I have attempted to make the Badaga Calendar for 2007 keeping in mind that a Badaga month should start on the 10th of an English month as far as possible and also to ensure that the number of days in a month is either 30 or 31 days.

The Badaga Calendar [2007] for AADHIRE & AADI as well as AAVANI & PERATTADHI[corresponding to May - Sep] is displayed below. FM is for Full Moon - Paurnami (Hunnave) & NM is for New Moon - Amavaasai (Muttu)

My Badaga Calendar for GOODALU (JAN - FEB) 2007 is given below by admin (wish they had acknowledged the fact that the image displayed is mine) icon_wink.gif

I have posted the complete Calendar for 2007 in http://badaga.wordpress.com/badaga-calendar

Like in any other calendar, there are 12 months and each month starts on the 10th of English Calendar month but for a few exceptions due to the fact that the month of Feb has 28/29 days [leap year].

Since Badagas consider ‘Sovara’ (Monday) as the most auspicious and ‘holy’ day, they have attached a lot of importance to that day. Generaly, no non-vegetarian food is taken on Mondays. This is also the weekly holiday and hence shown on top in red colour.

The biggest festival of Badagas is day-specific and not date-specific. That is to say that this festival - HETHE HABBA - always falls on a Monday [after twelve full moons and on the first Monday of the thirteenth fullmoon]. By the way,full Moon (‘Pournami’ in Tamil) is ‘HUNNAVE’ [pronounced similar to :- hunnu – wound, awai – mother] and New Moon ['amavasai in tamil'] is ‘MUTTU’ in Badaga. Hunnave and Muttu days have a white and black circle next to the date.

I must put on record my great appreciation to Mr.Sivaprakash. B.Sc.,B.Ed (Dhavane Village) and ‘Naakku Betta’ magazine [1979 Goodalu issue] for their pioneering effort on this subject.

For the year 2007

1) G(K)oodalu – From 10th Jan to 8th Feb

2) Aalaani - From 9th Feb to 10th Mar

3) Nallaani - From 11th Mar to 9th Apr

4) Aani - From 10th Apr to 9th May

5) Aadire - From 10th May to 9th Jun

6) Aadi - From 10th Jun to 9th Jul

7) Aavaani - From 10th Jul to 9th Aug

8 ) Perattaadhi(Perattasi) - From 10th Aug to 9th Sep

9) Dhodda Devige - From 10th Sep to 9th Oct

10) Kiru Divige - From 10th Oct to 9th Nov

11) Thai - From 10th Nov to 9th Dec

12) Hemmatti - From 10th Dec to 9th Jan


I am aware that there is always a slip between the cup and the lip and some errors could have crept into this attempt. May I request all those interested to keep up our great traditions to write in their comments and suggestions so that improvements can be incorporated.

My dream is that a Badaga Calendar should adorn all our homes soon.

From the Forum FAQ's: Can I post Images?

Images can be shown in your posts. However, you cannot upload the images directly to this board. Instead you must link to an image stored on a publicly accessible web server, e.g. http://www.somewebsite.com/mypicture.gif. You cannot link to pictures stored on your own PC (unless it is a publicly accessible server) nor to images stored behind authentication mechanisms such as Hotmail or Yahoo mailboxes, password-protected sites, etc. To display the image use either the BBCode [img] tag or appropriate HTML (if allowed).

In this case:

It is a pleasant surprise to hear all the Badaga Months from "KOODALU to HEMMATTI" being mentioned in this 'BADAGA DANCE ' number called ' KAPPU UTTILEYU at http://music.cooltoad.com/music/song.php?id=286964

Good Music !

The more I listen to the above mentioned song 'Kappu Uttileyu' by PRIYARAGAVA , the more fascinated I become. The foot tapping duet dance [Aadu] number is worth downloading http://music.cooltoad.com/music/song.php?id=286964 to 'let the hair down' and unwind.

The lyrics of the song go like this :-

Kappu huttileyu neppuna sundari,
Oppi hegileyu dhirachiya mundari

Kappu huttile naa hathuna notta dha,
Keppu na huttile ondhuna notta tha


Thatti beetha sileyu nee edhega,
Kottu beetha hennu naa edhaga
Muthu muthu mookathiga sokki hodhane, netti niddane
Sothu pathu neetha endhu kaathundhu endhe dha, matha hegu dha, madhuvaya matha hegudha,

KOODALU thinguvana koodile singarene ,
AALAANI thinguvatha aa aagi varasha mamma ,
NALLANI go kollaandhu hega beda, ,
AANI huttidha mele badhila hegine baa mamma ,

AADHIRE jena nodi bae thumbi maathaadu ,
AADI mudidha mele ododi bannane mamma,
AAVANI thinguvadhoge dhaavani singarava
,
Arattu perattu aara PERATTASI thinguvadha,

DODDA DIVIGEYA dodda kiru edhega
,
KIRU DIVIGEYA siri devi aagi banne ,
THAI mae thalaiga thatti kai yoda aatta paatta.
HEMMATTI ebbaneyu aemaathithindhu hoga beda ,

Thatti beetha sileyu nee edhaga ,
Kottu beetha hennu naa edhega
