Saavu Harakke – Karu Harachodhu 
Some time early, VIMAL.S [Manjoo?] had sent me a rare publication of ” Saavu Harakke -Karu Harachodu” by Ketti Achanakal M.K.Nanja Gowder who had given credit to the ORIGINAL author and his father [Ketti Achanakal] late M.Kaala Gowder who published this on 25-9-1944 (Given below)
Late Mr.M.K.Nanja Gowder, was, in many ways the FIRST BADAGA, to have gathered and recorded a lot of information on and about Badagas and published a few of them. His manuscripts were given to many ‘ Foreign Researchers’ and I am not sure where they are now.
How wonderful it would be if we could access these rare manuscripts!
Thank you, Vimal.

I am the younger son of M K Nanja Gowder Ex MP. Thank you for publishing the Saavu Harakke, originally written by Late M Kala Gowder (Miyya Kala Gowder), father of M K Nanja Gowder of Achanakal, Ketti Village.
As you have mentioned in the article, many manuscripts of my father were given to foreign researchers. Also our Badaga researchers and writers of our community collected a number of details about our community, from my father. Mr K P Raju Gowder of Kadasholai village, some teachers of our community, belonging to Thambatty village, Bikkole village, are among the notable scholars. I do not know all of them.
That documents were used to produce to the Central Govt. Officials, to add evidence to include our Community to Scheduled Tribes list”.
Thank you N Bellie (LIC) for the info – JP
