our identity & heritage markers.

It’s amazing how any human being will see his/her dreams in their respective mother tongue only .Even during joyous moments & traumatic conditions he/she expresses/exclaims in his mother tongue only. While in battlefield one exclaims his war cry in his mother tongue only. Even when seriously wounded in war he screams in his mother tongue only (Though he may know many languages, that doesn't matter. Mother tongue will spontaneously make him to speak and think about his mother which is unique & universally accepted unwritten divine policy) Codava being the martial tribe participated in innumerable wars in Coorg, National & Global arena he exclaimed War cry in his mother tongue Codava thakk only. Similarly in Devaatt Parmab tragic genocide on Codava tribe cunningly perpetrated by Tipu & French east India Company Army to eliminate entire Codava tribe, Codava martial tribes expressed trauma by screaming in Codava thakk only. For these reasons, on international mother tongue day we CNC offer floral tribute at Devaatt Parmab tragic massacre site besides Sathyagriha at Madikeri.

Dear Sir/Madam,

SUBJECT: Request to include Codava Quest for Geo - Political Autonomy in the Constitutional amendment Bill to be presented before the Parliament for assigning greater autonomy to 10 autonomous councils in the Sixth Schedule areas of North-East.

Please Note: CHAPTER 8: UNION STATE RELATION 8.23.1 OF CRC/ CONSTITUTION REVEIW COMMISSION REPORT.

The Union Cabinet has approved a Constitutional amendment to give greater Autonomy to 10 autonomous Councils in the Sixth Schedule areas of the North -East. Deepening autonomy is welcome as it provides local communities a greater say.

Encouraged by the news mentioned in the above subject, we take this opportunity to press the Govt. for assigning Geo –Political Autonomy to Codava territory i.e. Coorg aka Kodagu in Karnataka. Until the year 1956, Coorg the indivisible & traditional home land of Codava tribe was a ‘C’ type state of Indian Union. It was known as well administered, rich, content & happiest region in India and the subjects were being looked after very well by the Govt. Needless to add that Codava tribe was known for its chivalry, gallantry and are valiant, ready to sacrifice their life and spend every paisa earned for the development of this region.

Codava martial tribes are considered to be the minuscule micro minority group of tribe in the world. Our contribution to the World peace & National Sovereignty is unparalleled. The largest section of our tribe did participate in the Second World War (World War 2) with a desire to keep peace in the global arena & ultimately it led to Constitution of UNO through Atlantic declaration which became gateway for transformation of new civilized society and consideration of Universal human rights & Rights of Self-determination. After India attained

Independence, Codava tribes’ contribution for the sake of the country's development, peace, prosperity, integrity & extraordinary Sovereignty by fully involving for the national security by actively participating in the Armed forces is enormous.

But unfortunately the Governance of the State of Mysore, now Karnataka, has neglected us and carried out many unwanted & unexplainable modus operandi which forced us to flee from our cherished Homeland. In other words it definitely amounts to ethnic cleansing, expanding internal colonialism & forced exodus theory. Karnataka is ethnically diverse and were 1 or 2 Major communities are dominate the state to the exclusion of others where we Codava tribal people have been excluded from all democratic well fare state schemes and we have been marginalized, disrespected and ignored. By assigning autonomy we can expect the true equilibrium of socio-political and political cultural engineering.

We reiterate an inevitable fact the entire Officialdom do behave as though they are the occupational forces of old Mysore. The people of old Mysore area behave themselves to be the illegally empowered. Occupational force Lesser said the better they have even demonstrated themselves to be a force assigned with powers to snatch and seize all Codava folkloric rights, dress divine sites ,shrines, Cultural heritage etc. which is un Called for.

The entire Codava tribalism would be, Very thank full to you if you carry out our request. The proposed amendment to Article 280 and the Sixth Schedule of the Constitution will increase financial and executive powers of 10 autonomous District Councils in Meghalaya, Assam, Mizoram and Tripura. The Codava martial tribes in Codava territory are exclusively demonstrating the things what the 10 above mentioned autonomous regions do.

Coorg, the traditional Homeland of Codava tribe is strategically very significant on par with North-East. Hence the entire Codava tribe is very important to the nation. Unless the Geopolitical aspirations of Codava tribe is assigned with Autonomy status to safeguard the land, language, Cultural heritage, folkloric repositories, right of self- determination etc., we fear that it would be a great loss to the very security of the greater India.

Our request for assigning autonomy to Coorg has been conceded by Constitution Review commission (CRC) in the year 2002, headed by justice M. N. Venkatachalaiah, Eminent Jurists, Constitutional experts & Stalwarts like former Speaker of Lok Sabha P. A. Sangma, Dr. Sumitra Kulkarni, Justice Jeevan Reddy, Justice R. S. Sarkaria, former Secretary General of Lok Sabha Dr. Subhash C Kashyap, Justice Punnaiah, Editor of Statesman Irani, Former Attorney Generals M/s Soli Sorabji & K. Parasharan. The report submitted by the CRC gained its entry in the Book of Constitution under Centre State relation Under CHAPTER- 8 UNION STATE RELATION 8.23.1 OF CRC REPORT. Therefore we hopefully request you to do the needful to include CNC’s request (of autonomous status to Kodagu) in the proposed Amendment Bill to be presented before the ensuing Parliamentary session.

Thanking you

18. Rich Heritage of Codava tribal World & Folkloric culture of Codava tribalism should be included in the intangible cultural heritage list of UNESCO.

We further insist that the things has made out above shall be implemented. We believe that our demands as mentioned above are recognized at least at this hour.

Addenda: After the amalgamation of our cherished homeland in 1956, the then Part 'C' State of India, systematic ethnic cleansing carried out step by step & Kannada hegemonic policy imposed on Codavas tribe. First step of such evil design was changing the names of all Codava festivities besides changing the traditional Codava names of every village into Kannada. For example our prime festival Puthari which symbolizes the arrival of New rice to Codava households; Pudia+ari is Puthari ,now Puthari is Kannadified into Huthari. Hutha+ari - Hutha means snake’s nest/den. Totally vulgarized. Puthari is a sacred festival on par with Pongal of Tamil calendar & Bisaki of Sikhism calendar.

Let us see the Codava folkloric villages’ & Hamlets’ names, how systematically vulgarized into Kannada. Paka into Hakathur, Palanda into Halgunda, Payyada into Hysodlure, Nalnaad into Nalkunaadu, Botoli into Betoli, Thora into Thomara, Paleri into Haleri, Bonda into Bilugunda, Pattipole into Hattihole, Poramalenaad into Horamalenaad, Path into Hakathur, Permad into Hermadu, Path into Hathur, Buttangala into Bittangala, Podd into Hodduru, Balamberi into Balamuri, Bollarimad in to Bellarimadu, Kunjeri in to Kunjalageri, Peggala in to Heggala, Buttangala in to Bittangala, Pacchenad in to Hacchenadu, Pacchat in to Hacchinadu, Buttiyanda Okka in to Bittiyanda, Podd in to Hoddur, Pudikeri into Hudikeri, Buttyanda into Bittiyanda, Nuppadokka into Moovathoklu, Napadokka into Nalvathoklu / Napok into Napoklu, Aimbadokka into Aivathoklu, Arvadokka into Arvathoklu, Noorokkanaad into Noorokkalunaad & so on. Besides, festivals like Kailpoud into Kailmuhart, Cauveri Changrandhi into Cauveri Sankramana, Bodnamme into Bedu Habba, Eth Porata in to Ethu Herata, Bolakat in to Belakata, (can they dare to pronounce Pongal as Hongal? Bisaki as Visaki ?), Kakkada Padnett as Haati hadinentu. It shows their disrespect towards Codava heritage and identity. Even they repeatedly pronounce Codava in the all Governmental documents as Kodagaru in spite of Dr. Dwarakanath Commission report for rectification as Codava in Consideration of request made by CNC .This is the reflection of human rights violation by State Govt. through their occupational officialdom on Codava heritage.

Karnataka Govt. wants to rename all the ancient places of Kannada territory. For example Belgaum into Belagavi, Bangalur into Bengaluru, Mangalore into Mangaluru, Mysore into Mysuru, Gulbarga into Kalaburgi, Bijapura into Vijayapura. In fact no such names were in existence earlier. Yogi Adhithyanath Govt. in UP has replaced the name of Lucknow into Lakanvathi and Allahabad into Prayagraj. Even earlier Governments have changed and replaced many Historical place name for example Bombay into Mumbai, Calcutta into Kolkata, Madras into Chennai, Cochin into Kochi & Trivandrum into Thiruvananthapuram.

Names will attain its birth/creation/origin according to the historical, Cultural, Social, Political & Folkloric situation of the respective places. Around any ancient/ Historical nomenclature of the places, it will be surrounded by thousands of folkloric beliefs & myths. Hence changing, Vulgarizing & subverting Codava nomenclature is vandalism and destruction of any community or groups identity will amount to war crime as per UN charter. Karnataka Govt. being the official custodian of Codava tribalism, instead of protecting us it systematically vandalized our identity & heritage markers.

It’s amazing how any human being will see his/her dreams in their respective mother tongue only .Even during joyous moments & traumatic conditions he/she expresses/exclaims in his mother tongue only. While in battlefield one exclaims his war cry in his mother tongue only. Even when seriously wounded in war he screams in his mother tongue only (Though he may know many languages, that doesn't matter. Mother tongue will spontaneously make him to speak and think about his mother which is unique & universally accepted unwritten divine policy) Codava being the martial tribe participated in innumerable wars in Coorg, National & Global arena he exclaimed War cry in his mother tongue Codava Takk only. Similarly in Devaatt Parmab tragic genocide on Codava tribe cunningly perpetrated by Tipu & French east India Company Army to eliminate entire Codava tribe, Codava martial tribes expressed trauma by screaming in Codava Takk only. For these reasons, on international mother tongue day we CNC offer floral tribute at Devaatt Parmab tragic massacre site besides Sathyagriha at Madikeri.

Post Script : We are happy to announce that Codava Takk is the living spoken language of Codava race and has been identified as popular spoken languages among other 16 such languages in India. To quote formidable evidence better always go through MANORAMA YEAR BOOK 2014 Published from kottayam 686001- Kerala, India. Incidentally MANORAMA YEAR BOOK is the result of a joint venture of the week and MALAYALA MANORAMA. We are further happy to announce that such a thing is the direct consequence of CNC/ Codava National Council’s agitation successively during the past 26 years and now that such a thing has been identified by the people and intelligentsia of this Nation. The MANORAMA YEAR BOOK is the prime source of knowledge for preparatory exams to IAS & IFS interns. MANORAMA YEAR BOOK is the outcome of known intellectuals, Socio- political scientists, scholars and authoritative personages across the world. Enough if one goes through the contents that appeared in the MANORAMA YEAR BOOK 2014 and has repeated in the matter even in the year 201, 2016 & 2017 also as mentioned to prove our claims about the inclusion of Codava Language in the 8th schedule of our Constitution. It in fact is the best and formal certificate about the significance of Codava language. Only the thing that remains to be done is the Govt of India should recognize Codava Takk as a regular language and include the same in the 8th Schedule of our Constitution. A suggestion now comes fourth even though they said language had unique and independent character has been suppressed by the authorities throughout and now it has gained momentum on account of the relentless struggle towards such an end by our organization; i.e CNC / Codava National Council. No doubt true that there may be innumerable languages and each and every person certainly knows and talks many languages including his or her own mother Tongue, but strangely enough all individuals have dreams in their own mother Tongue. Hence our mother Tongue Codava Takk is paramount for us. This is enough to substantiate Codava demand for the inclusion of the Codava Takk in the 8th Schedule of our Constitution and also to be considered as one of the languages of UNO. It hurts us to inform you that we definitly have submitted innumerable Memorandums and applications touching the question of Codava Land Autonomous Region and the inclusion of Codava Takk in the 8th Schedule of our Constitution during the course of our struggle and we have courage to add that Codava Takk full fills all the necessary qualifications to be incorporated in the 8th schedule of our Constitution.

We have conducted Sathyagraha on the day of 21/02/2019 in the vicinity of the office of the Deputy Commissioner of Kodagu Madikeri-571201 to mark the World Mother Tongue Day. One must remember that a Mother Tongue takes prominence and becomes paramount and mother tongue stands first the entire world takes secondary position.

The popular 16 spoken languages enlisted here under

1.Angik 2.Awadhi. 3.Bhojpuri. 4.Bundeli. 5.Chhatisgarhi. 6.Hariyanavi. 7.Hindustani. 8.Kanauji. 9.Magadhi 10.Marwari. 11.Bhili. 12.Gondi. 13.Codava.14.Kutchi. 15.Tulu . 16.Mahi.

The 22 languages which are included in the 8th schedule of our Constitution are enlisted here under 1.Assamese. 2.Bangali. 3.Gujarathi. 4.Hindhi. 5.Kannada. 6.Kashmiri. 7.Malayalam. 8.Marathi. 9.Oriya. 10.Punjabi. 11.Sanskrit. 12.Tamil. 13.Telugu14.Urdhu. 15.Sindhi was added in 1962.

By the 71st Amendment to the Constitution, 16.konkani. 17.Manipuri. 18.Nepali were added to the list in 1992. In 2003, four more languages were added 19.Bodo. 20.Dogri. 21.Maithili. 22.Santhali(92nd Amendment). It may not be an out of place act on our part if we be permitted to inform you that no prier recommendations of the any of the Constituent states is neither required nor mandatory for the inclusion of any language; much less Codava Takk in the 8th schedule of our Constitution. To quote an example we drag this opportunity to remind you a fact that no prior recommendation was ever obtained from any states of Indian Union before the inclusion in the 8th schedule of above mentioned languages such an analogy should be followed in respect of Codava Takk for inclusion in the 8th Schedule of our Constitution.

We appreciate the attitude, conviction & vision of Shri B.K Hariprasad, The Hon’ble member of Rajya Sabha in order to save Codava Takk is proved while he moved a PVT member Bill (Constitution Amendment Bill 2016) in the parliament seeking the inclusion of Codava Takk in the 8th schedule annex to our Constitution & It has been tabled & Discussed in the August House, cutting across the party line all the respectable members of Rajya Sabha supported the Bill moved by Mr. B.K Hariprasad for the inclusion of Codava Takk in the 8th schedule of our Constitution, and on behalf of Govt MOS for Home Mr. Kiron Rijiju supported the move and he expressed the opinion that the Union Govt is willing to concede Codava Takk for the inclusion of 8th Schedule in the Constitution.

It is an unforgettable factor that the known linguist of South India rev. Bishop Caldwell even went to the extent of asserting Codava Takk to be the main mother source of the Pancha Dravida languages i.e Tulu, Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam & Kannada and affirms that Codava Takk is the base sources of all these languages. Even the Nationally acclaimed linguist Pro. Sitakant Mahapathra has recommended the inclusion of 38 languages in the 8th schedule of our Constitution and Codava Takk is the 19th in its list.

Demand for more languages for inclusion in the Eighth Schedule

At present, as per Ministry of Home Affairs,[7] there are demands for inclusion of 38 more languages in the Eighth Schedule to the Constitution. These are:

Angika
Banjara
Bazika
Bhojpuri
Bhoti
Bhotia
Bundelkhandi
Chhattisgarhi
Dhatki
English
Garhwali (Pahari)
Gondi
Gujjar/Gujjari
Ho
Kachachhi
Kamtapuri
Karbi
Khasi
Kodava (Coorgi)

Now a time certainly has reached to make a definitive arrangement to include Codava thak in the 8th schedule of our constitution as early as possible and in consonance with the things what we mentioned here under. To include Codava minority language i.e Codava thak in the Constitution and do all such things towards the things as are enlisted here under in the interest of justice, equity, equality and good morals.

Restarting of Ethnographic survey on CODAVA TRIBE — CNC thanks CM Kumara Swamy and Social Welfare Minister Priyank Kharge- N.U.Nachappa Codava President CNC.
Our legitimate Aspirations should be treated as rights and one should not beg for alms- Nachappa

07-01-2019

Karnataka Govt has ordered for restarting of Ethnographic Survey on Codava Tribals which was stalled halfway in the year 2016. Because of the repeated requests and representations made by CNC,Union Govt took cognizance of the subject. Under the direction of Union Govt, State Govt has ordered for the restarting of Ethnographic survey on Codava Tribe for which CNC is extending its heartfelt thanks to CM Kumara Swamy for his Codava friendly attitude. We also thank Mr. Priyanka Kharge, Minister for Social welfare for his concern. Our special thanks to our PM Sri Narendra Modi ji, Union Minister for Home Affairs Sri Rajnath Singh ji and Union Tribal Minister Jual Oram ji

a. For taking our subject acutely. We are sure that this time the survey will be completed in scientific way and the subject will reach parliament through our CM for enactment. If we are included in the schedule list of our Constitution, our land, language, and cultural heritage will be protected. Our tribalism, habitat, historical continuity will be statutorily ratified besides economic growth social cultural empowerment and political autonomy (Physical protection, financial security & political freedom and Codava geo-political stability).

b. Demanding & claiming for the inclusion of non-schedule Codava tribe in the schedule list of our Constitution is a democratic & legitimate right of Codava tribe.

c. Protecting Codava tribe statutorily is a Constitutional duty & National responsibility of the ruling class as well as of the major community of the State & Nation.

d. It is obligatory under article 51A (f) of our Constitution to preserve and protect the minority tribal group who are having distinctive culture. The majoritarian community who are helming the State craft should protect any given minority tribe who live under their dominion.

e. Codavas are the glorified tribal of this nation. Unless statutory protection accorded through the enactment of our Constitution is extended, Codava tribe cannot survive in the present competitive world.

f. Kodagu is the indivisible and traditional homeland of the miniscule micro-minority indigenous Codava Tribe.

To tell the whole world about the inhuman crimes against the Jews committed by Hitler by causing the genocide using the gas chambers between 1941 to 1945 and to give healing touch to the wounds of unfortunate Jewish people and also to herald the new idealism on the basis of the holocaust to build an idealistic society UN took the initiative to built the Holocaust museum & constituted the International holocaust remembrance alliance

g. CODAVAS ARE THE NATIVES OF CODAVA LAND LIKE HOW KASHMIRI PANDITHS ARE TO KASHMIR AND HISPANICS TO AMERICA.

h. CODAVAS HAVE THEIR CULTURAL ROOTS ONLY IN KODAGU. In recent past many people from other communities who have their cultural roots elsewhere have settled in Coorg in four phases, i.e., after 1633, the start of Lingayats rule; 1834, the advent of British rule; 1947, after Independence; 1956, after the merger of Part 'C' State which is the homeland of Codavas.

i. We Codava Tribal people must have the feeling that we are content, safe and protected under majoritarian dominion. On the contrary we feel unsecured, intimidated, marginalized, ignored and disrespected in this majoritarian ruling State. It is undemocratic and violation of human rights

j. We Codava Tribe Whenever we raised any demand for justice which is due from the Constitution, the majoritarian ruling class covertly, cunningly and shamelessly undermined the subject through others. They need to heed to our legitimate Constitutional demand.

k. The demand for autonomous Codava land and inclusion in the tribal list comes under the purview of international human rights covenants. As per UN charter any democratically elected Civilized Govts must protect the interests of any given minority tribe, whether ethnic, national, racial, linguistic, cultural group who are in minuscule number. UN has repeatedly ratified this subject time to time in various international conventions on human rights declarations and India is a signatory for the UN covenants on human rights. We Codava tribe are in edgy position & are in a vulnerable State of affairs politically, under the majoritarian ruling class. Hence Codava right is human right.

l. The Codava tribe must be officially documented in the Statecraft. Unless and until we are documented, we cannot aspire for any social engineering program and will not get entry in the welfare State theory and socio- economic empowerment envisaged by the Government.

m. As a rule of law, democratically elected civilized Governments do procure and posses official documents of all communities coming under their jurisdiction. We must understand that we are not in a colonial era or medieval era or under police State or communist State. Hence Codava tribe must be documented in the Statecraft officially. Only then we can authoritatively aspire for Constitutional protection. THE ETHNOGRAPHIC SURVEY ON CODAVA TRIBE WILL BE THE GATEWAY FOR THE INCLUSION OF CODAVA TRIBE IN THE SCHEDULE LIST OF OUR CONSTITUTION. LET US ALL JOIN IN THIS MISSION FOR SECURED, CONTENTED, BETTER TOMORROW.

n. We Codavas must feel a sense of secured atmosphere. The majoritarian community should create an atmosphere that subaltern Codava tribe are in their protective zone. That is the real beauty of democracy. India is a nation with largest democracy as well as having largest ethnic diversity in the whole world.

o.The recent catastrophic landslide disaster victims of 7 folkloric Codava Naads of North Western Coorg is fully comprised of poorest of poor Codava tribes who mirror the true tribalism defined by the Union Ministry of tribal affairs for establishing one’s claim for the inclusion in the Schedule list of our Constitution.

p. We Codava people in unison will extend our full support and co-operation besides participating in the ethnographic survey for a secured & better tomorrow. By supporting our cause, our CM should exhibit true Statesmanship. CNC will be ever grateful and extend its heartfelt gratitude to those who have supported this noble cause throughout, specially M/S Dr. Subramaniam Swamy World Renowned Economist & RajyaSabha M.P , Sri B K Hariprasad RajyaSabha M.P., Dr. C S Dwarakanath Former Chairman Karnataka backward class commission Chairman, Pro. Dr. Balvir Arora former Rector of JNU New Delhi and Renowned political Scientist, Mr. K G Bopaiah M.L.A. Virajpet, Sri Appachu Ranjan M.L.A Madikeri, Smt. Veena Achaiah M.L.C, Sri PrathapSimha M.P, Mr. Adagur Viswanath Ex M.P, Sri Jagadish Shetty National General Secretary (VHS) Virat Hindustan Sangam, Sri B.G.Mittu Chengappa, Senior State Congress Leader, Shri Mohan Chandran Nambiyar, State Congress Leader & Shri BrijeshKalappa, Advocate & Congress National Spokes Person and all CNC supporters.

CNC President Mr N. U. Nachappa Codava in a delegation met Tribal Research Institute (TRI) Director Dr.Basavana Gowda & H Girish. And Discussed about the modalities of ongoing (halfway stalled) Ethnographic Survey on Codava Tribe. Mr Nachappa Codava assured TRI Director that Codava tribe in Unision will participate and extend full Co operation for the ethnographic Survey. Dr. Basavana Gowda promised the delegation that TRI team will carry out the ethnographic Survey scientifically with a judicious approach.

The CNC delegation Comprised of M\ s Mookonda Dilip , Chambanda Janath, Areyada Girish, Apparanda Poovanna, & Apparanda Reena Poovanna.

Thanking you,

Establish Special Disaster Management Ministry to rehabilitate the displaced victims of the catastrophic landslide in the 7 Codava Naads in the North-western Coorg region

12.09.2018

In the recently occurred catastrophic landslide in the Harangi Reservoir catchment area of North-western Coorg region which was severely affected in 7 Codava Naads for which the displaced victims are on the streets, now they should be rehabilitated in a dignified and content manner in the very same place where they lived for generations.

The current District in charge Minister has the responsibility over the entire state and therefore cannot spend all his time on the rehabilitation program and so we require a Ministry exclusively for taking care of the landslide victims, the Ministry thus established needs to help permanently rehabilitate the victims and the Secretariat should be comprised of all departments and the entire team should only focus on the rehabilitation, since the tragedy is not a mere a calamity but an international disaster.

By projecting in the media that entire Coorg is affected is wrong, through that projection the real victims will be ignored and glossed over as crop loss and illegal riverbank encroaching is common phenomena and the government might try to call the entire thing a common phenomena and refuse to give as much help as necessary, and say that they have done enough for the common phenomena and wash their hands off it.

For example in such cases when there is damages due to minor floods of 1 lakh rupees the government just gives 5 thousand rupees and says that it is sufficient, and such a thing must not happen this time. For this we have to trifurcate the issue, which are, in order of importance, catastrophic landslide victims, crop losses, and flood affected illegal riverbank encroaching.

In the 20×30km radius 7 Codava Naads of North-western part of Coorg region which were severely affected and it is a real international disaster, if projected properly, we will get United Nations Disaster Management funds and other international disaster relief funds as well as help from Diaspora community for the real rehabilitation and genuine rebuilding programme, sadly many NGO's are making people sign over their properties to the forest department at the promise of new living place and living expenses and portraying it so that foreign organizations donate money and the NGO's keeping most of the donated money for themselves and barely helping the victims.

Big outside companies send their workers to the relief camps during heavy rainfall so that they don't have the responsibility to feed the workers

More than 5 thousand crores worth of relief funds that flowed in have been looted by officialdom and relief mafia and Rohingyas and Bangladeshi majority took shelter in the relief camp.

(The Outside companies and estates, particularly Balaji estate of Liquor Barren Adhikeshavalu and Mahalaxmi estate.)

The media has systematically projected that the catastrophic landslide affected Codava territory is comprised of rich planters and their labourers to the outside world when in reality the victims are hardworking poor Codava tribals who are having small holdings of land and they don't use labourers but instead use mutual help from all their neighbors. In real sense it is a Codava folkloric repository of Codava Tribal heritage.

The workers that have been sent to the relief camps pretend to be the landslide victims in front of the media This system known as "Muyyaal-Koodaal" This is a Codava folkloric tribal region, it is akin to Rabindranath Tagore's Shanthinikethana.

These Immigrant Workers possess ID proof of Coorg will get all benefits in the future in the name of rehabilitation, and they will be considered native displaced residents.

The relief funds and materials have not reached to all victims across the 7 Naads.

The Majority of the victims are not in the relief camp and they took shelter with their kith and kin who were working as security guards, hotel staff, and salespersons in Mysore and Bangalore.

Now that they are returning as the landslide and floods have stopped they have not received any essential materials from the relief camps as they have been embezzled by the relief mafia and WhatsApp mafia who pose as the victims and take the materials in coalition with the Black Market.

Now that they are returning as the landslide and floods have stopped they have not received any essential materials from the relief camps as they have been embezzled by the relief mafia and WhatsApp mafia who pose as the victims and take the materials in coalition with the Black Market.

The relief funds and materials that have been provided by the people of the entire country and the some parts of the world which was supposed to go to the landslide victims instead the funds went to the undeserving people who reside in Coorg and the materials went to the Black Market warehouse.

And in place of the new household materials like Cookers, Geysers, Blankets, Heaters, etc. which would have been enough for 2 years were taken by people who can afford to buy new ones and replaced by their old and worn out items from their homes.

One troublesome notion has been generated that in the name of relief fund donations people are opening bank accounts and advertising them as places to donate for the relief funds and keeping all the donations they get for themselves, there are more than one thousand such accounts and these need to be stopped by the government and confiscated and a high level investigation needs to take place to stop the fraud of relief funds and materials.

The victims desperately need Kerosene and Rice which they are not getting and instead going to the different panchayats. If you are not empathizing with the catastrophic landslide victims properly with the permanent rehabilitation programme you should leave it to us and separate the geopolitical boundary as UT status with autonomy and we will show the entire world that we will rehabilitate in a dignified manner within an year.

Not only that, out of the 14 districts in our neighbouring Kerala state 12 districts which are severely affected by the landslide and floods, we have the compassion, magnanimity, and political will to help them to rehabilitate and look after their well being if we attain Codavaland autonomy (The rehabilitation ministry needs to involve experts in the fields of revenue, survey, agriculture, coffee board and till the rehabilitation is complete they should not be involved in the parent department) Don't play dirty politics and give us false promises and don't manipulate with relief fund mafia and relief material mafia in the name of landslide disaster in the Codava region and be sober. We know that we are not safe and secure in your hegemonic suzerainty so if you really care about the well being of our future generations our fate will be protected and guaranteed through political self determination right with attaining our geopolitical goal. Now the relief fund and material has been distributed to undeserved persons & illegal immigrants across Coorg  and the landslide affected region in particular & real victims in general are being  ignored & marginalised  completely.

Some visual media houses are exaggerating & advertising that entire Coorg is 100 percent effected by severe flood in the caption KODAGU AKSHARASHA JALA SAMADHI AAGIDE and attracting foreign relief funds  which is not reaching the real  disaster victims .Actually  only 12 percent of Coorg , 20 ×30 kms radius arround the Harangi Reservior catchment area comprising of 7 Naads of North Western Coorg(three ZP constituencies) is affected. Hence this fact & statistics has to be projected in the media so that the real victims get the benefit for their permanent rehabilitation.

Misappropriation of money  by some people in the name  of landslide victims relief fund account and involving in relief materials mafia racket is akin to pillage  in war torn region.( More than 1000 accounts are operating across the  country by individuals organizations and institutions on Kodagu relief fund.)

Photos of land slide victims attested

CNC's confidence building program of catastrophic landslide victims and the affected areas in all the 7 Codava Naads of North-western region for consoling and motivating the people for rehabilitation, in its first part CNC President N U Nachappa Codava visited  Surlabinaad on 11th September, 2018.

Nachappa Codava addressed a large gathering of displaced victims at Surlabinaad and Muttlu village and the victims unanimously resolved to stay in the very same place where they had lived for millennia and they vowed to follow CNC for their well being.

And on 21st of September the displaced victims under the leadership of CNC will conduct a Human Chain.

Thanking you,


Press Conference – Press release
To Whom so ever it may concern

Date : 25-01-2019

CNC observes International holocaust rememberance day in the vicinity of DC’s office Madikeri on 27 Jan 2019 at 10.30AM pressurising for the inclusion of Devaatt paramb tragic genocide in the international holocaust list of UNO.

Tipu colluded with the French East India Company to form an allied force whose military was under the leadership of French General Lolly and Nawab of Karnool Runmust Khan Devaatt paramb tragic genocide is the most traumatic chapter in the history of Codava tribalism .This cold blooded murder occurred on 12 December 1785 by brutal barbarian Tipu .This heinous genocide did not attract the notice of the world community because of our illiteracy. But Jews holocaust reached the global arena and is included in the international holocaust list of UNO only because of Jews High literary back ground since the inception of Biblical religion. Now we want justice for Codava genocide . CNC’s demands regarding this topic are as follows.

1) Devaatt Paramb tragic genocide should be included in the international holocaust remembrance list of UNO.

2) International holocaust remembrance Museum should be established jointly funded by Govt of France , Govt of India & UNO.

3) French Govt should apologize Codava tribal world for participating in this genocide colluding with Tipu 234 years back.

4) International Standard of genocide memorial monument should be established at Devaattparamb Codava genocide site

5) Indian Parliament Should Condemn & denigrate the Devaattparmb tragic genocide and expose the hidden monster face of Tipu to the entire world.

6) Kush+Allanagar is the name shake of Tipu Should be removed and either rename it as Frazerpet or name it as War hero Gallant Commander Kullettira Ponnanna

who fought and chased the invading Army of Hyder & Tipu @ Baicahnahalli & Mullusoge.

To tell the whole world about the inhuman crimes against the Jews committed by Hitler by causing the genocide using the gas chambers between 1941 to 1945 and to give healing touch to the wounds of unfortunate Jewish people and also to herald the new idealism on the basis of the holocaust to build an idealistic society UN took the initiative to built the Holocaust museum & constituted the International holocaust remembrance alliance

One must console and exhibit the repentance and express solace to the descendants of Devaatt Paramb genocide victims by considering the above mentioned demands judiciously. Instead the Government shamelessly celebrates Tipu Jayanthi in Codavaland/Coorg and rubs salt in the wounds of Codava martial tribe. Which is un called for.

Thanking you,

22th Annualpublic KailpoudNamme celebrations by CNC, and took out a vehicular procession in the thoroughfare of Madikeri city on 01st September 2017 with religious fervor

It is unanimously resolved to continue the agitation initiated by CNC to get all the demands until each of them are full filled and CNC has unearthed many more significant information evidencing the resources of Codava heritage. Added to it we are in the right process of work and make a definitive comparative study of all such ancient heritage tribalism their struggle liberation movements of different Ethno nationals across the world and collect all information what the Constitutions of various nations have provided to different indigenous ethnological self determination struggles.

The Editor,

Dear Sirs,

Sub: 22nd Annual Public KailPoudnammei.eCodavaAyudhaPooja celebrations by Codava National Council / CNC at 10.30 a.m on 1 Sep 2017 at Middle ground Mandh starting – followed by vehicular procession through the main thorough fare of Madikeri City and it reaches to Capital Village- Declare Public holiday for KailPoudNamme: ALL ARE INVITED.

The intended participants are herby requested to bring your vehicles & weapons for the mass Pooja purpose. We further request you to bring as many vehicles and weapons facilitating to prove our solidarity on that occasion.

Codavas meet in a congregation at middle ground Mandh in Madikeri at about 10.30 a.m in the morning on 1 sep 2017. Preparatory to hold a mass Ayudha Pooja with relegious fervor – Traditional Codava Emblem Thokk -OdiKatthi and Peeche KatthiPooja along with the agro implements will be offered ceremonial Pooja with zest and enthusiasm followed by a vehicular procession through main thorough fare of Madikeri which ultimately would reach Capitol Village where the connected celebrations will be held. Oblations (Meedhi) CodavaKaronas (Ancestors) will be offered with ritualistic fervor. This 22nd time when we are celebrating public KailPoudNamme, one can expect Codava Cultural programs such as DudikottuPaat, KaronaPaat, Pariyakali, ThengeBodi (Coconut Shooting) followed by tasty Codava Cuisine.

This in fact is a part and parcel of our demand for the establishment of Codava Land UT status, Autonomous region, tribal status, inclusion of CodavaThakk in the 8th Schedule of our Constitution and protection for our land, customary personal laws and Folk Legal systems and allied subjects.

The KailPoud celebrations intended only to exhibit Codava unbreakable relationship with Mother Soil and our Martial Trait. Such celebrations shall continue forever and ever after. This in reality is the actual AyudhaPooja of CodavaTribe.

The very important thing what is done in the KailPoud name celebrations in every Clannish Codava family is that teenage boys in the respective family will be religiously blessed by family elders under the Nellakki-Nadubade on that auspicious day assigning him the familyresponsibility and he will be religiously taught by the elders to look after, run and maintain the family, he takes oath to that effect thereafter the boy or boys will be ceremoniously taken to Mandh: the another sanctum – sanctorum of Codava Race where he will be initiated into the warrior ship first he will be given sword called OdiKathi and asked him to take rounds around the tree: either Banyan Tree or People Tree in the Mandh and he would be administered Oath to the effect that he would rescue defend and take care of people and the village whenever disasters and threat occurs. Immediately thereafter he would be asked to prove his Velour by Slitting the Plantain Stumps planted around the mandh symbolically. In actual fact such a ritual is the first touching towards younger boy’s velour Courage and Gallantry.

Even though Codavas never or seldom use Weapons or Arms after the onset of Monsoon since we would be engaged in Agricultural Operation. After cleaning the Weapon and Agro implements every Codava worships the arms and Agro Implements on the day of KailPoud.

Declare Public holiday for KailPoudNamme:

KailPoudNamme celebrations already has been starts at SurlabiNaad every year on 17-08-2017 followed by celebrations at PoramaleNaad on 22 Aug and at Muthunaad on 24 and Bengnaad on 27 such celebrations will follow at Naalnaad on 28 Aug followed by the one at Kadiyathnaad on 31 Aug every year. The public KailPoud celebrations by CNC will be on 1 Sep every year and the usual celebrations started at the time of British rule as usual will be observed in the District on 3September and the Diaspora Codavas celebratesKailPoud whole month of September. KailPoudNamme is the main Codava festivity connected with mother nature and agricultural operation and the entire Codava lot observes with Keen enthusiasm since it is most auspicious until the state of Kodagu became merged with the state of Mysore now Karnataka, the then CoorgGovt used to declare 10 days public holidays. General public use to participate in the traditional festivities by holding holiday festive sale in the manner of Kailpoud “Chathe”.

Even it is very essential that holidays should be declared effectively from 17th of August until 3 Sep, both days inclusive, we desire that at least five days of public holidays should be announced for KailPoudNamme.

One very important factor is that our children studying elsewhere and those Codavas who are employed beyond Kodagu/Coorg would get an opportunity to enjoy the KailPoudNamme and all things connected with mother soil, culture and heritage during the festival, especially if at least 7 days of all days is granted in other words all these members will get an opportunity to travel back their homeland and stay with their respective families if only long holyday’s are declared. A day’sholyday will not permit them to travel back.

Therefore CNC insist the Govt of Karnataka to declare general holidays for KailPoud celebrations on 31st August, 1, 2, 3 & 4 September for the purpose. All Codavas are requested to participate.

The intended participants are herby requested to bring your vehicles & weapons for the mass Pooja purpose underneath the Baniyan tree at middle ground Mandh Madikeri. We further request you to bring as many vehicles and weapons facilitating to prove our solidarity on that occasion.

Memorandum

Dear Sirs,

Sub: 22nd Annual Public Kail Poud namme i.e Codava Ayudha Pooja celebrations by Codava National Council / CNC on 1 Sep 2017 at Middle ground Mandh – followed by vehicular procession through the main thorough fare of Madikeri City and it reaches to Capital Village- Declare Public holiday for Kail Poud Namme:

Codavas meet in a congregation at middle ground Mandh in Madikeri at about 10.30 clock in the morning on 1 sep 2017. Preparatory to hold a mass Ayudha Pooja with relegious fervor – Traditional Codava Emblem Thokk - Odi Katthi and Peeche Katthi Pooja along with the agro implements will be offered ceremonial Pooja with zest and enthusiasm followed by a vehicular procession through main thorough fare of Madikeri which ultimately would reach Capitol Village where the connected celebrations will be held.

This 22nd time when we are celebrating public Kail Poud Namme, one can expect Codava Cultural programs such as Dudikottu Paat, Karona Paat, Pariyakali, Thenge Bodi (Coconut Shooting) followed by tasty Codava Cuisine.

This in fact is a part and parcel of our demand for the establishment of Codava Land UT status, Autonomous region, tribal status, inclusion of Codava Thakk in the 8th Schedule of our Constitution and protection for our land, customary personal laws and Folk Legal systems under Articles 371 and overall Constitution Guarantee for our Economic and Political Freedom, Exclusive Codava nominated representation in the Parliament and Assembly on the lines of Anglo Indians should be given under article 331 of our Constitution, Devatt Paramb massacre – a tragic human holocaust in the mankind – We Insist for National Memorial / Monument on the lines of Jallianwala Bagh in memory of Amritsar Massacre and this tragedy should be included in the International Holocaust remembrance list of UNO, Under Indian Arms act 1959 section 3 & 4 for carry and posses fire arms by Codavas and Jamma holders should be continued and protected forever without any hindrance, Demand for the implementation of the recommendations made by Constitution review Commission of India on the insistence of Codava National Council for the creation of Coorg Development Board under article 371 of (Please note: Chapter 8 Union State relation 8.23.1 of CRC report) as has been done in relation to touching Hyderabad Karnataka Region - appropriate amendment to the Constitution is desirable at once, Codava Race should be globally recognized on par with Jews, Parsis, Sindhi, Yezidi, Kurdi, Baloch and Pastun etc, Micro Minority Ethno cultural Codava tribal race should be included in the intangible cultural heritage list of UNESCO, Demand for permanent deployment of NIA (National Investigating Agency) and RA&W agencies, and this demand is recently incorporated along with the other 12 demands. Our demand No. 12 mentioned above pertains to the expected threat from global radical Islamic Terrorism and transformation of Kodagu into Psychopathic ISIS ‘Ghazwa –E- Hind’ Green Corridor and Naxal Maoist Red corridor should be curtailed, by permanently deploying NIA and RA&W agencies in Kodagu (Coorg) should such a thing be carried out, Please be assured that the residence here will be able to breathe fearlessly and the interest of National security and oneness will be protected forever. The above mentioned 13 demands certainly do require immediate consideration, demanding to grant the same ‘Legal rights’ - ‘Living Entity having the status of Legal Person’ to life line River Cauvery. promulgate an Ordinance declaring the sacred River of Vedic period river Cauvery the real ancestor and God Mother of Indigenous Codava tribe on the lines with New Zealand’s ‘Whanganui’ river the ancestor of Maori tribes of that land (in India, Ganga, Yemuna & Narmada) to be a ‘’Living Entity’’ with the status of ‘’Legal person’’, Which in reality exhibit Codava Tribal Trait, we pray our Karonas to expedite the formation of Codava Land with UT status this year only.

