He was followed by minister H N Ananth Kumar and wife Tejaswini, who clapped loudly as it passed by. Eight women and two men from Kodagu danced, while a couple dressed in traditional Kodava attire walked along. Coffee plants, the harvest, grinding and mixing coffee at different levels of production, were on display to the admiration of the huge crowd and the dignitaries.
