COORG,THE LAND I HAVE BEEN BORN,
NEVER LETS ONE FEEL FORLORN.

THE LAND OF RIVER KAVERI,
IS TOO FABULOUS TO BE TRUE.

BLESSED WITH SCENIC BEAUTY IN ABUNDANCE,
AND KNOWN FOR PEOPLE WITH AN AURA & CONFIDENCE.

FOR THE SMALL COMMUNITY THAT WE
ARE,
FAME & NAME WE HAVE ACHIEVED TOO FAR.

BE IT FOR OUR DISTINCT PRESENCE IN THE ARMED FORCES,
OR MAKING A NAME FOR OURSELVES AMIDST THE MASSES,

WE’VE ALWAYS STOOD OUT IN A CROWD,
AND MADE OUR HILLY DISTRICT PROUD.

COFFEE,ORANGES & HONEY WE ARE KNOWN
FOR,
OUR HOMESTAYS & HOSPITALITY – HOARDS OF THEM WE HAVE WON SO FAR.

WITH A DISTINCT CULTURE OF OUR OWN,
THAT MAKES US PROUD THAT WE ARE UNIQUE & COMPARABLE TO NONE.

OUR CULINARY DELIGHTS ARE MUCH TALKED ABOUT,
VISITORS SWEAR, THAT ITS SOMETHING THAT SHOULD’NT BE MISSED OUT.

FOR MANY OF US, WHO ARENT IN OUR HOMETOWN,
WE ARE TRULLY PROUD THAT A COORG, WE WERE BORN.

WE OWE OUR DETERMINATION, SELF BELIEF & SUCESS,
TO THE INBORN TRAIT, OF COURAGE & INNER STRENGTH THAT WE COORG’S POSESS.

WHEREVER WE COULD BE, WE TEND TO GET NOSTALGIC OF OUR OWN SCOTLAND,
TRULLY BLESSED ARE WE, TO BE BORN IN THIS PICTURESQUE & GREAT LAND .

Beautiful description of our Kodava Land and I wish Necterfresh to grow three-folds in the coming future.
