In 326 BC, Macedonia Alexander's deserted soldiers Scythian, say 80% and Greek, say 20% founded Coorgs' Civilization; numerous assimilations has taken place with Ahma Kodavas including other local castes! There is a clear distinction between Coorgs and the Mestizo Kodavas.

COORGS' C IVILIZATION

327 BC BHARATA - CHANAKYA ERA

Origin of COORGS: in 334 BC, Alexander of Macedonia conquered greatest Achaemenid Empire, modern Persian Empire, and rest of the Central Asia Minor. Around 330 BC, Alexander III recruited the warriors of Balkans, Persians, Scythians to join his armed forces in addition to his elite Macedonian soldiers, and Greek cavalry: estimated over 41,000 armed forces. In May of 327 BC, Alexander III invades northwestern Bharata at Nysa, Indus River basin with his army. Alexander III invited all the chieftains of the Gandhara region for surrender and they did. First, Alexander III faced heavy resistance from the valleys of Rajas Hastin (Astes) chief of the Ilastinayana (Astakenoi/Astanenoi) tribal kingdom whose capital was Pushkalavati/Peukelaotis. The Ashvayana and Ashvakayana kingdom soldiers stopped Alexander's advance further into Bharata. The Assakenoi (Ashvayana) fought against the Alexander's armed forces from their Mountainair region strongholds of Massaga, Bazira and Ora regions. The bloody fighting at the Massaga was a prelude to what awaited Alexander III in Bharata. In addition, Alexander III also faced resistance from the regions of Kunar, Swat, Buner, Peshawar valleys, small kingdom soldiers. On the first day at the battlefield the Macedonians and Greeks troops forced to retreat with heavy losses and Alexander III himself was wounded in his ankle. Ashvakayana and Assakenoi (Ashvayanas) soldiers of Massaga fought the Alexander in a fierce battle. On the fourth day the Raja of Massaga was killed but the soldiers refused to surrender the capital. Queen Cleophis assumed the commander of the military an estimated of 30,000 cavalry, 38,000 infantry, 30 War elephants along with the thousands of women to fighters against Alexander's armed forces. Alexander III realized the strength of the Queen's army that he wasn’t going to win the battle and Alexander III called for a TRUCE; this was a trick and the Assakenoi (Ashvayanas) Queen agreed. During the mid night hours Alexander's troops stormed the city massacring sleeping soldiers and the citizens including the Queen Cleophis and a similar slaughter took place at the city of Ora another stronghold of the Assakenoi (Ashvayanas). This was a Barbarian act because in those days attacking during the night was unethical battle rules. Barbarian Alexander III massacred the elite Ashvayanas and Ashvakayanas and captured their estimated 40,000 soldiers, 230,000 Oxen. In fact, Alexander III committed a barbaric crime at the cities of Massaga and Ora. Only barbarians would attack during the nights. The Indus Title was "Alexander the Barbarian."

In 330 BC, Raja Ambhi of Taxila (Takshasila) reigned in the region between the Indus and Jhelum (Hydaspes) Rivers of northwestern Bharata. About 34,000 Macedonian infantry and 7,000 Greeko-Scythian cavalry stood across the City of Taxila, to face the Raja Ambhi, and he was a African origin Porous' rival. To protect the University of Takshasila and his capital city, Raja Ambhi presented about 200 talents of silver, 700 horsemen, 30-war elephants and other things to Alexander III and offered his assistance in a battle against his old foe Porous on one condition about his ambition for a Porous' Paurava kingdom. Alexander III returned Raja Ambhi's gifts and presented him with gold, silver ornaments, 30-horses, and 1000 talents of gold for Ambhi's armed forces to construct a bridge over the Indus River to reach Porous' kingdom. Raja Ambhi and his 5,000 men joined the Alexander's army in the battle of Hydaspes River bank battlefield against Raja Porous. Porous' Paurava kingdom spanned between the Hydaspes/Jhelum and Acesines/Chenab Rivers, the present day greater Punjab region. Raja Porous had an estimated 30,000 soldiers, 4,000 horses, 200 war elephants, and 300 chariots. Note-1: African origin Raja Porous about eight foot, the ruler of the Paurava kingdom. In June of 326 BC, Raja Porous awaits the attack from Alexander III. In Bharata, this was the first memorable great battle between Alexander III and Raja Porous at the Hydaspes River bank battlefield. In July of 326 BC Alexander III fought against the Raja Purushottama (Porous) on the Jhelum River bank battlefield. In the fierce battle Porous' son was killed and Raja Porous was hardly defeated but wounded with heavy casualties about 20,000 infantry and 3,000 cavalry were killed and 9,000 captured. However, undefeated Raja Porous refused to kneel to Alexander III for complete surrender. Being a valiant proud Porous, he demanded Alexander III to treat him like a Raja. This brave action in front of a large army was an insult to Alexander. For Raja Porous' bravely Alexander returned his captured kingdom with a title Satrap. After the battle Raja Ambhi and wounded Raja Porous reconciled mediated by Alexander III. Many historian doubts that Alexander won the battle against Raja Porous. This was the last major battle for Alexander III in Bharata. Mutiny: In July of 326 BC, the mutiny at the Hyphasis River bank, today's Beas River, not to cross it, fearing a very large Magadha Empire army (Nanda dynasty) was waiting for the Alexander's army for a fierce battle at the Ganges River bank. Maharaja of Magadha Empire decide to stage their large armed forces at the Ganges River bank after a scholar Chanakya' visit to their court requesting them help Raja Porous. Unfortunately, Maharaja of Nanda dynasty refused to help Porous, and their refusal irritated Brahmin Chanakya. Alexander abandoned his eastern campaign of Bharata because he was unsuccessful in persuading his armed forces and his general Coenus pleaded with him and Alexander III decided to turn back for campaigning against southern western Bharata and he was victorious in most of the battles where he dismantled all the African and Indus tiny kingdoms and majority of Africans have returned to their homeland Eastern Africa.

