Udupi: Tiger dance, the specialized folk dance of this region known as Hulivesha, is these days being customized to highlight social causes, and is no longer just a matter of dressing up like a tiger and moving to the drum beats.

The tiger dance attracts people of all ages, especially during Krishna Janmashtami at Udupi, and the dancers use this to their advantage.
The Malpe Youth Organisation ‘Samarpana 2016’ has raised funds for soldiers who have died or are injured in the border in the exchange of fire.

A team of 35 youth performed Huli Vesha during the Krishna Janmashtami and Vittal Pindi festivals on August 24 and 25 and collected money for the welfare of the soldiers.

The collected money was distributed at the Malpe bus-stand in a formal function on August 28. The programme began with Vande Mataram. Karunakar Bangera welcomed the gathering. Retired Solider M K Kumar Thottam inaugurated the programme by lighting the lamp.

  1. This really gives me hopes!! India is safe as long as these people are around. Congratulations to everyone involved in this program.

    • This really gives me hopes. India is safe… – YumreeKI thyampaNNA

      I REALLY wish we had such ‘pili-vesha’ contributions DURING the time you did padhrad to Yumreeka? AT least, you would have stayed back and created something like Apple or Google from your backyard in Jalligudde/Yedapadav. Sigh! India’s loss is Yumreeka’s gain. 🙁

      On the other hand, hey.. when I come to think of it, maybe some lads did INDEED ‘do’ pili-vesha when they saw you board your ‘manji’ at Bunder and start-off your long long voyage towards the ‘Yumreekas’. They must have thought – Yumreeka’s ‘loss’ is India’s GAIN. 🙂 🙂
