Bella Bajil Mangalore: The Sahyadri Samrakshana Sanchaya and other Friendly associations organised ‘Bella Baajel’ (Jaggery and Water) an awareness programme on environment to mark the World Environment Day at Hampanakatta circle in Mangalore here on Thursday, June 5.

Kuttar Thimmakka was inaugurated the programme with traditional song by Aati Kalenja with a traditional dance. Dinesh Holla, environmentalist was organised the programme.

A few years ago, in Hampankatta area a old person named Appana served free water and jaggery to the travelers. That is the traditional welcome drink that was served in the coastal regions long back. Appana was famous for his service. After that Appanna Katte changed to Hampana Katte.

For this memory Sahyadri Samrakshana Sanchaya organised this unique programme at Hamapana Katte circle. On this occasion Aati Kalenja welcomed guests by water and jaggery. For a special attraction nine different streams of Netravati river named Elaneeru Hole, Bandaje Hole, Mrityunjaya Hole, Aniyoori Hole, Sunaala Hole, Neriya Hole, Kapila Hole, Kempu Hole and Kumaradhara Hole are exhibited on nine different mud pots filled by waters.

In the next 30 years, we can’t see the Mangalore city if it is continues like this.
