‘Kalipodh’ Festival, a harvest and weapon festival, is celebrated by the Kodagu warrior tribe in Karnataka

<p>In India, there are many different cultural traditions, and each one is distinctive in its own way. Our nation is filled with holidays that honor numerous cultures and tribes, from Baisakhi to Christmas. Kail Poldu, also known as Kalipodh, is one such cultural custom.</p>
<p>The Karnataka warrior clan celebrates the occasion as a harvest and weapon rite. The Kodagu district observes it every year from September 2 to September 4. In Kannada, the words for weapons and for puja are Paldu and Podh, respectively.<img decoding=”async” class=”alignnone wp-image-163218″ src=”https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/09/theindiaprint.com-government-of-sri-lanka-should-look-into-claims-of-intelligence-involvement-in-the-750×563.png” alt=”theindiaprint.com government of sri lanka should look into claims of intelligence involvement in the” width=”1477″ height=”1109″ srcset=”https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/09/theindiaprint.com-government-of-sri-lanka-should-look-into-claims-of-intelligence-involvement-in-the-750×563.png 750w, https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/09/theindiaprint.com-government-of-sri-lanka-should-look-into-claims-of-intelligence-involvement-in-the-1024×768.png 1024w, https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/09/theindiaprint.com-government-of-sri-lanka-should-look-into-claims-of-intelligence-involvement-in-the-768×576.png 768w, https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/09/theindiaprint.com-government-of-sri-lanka-should-look-into-claims-of-intelligence-involvement-in-the-150×113.png 150w, https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/09/theindiaprint.com-government-of-sri-lanka-should-look-into-claims-of-intelligence-involvement-in-the.png 1040w” sizes=”(max-width: 1477px) 100vw, 1477px” title=”'Kalipodh' Festival, a harvest and weapon festival, is celebrated by the Kodagu warrior tribe in Karnataka 6″></p>
<p>The Kodavas celebrate the event to mark the completion of their agricultural efforts and the harvest of their paddy or rice. One of the three days of the festival also serves as a reminder for the tribe’s males to assemble their hunting and agricultural tools in order to protect their crops from wild boars and other animals.</p>
<p>This year, Kamate Mahadeshwara Temple hosted festivities on Kali Muhurta on behalf of the Association of Working Journalists of Ponnampet Taluk.</p>
<p>As part of the event, Kodavas prayed and cleansed their weapons like firearms. During the months when the family was working the fields, all firearms were stored in the prayer room. The weapons were cleaned and embellished with flowers throughout the festivity.</p>
<p>Another intriguing custom calls for the presence of the family’s oldest member with a gun to mark the start of the celebrations. In order to preserve their crops from wild animals, the community then worships and prays to Kodava deities, notably Kaveramma, the primary preceptor and ultimate ancestor.</p>
<p>According to legend, the Kodava tribe used to go wild boar hunting while wearing loaded firearms around their necks. Today, however, they have shooting competitions to carry on the tradition, evaluating competitors’ abilities by having them fire at a coconut that is mounted on a tree as a target.</p>
<p>The family also prepares a sizable feast as part of the celebrations while cooking Kodava food.</p>