Note-2: Alexander of Macedonian second long battle was against the Mallians (Mahlavas) on the east of Acesines (Chenab) River and Ksudrakas across the Hydraotes (Ravi) River bank. Mahlavas and Ksudrakas' territories were administrated by elite Brahmins, not by Rajas and before the battle they fail to come for an agreement that who would lead against Alexander III. The joint Mallians and Ksudrakas armed forces had gathered with an estimated 90,000 infantry, 10,000 horses and 900 chariots at the waterless Sandar Desert to the east of Alexander's camp. In this long cat and mouse battles Mallians and Ksudrakas were partially defeated and the city of Multan was captured by the Alexander' army. In this battle Alexander III was wounded with a poison arrow that pierced on his right side of the stomach during the melee in the Multan citadel. For the first time in any battle wounded Alexander III fell to the ground. After Alexander's recuperation, he sailed through the Indus River to the Arabian Sea to reach Babylon where he dies two years later. From May of 327 BC through February of 325 BC Alexander III within twenty-two months conquered a vast regions of northwestern Bharata. In March of 325 BC, before Alexander's departure from Bharata, he orders his Scythian and Persian soldiers to return to Central Asia Minor. Only the Macedonian-Greek army and generals ruled their conquered western Bharata (today's Pakistan) from the capital of Taxila for 20-years from March of 325 BC through 316 BC and by a Greek general Sophytes from 305 BC through 294 BC. After Alexander's death in 323 BC, Porous was assassinated by one of the former Alexander's general, Eudemus because Alexander III did not win the battle against Porous and he refused to kneel to Mlexander the Macedonia.

Note-3: Result of Mutiny at the Beas River bank in July of 326 BC: some Greek say 20%, and Scythian say 80%, soldiers (desertion) fled to southern Western Ghats of Bharata where they may have assimilated with the Ahma Kodavas around 310 BC establishing a separate CLAN system, decreasing Ahma Kodavas dramatically, perhaps even forming their own kingdom, most probably under the protection of Pandyan dynasty. Greeko-Scythian dialect among the new settlers may have warned in hundreds of years. Once eighteen Greeko-Scythian words were commonly spoken among the ancient Scythian Coorgs. The Scythian and Greek settlers eventually accepted Ahma Kodava's dialect and their personal names marrying their women. Presently, Coorgs' traditional wedding attire is a Scythian origin including alcohol, meat and fish consumptions, which are Greeko-Scythian origin. Coorgs' harvest festival is perhaps Vedic era Scythian origin Or Ahma Kodava's tradition. Coorgs also have a tendency to join the armed forces as their ancestors have done. As the centuries progressed Scythian men's turban is modified by the Coorgs. Once Scythians were great soldiers similar to Coorgs, Rajputs and Punjabis. The Rajputs were direct descendants of one branch of Scythians where they have ruled Western Bharata from 110 BC through 395 AD for 505 years. See the Indo-Scythian map. After 395 AD, the some Scythians remained in the Western Bharata, and the Rajasthan regions. See the descendants of Scythian 1870's British photographs. Some scholars speculate Coorgs' civilization most probably evolved from a synthesis of Indo-Greek-Scythian Empires or Indo-Aryan civilization from Indus valley. No historical written documents were maintained by the Scythians, Rajputs, Punjabis and Coorgs.

VIMANAS: In 327 BC, Alexander III decided to invade northwestern of Bharata and the Greeks first recorded incident when Vimanas flew over the Alexander' armed forces while marching into Bharata, a few "Circular Silver Shields" (Vimanas) swooped down and made several passes over the Greek army - "Vimanas" had some effects startling his cavalry horses stampede. Those "Circular Silver Shields" (Vimana) also had similar affects on the Porous' horses and elephants during the battle at the Hyphasis River bank, and it was difficult to ascertain whose side those Vimanas were attacking. Greek historians were certain that Alexander III won the fierce battle against the brave African origin tall Raja Porous, the ruler of the Paurava kingdom. Famous scholar Chanakya was a teacher at the world's First Taxial University established in 550 BC. In order to protect Bharata from barbaric non-Vedic foreign invaders Brahmin Chanakya went to the Magadha Empire court to request the Maharaja of Nanda dynasty to help the Raja Porous because they had fleets of Vimanas and those ones could be used in the battle against Alexander III. However, Maharaja of Nanda dynasty refused scholar Chanakya's request. Disappointed Chanakya return to Bihar region and he selects a local warrior Chandragupta to be the Prince to establish a new kingdom, later that small kingdom became a Mayura Empire once stretching across Bharata. Prince Chandragupta's leadership with his thousands of warriors Chanakya went to war against the ignorant Magadha Empire where Chandragupta's warriors dismantled the Nanda dynasty. This was a avenge battle for Chanakya because Magadha Empire refused to help African origin Raja Porous against Alexander III, the barbarian. According to the Bhavishya Purana, clever Brahmin Chanakya knew more foreigners would invade Bharata in many years to come. Alexander's formal general ruled Taxila kingdom for 20-years assassinating Raja Ambhi. In 317 BC, Chandragupta Maurya conquered the Taxila from the Greeks. In 315 BC, Mayura Empire's Prime Minister Chanakya shuts the Bharata's science and technology developments including manufacturing mercury fueled Vimana that stopped the route to three distinct locations of the world, perhaps one huge mistake by Chanakya but battery powered machine technologies were secretly continued under some Maharajas to build Indus temples with solid stones. In the Kali Yuga, a few hundred years after the World War MahaBharata of 3115 BC numerous small Indus kingdoms were founded across Bharata and Central Asia. Around 2,100 BC mass migration of Africans into Bharata and eventually Africans also established tiny kingdoms across Bharata. Indus and African Raja's jealously hated their neighboring kingdoms for many generations. Those rulers refused to jointly fight against any foreign invaders and that cunning characters continued during the Islamic invasions also and such jealous paralyzed Bharata. The elite Indus and African origin rulers were responsible for dividing and dismantling Bharata. Scholar Chanakya's prediction has come true and the result is what we see today in Bharata. It is wise to read Bhavishya Purana to know the future tales.