The Kail Poud celebrations intended only to exhibit Codava unbreakable relationship with Mother Soil and our Martial Trait. Such celebrations shall continue forever and ever after.

21st year of public KakkadaPadnett Celebrations by Codava National Council held on 3rd August, 2017 (Thursday) at 10:30 hrs in Capitol Village Madikeri- This is the 21st year of public Kakkada Padnett celebrations

03-08-2017

Under the aegis of CNC the 21st year of public Kakkada Padnett celebrations held on Thursday the 3rd August, 2017 and it was reverberating and a memorable one. Incidentally, the public celebration of Kakkada Padnett is the invention of Codava Karona’s (i.e. Codava ancestors) and ceremonious touch being championed by Codava National Council. The main purpose of Kakkada Padnett is signifying the unbreakable Codava bondage with mother earth and in reality that is our one of the folkloric religious rituals. On 18th of Kakkada, Madthopp (one particular leaf/called Madthopp) will gather 18 varieties of herbal medicinal value and we religiously consume Maddpayasa, Maddputt and Maddkool prepared out of Madthopp stock during the peak period of paddy transplantation.

Codavas being warriors/martial Tribe, basically have imbibed the necessity of agriculture from time immemorial and in reality, it is our unbreakable ritualistic act embedded in mother soil. With an intention of educating younger generation about the importance and necessity of observing this ritual, our connection with mother nature and basically agriculture, added to it acts as a unifying factor within Codavas from person to person. The prime importance is to let them understand the rich legacy of Codava culture. One other motive is to herald the very purpose of Kakkada Padnett to the world community and our motive is to educate our younger generation with the background of preservation of our cultural identity as enshrined in the article 51 (f) of the Constitution which in other words which safeguards the importance of the preservation of our composite cultural heritage and identity.

On 3rd August, 2017 the Kakkada Padnett (18th) Day, under the aegis of CNC held a public Naatinadpa ceremony/paddy transplantation at 1030 in the morning accompanied by Dudikottpaat in the paddy fields at capitol village, after paddy transplantation all the participants served with KakkadaKoli, Maddputt, Maddpayasa and other Codava cuisine. The Kakkada ceremony preceded by seeking blessi ngs of Guru Karonas.

The entire program and process gives input and ingredients to motivate, inspire and strengthen our struggle for Codava land Union Territory, autonomy, Constitutional guarantee for Codava Tribe, Inclusion of Codava Thakk in the 8th Schedule of our Constitution, Codava Tribe should be include in the schedule list of our Constitution besides Codava minority tribe should be included in the Intangible Cultural Heritage list of UNESCO.

It naturally was a ceremonious blessing occasion. All the Codava & Codavathi participants under the leadership Mr. N.U Nachappa Codava have heartily & unanimously resolved to congratulate Mr. B.K Hariprasad Member of Parliament for having moved a Pvt. Member Bill in the parliament for the inclusion of Codava Thakk in the 8th schedule of our Constitution and on the insistence of CNC the irreprisible voice of Codava World and also congratulated Mr. Kiron Rijiju Union MOS for Home for having committed the inclusion of Codava Thakk in the 8th schedule, besides CNC congratulated Shri K.G Bopaiah MLA Virajpet for having raised calling attention notice in the floor of the legislative assemble with regard to the continuation of ongoing Ethnographic Survey for the inclusion of Codava Tribe in the schedule list of our Constitution.

Memorandum

For the Kind Publication

The dangers of Constituting (retaining) Karnataka State Flag and assign a Separate Autonomous Codava land or Separate Statehood with UT status for Coorg in order to suppress the evil designs and seditious act of Karnataka Govt.

Undoubtedly this representation is against the decision of the Govt of Karnataka to have a separate Flag for the State and without any doubt such a decision is most anomalous and opposed to our federal constitution and all democratic behavior.

Let India continue as a powerful nation but definitely not an imperial nation- we also like to see the heterogeneous inclusive Karnataka state with a dream to include and foster to all the 5 regions particularly Coorg and its indigenous aboriginal Codava ethnic tribe as mentioned and certainly not a colonial Karnataka.

The Govt which so far has failed to take into consideration of our move to secure a separate Autonomous Codava Land to Coorg and a separate State of Kodagu/Coorg with UT Status. In reality Kodagu (Coorg) is not the only such deserving place to be recognized as UT status there are other regions also and Dakshina Kannada i.e the Tulu Nad (Mangalore), Urdu speaking Bidar, Gulbarga & Raichur of Hyderabad Karnataka region, Marati speaking Mumbai Karnataka region i.e Belgaum, Dharwad and Bijapur and predominantly Konkani speaking Karwar. As until 1956 when State reorganization was carried out the above mentioned regions have been illegally made part and parcels of the State of Old Mysore now nomenclature having been changed as the State of Karnataka.

Until 1956 there was a State of Mysore with 8 Districts namely Shimoga, Chikamagalur, Hassan, Chitradurga, Tumkur, Bangalore, Mysore and Kolar. Without the above mentioned 5 different Ethnocultural Geo Political regions there would not have been a State of Karnataka. In reality local regional language of Coorg / Kodagu is Codava Thakk and so Tulu in South Canara (Mangalore) Konkani in Karwar, Marati in Mumbai Karnataka and Urdu in Hyderabad Karnataka. Supressing all these factors the successive Governments in Karnataka have projected a total false claim stating that the State of Karnataka to be a sole homogenous territory and as such a unitary setup. But in reality Karnataka is a heterogeneous State with multilingual, multicultural, multiethnic, socio geographical fabric.

The Govt of Karnataka always suppressed the demand and aspirations of the people of 5 regions mentioned above, especially Codavas of Coorg and all their demands touching their language rights, land rights, cultural rights, Ethno tribalism identity rights, Political rights, Autonomy and internal self determination rights etc…..etc.. Whenever Codava Tribes made similar demand and agitating through the Constitutional methodology for their legitimate claim and branded all over their claim to be Anti National, Regionalism, Parochialism, propagating splitist theory, treason and sedition. Added to it all Codava demands have been treated as low class quality.

What otherwise was a small State of Mysore after amalgamation of 5 different Ethno linguistic and cultural regions the State of Karnataka could become a reality, of course with a solitary idea of the ruling class to suppress and eliminate the above mentioned regions including Coorg their distinctive and entirely different mode of Cultural and politico historical background with our own geo-political aspirations.

Coming to the subject matter proper i.e to have a separate Flag for State of Karnataka we would like to inform you that the present and successive ruling class of this “Abnormal State” would someday designate the Police Force with a separate nomenclature identical to that of “Indian Armed Forces”. The DGP would someday be called as “Chief of Army Staff” (COAS) of Karnataka and Lessers said the Better about the enigma that follows in course of time. Such a plan definitely is designed to follow things what all have transpired in the State of Jammu & Kashmir, which has separate Constitution and Flag the funniest part is the life span of Kashmir Assembly is 6 years. The head of the State (The Governor of Kashmir) is identified as Sardr – E – Riyasath the Head of the Govt (The Chief Minister / Prime Minister) as Wazeer – E – Azam.

We may expect Karnataka cabinet and assembly to project a wish to knit a separate Constitution for Karnataka and address the Head of the State to be as Rajpramukh or Diwan (The Governor) and Head of the Govt to be (The CM) as Raja Prathinidhi. Unless the Union Govt takes a definitive and stern action against the seditious wishes of Karnataka Govt at once India will see the emergence of Kingdoms, Raja’s and feudal lords flourish through Secessionism as did such things existed during Pre Independence Era.

Let not the Karnataka Govt follow the plans and programs envisaged in the Rajmannar Commission Report passed in the Tamilnadu Assembly by DMK Govt. The Anandpur Saheb resolution of Punjab dreamt up by Shiromani Akalidal in 1973. The great Autonomy charter of West Bengal passed in West Bengal Assembly in 1960’s. The Kashmir Autonomy charter passed in the J&K Assembly by Dr. Faruq Abdullah Govt in 2002. In 1990’s the Narsimha Rao Govt offered Political self rule package to undermine the extremist ULFA which was fighting for Separate Assam Nation. All the above mentioned factors do force anyone to imagine the theme designed by the ruling class of respective States coupled with the Reports, Resolutions and Charters enshrined there in except external affairs (Foreign Affairs), Currency, Defense, Postal and Communication and all other powers is expected to rest with respective States which will be addressed as full pledged self ruled Autonomous States / Quasi Independent States. In other words the entire theme is designed to leading towards for the making of Independent small Nations as did Mikhail Gorbachew did with separating the until then the USSR to be 12 Independent Nation States on Ethnic lines that existed during previous 70 years under the philosophy of “Perestroika” [political reform] and “Glasnost” economic reform imagined by Gorbacheu. In other words the Govt of Karnataka the Kannada speaking Generality, intellectuals, left oriented writers dream of having the Govt with plans identical to that of “Perestroika” of former soviet Russian Republic which ultimately would lead to the emergence of separate “Kannada Nation”.

The ironical factor may be traced from the days of chief minister ship of Devegowda in 1995 who propagated the creation of separate nation of Karnataka[threatened to split from the Indian union] should injustice be done to Karnataka on account of the distribution of Cauvery waters.

The painful factor is that almost all politicians except perhaps of 5 regions mentioned above are dreaming of carving of a separate Kannada Nation from the Indian union. All such politicians have expressed their designs when Cauvery dispute arose during the year 2016. The retention of a separate state flag for Karnataka definitely speaks volumes about the dreams of Kannada Nation and which will become the bed rock for separate nation hood.

The best and only way should be done in order to curb illegitimate plans and evil sedicious conspiracy of Karnataka to attain a nation hood is to create the 5 regions in general and particularly Coorg to be the autonomous region with UT status.

Jaitely committee appointed by the then NDA Govt headed by A B Vajpayee is known to have has already recommended for the trifurcation of Kashmir in to 3 states or UT. One should know that Vajpayee Govt has carried out this mission in order to suppress the desire for Kashmir nationhood once for all

We request that such a thing should be carried out in relation to save the integrity of India and call a stop for secessionism attitude of Karnataka, divide Karnataka into 5 regions and declare 5 Statehood Status or 5 UT’s. Let India continue as a powerful nation but definitely not an imperial nation- we also like to see the heterogeneous inclusive Karnataka state with a dream to include and foster to all the 5 regions particularly Coorg and its indigenous aboriginal Codava ethnic tribe as mentioned and certainly not a colonial Karnataka.

Codavas always are loyal to Indian state and its sovereignty its flowering constitution and our national flag which understood to be paramount to us, but certainly not a Separate Karnataka state Flag or Separate Karnataka Nation.

Should demand for greater Autonomy or Nationhood for Karnataka conferred as demanded by Govt of Karnataka they are certain to demolish all the aspirations of Kodagu [Coorg] in general Codava tribe in particular so that entire Kodagu and its traditional ethnicity becomes a forgotten thing for ever. In order to save the very entity of Coorg and its Codava tribalism it should be made Separate Union Territory of Indian union and Codava land autonomous region.

Memorandum

Dear Sir,

Sub: Demand to carve out Union Territory of Coorg/Kodagu and assigning Codava Land Autonomy on par with the proposed Separate State of Darjeeling Gorkha land – A Memorandum followed by a Sathyagraha by CNC Volunteers on 14-07-2017 in the vicinity of DC’s Office, Madikeri.

1. Before mentioning about the desirability of considering our pressure to include Union Territory status for Coorg in the Articles 2&3 and Codava land Autonomous region under 6th Schedule of our inimitable Constitution it would be more appropriate if we mention about the likelihood of formation of separate Gorkha Land State in the Indian Union.

2. Gorkhas a Martial Race understandably mortgaged to the defense of India on par with Codava Martial tribes. Darjeeling Gorkha land essentially is a hilly region strategically like Codava region of Coorg and like Codavas having birth right to hold “Gun” Gorkhas have unbroken right to hold “Kukri”. Like Gorkhas Codava Tribes are Patriotic people, Gorkhas have participated in the 1st& 2nd World War, Similarly Codava Tribes also participated and fought World 1st& World War 2nd Added to it both Kodagu / Coorg and Darjeeling hills are strategically significant strips and each as its own Politico - Historical and Socio - Cultural background.

3. If the treaty between British rulers, Nepal Kingdom and Gorkha Army entered during 18th century and with that the struggle for separate Gorkha land State is known to have bloomed and started then alone, The Anglo-Nepalese War (1814–16), also known as the Gorkha War, was fought between the Kingdom of Nepal (present-day Nepal) and the East India Company as a result of border disputes and ambitious expansionism of both the belligerent parties. The war ended with the signing of the Treaty of Sugauli in 1816, which ceded around a third of Nepal's territory to the British.

4. The British were the invading forces, while the Nepalese maintained a defensive position. The British attacked in two successive waves of invasion. It was the most expensive war waged during the governorship of Lord Moira.

5. Starting from Upanishad period until India became free Country and the year between 1952 to 1956 Coorg was a separate “C” type State of Indian Union with a proper Govt with unicameral legislature existed until then when it became subservient to the State of Mysore now Karnataka. Without any doubt Kodagu used to be a Separate Nation, Independent Nation State, Country, Kingdom, and British India Province and was a self-respected “C” type State as until 1956 under the Constitution of Independent India with the Geo – Political aspiration every born Codava was intact, formidable and nurtured. Both Gorkhas and Codava Tribes socially, culturally, linguistically, politically, ethnically, martially with historical background are alike throughout.

6. If the State of West Bengal exploited Gorkhas and their territory throughout in all aspects, the State of Karnataka has exploited Kodagu and Codava Tribes throughout with much vengeance. Added to it the State of Karnataka considers Coorg to be their conquered territory, Codava tribes to be their slavish subjects and has been in the process of de-populating Codava tribes and re - populate with outside vote banks, Outside Money bags and big Business tycoons, deal Makers, Fixers, Negotiators, Developers, Realtors & Underworld Dons with a solitary intention of expanding their internal – colonialism and has attempted to de-cipher (de-legitimize) Codava tribalism totally.

7. With a dream of re attaining separate Codava Tribal Existence this Organization i.e CNC took its birth some 27 years ago and we are struggling for the establishment of Union Territory for Coorg (Old nomenclature being Coorg C State) and Codava Land Autonomous region and assigning Constitutional guarantee for Codava Minority Tribe and their Land, Language, Cultural Heritage, economic and Political Freedom.

8. If Gorkhas took arms in order to regain their old stature during 1980’s under the leadership of late Subhash Gishing, we are doing the job peacefully (through Constitutional agitation) throughout. Unfortunately our peaceful mannerism is being considered as our weakness.

9. Late Shri Rajeev Gandhi Constituted Darjeeling Gorkha Hill Council (DGHC) in 1988 in consideration of Gorkhas political struggle from the very beginning and it existed for a period of 20 years. Thereafter the then Union Govt assured the assigning of Autonomous Status to Gorkhas under the 6th Schedule of our Constitution.

10. A Rajasthani non Gorkha Jaswanth Singh got himself elected as BJP Mp from Darjeeling in the year 2008 by assuring Gorkhas of assigning Separate Gorkhas land State. With that unrest started in Darjeeling hills and when it became too very much uncontrollable, the then Union Home Minister Mr. P Chidambaram intervened and formulated a pact Constituting the Gorkha land Territorial Council in the year 2012-13 not satisfied with such a thing yet another non Gorkha BJP leader of Bihar a Sardarji S S Ahluwalia got himself elected as Member of Parliament in 2014 from Darjeeling on the assurance trying to establish Gorkha land State.

11. After that Political unrest has started in the region once again under the leadership of GJM Mr. Bhimal Gurung motivated by S S Ahluwalia and expected moral support from the Hon’ble Union Home Minister Mr. Rajanth Singh and MOS for Home Mr. Kiron Rijiju. The reigning Union Govt is already willing to concede the demand of Gorkhas since the said gentleman belong to the ruling party.

12. Now coming back to our demand (Codava land demand) we would like to re-iterate an undeniable fact that the elected representative of our region belongs to the party helping Gorkha land struggle and the mannerism of both Gorkhas and Codavas are much same like. We only suggest that past experience should not repeat when in the recent history the demand for formation of separate Codavaland UT defeated two times earlier.

13. When Bilaspur which was a “C” type state just like Coorg and Chotanagpur were attaining Separate Statehood nomenclature as Chhattisgarh substituted to Bilaspur and Jharkhand replacing the name Chotanagpur In the year 2000 even though Codava movement was vociferous and prominent. The chances of Coorg re gaining Separate State became a thorough failure on account of the mischief caused by the ruling Govt ,

14. Similarly Telangna and Hyderabad Karnataka regions were under the rule of the Hyderabad Nizam as until the day when Kodagu (Coorg) “C” State became merged with state of Vishala Mysore now Karnataka. If Telangana become merged with State of Vishalandhra Hyderabad Karnataka region comprising of Bidar, Gulbarga & Raichur Districts became merged with State of Karnataka. The political struggle continued until such a day when Separate Statehood to Telangana was given, and Hyderabad region was given Statutory guarantee under article 371 (J) of our Constitution in 2017 after having considering the step motherly treatment both the regions have suffered under residual States. Even though the people of Andhra did object to the carving out of Telangana and ended up in passing resolution rejecting the claim in the Andhra assembly. Yet Separate Statehood was assigned to Telangana. Even though Hyderabad Karnataka region is not a Separate state the region has acquired special reservation Status in the field of education employment in the State and Union and also attained special financial package as per article 371[j] of the Constitution.[Hyderabad Karnataka people used to show their anger by burning Kannada flag on every Nov 1 Rajyotsava day.)

15. One pain full behavior of the then soulless Chief Minister of Coorg State and the notorious Chief Commissioner (Col. Daya Singh Bedi) duo have conspired with Mysore leaders then and allowed the only existed utopian happiest State then of the country Coorg became merged rather dumped with Mysore, now Karnataka. The said persons understandably sold their souls only with an under taking by the Union Govt of making the first amongst them becoming Railway Minister. Both of them have amassed extensive landed properties under the cost of compromising Codava dignity pride and self-respect, the first one in Coorg and the second one in Sakaleshpur. Unfortunately the departed evil soul [Prethaathma] of the first one has continued to trouble Codava Tribes and natives even now and presumably is causing the blockade against all our legitimate demand and struggle.

16. Therefore we are conducting a peaceful sathyagraha in the vicinity of DC’s office Coorg Madikeri on 14 July 2017 and conduct Jathas throughout Coorg from the month of September 2017 for the purpose. We have also formulated a plan to cause New Delhi chalo sathyagraha as “Invasion day” on 1 Nov 2017 and we have also plans to hold “27th Codava National Day” on 24 Nov 2017. Besides we will also celebrates 21 Annual Kakkada Padnett on 3 August 2017 and Annual 22nd public kail poud celebrations on 1st September 2017 as usual and also on 09th August CNC will observe world Indigenous People’s Day. Each and every function slated to be held as mentioned above we will re - iterate all our claims to assign UT (Union Territory) Status to Coorg & Autonomous Codava land along with Gorkhaland. We request all the native residents of Coorg to join hands with the noble cause. In order to help us seeking the making of Codavaland UT and autonomy and thereby help us in securing permanent and durable Political Solution.

If the union Govt can concur with the demand of shared Sovereignty with Secessionist underground Naga outfits [NSCN] why not concede Codava legitimate demands; at once?

Dear Sir,

Sub: Demand to carve out Union Territory of Coorg/Kodagu and assigning Codava Land Autonomy on par with the proposed Separate State of Gorkha land – A Memorandum followed by a Sathyagraha by CNC Volunteers on 14-07-2017 in the vicinity of DC’s Office, Madikeri.

1. Before mentioning about the desirability of considering our pressure to include Union Territory status for Coorg in the Articles 2&3 and Codava land Autonomous region under 6th Schedule of our inimitable Constitution it would be more appropriate if we mention about the likelihood of formation of separate Gorkha Land State in the Indian Union.

2. Gorkhas a Martial Race understandably mortgaged to the defense of India on par with Codava Martial tribes. Darjeeling Gorkha land essentially is a hilly region strategically like Codava region of Coorg and like Codavas having birth right to hold “Gun” Gorkhas have unbroken right to hold “Kukri”. Like Gorkhas Codava Tribes are Patriotic people, Gorkhas have participated in the 1st & 2nd World War, Similarly Codava Tribes also participated and fought World 1st & World War 2nd Added to it both Kodagu / Coorg and Darjeeling hills are strategically significant strips and each as its own Politico - Historical and Socio - Cultural background.

A Sathyagraha by Codava Tribes Men under Aegis of Codava National Council - CNC volunteers demanding to grant the same ‘Legal rights as human being’ - ‘Living Entity having the status of Legal Person’ to life line River Cauvery

Memorandum

A Sathyagraha by Codava Tribes Men under Aegis of Codava National Council - CNC volunteers demanding to grant the same ‘Legal rights as human being’ - ‘Living Entity having the status of Legal Person’ to life line River Cauvery on 1st June 2017 in the vicinity of Deputy Commissioner’s Office, Kodagu, Madkeri – 571201,time 10.30 am.

Dear Sir,

Sub: CNC demands & insist the Hon’ble President of India to promulgate an Ordinance declaring the sacred River Cauvery the real ancestor and God Mother of Indigenous Codava tribe on the lines with New Zealand’s ‘Whanganui’ river the ancestor of Maori tribes of that land, Ganga, Yemuna & Narmada to be a ‘’Living Entity’’ with the status of ‘’Legal person’’. The Union Govt headed by Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi ji and Union Home Minister Shri Raj Nath Singh ji should bring Central Legislation in that regard as the Govt ‘s of Utharkhand and Madhya Pradesh have done in respect of Holy Rivers of Vedic period Ganga, Yemuna and Narmada :

It is an un deniable fact that our Holy River Cauvery is as old as Mother Earth and the Human Civilisation that flourished near around the areas where the same flows have systematically defied it, ever since human beings started living and showing social behaviour. As regards Codava Tribe River Cauvery is perhaps the only “Devatha [Angele]” they believe in. If this is the thing touching life line River Cauvery here are other 6[six] such Rivers flowing across in “Bharatha Varsha [India]” and they are Ganga, Yemuna, Narnada, Sarswathi, Godavari, Sindhu & 7 [seven] in total and they include River Cauvery have been considered to be Holy[Sacred]Rivers from Upanishad & Vedic periods. All the Holy scriptures particularly Ramayana, Mahabharatha, Bhagavadgeetha, Tamil Legendary Scripture Thirukoral & of course Codava Folkloric Literary Piece “Pattolepalame ”, Cauvery Vaibhava & Skandapurana do definitely mention about all the said Rivers including River Cauvery and they have become integral part and parcel of the Philosophy and Eminence of Hinduism propagate. Simply said River Cauvery is one of the ‘life line’Rivers in India. Mythology documents that River Cauvery has Dakshina Gange. River Cauvery took its birth at Thalacauvery [i.e. The Dakshinskashi] in the Brahmagiri mountainous terrain of Western Ghats in Coorg [The Erst while ‘C’ State of Coorg]and flows through mid part of Coorg, Mysore[i.e. Southern Karnataka] Tamil Nadu, Pondicherry and finally it mingles with bay of Bengal near Poomphar. The actual estimated length of River Cauvery is 1311 km.

Speaking about the great Sage Agasthya is both a Spiritual body and also an Civil Engineer expert in Irrigation. In spiritual imagination Agasthya created River Cauvery and in factual matter he has taken Cauvery even in to Tamil Nadu occurring on both sides of Coorg and Tamil Nadu is an amazing thing and main intention is to make available equal waters to the people.

River Cauvery or Kavery is one of the only prominent Rivers in the Southern India that flows along the States of Karnataka [Earlier say up to 1956. Record shows that it was flowing across State of Coorg after amalgamation of Erst while State of Coorg into Karnataka] and Tamil Nadu. It is often termed as the Dakshinganga which means Ganga of the South. The Holy River finds place in the Tamil Literature and Codava & Kannada writings.

Throughout the past, the Banks of the River Cauvery attracted great Writers, Poets, Philosophers and Saints who contributed greatly towards the Cultural ethos and Spiritual Wisdom of India.

Mythology records that the Heroes of Ramayana (Rama, Seetha & Laxman) and Mahabharat (Pandavas) to avoid rigour Himalayan Ice of Northern India travelled to Southern Part of India that too Cauvery basin for their ‘Vanavasa & Ajnathvasa’ (Exile) and spent their valuable time. Mythology makes available many proofs for their having camped in Coorg. Strictly speaking Cauvery minimized the thrust of people in reality.

One solitary example what we can quote now is that the Govt. of New Zealand has treated and recognised ‘Whanganui’ river to be the ‘living entity having the status of legal person’. (on 16th March 2017) Taken into consideration, 140 year old relentless negotiations & struggle of ‘Maori’ tribes of New Zealand to be the actual descendents of the ‘Whanganui’ river has been granted the same legal rights as a human being. Without any doubt indigenous minority Codava tribe have revered river Cauvery all along as their God Mother and considered as their ancestor.

In reality the decision of the New Zealand Govt. to accord such status to ‘Whanganui’ river is incidentally the first of its nature in the worlds recorded history. Indigenous Codava tribe has considered river Cauvery to be our general ancestor from the very beginning and we insist our govt. to follow suit.

Lifeline River Cauvery is a ‘’Living Legend’’ by herself [itself] and She (it) is a ‘Visual Scripture’ besides being a ‘Great Epic’ and a ‘Spiritual God Mother’. We do not find any necessity to prove its Mythological existence or importance since we are at it, and it doesn’t require any documentary movies or other factual evidences in order to prove its legitimacy from time immemorial say from the period of Upanishads. In other words, documents or documentary movies are felt needed only to prove the Physically Non-Existent and never known Rivers. River Saraswathi is not Physically existing visual living River, even though Upanishad and Vedic narratives and other documents mentioned about the same. The people who are trying to prove the existence of River Cauvery with the aid of documentary movies is simply a money making business rocket by certain deal makers, fixers & negotiator Mafias, seditious conspirators, Anti Nationals, Foreign funded NGO Mafias and it has to be checked forever.

It doesn’t require any media advertisement since more than a century there has been an Inter-State Water Distribution Dispute Litigation touching the River Cauvery and every living human being across the World knows about River Cauvery and every day one may read about the River Cauvery in news papers.

Only recently the Utharkhand High Court has declared Ganga and Yamuna Rivers and its tributaries as ‘’Living Entities’’ having the status of a ‘’Legal Person ‘’. The Govt of Utharkhand even has taken a further step by promulgating a regular law in that respect, not satisfied with such a thing the Utharkhand High Court has even promulgated a direction in general to the effect that Govt of Utharkhand would act as the ‘’Legal Parents’’ of the all Holy Rivers that flows in India. The Court also said they have been tasked to work as the human face to protect, conserve and preserve them and their tributaries. The Supreme Court has already accepted Rivers as ‘’Living Entities”.

Encouraged by such a thing the Union Minister for Home Affairs Mr. Rajnath Singh has (“Bring a Bill to give a Living Entity status to River Narmada”, Mr. Rajnath Singh said)even directed the Madhya Pradesh Govt to assign ‘’Living Entity Legal Person’’ status to Holy River Narmada, the Madhya Pradesh Assembly on 3 May 2017 passed a resolution granting ‘’Living Entity’’ status to River Narmada which will enable the Water body to have the same ‘’Legal Rights as a Person’’. In effect anyone who acts in such a way he has to misuse the waters, and harm the Rivers after having attained ‘’Living Entity’’ status becomes punishable crime/offence on par with rape, dacoit and murder included such an enactment do necessarily protect such Rivers and they continue to be help full to human society in the future also.

It is a known fact that a good majority of bad people have vulgarised the eminence of River Cauvery by throwing all dirty things there to. People even have gone to the extent of allowing the dirt from all Septic Tanks, the waste from Butcher Shops. A good number of bad people with demonic intentions have even grabbed the occasion by indulging in Sand, Mining Mafia and Timber Mafia. Years ago we used to watch small & tiny islands existing on River Cauvery and we even have noticed huge jungle groves which prevented people from seeing things from either sides there used to be jungle growth farming and its canopy covering River margin everywhere in the River Bank. Now we find structures illegally put up. We used to drink raw Cauvery water even during 1970s while we went to schools, but things have gone just opposite just now and it resembles dirty ‘’River Kengery” gutter in Bangalore just now and even has become the ‘epicentre of all diseases’. The area all around River Cauvery from its birth place Tala Cauvery/Bhagamandala via Kottamudi-Siddapur Kushalnagar & Kudige[Coorg boarder] has become the ‘Head Office of all kinds of viral diseases’. For example the people living in Napok are during the past 4[four] months have experienced the disease ‘’Jaundice’’ on account of the dirty waters in River which polluted the entire River Cauvery basin in the area. The rapacious group have raped and destroyed the very perennial springs of water resources of tributaries of River Cauvery by raising large structures of devilish resorts belonged to Hawala racketeers in collusion with ‘D’ company and ISIS radical jihadist & Black Marketers, Big Business Tycoons network.

Unless the Human generality pressurised the Govts to promulgate protective legal measures in respect of River Cauvery at once all the concerned be they are Ministers, Elected Representatives, Officialdom, Power Brokers, Regular Pimps, Realtors, Land Mafias, Human Traffickers Mining, Sand and Timber Mafias, Radical Terrorists, Fixers, Negotiators, Deal Makers, Money Lenders and such other unholy viscous circle destroy all the tributaries of River Cauvery and River Cauvery also. These unethical rascals have caused unrealistic ruination by extracting underground water resources and Karnataka Water Resources Ministry also is interested and intended to carry out such things in the name of ‘Pathalagange’ Evil project all by itself which is unwarranted. We fear that our Govt and all such ones will authorise Multinational Companies to manage the River Cauvery and its Rivulet Tributaries under a false notion (Cunning of the reason) of protecting River Cauvery.

In fact Cauvery is like our Mother and has made available all things whichever is essential for our living and we deem it necessary to protect the ‘Motherhood of River Cauvery’ and its tributaries by all such methods whatever law permits.

Therefore, we reiterate and insist the Hon’ble President of India to Promulgate an Ordinance declaring the Sacred River Cauvery [On the lines with Ganga, Yemuna, Narmada] to be a ‘’Living Entity’’ with the status of ‘’Legal Person’’ at once and the Union Govt headed by Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi ji and Union Home Minister Shri Raj Nath Singh ji should bring Central Legislation in that regard as the Govt ‘s of Utharkhand and Madhya Pradesh have done in respect of Holy Rivers of Vedic period Ganga, Yemuna and Narmada.

In the interest of our Nation in General and Codava Tribalism in particular. This Holy life line River Cauvery should flow until such a time when Sun & Moon Exists.

New Zealand river granted same legal rights as human being

After 140 years of negotiation, Māori tribe wins recognition for Whanganui river, meaning it must be treated as a living entity Prince Harry paddled down the Whanganui river during a visit to New Zealand in 2015. Photograph: Chris Jackson/Getty Images In a world-first a New Zealand river has been granted the same legal rights as a human being.

The local Māori tribe of Whanganui in the North Island has fought for the recognition of their river – the third-largest in New Zealand – as an ancestor for 140 years.

On Wednesday, hundreds of tribal representatives wept with joy when their bid to have their kin awarded legal status as a living entity was passed into law.

“The reason we have taken this approach is because we consider the river an ancestor and always have,” said Gerrard Albert, the lead negotiator for the Whanganui iwi [tribe].

“We have fought to find an approximation in law so that all others can understand that from our perspective treating the river as a living entity is the correct way to approach it, as in indivisible whole, instead of the traditional model for the last 100 years of treating it from a perspective of ownership and management.”

The new status of the river means if someone abused or harmed it the law now sees no differentiation between harming the tribe or harming the river because they are one and the same.

Chris Finlayson, the minister for the treaty of Waitangi negotiations, said the decision brought the longest-running litigation in New Zealand’s history to an end. “Te Awa Tupua will have its own legal identity with all the corresponding rights, duties and liabilities of a legal person,” said Finlayson in a statement.

“The approach of granting legal personality to a river is unique ... it responds to the view of the iwi of the Whanganui river which has long recognised Te Awa Tupua through its traditions, customs and practice.”

Two guardians will be appointed to act on behalf of the Whanganui river, one from the crown and one from the Whanganui iwi.

Albert said all Māori tribes regarded themselves as part of the universe, at one with and equal to the mountains, the rivers and the seas.

The new law now honoured and reflected their worldview, he said, and could set a precedent for other Māori tribes in New Zealand to follow in Whanganui’s footsteps.

“We can trace our genealogy to the origins of the universe,” said Albert. “And therefore rather than us being masters of the natural world, we are part of it. We want to live like that as our starting point. And that is not an anti-development, or anti-economic use of the river but to begin with the view that it is a living being, and then consider its future from that central belief.”

Financial redress of NZ$80m is included in the settlement, as well as an additional NZ$1m contribution towards establishing the legal framework for the river.

The observance of Tippu death anniversary by Maoist groups and ISIS Terror elements and it is certainly a conspiracy to expand Maoist red corridor and ISIS Ghazwa-E-Hind Green corridor-a subversive seditious philosophy in Coorg- such evil designs should be kept under check and stringent action should be taken at once – Surveillance by Union Home Ministry and NIA & RAW should be taken an alarm – Insisted for:

The irrepressible anti social element; anti national also, A K Subbaiah during the past couple of years has done camouflaged of pro-down trodden and pro-minority garb. Some two years ago he raised a hue and cry pressing the celebration touching Tippu Jayanthi in Kodagu. Even though the people here are opposing Tippu. (We can recall that The Tyrant Tippu along with his notorious French east India company allied forces under the Military leadership of French Genaral Lolly & Psychopathic Nawab of Karnool Ranmusth Khan cunningly massacred & Butchered thousands of innocent Codava Tribes men and their Family at “Devatt paramb” in a cold blood in 13th December 1785, Codava Tribesmen cannot and can ever -never forget that tragedy ) Even though the need of defying such ones is not necessary in this District besides being unwarranted.

The much talked about the behaviour of this man took its shape at Coorg some two years ago. Where he instigated anti-social and anti-national elements particularly international Islamic radical ISIS terrorists elements under the pre-text of Tippu Jayanthi. His unbound vocabulary provoked the mob to cause murder of two innocents and also cause assaulted police personal. The timely action of the police could only avoid and prevent such other lawless activities expected to be caused by the ISIS terrorists infiltrated elements of A K Subbaiah.

Again with a solitary intention of creating total anarchy and lawlessness and anti-social seditious subversive activities in Kodagu(Coorg). In order to pave way to Maoists Naxal elements and radical jihadists groups and strengthen such anti-national forces who have lurked in various strategic parts of Coorg jungles like deadly snakes had organized a congregation in the name of Tippu Sulthans’s death anniversary on 4th May 2017 at Srirangapatna where entire mob gathered around him (AK Subbaiah) shouted seditious slogans.

Earlier , during the past 8 to 9 months this serpentine elements had organized such admittedly unethical congregations at Diddalli , Palemadu and Cheriayaparamb only in order to re-implement is Anti-national activities by supporting the promotion of Maoist Naxal red corridor and ISIS radical Islamic jihadists Ghazwa-E-Hind Khorasan Khaliphat green corridor.

As It is generally known that M/S A K Subbaiah , D S Nirvanappa, Sirimane Nagaraj, Noor Sridhar, Gowri Lankesh , P C Assanar, Amin Mohisin, K R Vidyadhar and Nakshatrika Manu Shenoy are the actual propagators of total unrest subversive philosophy being propagated by A K Subbaiah and entire group wants to take deep roots in this region by Maoist and ISIS terrorists under the guise of Tippu death anniversary and Tippu jayanthi.

The prime purpose of holding Tippu death anniversary on 4th May 2017 at Srirangapatna is intended to gain a permanent foothold once again in the Coorg District and also to use it as spring board and trump card to further radicalize Coorg.

Whenever such groups hold secret meetings the organizers propagate only anti-national seditious theory and slogans in support of Maoism and ISIS. Unfortunately hostile countries, particularly Pakistan’s intelligence service ISI, are financing these groups and helping them flourish. This Financial channel of flows such funds should be unearthed and blocked.

With a solitary idea of causing unprecedented lawlessness, hooliganism and disaster to Coorg during the next Tippu Jayanti celebration and we can recall the anarchy that Mr. Subbaiah has caused during the 2015 Tippu Jayanti and Tippu Death Anniversary on 4th May 2017 is the actual grounds for the bad omen, one may expect for the entire Coorg.

The authorities concerned should take serious note about the activities of A K Subbaiah and his above mentioned serpents. Better always implement the undertaking made by the Honourable Union Home Minister Mr Rajnath Singh on 8th May 2017 in the conference of Chief Ministers of Naxal infested States at New Delhi touching the flow of funds from foreign countries to these Naxals and other terrorist outfits should be carried out in Coorg also at once .The Honourable Home Minister must extend and implement his plans and determination to curb and eliminate such terrorist activities has declared in the said conference at once.

Memorandum

Dear Sir,

Incorporate 8th schedule of Indian Constitution with Codava Thakk and make it a formidable Law on the basis of the Private Member Bill moved and tabled by Mr. B.K Hariprasad MP – RS in the floor of the Parliament at once on the lines as was done in connection with 22 other languages of our Country – Initiate Constitutional Mechanism for amending the statute – request for

Drawing your kind attention to the Constitution Amendment Bill 2016 the Constitution (Amendment) Bill, 2016 (amendment of the Eighth Schedule) & The Constitution (Amendment) Bill, 2016 (insertion of new article 338B) Private member Bill moved by Mr. B.K Hariprasad. Seeking the inclusion of Codava Thakk in the 8th schedule of our Constitution moved, tabled & debated by Shri B.K Hariprasad MP.RS and duly supported by Shri Basavaraj Patel Sedum MP.RS in the floor of the Rajya Sabha (Parliament) on 07 April 2017.

It may not be an out of place act on our part if we inform you that all the members present at the time in the Parliament house in session have silently concurred with the subject. Understandably subject in hand i.e Codava Thakk is most ancient and living spoken language of Codava Tribesmen with rich folkloric heritage background.

Codava Thakk is the naturally grown mother tongue of Codava tribe and the Codava cultural heritage having bloomed within the active sphere of River Cauvery the lifeline River of South India and one of the 7 holiest Indian Rivers of Vedic period.

Codava contributions to the Nation building and protection of boundaries of our country has been incomparable. The Codava language is very essential to protect and flourish Codava Tribalism.

As such we request you to be good enough to see that the Private Member Bill (The Constitution Amendment Bill 2016) touching Codava Thakk moved and tabled by B.K Hariprasad on the floor of Parliament is passed and becomes legislation.

The thing was imagined, coined, contemplated and vehemently advocated by CNC/Codava National Council, the irrepressible voice of Codava tribe during the past 27 years which in real sense has become the life breathe of every living Codava tribe which became manifested through the inimitable Statesmen Mr. B.K Hariprasad tabling a Private Member Bill on the floor of the Parliament.

Therefore we request you to be good enough to do the things in order to gain the entry of Codava Thakk into the 8th schedule of Indian Constitution as you did in respect of 22 such other languages successfully.

We request you to be good enough to carry out the needed Constitutional Mechanism so that Codava Thakk gains permanent entry into the statute Book.

