Dear Members,

I have a couple of requests that I hope you will give your opinion about.

We have quite a few non-badaga scholars like Prof Paul Hockings who have done some sterling work on us and put the badagas on the world map. I feel it is time they are honoured and recognised for their efforts by our community. Some like Prof Hockings have nearly spent a lifetime doing research on us and published lots of material. Facilitating these researchers on our badaga day would be the least we can do to acknowledge their work for our community.

The other request is to ask these researchers to kindly donate some their articles for the website as trying to get hold of their work is very expensive.

Best wishes

Rajkumar,
We (NBK Team) are in the process of setting up a Recognition program. Under this program we have planned to recognise Prof Paul Hockings work under one of its theme.
Tks,
RN

Prof Paul Hocking's writing on badaga proverbs is partly available in the web site. It makes very interesting reading Several proverbs [ Perhaps not known to several of Us ] available on website.

Honour to Prof Paul Hockings is more appropriate by our association

Dear members, Following details about Badaga Research is located.

Along with Dr Paul Hockings honouring Franche researcher MB Emeneau is also worths as we see in the publication below.


itre du document / Document title

Another Nilgiri language treated in depth = Une autre langue nilgiri traitée en profondeur

Auteur(s) / Author(s)
ZVELEBIL K. V. ;
Résumé / Abstract
In his paper on the languages of the Nilgiris (in Blue Mountains: The Ethnography and Biogeography of South Indian Region [Delhi, 1989], 133-43), M. B. Emeneau writes: Once the linguistic area (or microarea) has been established by the identification of structural traits-and I think it is now established, at least in a preliminary way-it may be bolstered by examination of lexical items. The work discussed in this review article does precisely that, examining Badaga lexical items in as many contexts as possible (etymology, semantics, phraseology, cultural significance). In addition, its authors offer much more. It is in fact a linguistic and cultural encyclopedia of the Badaga language, an independent formation in its details, and of the Badaga community, the most important of the Nilgiri communities, both as to their number (at least 125,000 today) as well as to their growing economic, administrative, linguistic, and even political influence.
