Do not lose a piece of paradise called the Nilgiris / Nakku Betta

Yes, it is highly tempting to sell our land [mostly planted with tea] due to the unbelievable prices offered by outsiders, the so called ‘Bombay Buyers’ as claimed by the brokers -many of whom are, believe it or not, Badagas.

But have you given a thought why ‘they’ are buying land in the Nilgiris, Nakku Betta?

The beauty, clean air and the feeling of living with the Nature – in short our land as handed down to us by our ancestors is nothing but a piece of paradise on earth.

Even if we have to sell our property, please make sure that you retain atleast a small portion to build a house and enough land for a ‘hola – vegetable garden’.

Remember, if you sell your land today, it is going to be impossible to buy any land in the Nilgiris in future for the prices are going to be very high.

  1. Sir,
    The issue of so many Badagas selling their lands to non- badagas, is purely a case of necessity for liquid cash on an immediate basis, for various reasons deemed important and urgent by whomsoever the seller be, based on his situation, circumstances and liabilities. Moreover, this isn’t a one-case scenario , rampantly associated with only one community or one region. It is a world wide economic activity born out of the basic market forces of demand and supply. In view of this, as global citizens of a global world , we should adapt to living pragmatically, without any over-bearings or attachments to tangible assets.

  2. ALREADY 40% OF LANDS OR TEA ESTATES ARE SOLD OUT. AND AS YOU KNOW PEOPLE HOW SUFFERING WITH TEA ESTATES, NO MANPOWER, NO PRICE, PRICE OF FERTILIZER AND COST OF LIVING. MAY BE AFTER 10 YEARS ALL ESTATES SOLD AND BADAGAS IN NILGIRIS TO VACATE!!!! EITHER TIRUPUR LIKE THAT PLACE. NOW NO MORE PLACE FOR BADAGAS IN OOTY. IN 2025 NILGIRIS MAY BE OCCUPIED BY HIGHLY CORRUPTED POLITICIANS AND FOREIGNERS. SO IT IS BETTER TO FORGET FROM NOW WE ARE BADAGAS, SOON WE WILL SAME AS (OLAYA) NO OTHER WAY. BY COMMENTING ITSELF MY HEART PAINING, BUT THIS WILL HAPPEN. YOU SEE!!!!
