It is unfortunate but true. There are still a lot of ‘greedy’ Badagas who feel that ‘all property’ should go ONLY to a son / sons and and not to the daughter/daughters. These people, many of them- ‘educated idiots’ of both genders, would justify their claim and contention by saying only a son CAN be warisu or heir. Needless to say, they are living in an ancient world [when, in a Badaga Family], girls were NOT treated as EQUALS and like in any other Indian Community, they were sort of discriminated.
This flawed thinking is very much against the rule of the land. The Indian constitution and present rules and regulations ensure that GIRLS GET EQUAL SHARE of the properties of their parents and ancestors [as BOYS]. Any discrimination in this respect is a criminal offence punishable under law.
But still many ‘self appointed’ and hapless Badaga kap leaders and Gowdas, live under a false notion that all property is for males only. This cancerous notion which is destroying the harmonious Badaga family system needs to be cut and CUT NOW. Unfortunately, the people mainly responsible for this ‘cancer’, you guessed it, are females – wives,mothers and grand mothers with ulterior motives.
It is high time we start treating this cancer of Warisu with all the contempt it deserves and cut it off before it destroys the very fabric that is uniting the community.
More, with many examples, will follow….