From the Greco-Bactrian Kingdom (Persia), Demetrius I invades Northwestern Bharata and he founded Indo-Greek Empire in 180 BC and they ruled through 10 AD for 190 years. The Scythian migrants from Central Asia Minor founded their Indo-Scythian Empire in 110 BC at the Western Bharata when the Indo-Greek Empire was flouring. The Indo-Scythian Empire decimated the Indo-Greek Empire in 10 AD, and some Greeks perhaps assimilated within the Scythian Empire or returned to Greece. The Indo-Scythian Empire lasted through 395 AD for 505 years. Bharatianized Rajputs were direct descendants of Scythian Empire. Indo-Kushan Empire lasted until 375 AD for 375 years and the Punjabis were direct descendants of Kushan. The Scythians and Kushan were brotherly societies. In 395 AD, Indo-Scythian Empire was dismantled by Gupta Empire, Chandragupta II and majority of the Scythians fled to Persia and beyond but some Scythians remained in the Western Bharata. Around 700 AD, Indo-Scythian descendants, the Rajputs established their great kingdom. After the fall of Rajputs, the Kushan descendants, Punjabis became elite rulers of Northern Bharata establishing their kingdoms. The Rajputs wore Scythian rulers attires, however, the modern Rajputs modified their attires. The Punjabis rulers changed their attire completely including their turban from 1700 with a western touch and they have a smaller version dagger than Scythians. Eventually, the Rajputs and Punjabi rulers were conquered by the Islamic and British rulers. The Coorgs were unconquered by the either rulers in the Bharatian histories.

Note-4: Greek general Seleucus I Nicator, founder of the Seleucid dynasty and he was one of the Alexander's former generals. In 305 BC, Seleucus I Nicator invades northern Bharata at today's Punjab, Kashmire and Pakistan region. Details of Seleucus's conflict with Chandragupta Maurya are vivid; however, prince Chandragupta had the best opportunity for an alliance with the Greek general Seleucus. General Seleucus presented his daughter to prince Chandragupta in marriage, ceded the territories of Arachosia, and in return Seleucus received 500 war elephants from his son-in-law Chandragupta. Seleucus used the 500 war elephants decisively at the battle of Ipsus, Persia. The Greek general Seleucus also sent an ambassador Megasthenes to Chandragupta's court, and he often visited Chandragupta's capital of Pataliputra (modern day Patna, Bihar). Ambassador Megasthenes wrote detailed descriptions of Bharata and Chandragupta's reign. The good diplomatic relations between Seleucus and the Mauryan Emperor were documented throughout the Maurya Empire.

Coorg is a small state situated at the Western Ghats of southern Bharata. It has an area of 1,595 square miles and the present day population is little over half-a-million. COORG STATE is four times larger than Hong Kong and six times larger than Singapore. In this Modern World: Coorgs are an Orthodox Indus Aryan community and as a Martial Race of Bharata they belong under the umbrella of ruling-class Kshatriya community. In the 1900's during the British era and their influences, the Coorgs became westernized. Coorgs are conservative people, and the only Bharatian community who do not follow foolish dowry custom . Their marriage ceremonies are performed by their elders and not by Brahmin priests as the rest of the Indus Bharatians. In the future, Coorgs should consider to have a few Vedic priests during their wedding ceremonies to recite Vedic mantra, along with Agni sacrifice. Coorgs celebrate male births with a 'gun salute' and their death ceremonies, with a 'double gun salute.' Sir Erskine Perry, author and anthropologist, wrote that the Coorgs "have no resemblance to any other races of southern Bharata" and that they are "by far the finest race" he has seen in Bharata, in point of independent bearing, good looks, and all the outward signs of well-being." Herbert Risley was a British ethnographer and colonial administrator who did extensive work on the classification of the various caste systems in Bharata during the "landmark" census of 1901, described the Coorgs as the "finest race without any exception in southern Bharata" and considered them to the status of Kashmiri Pundits in respect to skin, color, and stature. Once Kashmiri were also assimilated with Greek-Scythian-Parthian people. The Coorgs do not celebrate major Indus festivals of Bharata instead they celebrate Ahma Kodavas': 1. Puthri, "similar to Thanksgiving Day", and 2. Keil Poldu, the "Festival of Fire Arms", perhaps Scythian origin. In the recent years, Coorgs have adopted a few Bharatian festivals such as Vedic Yugadi – New Year's Day of Bharata: First day of Chaitra. The tradition of the "Coorgs' Tiger wedding" no longer exists. In addition, sadly, the fifty-year year-old highly decorated "Coorg Regiment" of the Bharatian army was re-designated as the "Karnataka Regiment" in 1996 by a radical Prime Minister of Bharata (India), who was jealously attempting to eliminate the Coorgs' proud ancestral identity. The Coorgs are a patriotic people of Bharata. Because of their traditional-cultural customs, the Bharatian constitution permits the Coorgs to have a gun without a license within Coorg. There is a clear distinction between Scythian origin Coorgs and the local Kodavas even though they speak the same dialect and celebrate same festivals. A vast majority of Kodavas were Ahma Kodavas. Book: "Caste and Class in Bharata".

