Badaga girls in 1909 or earlier from E.Thurston’s book “Castes and Tribes of South India” published in 1909 by Government Press, Madras, which also appears as a cover page in another book 'Civilising Natures'

At first glance it appears as if these girls are wearing ‘pattu – head gear’.Take a closer look, their heads have been partially shaven. Did this signify any particular custom or period in the lives of these very young girls. No info is available in Thurston’s book.
