Children of the Kaveri
The Kodavas of Karnataka are a distinct tribe. They are the proud custodians of an ancient culture, renowned for their martial prowess, agricultural vision, sporting accomplishments and a passionate sense of community.
The hallmark of a resilient culture lies not in its aptitude to resist the winds of change, but in its ability to adapt and evolve to new heights. Just like a tree’s growth and maturation is defined by the depth and strength of its living roots, so also is the advancement and progress of a culture, determined by the significance of its ideals and values.
Like Madaiah, Kodavas have seamlessly bridged the glories of the past to today’s world of speed, innovation and imagination, while preserving the unique characteristics that make up the Kodava mind and way of life.