PS: Without any recrimination we take this opportunity to remind you an undeniable fact that Govt need not seek other formal evidence in order to substantiate our claim for inclusion of Codava Thakk in the 8th schedule of our Constitution. Added to it the govt need not contemplate formality and presenting any Bill touching the inclusion of Codava Thakk in the 8th Schedule since the most domineering and respectable Parliamentarian Mr. B.K Hariprasad has already tabled a Private Member Bill touching the subject and an elaborate discussion has already been done. In reality we do not have any Political Lobby who would support us achieve our demand and we firmly believe that Shri B.K Hariprasad has done it after having studied the necessity of such a thing. We cannot expect any other parliamentarian having similar sense, risk and responsibility has was proved by B.K Hariprasad.


we demand and insist the Hon’ble President of India to promulgate an Ordinance declaring the sacred River Cauvery

Dear Sir,

Memorandum

Sub: we demand and insist the Hon’ble President of India to promulgate an Ordinance declaring the sacred River Cauvery [on the lines with Ganga ,Yemuna, Narmada] to be a ‘’Living Entity’’ with the status of ‘’Legal person’’ at once and the Union Govt headed by Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi ji and Union Home Minister Shri Raj Nath Singh ji should bring Central Legislation in that regard as the Govt ‘s of Utharkhand and Madhya Pradesh have done in respect of Holy Rivers of Vedic period Ganga, Yemuna and Narmada.

It is an un deniable fact that our holy River Cauvery is as old as mother earth and the human civilisation that flourished near around the areas where the same flows have systematically defied it, ever since human beings started living and showing social behaviour. As regards Codava tribe River Cauvery is perhaps the only “Devatha [angele]” they believe in. If this is the thing touching life line River Cauvery here are other 6[six] such Rivers flowing across in “Bharatha varsha [India]” and they are Ganga, Yemuna, Narnada, Sarswathi, Godavari, and Sindhu & 7 [seven] in total and they include River Cauvery have been considered to be Holy[Sacred]Rivers from Upanishad & Vedic periods. all the Holy scriptures particularly Ramayan, Mahabharath, Bhagavadgeetha, Tamil Legendary Scripture Thirukoral & of course Codava Folkloric Literary Piece “Pattolepalame ” & Cauvery Vaibhava, Skandapurana do definitely mention about all the said Rivers including River Cauvery and they have become integral part and parcel of the philosophy and eminence of Hinduism propagate. Simply said River Cauvery is one of the life line rivers in India. Mythology documents that River Cauvery has Dakshina Gange. River Cauvery took its birth at Thalacauvery[the Dakshinskashi] in the Brahmagiri mountainous terrain of Western Ghats in Coorg[the erst while ‘C’ state of Coorg]and flows through mid part of Coorg, Mysore[southern Karnataka] Tamil Nadu, Pondicherry and finally it mingles with bay of Bengal near Poomphar. The actual estimated length of River Cauvery 1311 km.

Speaking about the great Sage Agasthya is both a spiritual body and also an engineer expert in irrigation. In spiritual imagination Agasthya created River Cauvery and in factual matter he has taken Cauvery even in to Tamil Nadu occurring on both sides of Coorg and Tamil Nadu is an amazing thing and main intention is to make available equal waters to the people.

River Cauvery or Kavery is one of the only prominent Rivers in the Southern India that flows along the states of Karnataka [earlier say up to 1956. Record shows that it was flowing across State of Coorg after amalgamation of erst while State of Coorg into Karnataka] and Tamil Nadu. It is often termed as the Dakshinganga which means Ganga of the South. The Holy River finds place in the Tamil Literature and Codava and Kannada writings. Throughout the past, the Banks of the River Cauvery attracted great Writers, Poets, Philosophers and Saints who contributed greatly towards the Cultural ethos and Spiritual Wisdom of India.

Mythology records that the heroes of Ramayana (Seetha, Rama & Laxman) and Mahabharat (Pandavas) to avoid rigour Himalayan Ice of Northern India travelled to Southern Part of India that too Cauvery base for their Vanavasa (Exile) & Ajnathvasa and spent their valuable time. Mythology makes available many proves for their having camped in Coorg. Strictly speaking Cauvery minimized the thrust of people in reality.

Lifeline River Cauvery is a ‘’living Legend’’ by herself [it self] and She(it) is a visual scripture besides being a great, epic and a spiritual God Mother. We do not find any necessity to prove its Mythological existence or importance since we are at it and it doesn’t require any documentary movies or other factual evidences in order to prove its legitimacy from time immemorial say from the period of Upanishads. In other words, documents or documentary movies are felt needed only to prove the physically non-existent and never known Rivers. River Saraswathi is not Physically existing visual living River even though Upanishad and Vedic narratives and other documents mentioned about the same. The people who are trying to prove the existence of River Cauvery with the aid of documentary movies is simply a money making business by certain deal making and fixer Mafias and it has to be checked forever.

It doesn’t require any media advertisement since more than a century there has been an Inter-State water distribution dispute litigation touching the River Cauvery and every living human being across the World knows about River Cauvery and every day one may read about the River Cauvery in news papers. Only recently the Utharkhand High Court has declared Ganga and Yemuna Rivers and its tributaries as ‘’living entities’’ having the status of a ‘’legal person ‘’.The Govt of Utharkhand even has taken a further step by promulgating a regular law in that respect, not satisfied with such a thing the Utharkhand High Court has even promulgated a direction in general to the effect that govt of Utharkhand would act as the ‘’legal parent’’ of the all Holy Rivers that flow in India. The Court also said they have been tasked to work as the human face to protect, conserve and preserve them and their tributaries. The Supreme Court has already accepted Rivers as ‘’Living Entities”.

Encouraged by such a thing the Union Home Minister Mr. Rajnath Singh has (“Bring a Bill to give a living entity status to River Narmada”, Mr. Rajnath Singh said)even directed the Madhya Pradesh Govt to assign ‘’living entity legal person’’ status to Holy River Narmada, the Madhya Pradesh assembly on 3 May 2017 passed a resolution granting ‘’living entity’’ status to river Narmada which will enable the water body to have the same ‘’legal rights as a person’’. in effect anyone who acts in such a way he has to misuse the waters, and harm the Rivers after having attained ‘’living entity’’ status becomes punishable crime/offence on par with rape, dacoit and murder included such an enactment do necessarily protect such Rivers and they continue to be help full to human society in the future also.

It is a known fact that a good majority of bad people have vulgarised the eminence of River Cauvery by throwing all dirty things there to. People even have gone to the extent of allowing the dirt from all septic tanks, the waste from butcher shops .A good number of bad people with demonic intentions have even grabbed the occasion by indulging in sand & mining mafia and timber mafia years ago. We used to watch small & tiny islands existing on River Cauvery and we even have noticed huge jungle groves which prevented people from seeing things from either sides there used to be jungle growth farming and its canopy covering River margin everywhere in the River bank. Now we find structures illegally put up. We used to drink raw Cauvery water even during 1970s while we went to schools, but things have gone just opposite just now and it resembles dirty ‘’River Kengery” gutter in Bangalore just now and even has become the epicentre of all diseases. The area all around River Cauvery from its birth place Thala Cauvery/Bhagamandala via Kottamudi -Siddapur Kushalnagar& Kudige[Coorg boarder] has become the head office of all kinds of viral diseases. For example the people living in Napok are during the past 4[four] months have experienced the disease ‘’Jaundice’’ on account of the dirty waters in River which polluted the entire River Cauvery basin in the area. The rapacious group have raped and destroyed the very perennial springs of water resources of tributaries of River Cauvery by raising large structures of devilish resorts belonged to Hawala racketeers in collusion with D company and ISIS radical jihadist network.

Unless the human generality pressurised the Govts to promulgate protective legal measures in respect of River Cauvery at once all the concerned be they are Ministers, Elected Representatives, Officialdom, Power Brokers, Regular Pimps, Realtors, Land Mafias , Human Traffickers mining , sand and Timber Mafias, Radical Terrorists, Fixers, Negotiators, Deal Makers, Money Lenders and such other unholy viscous circle destroy all the tributaries of River Cauvery and river Cauvery also. These unethical rascals have caused unrealistic ruination by extracting underground water resources and Karnataka Water Resources Ministry also is interested and intended to carry out such things all by itself which is unwarranted. We fear that our Govt and all such ones will authorise multinational companies to manage the River Cauvery and rivulet tributaries under a false notion (cunning of the reason) of protecting River Cauvery.

In fact Cauvery is like our Mother and has made available all things whichever is essential for our living and we deem it necessary to protect the Motherhood of River Cauvery and its tributaries by all such methods whatever law permits.

Therefore, we reiterate and insist the Hon’ble President of India to promulgate an Ordinance declaring the sacred River Cauvery [on the lines with Ganga ,Yemuna, Narmada] to be a ‘’living entity’’ with the status of ‘’legal person’’ at once and the Union Govt headed by Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi ji and Union Home Minister Shri Raj Nath Singh ji should bring Central Legislation in that regard as the Govt ‘s of Utharkhand and Madhya Pradesh have done in respect of Holy Rivers of Vedic period Ganga, Yemuna and Narmada.

In the interest of our Nation in General and Codava Tribalism in particular. This Holy life line River Cauvery should flow until such a time when Sun and Moon exists.


The inevitable Sathyagraha by CNC to pressurize the Govt of Karnataka (GOK) to re-start & complete the Ethnographic survey operation about Codava Tribalsim

Dear Sir,

For the Kind Publication

03-05-2017

We have decided to call off what planned to be an indefinite Sathyagraha in the vicinity of the old DC’s office Madikeri having started from 01-05-2017 re-iterating our pressures for the Govt of Karnataka to re start the “Ethnographic Survey” operation about Codava Tribalism wrongfully stopped said to be by the oral instructions of the Hon’ble Chief Minister. The Survey operation was started as directed by the Union Govt in order to include minuscule Micro Minority Codava Tribe in the Schedule List under Articles 340 & 342 of Indian Constitution. Consequent upon the assurance to re start the Ethnographic survey as desired by us announced by Shri K.G Bopaiah MLA & Former Speaker Karnataka Legislative Assembly. The gentleman has also talked to the Principal Secretary of the Social Welfare Department Govt of Karnataka in our presence & hearing this day. Added to it he has assured us that he would raise the point on the floor of the assembly once again in the ensuing session. He further undertook to get the survey done after the next general elections should the incumbent Govt failed to do the same just now and the emergence of new Govt.

We re- iterate that we would call off the Sathyagraha temporarily this day in the presence of Shri K.G Bopaiah and should such a thing needs to be done before the expire of 2 months hence from this day we have decided to hold such Sathyagraha besides conduct Padayathra within the length and breadth Kodagu after such a time. We thank for Mr. K.G Bopaiah for having graced here this day.

Sub: Incorporate Codava Tribe in the Schedule list under Articles 340 & 342 of Indian Constitution -

The inevitable Sathyagraha by CNC to pressurize the Govt of Karnataka (GOK) to re-start & complete the Ethnographic survey operation about Codava Tribalsim. – Sathyagraha starts on 01-05-2017 in the vicinity of DC’s Office, Madikeri – Indefinite Sathyagraha will be continued.

Even though the Union Govt of India (GOI) has taken cognizance of the plea made by CNC and felt the necessity of including Codava tribe in the schedule list of our Constitution and directed the Govt of Karnataka (GOK) to hold and conduct an “Ethnographic Survey” about Codava tribe and in furtherance of such a direction the Social Welfare Ministry of Karnataka Govt entrusted the matter to Mysore Tribal Research Institute. No doubt true that the said institute did start work with usual fervor on 16-11-2016 and did its work to some extent until 16-12-2016.

When certain insane elements with the Anti Social help of such other Criminals and seditious conspirators with the ulterior motive got the matter stopped for nothing on the oral instructions of the Hon’ble Chief Minister. On the basis of the pressure and perseverance by CNC i.e Codava National Council our MLA Mr. K.G Bopaiah did his job true to the best of his ability by writing a request letter to the Hon’ble Chief Minister besides raising a calling attention notice in the floor of the Karnataka Legislative Assembly on 14-03-2017 for re-starting the “Ethnographic Survey” operation abruptly stopped by the Tribal Research Institute for nothing.

Even though the Hon’ble CM has addressed a reply to the letter sent by our MLA Shri K.G Bopaiah and undertaken to give effect to such a move, and Concerned Social Welfare Minister personally had undertaken in the floor of the Assembly to do the job when our elected representative moved a calling attention notice, nothing positive and formidable result has come forward this long. We do not know the actual reason behind such a deliberate negligence by negating our legitimate claim.

PS: It is a pity that the Govt and all the concerned organs of the administration are soulless machines, blind, deaf, and dumb and lack sensitiveness to consider Codava demands. Only with a solitary idea of awakening the entire organs of Govt we are sitting in a Sathyagraha and it may continue when all the concerned open their eyes, ear and mouth with expansive sensitiveness.

In reality the behavior of Govt of Karnataka is in violation of Codava Ethos and virtually it did become a reckless onslaught on the life breathe of Codava Tribe as well as their Constitutional rights and legitimate claims in its entirety.

As such we have no other go except to pressurize our demands by holding peaceful Sathyagrahas in the vicinity of the office of the Deputy commissioner (DC) Kodagu, Madikeri starting from 01-05-2017.

Dear Sir,

Memorandum& Complaint

Sub: Request to fix the Maoist Goondas under Prevention of Terrorism Activities Act (POTA) & National Security Act (NSA) – who have assaulted and Terrorised Police Force at Palemadu in Coorg on 22-04-2017 which is nothing sort of a Chhattisgarh like incident that happened on 24-04-2017 – in the interest of well being of Coorg and National Security & Sovereignty – a request for.

Despite our having cautioned our State Govt against the self styled fake Adivasi unrest in Diddalli Forest their home well in Advance the Govt deliberately ignored and has failed to do the things in accordance with our timely alarm. But instead our left lenient Govt in order to help the intended Maoist & ISIS intruders into Diddalli forest and instigate them creating anarchy and total lawlessness in the region to start with and elsewhere in the District has already illegally granted Rs. 1 Crore through the ITDP to the fellows involved in the entire Hooliganism, needless to add that every pie in this said Rs. 1 Crore is Public Money which the Govt had forcibly collected from Tax payer. Encouraged by the positive support of the Govt of Karnataka at the behest of so called self styled progressive thinkers / progressive cheaters the Maoist& ISI Terrorist groups have had the raffish courage to gain entry into the Govt property of Coorg Dist in Hoddur Panchayath area at “Palemadu” and even have attacked police personal at the place on 22-04-2017 believably with an idea of terrorising the residence of the region and push police force to numbness.

It is a known fact that these ISIS & Maoist Duo Terrorist groups are the advance parties to gain control over Coorg by some self - styled venomous serpents acting at the behest and on behalf of China and Pakistan’s ISI and certainly other inimically disposed countries.

Now, the intruders have named a road after Tippu sultan to Paalemdu Village of Kodagu. Yes, the same Tippu who massacred thousands of Codava Tribesmen in cold blood. Looks like if one really wants their name to be etched in people's hearts, name roads after them, all they have to do is murder a few people mercilessly. Ironically, that's what's happened with Tippu sultan.

Devatt Paramb is the witness, of what Tippu did to Codava Tribes. Making him a hero out of all the people, naming roads after him, in Kodagu is like naming a road near the India gate after a Pakistani & Global radical Terrorists Leader’s name. That wouldn't be acceptable, would it? Then how does the government expect us Codavas to accept this?

All these attempts, naming a road after is nothing but an attempt to please the ISIS presence in the district of Kodagu. This and only this can be a logical explanation to something so heartless towards the Codavas, who have died for this country serving in the armed forces. A mockery of the entire community.

A strange factor that has come to light shows one Monnappa admittedly a known notorious anti social element and land mafia has been selling govt lands to anyone interested Palemadu village. He is admittedly appointing man of the said devils. He has distributed lands to even such fellows who own lands in their native Malabar Mangalore and also in 3-4 places of Coorg.

This matter has to be probed at once and lands distributed by him at the behest and on the insistence of the 5[five] devils mentioned above.

If the notorious Appaji used to be mentioned as point man at Diddalli forest Monnappa is the point man of Pancha Pishachis [five devils] in Palemadu.

We have no other go but to spell out a few names of the so called leaders who have instigated Maoist & Radical Islamist groups start taking control over Coorg Dist and without any suspicion the names of those seditious conspirators include A.K Subbaiah the self styled Maulana who had instigated hoisting of Pakistan flag at Somwarpet Mosque in the year 1991 and who had caused “wild fire in Nagrahole National Park in 1992” and blame respectable innocent Codava Tribesmen of the region of having caused such an illegal activities, needless to recollect the things what the man has done earlier is that who had caused the throwing of pig head into a Mosque at Pollibetta and elsewhere and cattle heads into Hindu Temples earlier only in order to create dissention as between Hindus & Muslims. Later he took initiative to infest ISIS serpents (who have already lurk in Coorg) by forcibly organising the infamous the uncalled for Tippu Jayanthi in Coorg (the Tyrant ruler of Mysore & Psychopathic invader Tippu Sultan cunningly & covertly massacred and butchered thousands of innocent Codava Tribesmen along with their wives, Children, Kith & Kin this cannot be forgiven by Codavas). Just now this Subbaiah behaves like a retired “wrench”.

The people who actively support the man include M/s K.R Vidhyadhar Advocate, Nirvanappa of Somwarpet, Manu Shenoy of Virajpet & Amin Moisin of Madikeri who heads the ISI’s Political wing SDPI, who are spreading radical Islamist Terrorism and Maoism Ultra activities in the District. Unfortunately they make public speeches also and convene periodical secret meetings of fellows in seditious activities. In fact all their activities are instigating, propagating Anti National & Subversive Philosophy. The things what had happened in Chhattisgarh on Monday the 24-04-2017 against CRPF in which 25 police men have been ruthlessly killed by 300 Maoist Guerrillas and the criminal attack by these Maoists & ISIS terrorists on Police personal and injured them at “Paalemadu village” on 22-04-2017 only do necessarily connect the groups claiming illegal control over entire Coorg Dist, only mirror the Terrorist activities that may spoil Coorg / Kodagu in the future. Despite Codava National Council the irrepressible Codava voice having informed the Govt about all those Terrorist activities in Diddalli, Palemad & Cheriyaparamb the Govt has not taken any action so far.

The only question now arise is that if the Govt is also a party to the intended seditious activities being committed by the above groups and persons, we do not understand has how the residence of Malapuram of Malabar and Coastal Karnataka could transform themselves to be Adivasis in Coorg. In reality their interest is simply to transform Kodagu / Coorg into a Maoist Red Corridor and ISIS Ghazwa – E – Hind Green Corridor Khorasan Khaliphet Territory.

Therefore we drag this opportunity to request our Govt to implicate all criminals involved in the terrorist attack on Police personal on 22-04-2017 at the notorious “Paalemadu” Hamlet in Hoddur of Coorg Dist in Karnataka and implicate them under “POTA” (Prevention of Terrorism Activities Act) & “NSA” (National Security Act) and keep them in Jail. All these fellows who have been booked for crimes in reality there definitely need to be done in the interest of the well being of our District and ultimately in the National Interest. Better always to include and implicate the above named 5 (five devils) venomous serpents under POTA & NSA.

Respected Sir,

Sub: Cow should be considered as National spiritual animal CNC demands, and total ban on cow slaughter, trafficking and prohibition of beef selling at least in Coorg. A presidential ordinance sought for

In 1835, the British officers like.... Col Fraser was sensitive to the feelings and the customs of the Codavas and put a ban on cow slaughter. In a time and an era such as 2017, our very own Indian government, or to be precise-Karnataka government has not been seen being very sensitive and understanding of the Codavas, their traditions or their land. We request and urge the government of Karnataka to make amends and bring about a change for good, and ban cow slaughter in Kodagu simply because for generations and centuries cows have been a great part of the Codava culture. Cows have been a fear part of our lives as they were to Sri Krishna, Mahaveera, Gowthama Buddha, Mahatma Gandhi and Ambedkar. We worship her, we don't overwork her and definitely never kill her. It is one of the important aspects of coming from an agriculture based community such as the Codavas.

We urge the government of Karnataka to take similar steps as taken by yogi Adithyanath, the current CM of up, soon after coming into power. The Gujarat CM, Vijay Rupani has spoken about giving life imprisonment to anyone who slaughters, or traffics cows. The CM of Chhattisgarh had spoken about giving death sentence for the same crime. Even British Commissioner, Col Fraser’s yeoman service to Codava tribes they have honored him by changing the name of Kushalnagar to Frazerpet as the hamlets earlier comprising of Bychanalli, Gummanakolli and Dandinpet Kushalnagar was named after the sweet memory of tyrant Psychopathic son Tippu's birth by his father Haider Ali -one of the biggest names under cow slaughter as well as human slaughter at Devatt Paramb. We urge the government to be sensitive to our pleas and please take similar immediate action against people who slaughter, traffic or even encourage cow slaughter.

We urge the government to be sensitive to our pleas and please take similar immediate action against people who slaughter, traffic or even encourage cow slaughter.)

The State of Uttar Pradesh as promulgated stringent law in order to control the killing of cows and total ban on cow slaughter and trafficking of such animals and the punishment is life imprisonment. The net result of such a law has ended up in good number of people discontinuing the consumption of meat. For Ex: Spiritual head of the Ajmer Sharif dargah on Monday called upon Muslims to give up beef eating and said triple talaq is against Sharia.

The dargah is considered to be among the holiest Muslim shrines in India.

“On the occasion of the 805th Urs (death anniversary) of Khwaja Moinuddin Hasan Chisty, who all through his life strived for peaceful coexistence of Hindus and Muslims, we (Muslims) should give up eating beef to honour the religious sentiments of our Hindu brethren,” said Zainul Abedin Khan, the diwan of the shrine. He also took a vow on the occasion not to eat beef. “My family and I have taken a pledge on this day that we will never have beef for the rest of our lives,” he said, in a statement.

Khan is the direct descendant in the 22nd generation of Khwaja Moinuddin Chishti, the Sufi saint.

His appeal comes amid the ragging controversy over cow slaughter with many Indian states coming up with stringent laws to prevent killing of cows and eating its meat. The bovine is considered sacred by many Hindus.

Khan supported the Gujarat government’s recent legislation announcing life sentence for those found guilty of killing cows. The Gujarat assembly had last week passed a bill enhancing the punishment for cow slaughter from seven years to life imprisonment.

“This (Gujarat legislation) would be a great deterrent for those involved in killing cows for meat and other products”, he said and called upon Prime Minister Narendra Modi to declare cow as national animal.

The diwan condemned the practice of triple talaq, saying the Quran and Sharia do not permit it.

“As it is inhuman, anti-Islamic and against the gender equality, it should be shunned without any further delay”, he said.

Triple talaq, as it is commonly called, is a controversial Islamic practice where a man divorces a woman by saying the word talaq, the Arabic word for divorce, three times.

Narendra Modi-led government at the Centre is advocating for a ban on the practice, though many Muslim organisations are against such move.

“Why some people in the community are reluctant to give up the practice which Quran and Prophet Mohammed never approved, is beyond the comprehension of a reasonable section of Muslim”, he said.

“Time has come to eschew the practice that victimises our sisters and daughters”, Khan added.

A five-judge constitution bench of the Supreme Court will start hearing from May 11 petitions against the Islamic divorce practice that is said to be biased against women.

The All India Shia Personal Law Board (AISPLB) on Wednesday issued a fatwa against cow slaughtering and consumption of beef.

During its executive committee meeting in Lucknow, AISPLB member Maulana Yasoob Abbas said that the fatwa has been issued after consultation with top Shia cleric from Iraq, Ayatollah Sheikh Basheer Najafi.

?We wrote to Ayatollah Sheikh Basheer Najafi, who is in Iraq and raised concern over the issue and in response to that he said not to slaughter cows or eat beef. He has granted fatwa against it,? Abbas told the reporters here.

He added that the reason behind the fatwa is that the cow slaughter often triggered communal tension in the country.

The AISPLB also joined the force demanding strict law on the practice of Triple Talaq and requested the Centre to come up with restriction to refrain people from its misuse.

?In Islam equal rights has been given to both men and women. So, giving talaq through Watsaap and phone is not acceptable. We have decide to get a severe law against this like it has been done in Sati-pratha,? said Abbas.

The board even raised concern over the Babri Masjid issue and welcomed the Supreme Court proposal to mediate between both the communities to solve the issue.

?All India Shia Personal Law Board wants this matter to be resolved through table talk as suggested by the Supreme Court. This matter cannot be solved just by raising slogans,? he said.

Hussain Najafi is one of the five Grand Ayatollahs in Iraq and is entitled to issue a fatwa for the community members.

Earlier, the Dewan of Ajmer Dargah and an influential Sunni Islamic spiritual leader said that the practice of triple talaq is un-Islamic and against the Holy Quran.

The Supreme Court is set to hear multiple pleas challenging the validity of triple talaq, 'nikah halala' and polygamy practices among Muslims community on May 11 by a Constitution bench during the summer vacation.

(This article has not been edited by DNA's editorial team and is auto-generated from an agency feed.)

These are all very welcoming steps towards the protection of cows.

But the case in Kodagu is other way round we see cows being transported to other places particularly Kerala. A large number of Cows are being killed in Siddapura, Nellihudikeri, Kottamudi, Napoklu, Virajpet, Suntikoppa, Kutta, Gonikoppa and some hotels also secretly supplying dishes made of beef, not only that there is improvement in preparing condiments (Masala Powder) specially manufactured Masala for beef in Kodagu. This does not stop there only. A good number of people are acting as provocateurs for slaughtering of cows and its trafficking and support the daylight marketing of such beef. Under the guise of cow trafficking the ISIS radical groups already have taken shelter in Coorg to create their intended Ghazwa – E – Hind Khorasan Khaliphet green Corridor it is a very dangerous trend towards our sovereignty and threat to the National security, this has to be curbed.

Stringent laws has been promulgated in UP by the Chief Minister Mr. Yogi Adithyanath ji in order to slaughtering of cows should also be promulgated at least in Kodagu Dist and not only that instigators and agents who involves in selling and expanding the market trend for beef should also be brought with life sentence under an ordinance at once.

Hence we request for presidential ordinance for the protection of cows at least in Coorg, and cow should be considered as National spiritual animal at once in the interest of National Security, justice & equity.


Codava Sathyagraha held under the aegis of CNC at Bangalore on 21-3-2017

21-03-2017

Press Release

Dear Editor,

Observance of International day for the elimination of racial discrimination by Codava Tribes men hailing from different parts of Coorg in their traditional attire squat in a peaceful Sathyagraha under aegis of CNC-Codava Sathyagraha at Bangalore in the vicinity of Town Hall on 21- 3-2017 at 9.30 AM until 12.30 p.m demanding Codava land autonomy/ carving out of UT status for Coorg and continuation of the struggle for regaining the existence of Codava tribalism under the schedule list of our Constitution…… after Sathyagraha submitted a memorandum to the concerned.

The deliberate and in excusable apathy of the governmental organizations and the ones who helm the Govts to exert any effort to enliven and revitalize Codava tribe definitely has shown the traces of our tribe losing its existence and if such a thing continues for some more time such a day is not far when Codava tribe and Codava culture becomes a chapter in the ancient history and our boys will have to read about it for the purpose of facing annual examinations what used to be the major class with largest population in the, the then demographic mosaic prevail at the time of state reorganization when Coorg was separate “C” type state of India has turned out to be just minimal, 18 to 20 percent of the total population in the district. This certainly is the handy work of the Govt of Karnataka and the enmass political tribe that run the show. The main idea has been to eliminate Codava tribalism in its totality, de - populate Codava tribes and re-populate with immigrants from elsewhere, There by de - legitimize Codava aboriginal indigenous tribalism once for all. After having changed the demography of Codava folkloric cultural habitation, the Govt has been supporting to transform this region in to Maoist red - corridor and Ghazwa – E – Hind Green Corridor i.e Radical Caliphate of ISIS with that of any substituting ethos to opposition and resistance is becoming a thing of the past except the things what this organization CNC has been doing.

Besides Coorg becoming a safe heaven and hub for narcotic Mafias, Timber Mafias, Hawala racketeers, fake currency circulators, land Mafias, underworld dons, realtors, deal makers, fixers, negotiators, Pimps, Power brokers, Benami property holders, Black marketers, commission agents, builders, developers, Brothel trafficking Mafias under the patronage of political bosses in the helm of affairs. They defiled the very sanctity of this holy divine land of life line River Cauvery.

Our organization CNC during the past over 27 years has been struggling for the re - vitalization of Codava land Autonomy, continuation of the struggle for regaining the existence of Codava tribalism by incorporating in the schedule list of our Constitution coupled with carving out of UT status for Coorg and allied subjects. After having taken cognizance of our subject, long standing demand and relentless struggle the Union Govt only recently directed the State of Karnataka to conduct the “Ethnographic survey” about “Codava tribes” only in order to prove and ascertain of our claim. No doubt true that the social welfare ministry of state of Karnataka has entrusted the matter of conducting survey to Tribal Research Institute Mysore on 16 11 2016 and even while survey operation was in force. The Govt of Karnataka has orally called a stop to such a survey enumeration only in order to help Psychopathic Codava traitors, Anti National elements and vested interests with ulterior motive, who in actual fact dream of acquiring every inch of Codava home land for themselves.

One must know that the tragic massacre of “Devatt Paramb” which occurred in 1785 where thousands of innocent Codava tribes men including their women and children were cowardly, mercilessly butchered by tyrant ruler of Mysore Tippu Sultan and his French East India Company allied forces under the pretext of entering a peace treaty is still not effaced from our memories and the Govt diabolically has even suppressed the emotional aspiration of Codava Tribes to erect a monument in memory of those Codava ancestors and even has snatched our right to pay memorial tribute to our departed souls at Devatt Paramb. It shows the actual desire and evil design to discriminate and eliminate Codava Tribalism once and for all. The disasters holocaust that took place centuries ago has made its way down generations, still haunting and traumatizing the Codava Tribal Race.

Stopping of Ethnographic survey operation by the Govt of Karnataka will certainly amount to racial discrimination forcing the minuscule micro minority of Codava tribe to extermination / nay ethnic cleansing once and for all. This is not a solitary example of the attempted effort to exterminate Codava tribalism but also it is intended to snatch away our intrinsic right to hold our land, enjoy the right of our language Codava Thakk our political existence, besides Codava ethnic identity and to make the same as a thing of the past. Unless constitutional guarantee by incorporating under Article 340 & 342 in the schedule list of our Constitution has as is being demanded by us Codava racial tribal identity and ethno tribalism will soon become a thing of a past as has happened to Kurds, Yezdis, Red Indians & Kashmir Pundits and the like. We have and we will become aliens in our own homeland, if it is so it is a greatest tragedy of 21st Century, and it is a question of Humanity and it is a cause for concern.

With a solitary intention of reverberating all our efforts during the last 27 years, demanding our legitimate claim we are once again at it and we will hold a peace full Sathyagraha in the vicinity of town hall Bangalore on 21 march 2017 starting from 09.30 a.m and it terminates until 12.30 p.m to mark the observation of international day for the elimination of racial discrimination .,.

Our charter of demands includes the following:-

1. We demand a permanent political package to grant Codava land with Union Territory status for Coorg under articles 2 & 3 of our Constitution.

2. Autonomy to Codava land under the 6th schedule of our Constitution. On the lines of Gorkhaland & Bodoland and Ladakh Buddhist Autonomous council and hill Autonomous councils of North Eastern regions.

3. Incorporate Codava Martial tribal Race in the Schedule list of our Constitution under articles 340 and 342 of our Constitution. We demand Tribal status to Codavas by race under articles 340 – 342 of our Constitution. We take pleasure to remind the Govt about the inclusion of Jain Community as religious minority even though they are known to be the wealthiest people in India besides being Hindus in real sense. Jaats are also granted OBC status despite the fact that they are economically, politically and socially most affluent class of people spread over in 9 states of our country. The Rajasthan state has granted Tribal Status to violent Gujjars whose numbers exceeds 8crore in the country. Even though Codavas by Race historically are known to be a Martial Class in Nature and numbering a meager 1 ½ lakhs population and that no other class of people would be affected or Jeoparadise if we are granted with Tribal status. PS. Unlike Zoroastrians who are scattered everywhere in the Nation besides being the richest and prominent in the judiciary, Industrial arena and in general activities besides being most Cosmopolitan and urbane. They have a separate religion of their own called Zoroastrianism unlike Codavas who are rustic by nature confined to Kodagu /Coorg region. Hence Tribal status is fittest for them.

To quote a few examples the Jains, the conscious keepers & the soul of Hindu religion & the wealthiest community in India has been assigned with religious minority status by Second UPA Govt in the year 2013. The Parliamentary standing committee has recommended the assigning of the Minority status to Kashmiri Pandits. Both Jawaharlal Nehru and Indira Gandhi used to be Kashmiri Pandits and Rajiv Gandhi one half who breathed their last as Prime Ministers and leader of the opposition respectively. A good number of Kashmiri Pandits have been elevated as Army chiefs, Diplomats, Prominent Journalists, Jurists and Film stars and such things.

One other example is that the refugee Pandits from POK (Azad Kashmir) are likely (a proposal from NDA Govt) to be made as members of Parliament and legislature and nominated 24 seats from amongst them.

Even though the list of 500 prominent communities in the Social life of America the contribution of Gujarathi Patels are listed in 300 in the social hierarchy and similarly on 24th of 30 such groups in England’s social Hierarchy. The wealthiest and strongest Patels (Pattedars) are likely to be inducted into the list of OBC by our Govt which in reality is a disgrace.

Vasundhara Raje Govt has already assigned 50% of total demands of otherwise violent mighty Gujjars agitated under its leader Col. Kirori Singh Bainsala for being treated as Tribals at Rajasthan. Lesser said about the wealthiest land holder “Kaapu” community in Andhra Pradesh also demand for OBC status.

No doubt true that the above mentioned groups have proved themselves to be inimical towards general population of the Nation but be assured that Codavas shall never follow the foot prints of those groups and nothing would be geo paradized should we be included in the Tribal list.

With a solitary intention of protecting our land and acquire all such amenities as employment, education and financial reservations and the like we are determined to advance our claim for being included in the Tribal list at once, better during the ongoing parliamentary session we insist the Union Govt to place a Bill in that regard. Unless that is done one must know that Codavas will become a group like Kurdish & yezidi communities of Middle - East and Pandits of Kashmir.

4. Codava thakk should be included in the 8th schedule of our Constitution. Codava Thakk / Codava Language is as ancient as human civilization is rich and living spoken language throughout the history fit enough to be included in the 8th schedule of our Constitution. We propose to cite MANORAMA YEAR BOOK 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017 continuously documented and which mentions about the 16 popular languages of our Country which includes Codava language to strengthen our claim – Manorama year book page 680 - Other Popular Languages 1. Angika 2. Awadhi 3. Bhojpuri 4. Bundeli 5. Chhatisgarhi 6. Hariyanavi 7. Hinduatani 8. Kanauji 9. Magadhi 10. Marwari 11. Bhili 12. Gondi 13. Kodava 14. Kutchi 15. Thulu 16. Mahi.

PS:- The Constitution (Amendment) Bill, 2016 (amendment of the Eighth Schedule) & The Constitution (Amendment) Bill, 2016 (insertion of new article 338B) Private member Bill moved by Mr. B.K Hariprasad regarding the inclusion of Codava Thakk in the 8th Schedule of our Constitution. On behalf of Codava Race CNC congratulates him whole heartedly. We are happy to announce our having met Sri. B.K Hariprasad MP at his residence in New Delhi on 01-11-2016 and explained him about our movement and all our demands including the demand for the incorporation of Codava Thakk in the 8th Schedule of our Constitution congratulated him for having taken Codava Thakk for the inclusion of 8th schedule in our Constitution.

5. Protect our land tenure under article 371 of our Constitution with inner line permit on the lines of North - East States of India. Protect our Land tenure under article 371 of our Constitution: (Inner Line Permit) The provisions of article 371 of our Constitution with inner line permit should be made applicable to Kodagu region at once as has been done in relation to Manipur and other North Eastern states. With a solitary intention of protecting our land from alienation and protecting our demography and such a thing called as “inner line permit”. Important factor is that large number of underworld dons particularly Dawood Ibhrahim ( D Company), regular miscreants with harden criminality, and business Tycoons from across the Country with the active support and assistance from Hawala agencies and fake currency racketeers have been grabbing lands in the this District. With a major idea of protecting lands in the district and the interest of the natives the promulgation of such stringent law within Coorg is warranted.

6. Exclusive Codava nominated representation in the Parliament and Assembly on the lines of Anglo Indians should be given under article 331 of our Constitution.

7. Devatt Paramb massacre – a tragic human holocaust in the mankind – We Insist for National Memorial / Monument of that Memorial on the lines of Jallianwala Bagh in memory of Amritsar Massacre and this tragedy should be included in the International Holocaust remembrance list of UNO. And International Holocaust Museum should be established in memory of those Codava families (approximately 60 thousand unarmed Codavas) who were massacred by Tyrant Tippu sultan of Mysore and his rapacious soldiers, along with ruthless his French East India Company allied forces, after 32 continuous invasions tippu got defeated by Codava warriors disappointing in this insult he conspired to eliminate entire Codava martial tribal race, cunningly invited them for a grand feast in the pretext of entering a friendly treaty with Codavas at Devatt Paramb in the year 1785 13 December. This heinous inhuman tragic genocide/holocaust in the mankind happened in this place. – But their great souls are still alive in Devatt Paramb.

8. Under Indian Arms act 1959 section 3 & 4 for carry and posses fire arms by Codavas and Jamma holders should be continued and protected for ever without any hindrance.

9. Demand for the implementation of the recommendations made by Constitution review Commission of India on the insistence of Codava National Council for the creation of Coorg Development Board under article 371 of (Please note: Chapter 8 Union State relation 8.23.1 of CRC report) as has been done in relation to touching Hyderabad Karnataka Region - appropriate amendment to the Constitution is desirable at once.

10. Codava Race should be globally recognized on par with Jews, Parsis, Sindhi, Yezidi, Kurdi, Baloch and Pastun etc.

11. Micro Minority Ethno cultural Codava tribal race should be included in the intangible cultural heritage list of UNESCO.

12. Demand for permanent deployment of NIA (National Investigating Agency) and RA&W agencies, and this demand is recently incorporated along with the other 11 demands.

Our demand No. 12 mentioned above pertains to the expected threat from global radical Islamic Terrorism and transformation of Kodagu into Psychopathic ISIS ‘Ghazwa –E- Hind’ Green Corridor and Naxal Maoist Red corridor should be curtailed, by permanently deploying NIA and RA&W agencies in Kodagu (Coorg) should such a thing be carried out. Please be assured that the residence here will be able to breathe fearlessly and the interest of National security and oneness will be protected forever. The above mentioned 12 demands certainly do require immediate consideration.

The main idea has been to eliminate Codava tribalism in its totality, de - populate Codava tribes and re-populate with immigrants from elsewhere, There by de - legitimize Codava aboriginal indigenous tribalism once for all. After having changed the demography of Codava folkloric cultural habitation, the Govt has been supporting to transform this region in to Maoist red - corridor and Ghazwa – E – Hind Green Corridor i.e Radical Caliphate of ISIS with that of any substituting ethos to opposition and resistance is becoming a thing of the past except the things what this organization CNC has been doing.

Besides Coorg becoming a safe heaven and hub for narcotic Mafias, Timber Mafias, Hawala racketeers, fake currency circulators, land Mafias, underworld dons, realtors, deal makers, fixers, negotiators, Pimps, Power brokers, commission agents, builders, developers, Brothel trafficking Mafias under the patronage of political bosses in the helm of affairs. They defiled the very sanctity of this holy divine land of life line River Cauvery.

Our organization CNC during the past over 27 years has been struggling for the re - vitalization of Codava land Autonomy, continuation of the struggle for regaining the existence of Codava tribalism by incorporating in the schedule list of our Constitution coupled with carving out of UT status for Coorg and allied subjects. After having taken cognizance of our subject, long standing demand and relentless struggle the Union Govt only recently directed the State of Karnataka to conduct the “Ethnographic survey” about “Codava tribes” only in order to prove and ascertain of our claim. No doubt true that the social welfare ministry of state of Karnataka has entrusted the matter of conducting survey to Tribal Research Institute Mysore on 16 11 2016 and even while survey operation was in force. The Govt of Karnataka has orally called a stop to such a survey enumeration only in order to help Psychopathic Codava traitors, Anti National elements and vested interests with ulterior motive, who in actual fact dream of acquiring every inch of Codava home land for themselves.