Brahmins are considered as inferior to Coorgs of Coorg because Coorgs do not care for Brahmin caste or any such complex superiority among Indus communities. In the region of Coorg, River Cauvery and its nearby mountains were naturally created millions of years ago by volcanic activities. Unfortunately, the local Brahman priests fill the people of ancient Coorg with mythical tales about the origins of the River Cauvery Geyser. They profited from the organized yearly 'Cauvery Sankaramana' festival where many local people superstitiously attend. The River Cauvery Sankaramana is one huge myth, and it is foolish to celebrate such a festival. Coorgs/Ahma Kodavas, who live in North America, if they prefer, they could celebrate their Cauvery Sankaramana at Yellow Stone National Park, at any one of the many wonderful Geyser. I wish future generation of Coorgs masters the ancient language Samskritam, and some important Indus scriptures, which has many hidden ancient science, mathematics, astronomy, astrology, and ancient world histories. Coorgs speaks Ama Kodava's dialect known as 'Ahma Kodava Takk', which is invaluable in this modern world. It is wise to learn Samskritam to earn the true meanings of Vedas (recited by the BrahmRishis tens of thousands years ago), Upanishads, 108 of them are important because of Surya, Bhagavad Gita and some other important ancient Indus scriptures including 93,000 verses World War MahaBharata of 3115 BC, and 24,000 verses of Ramayanam, which also detailed the World Map of that time, that is 1.7 million years go. Note: strictly speaking Hindi, Punjabi, Bengali, Kannada, Malayalam, Urdu, English, French, Spanish, German …. many others aren't languages. Only the Samskritam of 2,500 BC, Magadhi Prakrit, Gupta, Tamale, Telugu, Gujarati, Chinese, modified from Brāhmī Scripts the Latin, Greek, Hebrew, Russian were ancient languages. Ancient Samskritam Brāhmī Scripts were the mothers of the modern languages; Indo-European language families were born. Note: about seventy percent of the Bharatian subcontinental people are African origin who inherited dark to black gum line color including cloth wrapping sari styles without a blouse. About two million years ago, over the chains of island to islands, upright walking gigantic Africans walked into Sri Lenke. See Google Earth for those plummeted islands on the Indus Maha Sagara. In ancient Bharata and Sri Lenke, the genetic mutations between ancient Bharatians and Africans have taken place for over million years. Africans played an important rule in Bharata adopting Indus Vedic natural belief systems.

About seventy percent of the Bharatian subcontinental people are African origin including some famous fake deities Hanuman, Venkatewera, Aiyappa and Kali, the superstitious Kerala deity Theyyam/Theyyattam, it is like worshiping a devil. It is unwise to worship these infamous fake African deities. Around 2,100 BC, new waves of African Pagans migrations to Bharata have taken place, one thousand years after the World War MahaBharata of 3115 BC. That Great War almost wiped out the human population from Bharata creating a vacuum for a new waves of Vedic era pagan African migrations. The African traditions and culture are permanently rooted in the Bharatian subcontinent including cloth warping sari styles without a blouse became part of the Indus culture including African jewelries. DNA: African origin people in the Bharatian subcontinent have dark to black gum color and dark to black skin color; assimilations and genetic mutations has taken place. Once elite Vedic Brahmins classified all those new pagan African origin people as lower Caste untouchable people. The direct descendants Africans are living in many regions in the Bharatian subcontinent.

The Hindus of subcontinental Bharata follow the tradition of Vedic Shanatana Dharma's New Year's Day as the 'First Day of Chaitra', namely Cheti Chand, Gudi Padwa, Thapna, and Yugadi festivals. The rest celebrate various New Year's Days across 'BharataVarsha' in the different months, not a unique Indus Vedic system. The Himalayan Uttarakanda Rishis/Seers celebrate the First of Chaitra as their New Year's Day, which is embodied in the Kalki Purana . The 'First day of Chaitra' also aligns with heavenly Aries, an ancient Hindu's Vedic astronomy. The world famous International New Year's Day of January First has no astronomical significance! Tamale/Tamil New Year's Day of April 13 or 14 is astronomically inaccurate. Kalki Purana: only for Bharata, every year Sun will be on the equator on March Twenty First, the Sun's rest day and the Indus New Year month Chaitra begins on March Twenty Second, 'First Day of Chaitra' the New Year's Day of Bharata and this Indus New Year's Day also celebrated in some Central Asian Minor countries including Iran and Turkey. Coorgs/ Ahma Kodavas also celebrate New Year's Day Yugadi festival on March Twenty Second, 'First Day of Chaitra'. * Note: Indus Deepawalli is a 'Festival of Agnis,' not the New Year's Day of Bharata!

