Kallianpura, Santhekatte: The JCI week in Santhekatte presented quality entertainment for the audience. The every night programmes included dances singings plays and other cultural activities the organisers also had a day of competitions for swimming, fishing and canoe racing in Swrna river at the ferry Warf  Kadavina Bagilu (Kannada) Kolva Bagil (Konkani) and Kalleda Bakil (Tulu ) its overheard toddy drinking and cock fight has been decided to add for the next years  attractions.

People had a chance to show their skills of fishing some used their long rods and some just line the bait for the catch came from various sources earth worms, chicken intestine squid and shrimp. Hundred thronged at the bank of rivers swarna to watch.

The young guys had demonstrated the guts showing their ability swimming against the currents of river that too the never ending rains made the river flow above the dangerous levels.

The canoe race has been so fascinating and a rare opportunity for the people who could have been considered the lucky ones!

The coconut palm climbing so exciting to gaze because people below saw the star gazing kind of vision. There might not be any match for our coco climbers because the trees are 300 feet tall. The skilled climbers of Thonse region are best as the dare devils climb average 200 palm in a single day but the rainy season that made lot of algae to catch made them slippery on Sunday.

In the evenings the venue at the back of Maduvan is packed with people to see Musical show, Dance Orchestra Plays and other activities. It’s JCI they have put up lots of hard work to offer such an entertainment.

In the year 1950; I had heard and seen or drawn pictures of aeroplanes from text books. My imagination went wild when I saw a plane flying in the sky from Bombay to Bajpe in the year 1951 for the first time. In those days, I have had not seen lot more things like CRT (Cathode Ray Tube) or Skype etc. I had read then in a newspaper I guess, that grand parents in USA give cars as gifts if their grandchildren pass high school. Whereas, there was not a single car in Barkur. Have you written Cobol programs using punch cards? You might have heard, right? It takes more energy to be grumpy than to smile or laugh! Choice is yours! Be happy, chirpy, and crispy!

55 years ago, in Barkur, there was a swimming competition in my high school. Since there were no swimming pools as such, a temple large pool was used. The stagnant water was cold and cool. One of the popular athlete got cramps in the leg and was drowning. Fortunately the sports teacher had hired a local fisherman, who pulled this swimmer to safety. It was then I had heard the term Life Guard, Floating devices, safety, motor driven boats etc. There is an islet type of land between Kallyanpur Kalav and Brahmavar Kalav. In the rainy season water flows in this river in a mighty hurry causing unexpected swirl-pools or dangerous currents. In the year 1958 or so; one Fr. A. Sequeira,the then Parish Priest of Sasthan, who was crossing the river by boat, got capsized, and was drowned. Local fishermen searched for him, in vain, for five days. On sixth day his body was found in Manoor beach. Manoor is a place between Kota and Sasthan. The body had travelled about 10-15 miles. May his soul rest in peace. Mark my words, prevention is better than cure. There is a difference between constructive criticism and…. I had heard of sour grapes, but now I know there are bitter ones too. Laugh

Just for passification, it doesnot mean that we ( the present generation) should not own a car or motor bike, because our grand/great grand fathers didnot own it. Is it not right to think about the safety awareness??? whether in India or any corner of the world. The coconut tree may be of height 30 to 40 ft ( guessing by looking at the height of the person climbing and the tree), It may be typing error. But we should admire the organisers, for organising these types of rural games and competitions in our villages. Keep it up!!!

Why do Indians love to criticize their mother land sitting in a foreign country? I wonder if they have ever seen a life jacket, harness or motor boat before leaving India. Good to see our local guys swim against the currents and climb tall coconut trees without diapers.

@james, yes u are right, where is 300 feet cocunut tree in India?? and not seen any precaution measures during boat races or swimming competitions?? Why??
James Fernandes, Barkur/Chicago Fri, September-16-2011, 2:02
300 feet tall coconut trees? Very rare or never heard of... or 100 feet sir? I did not see pictures of any motor driven boat or any life guard in the event of emergencies. Just as forgiveness is better than permission; however, prevention is better than cure...Just an observation ..aste..
