Jain further said that the present generation should enjoy the tradition and culture of Tulunadu and we need to promote it. Earlier Pili Nalike was not recognized but our youth leader Mithun Rai has given a different touch to it by organizing the Pili Nalike competition. This is the third consecutive year, Mithun is organizing Pili Nalike in a disciplined manner. Let us all join hands to promote the culture of Tulunadu.

Mithun Rai before announcing the winners, said, “Winning and losing is part of the game, but this stage is not for winning and losing. We have organized Pili Nalike to encourage the tiger dancers. If we want to promote tiger dance we need a lot of support from the public. Today the 9 teams here have presented their skills on this stage. All the 9 teams are winners but we have selected one winner since we need to follow the rules of the contest. The people of Mangaluru have gathered in large numbers to support the tiger dancers, I want the same support from the public in the coming years.”
