Our community is known for the extraordinary hospitality extended by our people to all, known or unknown. But I feel this fame is slowly fading away.

Any experiences?

Hi Bharath
I too wish we maintain the same hospitality all through.
But this feeling came after my experience a few days ago.
I happened to fly from Bhubaneswar to Chennai. In the flight, a family was seated in a row just ahead of mine. As I heard the child speaking in Badaga with his parents, I was indeed happy to find one of our people away from our place. I did not waste a minute. I eagerly approached the person and tried to enquire about him. But I was taken aback when he did not reciprocate in the right manner. You will never believe. He just answered 'Yes, Iam a Badaga' and turned back. I felt insulted.
Do you think such persons will uphold our quality of hospitality?
I doubt very much.

Regards,
Mahesh

Dear Mr. Mahesh

We should not doubt our hospitality just based on an individual's reaction or behavior. If a BADAGA avoids having a conversation with another BADAGA in our mother tongue, then we cannot compromise that attitude. But, do not come to a wrong conclusion on our community's hospitality aspect. This tradition of hospitality is in our blood and that was inherited from our Ayya and Hethe.

Hi Gandhilaxman,

I too think the same way.
Let us also pass on this tradition to our kids, thereby ensuring that this fame doesn't fade away.

Regards,

Mahesh

Hi Mr Magesh

I'll just tell u an incident happened last year.
Last year I was working in Demo Repl of Congo(Africa) then I happened to hear about this site(badaga.org). While going through this site I saw a person named Mr Jayakumar was also in the nation with his family.But he was in some other town which is almost 2000km away from my place. As I was alone and bored I just taken his address from this site and I mailed him by giving my contact number. And after two days he called me and he came to my place and we had a good time.

What I mean to say is there is no relation between myself and Mr.Jayakumar.But what made him to come and meet me? Only reason is that we both are Badagas and the best hospitality which we learned from our ancestors.

Regards
Bharath.

Hi Bharath,

That's very nice to hear.
I too expect such an attitude from every Badaga.

Mahesh
