some BADUGU(Badaga) SlOkaas(sayings/proverbs) -

            I clollected around 1000 Badugu  SlOkaas/sayings. But as they were written 60 ot 70 years back, by the then elders in their then-freshly known tamil language,   the Actual pronunciations  are not known. This is because  Tamil has no script for the series of letters starting with ga,ba, da, dha, qwa,gwa,   whereas such pronunciations are abundant in Badugu language, like in Kannada, Malayalam, Telugu etc,                                                                          So it is not possible to find the right pronunciation of the words written by them in Tamil.
