Badaga Community

I had mentioned about Jakkanare Sivaji Raman’s book on Badaga Community called ‘Badaga Samudhaayam’.Sivaji Raman No price is mentioned for this book but you may get it in Kotagiri.
There are a lot of interesting nuggets of new information that many of us are not even aware of. Here is a sample of ‘rare’ pictorial pickings. [All the pictures are from the book]
When a village was [hatti] was formed, a ‘Hethappa [Ancestor] Kallu [Stone]’ was created and then a ‘Devva Mane [God’s House – Temple]’ was built.

‘Hebbaiyilu’ [First /Big Threshold]’ is the entrance to a village [Akka Bakka?]. It consists of two vertical stone pillars with a central horizontal stone containing carvings.