One must know that the tragic massacre of “Devatt Paramb” which occurred in 1785 where thousands of innocent Codava tribes men including their women and children were cowardly, mercilessly butchered by tyrant ruler of Mysore Tippu Sultan and his French East India Company allied forces under the pretext of entering a peace treaty is still not effaced from our memories and the Govt diabolically has even suppressed the emotional aspiration of Codava Tribes to erect a monument in memory of those Codava ancestors and even has snatched our right to pay memorial tribute to our departed souls at Devatt Paramb. It shows the actual desire and evil design to discriminate and eliminate Codava Tribalism once and for all. The disasters holocaust that took place centuries ago has made its way down generations, still haunting and traumatizing the Codava Tribal Race.

Stopping of Ethnographic survey operation by the Govt of Karnataka will certainly amount to racial discrimination forcing the minuscule micro minority of Codava tribe to extermination / nay ethnic cleansing once and for all. This is not a solitary example of the attempted effort to exterminate Codava tribalism but also it is intended to snatch away our intrinsic right to hold our land, enjoy the right of our language Codava Thakk our political existence, besides Codava ethnic identity and to make the same as a thing of the past. Unless constitutional guarantee by incorporating under Article 340 & 342 in the schedule list of our Constitution has as is being demanded by us Codava racial tribal identity and ethno tribalism will soon become a thing of a past as has happened to Kurds, Yezdis, Red Indians & Kashmir Pundits and the like. We have and we will become aliens in our own homeland, if it is so it is a greatest tragedy of 21st Century, and it is a question of Humanity and it is a cause for concern.

With a solitary intention of reverberating all our efforts during the last 27 years, demanding our legitimate claim we are once again at it and we will hold a peace full Sathyagraha in the vicinity of town hall Bangalore on 21 march 2017 starting from 09.30 a.m and it terminates until 12.30 p.m to mark the observation of international day for the elimination of racial discrimination .,.

Our charter of demands includes the following:-

1. We demand a permanent political package to grant Codava land with Union Territory status for Coorg under articles 2 & 3 of our Constitution.

2. Autonomy to Codava land under the 6th schedule of our Constitution. On the lines of Gorkhaland & Bodoland and Ladakh Buddhist Autonomous council and hill Autonomous councils of North Eastern regions.

3. Incorporate Codava Martial tribal Race in the Schedule list of our Constitution under articles 340 and 342 of our Constitution. We demand Tribal status to Codavas by race under articles 340 – 342 of our Constitution. We take pleasure to remind the Govt about the inclusion of Jain Community as religious minority even though they are known to be the wealthiest people in India besides being Hindus in real sense. Jaats are also granted OBC status despite the fact that they are economically, politically and socially most affluent class of people spread over in 9 states of our country. The Rajasthan state has granted Tribal Status to violent Gujjars whose numbers exceeds 8crore in the country. Even though Codavas by Race historically are known to be a Martial Class in Nature and numbering a meager 1 ½ lakhs population and that no other class of people would be affected or Jeoparadise if we are granted with Tribal status. PS. Unlike Zoroastrians who are scattered everywhere in the Nation besides being the richest and prominent in the judiciary, Industrial arena and in general activities besides being most Cosmopolitan and urbane. They have a separate religion of their own called Zoroastrianism unlike Codavas who are rustic by nature confined to Kodagu /Coorg region. Hence Tribal status is fittest for them.

To quote a few examples the Jains, the conscious keepers & the soul of Hindu religion & the wealthiest community in India has been assigned with religious minority status by Second UPA Govt in the year 2013. The Parliamentary standing committee has recommended the assigning of the Minority status to Kashmiri Pandits. Both Jawaharlal Nehru and Indira Gandhi used to be Kashmiri Pandits and Rajiv Gandhi one half who breathed their last as Prime Ministers and leader of the opposition respectively. A good number of Kashmiri Pandits have been elevated as Army chiefs, Diplomats, Prominent Journalists, Jurists and Film stars and such things.

One other example is that the refugee Pandits from POK (Azad Kashmir) are likely (a proposal from NDA Govt) to be made as members of Parliament and legislature and nominated 24 seats from amongst them.

Even though the list of 500 prominent communities in the Social life of America the contribution of Gujarathi Patels are listed in 300 in the social hierarchy and similarly on 24th of 30 such groups in England’s social Hierarchy. The wealthiest and strongest Patels (Pattedars) are likely to be inducted into the list of OBC by our Govt which in reality is a disgrace.

Vasundhara Raje Govt has already assigned 50% of total demands of otherwise violent mighty Gujjars agitated under its leader Col. Kirori Singh Bainsala for being treated as Tribals at Rajasthan. Lesser said about the wealthiest land holder “Kaapu” community in Andhra Pradesh also demand for OBC status.

No doubt true that the above mentioned groups have proved themselves to be inimical towards general population of the Nation but be assured that Codavas shall never follow the foot prints of those groups and nothing would be geo paradized should we be included in the Tribal list.

With a solitary intention of protecting our land and acquire all such amenities as employment, education and financial reservations and the like we are determined to advance our claim for being included in the Tribal list at once, better during the ongoing parliamentary session we insist the Union Govt to place a Bill in that regard. Unless that is done one must know that Codavas will become a group like Kurdish & yezidi communities of Middle - East and Pandits of Kashmir.

4. Codava thakk should be included in the 8th schedule of our Constitution. Codava Thakk / Codava Language is as ancient as human civilization is rich and living spoken language throughout the history fit enough to be included in the 8th schedule of our Constitution. We propose to cite MANORAMA YEAR BOOK 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017 continuously documented and which mentions about the 16 popular languages of our Country which includes Codava language to strengthen our claim – Manorama year book page 680 - Other Popular Languages 1. Angika 2. Awadhi 3. Bhojpuri 4. Bundeli 5. Chhatisgarhi 6. Hariyanavi 7. Hinduatani 8. Kanauji 9. Magadhi 10. Marwari 11. Bhili 12. Gondi 13. Kodava 14. Kutchi 15. Thulu 16. Mahi.

PS:- The Constitution (Amendment) Bill, 2016 (amendment of the Eighth Schedule) & The Constitution (Amendment) Bill, 2016 (insertion of new article 338B) Private member Bill moved by Mr. B.K Hariprasad regarding the inclusion of Codava Thakk in the 8th Schedule of our Constitution. On behalf of Codava Race CNC congratulates him whole heartedly. We are happy to announce our having met Sri. B.K Hariprasad MP at his residence in New Delhi on 01-11-2016 and explained him about our movement and all our demands including the demand for the incorporation of Codava Thakk in the 8th Schedule of our Constitution congratulated him for having taken Codava Thakk for the inclusion of 8th schedule in our Constitution.

5. Protect our land tenure under article 371 of our Constitution with inner line permit on the lines of North - East States of India. Protect our Land tenure under article 371 of our Constitution: (Inner Line Permit) The provisions of article 371 of our Constitution with inner line permit should be made applicable to Kodagu region at once as has been done in relation to Manipur and other North Eastern states. With a solitary intention of protecting our land from alienation and protecting our demography and such a thing called as “inner line permit”. Important factor is that large number of underworld dons particularly Dawood Ibhrahim ( D Company), regular miscreants with harden criminality, and business Tycoons from across the Country with the active support and assistance from Hawala agencies and fake currency racketeers have been grabbing lands in the this District. With a major idea of protecting lands in the district and the interest of the natives the promulgation of such stringent law within Coorg is warranted.

6. Exclusive Codava nominated representation in the Parliament and Assembly on the lines of Anglo Indians should be given under article 331 of our Constitution.

7. Devatt Paramb massacre – a tragic human holocaust in the mankind – We Insist for National Memorial / Monument of that Memorial on the lines of Jallianwala Bagh in memory of Amritsar Massacre and this tragedy should be included in the International Holocaust remembrance list of UNO. And International Holocaust Museum should be established in memory of those Codava families (approximately 60 thousand unarmed Codavas) who were massacred by Tyrant Tippu sultan of Mysore and his rapacious soldiers, along with ruthless his French East India Company allied forces, after 32 continuous invasions tippu got defeated by Codava warriors disappointing in this insult he conspired to eliminate entire Codava martial tribal race, cunningly invited them for a grand feast in the pretext of entering a friendly treaty with Codavas at Devatt Paramb in the year 1785 13 December. This heinous inhuman tragic genocide/holocaust in the mankind happened in this place. – But their great souls are still alive in Devatt Paramb.

8. Under Indian Arms act 1959 section 3 & 4 for carry and posses fire arms by Codavas and Jamma holders should be continued and protected for ever without any hindrance.

9. Demand for the implementation of the recommendations made by Constitution review Commission of India on the insistence of Codava National Council for the creation of Coorg Development Board under article 371 of (Please note: Chapter 8 Union State relation 8.23.1 of CRC report) as has been done in relation to touching Hyderabad Karnataka Region - appropriate amendment to the Constitution is desirable at once.

10. Codava Race should be globally recognized on par with Jews, Parsis, Sindhi, Yezidi, Kurdi, Baloch and Pastun etc.

11. Micro Minority Ethno cultural Codava tribal race should be included in the intangible cultural heritage list of UNESCO.

12. Demand for permanent deployment of NIA (National Investigating Agency) and RA&W agencies, and this demand is recently incorporated along with the other 11 demands.

Our demand No. 12 mentioned above pertains to the expected threat from global radical Islamic Terrorism and transformation of Kodagu into Psychopathic ISIS ‘Ghazwa –E- Hind’ Green Corridor and Naxal Maoist Red corridor should be curtailed, by permanently deploying NIA and RA&W agencies in Kodagu (Coorg) should such a thing be carried out. Please be assured that the residence here will be able to breathe fearlessly and the interest of National security and oneness will be protected forever. The above mentioned 12 demands certainly do require immediate consideration.

The successive Governments and all the concerned there with have seized the opportunity to discriminate this region and indigenous Codava race and natives and in reality we have been suffering all the anomalies inflicted by our Government. The Government of Karnataka deliberately has discriminated against Codava Region with a solitary intension of erasing the very existence of the native people, Codava race and render the entire area to disuser and spoil our soil, cultural heritage, language and aboriginal indigenes Codava identity and historic existence in totality, besides causing insecurity in all spheres. The only method to safe guard the entire region ; the then “C” State of Coorg. The Cultural heritage of the people and the financial background of the region can be caused done by declaring this region to be an Union Territory under the direct control of the Union Government. The successive Karnataka Government has considered this region to be an occupied territory in a war, treating the region a resource generating colony besides continuously having ill-treated the natives here. Added to it State of Karnataka has treated the native Codavas to be the subjects of their occupied territory and never as a citizens proper. Forget not the fact that each and every Codava regardless of status has contributed his might much beyond his capacity to rescue the boundaries of India and safeguard the interest of our mother country, needless to add that Codava’s are a martial race to every inch and not a single Codava family is not without a member in active military service. Despite Coorg being the known cradle of warriors has been and continuously being marginalised, excluded, neglected and disrespected intentionally with a solitary idea of erasing its existence totally. Despite the fact that the president of India has ratified the Karnataka Land Revenue amendment Act 2011 touching the confirmation of absolute ownership and tittle over the ancient jamma tenure lands in Codagu and even though Gazette notification has been published, the always corrupt and treacheries officialdom in Revenue department deputed by state Govt have proved themselves to be still more lethargic and dishonest and they deliberately play fraud with the natives by suppressing the law that prevails just now. The rapacious and tyrannical behavior of everyone concerned with the Government of Karnataka is continuing without any stop Therefore we would like to re-iterate a fact that now time is ripe to get eradicated all the anomalies caused by the Government of Karnataka. A declaration of Codava Land Union Territory to that effect is clearly warranted in the attending circumstances. Codava Land U.T. is more essential, humane and deserving. It may be recalled that at the time of reorganisation of states on 1 November 1956, parts of erstwhile Hyderabad Nizam province were merged with Karnataka (then state of Mysore), Maharashtra and Andhra Pradesh. If Bidar, Gulbarga and Raichur became parts of Hyderabad Karnataka, the parts merged with Maharashtra came to be identified as Marathawada region. The parts merged with Vishalandra. Later that entire region got identified as Telangana. But despite Codagu being a C state and the traditional homeland of the Codava race, it was merged with Karnataka.

After having failed to bring the leader of this organization under their Control together with CNC the interested Real Estate Mafias, deal makers, builders, Fixers, Negotiators, Power Brokers, Land Mafias, Contractor Mafias, Pimps and Commission Agents within amongst Codavas at the behest of State Govt under the name and style as federation/Samaja are trying to implement their Satanic designs through their agencies and groups caused for the purposes. Every born Codavas should be very careful about the existence and modalities of such patently ruinous Chameleon type groups.

It is a truth that the Government of Karnataka has been treating Codavas with recriminatary attitude and partial treatment made this organization to be a force to reckon with. Unable to tolerate any more CNC’s continued & sustained resistance the government of Karnataka has installed many traitor Codavas by focusing them as its human shield and thing has worked out to rescue the government continuously, we warn Codavas in general against those treacherous Codava and be keep being alarmed against reckless ploy of Government.

All the proposals placed by CNC touching the request for treating Devati Parambu as National Monument are being hijacked and poached. The miscreants have not left, one single comma, semicolon, full stop, Subjects and Thok Namme etc., and the body language of all the communications, all the public lectures and statements of our leader verbatim. They have not even allowed untouched the dress code of CNC and contents of all the wordings of our official letter head in order to play mischief we expect fellows to distort the very nature of the movement we are leading. They try to confuse the Government, the Press and the general public always. Therefore we cushion the general public, the media and the Governmental setup to be very careful about the unhealthy and diabolic mischievous activities of these Jackals. We are eager to remind the Codava generality that we have taken the activities of our organization towards the desired goal through unimaginable and totally adverse atmosphere and opposition of treacherous persons.

Following are the criterion fixed in the Constitution touching the Constitution of U.T.

01. Union territories are ruled directly by the Union Government ( Central Government)

02. The President of India appoints an administrator or lieutenant – Governor for each U.T.

03. Union territories of India have special rights and status due to their Constitutional formation and development.

04. For safeguarding the rights of Indigenous cultures, averting political turmoil related to matters of governance.

05. All the tax money goes to center as a U.T., region will be able to attract central funds exclusively for its development 06. Union territories serve the purpose of administering regions which are small yet diverse may be because of their history or culture or geography.

07. Correct the anomaly caused by the reorganization of States which took place in 1956.

08. Sustain the economic, linguistic and cultural affinities of the region.

09. Politically, economically and educationally as they are in varying phases of development Central Government can take care of them without discrimination.

10. Administration as U.T will not drain the public exchequer.

11. Apart from improving the administrative setup move would help instill a sense of security among those from other regions of the state, who despite their decades - long stay in the region are feeling the jitters.

With a solitary idea of managing the affairs of any certain given area and also to make it known that the particular area is being governed properly and justice reaches to each and everyone, the Constitution framers have after much discussion and studying elaborately about the attending features of any particular given group of Towns and areas have formulated the idea of creating Union Territories in contrast with larger states. Before terming any particular area to be made Union Territory the Constitution framers have deeply studied about the topographical features , Geo-political aspirations of the indigenous people of that particular areas besides historical back ground and Economic criteria until that point of time. Added to it they have attempted to make an in-depth study in to the language and culture of the indigenous people of that area and such other attending features.

ECONOMIC VIABILITY FOR THE FORMATION OF CODAVA LAND U.T.

To assert our economic viability for the formation of U.T the point No.5 mentions about the economic base and fund raiser in the manner of tax to be extracted to the Union Government which in turn remits a substantial thereof to the developmental programs Union Territory if it created. The financial resources from Coffee production, Forest wealth, Royalty from Cauvery waters and promotion of Tourism shall last until Sun and Moon exists and Union Governments must remember for this real truthful fact.

The things explained below fulfils criterion for Economic viability ( budgetary provisions). 1.Our Coffee ( Coorg Coffee) is classified to be the best in world. After Petroleum Coffee is the Second largest traded commodity in the world. India is considered to be the 6th largest Coffee producer in the world, and Coorg produces an average 40% of total national production. Enough if we arrive at a conclusion that gross foreign exchange from Coffee India earns every year is around Rs. 5 thousand Crores and it is safest method to add that Codagu supplies 40% of it. 2.The flora & fauna and never hazardous perennial rivulets and water falls are exceptional only to Coorg. The lasting long forest wealth in Codagu is considered to be the best carbon supplier in the world. 3. Added to it the average annual yield of Cauvery river waters from Coorg exceeds 180 TMC feet. (The lifeline of South India River Cauvery has taken its birth in Coorg, particularly at Talacauvery). 4. What more, the role of income from tourism activities ( The panoramic natural beauty, innumerable hillocks, pleasing natural atmosphere, added to it the kindly people are worth mentioning. It would be right if Coorg is termed as Gods own paradise on earth) Codagu stands next only to that of Isthanbul in world should Codava Land of Coorg be classified as Union Territory. It is very easy to take these features to be the main budgetary base for the maintenance and management of the Union Territories sought to be created. No doubt the actual money supply is addressed to the Union Governament and it is just practical to understand the money shall be allotted from the Union Government to this region ( Coorg) should it become a separate U.T. and unconnected with the State of Karnataka.

Hence C.N.C demands for the immediate creation of Codava Land Union Territory in the interest of justice and equity.

MEMORANDUM

Dear Sir/Madam,

Subject : Republic Day Sathyagraha under the aegis of Codava National Council ; Codava Volunteers symbolically registered their protest on 26-01-2017 and submitted Memorandum to the above dignitaries through The Deputy Commissioner.

The very notion of Republic in India is incomplete unless & until Codava Land UT and Codava Land Autonomy is established at once, and all the 12 demands as advanced by CNC should be provided with Constitutional guarantee and we unhesitatingly insist that we would continue our struggle. We only hope that Codava land UT and autonomy becomes a reality and facilitate Codavas to participate in all such celebrations as they should be; and we hope that the actual bed rock will be very soon and create an atmosphere to enjoy the concept of meaningful republic.

Our Geo- Political Goal & Aspirations- Codava Land. UT & incorporate Codava Martial Tribal Race in the schedule list of our constitution.

Codava Declaration

Charter of Demands:-

1. We demand a permanent political package to grant Codava land with Union Territory status for Coorg under articles 2 & 3 of our Constitution.

2. Autonomy to Codava land under the 6th schedule of our Constitution. On the lines of Gorkhaland & Bodoland and Ladakh Buddhist Autonomous council and hill Autonomous councils of North Eastern regions.

3. Incorporate Codava Martial tribal Race in the Schedule list of our Constitution under articles 340 and 342 of our Constitution. We demand Tribal status to Codavas by race under articles 340 – 342 of our Constitution. We take pleasure to remind the Govt about the inclusion of Jain Community as religious minority even though they are known to be the wealthiest people in India besides being Hindus in real sense. Jaats are also granted OBC status despite the fact that they are economically, politically and socially most affluent class of people spread over in 9 states of our country. The Rajasthan state has granted Tribal Status to violent Gujjars whose numbers exceeds 8crore in the country. Even though Codavas by Race historically are known to be a Martial Class in Nature and numbering a meager 1 ½ lakhs population and that no other class of people would be affected or Jeoparadise if we are granted with Tribal status. PS. Unlike Zoroastrians who are scattered everywhere in the Nation besides being the richest and prominent in the judiciary, Industrial arena and in general activities besides being most Cosmopolitan and urbane. They have a separate religion of their own called Zoroastrianism unlike Codavas who are rustic by nature confined to Kodagu /Coorg region. Hence Tribal status is fittest for them.

To quote a few examples the Jains, the conscious keepers & the soul of Hindu religion & the wealthiest community in India has been assigned with religious minority status by Second UPA Govt in the year 2013. The Parliamentary standing committee has recommended the assigning of the Minority status to Kashmiri Pandits. Both Jawaharlal Nehru and Indira Gandhi used to be Kashmiri Pandits and Rajiv Gandhi one half who breathed their last as Prime Ministers and leader of the opposition respectively. A good number of Kashmiri Pandits have been elevated as Army chiefs, Diplomats, Prominent Journalists, Jurists and Film stars and such things.

One other example is that the refugee Pandits from POK (Azad Kashmir) are likely (a proposal from NDA Govt) to be made as members of Parliament and legislature and nominated 24 seats from amongst them.

Even though the list of 500 prominent communities in the Social life of America the contribution of Gujarathi Patels are listed in 300 in the social hierarchy and similarly on 24th of 30 such groups in England’s social Hierarchy. The wealthiest and strongest Patels (Pattedars) are likely to be inducted into the list of OBC by our Govt which in reality is a disgrace.

Vasundhara Raje Govt has already assigned 50% of total demands of otherwise violent mighty Gujjars agitated under its leader Col. Kirori Singh Bainsala for being treated as Tribals at Rajasthan. Lesser said about the wealthiest land holder “Kaapu” community in Andhra Pradesh also demand for OBC status.

No doubt true that the above mentioned groups have proved themselves to be inimical towards general population of the Nation but be assured that Codavas shall never follow the foot prints of those groups and nothing would be geo paradized should we be included in the Tribal list.

With a solitary intention of protecting our land and acquire all such amenities as employment, education and financial reservations and the like we are determined to advance our claim for being included in the Tribal list at once, better during the ongoing parliamentary session we insist the Union Govt to place a Bill in that regard. Unless that is done one must know that Codavas will become a group like Kurdish & yezidi communities of Middle - East and Pandits of Kashmir.

4. Codava thakk should be included in the 8th schedule of our Constitution. Codava Thakk / Codava Language is as ancient as human civilization is rich and living spoken language throughout the history fit enough to be included in the 8th schedule of our Constitution. We propose to cite MANORAMA YEAR BOOK 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017 continuously documented and which mentions about the 16 popular languages of our Country which includes Codava language to strengthen our claim – Manorama year book page 680 - Other Popular Languages 1. Angika 2. Awadhi 3. Bhojpuri 4. Bundeli 5. Chhatisgarhi 6. Hariyanavi 7. Hinduatani 8. Kanauji 9. Magadhi 10. Marwari 11. Bhili 12. Gondi 13. Kodava 14. Kutchi 15. Thulu 16. Mahi.

PS:- The Constitution (Amendment) Bill, 2016 (amendment of the Eighth Schedule) & The Constitution (Amendment) Bill, 2016 (insertion of new article 338B) Private member Bill moved by Mr. B.K Hariprasad regarding the inclusion of Codava Thakk in the 8th Schedule of our Constitution. On behalf of Codava Race CNC congratulates him whole heartedly. We are happy to announce our having met Sri. B.K Hariprasad MP at his residence in New Delhi on 01-11-2016 and explained him about our movement and all our demands including the demand for the incorporation of Codava Thakk in the 8th Schedule of our Constitution congratulated him for having taken Codava Thakk for the inclusion of 8th schedule in our Constitution.

5. Protect our land tenure under article 371 of our Constitution with inner line permit on the lines of North - East States of India. Protect our Land tenure under article 371 of our Constitution: (Inner Line Permit) The provisions of article 371 of our Constitution with inner line permit should be made applicable to Kodagu region at once as has been done in relation to Manipur and other North Eastern states. With a solitary intention of protecting our land from alienation and protecting our demography and such a thing called as “inner line permit”. Important factor is that large number of underworld dons particularly Dawood Ibhrahim ( D Company), regular miscreants with harden criminality, and business Tycoons from across the Country with the active support and assistance from Hawala agencies and fake currency racketeers have been grabbing lands in the this District. With a major idea of protecting lands in the district and the interest of the natives the promulgation of such stringent law within Coorg is warranted.

6. Exclusive Codava nominated representation in the Parliament and Assembly on the lines of Anglo Indians should be given under article 331 of our Constitution.

7. Devatt Paramb massacre – a tragic human holocaust in the mankind – We Insist for National Memorial / Monument of that Memorial on the lines of Jallianwala Bagh in memory of Amritsar Massacre and this tragedy should be included in the International Holocaust remembrance list of UNO. And International Holocaust Museum should be established in memory of those Codava families (approximately 60 thousand unarmed Codavas) who were massacred by Tyrant Tippu sultan of Mysore and his rapacious soldiers, along with ruthless his French East India Company allied forces, after 32 continuous invasions tippu got defeated by Codava warriors disappointing in this insult he conspired to eliminate entire Codava martial tribal race, cunningly invited them for a grand feast in the pretext of entering a friendly treaty with Codavas at Devatt Paramb in the year 1785 13 December. This heinous inhuman tragic genocide/holocaust in the mankind happened in this place. – But their great souls are still alive in Devatt Paramb.

8. Under Indian Arms act 1959 section 3 & 4 for carry and posses fire arms by Codavas and Jamma holders should be continued and protected for ever without any hindrance.

9. Demand for the implementation of the recommendations made by Constitution review Commission of India on the insistence of Codava National Council for the creation of Coorg Development Board under article 371 of (Please note: Chapter 8 Union State relation 8.23.1 of CRC report) as has been done in relation to touching Hyderabad Karnataka Region - appropriate amendment to the Constitution is desirable at once.

10. Codava Race should be globally recognized on par with Jews, Parsis, Sindhi, Yezidi, Kurdi, Baloch and Pastun etc.

11. Micro Minority Ethno cultural Codava tribal race should be included in the intangible cultural heritage list of UNESCO.

12. Demand for permanent deployment of NIA (National Investigating Agency) and RA&W agencies, and this demand is recently incorporated along with the other 11 demands.

Our demand No. 12 mentioned above pertains to the expected threat from global radical Islamic Terrorism and transformation of Kodagu into Psychopathic ISIS ‘Ghazwa –E- Hind’ Green Corridor and Naxal Maoist Red corridor should be curtailed, by permanently deploying NIA and RA&W agencies in Kodagu (Coorg) should such a thing be carried out. Please be assured that the residence here will be able to breathe fearlessly and the interest of National security and oneness will be protected forever. The above mentioned 12 demands certainly do require immediate consideration.

Codava Declaration

It would be right if Coorg is termed as Gods own paradise on earth) Codagu stands next only to that of Isthanbul in world should Codava Land of Coorg be classified as Union Territory. It is very easy to take these features to be the main budgetary base for the maintenance and management of the Union Territories sought to be created. No doubt the actual money supply is addressed to the Union Governament and it is just practical to understand the money shall be allotted from the Union Government to this region ( Coorg) should it become a separate U.T. and unconnected with the State of Karnataka.

Hence C.N.C demands for the immediate creation of Codava Land Union Territory in the interest of justice and equity.

The very notion of Republic in India is incomplete unless & until Codava Land UT and Codava Land Autonomy is established at once, and all the 12 demands as advanced by CNC should be provided with Constitutional guarantee and we unhesitatingly insist that

Press Release – Press Conference- For the Kind Publication

Republic Day (23rdAnnual Sathyagraha) sathyagraha by CNC Volunteers on 26-01-2017 starts from 10.30 until 12.30 noon.

The very notion of Republic in India is incomplete unless & until Codava Land UT and Codava Land Autonomy is established at once, and all the 12 demands as advanced by CNC should be provided with Constitutional guarantee and we unhesitatingly insist that we would continue our struggle. We will register our protest symbolically on 26-01-2017 at Madikeri Kodagu, in DC’s premises. We only hope that Codava land UT and autonomy becomes a reality and facilitate Codavas to participate in all such celebrations as they should be; and we hope that the actual bed rock will be very soon and create an atmosphere to enjoy the concept of meaningful republic.

Codava Declaration

Charter of Demands:-

1. We demand a permanent political package to grant Codava land with Union Territory status for Coorg under articles 2 & 3 of our Constitution.

2. Autonomy to Codava land under the 6th schedule of our Constitution. On the lines of Gorkhaland & Bodoland and Ladakh Buddhist Autonomous council and hill Autonomous councils of North Eastern regions.

3. Incorporate Codava Martial tribal Race in the Schedule list of our Constitution under articles 340 and 342 of our Constitution. We demand Tribal status to Codavas by race under articles 340 – 342 of our Constitution. We take pleasure to remind the Govt about the inclusion of Jain Community as religious minority even though they are known to be the wealthiest people in India besides being Hindus in real sense. Jaats are also granted OBC status despite the fact that they are economically, politically and socially most affluent class of people spread over in 9 states of our country. The Rajasthan state has granted Tribal Status to violent Gujjars whose numbers exceeds 8crore in the country. Even though Codavas by Race historically are known to be a Martial Class in Nature and numbering a meager 1 ½ lakhs population and that no other class of people would be affected or Jeoparadise if we are granted with Tribal status. PS. Unlike Zoroastrians who are scattered everywhere in the Nation besides being the richest and prominent in the judiciary, Industrial arena and in general activities besides being most Cosmopolitan and urbane. They have a separate religion of their own called Zoroastrianism unlike Codavas who are rustic by nature confined to Kodagu /Coorg region. Hence Tribal status is fittest for them.

To quote a few examples the Jains, the conscious keepers & the soul of Hindu religion & the wealthiest community in India has been assigned with religious minority status by Second UPA Govt in the year 2013. The Parliamentary standing committee has recommended the assigning of the Minority status to Kashmiri Pandits. Both Jawaharlal Nehru and Indira Gandhi used to be Kashmiri Pandits and Rajiv Gandhi one half who breathed their last as Prime Ministers and leader of the opposition respectively. A good number of Kashmiri Pandits have been elevated as Army chiefs, Diplomats, Prominent Journalists, Jurists and Film stars and such things.

One other example is that the refugee Pandits from POK (Azad Kashmir) are likely (a proposal from NDA Govt) to be made as members of Parliament and legislature and nominated 24 seats from amongst them.

Even though the list of 500 prominent communities in the Social life of America the contribution of Gujarathi Patels are listed in 300 in the social hierarchy and similarly on 24th of 30 such groups in England’s social Hierarchy. The wealthiest and strongest Patels (Pattedars) are likely to be inducted into the list of OBC by our Govt which in reality is a disgrace.

4. Codava thakk should be included in the 8th schedule of our Constitution. Codava Thakk / Codava Language is as ancient as human civilization is rich and living spoken language throughout the history fit enough to be included in the 8th schedule of our Constitution. We propose to cite MANORAMA YEAR BOOK 2015 which mentions about the 16 popular languages of our Country which includes Codava language to strengthen our claim – Manorama year book page 680 - Other Popular Languages 1. Angika 2. Awadhi 3. Bhojpuri 4. Bundeli 5. Chhatisgarhi 6. Hariyanavi 7. Hinduatani 8. Kanauji 9. Magadhi 10. Marwari 11. Bhili 12. Gondi 13. Kodava 14. Kutchi 15. Thulu 16. Mahi.

PS:- The Constitution (Amendment) Bill, 2016 (amendment of the Eighth Schedule) & The Constitution (Amendment) Bill, 2016 (insertion of new article 338B) Private member Bill moved by Mr. B.K Hariprasad regarding the inclusion of Codava Thakk in the 8th Schedule of our Constitution. On behalf of Codava Race CNC congratulates him whole heartedly. We are happy to announce our having met Sri. B.K Hariprasad MP at his residence in New Delhi on 01-11-2016 and explained him about our movement and all our demands including the demand for the incorporation of Codava Thakk in the 8th Schedule of our Constitution congratulated him for having taken Codava Thakk for the inclusion of 8th schedule in our Constitution.

5. Protect our land tenure under article 371 of our Constitution with inner line permit on the lines of North - East States of India. Protect our Land tenure under article 371 of our Constitution: (Inner Line Permit) The provisions of article 371 of our Constitution with inner line permit should be made applicable to Kodagu region at once as has been done in relation to Manipur and other North Eastern states. With a solitary intention of protecting our land from alienation and protecting our demography and such a thing called as “inner line permit”. Important factor is that large number of underworld dons particularly Dawood Ibhrahim ( D Company), regular miscreants with harden criminality, and business Tycoons from across the Country with the active support and assistance from Hawala agencies and fake currency racketeers have been grabbing lands in the this District. With a major idea of protecting lands in the district and the interest of the natives the promulgation of such stringent law within Coorg is warranted.

6. Exclusive Codava nominated representation in the Parliament and Assembly on the lines of Anglo Indians should be given under article 331 of our Constitution.

7. Devatt Paramb massacre – a tragic human holocaust in the mankind – We Insist for National Memorial / Monument of that Memorial on the lines of Jallianwala Bagh in memory of Amritsar Massacre and this tragedy should be included in the International Holocaust remembrance list of UNO. And International Holocaust Museum should be established in memory of those Codava families (approximately 60 thousand unarmed Codavas) who were massacred by Tyrant Tippu sultan of Mysore and his rapacious soldiers, along with ruthless his French East India Company allied forces, after 32 continuous invasions tippu got defeated by Codava warriors disappointing in this insult he conspired to eliminate entire Codava martial tribal race, cunningly invited them for a grand feast in the pretext of entering a friendly treaty with Codavas at Devatt Paramb in the year 1785 13 December. This heinous inhuman tragic genocide/holocaust in the mankind happened in this place. – But their great souls are still alive in Devatt Paramb.

8. Under Indian Arms act 1959 section 3 & 4 for carry and posses fire arms by Codavas and Jamma holders should be continued and protected for ever without any hindrance.

9. Demand for the implementation of the recommendations made by Constitution review Commission of India on the insistence of Codava National Council for the creation of Coorg Development Board under article 371 of (Please note: Chapter 8 Union State relation 8.23.1 of CRC report) as has been done in relation to touching Hyderabad Karnataka Region - appropriate amendment to the Constitution is desirable at once.

10. Codava Race should be globally recognized on par with Jews, Parsis, Sindhi, Yezidi, Kurdi, Baloch and Pastun etc.

11. Micro Minority Ethno cultural Codava tribal race should be included in the intangible cultural heritage list of UNESCO.

12. Demand for permanent deployment of NIA (National Investigating Agency) and RA&W agencies, and this demand is recently incorporated along with the other 11 demands.

Our demand No. 12 mentioned above pertains to the expected threat from global radical Islamic Terrorism and transformation of Kodagu into Psychopathic ISIS Ghazwa –E- Hind Green Corridor and Naxal Maoist Red corridor should be curtailed, by permanently deploying NIA and RA&W agencies in Kodagu (Coorg) should such a thing be carried out. Please be assured that the residence here will be able to breathe fearlessly and the interest of National security and oneness will be protected forever. The above mentioned 12 demands certainly do require immediate consideration.

An Awareness programme at Kadanga

CNC held a Awareness programme at Kadanga V.S.S.N Hall on 18.01.2017, pressurizing the Govt to include Codava Tribal Race in the schedule list of our Constitution and we richly deserve such a treatment. One must know that the Mongol idée groups residing in the North Eastern states of India are have been included in the schedule list of our Constitution. While delivering the key note address CNC President Mr. N.U Nachappa Codava informed that all those Mongol idée groups are filthy rich holding extensive landed properties and that they are highly educated, cultured and civilized, they are clannish in heritage and they remind any of Codava trait. Mr Nachappa further also informed that all these Mongol idée groups have connections with London, all the cities such as Imphal, Dimapur, Itanagar, Izwal & Shilong are most fashionable cities.

The important personages from such tribal groups including former Loksabha speaker Late Sri. P.A Sangma, (Gharo tribe) former Chief Minister of Arunachal Pradesh Gegong Apang (Adhi tribe), Union MOS Home Minister Mr. Kiron Rijiju (Monpa Tribe) and former North Bangalore MP and retired Police chief Mr. Sangliana (Mizo Tribe). Mr Gegong Apang is known to own 30,000 hectares of tea plantations in Arunachal Pradesh, Codavas do not have any grouse against them. To mention 3 examples of Karnataka heavy weight Politicians M/s Sri Ramalu, Balachandra Jarki Holi and Sathish Jarki Holi, they are known to possess and own extensive properties and the properties these 3 holds and no Codava equals them in richness they too are included in the tribal list (Nayakas). Interestingly enough Senior statesmen of Jharkhand struggle and legendary Munda Tribal leader Major Jaipal Singh Munda who was also a friend of Jawahar Lal Nehru was an Oxford Graduate during the beginning of 20th Century itself, and his community is having a tribal tag. (A lot of India’s wealthy men belong to ST category, including the Mysore Maharaja, Yadhuvir Raja Vodeyars wife’s family from Rajastan. They infact happened to belong to the royal dynasty. Did this mean they gave up ST privilege?)

Less than 50 IAS & IPS officials are employed in Karnataka Govt service from Meena tribe, added to it a good majority of bureau crates elsewhere in India and as well as in Govt of India service belongs to Meena tribe of Rajasthan. Each of them are well educated, very handsome, and highly cultured besides being land holders, even they are also considered as scheduled tribes under the Constitution example, IAS Officers M/s Bharath Lal Meena & Prabhu Dayal Meena. Unless Codava tribals are included in the schedule list of our Constitution one must remember that Kodagu will become a part and parcel of Maoist Red Corridor and ISIS Ghazwa – Tur - Hind Green Corridor on account of our Marginalization. These Maoist and ISIS are trying to oust Codavas from their soil and they attempted to de-legitimize Codava existence. With such a determination to oust Codavas from their Homeland (Coorg) are trying hard to achieve their illegitimate evil desire. All Codavas should be very careful and oppose such a draconian move with strong determination. Without any hesitation and without mentioning the literary qualification and land holdings Codavas should be included in the schedule list of our Constitution and we fulfill all such criterions. Our unique language Codava Thakk, Customary practice, age old folk legal system, Birth and Death Ceremony, marriage, clannish/Khandan system besides we live in a hilly terrain besides hunting and participating wars from time immeorial are the tribal traits and we deserve such things.

Should Codavas included in the schedule list under Articles 340&342 of our Constitution the entire Coorg Dist. i.e the traditional homeland/Habitation of Codava Tribals will be considered under the 6th schedule of our Constitution and will be recognized as Codava land Autonomous region, Mr. Nachappa said.

Dear Editor

For the Kind Publication – Press Release 13-01-2017

An awareness Human Chain program regarding Codava Tribal existence and demand for statutory guarantee enshrined in the Constitution.

In furtherance of our desired and well deserved program of attaining and Statutory protection for our identity of Aboriginal Micro minority Codava Tribal Race and inclusion of the same in the schedule list as enshrined in the Constitution of India under Articles 340&342 and International covenants on human rights maintained by the UNO & inclusion of Codava Micro Minority Tribe in the intangible Cultural Heritage list of UNESCO, and also Maoists & ISIS elements have jointly hatched a conspiracy to transform Coorg (Codava Land) into their Red Corridor & Ghazwa-Tur-Hind Green Corridor – a dangerous dead lock. Hence protect Codava Tribal Race from Maoists and ISIS onslaught – and accord Constitutional protection for aboriginal indigenous codava tribal race.

Our organization CNC (Codava National Council) is making preparation to do awareness program of the very purpose of such things. We desire to expose and explain in detail about the paramount importance of our demand for inclusion of Codava Tribal Race in the Constitution would be heralded and also to discuss about such other tribal entities in the Nation and across the world.

Press release

CNC’s awareness meeting regarding the inclusion of Codava Race in the Tribal list of our Constitution & curb the Maoist Red Corridor plan and ISIS Gazwa – Tur- Hind corridor conspiracy - Meeting held at Kirgoor Oor Mandh on 02-01-2017.

CNC President Mr. Nachappa spoke about the current pressing issues in Coorg including the new threat of naxalism and global radical terrorism, ie. proposed Ghazwa-Tur-Hind corridor, issue of influx of illegal immigrants from Assam and Bangladesh he also highlighted the important issues of Codavaland faces and the need for the government to grant protection for codava tribals by including in the scheduled list of our constitution, autonomy as per the VI schedule of the Constitution and the inclusion of Codava thak in the VIII schedule. Mr. Bachinadanda Giri presided over the programme. Mr. Nachappa further said that these anti National Elements taking undue advantage of the Diddalli Issue and without ever trying to do any harm to big outside estate owners including Dawood Ibhrahim and others with a solitary intention of extending their red corridor and Gazwa – Tur – Hind Green Corridor activities are intend to oust indigenous Codavas, and Codava Ex-Army people and such other locals. One example that we may quote is the institution of Criminal case against Ex-army personals in Ammathi by the District Administration under the influence of these ISIS and Maoist elements and try to enter such properties with such an intention are influencing Governmental agencies to get the Codava lands owned by Ex service men (particularly Pattada Karumbaiah and Dilip Kariappa bearing Sy.No 151 in Kuliyadi village Ammathi Panchayat). Certain Anti National elements are trying to influence governmental authorities and fraudulent officers in order to facilitate these Anti National elements to grab such properties. Not surprisingly these people not attempted to get the lands owned and encroached by the 300 and odd big outside company so far. This has to be called a stop to at once.

