Bantwal, Aug 19: VHP and Bajrang Dal Amtoor units, Sri Krishna Bhajana Mandir Amtoor and Gram Vikasa Samiti Amtoor jointly organized 'Kesar Parba Kandad Onji Dina' programme in the Kambala fields of Baidaradka Prabhakar Shetty of Amtoor.

The programme was inaugurated by Mohanraj Chowta. Speaking on the occasion he said, "The paddy crop has reduced and all the paddy fields are converted into farm lands. Earlier, all the buffaloes of the village were called to the Kambala field for tilling. All the villagers used to do the planting of sapling. The youths of Bajrang Dal and Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) have organized this event with the intention of preserving our culture."

Astrologer Manoj Kattemar, who presided over the function, said, "We are not hearing the songs and voices that we used to hear long ago when the paddy field was being tilled or saplings were planted. Youths have to show love towards agriculture and turn the barren fields into lush green paddy fields."

Dinesh Amtoor, district president of BJP SCST Morcha said, "The youths have to think of utilizing the Kambala fields for growing crop, once the games of Kambala are over. When the field becomes green by agriculture, the land also gets fertile."

President of district BJP SCST Morcha, Dinesh Amtoor, welcomed the gathering. Kushalappa of Grama Vikasa Samiti rendered the vote of thanks. The programme was compered by Gopala Balyaya Kalladka. The games were started by pouring milk to the kambala field. Various games like running in sludge, Teppangayi, Arecanut sheet pulling, backward running, horse carriage race, Pyramid formation, Korant Kallu, tug of war, bringing water in the pitcher etc were held.

The morning breakfast was served by the food items like Pathrode and Kadubu that were prepared at home and brought to the competition field. All the people who gathered participated in the competitions and enjoyed to the fullest.
