Kemmannu Dec 01: The historic Thonse Padumane Kambala of Kemmannu was held on Sunday 01 December 2013 at the Padumane Family’s fields at Kandige. People cutting across religion, caste and creed attended the festivities and celebrated it as a rural festival. Unlike previous years, this year’s Kambla was held in day time, which started at around 2 pm and ended before sunset. In the morning, there was a sludge field race for children and youngsters sponsored by JCI,Santhekatte, Kallianpur.

 The winners received cash prizes from the sponsors, which were presented by Mr. Nityananda , President of Kemmannu Panchayat along with Mr. Dayananda Hegde and other dignitaries. Earlier in the day, Padumane family elder Krishnaiha Shetty proceeded to the Kandige Temple along with the family members and paid obeisance to the family deity. Later Kemmannu Panchayat president Mr. Nityananda declared the Kambla open by releasing the first pair of buffalos to the racing field.

 Tonse Padumane Kambala has a history of over a hundred years. It is said that 100 to 200 pairs of buffalos took part in the Kambala in the early 19thcentury. Due to the decline of agriculture in the area, the number has declined and about 30 pairs took part this year. Earlier on Saturday night, as a custom, ‘Bobbrya Kola’ was held at the ancestral Padumane house. Traditional drum beating by Koragas and them receiving the rice and coconut from the family is a tradition still followed by the family. Thousands of people from Kemmannu and surrounding areas thronged to the Kambala site, enjoyed the rural sport, and witnessed the rich spirit of tradition associated with the Padumane Kambala. This year’s Kambla Committee president Dinesh Shetty, Secretary Sadhashiva Kotian, Padumane Jayakrishna Shetty, Ganesha Brahamavara, Vasanthi Shetty, Damodhar Samani, Latha Shetty, Vinoda Shetty, Dayananda Hegde, Chandrashekar Shetty and Ashok Maada were present during the occasion.