Maoists & ISIS elements have jointly hatched a conspiracy to transform Coorg (Codava Land) into their Red Corridor & Ghazwa-Tur-Hind Green Corridor – a dangerous dead lock.

Protect Codava Tribal Race from Maoists and ISIS onslaught – and accord Constitutional protection for aboriginal indigenous codava tribal race.

MEMORANDUM

Dear Sir/Madam,

Subject : Maoists & ISIS elements have jointly hatched a conspiracy to transform Coorg (Codava Land) into their Red Corridor & Ghazwa-Tur-Hind Green Corridor – a dangerous dead lock.

We are staging a Sathygraha on 05-01-2017 to demand the Govt to curb the Naxalite and ISIS presence in Coorg, to safe guard the interests of indigenous Codava tribes; hence it is warranted to protect and include Codava tribals in the schedule list of our constitution.

Protect Codava Tribal Race from Maoists and ISIS onslaught – and accord Constitutional protection for aboriginal indigenous codava tribal race.

Reference : Agitation by the Imposter Adhivasis at Diddalli protected forest (Buffer zone) of Coorg in Karnataka. The entire fake tribal protest was orchestrated by ISIS & Maoists elements.

Chief architects of agitation are Maoists and International radical terrorists- actual facts- regarding. Convert Coorg into Red Corridor and ‘Ghazwa-tur-hind’ (Ghazwa-E-Hind) Green Corridor-Investigation by NIA and (R&AW or RAW) Agencies demanded.

Precisely, this representation is in respect of the intended conversion of Coorg (Kodagu) into a Red Corridor & Ghazwa-Tur-Hind Corridor by the Maoists and such other international radical terrorist agents called ISIS. The people who identify themselves to be Adhivasi tribals of Kodagu in actual fact are not locals. They are by available information, they are outsiders. Particularly Assam, Orrisa, Waynad, Chattisghar, HD Kote, Kundapur, Beltangadi, Raichur, Coimbatore, Bangalore, Telengana, etc.

Few of them working in Tata (The erst while Consolidated Coffee Ltd), BBTC, (Bombay Burma Trading Corporation) owned by Nusli wadia the grandson of founding father of Pakistan Mohammed Ali Jinha, Burma indentured policy settlers estates and other outside business tycoons spread in Kodagu.

A new trend prevailing in Tata Coffee Estate and BBTC is that whenever someone retires or leaves the job, owner refuses to employ the children of such persons but instead they go for cheap laborers from Assam, Bangladesh, Orrisa and such other places. None of the Erstwhile laborers are ones who are employed there cannot claim themselves to be the legitimate residents of Kodagu or Forestry in Kodagu at any given time. One must know that the ancient tribals of the place are Codavas only. The Maoisits and ISIS are trying to exploit the situation and marginalized indegionous Codava tribals and try to suppress the entire community once and for all. None of the fellows who used to be working under Tatas and such other more than 300 companies as are mentioned above are against Tatas, BBTCs, and such other outside company estates around Coorg.

The chief perpertrators who have designed the idea are undoubtedly M/S Gawri Lankesh (GhoriLampate) fifth columnist A.K. Subbaih @ Mapla Subbaih, 2Siri Mane Nagraj, Noorshridhar, Nalini and film star Chetan a protégé of underworld don Agni Shridhar except monster and lunatic A.K Subbaih none other mentioned above are locals and they are definetly from other places (like Bangalore, Chikkmagalore, Shimoga, Raichur and Beltangadi). They are brought and imported working class people from Kundapur, Woyanad, Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh and such other places and dumped them in the Diddalli Protected Buffer Zone forest a few days ago. In fact, Diddalli area is a dense forest coming under Buffer Zone of Nagrahole National Park. To leave alone such people, not a single human being has ever resided in Diddalli Forest until a fortnight back. The media exposition that such people are living at Diddalli forest during the past 1000s of years is without doubt a false and anomalous trend.

The information what we now received suggests that about 577 families from outside have been dumped by these Maoists gangs in Diddali forest, each and every one of the gang are definetly outsiders and Naxlite & ISIS Agents.

A few innocent people are being projected as group leaders/human shield, except perhaps 30 families of the total 577 each and every one of them have own properties and residential house buildings.

In Diddalli Racket, Naxalites & ISIS duo have kept one Appaji in forefront who is known for his notoriety i.e poaching, timber smuggling, sand smuggling etc. he has property to the extent of 10-15 acres of Coffee estates and owns 4-5 four wheelers. He black mails poor gullible people and keeps their Ration cards, ID’s with him and avails all facilities for poor people envisaged by the Govt through those ration Cards. Appaji is hand in glow with forest officials and by possessing Govt Lands RTC’s he sells forest land to different people. Hence CNC urges CBI investigation regarding these land racket.

One of the leaders of the supposed agitation is Maoist activists Sirimane Nagaraj who has been propagating about the Diddalli incident and with a solitary intention of earning fast bucks. He has requested general public to contribute liberally to the movement added to it is a known fact, that said terrorist agents get money and such other support from China and such other hostile countries particularly from Pakistan. Added to it, hand bills of Naxlite theme and other connected anti-national literatures are being circulated here. Their proposal is to extend their area of operation from “Sayadri” mountains of western ghat range crossing Coorg touching Woyand and Silent Valley and Mudumalai of Tamil Nadu, and they definetly do not complain against Tatas and such other business tycoons and MNCs and NRI houses in any manner.

Their main idea & target is to oust CodavaTribals from our homeland. Unless Codava Tribals are removed and routed out once for all from Coorg, they cannot imagine implanting themselves as tribes/Naxals/ISIS in Coorg.

Not surprisingly none of the 300 odd big outsider business houses/companies owned by big business tycoons NRIs and Hawala rocketeers and underworld dons who possess 60% properties here are addressed any threat by these Naxalite groups, but they threatened only Codava tribes here. They had addressed threat letters only to Codavas in the year 2008. Such drama has been played by “Kuki infiltrators” from Burma in Arunachal Pradesh against aboriginal indigenous tribes of Arunacha Pradesh in 1991 when Mr. P.V. Narasimha Rao was helming the nation and Mr. Gegeong- Apang was in the helm of affairs of Arunachal Pradesh but they failed. One other such attempt is being carried out by “The Rohingya” infiltrators from Myanmar in North-Eastern states of india against the historically known ethnic tribes of that land, the way Diddalli transaction is being attempted to.

Therefore, we request you to investigate into the whole episode at once and unearth the prime purpose behind Diddalli incident and the actual cancerous group including the above mentioned 6 perpetrators and their criminal anti-national activities and subversive theories.

We also request you to unearth the actual brain behind the entire transaction, source of monetary flow, foreign terror links and the things linked with the demonetization and the actual loss these fellows have suffered.

Therefore, we hopefully request you to be good enough to direct the NIA (National Investigating Agency) and Research and Analysis Wing (R&AW or RAW) agencies and prosecute all the people involved in the shady drama and anti-national activities being carried out by the entire group. It would be better if they are rounded up and their properties seized and implicate them under National Security Act & POTA for their alleged involvement of treason and sedition. Better the yard stick used to eliminate Naxalite pests in West Bengal in 1970’s by the then Chief Minister Siddarth Shankar Ray is used for this purpose also to eliminate the Mao infiltrators and Ghazwa-Tur-Hind ISIS terroists.

Maoists and ISIS are trying to convert Coorg as their safe heaven under the guise of red Corridor and Ghazwa-Tur-Hind corridor. But the main hurdle for their evil design are the aboriginal indigenous Codava tribes. That’s why they are trying to erase the very identities and identity markers of Codava tribes and they are trying to take away the Constitutional rights of Codava tribes. Their Modus operandi is to defeat the existence and continuation of the CNC, the only irrepressible voice of Codava World. These Anti National subversive elements have been following the Codava Tribes and their struggle like shadows and night mares for 30 years.

Ex.1: 2 Decades ago the same elements objected and disrupted the proposed concept of “World Codovology Study centre” contemplated by CNC at Codava Kundh.

Ex.2: They even objected to the prominence given to the “Devattparamb Memorial monument” within the area of meager 30 cents, where thousands of innocent Codava Tribesmen butchered and massacred by Tyrant Tippu Sultan and French East India Company allied forces in the year 1785. Only in order to make the entire Kodagu region (Coorg) their area of operation. Unless they succeeded in getting de-legitimising aboriginal indigenous Codava tribe in its entirety, in Coorg, they cannot (the Naxalites & ISIS) dream of implanting themselves in Kodagu in any manner.

In 1785, the tyrant ruler of Mysore, Tippu Sultan, cunningly and cowardly massacred thousands of Codava Warrior tribesmen at Devatt Paramb where in which we erected the memorial monument to offer tribute to the departed souls. But the above said treacherous elements destroyed the memorial monument.

Ex.3: We are demanding for the inclusion of Codava Tribal Race in the schedule list of our Constitution. The Govt has taken cognizance to our legitimate claim and on 16-11-2016 had started an exclusive Ethnographic survey of the Codava tribals, but which has been stopped by the Maoists and ISIS elements. Their main intention is to de-legitimize Codava tribal existence (It is a known fact that the said elements are behind the stoppage of “Ethnographic survey of micro minority Codava race”).

We may be permitted to recall that The intelligence Agencies having unearth the facts about Naxalites having reached Kodagu from all different parts of our country (Orissa, Chattisgarh, Wayanad, Buxar, West Bengal, Tripura and Tamil Nadu) only on that basis 144 section of CRPC has been imposed and also implanted CCTV camera footages.

What may be considered as the main instigation for outsiders to rush into Diddalli region was the un-intentional mistake of the government of Karnataka committed a few weeks back when it announced through its revenue minister Mr. Kagadu Timmappa about its readiness to rehabilitate landless people in Diddalli Protected forest. In fact, such a thing was done by Naxal & ISIS mafia active in Bangalore. The moment the announcement was made they have informed Naxalite backed tribal people and radical ISIS elements elsewhere in India to rush to Diddalli region to seek land grants. Such an instigation made regular goondas to come to the place they include schedule caste members and religious minorities from different parts of our country infested like serpents in the grass. None of the fellows who claimed land grant under the guise of tribal protection have ever seen Diddali a month back.

The immediate result is the tranquility and peace spoiled in the district due to Tippu Jayanthi issue had come to normalcy very recently, is but the ever cramming for the fresh issue to spoil the peace and tranquility in Coorg. “Diddalli” issue prompted these Naxals and ISIS serpents they are vehement in doing their intentional criminal act of de-stabilization in the district. Added to it the demonetization of 500/1000 rupees currency by The Modi government has caused these Naxalite groups who are known to have amassed huge wealth by illegal methods to lose the entire bulk of money they have collected through extortion with an intention to divert the attention of the government and also to avoid the raiding of respective places where such illegal wealth could be understood to be stored. In order to recompense their illegally gained money they are trying to gather new avenues for monetary supply. To quote a single example, Sirimane Nagaraj the known brain and main actor of the entire conspiracy is canvasing for remittance of money through whatsapp and his bank account is with A/c No of Samanathegaagi Janandholana – 64194594095, SBM, Kamblikoppa Branch, Sagar Branch Code – 41164, IFSC Code – SMBY0041164 Sagar in Shimoga.

Better always their bank account be blocked and amounts in deposits be confiscated besides arresting the man.

If the said is the strategic supporter for the issue in question, Gowri Lankesh, A.K. Subbaih duo to try their best to influence the media persons and misguide bureaucracy and political circle in Bangalore. Added to it the chief financial infrastructure and logistic support and such other immediate support being provided by ISIS de-facto groups such as SDPI, KFD and PFI parties. One can pursue the guilt if one watches innumerable expensive vehicles were moving in the region all owned by these SDPI, KFD and PFI parties. The main intention of the SDPI, KFD and PFI parties to support these Naxal elements to create their Green Corridor in Coorg – i.e., Ghazwa-Thur-Hind in fact, protected forests should be kept free from the entry of anyone and the forest department should keep permanent vigil in the area. Strangely enough the people who claim to have gained entry to the protected forest have been supported by forest officials by demanding and accepting money and this should be investigated into at once.

Maybe the fellows are using the region to manufacture illegal arms, petrol bombs in the region and terrorizing messages are being sent. The CCTV cameras installed in the region recently should be continued throughout the clock and continuation of the imposition of prohibitory order under section 144 of CRPC in the region should be continued. The anti-naxal squad camping in the region should be continued in the region.

We are requesting you to be good enough to direct all the concerned to install CCTV cameras throughout the border areas and check posts in the districts and cause inspection of all the vehicles moving there through should be caused through thorough checking in order to save human lives. Unless that is done the region will become another Chattisgarh under the hands of Naxalites where people, politicians are being killed by serial bombings. Coorg being a hilly region it is easier for them to hide themselves and do and cause done all illegal activities including manufacture of bombing and such other nefarious activities.

Already such enigmatic criminal activities such as petrol bombing, robbery, docaity, rape, kidnapping and cold-blooded murder are being carried out in the district. None of the pressures demand such things connected to Diddalli region as indigenous character as such no political package including land grants and other monetary support to anyone in the region but safer side the entire circumstance surgical operation in order to eliminate such illegal anti nation elements in the region as did SS Ray in west Bengal in the larger interest.

Kodagu (Coorg) will become yet another Turkey, Zurich, Berlin, Paris and Jordan where thousands of innocent people lost their lives in bombing by ISIS recently. Their cruel inhuman act is seen everywhere across the world in general and European countries in particular. The Hon’ble Former Union Foreign Minister Mr. Vidyacharan Shukla and many other innocent people died in serial bombings by Maoists in Chattisgarh. We demand for the very same stringent action as did by Mr. Siddarth Shankar Ray to eliminate Naxalites in west Bengal is requested here in order to eliminate such illegal Anti National Elements in this region, in the ultimate interest of our Nation’s Security and sovereignty.

We are staging a Sathygraha on 05-01-2017 to demand the Govt to curb the Naxalite and ISIS presence in Coorg, to safe guard the interests of indigenous Codava tribes, hence it is warranted to include Codava tribals in the schedule list of our constitution.

P.S – 1 : The recently held ‘Buntamale’ conspiracy. The crest performance of Naxalite & ISIS groups intending to go deep into the life of Codava’s in particular & Codagu in General and destroy the peace & harmony, they have organized a meeting at ‘Buntamale’ ( the naxalite & ISIS groups have congregated from elsewhere in the nation on that occasion) wherein some concocted award has been given to the negative hero & monster A.K Subbaiah under the guise of Kuvempu National Award. This necessarily should be probed.

P.S – 2 : Our MLA Sri. K.G Bopaiah and MP Prathap Simha duo confirmed the ISIS and Naxal presence in Coorg. Even the Codagu District incharge Minister Mr. M.R Seetharam has spelled out the fear of Naxalites & radical ISIS presence in Codagu in the name of Diddalli. It should be seriously considered and all the necessary steps should be taken in order to curb and eliminate the naxalites & ISIS activities and the supposed actor A.K Subbaiah should also be punished.

MEMORANDUM

We are staging a Sathygraha on 05-01-2017 to demand the Govt to curb the Naxalite and ISIS presence in Coorg, to shape guard the interests of indigenous Codava tribes; hence it is warranted to protect and include Codava tribals in the schedule list of our constitution.

Subject- Agitation by the Imposter Adhivasis at Diddalli protected forest (Buffer zone) of Coorg in Karnataka.

Chief architects of agitation are Maoists and International radical terrorists- actual facts- regarding. Convert Coorg into Red Corridor and ‘Ghazwa-thur-hind’ Green Corridor-Investigation by NIA and RAW Agencies demanded.

Precisely, this representation is in respect of the intended conversion of Coorg (Kodagu) into a Red Corridor by the Maoists and such other international radical terrorist agents called ISIS. The people who identify themselves to be Adhivasitribals of Kodagu in actual fact are not locals. They are by available information, they are outsiders. Particularly Assam, Orrisa, Waynad, Chattisghar, HD Kote, Kundapur, Beltangadi, Raichur, Coimbatore, Bangalore, Telengana, etc.

Few of them working in Tata (consolidated coffee), BBTC, Burma chettiars estates and other outside business tycoons spread in Kodagu.

A new trend prevailing in Tata Coffee Estate and BBTC is that whenever someone retires or leaves the job, owner refuses to employ the children of such persons but instead they go for cheap laborers from Assam, Bangladesh, Orrisa and such other places. None of the Erstwhile laborers are ones who are employed there cannot claim themselves to be the legitimate residents of Kodagu or Forestry in Kodagu at any given time. One must know that the ancient tribals of the place are Codavas only. The Maoisits and ISIS are trying to exploit the situation and marginalized indegionous Codava tribals and try to suppress the entire community once and for all. None of the fellows who used to be working under Tatas and such other more than 300 companies as are mentioned above are against Tatas, BBTCs, and such other outside company estates around Coorg.

The chief perpertrators who have designed the idea are undoubtedly M/S Gawri Lankesh (GhoriLampate) fifth columnist A.K. Subbaih @ Mapla Subbaih, Siri Mane Nagraj, Noorshridhar, Nalini and film star Chetan, except lunatic A.K Subbaih none other mentioned above are locals and they are definetly from other places (like Bangalore, Chikkmagalore, Shimoga, Raichur and Beltangadi). They are brought and imported working class people from Kundapur, Woyanad, Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh and such other places and dumped them in the Diddalli Protected Buffer Zone forest a few days ago. In fact, Diddalli area is a dense forest coming under Buffer Zone of Nagrahole National Park. To leave alone such people, not a single human being has ever resided in Diddalli Forest until a fortnight back. The media exposition that such people are living at Diddalli forest during the past 1000s of years is without doubt a false and anomalous trend.

The information what we now received suggests that about 577 families from outside have been dumped by these Maoists gangs in Diddali forest, each and every one of the gang are definetly outsiders and Naxlite Agents.

A few innocent people are being projected as group leaders/human shield, except perhaps 30 families of the total 577 each and every one of them have own properties and residential house buildings.

In Diddalli Racket Naxalites have kept one Appaji in forefront who is known for his notoriety i.e poaching, timber smuggling, sand smuggling etc. he has property to the extent of 10-15 acres of Coffee estates and owns 4-5 four wheelers. He black mails poor gullible peoples and keeps their Ration cards, ID’s with him and avails all facilities for poor people envisaged by the Govt through those ration Cards. Appaji is hand in glow with forest officials with hand in glow. Govt lands RTC and by possessing these RTC’s he sells Govt land to different people. Hence CNC urges CBI investigation regarding these land racket.

One of the leaders of the supposed agitation is Maoist leader Sirimane Nagaraj who has been propagating about the Diddalli incident and with a solitary intention of earning fast bucks. He has requested general public to contribute liberally to the movement added to it is a known fact, that said terrorist agents get money and such other support from China and such other hostile countries particularly from Pakistan. Added to it, hand bills of Naxlite theme and other connected anti-national literatures are being circulated here. Their proposal is to extend their area of operation from “Sayadri” mountains of western ghat range crossing Coorg touching Woyand and Silent Valley and Mudumalai of Tamil Nadu, and they definetly do not complain against Tatas and such other business tycoons and MNCs and NRI houses in any manner.

Their main idea is to oust CodavaTribals from our homeland. Unless Codava Tribals are removed from Coorg, they cannot imagine implanting themselves as tribes/Naxals.

It is a known fact that the said elements are behind the stoppage of “Ethnographic survey of micro minority Codava race”.

They even objected to the prominence given to the “Devattparamb Memorial monument” within the area of meager 30 cents, where thousands of innocent Codava Tribesmen butchered and massacred by Tyrant Tippu Sultan and French East India Company allied forces in the year 1785. Only in order to make the entire Kodagu region (Coorg) their area of operation. Unless they succeeded in getting de-legitimising aboriginal indigenous Codava tribe in its entirety, in Coorg, they cannot (the Naxalites) dream of implanting themselves in Kodagu in any manner.

Not surprisingly none of the 300 odd big outsider business houses/companies owned by big business tycoons NRIs and Hawala rocketeers and underworld dons who possess 60% properties here are addressed any threat by these Naxalite groups, but they threatened only Codava tribes here. They had addressed threat letters only to Codavas in the year 2007. Such drama has been played by “Kuki infiltrators” from Burma yet Arunachal Pradesh against aboriginal indigenous tribes of Arunacha Pradesh in 1991 when Mr. P.V. Narasimha Rao helming the nation and Mr. Gegeong- Apang was in the helm of affairs of Arunachal Pradesh but they failed. One other such attempt is being carried out by “The Rohingya” infiltrators from Myanmar in North-Eastern states of india against the historically known ethnic tribes of that land, the way Diddalli transaction is being attempted to.

Therefore, we request you to investigate into the whole episode at once and unearth the prime purpose behind Diddalli incident and the actual cancerous group including the above mentioned 6 perpetrators and their criminal anti-national activities and subversive theories.

We also request you to unearth the actual brain behind the entire transaction, source of monetary flow, foreign terror links and the things linked with the demonetization and the actual loss these fellows have suffered.

Therefore, we hopefully request you to be good enough to direct the NIA and RAW agencies and prosecute all the people involves in the shady drama and anti-national activities being carried out by the entire group. It’d be better if they’re rounded up and their properties seized and implicate them under National Security Act and POTA for their alleged involvement of treason and sedition. Better the yard stick used to eliminate Naxalite pests in West Bengal in 1970’s by the then Chief Minister Siddarth Shankar Ray is used for this purpose also to eliminate the Mao infiltrators and Ghazwa-Thur-Hind ISIS terroists.

Maoists and ISIS are trying to convert Coorg as their safe heaven under the guise of red Corridor and Ghazwa-Tur-Hind corridor. But the main hurdle for their evil design are the aboriginal indigenous Codava tribes. That’s why they are trying to erase the very identities and identity markers of Codava tribes and they are trying to take away the Constitutional rights of Codava rights. Their Modus operandi is to defeat the existence and continuation of the CNC, the only irrepressible voice of Codava World. These Anti National subversive elements have been following the Codava Tribes and their struggle like shadows and night mares for 30 years.

Ex.1: 2 Decades ago the same elements objected and disrupted the proposed concept of “World Codovology Study centre” at Codava Kundh.

Ex.2: In 1785, the tyrant ruler of Mysore, Tippu Sultan, cunningly and cowardly massacred thousands of Codava Warrior tribesmen at Devatt Paramb where in which we erected the memorial monument to offer tribute to the departed souls. But the above said treacherous elements destroyed the memorial monument.

Ex.3: We are demanding for the inclusion of Codava Tribal Race in the schedule list of our Constitution. The Govt has taken cognizance to our legitimate claim and on 16-11-2016 had started an exclusive Ethnographic survey of the Codava tribals, but which has been stopped by the Maoists and ISIS elements. Their main intention is to de-legitimize Codava tribal existence.

We may be permitted to recall that The intelligence Agencies having unearth the facts about Naxalites having reached Kodagu from all different parts of our country (Orissa, Chattisgarh, Wayanad, Buxar, West Bengal, Tripura and Tamil Nadu) only on that basis 144 section of CRPC has been imposed and also implanted CCTV camera footages.

What may be considered as the main instigation for outsiders to rush into Diddalli region was the un-intentional mistake of the government of Karnataka committed a few weeks back when it announced through its revenue minister Mr. Kagadu Timmappa about it readiness to rehabilitate landless people in Diddalli Protected forest. In fact, such a thing was done Naxle mafia active in Bangalore. The moment the announcement was made thry have informed Naxalite backed tribal people and radical ISIS elsewhere in India to rush to Diddalli region to seek land grants. Such an instigation made regular goondas to come to the place they include schedule caste members and religious minority from different parts of our country infested like serpents in the grass. None of the fellows who claimed land grant under the guise of tribal protection have ever seen Diddali a month back.

The immediate result is the tranquility and peace spoiled in the district due to Tippu Jayanthi issue had come to normalcy very recently, is but the ever cramming for the fresh issue to spoil the peace and tranquility in Coorg. “Diddalli” issue prompted these Naxles and ISIS serpents they are vehement in doing their intentional criminal act of de-stabilization in the district. Added to it the demonetization of 500/1000 rupees currency by The Modi government has caused these Naxalite groups who are known to have amassed huge wealth by illegal methods to lose the entire bulk of money they have collected through extortion with an intention to divert the attention of the government and also to avoid the raiding of respective places where such illegal wealth could be understood to be stored. In order to recompense their illegally gained money they are trying to gather new avenues for monetary supply. To quote as single example, Sirimane Nagaraj the known brain and main actor of the entire episode is canvasing for remittance of money through whatsapp and his bank account is with___ with Sagar in Shimuga.

Better always his bank account be blocked and amounts in deposits be confiscated besides arresting the man.

If the said is the strategic supporter for the issue in question, Gowri Lankesh, A.K. Subbaih duo to try their best to influence the media persons and misguide bureaucracy and political circle in Bangalore. Added to it the chief financial infrastructure and logistic support and such other immediate support being provided by ISIS de-facto groups such as SDPI, KFD and PFI parties. You can pursue the guilt if you watch innumerable expensive vehicles were moving in the region all owned by these SDPI, KFD and PFI parties.

Annual colorful Puthari Public Celebrations held by C.N.C on morning hours of 13th Dec 2016 at Nandineravanda Uthappa’s Paddy Field in Chickabettageri Village of Kushalnagar – reg.

Press release Date :

13 Dec 2016

While extending our heart felt best wishes and greetings of the Annual Puthari Public Celebrations by CNC Codava National Council under its leadership of Mr. N. U. Nachappa Codava held at 10:30AM on 13th Dec 2016 in the Paddy Fields of Sri. Nandineravanda Uthappa of Chickabettageri Village, Kushalnagar, Codava Land of Coorg. We hereby explain you that all the connected rituals starting with ceremonial prayers to Codava Guru & Karona and all the deities followed by Nerekattuva rituals by 5 varieties of fresh leaves such as 1). Geri Thopp 2) Palchi Thopp 3) Mange Thopp 4) Kummi Thopp 5) Arali Thopp after which the ceremonial processions held accompanied by Kuthi, Thaliyathaki bolak , Dudikot Paat & Thok – Kathi to the Paddy Fields. Where the final ritual ceremony of cutting the fresh Kad held. There was variety of cultural entertainment i.e. Pareya Kali, Kolat & Valagathat immediately after the Kad Edpa ritual followed by Meedi Beppa ( offering oblation ) to Guru & Karona under Nellaki followed by tastee Codava cereal. The said celebrations are intended only to exhibit vibrant cultural heritage of Codava Warrior tribes from time immemorial and our unbreakable connection with the Codava Mother Soil.

P.S: On an average the Puthari Festival infact runs over 18 to 20 days from its commencement. Preparatory to the actual Puthari Celebrations the festivities starts with the initial ritual called Eedh(rehearsal of Kolaat & Paat ) ritual for 6 days in a respective mandhs of any given village. Then comes Kad Edpa ritual. The following day of the Puthari (1) Oor Mandh (2) Naad Mandh (3) Keri Mandh . Next after that every Kodava clannish Okka will hold Mane paat ritual . The ritual continues every clannish family holding such a thing one after other. If there be 10 Codava clannish family in a given village each of such families will hold Mane Paat one after other during 10 days. After the conclusion of Mane Paat ritual the grand finale would be with the Oororme programme where in which all Codava clannish families of any given village will participate. But unfortunately these things are not being observed stricto - sensu. This rich, ancient and vibrant ritual has become obsolete on account of the intentional suppressive mishandling by the successive Governments systematically after Coorg became merged with Karnataka in 1956. CNC has been trying to rejuvenate the near forgotten Codava Tribal ritual. We insist that the government at once should declare common holiday to the entire district for Puthari Festivities for a week.

The very purpose of our celebrating public Puthari is intended only to re-generate and transfer all our folkloric traditions and vibrant cultural heritage, mannerism & ancient Codava tribal trait to the next generation and all our Codava behavior shall continue forever and ever after until the existence of sun and moon. Added to it we are eager to watch such a day when all our demands touching Codava identity and self determination rights connected with our subject such as carving out of Union territory status for Codava land under articles 2 & 3 of our constitution, Codava land autonomous region under 6th schedule, Codava tribal race should be included in the articles 340 & 342 of our constitution, Codava Thakk should be included in the 8th schedule of our Constitution. Added to it micro minority Codava Racial tribe should be included in the intangible cultural heritage list of UNESCO.


26 th Codava National Day Celebration

21-11-2016

To whom so ever it may concern

Press release – Press Conference

I take pleasure to inform the general public about CNC having taken a decision to celebrate the 26 year of CNC’s existence and its relentless struggle for Codava land UT and allied subject and various demands and we celebrate 26th Codava National Day with usual vehemence and enthusiasm on 24-11-2016 at 10.30 a.m in Gandhi grounds Madikeri.

We are taking out a grand procession on main thorough fares of Madikeri before actually reaching the Gandhi grounds where celebrations would be done.

The cultural procession with Dudikott Paat will start from Gandhi grounds lead through main thorough fare towards private bus stand, Chowk and back to the venue.

Shri Deepak Thimmaiah the Senior Media person has accepted our invitation to be the guest of honor and others will speak followed by all the cultural rituals and activities connected with Codava folklore. A tasty Codava Cuisine will be served for lunch to all the participants.

A good majority of Codavas from all quarters of Kodagu have expressed their desire to participate actively in the celebrations. Needless to add that all our 11 prime demands would be re iterated and important Political resolutions would be passed to further activate our struggle.

Our demands are:-

we propose to highlight are as usual and they are:-

1. We demand a permanent political package to grant Codava land with Union Territory status for Coorg under articles 2 & 3 of our Constitution

.

2. Autonomy to Codava land under the 6th schedule of our Constitution. On the lines of Gorkhaland & Bodoland and Ladakh Buddhist Autonomous council and hill Autonomous councils of North Eastern regions.

3. Incorporate Codava Martial tribal Race in the Schedule list if our Constitution under articles 340 and 342 of our Constitution. We demand Tribal status to Codavas by race under articles 340 – 342 of our Constitution. We take pleasure to remind the Govt about the inclusion of Jain Community as religious minority even though they are known to be the wealthiest people in India besides being Hindus in real sense. Jaats are also granted OBC status despite the fact that they are economically, politically and socially most affluent class of people spread over in 9 states of our country. The Rajasthan state has granted Tribal Status to violent Gujjars whose numbers exceeds 8crore in the country. Even though Codavas by Race historically are known to be a Martial Class in Nature and numbering a meager 1 ½ lakhs population and that no other class of people would be affected or Jeoparadize if we are granted with Tribal status. PS. Unlike Zoroastrians who are scattered everywhere in the Nation besides being the richest and prominent in the judiciary, Industrial arena and in general activities besides being most Cosmopolitan and urbane. They have a separate religion of their own called Zoroastrianism unlike Codavas who are rustic by nature confined to Kodagu /Coorg region. Hence Tribal status is fittest for them. PS:- An exclusive ethnographic survey of Codava Race started as joint venture of Union & State Govt on the basis of relentless and purposeful effort made during past 16 years by CNC for the inclusion of Codava Tribal Race under articles 340 & 342 of our Constitution – survey operation started from Virajpet Taluk today i.e on 16-11-2016 and would last for 3 months – CNC insists all Codavas to be kind enough to Co-operate with Survey enumerators and it definitely end up with a great future to Codava Race in its entirety.

4. Codava thakk should be included in the 8th schedule of our Constitution. Codava Thakk / Codava Language is as ancient as human civilization is rich and living spoken language throughout the history fit enough to be included in the 8th schedule of our Constitution. We propose to cite MANORAMA YEAR BOOK 2015 which mentions about the 16 popular languages of our Country which includes Codava language to strengthen our claim – Manorama year book page 680 - Other Popular Languages 1. Angika 2. Awadhi 3. Bhojpuri 4. Bundeli 5. Chhatisgarhi 6. Hariyanavi 7. Hinduatani 8. Kanauji 9. Magadhi 10. Marwari 11. Bhili 12. Gondi 13. Kodava 14. Kutchi 15. Thulu 16. Mahi.

PS:- The Constitution (Amendment) Bill, 2016 (amendment of the Eighth Schedule) & The Constitution (Amendment) Bill, 2016 (insertion of new article 338B) Private member Bill moved by Mr. B.K Hariprasad regarding the inclusion of Codava Thakk in the 8th Schedule of our Constitution. On behalf of Codava Race CNC congratulates him whole heartedly. We are happy to announce our having met Sri. B.K Hariprasad MP at his residence in New Delhi on 01-11-2016 and explained him about our movement and all our demands including the demand for the incorporation of Codava Thakk in the 8th Schedule of our Constitution congratulated him for having taken Codava Thakk for the inclusion of 8th schedule in our Constitution.

5. Protect our land tenure under article 371 of our Constitution with inner line permit on the lines of North - East States of India. Protect our Land tenure under article 371 of our Constitution: (Inner Line Permit) The provisions of article 371 of our Constitution with inner line permit should be made applicable to Kodagu region at once as has been done in relation to Manipur and other North Eastern states. With a solitary intention of protecting our land from alienation and protecting our demography and such a thing called as “inner line permit”. Important factor is that large number of underworld dons particularly Dawood Ibhrahim ( D Company), regular miscreants with harden criminality, and business Tycoons from across the Country with the active support and assistance from Hawala agencies and fake currency racketeers have been grabbing lands in the this District. With a major idea of protecting lands in the district and the interest of the natives the promulgation of such stringent law within Coorg is warranted.

6. Exclusive Codava nominated representation in the Parliament and Assembly on the lines of Anglo Indians should be given under article 331 of our Constitution.

7. Devatt Paramb massacre – a tragic human holocaust in the mankind – We Insist for National Memorial / Monument of that Memorial on the lines of Jallianwala Bagh in memory of Amritsar Massacre and this tragedy should be included in the International Holocaust remembrance list of UNO. In memory of those Codava families (approximately 60 thousand unarmed Codavas) who were masssacred by Tyrant Tippu sulthan of Mysore and his rapacious soldiers, along with ruthless his French East India Company allied forces, after 32 continuous invasions tippu got defeated by Codava warriors disapointing in this insult he conspired to eliminate entire Codava martial tribal race, cunningly invited them for a grand feast in the pretext of entering a friendly treaty with Codavas at Devatt Paramb in the year 1785 13 December. This heinous inhuman tragic genocide/holocaust in the mankind happened in this place. – But their great souls are still alive in Devati Paramb.

8. Under Indian Arms act 1959 section 3 & 4 for carry and posses fire arms by Codavas and Jamma holders should be continued and protected for ever without any hindrance.

9. Demand for the implementation of the recommendations made by Constitution review Commission of India on the insistence of Codava National Council for the creation of Coorg Development Board under article 371 of (Please note: Chapter 8 Union State relation 8.23.1 of CRC report) as has been done in relation to touching Hyderabad Karnataka Region - appropriate amendment to the Constitution is desirable at once.

10. Codava Race should be globally recognized on par with Jews, Parsis, Sindhi, Yezidi, Kurdi, Baloch and Pastun etc.

11. Demand for permanent deployment of NIA (National Investigating Agency) and RA&W agencies, and this demand is recently incorporated along with the other 10 demands.

Our demand No. 11 mentioned above pertains to the expected threat from global radical Islamic Terrorism and transformation of Kodagu into ISIS and Naxal corridor should be curtailed, by permanently deploying NIA and RA&W agencies in Kodagu (Coorg) should such a thing be carried out. Please be assured that the residence here will be able to breathe fearlessly and the interest of National security and oneness will be protected forever. The above mentioned 11 demands certainly do require immediate consideration.

Annual Codava National Day is fixed to be held on 24-11-2016 at Gandhi grounds Madikeri at 10.30 a.m as we did earlier during the past 26 years without any break.

No wonder our above mentioned 1 to 11 demands will be accepted and achieved if only Codavas truly accompanied our organization.


Warning against proposal to build a dam across Kongana river in Kutthnaad of Virajpet Taluk, South Coorg.

Press release - press conference

21-11- 2016

To whom so ever it may concern

Warning against proposal to build a dam across Kongana river in Kutthnaad of Virajpet Taluk, South Coorg.

CNC vehemently opposes and decries the Rascalic proposal of the Govt of Karnataka known to be under the instigation of the Hunsur MLA Manjunath to build dam across Kongana River in Kutthaad of Virajet Taluk, South Coorg to cater water to Hunsur Taluk at the expense of entire South Coorg which admittedly is the main Codava habitation and prime Codava heartland. In reality the move if comes true will certainly prove itself to be very dangerous to the cultivators in South Kodagu and the entire region will submerge.

When such a proposal occurred once before in the year 2010 by the then irrigation Minister Mr. Basavaraj Bommai, CNC posed stern opposition and the matter was dropped at the point.

There seems to be a quixotic move by a good majority of officialdom hailing from neighboring districts are determined to ruin Kodagu ones and for all. Be it to be known to all, the entire Dist of Kodagu without any doubt opposes the said proposal and CNC is certain to lead the opposition in all manner whatever is accepted. Ironically the people at the helm of affairs are doing their worst to spoil the interest of Kodagu in order to cater water from gravity sources in Kodagu and prohibit the people of Kodagu using water especially from river Cauveri and its tributaries and it looks to be an unwritten law. Since it happens to be the prime catchment area of river Cauveri. Such and acts amounts to tyranny and violation of human rights.


26th Annual Codava National day to be held on 24-11-2016 at the Gandhi grounds Madikeri at 10.30 a.m.

Press Conference _ 13-11-2016

For the Kind Publication

To whom so ever it may concern

We have arranged 26th Annual Codava National day to be held on 24-11-2016 at the Gandhi grounds Madikeri at 10.30 a.m. and the demands we propose to highlight are as usual and they are:-

I am happy to inform the general public, Codavas in particular that the Delhi Chalo program was held under the aegis of CNC on 01-11-2016 for the 20th time successfully, and the entire show was a great success. The Sathyagraha could attract the attention of the entire Nation and the Govt of India (GOI) & Govt of Karnataka (GOK) also. We have submitted and forwarded a detailed Memorandum in this regard to the President of India, Premier of India, MHA of Union Govt of India and Secretary General of United Nations (UNO). CNC request all Codavas to join hands with it whole heartedly.

We have arranged 26th Annual Codava National day to be held on 24-11-2016 at the Gandhi grounds Madikeri at 10.30 a.m and the demands we propose to highlight are as usual and they are:-

1. We demand a permanent political package to grant Codava land with Union Territory status for Coorg under articles 2 & 3 of our Constitution.

2. Autonomy to Codava land under the 6th schedule of our Constitution. On the lines of Gorkhaland & Bodoland and Ladakh Buddhist Autonomous council and hill Autonomous councils of North Eastern regions.

3. Incorporate Codava Martial tribal Race in the Schedule list if our Constitution under articles 340 and 342 of our Constitution. We demand Tribal status to Codavas by race under articles 340 – 342 of our Constitution. We take pleasure to remind the Govt about the inclusion of Jain Community as religious minority even though they are known to be the wealthiest people in India besides being Hindus in real sense. Jaats are also granted OBC status despite the fact that they are economically, politically and socially most affluent class of people spread over in 9 states of our country. The Rajasthan state has granted Tribal Status to violent Gujjars whose numbers exceeds 8crore in the country. Even though Codavas by Race historically are known to be a Martial Class in Nature and numbering a meager 1 ½ lakhs population and that no other class of people would be affected or Jeoparadize if we are granted with Tribal status. PS. Unlike Zoroastrians who are scattered everywhere in the Nation besides being the richest and prominent in the judiciary, Industrial arena and in general activities besides being most Cosmopolitan and urbane. They have a separate religion of their own called Zoroastrianism unlike Codavas who are rustic by nature confined to Kodagu /Coorg region. Hence Tribal status is fittest for them.

