Perhaps the above work of Late Thyagi. KP Raju Gowder was inspired from Late MK Bellie Gowder of Achanakall Village who enumerated the houses of all the clans/kola of the community in 1932.

[It may be pointed out here that Prof.Paul Hockings who has done a lot of work on Badagas has mentioned Mr.MK Bellie Gowder in his works/books. It is claimed that the original manuscript of Bellie Gowder is now with Prof.Paul Hockings. Is it so Prof? – Wg Cdr JP]

    Excellent and painstaking work. JP uncle do you think Prof is intentionally not responding to your question? hmmm… interesting. What is it that he doesn’t want to divulge?


  2. Dear JP anna…

    MK Nanja Gowder, the younger brother of MK Bellie Gowder, was my maternal grandfather. Right from my childhood, he used to relate stories to me from Bellie ayya’s works. He told me that, Bellie ayya had one day called him (Nanja ayya) to discuss in private about one of his manuscripts. He had asked Nanja ayya to go through the entire manuscript for his personal consumption and at the end of which, he requested Nanja ayya to destroy the manuscript. Nanja ayya, told me that it was the History of Badagas. The reason, he said, why Bellie ayya wanted it to be destroyed is because he believed that it would bring undesired division among’st Badagas.

    Now I am not sure if the manuscript that I am talking about (History of Badagas) is different from the Badaga ‘clans/kolas’ manuscript that you say could probably be in possession of Dr Hockings. It would be great service to the Badaga community if the original manuscript is made public, if it does exist.

    Regards … Paddy
