Up to the beginning of this century, this community as a whole – may be a thousand families including the branches termed ‘Kowshika’ ‘Bettadapura’ and ‘Malanadu’ was generally averse to take up any kind of servitude either in Government or in private sectors, because of its extraordinary passion for leading an independent life. It was allergic to modern education too. Perhaps their strong liking for an independent and self-sufficient way of life lead to their choosing the agriculture profession involving tough physical labor.
