Kundapur: Koraga women start cowshed unit at Kumbashi under NRLM


Daijiworld Media Network - Kundapur (SP)

Kundapur, Jun 16: Women of Koraga community have come together to set up a cowshed unit under the National Rural Livelihoods Mission (NRLM). This new scheme is being implemented by the Integrated Tribal Development Programme (ITDP), horticulture, and animal husbandry department. The first ever unit under the scheme in undivided Dakshina Kannada district has come up at Kumbashi near here.

Under the 'Sanjeevini' scheme, a modern cattle shed has been built near the Koraga Makkala Mane Kumbashi at a cost of Rs 17 lac. Initially, two cows have been included in the unit. Shortly eight more cows and their calves will become the members of this cattle shed. Members of the society will get two cows for Rs 1.2 lac. This is meant to economically strengthen the Koraga women. If the unit succeeds, there is plan to even set up a poultry farm for the women.

The cattle shed has been given touch of modernity. NRLM provided grant while ITDP provides fund for sale of cows, grant for ensuring their safety etc. Under the scheme, 90 percent subsidy is available. The department of horticulture provided sprinkler facility for growing grass for the cows, agriculture, and for water supply. Veterinary doctors visit the cattle shed twice every week to check the health condition of the animals, quality of milk, and provide guidance to maintain good quality in milk and taking care of the animals. Mats for the floor, sprayer and power supply for washing mats, cement flooring etc and four fans have been provided. The local gram panchayat supports the plan to grow grass and water supply along with ITDP. Total investment for the unit is Rs 21 lac, and members of the society have to milk the cows and supply it to the local dairy.

Vishwanath Shetty, ITDP inspector Udupi said that the Koraga women have been trained by Brahmavar RUDSET and that depending on the experience, the project will be expanded further.

Dr Naveen Bhat, zilla panchayat chief executive officer, said that already the Koraga census, and report on health and educational progress are being readied. He said that their colonies will be visited, and an effort to understand their lives would be made.

    Modern looks doesn't mean it has all facilities. Where is the store room to keep dry grass, cattle feeds, milking machines, etc? Complete waste of funds🤓

    "oragas are the original inhabitants of Tulunadu ..All others are Migrants" That's true and just watch around how these people discriminated, kept away from social gathering hated to mix with upper communities and what not. Olden days they used to gather outside in any wedding houses to rush to collected waste food (port was their priority) in the mean time there were some generous people who seldom offer fresh food. Time has changed a bit but not upper class peoples mindset. If I am not mistaken they are Shudras (untouchables ) and cannot draw water from the wells of upper class community. In northern part of the country people still differentiate on class /creed basis.

    Flavian Mangalore ,kuwait,you are right ,They are shudras.most probably come from backward communities ,Originally Dravids.used to live in Forest,eating all rest .Since they were eating meat,mostly Beef ,,dead caracas of Cows etc,were as untouchables considered.were not supposed to draw water from upper class famililys.Not only Hindu Brahmins,but even catholics of our grandfather time.I remember in mangalore ,in one house ,this koraga woman was not supposed to bring water for cooking in house ,but could water garden.Once as in our house a koraga woman was bringing water to help mother ,some known woman came to drink water ,she refused to drink ,since other woman had brought .Thank God this has changed now a bit ,still belief is there in some places.In Goa too there are one working class people called Ghati,are short ,same black skin colour ,were also not allowed to mix with high class ,had seperate church , in big churches were not allowed to sit with on banks ,but down on floor.Now it has changed.

    Better government give bonous for milk produced by koraga community, do not simply spend on advance subsidy. There are soo many educated youths becoming jobless and poor than koraga community. Presently koraga colony got concreet roads, solar lights, open wel, line water, tanks, still their farm lands not cultivated, free education, free applications for government jobs, reservation for government jobs but still their educated childrens not going for work.