Ishwaram: Brahma-Vishnu-Shiva

Based on the Shanatana Dharma Hindus should follow the four Vedas recited by BrahmRishis tens of thousands of years ago. Rigveda 10.48.5: 'Ishwaram' enlightens the entire Cosmos. He is the light of the Universe. Rigveda 10.49.1: 'Ishwaram' alone provides true knowledge to truth seekers. Yajurveda 13.4: there is 'One and Only One' supreme Creator and Maintainer of the entire Cosmos. 'Ishwaram' is Bliss Himself! Atharvaveda 13.4.16-21: 'Ishwaram' is neither two, nor three, nor four, nor five: 'One and Only One' Supreme. Yajurveda 32.11: 'Ishwaram' resides at each point of the Universe. 'Ishwaram' is Maheshvaram, Mahatmana, Paramesvaram or Paramatma, only to worship 'One' Supreme God, NOT any other fake deities or devils where foolish Hindus do worship celebrating such festivals.

"VANISHING COORGS" - AHMA KODAVAS WILL RETAIN THEIR "HOME LAND" A Divine Wish!

Conclusion: Coorgs are direct descendants of Scythians - since 310 BC. Compare all the fifteen photographs and make your own logical judgments about the origin of Coorgs. Remember about 9,000 years ago, the Indo-Harappan civilization populated Middle Eastern peninsula. Since 1500 BC, the Southern Bharatians during their trade they continued to settle in the port city of Aden, El Yamuna (Yemen) and they also settled in some other regions of ancient Middle East. During the Queen Sheba of El Yamuna, Arab tribal Nabataeans traded with Southern Bharatians for spices and cotton fabrics and might have settled there also. During the seventh century AD, Arab traders also settled in the Southern Bharata. Note: Rajputs are direct descendants of Scythians - since 110 BC. Punjabis are direct descendants of Kushans - See the Indo-Scythian and Indo-Kushan Empire maps.

 

HISTORY

The Coorgs have never been conquered . In the Bharatian history, the Islamic and British rulers have conquered almost all the regions of ancient Bharata militarily; however, they were unable to conquer the Coorg kingdom. Their mountain region has always been remote and is still largely inaccessible during the monsoon seasons. However, from the early Medieval period, the little kingdom of Coorg began to prosper from the silver, gold and salt trades that came through its mountains from the Kerala coast to the great cities of the Deccan Plateau. Coorgs' relative wealth attracted several would-be invaders including the Vijayanagars and the late Medieval Deccan sultanates, but the Coorgs' fierce armed men repulsed all the invaders. The Coorgs have always been great lovers of freedom and an orthodox Hinduism, Shanatana Dharma, they may have taken over from the indigenous animist culture in the sixteenth century, but the so-called Hindu caste system hardly penetrated amongst Coorgs and Ahma Kodavas. Even the Kannadiga Rajas, though they were also Hindus, deferred to a council of ministers and were much more accountable than usual for Rajas.

From Persia, a New Greek invasion into Bharata, forming an Indo-Greek Empire, and the Greek kings in their reign from 180 BC through 10 AD for 190 years. Greek rulers have done enormous contribution for the Hindu societies and Buddhism. Indus philosophies and beliefs were adopted in their homeland Greece. Some Hindu temples have a few stone statues that were dedicated to Greek statesmen. One Greek ruler built a Buddhist Stupa in Sri Lanka/Lenke. Indo-Scythian Empire lasted for 505 years, where Scythians rulers also did enormous contribution for the Hindu societies and Buddhism during their reign from 110 BC through 395 AD. Indo-Kushan Empire has begun their journey from Central Asia Minor and they established their kingdom in the Western Bharata. The Kushan first king was Heraios and his reign was around First AD through 30 AD and the Kushans ruled Western Bharata until 375 AD for 375 years and they also have done some contribution for the Hindu societies and Buddhism. Indo-Parthian (Persian) Empire rooted from 12 BC through 130 AD at some regions of Western Bharata. From 636 AD Central Asia Minor countries became under the influence of Islam. Around eleven century AD, the Central Asia Minor Islamic invaders numerous times invaded northern Bharata dismantling many famous Indus Universities, especially Nalanda in 1197 AD and numerous Hindu temples across Bharata. In 900 years the various Islamic invaders and rulers have changed the demographic and histories of ancient Bharata, decimating Hindu culture forever. The British intervenes in 1600's Indus politics stopped the further expansion of Islamic Empire in Bharata that was one of the greatest contribution. This could be a divine's plan! Finally, British reshaped Bharata developing housing including Schools, Roads, Bridges, Survey, eliminating some superstitious beliefs, introducing Railways, Telegraphy-Telephones, Automobiles, Vimana (Airplane) and they have translated most of the Indus Scriptures into English for the world to appreciate and especially permitted education for all the societies. These were some of the enormous contributions to Bharata forever where in 315 BC Mayura Empire's Prime Minister Chanakya shut the door for science and technologies and manufacturing Vimanas. However, many Rajas secretly continued battery powered machine technology to design their solid stone Indus temples across Bharata.

Tens of thousands of years prior to World War MahaBharata of 3115 BC, the ancient Bharatians have migrated to Central Asia, Middle Eastern and Eastern European peninsula spreading Vedic era paganism.

Ancient human migration from Bharata to the Central Asia, Middle Eastern and European peninsula can be traced by their dialects and DNA. Humans have migrated throughout the world for millions of years and the modern human migration is one such good example

Coorgs' wedding guests with their modernized Traditional attires with a special dagger, and Scythian origin Long Black Coat known as Kupia amongst the Coorgs.