4. Codava thakk should be included in the 8th schedule of our Constitution. Codava Thakk / Codava Language is as ancient as human civilization is rich and living spoken language throughout the history fit enough to be included in the 8th schedule of our Constitution. We propose to cite MANORAMA YEAR BOOK 2015 which mentions about the 16 popular languages of our Country which includes Codava language to strengthen our claim – Manorama year book page 680 - Other Popular Languages 1. Angika 2. Awadhi 3. Bhojpuri 4. Bundeli 5. Chhatisgarhi 6. Hariyanavi 7. Hinduatani 8. Kanauji 9. Magadhi 10. Marwari 11. Bhili 12. Gondi 13. Kodava 14. Kutchi 15. Thulu 16. Mahi.

5. Protect our land tenure under article 371 of our Constitution with inner line permit on the lines of North - East States of India. Protect our Land tenure under article 371 of our Constitution: (Inner Line Permit) The provisions of article 371 of our Constitution with inner line permit should be made applicable to Kodagu region at once as has been done in relation to Manipur and other North Eastern states. With a solitary intention of protecting our land from alienation and protecting our demography and such a thing called as “inner line permit”. Important factor is that large number of underworld dons particularly Dawood Ibhrahim ( D Company), regular miscreants with harden criminality, and business Tycoons from across the Country with the active support and assistance from Hawala agencies and fake currency racketeers have been grabbing lands in the this District. With a major idea of protecting lands in the district and the interest of the natives the promulgation of such stringent law within Coorg is warranted.

6. Exclusive Codava nominated representation in the Parliament and Assembly on the lines of Anglo Indians should be given under article 331 of our Constitution.

7. Devatt Paramb massacre – a tragic human holocaust in the mankind – We Insist for National Memorial / Monument of that Memorial on the lines of Jallianwala Bagh in memory of Amritsar Massacre and this tragedy should be included in the International Holocaust remembrance list of UNO. In memory of those Codava families (approximately 60 thousand unarmed Codavas) who were masssacred by Tyrant Tippu sulthan of Mysore and his rapacious soldiers, along with ruthless his French East India Company allied forces, after 32 continuous invasions tippu got defeated by Codava warriors disapointing in this insult he conspired to eliminate entire Codava martial tribal race, cunningly invited them for a grand feast in the pretext of entering a friendly treaty with Codavas at Devatt Paramb in the year 1785 13 December. This heinous inhuman tragic genocide/holocaust in the mankind happened in this place. – But their great souls are still alive in Devati Paramb.

8. Under Indian Arms act 1959 section 3 & 4 for carry and posses fire arms by Codavas and Jamma holders should be continued and protected for ever without any hindrance.

9. Demand for the implementation of the recommendations made by Constitution review Commission of India on the insistence of Codava National Council for the creation of Coorg Development Board under article 371 of (Please note: Chapter 8 Union State relation 8.23.1 of CRC report) as has been done in relation to touching Hyderabad Karnataka Region - appropriate amendment to the Constitution is desirable at once.

10. Codava Race should be globally recognized on par with Jews, Parsis, Sindhi, Yezidi, Kurdi, Baloch and Pastun etc.

11. Demand for permanent deployment of NIA (National Investigating Agency) and RA&W agencies, and this demand is recently incorporated along with the other 10 demands.

Our demand No. 11 mentioned above pertains to the expected threat from global radical Islamic Terrorism and transformation of Kodagu into ISIS and Naxal corridor should be curtailed, by permanently deploying NIA and RA&W agencies in Kodagu (Coorg) should such a thing be carried out. Please be assured that the residence here will be able to breathe fearlessly and the interest of National security and oneness will be protected forever. The above mentioned 11 demands certainly do require immediate consideration.

Annual Codava National Day is fixed to be held on 24-11-2016 at Gandhi grounds Madikeri at 10.30 a.m as we did earlier during the past 26 years without any break.

No wonder our above mentioned 1 to 11 demands will be accepted and achieved if only Codavas truly accompanied our organization.

Declare Codava Region in Coorg, Karnataka to be an Union Territory. i.e. Codava Land Union Territory under articles 2 & 3 of our Constitution since it fulfils all the required criterion and qualifications on par with the 11 points guideline prescrib

Press Conference Held at Mysore Press Club

30-10-2016

CAMP: Mysore

To Editor/Bureau Chief,

Dear Sir/Madam,

Codava Sathyagraha on 01 Nov 2016 at New Delhi

Sub: Under the aegis of (Codava National Council/CNC) Codava Codavathis Volunteers with their traditional attire squat in a Sathyagraha at Janthar Manthar, New Delhi , to pressurize our 25 years old demand for the establishment of Codava Land / Codava Sthan Union Territory Status to Coorg, now in Karnataka coupled with assigning Autonomous region, on 1 Nov 2016 and observation of Karnataka Rajyothsava Day as black day. All the participants will be travelling from different corners of Coorg District in South West Karnataka with an intention of taking part in the agitation in the manner of Sathyagraha. After the Sathyagraha we are presenting a detailed Memorandum to the Union Government of India. Program will commemorate from 9:30 AM and it terminates at 1:30 PM. We are struggling for a positive result touching our long pending demands as are mentioned below. Declaration of Codava Land U.T is warranted

MEMORANDUM

Respected Sirs, .

Sub: Declare Codava Region in Coorg, Karnataka to be an Union Territory. i.e. Codava Land
Union Territory under articles 2 & 3 of our Constitution since it fulfils all the required criterion and qualifications on par with the 11 points guideline prescribed in the Constitution of India with regard to the Constitution of Union Territories in India- request for. Without any need to introduce ourselves to be the one and the only organization established with the sole purpose of getting established Autonomous Codava Land, we take this opportunity to bring to your kind notice the 11 point criterion as are prescribed in the Constitution of India for the Constitution of Union Territories . We would like to inform you that Codava Land Coorg fulfils all the required qualifications in that regard and it may not be an out of place act on our part if we may be permitted to inform you that the State of Karnataka after the merger of the then ‘ C ’ type of state of Coorg i.e., the traditional Codava home land, with the State of Karnataka in the year 1956. The successive Governments and all the concerned there with have seized the opportunity to discriminate this region and indigenous Codava race and natives and in reality we have been suffering all the anomalies inflicted by our Government. The Government of Karnataka deliberately has discriminated against Codava Region with a solitary intention of erasing the very existence of the native people, Codava race and render the entire area to disuser and spoil our soil, cultural heritage, language and aboriginal indigenes Codava identity and historic existence in totality, besides causing insecurity in all spheres. The only method to safe guard the entire region ; the then “C” State of Coorg. The Cultural heritage of the people and the financial background of the region can be caused done by declaring this region to be an Union Territory under the direct control of the Union Government.

2.The successive Karnataka Government has considered this region to be an occupied territory in a war, treating the region a resource generating colony besides continuously having ill- treated the natives here. Added to it State of Karnataka has treated the native Codavas to be the subjects of their occupied territory and never as a citizens proper. Forget not the fact that each and every Codava regardless of status has contributed his might much beyond his capacity to rescue the boundaries of India and safeguard the interest of our mother country, needless to add that Codava’s are a martial race to every inch and not a single Codava family is not without a member in active military service. Despite Coorg being the known cradle of warriors has been and continuously being marginalised, excluded, neglected and disrespected intentionally with a solitary idea of erasing its existence totally. Despite the fact that the president of India has ratified the Karnataka Land Revenue amendment Act 2011 touching the confirmation of absolute ownership and tittle over the ancient jamma tenure lands in Codagu and even though Gazette notification has been published, the always corrupt and treacheries officialdom in Revenue department deputed by state Govt have proved themselves to be still more lethargic and dishonest and they deliberately play fraud with the natives by suppressing the law that prevails just now. It looks certain that the Karnataka Govt. has been in the process of using traitor Codavas as human shield in order to cover up its intentional wrong doings against Codagu & Codavas in general.

The rapacious and tyrannical behavior of everyone concerned with the Government of Karnataka is continuing without any stop Therefore we would like to re-iterate a fact that now time is ripe to get eradicated all the anomalies caused by the Government of Karnataka. A declaration of Codava Land Union Territory to that effect is clearly warranted in the attending circumstances. Codava Land U.T. is more essential, humane and deserving. It may be recalled that at the time of reorganization of states on 1 November 1956, parts of erstwhile Hyderabad Nizam province were merged with Karnataka (then state of Mysore), Maharashtra and Andhra Pradesh. If Bidar, Gulbarga and Raichur became parts of Hyderabad Karnataka, the parts merged with Maharashtra came to be identified as Marathawada region. The parts merged with Vishalandra. Later that entire region got identified as Telangana.

But as regarding Coorg is concerned it was a separate ‘C’ type state altogether once again Codagu also became a part and parcel of Vishala Karnataka (Vishala Mysore then) on the very same day i.e.: on 1 November 1956. Already Union Govt has created Telangana as the 29 th State of Indian Union and also assigned special politico - Economic package to Hyderabad Karnataka region under article 371 of our Constitution. It is time that our long felt need is supported and Union Territory of Codava Land is carved out with a special Bill to be moved.

The State Re - Organization Commission has cunningly deviated from the theme when it came about the existence of the State of Coorg with one Single language being spoken generally. Whatever has encouraged the State Re Organization Commission(SRC) to suppress the existence of “C” State of Coorg with Codava Language being the most popular spoken language of the erstwhile State of Coorg is not under stood. Now with the creation of one more Telugu speaking State the authorities deliberately played false on the very theme as expounded in the Constitution of India and so by merging a single language i.e Codava Thakk spoken of the State of Coorg with that of State of Mysore, Now Karnataka. Generally Speaking none can deny the fact that regions what CNC has been pressurizing to be treated as Autonomous Codava Land under the 6 th Schedule of our Constitution and in other words the SRC has throttled Codava race by merging Codagu/Coorg with Mysore, may be in their own vested interest or at the behest of others, say ruling class.

As the creation of one more Telugu speaking State as the State of Telangana has been a unscientific act on the part of the Govts the avoidance to restore the Codava Thakk Speaking part “C” state of Coorg’s Status is at another example for most unscientific act. Now coming to the main question in issue we would like to remind you a fact that

1.The Govt has exceeded its powers while it created a second Telugu speaking State of Telangana. 2. Despite such a reality the residual State of Andhra rose in opposition for the
3. creation of Telangana. 3.There absolutely is no need for the recommendation of any State Govt or State Legislature to create such of the States or creation of Autonomous regions in India( Amending the articles 2, 3 and 4 for new states and Amending the Schedule 6th for Autonomous regions) such a thing has been evidenced with the carving out of a second State of Telugu speaking region i.e State of Telangana. No recommendation of any State Legislature is not required.

Following are the criterion fixed in the Constitution touching the Constitution of U.T.

01. Union Territories are ruled directly by the Union Government (Central Government)

02. The President of India appoints an administrator or Lieutenant – Governor for each U.T.

03. Union Territories of India have special rights and status due to their Constitutional formation and development.

04. For safeguarding the rights of Indigenous cultures, averting political turmoil related to matters of governance.

05. All the Tax money goes to center as a U.T., region will be able to attract central funds exclusively for its development 06. Union Territories serve the purpose of administering regions which are small yet diverse may be because of their history or culture or geography.

07. Correct the anomaly caused by the reorganization of States which took place in 1956.

08. Sustain the economic, linguistic and cultural affinities of the region.

09. Politically, economically and educationally as they are in varying phases of development Central Government can take care of them without discrimination.

10. Administration as U.T will not drain the public exchequer.

11. Apart from improving the administrative setup move would help instill a sense of security among those from other regions of the state, who despite their decades - long stay in the region are feeling the jitters.

With a solitary idea of managing the affairs of any certain given area and also to make it known that the particular area is being governed properly and justice reaches to each and everyone, the Constitution framers have after much discussion and studying elaborately about the attending features of any particular given group of Towns and areas have formulated the idea of creating Union Territories in contrast with larger states. Before terming any particular area to be made Union Territory the Constitution framers have deeply studied about the topographical features , Geo-political aspirations of the indigenous people of that particular areas besides historical back ground and Economic criteria until that point of time. Added to it they have attempted to make an in-depth study in to the language and culture of the indigenous people of that area and such other attending features. Take instance for the cases of 7 Union Territories in India .

01. (a) Puduchery (b) Pondichery (c) Mahe (d) Yenam (e) Karaikal.

02. Dadra & Nagara Haveli.

03. Daman & Dive.

04. Andaman & Nicobar Islands.

05. Lakshadweepa.

06. Chandigarh.

07.Delhi National Capital Territory.

ECONOMIC VIABILITY FOR THE FORMATION OF CODAVA LAND U.T.

To assert our economic viability for the formation of U.T the point No.5 mentions about the
economic base and fund raiser in the manner of tax to be extracted to the Union Government
which in turn remits a substantial thereof to the developmental programs Union Territory if it
created. The financial resources from Coffee production, Forest wealth, Royalty from Cauvery
waters and promotion of Tourism shall last until Sun and Moon exists and Union Governments
must remember for this real truthful fact.

The things explained below fulfils criterion for Economic viability ( budgetary provisions). 1.Our Coffee

4. ( Coorg Coffee) is classified to be the best in world. After Petroleum Coffee is the Second largest
traded commodity in the world. India is considered to be the 6th largest Coffee producer in
the world, and Coorg produces an average 40% of total national production. Enough if we
arrive at a conclusion that gross foreign exchange from Coffee India earns every year is around Rs.
5 thousand Crores and it is safest method to add that Codagu supplies 40% of it.

2.The flora & fauna
and never hazardous perennial rivulets and water falls are exceptional only to Coorg. The lasting long
forest wealth in Codagu is considered to be the best carbon supplier in the world.

3. Added to it
the average annual yield of Cauvery river waters from Coorg exceeds 180 TMC feet. (The lifeline of South India River Cauvery has taken its birth in Coorg, particularly at Talacauvery).

4. What more,
the role of income from tourism activities ( The panoramic natural beauty, innumerable hillocks, pleasing natural atmosphere, added to it the kindly people are worth mentioning. It would be right if Coorg is termed as Gods own paradise on earth) Codagu stands next only to that of Isthanbul in world should Codava Land of Coorg be classified as Union Territory. It is very easy to take these features to be the main budgetary base for the maintenance and management of the Union Territories sought to be created. No doubt the actual money supply is addressed to the Union Governament and it is just practical to understand the money shall be allotted from the Union Government to this region ( Coorg) should it become a separate U.T. and unconnected with the State of Karnataka.

Hence C.N.C demands for the immediate creation of Codava Land Union Territory in the interest of justice and equity.

P:S:- In the nature of addenda we seek your kind permission to request you to read the following lines which in fact are the main contents of our charter of demands.

They are as follows:

1. We demand a permanent political package to grant Codava land with Union Territory status for Coorg under articles 2 & 3 of our Constitution.

2. Autonomy to Codava land under the 6th schedule of our Constitution. On the lines of Gorkhaland & Bodoland and Ladakh Buddhist Autonomous council and hill Autonomous councils of North Eastern regions.

3. Incorporate Codava Martial tribal Race in the Schedule list if our Constitution under articles 340 and
342 of our Constitution. We demand Tribal status to Codavas by race under articles 340 – 342 of our

Constitution. We take pleasure to remind the Govt about the inclusion of Jain Community as religious minority even though they are known to be the wealthiest people in India besides being Hindus in real sense. Jaats are also granted OBC status despite the fact that they are economically, politically and socially most affluent class of people spread over in 9 states of our country. The Rajasthan state has granted Tribal Status to violent Gujjars whose numbers exceeds 8crore in the country. Even though Codavas by Race historically are known to be a

5. Martial Class in Nature and numbering a meager 1 ½ lakhs population and that no other class of people would be affected or Jeoparadize if we are granted with Tribal status. PS. Unlike Zoroastrians who are scattered everywhere in the Nation besides being the richest and prominent in the judiciary, Industrial arena and in general activities besides being most Cosmopolitan and urbane. They have a separate religion of their own called Zoroastrianism unlike Codavas who are rustic by nature confined to Kodagu /Coorg region. Hence Tribalstatus is fittest for them.

4. Codava thakk should be included in the 8th schedule of our Constitution. Codava Thakk / Codava Language is as ancient as human civilization is rich and living spoken language throughout the history fit enough to be included in the 8 th schedule of our Constitution. We propose to cite MANORAMA YEAR BOOK 2015 which mentions about the 16 popular languages of our Country which includes Codava language to strengthen our claim – Manorama year book page 680 - Other Popular Languages 1. Angika 2. Awadhi 3. Bhojpuri 4. Bundeli 5. Chhatisgarhi 6. Hariyanavi 7. Hinduatani 8. Kanauji 9. Magadhi 10. Marwari 11. Bhili 12. Gondi 13. Kodava 14. Kutchi 15. Thulu 16. Mahi.

5. Protect our land tenure under article 371 of our Constitution with inner line permit on the lines of North - East States of India. Protect our Land tenure under article 371 of our Constitution: (Inner Line Permit) The provisions of article 371 of our Constitution with inner line permit should be made applicable toKodagu region at once as has been done in relation to Manipur and other North Eastern states. With a solitary intention of protecting our land from alienation and protecting our demography and such a thing called as “inner line permit”. Important factor is that large number of underworld dons particularly Dawood Ibhrahim ( D Company), regular miscreants with harden criminality, and business Tycoons from across the Country with the active support and assistance from Hawala agencies and fake currency racketeers have been grabbing lands in the this District. With a major idea of protecting lands in the district and the interest of the natives the promulgation of such stringent law within Coorg is warranted.

6. Exclusive Codava nominated representation in the Parliament and Assembly on the lines of Anglo Indians should be given under article 331 of our Constitution.

7. Devatt Paramb massacre – a tragic human holocaust in the mankind – We Insist for National Memorial / Monument of that Memorial on the lines of Jallianwala Bagh in memory of Amritsar Massacre and this tragedy should be included in the International Holocaust remembrance list of UNO. In memory of those Codava families (approximately 60 thousand unarmed Codavas) who were masssacred by Tyrant Tippu sulthan of Mysore and his rapacious soldiers, along with ruthless his French East India Company allied forces, after 32 continuous invasions tippu got defeated by Codava warriors disapointing in this insult he conspired to eliminate entire Codava martial tribal race, cunningly invited them for a grand feast in the pretext of entering a friendly treaty with Codavas at Devatt Paramb in the year 1785 13 December. This heinous inhuman tragic genocide/holocaust in the mankind happened in this place. – But their great souls are still alive in Devati Paramb.

8. Under Indian Arms act 1959 section 3 & 4 for carry and posses fire arms by Codavas and Jamma holders should be continued and protected for ever without any hindrance.

9. Demand for the implementation of the recommendations made by Constitution review Commission of India on the insistence of Codava National Council for the creation of Coorg Development Board under article 371 of (Please note: Chapter 8 Union State relation 8.23.1 of CRC report) as has been done in relation to touching Hyderabad Karnataka Region - appropriate amendment to the Constitution is desirable at once.

10. Codava Race should be globally recognized on par with Jews, Parsis, Sindhi, Yezidi, Kurdi, Baloch and Pastun etc.

11. Demand for permanent deployment of NIA (National Investigating Agency) and RA&W agencies,and this demand is recently incorporated along with the other 10 demands. Our demand No. 11 mentioned above pertains to the expected threat from global radical Islamic

Terrorism and transformation of Kodagu into ISIS and Naxal corridor should be curtailed, by permanently deploying NIA and RA&W agencies in Kodagu (Coorg) should such a thing be carried out. Please be assured that the residence here will be able to breathe fearlessly and the interest of National security and oneness will be protected forever. The above mentioned 11 demands certainly do require immediate consideration.

Sub: Unwanted forceful demand for Tippu Jayanthi (Tippu Birthday) celebrations by certain disgruntled Anti National group with ulterior motive of seedling and generating International Terrorism – i.e ISIS - NIA investigation is insisted for -

Inviting your kind attention to the proposed Birthday Celebrations of Erst While Ruler of Mysore tyrant Tippu Sultan scheduled to be held on 10- 2016 by the Govt of Karnataka in Coorg. “The people who insist for such a celebrations at the behest of Govt are interested only to take undue advantage from the Gov side and take refuge to gain legal sanctity for the seedling of International Terrorism in Coorg.”

Devatt Paramb is a site that witnessed the massacre of thousands of Codavas in 1785 by Psychopathic Tippu and his French East India Company allied forces. Each and every Codava child has been told at sometime or the other of this tragic massacre at Devatt Paramb. The trauma caused by him is being passed from generations to generations.

At this juncture we would like to inform you that certain disgruntled political personages including a former Law maker of Karnataka hailing from Kodagu (Coorg) and who is known to be the prime instigator of communal disharmony in Kodagu, now has come forward to pressurize the celebration of Tippu Birthday ( Tippu Jayanthi) as though he is the only and sole spokes person of certain community, better said little about the actual intention of the people who now forces everyone to celebrate Tippu Birthday with all vehemence and enthusiasm; but in actual fact are interested only to invoke Terrorism with Tippu portrait and gather unwanted enthusiasm. In actual fact the anti - national group headed by this fellow is interested to introduce some evil culture with International help and gather instant fame besides making unearned money. His only intention is to infest and spread International Terrorism through ISIS in India in general and Coorg in particular and spoil the prevailing peace in the Nation as well as our region with “Tippu as trump card”. He is hand in glow with International Terrorist outfits like ISIS and Al-Qaida has injected poison of fanaticism in Coorg and is indulged in subversive activities intended only to destroy the communal unity and political stability in our Country.

Better initiate immediate legal action and direct the NIA into the whole theory propounded by former Law maker and his henchman and better always keep him in a solitary cell and call a stop to all such anti social and anti national terrorist activities and subversive theory in Kodagu.

The people who insist for such a celebrations at the behest of Govt are interested only to take undue advantage from the

As such Tippu Birthday celebration in Coorg is not called for

  • America's Pentagon, which was destroyed by Osama bin laden and killed 3 thousand people which terrorised America and the entire globe. If one day, few of America s officials decide to celebrate his birthday and honour him, would that be right? Will that be accepted? 
  • Hitler massacred Jews during 1939-45 concentration camp, which was such big crime. Now, would the Jews in Israel celebrate and honour him on his birthday?
  • Three lakh Kurds, in the Suleimania mountain were killed by Saddam Husain, is that  acceptable? Should his birthday be a time for celebration?
  • During the 2nd world war, Japan was bombed by America under Mac Arthur s leadership. Humanity was destroyed, and the effect of the atom bomb is still very prominent. He, a hero in america, a villain in Japan.
  • Polpot massacred 10 lakh natives in Cambodia, will his bday celebration be accepted in the capital?
  •  Stalin massacred a huge bunch of Ukrainians. Will there be a celebration on his birthday in Ukraine? I highly doubt that.

Devatt Paramb Massacre – A Tragic History of Codava Race:-

Tragedy that Codavas are being forced to suffer.

Devati Paramb massacre – a tragic human holocaust in the mankind – In memory of those Codava families (approximately 60 thousand unarmed Codavas) who were masssacred, raped and persecuted by tyrant Tippu sultan of Mysore and his rapacious soldiers, after 33 continuous invasions Tippu got defeated by Codava warriors disapointing in this insult to avenge his defeat he conspired to eliminate entire Codava martial Tribal race, cunningly invited them for a grand feast in the pretext of entering a friendly treaty with Codavas at Devati Paramb in the year 1785 13 December. This heinous inhuman tragic genocide/holocaust in the mankind occurred in that place.

But their great souls are still alive in Devati Paramb. It is always better to make mention of the treacherous behavior of Hyder Ali of Srirangapatna during the last days of 18th Century. When he was defeated by Codava warriors and such defeat his son Tippu Sultan experienced on two separate occasions. In all three Guerilla type war fares Codava Heroes definitely have silenced Hyder Ali and his Son. In order to take revenge against brave Codavas Tippu Sultan invited Codavas to hold a congenial meeting with a special request to all Codavas along with their families to attend such a Feast party and asked them to participate without Arms (Weapon) at “Devatti Parambu” village between Aiyangeri and Bhagamandala under the false assurance that he would bring about friendly relationship with Coorgs. One historical truth is that Tippu sulthan even had appointed his friend a French Col. Laali to be a negotiator to hold talks with Codava chielfs and codava chieftains seeking their support and invited them for feast and stating that his enemies are Britons and Marathas and never Codavas. As such he insisted that Codavas and he develop friendly treaty. The innocent Codavas trusted him and attended the Feast meeting on 13 Dec 1875; when the function was in progress the ruthless Tippu have already arranged to instruct his rapacious Soldiers to kill them. The Tippu’s soldiers were hiding near around the Bushes and suddenly attacked Codavas. Even though unarmed a good number of Codavas did resist the onslaught, but the large number of Tippu’s Soldiers only took many of them massacred and some thousands have been arrested and taken to Srirangapatna where each of them were persecuted and forcibly circumcised & indoctrinated them into Islam, this Tragic incident reminds the memory of Jalianwallabagh massacre & Hitler’s Concentration Camp massacre and Codavas those who have lost their lives since this incident was harsher than jalian wallabagh incident we insist that Memorial on the lines of Jallian Wallabgh heroes should be erected at “Devatti parambu”. The information regarding the massacre of Codavas at Devati Paramb may be ascertained and confirmed from the historical records made by the official historian Mr.Mir Hussain Ali Kirmani of Tippu Sulthan’s Court himself.

We Codavas have lived in peace and respect with every community, have respected Muhammad paigambar, Allah, and the Quran.

The disheartening part is that, for centuries we have lived with the Muslim community with peace and harmony, done business together and they didn't support us in our time of need. Tipu Sultan was born into Islam just by a miss. We respect Islam and the Muslim community with all our hearts. He literally irradiated our community and after all why should we celebrate anybody's jayanthi anyway? Only the Father of the nation - Gandhi, and, the Father of the constitution - Ambedkar's Jayanthis ought to be celebrated, because if we try and celebrate every other Achiever's birthday, then we will have holidays and bandhs 365 days a year. So when will we really work on making our country and the lives of our citizens better if we only propagate celebration of the late kings and the politicians? We insist and request the government to not celebrate Tipu Sultan s Jayanthi anymore, as it only creates a state of anarchy in the country and does not in any way help the country grow.

The battle between Codavas and Tippu Sultan is one of the most bitter rivalries in South India. There were repeated attempts to capture Kodagu by the sultan and his father Hyder Ali before him. The primary reason for sultan's interest in Kodagu was that by annexing Kodagu would provide him access to Mangalore port. The Codavas knew their lands and mountains very well, which made them excellent at guerrilla warfare. Codavas were outnumbered 3 to 1 in most of Tippu's attempts to annex Kodagu but they managed to beat back Tippu most of the times by drawing his army towards hilly regions of their land.

Tippu got Run must Khan, the Nawab of Kurnool, to launch a surprise attack upon the Codava Hindus who were besieged by the invading Muslim army. 60,000 were killed and over 40,000 Codavas fled to the woods and concealed themselves in the mountains. Thousands of Codavas were seized along with the Raja and held captive at Srirangapatana. Arguably, they were thought to be subjected to forcible conversions to Islam, death, and torture. In Srirangapatana, the young men were all forcibly circumcised and incorporated into the Ahmedy Corps, and were formed into eight Risalas or regiments.

The cries and screams of the men and the women, the victims of this deadly event still echoes in this world. This disgusting event& untold misery of Codava women has been recorded by Tippu’s historian, Mir Hussain Ali Khan Kirmani and also by Tippu himself in the Persian language. When this callous act was taking place, Tippu, watched spitefully from the top of a hill (Kopati kund/Kopati Mountains). 60,000 Women, children, men were slaughtered to death, while the rest who survived were dragged across this earth in chains and sent to the Ganjam of Srirangapatna.This anarchy witnessed large scale displacement and enslavement of Codava race in the history of mankind.This devilish incident can be compared to what the unlawful Islamic Caliphate run by inhuman ISIS men are doing nowadays to the innocent Yazidi women, who are trapped, captured, raped and persecuted in Sinjar mountains between the quadri-junction of Iraq, Iran, Syria & Turkey.

Memorandum

Dear Sir,

Sub: Touching the inclusion of CodavaThakk in the 8thSchedule of Indian Constitution is warranted– place a bill in that regard in the ensuing session of Parliament – demand for:

1. Without any say Coorg/Kodagu was a full-fledged C-Type State as until its merger with the then state of Mysore, now Karnataka in the year 1956 and without any comment, Kodagu has developed a language of its own from time immemorial with classical rather superlative and it definitely is a rich, ancient and living language of Codava race. A great many authors have flourished has until then using Codava Thakk as their main language of communication. To mention a very few names, Appacha Kavi, Nadikerianda Chinappa, Dr. I M Muthanna, BD Ganapathi, Dr. Coravanda Appaiah who have breathed their last and two more authors who live and flourished are BP Appanna and BoveriandaDr.Uthappa (who has penned a Codava lexicon “Ariuvola”). The origin of CodavaThakk (Codava language) may be traced from the days of Matha Cauvery and Great Sage Agasthya, that perhaps for 5000 years ago. To crown the authoritative claim one can mention about the top linguist expert of South India by name Bishop Caldwell, who even traced that Codava Thakk to be the mother source of all “Pancha Dravida” Languages. With the merger of Kodagu in the state of Mysore, now Karnataka, Kodagu has lost all the hopes and aspirations, what Codavas have lingered to.

2. All the successive govts. who rallied and ruled Karnataka after Kodagu became its part and parcel, deliberately have attempted to silence Codava race, lesser said the better, the CodavaThakk(the directions has enshrined in the 7thamendment of our constitution i.e. State Reorganization Act 1956. Without any doubt makes it obligatory to protect, promote and propagate all regional languages being spoken and flourished in the erstwhile statesunder Articles 347, 350 A and 350 B, when such regions became merged with any other larger states. But for certain all successive govts. Who ruled Karnataka have failed, nay deliberately have avoided following the same with regard to CodavaThakk). No doubt CodavaThakk did not flourished the way as it should have been when Kodagu became a part & parcel of Karnataka. Except that all the successive govts. have swindled the financial resources of Kodagu besides intentionally destroying the very demographic mosaic of Coorg. Nothing they have contributed to the benefit, especially Codavas and their language. It could have chosen to seek the inclusion of CodavasThakk in the 8thSchedule of our constitution, but not a single soul who flourished this long have chosen fit to do the same.

3. Martial heritage of Codava race – Codavas are definitely the components of historically ancient martial racial tribes as is the language to cut short the better, we remember the name and contribution of Field Marshal KM Cariappa (the first Commander in Chief of Army of Independent India) and General KS Thimmaiah, whose contribution to the defence of the country. Certainly it is inimitable, added to it, CMPoonacha, who later became the Railway Minister in the Nehru Cabinet, and who incidentally was the only individual who ruled as the Chief Minister of the erstwhile Part C State of Coorg. Poonacha was also the Governor of Madhya Pradesh and Odisha and Mr. Poonacha represented Coorg state in the Constituent Assembly of India. Two more decorated names, we cannot avoid to mention are that of Chonira Muthamma,who was first Indian woman to become an IFS officer and later became the Indian Ambassador to Ghana. The other name we propose to mention is Shri. CG Somaiah, whose contribution to the Govt. of India service is still remembered and he was Home Secretary to Govt. of India and later who became the Comptroller & Auditor General of India.

4. Therefore, we hereby place this subject to include the Codava Thakk in the 8thSchedule of our Constitution expeditiously to save the ancient Codava language. Our request becomes more empathic, if we be permitted to quote the view, expressed by the UNESCO in its annual report in the year 2009, wherein which it has mentioned about the Codava language to be one of the 181 endangered languages across the world.

Politico Historical Perspective of Kodagu/Coorg-

Infact Kodagu/Coorg was one of the “ChappanaruJanapadaRashtras” of the Bharatvarsha (i.e. 56 ancient folkloric nation states existed in the Indian subcontinent) and it was nomenclatured as “KrodaDesha” as until medieval era. From 1633 AD to 1834, it was full-fledged independent Kingdom. From 1834 to until 1857, Kodagu was a province being governed by British East India Company, as from 1857, until 1947 ruled by British crown through its Viceroys and Governor Generals. From 1947 to 1952, Kodagu was a provincial state under the direct rule of Govt. of India. After framing of constitution in the year 1950, Kodagu became part C type state from 1950 to 1956, as per part C state act. Codavas have successfully maintained, protected and enriched Codava Thakk from ancient times as until 1956 Kodagu became merged under State Reorganization Act and thereafter, it became forgotten. The inclusion of CodavaThakk in the 8thSchedule of Indian Constitution would certainly enliven Codavarace.Legend records that Codava race and their language Codava Thakk blossomed with the birth of a human civilization around river Cauvery ages ago.The original nomenclature of land was “KrodaDesha”of which the aboriginal Codava indigenous tribes, and the Codava Thakk is a derivation of Codava Race.

6. Trust worthy and acceptable proof for Codava Thakk from the sources of various literary pieces and authors have recorded the worthiness of Codava Thakk and also enriched our language; and the prime amongst them are ‘SkandaPurana’.The ‘Cauvery Vaibhava’ by EdurkalaShankara Narayana Bhat. A Tamil Master piece ‘Thirukoral’ authored by Saint Poet Thiruvalluvar. The Coorg Gazetteer penned by British Historians M/s Rev.Fr. G Richter and Lewis Rice. The travelogues entitled as ‘Astonishing land’ by Hilton Brown and ‘Shoe strings to Coorg’ by Dervla Murphy by English Authors. The ancientness and importance of Codava Thakk during the past over 2500 years as advocated by Dr.Purushothama Bilimale, the Professor of Kannada chair in Delhi University. Besides the authoritative words about the significance of Codava Thakk by renowned Political Scientist and visiting Prof. Of Paris University & former Rector of JNU Dr.Balvir Arora and eminent social scientist Padmabhushan Dr. T.K Oommen and the most authentic supportive evidence given by Persian Historian ‘Farishtha’, besides the words of Ibn Bathutha, the Sufi Saint from Moracco.

7. The literary work of Ramayana Dharshanam by Kuvempu makes mention about Codavas and Codava Women folk and their language CodavaThakk. The 4th Jnana Peetha award recipient Novel “ChikkaveeraRajendra” by Dr.MastiVenkateshIyengar, ‘KodaginaIthihasa’ by D.N Krishnaiah narrated exclusively about Codava culture and their rich language and heritage. ‘Abhidhana Chintamani’ a Tamil encyclopedia by noted Tamil Scholar A Singaravelu Modaliyar, the literary work of V.S Ramakrishna in Codava Thakk. ‘Shrimad Bhagavad Gita’ penned by Nagesh Kaloor, ‘Jaya Bharatha’ authored by Mandira Jaya Appanna and the authentic comprehensive explanation of socio-cultural and ethnographic study by popular anthropologist of yesteryear Dr. M.N Srinivasan of JNU in his work of “Religion and Society among Coorgs” in South India.

8. Added to it Shri Panjemangesharaya the highly and most respected teacher of the then Govt high school Madikeri Coorg has penned a song under the title “Puthari Paat” extolling the chivalry of Codavas and their rich heritage and the unbreakable connection between river Cauvery and Mother soil with Codavas; the poetry starts “Elli Bhoorame Devasannidi”. The finale of such luxurious literary works has ended up with “Nanga Codavanga Codagrodeyanga” created by Late. G. yadumani of “Shakthi group” which again extols the matchless Gallantry and velour of Codava race and their humanity, kindness and rich culture fostered by Codavas touching the mother earth and river Cauvery. Both the songs in classical method adoring rich Martial heritage of Codava Race incomparable and supreme in excellence which have been dedicated to Codavas by both the great poets. The Codava Thakk periodical “Poomaale” has given a wonderful upliftment to Codava language during the past 2 decades, so also the “Shakthi News daily” has been giving unexpected support to the growth of Codava Culture & Codava language. Added to it CNC has been championing for the cause of Codava Thakk, and it has given a meaningful dimension to Codava Thakk in the National Arena for the recognization of the same.

9. Even the UNHRC has taken cognizance of representation made by CNC regarding the well worthy ancientness and the preservation of CodavaThakk and mentioned about the importance of the needed support lent to the development of CodavaThakk.

All the literary pieces referred to above give authentic evidence regarding the ancientness beside folkloric richness of CodavaThakk.

10. One important matter left out is that you have incorporated Maithili language in the 8th schedule of our Constitution. On the ground that it was the language spoken by the legendary SitaMatha of Ramayana and the continued existence of the same in Mithila region of Northern Bihar, the ancient folkloric republic (Janapada) reigned by the Maharaja Janaka, the father of SitaMatha.In reality Cauvery Matha was much older than SitaMatha and her mother tongue CodavaThakk is much older than SitaMatha’s language Maithili. Let not CodavaThakk die along with river Cauvery. With such an analogy in mind we take privilege to remind you that CodavaThakk was the mother tongue of Mother Cauvery and great sage Agasthya and it is as old as river Cauvery and just now consequent upon the situation. Pathetic and hazardous activities of the government here the water flow in the river Cauvery has remarkably come down (lifeline river Cauvery has dried up just now) and let it not happen to CodavaThakk. Let not the holy tongue of Matha Cauvery be cut.

11. River Cauvery finds place in ‘Sapthanadi’ (Ganga, Yamuna, Godavari, Sarasvati, Narmada, Sindhu and Cauvery) of the Vedic period (7 folkloric holy rivers of Vedic times) of India in age old Puranas.

12. When the Constitution was framed, the 8th schedule of the same included only 14 languages. The amendments caused to the Constitution in the year 1968 incorporated ‘Sindhi’ language in the 8th schedule. The amendment to the Constitution incorporated Konkani, Manipuri and Nepali in the year 1982. The amendment caused in the year 2003 made mention of Maithili, Santhali, Bodo and Dogri languages in the 8th schedule. But those languages have not been recognized has official languages by any of the states. Except Political pressure no other reason has come forth to include these 4 languages. Why Codava Thakk is not included in the 8th schedule this far. What prevented them? even though it happens to be the most ancient language being spoken in Kodagu. Majority of tribes besides Codavas speak that language as Codava Thakk as their Mother Tongue.

13. A far sighted view expressed by Philosopher Bertrand Russell is that any existing civilization and its ethno Nationality may be eliminated if the languages spoken by them and their respective lands are ruined first. This is in the process of Codava Thakk and their land; let not such a thing happen.

14. It may not be a bad precedent on our part if we take this opportunity to remind you a fact that Mr. George Fernandes has insisted for the inclusion of all the languages finding place in the 8th schedule of our Constitution as Official languages of UNO, while he was a Union Minister in the year 2001. Added to it UNO has arrangements for translation for all the languages in the Universe.

15. Added to all the things mentioned above, we would like to recollect a real fact that Dr. M VeerappaMoily, who was the incumbent Chief Minister then, after having understood the value and worthwhileness of CodavaThakk, constituted a CodavaSahithya Academy with a sole purpose to allow the ones who become associated with the Codava Academy and collect and furnish base materials touching the Codava language. One important factor unearthed from the history is that Joseph Stalin, when he was a key figure in the Russian administration facilitated a micro minority Jew community to establish an autonomous region in Birobidzan and even went further to include Jews ‘mother tongue ‘Yiddish’ and ‘Hebrew’ spoken by people not more than 1000 in the erstwhile USSR under their Constitution and so the South Africa has incorporated 11 languages (Afrikaans, English, Ndebele, Pedi, Sotho, Swazi, Tsonga, Tswana, Venda, Xhosa, and Zulu) in the list of national languages. It is amazing that South Africa has also given Constitutional protection to Gujarati, Hebrew, Hindi, Portuguese, Sanskrit, Tamil, Telugu and Urdu languages. While we gathered the courage to comparable study of “Russia” and “South Africa” with regard to their language policy that the framers of Indian Constitution adopted the directive principles has found in the Constitution of 10 Nations which includes Russia and South Africa.

