Madhwas and Telugu – 6/9/2016

When I said I wrote a book on Madhwas of Madras, one of my scholarly /historian friends wanted to know if I was a Madhwa.When I said yes, bang came her response,’ but I thought you are a Telugu’.Yes, I am a Telugu Madhwa I said and I could see she was not convinced .I said we Madhwas speak 4 languages-Telugu,kannada,marathi and Tulu depending on the region we belong to .’One of my ancestors too was a madhwa’, she said with pride. I thought she hadn’t done her homework . I feel  Like charity    the basic knowledge  of one’s   ancestry   too  should begin   at home.