Coorgs Wedding Ceremony: Just married couple with a best man & woman – Ladies of Coorgs with their Sari Style. This sari style is Ahma Kodava origin. However, all the sari styles in the divine land of Bharata were African origin.

Bride: (1). her circular pendant is African origin. (2). long beautiful crescent pendant is most probably Ahma Kodavas' origin. (3). hand jewelry once worn by the Royal families across Bharata and this hand jewelry also worn by the Maya and Aztecs Royal families in the Patala Loka. (4). this necklace is worn by commoners in Bharata and also the Maya women.

Coorgs' Style: Dawn of a Two Day Wedding Ceremony: most of the marriage traditions were Ahma Kodava origin, except the traditional attire, long Black Coat, which is Scythian origin.

In their desire to keep their freedom, the Coorgs even beat off invasion from Hyder Ali and his son, Tipu Sultan, the Islamic warlords who conquered almost all of southern Bharata in the eighteen century. The warrior of sultans found it impossible to campaign among Coorgs' tactically valuable mountain routes to the coast. The Kannadiga rajas of Coorg and the local Coorgs headmen deliberately kept the hill country devoid of roads, allowing only the narrowest of jungle trails between settlements, thus making the uplands impregnable against anyone unfamiliar with the territory. However, this security eventually resulted in the late eighteen and early nineteenth century Rajas becoming corrupt, petty despots, who finally alienated their freedom-loving people. Finally, Tipu Sultan captured Kannadiga Rajas along with their 20,000 soldiers. This was a clear victory for Coorgs, and the Coorg soldiers over thrown the Tipu Sultan's rule out of Coorg, and restored the local Rajas to the power. During the reign of Chikaveera Rajendra in the early 1830's, Coorg suddenly relinquished its long-coveted Independence-giving it up voluntarily to the British for the English education when the rest of the southern Bharata fell to the British Empire. The unconquered Coorgs; the conditions that brought this were complex but resulted in one of the most unusual episodes of southern Bharatian nineteenth century history.

Coorgs harvest (Puttari) dance Vs Yemeni harvest dance - best evidence ever

1: Coorgs' Puthri Dance Vs 2: Yemeni Harvest Dance once originated from Southwestern Bharata, not from Middle East to Bharata

Note: Indo-Harappan civilization populated Middle Eastern Peninsula about 9,000 years ago including El Yamuna (Yemen) and the traders of ancient southern Bharatians populated El Yamuna peninsula. Since 1,000 BC, southern Bharatian traders settled in the port city of Aden, Yemen, perhaps some Kodavas also among them. Some believe the ancient Bharatian tribal traditional cultural exchanges were common amongst various tribes between Bharata and Middle Eastern peninsula. The Yemeni tribes who live along the border of Yemen and Saudi Arabia probably adopted the ancient Kodava cultural civilization from the region of Coorg during the Queen of Sheba's spice trade era along with the Arab tribal Nabataeans because they also celebrate male childbirth with a 'gun salute' and their traditional attire is similar to that of the Kodavas with a modified Peechekati (dagger). The Yemenis call it Jambia. In the Seventh century AD Arab traders also settled in Kerala. El Yamuna (Yemen) people maintained Indus Mathematics, caste system, Kerala Lungi, some form of Kodavas' traditional attires and some marriage customs. In spite of Islam spread in 630 AD, Yemenis still have some Indus names like Harish, Khayappa and Muthanna. In the 1990's first Prime Minister of El Yamuna was origin of southern Bharata.

Marriage: The Yemeni tribal bridegroom walks with his friends to the bride's house in order to bring her to the groom's home. This is the exact tradition of Ahma Kodavas later years that tradition was adopted by the new settlers Coorgs. The vast majority of Yemeni tribes do not use any priest to perform their wedding ceremony. Instead their elders perform their marriage ceremony, and this is the exact marriage custom of the Ahma Kodavas and Coorgs on the other side of the continent. This shows the Yemenis also adopted marriage tradition of Coorgs and they continue to practice such traditions even after they adopted the Islam in 630 AD. See the ancient link for Yemeni traditional attire photos.

Divine' Plan: around 310 BC, the new settlers, Scythians and Greeks assimilated with the Ahma Kodava women. Eventually, the Scythian and Greek Clan population has increased, decreasing Ahma Kodavas as our great grand mothers has informed their generations. Today, Kodavas/Coorgs are promoting speaking the Ahma Kodavas' dialect and keeping their cultural traditions alive celebrating their festivals. Does any Coorgs speak Scythian or Greek?

COORGS' CIVILIZATION

The British declared Coorg to be a protected state of the empire and asked the Coorgs to choose a governor from among their own people. The council of ministers elected Coorgs Boppana, the minister who had openly defied both Basava and the Kannadiga Rajas and, when this was cried around the kingdom, none of the Coorgs headmen and nobles raised any objection. From 1834 onwards, Coorgs Boppana and, after him, his descendants administered Coorg. In return for their co-operation, the British allowed the state to retain a nominal independence and English education.

The rule of the Kannadiga Rajas was thus never directly applied to the Coorgs and even today the place has a separate state movement. Coorgs cultural flavor is distinct from the rest of the Bharata; even the British were unable to conquer the Coorgs militarily. In Indian history, the Coorg kingdom, and its people Coorgs becomes the unconquered people of Bharata.