16. One other example as to how the ancient languages should be kept alive and enliven as being done by Radio Kashmir which broadcasts 7 regional languages. Jews of Israel believe that their language Hebrew is a divine language and insists that Israel is a motherland of divinity. Similar analogy shall be accepted to be true in relation to mother Cauvery’s birthplace, Coorg is a sacred and her mother tongue CodavaThakk to be divine for us. Added to it, All India Radio and Prasar Bharti have incorporated ‘Balochi’ language in its programme to propagate, preserve, enliven the same and to give recognition that Balochis are a separate nationality in the global arena for their struggle for sovereign homeland.

17. It would not be an out of place act on our part if we may be permitted to press your memory to the fact that the language emanated during the progress of the Indus valley civilization and that was “Sindhi” “Konkani” language incorporated in the 8th schedule of our Constitution in the year 1968. So did the Konkani language was included in the 8th schedule in the year 1982 and that mother tongue was being spoken by Gowda Saraswatha Brahmin sect grown within the region of Saraswathi river civilization. The language Maithili, the mother tongue of Seetha Maatha of Ramayana period which was the living spoken language of Mithila region of northern Bihar, perhaps the known oldest Republic/Janapada ever to have borned and Seetha Matha’s Father king Janak Maharaja was ruling the Mithila kingdom. Accepting the Mythological background of Mithila Civilization, Maithili language gained entry into the 8th schedule of our Constitution in the year 2003, but unfortunately the most ancient civilization flourished in and around the area of Coorg, where lifeline river Cauvery originated, bloomed, flowed and grew and one of the most ancient known 7sacred rivers (Sapthanadhis of the yore) of Vedic period to have eminated and flown in India i.e Sindhu, Ganga, Yamuna, Narmada, Saraswathi, Godawari & Cauvery. Matha Cauvery is known to be much older than legendary Seetha Matha so her mother tongue Codava Thakk. Unfortunately Codava Thakk does not find place in the 8th schedule of our Constitution.

18. Even during the Vanavasa and exile (Ajnatha) periods of Seetha, Rama, Lakshmana are known to have roamed around the banks of River Cauvery and her birth place motherland i.e Codava land. The formidable proof for such a thing is the existence of “Hanumantha Kundh, Ramatheertha, Laxmanatheertha, Irpu Rameshwara temple and Ramaswamy Kanive” etc, and from where Rama left in order to meet Shabari in the Malayalam region i.e. Kerala. Needless to add that the revered great sage Agasthya the husband of Cauvery encouraged and provided with all the needed powerful weapons to fight against Ravana, whose strength he had let known to Rama to keep ready himself for the great battle. Incidentally the entire dialogue as between Saint Agasthya, Rama and Lakshmana was in Codava Thakk.

19. One more evidence what we proposed to inform you that the great epic “Mahabharata” mentions about the beauty of the Lopamudra i.e. Cauvery; the most beautiful Divine Woman ever to have born until then and exemplifies her beauty to be superior than peacock, Swan, Lotus and Nyctanthes arbor-tristis (Night-flowering Jasmine) (Parijaatha) and Agasthya married Cauvery to whom Dhridasyu was born to them incidentally the Codava Martial Tribes are the known descendants of Dridhsassu who made Codavu Naad i.e. Coorg our homeland ever since then the language spoken by the Cauvery, Agasthya and Dhridasyu used to be Codava Thakk which we Codavas have inherited and speak ever since then.

20. The Pandavas during Dwapara yuga moved around and sheltered during their Vanavasa and exile (Ajnatha Vasa) periods in Kodagu/ Coorg and one exemplifying fact is that all Codavas Tribes mingles with them, helped them and conversed with them in Codava Thakk only. The “Pandava Paare” and “Bhimakal” in Kodagu are the proof for Pandavas having made their temporary homeland in Kodagu. Codavas start their Cauvery festivities during “Tholeyar Changrandhi” by planting a “Both” a wooden Rod or Bamboo peace wrapped with a particular green raw leaves of “Both” plant in their paddy fields to commemorate the memory of Pandavas having spent their valuable time in Kodagu with Codavas. Despite all those things Codava Thakk does not find place in the 8th schedule of our Constitution and we re-iterate the same may be incorporated in the 8th schedule of our Constitution.

21. Even though the Govt has recognized “Gurumukhi” as the National language and has started “Balochi language” broadcasting in the Prasar Bharthi DD and AIR. We insist that once the Govt may be pleased to open a separate exclusive Codava Thakk DD channel to herald all Codava news and programs in Codava Thakk and perhaps to the incorporation of Codava Thakk in the 8th schedule of our Constitution.

22. Added to all these proof the first British officers who have entered Kodagu spoke in fluent Codava Thakk with Codavas and for certain they are M/s Captain Le Hardy Col. Frasser and Mark Cubban.

23. May it be known that every born human being dreams only in their mother tongue and that is the significance of any existing language.

Therefore, we hereby request the Union Govt to do the needful about the insertion of CodavaThakk in the 8th schedule of our Constitution at once which is most warranted.

Addenda

1. To quote one example we would like to inform you that Sri Lanka Government introduced “Simhala the only act” Bill in the year 1956, one of the, most respected Tamil parliamentarian Mr. Coline’D’silva objected such proposal insisting that Sri Lanka will become divided into 2 nations if you insisted for the introduction of “Simhala the only act” as the language by side-lining Tamil and if you introduce 2 languages Srilanka will be one single Nation. As such, we hereby request you to direct the State Govt of abandoning their idea of introducing Kannada to be sole State language, but instead treat the languages mentioned above particularly Codava, Tulu and Konkani to be the Mother Tongue along with Kannada as mentioned.

2. The state of Karnataka is definitely is a conglomeration of 6 different languages and regions such as Konkani speaking Karwar (Uttara Kannada) and Marathi speaking Bijapur, Darawad, Belgaum as Mumbai Karnataka region. Urdu speaking Bidar, Gulburga, and Raichur as Hyderabad Karnataka region. Tulu speaking Dakshina Kannada region (Mangalore) as Madras Presidency and Codava language speaking Coorg State, in other words Karnataka is a Heterogeneous state but unfortunately people at the helm of affairs are attempting to classify Karnataka as Homogeneous state, which certainly is not. Their only wish to gain illegitimate control of overall region and languages including Kodagu and CodavaThakk. Added to it such anomalies the Govt of Karnataka definitely has succeeded in avoiding the influence of Articles 29 and 30 of Indian Constitution by refusing the opportunity to run educational institutions by Codava Minority race.

3. With the above mentioned things in mind we would like to reiterate the time tested factor that CodavaThakk is the most ancient and living regional languages in our Coorg District and it has the unbroken history of “5000 years. Interestingly the book i.eCodava Cultural Encyclopaedia with the title as “PattolePalame” was the first of its kind in South India having been authored and published as the folkloric literary peace. Interestingly, the Manorama year books (encyclopaedia) continuously mentioned CodavaThakk to be one of the most Popular and living 16 languages such as Angika, Awadhi, Bhojpuri, Bundeli, Chhattisgarhi, Haryanvi, Hindustani, Kanouji, Magadhi, Marwari, Bhili, Ghondi, Kodava, Kutchi, Tulu, Mahi in India, published successively in the years 2014,2015 & 2016. The thing appear in the MalayalaManorama definitely strengthens a true fact that CodavaThakk is one of the most popular living folklore language and it authenticates the plea that the same shall be incorporated in the 8th schedule of Indian Constitution and also besides making it to be included in the curriculum and administration.

DevattParamb Massacre/Holocaust

A Peaceful Codava Sathyagraha in the precinct of DC’s Office, Madikeri by CNC on 29-09-2016

1. UNO should take initiative to attract the World consciences about the DevattParamb massacre and also should include DevattParamb tragic massacre in the international Holocaust remembrance list of UNO.

2. We request the Govt of India to denigrate and condemn the inhuman tragic holocaust of Codava race by Tipu and French East India Company’s Allied forces at DevattParamb in the year 13 Dec 1785. The Government of India should pass a resolution in the Parliament condemning the same (War Crime) besides building a permanent National monument for the departed souls.

3. Demanding apology from French Govt for their role in the 1785 holocaust of Codava Raceat DevattParamb in collusion with Tipu Sultan.

In furtherance of our legitimate request made to French Government expressed in the month of March 21, 2016 passing through French authorities to apologize for the sin they have committed against Codavas in collusion with Tipu Sultan, the then ruler of Mysore on 13th December 1785 at DevattParamb, which in reality, was a war crime: We expect the French authorities to realize the sins they have committed against Codavas and apologize publicly for the same without any reservation. Since French authorities have gained civility after the formation of UNO, we insist that they should exhibit their readiness to reconcile with us in order to minimize the pangs and pains suffered by Codavas on that account. One must know that all the developed countries in the world have reconciled with the sins each of them have committed during the past centuries and French authorities also should follow suit.

The criminal activities the world authorities have caused as follows and they have also reconciled for their respective brutal activities;/

1. The bombardment of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in Japan by America under the military leadership of General McArthur during Second World War. For which incumbent President Mr. Barack Obama has apologized.

2. The then visiting British Prime Minister Mr. David Cameron apologized in 2013 in Amritsar for the JallianwalaBagh massacre done by the then British Government in the year 1919.

3. Japan and Germany apologized for their reckless attitude and brutality committed against Philippines, Chinese and Korea during second world war.

4. And so Canadian Prime Minister Mr. Justin Trudeau apologized on the floor of the Canadian House of Commons (Parliament) for the sin Canadians have committed by refusing the ingress of poor Punjabi Sikh peasants, who actually wanted to seek an opportunity to live in Canada, who had voyaged in ships then, say it is in the year 1914, some 102 years ago and Canada had inhumanely sent back all the 376 Sikh peasants.

5. One must know that Human Rights group of Pakistan has sought for the apology from British Queen Elizabeth for the illegal hanging of great revolutionary freedom fighter Shaheed Bhagat Singh by British Government in 1931.

6. The entire world community is demanding apology from Turkish authorities for having brutalized the Armenian people during World War 1 by the then Turkish Ottoman empire.

7. The rights groups of the world are demanding apology from Pakistani authorities for having committed the brutal massacre of Bangladeshi freedom fighters in 1971.

8. Perhaps for the first time in the human memories the first citizen of USA without mincing words has admitted the crimes by US army against Laos and it is a fact that thousands of citizens of that country have been killed ruthlessly by bombardment during 1960’s and the net result is the people of that country are still suffering on that score. At least Obama has the prudence to express his repentance for the same.From 1964 to 1973, the U.S. dropped more than two million tons of ordnance on Laos during 580,000 bombing missions—equal to a planeload of bombs every 8 minutes, 24-hours a day, for 9 years – making Laos the most heavily bombed country per capita in history. Over 20,000 people have been killed or injured by UXO in Laos since the bombing ceased.

9. One Pakistani human rights activist by name Mariyam S Paul who lives presently in Canada whose father was a survivor of the1947 partition complicit, and innumerable human loss on account of the mutual fight that occurred during the period of partition as insisted both the countries that India and Pakistan shouldbuild a joint memorial to victims and heroes: how India and Pakistan can heal partition’s tragic legacy. (More than 10 million people have been killed)

10. Withsuch a legacy in mind we request the Govt of India to denigrate and condemn inhuman holocaust ofCodava Race at DevattParambin Coorg, besides building a permanent National monument for the departed souls.

11.

12. We also take this opportunity to request the Govt of France to repent for the inhuman holocaust of Codava Race in its entirety that have committed by French East India Company allied forces along with Psychopathic Tippu at DevattParamb in the year 1785, and also help to establish International memorial for the Codavas who have been tragically / brutally massacred in DevattParamb.

In order to let know the above things by the world community, about the tragic massacre of Codavas by both Tippu and French East India Company’s Allied Forces, CNC will hold a peaceful satyagraha on 29thSeptember 2016 in the vicinity of Town Hall at Bangalore.

The French authorities must know that they are undergoing the wrath and curse of all those persons who have been massacred by some 231 years ago. The entire world must know about the very same French authorities who generated the help for seeding the father and author of the world’s first terrorist TippuSultan. It is ironical that now the very same Tippu Sultan’s successors i.e. dreaded world terrorists like Al-Qaeda and ISIS are creating unrest across the world as well as in France.

Press Release:-

DevattParamb Massacre/Holocaust

A Peaceful Codava Sathyagraha in the vicinity of Town Hall at Bangalore by CNC on 29-09-2016 at 10.00 a.m.

1. UNO should take initiative to attract the World consciences about the DevattParamb massacre and also should include DevattParamb tragic massacre in the international Holocaust remembrance list of UNO.

We request the Govt of India to denigrate and condemn the inhuman tragic holocaust of Codava race by Tipu and French East India Company’s Allied forces at DevattParamb in the year 13 Dec 1785. The Government of India should pass a resolution in the Parliament condemning the same (War Crime) besides building a permanent National monument for the departed souls.

2. Demanding apology from French Govt for their role in the 1785 holocaust of Codava Raceat DevattParamb in collusion with Tipu Sultan<.p>.

A Peaceful Sathyagrahain the vicinity of Town Hall at Bangalore by CNC on 29-09-2016 at 10.00 a.m.

In furtherance of our legitimate request made to French Government expressed in the month of March 21, 2016 passing through French authorities to apologize for the sin they have committed against Codavas in collusion with Tipu Sultan, the then ruler of Mysore on 13th December 1785 at DevattParamb, which in reality, was a war crime: We expect the French authorities to realize the sins they have committed against Codavas and apologize publicly for the same without any reservation. Since French authorities have gained civility after the formation of UNO, we insist that they should exhibit their readiness to reconcile with us in order to minimize the pangs and pains suffered by Codavas on that account. One must know that all the developed countries in the world have reconciled with the sins each of them have committed during the past centuries and French authorities also should follow suit.

The criminal activities the world authorities have caused as follows and they have also reconciled for their respective brutal activities;

1. The bombardment of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in Japan by America under the military leadership of General McArthur during Second World War. For which incumbent President Mr. Barack Obama has apologized.

2. The then visiting British Prime Minister Mr. David Cameron apologized in 2013 in Amritsar for the JallianwalaBagh massacre done by the then British Government in the year 1919.

3. Japan and Germany apologized for their reckless attitude and brutality committed against Philippines, Chinese and Korea during second world war.

4. And so Canadian Prime Minister Mr. Justin Trudeau apologized on the floor of the Canadian House of Commons (Parliament) for the sin Canadians have committed by refusing the ingress of poor Punjabi Sikh peasants, who actually wanted to seek an opportunity to live in Canada, who had voyaged in ships then, say it is in the year 1914, some 102 years ago and Canada had inhumanely sent back all the 376 Sikh peasants.

5. One must know that Human Rights group of Pakistan has sought for the apology from British Queen Elizabeth for the illegal hanging of great revolutionary freedom fighter Shaheed Bhagat Singh by British Government in 1931.

6. The entire world community is demanding apology from Turkish authorities for having brutalized the Armenian people during World War 1 by the then Turkish Ottoman empire.

7. The rights groups of the world are demanding apology from Pakistani authorities for having committed the brutal massacre of Bangladeshi freedom fighters in 1971.

8. Perhaps for the first time in the human memories the first citizen of USA without mincing words has admitted the crimes by US army against Laos and it is a fact that thousands of citizens of that country have been killed ruthlessly by bombardment during 1960’s and the net result is the people of that country are still suffering on that score. At least Obama has the prudence to express his repentance for the same.From 1964 to 1973, the U.S. dropped more than two million tons of ordnance on Laos during 580,000 bombing missions—equal to a planeload of bombs every 8 minutes, 24-hours a day, for 9 years – making Laos the most heavily bombed country per capita in history. Over 20,000 people have been killed or injured by UXO in Laos since the bombing ceased.

9. One Pakistani human rights activist by name Mariyam S Paul who lives presently in Canada whose father was a survivor of the1947 partition complicit, and innumerable human loss on account of the mutual fight that occurred during the period of partition as insisted both the countries that India and Pakistan shouldbuild a joint memorial to victims and heroes: how India and Pakistan can heal partition’s tragic legacy. (More than 10 million people have been killed)

10. Withsuch a legacy in mind we request the Govt of India to denigrate and condemn inhuman holocaust ofCodava Race at DevattParambin Coorg, besides building a permanent National monument for the departed souls.

11. We drag this opportunity to insist that the UNO to take initiative to attract the World consciences and include the tragic massacre in the International holocaust remembrance list of UNO as early as possible besides starting an International Holocaust Museum for the memory of all those Codavas who have lost their lives at Devattparamb tragedy.

12. We also take this opportunity to request the Govt of France to repent for the inhuman holocaust of Codava Race in its entirety that have committed by French East India Company allied forces along with Psychopathic Tippu at DevattParamb in the year 1785, and also help to establish International memorial for the Codavas who have been tragically / brutally massacred in DevattParamb.

Press Release - For Kind Publication

Acknowledgement from UNHRC

The struggles of the Codava people under the aegis of CNC/ Codava National Council with regards to the protection of our cultural heritage and language is well known across India. However, the apathetic attitude of the Government has made us look to other avenues for relief.

The CNC took the initiative to highlight the plight of the Codavas in the United Nations and we are proud to announce that the UNHRC has taken up the matter and has referred the case to the UNHRC Special Procedures for further investigation in this matter.

The acknowledgement and the subsequent referral is a big step forward in recognizing the struggles of the Codava people in the international fora. This brings into fruition the years of struggle put in by the CNC in highlighting the struggles of the Codava people.

We hereby attach the acknowledgement of UNHRC for your kind perusal

Dear Sirs,

Memorandum

Sub: Demand for the implementation of the recommendation made by Constitution Review Commission of India on the insistence of CNC for the creation of Coorg Development Board under article 371 of (Please note: Chapter 8: union state relation 8.23.1 of CRC report) our Constitution as has been done in relation to touching Hyderabad Karnataka Region – appropriate amendment to the Constitution is desirable at once.

It may not be an out of place act on our part if we may be permitted to advert your kind attention to the subject and reference cited above and we take honor to remind you that the then Union Govt under the inimitable leadership of Bharat Rathna Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee Constituted a Constitution Review Commission of India under the Chairmanship of Mr. Justice M.N Venkatachalaiah a former Chief Justice of India and 11 other reputed Scholars, Jurists, Socio - Political Scientists & Constitutional experts as its members in the year 2000. And we drag this opportunity that we have placed a honest representation before the Commission on 21-11-2000 at Vighyan Bhavan New Delhi. The Hon’ble CRC has submitted its detailed report and recommended a Constitution of a Coorg.

Development Board under Article 371 of our Constitution, starting of Central University and a Sainik School for Coorg. Sainik School has already been started.

No doubt true that our Prime objects are carving out of Union Territory status or Coorg under Articles 2&3 of our Constitution and the creation of Codava land Autonomous Region under the 6th Schedule of our Constitution. We will continue our struggle for the creation of Codava land with UT Status & Autonomy, but we unhesitatingly request you to be good enough to constitute a Development Board for Coorg Dist on the lines of the recommendations made by the said CRC (Constitution Review Commission of India). Already Hyderabad Karnataka region has been assigned special package under Article 371 of our Constitution in the year 2014. Such a scheme definitely has all the opportunities to implement developmental programs, Education and Job reservation Quota etc to be valid for entire State. We take this opportunity to make available such a scheme to Kodagu region at once with an appropriate Constitutional amendment to that respect. No doubt true that we will continue our agitation for our legitimate dear demands as mentioned above.

Development Board for Coorg Proposed by Constitution Review Commission of India “A Victory of CNC”

The recommendations of the Constitution Review commission regarding the establishment of Coorg Development Council under Article 371, the demand was originated, initiated and pressurized by CNC only, should be given effect to at once. (Please note: Chapter 8: union state relation 8.23.1 of CRC report) “The recommendation for a separate Development Board for Codagu, made by the Constitution Review Commission is a step forward to the resurgence of Codava Land”. The CNC had presented memorandums before the Commission headed by Honorable Justice M. N. Venkatachalaiah and had met almost all the members of the Commission and apprised them of the need for the restoration of Codava land, constitutional special guarantee for the Codava race, reservation for Codavas on the basis of primitive ethno linguistic tribal minority national status’, and autonomous Central University.

I recall about the special meeting convened by the CRC for a 30 member delegation on November 21, 2000 when the delegation had visited Delhi in connection with the CNC's rally and apprised him of the demands of CNC. "No doubt many of our requests have been left untouched, yet we have half succeeded and we are grateful to Justice Venkatachalaiah and other Constituents of the Commission." That the ball is now in the Union Government’s court. I am sure that the report submitted by the Commission will see easy passage in the parliament on presentation. The actual procedure required amendments to each and every area touched by the statute book separately. Likewise a Constitutional Amendment under Article 371 has to be made, as have been made amendments to Article 371 {A) to 371(j) in case of Nagaland, Assam, Manipur, Andhra, Sikkim, Mizorarn, Arunachal, Goa, Vidarbha, Marathwada, Saurashtra Kutch and Hyderabad Karnataka Region. All aspects concerning Development Boards require President's special powers. In accordance the Governor of each given state is responsible to act in acc9rdance with the directions of the President from time to time.

Significance of the Development Board:

A. Establishment of a separate Development Board for Coorg with the provision that a report on the working of this board will be placed each year before state legislative assembly.

B. The equitable allocation of funds for development expenditure over the said areas, subject to the requirements of the state as a whole and,

C. The equitable arrangement providing adequate facilities for technical education and vocational training and adequate opportunities for employment in Services Under the control of the state and Central Government.

The Governor has to act according to the directions issued by the President from time to time and the Governor has to act in his discretion. This means that even though the governor has to consult the ministers, the final decision in these matters shall be that of the Governor in his individual judgment, which no court can question. That the mention of “Coorg” was deleted when Article 242 of the Constitution (exclusively for Coorg when it was part C state) was repealed. Now that the amendment to Article 371 are expected to be made in course of time, it is more significant fact that the word “Coorg” shall find its entry into our Constitution once again.

PS “The aldermen of Coorg met the Simon Commission in 1930s and certain provisions have been incorporated in the Govt. of India Act, 1935. It was the first and only occasion when something positive was made by the Codavas to find place in nation’s prime statute book. Now it is my organization (CNC) has done the repeat performance I add more authoritatively that none except my organization has made anything so far in relation to the districts development Board and the entire credit should go to the Codava National Council only.

PS The person from Coorg who was a Cabinet Minister then in the J.H. Patel ministry who’ did not find it proper to say one single word regarding the need of Development Board for Coorg during July 1998, when the Karnataka Cabinet headed by J. H. Patel has the CM, recommended for the creation of a development board for Hyderabad Karnataka region, to the Union Government.

I and my organization will dedicate ourselves to strive for the prime demands viz. resurgence of Cadava Land, right to self determination of Codava minority race, separate Codava land and constitutional special guarantee for Codavas land, language, culture, and heritage, economic and political freedom. It took us 24 years of dedicated efforts and we will continue till the goal is attained.

Thanking you,

Dear Sir,

Enclosed here with are the true extracts of the representation that we have made to all the important personages and Governmental heads of our Nation and also to you requesting to implement the recommendations made by the Constitution Review Commission of India(CRC) headed by Mr. Justice M.N Venkatachalaiah which was Constituted by Bharath Rathna Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee JI run NDA Government, requesting the Constitution of Coorg Development Board under Article 371 of our Constitution and we believe that you need know repetition of the same.

It is a fact that you used to be a Constitutionally appointed authority once and you have intimate and influential connections with all the important personages of the Union Government. We believe that you would certainly use your good offices to get the relief as sought for by us.

Hoping to be excused

Through the Hon’ble Deputy Commissoner /District Magistrate Codagu(Coorg)Madikeri-571201-Karnataka MEMORANDUM

Dear Sirs,

Sub: A New Delhi Chalo program by CNC and proposal to hold a Sathyagraha at National Capital on 01 Nov 2015. Insisting the Union Govt to re-play the game as it did in the year 1991 with regard to the erstwhile part ‘C’ State of Delhi after 36 years. And assign Union Territory status to Kodagu to be renamed as Union Territory of Codava land under Articles 2& 3 of our Constitution. – 100 members Codava Volunteers will squat in a Sathyagraha in the vicinity of Janthar MNanthar Parliament Street New Delhi thereafter will submit a detailed memorandum to the President and Union Govt.

It always is better if one goes deeply into the recent History of Delhi with that of Kodagu (Coorg). From 1952 to 1955 Delhi was a ‘C’ Type State (As is generally known that Shri Jawaharlal Nehru and G.B Panth prevailed upon the State re-Organization Commission to abolish State hood of Delhi and convert the same to be a Municipal Corporation understandably with a solitary intention of ousting Shri Chowdhri Bhrama Prakash the then Chief Minister of Delhi which resulted in the suppression of the natural aspirations of Delhi citizens). The Union Govt diluted the State hood Status of Delhi into Metropolitan Council on the basis of the recommendation of the State Reorganization Commission headed by justice Fazal Ali from 1955 and it remained so until 1991, and once again on the insistence of the general Civil society of Delhi and in reality it amounts to the realization of the past blunder, when once again Union Territory Status was conferred on Delhi with a new nomenclature as National Capital Territory of Delhi under a new insertion to the Constitution of India as articles 2&3 read with Articles 239AA. If we make a comparative study of the recent history of Kodagu with that of Delhi, we find a close similarity as between the two. A ‘C’ type State of Coorg merged with the state of Mysore; now Karnataka in the year 1956 once again consequent to the mischief played by the State re-Organization Commission headed by justice Fazal Ali. We believe that the some conspiracy identical to the one that transpired as between Jawaharlal Nehru and G.B Panth in order to abolish the Statehood of Delhi in the year 1955. It continues to be the very same even now. If Union Govt felt the need to feel the breath of the population while it reconverted the Civic – administrative body of Municipal Corporation of Delhi into a full fledged Politico – administrative Union Territory with a proper Legislative Assembly in the year 1991.

Our Organization i.e CNC took its birth only to reclaim Statehood initially since consequent upon amendment to the Constitution in renaming the ‘C’ Type States as Union Territories we too have changed our claim for the re -establishment of Coorg with a descriptive Codava Land Union Territory under Articles 2&3 of our Constitution and we stick to it. No doubt if the Union Govt could determine to re - establish a Statehood ; now Union Territory Status to Delhi, why not the same yard stick be made applicable with the claim for Union Territory of Codava Land of Coorg . Now we want the Union Govt to carry out the realization of the past mistake as mentioned and fulfill the definitive natural aspirations of Codava race at least now by conferring Codava land UT Status to Coorg. Such a thing is very essential if the disparity that has been applied to Kodagu and Codava race by the Successive State Govts in Karnataka we sincerely feel that with the things prevail just now the future of generality in Kodagu is felt to be very bleak. Our present Prime Minister has been speaking a lot extolling about the importance of Army and our Soldier Community these days why not our respectful P.M make applicable his mind to such a thing even with regard to Codavas by race who historically proved ourselves to be effective warriors and Soldiers always fighting for the Unity and Security of our Great Country by conferring UT Status to Coorg.

If the Union Govt could feel the aspirations of the generality of Delhi after 36 long years why not the same yardstick should be made applicable to the question of Kodagu even though it remains a disrespected part and parcel of Karnataka during the past over 59 years. Kodagu i.e Coorg, the Cradle of Military genius Codava Martial Race and it has its own Cultural heritage, Civilization, Language, Customary personal laws, way of thinking, Demographic mosaic, Topographical feature, and unique Geo - political aspiration to be renamed as Union Territory of Codava land.

With such a background we are determined to stick to our theory and press forward our claim and we certainly try to make the Union Govt feel our aspirations as we did during the past 25 years. Once again we are certain to exhibit our wish to disown our status as a District of Karnataka with such a determination our organization would hold a Sathyagraha on State re-Organization day i.e on Karnataka Rajyotsava day on 01-11-2015 ; but never to celebrate a State re-Organization day. It definitely is intended to be for the establishment of Union Territory Status of Codava land. Each and every soul inhabited in Kodagu/Coorg are breathing with us.

It may not be an out of place act on our part if we are permitted to mention the behavior of successive Union Governments while it converted the following erstwhile part ‘C’ states except Coorg (part ‘C’ States Ajmer, Bhopal,Bilaspur, Coorg, Himachal Pradesh, Kutch, Manipur, Tripura and Vindhya Pradesh.) into either Union Territories or State hood or Autonomous development bodies with the special Constitutional protections either under 6th Schedule or Article 371, but nothing has been mentioned with regard to Kodagu/Coorg. Now it is most appropriate time to seize the opportunity and establish Union Territory of Codava land in order to set right the historical wrong, blunder and fallacy committed in the year 1956 while Kodagu/Coorg became merged with a larger State and dislodge Kodagu from the Shackles of the tyrannical, rapacious and hegemonic State of Karnataka at once.

Thanking you,

PS Our Charter of Demands as mentioned below:-

  1. We demand a permanent political package to grant Codava land with Union Territory status for Coorg under articles 2 & 3 of our Constitution.      
  2. Autonomy to Codava land under the 6th schedule of our Constitution.
  3. We demand Tribal status to Codavas by race under articles 340 and 342 of our Constitution.
  4. Codava thak should be included in the 8th schedule of our Constitution.
  5. Protect our land tenure under article 371 of our Constitution.
  6. Exclusive Codava nominated representation in the parliament and assembly should be given under article 331 of our Constitution.
  7. Devati Paramb massacre  ( massacred by Tippu in the year 1785)- we insist for a national monument of that memorial on the lines of Jallian walabagh in memory of Amritsar massacre.
  8. Under Indian Arms act 1959 section 3 & 4  for carry and posses fire arms by Codavas and Jamma holders should be continued and protected for ever without any hindrance.
  9. Demand for the implementation of the recommendations made by Constitution review Commission of India on the insistence of Codava National Council for the creation of Coorg Development Board under article 371 of (Please note : Chapter 8 Union State relation 8.23.1 of CRC report) as has been done in relation to touching Hyderabad Karnataka Region - appropriate amendment to the Constitution is desirable at once.

Without any reservation we would like to inform you that Two stone carved Elephants Statue at the entrance of Shri Bhangandeshwara Temple are damaged by Coward cruel Tippu Sulthan and his rapacious Soldiers during his continuous destructive invasions to Coorg during 1770’s and it certainly acts as bad Omen according to the Codava belief and Hindu Dharmashastra if you believe that the two stone carved elephants are to be preserved, better you take them to District Archeological Museum at Madikeri and replace the same with beautiful figures before 17 Oct 2015 on which day the Cauvery Tula Sankramana would be celebrated.

Your failure to replace the Elephant figures on or before this Tulasankramana, please take notice that CNC will hold Human Chain program to protest the same in the vicinity of the temple at Bagamandala.

Dear Sir,

Sub: PIL initiated against the special privilege offered in the Indian Arms Act 1959 in Section 3&4 for Codavas and Jamma holders to carry fire Arms is a negation of snatching of the privilege so offered. - let not the Govt Violates the fundamental rights and our human rights as are enshrined in the Constitution of India by disturbing the entire class of Codavas who are known to be very strict, patriotic and loyal to our great Nation. The enigma so generated should stop at once. There is no locus stand.

A Division Bench, comprising acting Chief Justice Subhro Kamal Mukherjee

And Justice B.V. Nagarathna, asked the petitioner, Chethan Y.K, a resident of Bengaluru, to submit a representation on his grievance about exemption to the Union Ministry of Home Affairs within two weeks.

The Bench also asked the Secretary, MHA to dispose of the representation within three months.

1963 notification

As per a notification issued on July 6, 1963, under the Arms Act, “every person of Coorg race (Kodavas) and every Jamma tenure holder in Coorg” are exempted from securing licence for possessing firearms.

Claiming that the continuation of the exemption, granted to some class of persons by the British government in pre-independent India in furtherance of their divide-and-rule policy, was unconstitutional, as it was based on irrational, fictitious and discriminatory grounds, such as race and ancestral land tenure, it was contended in the petition.

Since the matter involved happened to be a thing connected with Codava Race and its ancient heritage we seem it fit to oppose the subject matter which happend to be the theme of an PIL writ petition initiated by one Mr. Captain Y.K Chethan, a retired short service commissioned Officer and we oppose the move with all sincerity and vehemence. The Hon’ble High Court while disposing of the PIL directed the petitioner to make a regular application to Union Ministry of Home Affairs within 2 weeks seeking relief thereafter and also the Hon’ble High Court directed the secretary MHA to dispose of the petition within 3 months after such a petition is to be filed within 2 weeks after Hon’ble High Court handed down the judgement. Even before we touch the subject in question we proposed to remind all the concerned that such previlages as is in question just now is simply not restricted to Codavas by race. For instance Naga’s are empowered to carry and retain a long metallic sphere with each of them every time. Sikhs have right to carry sharp sword with them every time, Gorkha’s can carry Kukri’s and Mizo’s are empowered to retain and exhibit their ancient customary rights. For instance a Khalsa Regiment strictly only to Sikhs a Regiment in Indian Army and it has permitted the carrying of a 1 feet Sword by every Sikh component. In the like manner there are Regiments under the name and style as Gorkha regiment which has been empowered to carry a Kukri by every Gorkha soldiers. After all all such rights and practices have been drawn from respective ancient practices and Folk legal systems strict only to such of the racial groups from time immemorial. Those British rulers have continued the ancient rights and such things never been the result of their imagination. After all our Constitution came into being only in the year 1950. Nothing of the said practice is in violation of the privileges extended

under article 14 of our constitution.

In fact our Constitution is the continuation of the legacy of the West Minister system.

Afterall a good majority of all the provisions of our Constitution used to be in existence legally much prior to the coming into the practice of our Constitution. Take for instance the Patriarch of our Constitution i.e MAGNA CHARTA – the Great English Charter of Liberty got from King John in 1215 and

the Govt of India Act 1935 came into being by the Britishers only and both the Statutes have been handed down and strictly implemented by the British Rulers only. This does not stop with that our major enactments are the legacy of British Govts in essence the theme involved in IPC and CRPC in effect are the continuation of the legislation practiced by British rulers only and abolition of Sathi act, Widow Remarriage act and abolition of Child Marriage act all are the legacy of Britishers.

In order to curb the Criminal activities of “Pindari” resistance in and around Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh during the period of Sipoy Mutiny the British Govt has envisaged and introduced “Pindari” Act. Pindaris are known to create law and order problem in the area and banditry coupled with killing and looting of weapons from British Army and properties and their activities against the state incidentally “Sipoy Mutiny” also did so their atrocious behavior against the State which forced the British govt to introduce a “Pindari” Act and Disarmament Act. Fortunately not a single word about any Codava rising in Mutiny with the help of fire arms against the Govt for a single Moment. It is only in order to continue the special privileges accorded to Codavas to carry and retain Fire arms. The far sighted Mark Cubban has promulgated and has supported Codavas to continue our rights and privileges. The promulgation of Mark Cubban reads thus.

Notification 26-02-1861

“ in consideration of the exalted honour, loyalty and intrepidity, characteristics of this little Nation of warriors and in recollection of its conspicuous services in aid of the British Govt, it is my pleasing Duty to notify hereby, for general information, in virtue of the power vested in me by the Govt of India, that the provisions of the act, commonly called disarming Act are not applicable to the gallant people of Coorg”

Signed.

Using of Gun is a customary practice amongst Codava Race. During the Male child births in the family, during Marriage celebrations and Rituals connected with deaths in the family and all festivals, no Codava is known to have misused fire arms against the State,

  1. During Freedom struggle
  2. When Coorg State become merged in the year 1956 with the state of Mysore, now Karnataka.
  3. During the period of Emergency in the year 1975.
  4. During the period of periodic General Elections and
  5. During the change of Govts.   

Afterall fire arms to every Codavas is an Article of Worship and great reverence always reposited under the “Nellakki Nadubade” of every “Ainmane” and

individual Homes. Fire Arms is as well a religious symbol and cultural emblem for every born Codava. Nodoubt true it is a part and partial of every Codava traditional attire with, Kupya (Long Coat) Peechi Katthi, Qumar Bandh and Fire arms is complete and Codava traditional attire becomes complete with such articles only. Every ancient Codava used to posses and carry sword, Bow & Arrow along with sphere. Until such times when Babar introduced fire arms weapons in India.

The present PIL in question is an example of normal behavior of intruders, money bags and interested Tycoons swarming into Kodagu from outside with a solitary intention of Disarming of Codavas in order to enliven their evil designs have been propagating the theme against the special privileges of Codavas to carry Fire arms. At the same time the Govt of Karnataka which also has been trying to curb and eliminate Codavas is supporting such evil designs of the present writ petition. It may be understood that the Govt of Karnataka with an idea of avoiding comments and revolt from Codavas as instigated someone to filing of the PIL.

The main theme of our Constitution is to protect the Unity in Diversity & Diversity in Unity of our Demographic Mosaic within amongst the citizens of India. It is with such an idea only our Constitution has extended reservations to various tribal groups scheduled castes and special protection for religious, linguistic and ethnic minorities and their respective languages.

More ever our Govt has continued the legacy of the British rulers in keeping alive such caste based traditions and formalities touching groups and caste and communities in India For Ex: there is a Coorg 37 Medium rifles for Codavas and Coorg, there is a Sikh / Khlasa regiment for Sikhs, likewise there is a Rajputhan regiment for Rajputs, Marata regiment for Marathas, Mahar regiment for Mahar dalits, Kummou regiment for Kummou people, Gadwal regiment for Gadwal people, Jaat regiment for Jaats, Dogra regiment for Dogra people, Gorkha regiment for Gorkha people etc, etc and nothing is opposed the theme has enshrined in our Constitution.

As regards the protection for land tenure held by different class of

people has enshrined in our Constitution, the relief sought for by the petitioner against protection of Land tenure extended to Codavas his claim becomes a nullity in law if the Govt taken in account such special prevelege extended to different classes of peoples to hold lands such as Kashmiris under article 370 and the people of the 8 North Eastern states in India under Article 371 of our Constitution. Simply said the existence and belief of our Nation hood is akin to a common banquet with a variety of flowers and the same is enlivened in our Constitution. Strictly said the petition reflects the mental derangement of the person the writ petition is seem to have known the existence of different classes of people with different belief language and customary practices and folk legal systems in India. Strictly speaking the PIL writ petition is amounts to insult the flowering constitution of India and Nothing more than that. Therefore we desire that Govt be pleased to extend all the clauses touching the special privileges are mentioned above to Codavas should continue without any hindrance, let not the Govt Violates the fundamental rights and our human rights as are enshrined in the Constitution of India by disturbing the entire class of Codavas who are known to be very strict, patriotic and loyal to our Great Nation. The enigma so generated should stop at once. There is no locus stand hence the petition filed by mallafied intention may be closed in the interest of justice and equity.

MEMORANDUM

UNDER THE LEADERSHIP OF SHRI N.U NACHAPPA CODAVA A HUMAN CHAIN PROGRAM CONDUCTED UNDER THE AEGIES OF CODAVA NATIONAL COUNCIL AT KAKKABBE ON THIS DAY I.E ON 21-09-2015, DEMANDING CODAVA LAND AND TO COMMEMORATE THE CELEBRATIONS TO MARK THE 25TH ANNIVERSARY (SILVER JUBILEE) OF CNC’S STRUGGLE FOR CODAVA LAND AS “CODAVA NATIONAL DAY.”
And
National Monument should be erected at Devati Paramb on the lines of jallian walabagh
And
The purpose for which the organization was established.

We take pleasure to inform about the purposeful completion of 24 years of the existence, and the continuation of Codava National Council and the incessant & our eventful political struggle for the demands of the establishment of Codava land UT status under articles 2&3 of our Constitution, Codava land Autonomous region under the 6th Schedule of our Constitution, Constitutional special protection to Codava Martial tribal Race under articles 340 & 342 of our Constitution, inclusion of Codava Thakk in the 8th schedule of our Constitution, coupled with protection for the Land tenure, customary practices and folk legal systems of Codava race including the continuation of right to hold Guns under article 371 of our Constitution on the lines of protection extended to Mizo’s and Naga’s. Special nomination of Codava race to Parliament and Assemblies under article 331 of our Constitution on the lines of Anglo Indians. Our demand includes the establishment of National monument at Devati Paramb on the lines of Jallian Walla bagh.

