During this phase of the 𝐞𝐧𝐭𝐢𝐫𝐞 𝐰𝐨𝐫𝐥𝐝 being under a lockdown or quarantined, i choose to concentrate on the positive aspects. It hasn't been easy knowing what's happening around the globe with many people sick or dying and even more not knowing whats their next path is going to be, some being laid off at work and others waiting for their pending paychecks. But, thankfully, I am in 𝐂𝐨𝐨𝐫𝐠 my hometown, more like a safer place on earth with just one case of covid19 who has recovered .
✤ A fertile plantation paradise highlighted by natural forests, this land has a unique charm, which has not been destroyed by the hand of man. Fresh air, captivating sounds of nature, and the heavy fragrance of seasonal 𝐜𝐨𝐟𝐟𝐞𝐞 𝐛𝐥𝐨𝐬𝐬𝐨𝐦𝐬 refresh one’s senses .
✤ 𝐂𝐨𝐨𝐫𝐠/𝐊𝐨𝐝𝐚𝐠𝐮 is a land endowed with beautiful river 𝐂𝐚𝐮𝐯𝐞𝐫𝐲. Cauvery. is one of the most divine rivers in South India, is also known as the 'Ganges of the South.' This river is worshipped as a goddess by the local tribe called Kodavas .
✤ For 𝐊𝐨𝐝𝐚𝐯𝐚𝐬 river Cauvery is not just a river, but form their lifeline, a chief deity, mother goddess, and she generates heaps of emotions in the people of Kodagu. As i belong to this tribe, I have the utmost respect and feel humbled to have spent this time of rest and transition here in between this culture and tradition .
✤ Where the river flows, the land is fertile for plantation and vegetation. It also gives birth to some 𝐩𝐫𝐢𝐜𝐞𝐥𝐞𝐬𝐬 𝐡𝐞𝐫𝐛𝐬, which are medicinal and used in culinary scenes as well. While I am staying here, I am going to dedicate my time learning 𝐞𝐭𝐡𝐧𝐨𝐛𝐨𝐭𝐚𝐧𝐲 and diverse heritage of herbal plants and also showcase some rare and exceptional delicacy.