Coorg is one of the most unspoiled regions of Southern Western Bharata. Hiking trails run from lowland jungle up through Coffee and Tea plantations shaded by indigenous jungle trees and finally through wild forest onto high ridges of natural grassland. The Nagarahole wildlife sanctuary in the southern tip Coorg is one of the best places for seeing wild Elephants, Tigers and Leopards. For trekking, many of the wildlife sanctuaries have huts and will supply guides. Visitors will have the breath taking view of the Coorg's landscape and surrounding hills, from the top of the Brahmagiri Mountain, which is about 5100 feet high.

Field Marshal Cariappa K.M

The First Commander-in-Chief of Independence of India

This web page is dedicated to Commander-In-Chief: Field Marshal Cariappa K.M

And the first Indian United Nation Army General in Cyprus - 1970's: Thimmaiah K.S of Coorg

Field Marshal Cariappa K.M

General K. M. Cariappa, Commander-in-Chief of the Indian Army, had dignity, poise and determination. The first Indian to hold the Commander-in-Chief position in free India, his immense contribution to Indian defense has made him immortal in our defense history. Born on January 28, 1900 in Coorg, Kodandera Madappa Cariappa joined the Central High School at Mercara and distinguished himself with his inborn leadership qualities.

Mr. K.M Cariappa later joined the Presidency College in Madras for his higher studies, grew up equally attached to books and plays under the guidance of renowned academicians. He was an active sportsman and played with vigor and brilliance, games like hockey and tennis. General Cariappa served in Iraq, Syria and Iran from 1941-1942 and then in Burma in 1943-1944 AD.

While in Iraq, he served under Major General Slim, who later became General William Slim and commanded the famous Fourteenth Army and was a Field Marshal as Chief of the Imperial General Staff in the UK. General Cariappa later became full General and assumed the appointment of Chief of Army Staff and Commander-in-Chief, Indian Army.

General K.M Cariappa's association with the Indian Army is spread over an unbroken period of more than 29 years, during which he had wide experience of staff work and command. He took active part in the reorganization of armed forces in many foreign countries. General Cariappa was a much-traveled man. He visited parts of China, Japan, the United States, Great Britain and Canada and most of the European countries.

General K.M Cariappa had great concern for the nation. He saw himself as an Indian first and only then as an officer of high rank, which is one of the reasons why Cariappa is still held in high esteem by his fellow Coorgs and the rest of the country. If there is one man whom Coorgs identify with them with reverence is Field Marshal General K.M Cariappa.

Apart from being a military man, Field Marshal Cariappa had insight about the status of the country. He is quoted as saying "In modern warfare, a large army is not sufficient, it needs industrial potential behind it. If the army is the first line of defense, the industry is the second". General Cariappa said that the soldiers know the facility of wars to solve the internal problems. We ought to be ashamed that today they had more peace in war than peace in peace". A "soldier is above the politics and should not believe in caste or creed" was another firm belief of a great soldier. His career in the Army during which he had the rare distinction of being "first" in many spheres is a continuous tale of upward progress. He was the first Indian cadet to be commissioned from British Daly College, Indore, and the first Indian Officer to enter the British Staff College of Quetta.

He lived and remained, as he said, "an Indian and to the last breath would remain an Indian. The legendary Hero of this great country who professed duty, discipline and loyalty to the nation is now history.

Note: Among Coorgs, once eighteen Greek words were commonly used, especially the greeting "Enne Ray", which bears a striking resemblance to the Greek's greeting, "Ella Ray." This is a common form of greeting used by Coorgs and the Greeks when addressing friends who are peers. However, these terms are never to be used when greeting their elders. If some one does, then the effect and impact are the same amongst Coorgs and Greeks; it is an affront. This is true even though Coorg and Greece are thousands of miles apart. This is a key indication that some Greek-Scythian armed forces probably settled in the region of Coorg. Alexander of Macedonia armed forces had Scythian and Persian soldiers and in 326 BC some soldiers deserted fleeing to southern Western Ghats of Bharata where they may have assimilated with the Ahma Kodavas around 310 BC establishing a separate CLAN system, decreasing Ahma Kodavas dramatically, perhaps even forming their own small kingdom, most probably under the protection of Pandya Empire or ancient Kodava kingdom rulers may have welcomed them. Since 310 BC, the influence of their civilization has waned. The DNA reveals, the ancient Bharatians populated the greater Yemen peninsula with Indus culture and traditions during Harappan civilization migration to the Middle East and Egypt. The tribal people of Yemen peninsula worshiped various Indus idols. At the Shiva temple of Mecca the local tribal societies worshiped 360 Indus idols. Emperor Vikramaditya of Uijain, Bharata built a Shiva temple of Mecca. Even today, Coorgs'/Ahma Kodavas' valuable traditional attire, dance, and modified peechekati are intact, which is the cultural treasure for the Yemeni tribes even though they have modified their Jambia, traditional attire and dances. Thanks giving Day or Puthri is a harvest festival of Coorgs/ Ahma Kodavas. A final thought: around 550 BC, Takshashila (Taxila) University, a Vedic Learning Center was established at northwestern Bharata. Once ancient Greek was the second language, and even today some Greek is spoken locally because around 450 BC, many Greek students were welcomed to study at Taxila University. The Romans, Egyptians, Mesopotamians, Tibetans, Jewish people, Central Asians, and Middle Easterners also studied at Takshashila University. One should know that the Roma's Latin, around 850 B C and the Greek, around 600 B C were composed from the ancient Samskritam called Brāhmī Script. Around 500 BC various regions of elite Bharatians went to study at world's oldest Taxila University. So, it is any one's educated speculation how the Greek words were migrated into the region of Coorg.

