    I read an article in THE STAR OF MYSORE dtd 30th Aug. INCREASED ELEPHANT MENACE IN KODAGU, we can put the entire blame on the so called FOREST DEPT, b”cause very recently while I was travelling from MYSORE to SRIMANGALA via NAGARAHOLE I noticed a family from HUNSUR(on enquiry) having liquior and non veg food on the road side and that too in the national game santuary, and on the same day while coming back I was stopped at the exit gate veeranahosahally and questioned for watching wild life along with a few friends who had come down from BANGALORE,we were stopped b’cause as per the drunk guards rules we had to exit the outer gate by 7pm,for your info there are about 30 road humps and a speed limit where you cannot travel more than 25kmph, we being KODAVAS face such harashment think of others who are not familiar with their objective(drunk guard wanted money to gulp some more pegs) to fleece tourists who come from outside. It is such a sad scene some times to see a huge teak tree vanishing overnight from the road side and this is happening in a very large scale and when everything is happening under whoever is concerned there is nothing we can do to stop them, when elephants are coming into MYSORE it is no big deal they are coming into coffee plantations,at the pace the deforestation is done they won”t have anything to eat and that day is not too far when we see them in the main roads of KUTTA, BALELE, KANOOR to name a few,we have lost our rights after the BRITISH left INDIA,in my view they should have continued ruling us. BRAVE KODAVAS SAVE KODAGU.
