  1. The author of the book, A Grammar of Badugu, and also the renowned Badugu language researcher, Anandhan has made our community proud and created enthusiasm amongst our youngsters and present generation people to learn and know more about our language. I request all our community well-wishers to buy this book and keep ready at our bookshelves for our young children to learn and know more about our language and also believe, soon our language will come out of the endangered position as indicted by UNESCO recently. The author’s works are most appreciated and thank him forever for his dedicated work for our community well being and upliftment. Regards
