P. T. Bopanna
P. T. Bopanna (Palanganda Thimmaiah Bopanna) was born on the 30th of June in 1950. He is a journalist and author from Kodagu District in Karnataka, India. Bopanna’s career covers working in some of India’s leading English dailies. He is the author of seven books, most of which are on Kodagu and cover topics ranging from tourism, culture and politics, to coffee.
Bopanna’s various digital assets (websites & social media) were developed over the years and provide a wealth of information on Kodagu. They cover the hilly land’s unique cuisine and jewellery, details of the home stays and news from the region.
Going from journalism to activism for Kodagu-related causes was probably a natural progression for Bopanna, as was teaching journalism, with his extensive experience, in the colleges of Bengaluru.
