Abstract

The purpose of the present study is to describe, analyze, understand and draw conclusions on the nature of British domination in Coorg and highlight issues pertaining to the Western Medicine and Indigenous Response in Colonial Coorg. The paper attempts to study nature of the contest between indigenous and western medicines in Colonial Coorg. Western medicine was introduced initially for benefit of British in India and later extended to Indian population as a tool of empire.