2100 BC BHARATA

Ancient Bharatians have migrated across the Central Asia, Middle Eastern, and Eastern European peninsula tens of thousands years before the World War MahaBharata of 3,115 BC. A vast majority of the Eastern Europeans, and Central Asians including Abkhazians, Ossetians, Scythians, Persians, and Turkish were origin of ancient Bharata. DNA: Prior to World War MahaBharata, some Central Asian tribal societies have migrated to ancient America and those societies continued their Indus dharma in their newly founded land. The Vedic era Paganism spread across the Middle East, Egypt-Africa, Central Asia, Far East, Eastern Europe, Asia Minor, Greek peninsula, and Roma Empire. In 484 BC, the Modern Greek historian Herodotus was born in the western Persian Empire. Young Herodotus traveled to Greece, Egypt-Africa-Aethiopia, Middle East, Hebrew land, and Bharata. In his book Herodotus detailed his encounters during his visit to Taxial region of Western Bharata where he met heavily populated Northern Africans, specifically ancient Aethiopians, also known as Abyssinians, modem day Ethiopia, the Kingdom of Kush: the inhabited world according to Herodotus. See the map of Northern Africa-Aethiopia. (Amharic an Afroasiatic language of the Semitic branch an Ethiosemitic group and Ethiopian mother tongue is Amhara). About 9,000 years ago, Indus-Harappan civilization populated Middle East and Egypt. In the modern Middle East the Indus town names Suriappa, Rudrappa, Karma, Brosiappa, Muthanna, Black King Cobra temple, Khayappa, and Harish and in Egypt OM, Nagamadi and Rani to name a few still remains. Sea Trading between Bharata and the Middle East-Africa continued for over 6,000 years. Northern African andEthiopian women used to wear long cloth wrapped around their body without a blouse and their traditions continued in Bharata after the new mass migration of northern Africans and Ethiopians (Vedic era Pagans) onto Bharata, say around 2,100 BC. Eventually African women's cloth worn around their body became a new Indus Sari with numbers of Pleats on the Front also on the Rear wrapped around their waist, which is a modified version. Today, direct descendants of African tribal women living at the remote regions of Bharata continue to wear long cloth wrapped around their body without a blouse - see the images. There are eighty various Sari styles worn by the Indus women across the subcontinent of Bharata including Sri Lenke. The royal Egyptian women's dress worn by Greek, Roma Empire women and the modern western women also. Ancient Vedic era Indus women's dress Sattika in Samskritam is worn by the Islamic women of today. The Punjabis, Tamales/Tamils and Bangal Deshis celebrate ancient Ethiopian New Year's Day, which falls on April 14/15 Gregorian calendar, not a Vedic New Year's Day, the First Day of Chaitra, which is celebrated throughout Bharata including Persia and Turkey. In the Bharatian subcontinent about seventy percent of the inhabitants were African origin; assimilations and genetic mutation has taken place. However, Bharatian subcontinental people are ignorant in their origin of genetic assimilations despite DNA evidence. In Bharata migrated Africans in their new land elevated their status from salves to soldiers to generals to Rajas establishing their tiny kingdoms across the Bharatian subcontinent and the Africans rulers have multiplied across the subcontinent when the Islamic and the Europeans arrived. Presently, densely populated ancient assimilated Africans live in the regions of Utra Pradesh, Bengal Desh, Gujarat, Orissa, Kerala, Tamale/Tamil land, Andra Pradesh, parts of Karnataka, Sri Lenke and sparsely populated across Bharata, Nepal and Pakistan. Note: Humans have migrated across the globe for two million years and the modern day human migrations across the world are one such great example. In this Kali Yuga the glory days of Vedic era "Shanatana Dharma" will never going to return to Bharata, Sri Lenke and Patala Loka as Hindus are anticipating. There are three distinct human races on the earth and the human race NOT only evolved from African continent. (1). Ancient human races evolved on continent MU - Six-million-years old (2). Bharata – four million-years old (3). Africa – only two a half million-years old. The First phase of Kali Yuga 5,126 years terminates in 2024 and a new era begins from 2025 CE. Some dramatic changes across globe would take place and five nations are preparing for a new era. Eventually an astronomical event would take place. The present day Kali Yuga will terminates approximately in 427,000-years. In the future numerous Islands and some parts of the various continents may plummet into the Ocean: this has happened before and it will happen again in the future. The Sun's Quantum Shift pushes the present day planetary orbital position a bit farther into the space. After the next Quantum Shift, the earth's new orbit might have 375-days-a-year. After 427,000-years into the final days of Kali Yuga, the earth's orbit would be at the previous orbit of Mars. The planet Venus will be at the original orbit position of the Earth and eventually human evolution emerges on the Venus.

The Sattika was the ancient Indus women's attire in Samskritam worn during the Vedic era. The ancient African women wore a large Bindi on their forehead with some other facial marking. The ancient Indus women wore tiny Bindi in-between their eyebrows, which is a Kutasta/Atom. The elite Vedic Brahmins classified the new African migrants as untouchable lower caste, Ahdharmasya and their caste status are remains to this day. In the Bharatian subcontinent people with dark to black gum color and dark to black skin color humans are one hundred percent African origin. In order to avoid the unprivileged Indus caste systems most of the lower caste untouchable people were converted into Buddhism, Christianity and Islam. In the future of Kali Yuga, the unethical faiths including Buddhism, Christianity and Islam will be fazed out restoring peace on the earth for 10,000 years of golden age.
