Did you know that the little area called Coorg on the border between Karnataka and Kerala (southern india) was a separate state? In 1950, with Indian independance, Coorg was made into a separate state. It lost this status and was merged into Karnataka in 1956. Kodavas, the inhabitants of Coorg are an interesting people. Speculation about their origin covers a wide range of options with some claiming that they are desendants of Greek soldiers who came with Alexander the Great and others saying that they are desendants of the peoples of Mohenjadaro. Whatever their origins, it is clear that they are a martial race, have good-looking women, spin tall yarns and make a mean pork-curry. Which four aspects make them an interesting people to home-stay with.
