Kara Hunnime celebrated

Farmers celebrated ‘Kara Hunnime’, to mark the end of summer and the onset of monsoon, across the district on Tuesday.

In the morning, farmers washed bullocks and painted them with different colours and tied cockades, pompoms, forehead knots, hip belts and foot jingles. They also offered a special puja with sweet dishes like holige, huggi and sweet rice.

Thereafter, they organised a bullock race as part of the celebration.

“I am happy to decorate bullocks, which we consider as our own children and offer them puja with sweet dishes as part of Kara Hunnime, which is a festival for all farmers,” Mallikarjun Gulagi, a farmer, said.