  1. It is a fact that Modi Govt has entered a pact with NSCN (I-M) granting Naga people with a “shared sovereignty” with India on 3 Aug 2015 in order to strengthen our federal system. – we demand a permanent political package to grant Codava Land with UT status under articles 2&3 of our constitution as done with Naga question.
  2. The said fact includes granting Naga Patkai Autonomy to Naga inhabited areas in the state of Arunachal Pradesh and our demands also include granting Autonomy to Codava land under the 6th schedule of our Constitution.
  3. We demand Tribal status to Codavas by race under articles 340 – 342 of our Constitution. We take pleasure to remind the Govt about the inclusion of Jain Community as religious minority even though they are known to be the wealthiest people in India besides being Hindus in real sense. Jaats are also granted OBC status despite the fact that they are economically, politically and socially most affluent class of people spread over in 9 states of our country. The Rajasthan state has granted tribal status to violent Gujjars whose numbers exceeds 8crore in the country. Even though Codavas by Race historically are known to be a Martial Class in Nature and numbering a meager 1 ½ lakhs population and that no other class of people would be affected or jeo paradize if we are granted with Tribal status. PS. unlike Zoroastrians who are scattered everywhere in the Nation besides being the richest and prominent in the judiciary, industrial arena and in general activities besides being most Cosmopolitan and urbane. They have a separate religion of their own called Zoroastrianism unlike Codavas who are rustic by nature confined to Kodagu /Coorg region. Hence tribal status is fittest for them. 
  4. Codava Thakk / Codava Language is as ancient as human civilization is rich and living spoken language throughout the history fit enough to be included in the 8th schedule of our Constitution. We propose to cite MANORAMA YEAR BOOK which mentions about the 16 popular languages of our country which includes Codava language to strengthen our claim – Manorama year book page 680 - other Popular Languages 1. Angika 2. Awadhi 3. Bhojpuri 4. Bundeli 5. Chhatisgarhi 6. Hariyanavi 7. Hinduatani 8.

Calendar of events:
  1. Pattholadhi at Devati Paramb on 20-10-2015
  2. New Delhi Chalo Sathyagraha on 1-11-2015
  3. Codava National Day celebrations on 24-11-2015
  4. CNC Annual Puthari festival on 25-11-2015 (Birchyar 9)

  7. United Nations Holocaust remembrance day on 27-01-2016 (at Devati Paramb)

Hence we pressurize the Govt to consider our demands positively and as early as possible.

5. The provisions of article 371 of our constitution with inner line permit should be made applicable to Kodagu region at once as has been done in relation to Manipur and other North Eastern states. With a solitary intention of protecting our land from alienation and protecting our demography and such a things called as inner line permit. Important factor is that large number of underworld dons regular miscreants with harden criminality, and business Tycoons from across the Country with the active support and assistance from Hawala agencies and fake currency racketeers have been grabbing lands in the this District. With a major idea of protecting lands in the district and the interest of the natives the promulgation of such stringent law within Coorg is warranted.

6. Exclusive codava nominated representation in the parliament and state Assembly should be given under article 331 of our Constitution on the lines of Anglo Indian community.

7. Devati Paramb massacre – a tragic human holocaust in the mankind – Insist for National Memorial / Monument of that Memorial on the lines of Jallianwala Bagh in memory of Amritsar Massacre. in memory of those Codava families (approximately 60 thousand unarmed Codavas) who were masssacred by ruthless tippu sulthan of srirangapatna and his rapacious soldiers, after 3 continuous invasions Tippu got defeated by Codava warriors disapointing in this insult he conspired to eliminate entire codava martial tribal race, cunningly invited them for a grand feast in the pretext of entering a friendly treaty with Codavas at Devati Paramb in the year 1785 13 December. This heinous inhuman tragic genocide/holocaust in the mankind happened in this place. – but their great souls are still alive in Devati Paramb. PS All the proposals placed by CNC touching the request for treating Devati Parambu as National Monument are being hijacked and poached. The miscreants have not left, one single comma, semicolon, full stop, Subjects and Thok Namme etc., and the body language of all the communications, all the public lectures and statements of our leader verbatim. They have not even allowed untouched the dress code of CNC and contents of all the wordings of our official lettered in order to play miss chief we expect fellows to distort the very nature of the movement we are leading. They try to confuse the Government, the Press and the general public always. Therefore we cushion the general public, the media and the Governmental setup to be very careful about the unhealthy and diabolic mischievous activities of these Jackals .

8. This organization CNC held a Sathyagraha in the vicinity of the office of the DC Kodagu Madikeri this day on 14-Sep-2015 in order to pressurize our prime demands as are mentioned above and awareness human chain program would be conducted thereafter in all villages and towns in the District – as the first human chain program of the season would be held at Kakkabbe on 21-Sep-2015 and followed by the one at Napoklu on 28-Sep-2015 and 5-Oct-2015 at Kutta and the like.

We take pleasure to remind the Govt about the inclusion of Jain Community as religious minority even though they are known to be the wealthiest people in India besides being Hindus in real sense. Jaats are also granted OBC status despite the fact that they are economically, politically and socially most affluent class of people spread over in 9 states of our country. The Rajasthan state has granted tribal status to violent Gujjars whose numbers exceeds 8crore in the country. Even though Codavas by Race historically are known to be a Martial Class in Nature and numbering a meager 1 ½ lakhs population and that no other class of people would be affected or geo paradise if we are granted with Tribal status. PS. unlike Zoroastrians who are scattered everywhere in the Nation besides being the richest and prominent in the judiciary, industrial arena and in general activities besides being most Cosmopolitan and urbane. They have a separate religion of their own called Zoroastrianism unlike Codavas who are rustic by nature confined to Kodagu /Coorg region. Hence tribal status is fittest for them.

4. Codava Thakk / Codava Language is as ancient as human civilization is rich and living spoken language throughout the history fit enough to be included in the 8th schedule of our Constitution. We propose to cite MANORAMA YEAR BOOK which mentions about the 16 popular languages of our country which includes Codava language to strengthen our claim – Manorama year book page 680 - other Popular Languages 1. Angika 2. Awadhi 3. Bhojpuri 4. Bundeli 5. Chhatisgarhi 6. Hariyanavi 7. Hinduatani 8. Kanauji 9. Magadhi 10. Marwari 11. Bhili 12. Gondi 13. Kodava 14. Kutchi 15. Thulu 16. Mahi.

5. The provisions of article 371 of our constitution with inner line permit should be made applicable to Kodagu region at once as has been done in relation to Manipur and other North Eastern states. With a solitary intention of protecting our land from alienation and protecting our demography and such a things called as inner line permit. Important factor is that large number of underworld dons regular miscreants with harden criminality, and business Tycoons from across the Country with the active support and assistance from Hawala agencies and fake currency racketeers have been grabbing lands in the this District. With a major idea of protecting lands in the district and the interest of the natives the promulgation of such stringent law within Coorg is warranted.

6. Exclusive codava nominated representation in the parliament and state Assembly should be given under article 331 of our Constitution on the lines of Anglo Indian community.

7. Devati Paramb massacre – a tragic human holocaust in the mankind – Insist for National Memorial / Monument of that Memorial on the lines of Jallianwala Bagh in memory of Amritsar Massacre. in memory of those Codava families (approximately 60 thousand unarmed Codavas) who were masssacred by ruthless tippu sulthan of srirangapatna and his rapacious soldiers, after 3 continuous invasions Tippu got defeated by Codava warriors disapointing in this insult he conspired to eliminate entire codava martial tribal race, cunningly invited them for a grand feast in the pretext of entering a friendly treaty with Codavas at Devati Paramb in the year 1785 13 December. This heinous inhuman tragic genocide/holocaust in the mankind happened in this place. – but their great souls are still alive in Devati Paramb.

This organization CNC proposes to hold a Sathyagraha in the vicinity of the office of the DC Kodagu Madikeri on 14-Sep-2015 in order to pressurize our prime demands as are mentioned above and awareness human chain program would be conducted thereafter in all villages and towns in the District – as the first human chain program of the season would be held at Kakkabbe on 21-Sep-2015 and followed by the one at Napoklu on 28-Sep-2015 and 5-Oct-2015 at Kutta and the like.

Calendar of events:

1. Pattholadhi at Devati Paramb on 20-10-2015

2. New Delhi Chalo Sathyagraha on 1-11-2015

Respected Sir,

MEMORANDUM

Subject: Seeking the allotment of fund in the ensuing budget session of Parliament and State Budget for National Monuments and Holocaust Museum established at Devattparamb (situated in the forest area of Aiyangeri village) bearing Sy No 2/6P1 in Coorg-Kodagu. - request in the interest of justice and equity.

The above Devattparamb memorial site properties which in fact are under the control of the forest department (C & D Land) situated in the banks of River Cauvery of Aiyyangeri village in Bhagamandala in Coorg where Cruel ruler of Mysore, Tippu Sultan and his soldiers along with French allied forces massacred 60,000 unarmed Codavas. Archaeological Survey of India and Forest Department are directed to develop those heritage site properties as a real memorial for the departed Codava souls, and you may kindly consider allotting budget of rupees 2 Crores sanctioned in the ensuing budget session for the purpose, we feel it is worthy to establish a proper monument and set up a Holocaust Museum of International Standard together with the structures for cultural activities and nature based pilgrimage center. Already Stone carved inscription (Living Memorial) is erected in that site and let not a single piece of land be transferred to any encroachers and business tycoons. The government should protect it as a heritage site. We want you to make sure that the erected stone inscription should not disrespected, since it involves our ancestral sentiments and emotional values and it is sacred for us forever and ever after.

1. Devattparamb, an ancient battle ground of Codava heroes who fought for the freedom and liberation of Codavas, were brutally and cowardly massacred by Tippu of Mysore.

2. In Washington DC, there is a live Holocaust museum in the memory of all the lives of Jews, who lost in Germany due to Hitler's inhumane act.

3. The Government of India and the United Nations should jointly establish a similar live Holocaust Museum of Codavas who lost their precious lives in Devattparamb.

4. Just like the Jallianwalla bagh and the Nagasaki memorial, the Government should make a monument in Devattparamb. By doing so,

a) You will be respecting Codava sentiments

b) The government will be offering tribute for the 60,000 departed Codava souls.

c) There will be an increase in the government income due to the tourists in Talacauvery as it is located very close to Devattparamb. Govt. can attract those pilgrims to Devattparamb.

d) For educational purposes at Nagasaki memorial in Japan and Holocaust museum in Washington DC, students from all over the world go to these places to widen their knowledge and horizons, we could do the same here.

5. Devattparamb is about 10,000 acres. It starts from Chettimani- Badaga, covering Thaunad partially and extends up to Nalnad, on the banks of river Kaveri.

6. It is as wide and large as an ocean, one cannot spot its ending Pilgrims who walk to Talacauvery, pay their respects to the lost Codava souls by offering a small tree branch and a silent prayer in Devatt Paramb. During the past over 231 years Codavas have been worshipping without any break and we have been blessed regularly, no doubt people used to worship but no publicity was ever made and we took the opportunity to publicize the practice..

7. In every Codava family, children grow up listening to this tragic story of how our patriarchs were brutally killed in Devattparamb by Tippu.

8. Even though we were lucky enough to be born 100 years later, the pain and the sorrow will not ever disappear from our mind.

9. There were 1500 clans, but now, there are only 842 clans left and the only one responsible for it is Tippu the so called "Hero".

10. The entire Kodagu (Coorg) was affected but Nalnad, Bengnad, Kadiyathnad, Thaunad, Kuyengerinad and Beppnad were victimized terribly.

11. A land with so many heritages has been encroached, a land that should be considered as a world heritage site.

12. If a couple had 10 or more children, they were publicly honored in the "Ain Mane", the sanctum- sanctorum of Codava race. This tradition was alive until Jawaharlal Nehru introduced family planning in India. Tippu in whole killed and converted about 1 lakh 25 thousand Codavas. On one hand Tippu’s brutal act dwindled a huge number of Codava population, on the other hand, Jawaharlal Nehru’s legal act (legislation of family planning/amending the Hindu Code) did the same for Codavas. The Aramane Kadanga was manually built by Codavas in the bygone era to protect the territory, is the live example of the population in Coorg that was, which resulted is a Kadanga so strong like the “Great Wall of China” which was built just by manual labour, which shows the Codava population strength before the invasion of Tippu. There were no other means of labour then, no Malabari labour nor Bengali labour.

13. Dubare Dargah situated near Nanjiraipatna in Kushalnagar wild life range, people are allowed to participate in Urus festival in that reserve forest game sanctuary. Likewise, Kuttandi/Kuthnad Dargah is situated in the Makutta forest, they are allowed to celebrate their festival and allowed to offer prayers. In Thithimathi range of Nagarhole, it is a prohibited area, where the Maukal temple and Dubare’s Ammalle Amma site, they offer their prayers. Even in Western Ghat's Malai, people are allowed to offer prayers to Malaithamacha Deity. While we take this opportunity to question the honesty of authorities concerned in keeping silence throughout while erected a temple like structure only recently, what they call as Shrine on the side of National Highway at Tithimathi and within the prohibited area of Nagarhole National park, and killing the animals to offering oblation to the unseen deity and large scale feeding would be made at times always. Such being a case, we deem it our duty to inform you that Codavas have installed a regular stone carved inscription like shrine and worship are being carried out and will be continue at a place in Devattparamb situated in the forest area of Aiyangeri village. During the past over 231 years Codavas have been worshipping without any break and we have been blessed regularly, no doubt people used to worship but no publicity was ever made and we took the opportunity to publicize the practice. In fact that is the place where thousands of Codavas have been massacred by Tippu and it definitely is a sacred place to Codavas. Therefore we request you to be good enough to recognize our legitimate right and not to harass or disturb such a thing being carried out in that place for any moment. As per the article, 25 and 26 of our Constitution, is purely enshrined to protect the religious freedom. In accordance to that, CNC is offering prayers for our departed Codava souls at Devattparamb.

Hence, seeking the allotment of fund in the ensuing budget session of Parliament for National Monuments and Holocaust Museum established at Devattparamb bearing Sy No 2/6P1 in Coorg-Kodagu. - request in the interest justice and equity.

Thanking you,

Post Script:-

Memorial erected at Devattparamb to commemorate the tragic massacre that occurred on 13 Dec 1785 of 60,000 Codava martial tribal race by tyrant Tippu Sultan and his rapacious soldiers; great souls of Codavas are still alive in this place.

1. Tippu sultan of Mysore (Srirangapatna) after being defeated on 3 occasions by Codava warriors decided to avenge his defeat.

2. Through his French friend, General Laali, he invited the Codavas to come without arms to a congenial feast to negotiate the peace talks at Devattparamb, the ancient battle ground of Codavaland situated on the banks of river Kaveri. All Codava warriors along with their wives & children went to attend the feast on that fateful day.

3. Here, ruthless Tippu and his monstrous troops along with French allied forces opened fire on unarmed Codavas and butchered them just like the Jallianwalla bagh massacre & Hitler's concentration camp massacre.

4. Innocent Codava women were raped, around 65 thousand Codava survivors including children were captured and taken to Srirangapatna & tortured, persecuted and forcibly indoctrinated into embracing Islam.

5. The massacre and pillage is documented in the historical records maintained by the official historian of Tippu sultan's court, Mir Hussain Ali Khan Kirmani. This is also authenticated in The Chronicle “Tippu x-rayed” and the “Coorg Gazetteer” of 1870 documented by Rev. Fr. G. Richter.

6. This is an inhuman tragic ethnic genocide in the annals of mankind. The barbaric act of Tippu was silently witnessed by Lord Iggthappa, Kalyatajjappa, our ancestors (Karona), life line river Kaveri, holy mother earth, grand summits of Thadiyandamol & Brahmagiri mountains, the sun & the moon.

7. The River Cauvery was colored red with the blood of the Codavas who were massacred. We are still shedding tears of sorrow in memory of the holocaust.

As a tribute to the departed Codava souls, who have been tragically massacred, CNC demands and Codavas desire to observe Devatt paramb tragic massacre as international holocaust remembrance day & also include it in the international holocaust remembrance list of the UNO.

Erected on 21st December 2015

The Rajasthan state has granted Tribal status to violent Gujjars whose numbers exceeds 8crore in the country. Even though Codavas by Race historically are known to be a Martial Class in Nature and numbering a meager 1 ½ lakhs population and that no other class of people would be affected or Jeopardize if we are granted with Tribal status. PS. Unlike Zoroastrians who are scattered everywhere in the Nation besides being the richest and prominent in the judiciary, Industrial arena and in general activities besides being most Cosmopolitan and urbane.

With a solitary intention of protecting our land from alienation and protecting our demography and such a thing called as “inner line permit”. Important factor is that large number of underworld dons, regular miscreants with harden criminality, and business Tycoons from across the Country with the active support and assistance from Hawala agencies and fake currency racketeers have been grabbing lands in the this District. With a major idea of protecting lands in the district and the interest of the natives the promulgation of such stringent law within Coorg is warranted.

6. Exclusive Codava nominated representation in the Parliament and Assembly on the lines of Anglo Indians should be given under article 331 of our Constitution.

7. Devati Paramb massacre – a tragic human holocaust in the mankind – We Insist for National Memorial / Monument of that Memorial on the lines of Jallianwala Bagh in memory of Amritsar Massacre.

…………………………………………. Dear Sir/Madam,

A peaceful Sathyagraha by Codavas at Janthar Manthar on 01-11-2015

A group of Codavas (Coorgis) headed by Shri N.U. Nachappa Codava, President

Codava National Council (CNC), have held a peaceful satyagraha at Jantar Mantar on 01 November 2015, from 10.30 a.m. till 3.30 p.m. to create consciousness and urge the Government for their long standing demand for union territory, tribal status and autonomous region, as elaborated below.

Under the aegis of Codava National Council/CNC Codava Codavthis volunteers in their traditional attire have squatted in a Sathyagraha at Janthar Manthar, New Delhi , to pressurize our 24 years old demand for the establishment of Codava Land / Codava Sthan Union Territory Status to Coorg now in Karnataka coupled with assigning Autonomous region, on 1 Nov 2015 and observation of Karnataka Rajyothsava Day as black day. All the participants have traveled from different corners of Coorg District in South West Karnataka with an intention of taking part in the agitation in the manner of Sathyagraha. After the Sathyagraha we have presented a detailed Memorandum to the Union Government of India. Programme started from 9:30 AM and it terminated at 1:30 PM. We are struggling for a positive result touching our long pending demands as are mentioned above.

Declaration of Codava Land U.T is warranted

MEMORANDUM
Respected Sirs,

. Sub: Declare Codava Region in Coorg, Karnataka to be an Union Territory. i.e. Codava Land Union Territory under articles 2 & 3 of our Constitution since it fulfils all the required criterion and qualifications on par with the 11 points guideline prescribed in the Constitution of India with regard to the Constitution of Union Territories in India- request for.

Without any need to introduce ourselves to be the one and the only organization established with the sole purpose of getting established Autonomous Codava Land, we take this opportunity to bring to your kind notice the 11 point criterion as are prescribed in the Constitution of India for the Constitution of Union Territories . We would like to inform you that Codava Land Coorg fulfils all the required qualifications in that regard and it may not be an out of place act on our part if we may be permitted to inform you that the State of Karnataka after the merger of the then ‘ C ’ type of state of Coorg i.e., the traditional Codava home land, with the State of Karnataka in the year 1956. The successive Governments and all the concerned there with have seized the opportunity to discriminate this region and indigenous Codava race and natives and in reality

2. we have been suffering all the anomalies inflicted by our Government. The Government of Karnataka deliberately has discriminated against Codava Region with a solitary intention of erasing the very existence of the native people, Codava race and render the entire area to disuser and spoil our soil, cultural heritage, language and aboriginal indigenes Codava identity and historic existence in totality, besides causing insecurity in all spheres. The only method to safe guard the entire region ; the then “C” State of Coorg. The Cultural heritage of the people and the financial background of the region can be caused done by declaring this region to be an Union Territory under the direct control of the Union Government.

The successive Karnataka Government has considered this region to be an occupied territory in a war, treating the region a resource generating colony besides continuously having ill-treated the natives here. Added to it State of Karnataka has treated the native Codavas to be the subjects of their occupied territory and never as a citizens proper. Forget not the fact that each and every Codava regardless of status has contributed his might much beyond his capacity to rescue the boundaries of India and safeguard the interest of our mother country, needless to add that Codava’s are a martial race to every inch and not a single Codava family is not without a member in active military service. Despite Coorg being the known cradle of warriors has been and continuously being marginalised, excluded, neglected and disrespected intentionally with a solitary idea of erasing its existence totally. Despite the fact that the president of India has ratified the Karnataka Land Revenue amendment Act 2011 touching the confirmation of absolute ownership and tittle over the ancient jamma tenure lands in Codagu and even though Gazette notification has been published, the always corrupt and treacheries officialdom in Revenue department deputed by state Govt have proved themselves to be still more lethargic and dishonest and they deliberately play fraud with the natives by suppressing the law that prevails just now. It looks certain that the Karnataka Govt. has been in the process of using traitor Codavas as human shield in order to cover up its intentional wrong doings against Codagu & Codavas in general.

The rapacious and tyrannical behavior of everyone concerned with the Government of Karnataka is continuing without any stop Therefore we would like to re-iterate a fact that now time is ripe to get eradicated all the anomalies caused by the Government of Karnataka. A declaration of Codava Land Union Territory to that effect is clearly warranted in the attending circumstances. Codava Land U.T. is more essential, humane and deserving. It may be recalled that at the time of reorganization of states on 1 November 1956, parts of erstwhile Hyderabad Nizam province were merged with Karnataka (then state of Mysore), Maharashtra and Andhra Pradesh. If Bidar, Gulbarga and Raichur became parts of Hyderabad Karnataka, the parts merged with Maharashtra came to be identified as Marathawada region. The parts merged with Vishalandra. Later that entire region got identified as Telangana.

But as regarding Coorg is concerned it was a separate ‘C’ type state altogether once again Codagu also became a part and parcel of Vishala Karnataka (Vishala Mysore then) on the very same day i.e.: on 1 November 1956. Already Union Govt has created Telangana as the 29th State of Indian Union and also assigned special politico - Economic package to Hyderabad Karnataka region under article 371 of our Constitution. It is time that our long felt need is supported and Union Territory of Codava Land is carved out with a special Bill to be moved.

3.The State Re - Organization Commission has cunningly deviated from the theme when it came about the existence of the State of Coorg with one Single language being spoken generally. Whatever has encouraged the State Re Organization Commission (SRC) to suppress the existence of “C” State of Coorg with Codava Language being the most popular spoken language of the erstwhile State of Coorg is not under stood. Now with the creation of one more Telugu speaking State the authorities deliberately played false on the very theme as expounded in the Constitution of India and so by merging a single language i.e Codava Thakk spoken of the State of Coorg with that of State of Mysore, Now Karnataka. Generally Speaking none can deny the fact that regions what CNC has been pressurizing to be treated as Union Territory & Autonomous Codava Land under the 6th Schedule of our Constitution and in other words the SRC has throttled Codava race by merging Codagu/Coorg with Mysore, may be in their own vested interest or at the behest of others, say ruling class.

As the creation of one more Telugu speaking State as the State of Telangana has been a unscientific act on the part of the Govts the avoidance to restore the Codava Thakk Speaking part “C” state of Coorg’s Status is at another example for most unscientific act. Now coming to the main question in issue we would like to remind you a fact that 1.The Govt has exceeded its powers while it created a second Telugu speaking State of Telangana. 2. Despite such a reality the residual State of Andhra rose in opposition for the creation of Telangana. 3. There absolutely is no need for the recommendation of any State Govt or State Legislature to create such of the States or creation of Autonomous regions in India( Amending the articles 2, 3 and 4 for new states or Union Territories and Amending the Schedule 6th for Autonomous regions) such a thing has been evidenced with the carving out of a second State of Telugu speaking region i.e State of Telangana. No recommendation of any State Legislature is not required.

Following are the criterion fixed in the Constitution touching the Constitution of U.T.

01. Union Territories are ruled directly by the Union Government (Central Government)

02. The President of India appoints an administrator or Lieutenant – Governor for each U.T.

03. Union Territories of India have special rights and status due to their Constitutional formation and development.

04. For safeguarding the rights of Indigenous cultures, averting political turmoil related to matters of governance.

05. All the Tax money goes to center as a U.T., region will be able to attract central funds exclusively for its development.

06. Union Territories serve the purpose of administering regions which are small yet diverse may be because of their history or culture or geography.

07. Correct the anomaly caused by the reorganization of States which took place in 1956.

08. Sustain the economic, linguistic and cultural affinities of the region.

09. Politically, economically and educationally as they are in varying phases of development Central Government can take care of them without discrimination.

10. Administration as U.T will not drain the public exchequer.

11. Apart from improving the administrative setup move would help instill a sense of security among those from other regions of the state, who despite their decades - long stay in the region are feeling the jitters. With a solitary idea of managing the affairs of any certain given area and also to make it known that the particular area is being governed properly and justice reaches to each and everyone, the Constitution framers have after much discussion and studying elaborately about the attending features of any particular given group of Towns and areas have formulated the idea of creating Union Territories in contrast with larger states. Before terming any particular area to be made Union Territory the Constitution framers have deeply studied about the topographical features

4.Geo-political aspirations of the indigenous people of that particular areas besides historical back ground and Economic criteria until that point of time. Added to it they have attempted to make an in-depth study in to the language and culture of the indigenous people of that area and such other attending features. Take instance for the cases of 7 Union Territories in India .

01. (a) Puduchery (b) Pondichery (c) Mahe (d) Yenam (e) Karaikal.

02. Dadra & Nagara Haveli.

03. Daman & Dive.

04. Andaman & Nicobar Islands.

05. Lakshadweepa.

06. Chandigarh.

07.Delhi National Capital Territory.

ECONOMIC VIABILITY FOR THE FORMATION OF CODAVA LAND U.T.

To assert our economic viability for the formation of U.T the point No.5 mentions about the economic base and fund raiser in the manner of tax to be extracted to the Union Government which in turn remits a substantial thereof to the developmental programs Union Territory if it created. The financial resources from Coffee production, Forest wealth, Royalty from Cauvery waters and promotion of Tourism shall last until Sun and Moon exists and Union Governments must remember for this real truthful fact.

The things explained below fulfils criterion for Economic viability ( budgetary provisions). 1.Our Coffee ( Coorg Coffee) is classified to be the best in world. After Petroleum Coffee is the Second largest traded commodity in the world. India is considered to be the 6th largest Coffee producer in the world, and Coorg produces an average 40% of total national production. Enough if we arrive at a conclusion that gross foreign exchange from Coffee India earns every year is around Rs. 5 thousand Crores and it is safest method to add that Codagu supplies 40% of it. 2.The flora & fauna and never hazardous perennial rivulets and water falls are exceptional only to Coorg. The lasting long forest wealth in Codagu is considered to be the best carbon supplier in the world. 3. Added to it the average annual yield of Cauvery river waters from Coorg exceeds 180 TMC feet. (The lifeline of South India River Cauvery has taken its birth in Coorg, particularly at Talacauvery). 4. What more, the role of income from tourism activities ( The panoramic natural beauty, innumerable hillocks, pleasing natural atmosphere, added to it the kindly people are worth mentioning. It would be right if Coorg is termed as Gods own paradise on earth) Codagu stands next only to that of Isthanbul in world should Codava Land of Coorg be classified as Union Territory. It is very easy to take these features to be the main budgetary base for the maintenance and management of the Union Territories sought to be created. No doubt the actual money supply is addressed to the Union Governament and it is just practical to understand the money shall be allotted from the Union Government to this region ( Coorg) should it become a separate U.T. and unconnected with the State of Karnataka.

5.Hence C.N.C demands for the immediate creation of Codava Land Union Territory in the interest of justice and equity.

Thanking you,

P:S:- In the nature of addenda we seek your kind permission to request you to read the following lines which in fact are the main contents of our charter of demands.

They are as follows:

1. We demand a permanent political package to grant Codava land with Union Territory status for Coorg under articles 2 & 3 of our Constitution.

2. Autonomy to Codava land under the 6th schedule of our Constitution.

3. Incorporate Codava Martial tribal Race in the Schedule list if our Constitution under articles 340 and 342 of our Constitution. We demand Tribal status to Codavas by race under articles 340 – 342 of our Constitution. We take pleasure to remind the Govt about the inclusion of Jain Community as religious minority even though they are known to be the wealthiest people in India besides being Hindus in real sense. Jaats are also granted OBC status despite the fact that they are economically, politically and socially most affluent class of people spread over in 9 states of our country. The Rajasthan state has granted Tribal status to violent Gujjars whose numbers exceeds 8crore in the country. Even though Codavas by Race historically are known to be a Martial Class in Nature and numbering a meager 1 ½ lakhs population and that no other class of people would be affected or Jeoparadize if we are granted with Tribal status. PS. Unlike Zoroastrians who are scattered everywhere in the Nation besides being the richest and prominent in the judiciary, Industrial arena and in general activities besides being most Cosmopolitan and urbane. They have a separate religion of their own called Zoroastrianism unlike Codavas who are rustic by nature confined to Kodagu /Coorg region. Hence Tribal status is fittest for them.

4. Codava thakk should be included in the 8th schedule of our Constitution. Codava Thakk / Codava Language is as ancient as human civilization is rich and living spoken language throughout the history fit enough to be included in the 8th schedule of our Constitution. We propose to cite MANORAMA YEAR BOOK 2015 which mentions about the 16 popular languages of our Country which includes Codava language to strengthen our claim – Manorama year book page 680 - Other Popular Languages 1. Angika 2. Awadhi 3. Bhojpuri 4. Bundeli 5. Chhatisgarhi 6. Hariyanavi 7. Hinduatani 8. Kanauji 9. Magadhi 10. Marwari 11. Bhili 12. Gondi 13. Kodava 14. Kutchi 15. Thulu 16. Mahi.

5. Protect our land tenure under article 371 of our Constitution with inner line permit on the lines of North - East States of India. Protect our Land tenure under article 371 of our Constitution: (Inner Line Permit) The provisions of article 371 of our Constitution with inner line permit should be made applicable to Kodagu region at once as has been done in relation to Manipur and other North Eastern states. With a solitary intention of protecting our land from alienation and protecting our demography and such a thing called as “inner

6.line permit”. Important factor is that large number of underworld dons, regular miscreants with harden criminality, and business Tycoons from across the Country with the active support and assistance from Hawala agencies and fake currency racketeers have been grabbing lands in the this District. With a major idea of protecting lands in the district and the interest of the natives the promulgation of such stringent law within Coorg is warranted.

6. Exclusive Codava nominated representation in the Parliament and Assembly on the lines of Anglo Indians should be given under article 331 of our Constitution.

7. Devati Paramb massacre – a tragic human holocaust in the mankind – We Insist for National Memorial / Monument of that Memorial on the lines of Jallianwala Bagh in memory of Amritsar Massacre. In memory of those codava families (approximately 60 thousand unarmed Codavas) who were masssacred by ruthless Tippu sulthan of Mysore and his rapacious soldiers, after 3 continuous invasions tippu got defeated by Codava warriors disapointing in this insult he conspired to eliminate entire Codava martial tribal race, cunningly invited them for a grand feast in the pretext of entering a friendly treaty with Codavas at Devati Paramb in the year 1785 13 December. This heinous inhuman tragic genocide/holocaust in the mankind happened in this place. – But their great souls are still alive in Devati Paramb.

8. Under Indian Arms act 1959 section 3 & 4 for carry and posses fire arms by Codavas and Jamma holders should be continued and protected for ever without any hindrance.

9. Demand for the implementation of the recommendations made by Constitution review Commission of India on the insistence of Codava National Council for the creation of Coorg Development Board under article 371 of (Please note: Chapter 8 Union State relation 8.23.1 of CRC report) as has been done in relation to touching Hyderabad Karnataka Region - appropriate amendment to the Constitution is desirable at once.

Press release 18-10-2015

Dear Editor,

On the following day after the Cauvery Theerthodbhava we have religiously placed dishes called Dosa & Putt. This folklore practice has been in vogue from time immemorial.

CNC has offered ritualistic placing of Dosa & Putt (in top of Botthh darted earlier), around the Devati Paramb sites on the following day of theerthodhbava i.e on 18-10-2015 early in the morning. Nachappa Codava & CNC supporters offered ritualistic prayer for departed Codava souls at Devati Paramb site. On the following day after the Cauvery Theerthodbhava we have religiously placed dishes called Dosa & Putt. This folklore practice has been in vogue from time immemorial.

In order to assign spiritual and religious sanctity to the proposed Devati Paramb Tragic Massacre Memorial site CNC has observed this stick darting ritual earlier. It is the tradition of Codavas to dart Botthh in their wet lands, paddy drying yards (Boti Kala), Cow dung pit, Cattle shed, Drinking Water Well, gates and the front area of their residential Houses 4 or 5 days prior to the celebrations of Caveri Tholeyar Changrandhi every year. Every stick that has been darted will be fixed with herbal Botthh Balli.

Press Release

Dear Editor,

Human chain program held under the aegis of CNC at Kutta this day on 06-10-2015 – in order to herald the proposed Silver Jubilee “Codava National Day” celebrations at Gandhi Grounds Madikeri on 24-11-2015 demanding Codava land & a National Monument at Devati Paramb Massacre Tragic site on the lines of Jallian wallabagh & Constituting a Coorg Development Board under Article 371 of our Constitution and the special privileges to possess and carry fire Arms (Guns) without License extended to Codava Race under 1959 Indian Arms Act Section 3 & 4 should be continued without any hindrance as our customary personal law.

After having failed to bring the leader of this organization under their Control together with CNC the interested Real Estate Mafias, deal makers, builders, Fixers, Negotiators, Power Brokers, Land Mafias, Contractor Mafias and Commission Agents within amongst Codavas at the behest of State Govt under the name and style as federation/Samaja are trying to implement their Satanic designs through their agencies and groups caused for the purposes. Every born Codavas should be very careful about the existence and modalities of such patently ruinous Chameleon type groups- Nachappa said.

With a solitary idea of enlightening the people about our relentless struggle for Codava land Union Territory (UT) Status & Autonomy & A National Monument at Devati Paramb Massacre tragic site and such associated subjects detailed here below during the past 25 years and we are celebrating the completion of our eventful political struggle and entering the Silver Jubilee of our movement. A memorable “Codava National Day” public conference and mass rally will be held at Gandhi Grounds Madikeri on 24-11-2015. We insist the Govt to consider our long standing the below mentioned legitimate demands even before the holding of the programmed “Codava National Day” celebrations.

Charter of Demands:-

1. It is a fact that Modi Govt has entered a pact with NSCN (I-M) granting Naga people with a “shared sovereignty” with India on 3 Aug 2015 in order to strengthen our federal system. – we demand a permanent political package to grant Codava Land with UT status under Articles 2&3 of our constitution as done with Naga question.

2. The said fact includes granting Naga Patkai Autonomy to Naga inhabited areas in the bordering State of Arunachal Pradesh and our demands also include granting Autonomy to Codava land under the 6th Schedule of our Constitution.

3. We demand Tribal status to Codavas by race under articles 340 – 342 of our Constitution. We take pleasure to remind the Govt about the inclusion of Jain Community as religious minority even though they are known to be the wealthiest people in India besides being Hindus in real sense. Jaats are also granted OBC status despite the fact that they are economically, politically and socially most affluent class of people spread over in 9 states of our country. The Rajasthan state has granted Tribal status to violent Gujjars whose numbers exceeds 8crore in the country. Even though Codavas by Race historically are known to be a Martial Class in Nature and numbering a meager 1 ½ lakhs population and that no other class of people would be affected or Jeoparadize if we are granted with Tribal status. PS. Unlike Zoroastrians who are scattered everywhere in the Nation besides being the richest and prominent in the judiciary, Industrial arena and in general activities besides being most Cosmopolitan and urbane. They have a separate religion of their own called Zoroastrianism unlike Codavas who are rustic by nature confined to Kodagu /Coorg region. Hence Tribal status is fittest for them.

4. Codava Thakk / Codava Language is as ancient as human civilization is rich and living spoken language throughout the history fit enough to be included in the 8th schedule of our Constitution. We propose to cite MANORAMA YEAR BOOK 2015 which mentions about the 16 popular languages of our Country which includes Codava language to strengthen our claim – Manorama year book page 680 - Other Popular Languages 1. Angika 2. Awadhi 3. Bhojpuri 4. Bundeli 5. Chhatisgarhi 6. Hariyanavi 7. Hinduatani 8. Kanauji 9. Magadhi 10. Marwari 11. Bhili 12. Gondi 13. Kodava 14. Kutchi 15. Thulu 16. Mahi.

5. Protect our Land tenure under article 371 of our Constitution: (Inner Line Permit) The provisions of article 371 of our Constitution with inner line permit should be made applicable to Kodagu region at once as has been done in relation to Manipur and other North Eastern states. With a solitary intention of protecting our land from alienation and protecting our demography and such a thing called as “inner line permit”. Important factor is that large number of underworld dons, regular miscreants with harden criminality, and business Tycoons from across the Country with the active support and assistance from Hawala agencies and fake currency racketeers have been grabbing lands in the this District. With a major idea of protecting lands in the district and the interest of the natives the promulgation of such stringent law within Coorg is warranted.

6. On par with Anglo Indians under Article 331 - Exclusive Codava nominated representation in the Parliament and State Assembly should be given under article 331 of our Constitution on the lines of Anglo Indian community.

7. Devati Paramb massacre – a tragic human holocaust in the mankind – Insist for National Memorial / Monument of that Memorial on the lines of Jallianwala Bagh in memory of Amritsar Massacre. in memory of those Codava families (approximately 60 thousand unarmed Codavas) who were masssacred by ruthless tippu sulthan of srirangapatna and his rapacious soldiers, after 3 continuous invasions Tippu got defeated by Codava warriors disapointing in this insult he conspired to eliminate entire codava martial Tribal race, cunningly invited them for a grand feast in the pretext of entering a friendly treaty with Codavas at Devati Paramb in the year 1785 13 December. This heinous inhuman tragic genocide/holocaust in the mankind happened in that place. – but their great souls are still alive in Devati Paramb. (PS) All the proposals placed by CNC touching the request for treating Devati Parambu as National Monument are being hijacked and poached. The miscreants have not left, one single comma, semicolon, full stop, Subjects and Thok Namme etc., and the body language of all the communications, all the public lectures and statements of our leader verbatim. They have not even allowed untouched the dress code of CNC and contents of all the wordings of our official letter head in order to play mischief we expect fellows to distort the very nature of the movement we are leading. They try to confuse the Government, the Press and the general public always. Therefore we cushion the general public, the media and the Governmental setup to be very careful about the unhealthy and diabolic mischievous activities of these Jackals.

8. In order to pressurize our prime demands as are mentioned above and awareness human chain program would be continuously conducted thereafter in all villages and towns in the District – as the next human chain program will be held at Virajpet on 07-10-2015 and 12-Oct-2015 at Birunani , on 13-10-2015 at Cherambane and on 25-10-2015 at Gonikoppa.

Calendar of events:

1. Pattholadhi at Devati Paramb on 20-10-2015 / Shanthi Pooja at Thalakaveri

2. New Delhi Chalo Sathyagraha on 1-11-2015

3. Codava National Day celebrations on 24-11-2015

4. CNC Annual Puthari festival on 25-11-2015 (Birchyar 9)

6. CNC Annual Thok Namme on 18 Dec 2015

7. United Nations Holocaust remembrance day on 27-01-2016 (at Devati Paramb)

Hence we pressurize the Govt to consider our demands positively and as early as possible.

Thanking you,
