Do you know guys why some were tortured. The captured ladies in various chores such as tending horses, cooking, milking cows, serving food, packing beetle leaf. [paan packet] etc and even involved in the oldest profession, used gather information from the soldiers prior to the next battle with British. Tippu came know who was tipping the British soldiers as they were ready, at the strike zone. He hated these Srirangapatnam captive women and men all the more.
Never tell your secrets just to get better meal or other things.... A handed down story. Believe it or not. May not be out of place in this context.

Thanks a lot for your informative article which instigated fire in many of us. First time we get to know who the Syrian Catholics..

They are our own as our family itself.... interestingly many related stories also brought to light.... lastly you may have historical facts in your shelf narrating captivity by tippu sultan. Kindly share them here. Our present generation must know it’s roots.... please look into this...

Dr Gerry niddodi also can extend a helping hand... thanks to kemmnnu.com.

We need such articles more and more... Philip Richard.4e6

Mahatma Gandhi had visited Kallianpur too.

We r proud of him.

In 1934 Feb.25th while going to Kundapur from Udupi ,he was requested to deliver a speech in Kallianpur.

At the place now Milagres tri-centenary hall , there was Joseph elementary school.

He was warmly invited by a Catholic father. Gandhi delivered a short speech on eradication of untouchability & importance of Hindi.

His speech was translated into Tulu by some Pdiyar or Mallya.

A grand procession moved till River Swarna. Some Mogaveer family members had created a beautifully decorated boat specially for Gandhi to move towards Bikadi Shore (Kalau).

The only eye witness was Sri Anandraya Baliga I met him before his death.He told me about the event.He had his handshake with Gandhi.

It also said that Sri Puttu Bhat family had donated golden ring to him.But it is not recorded in Harijan Patrika.

So, there is some confusion about it.

Any way Gandhi was very much respected by people of Kallianpur.

We r proud of Gandhi.

Hi Prakash: Thanks for shedding some light (Prakash) here. The survivors from Tippu are writing and reading these columns. Please watch Chomana Dudi, a movie in youtube. The book was written by Shivaram Karanth.

It was not easy to own a piece of fertile land for lower caste or paradeshis these Govan migrants were as known. Finally, as written in the article, lands flooded during high tide and off-course rain flooded, were given to these people on chalageni. (rented).

My grandfather put coconut trees for thirty years, and then the chalageni land was reclaimed. He was back to Kasti Muunj. me too.

I knew Archie’s grand father whose Barga Kali plot was adjacent to my grandfathers. All the buffaloes in the area used to graze in these plots. Folks, we have come a long way. By writing we do acknowledge the help by the locals. We shall overcome. We do can.

Normally me and many like us avoid responding to various articles published in this portal.

The recently published brief history of our Kallianpur deanery, in a way almost today’s Udupi Diocese a well written document by Archibald Furtado, explaining what has happened, how and why…?

It’s a controversy within the hierarchy not with the people of God, no tussle for rituals and faith, but supremacy, authority and power…..Yes few enlightened priests thereafter tried to rectify the errors but damage already done….Dr. G. Pinto rightly observed.

Conclusion looks practical…..forget the leaders we from both sides have no issues can mingle, co-operate, support, have marital relationship without any hesitation…..Let the clergy do their job and we common man live a harmonious life….

Thank you very much.

DR. Gerald and all:

There are more than 3500 denominations/divisions in Christianity. As a result of eating the fruit in Eden, I suppose. Divisions are nothing but gaining power or trying not to lose power. Any herd wants to control, even the chicken, fish, animals.

At least this way wealth is trickled down and shared even by down right helpless poor. In this contest, I do thank Fr. Alfred Roche for turning my loin cloth into a neck tie. He went out of his way to help others, even after death there is hardly just lukewarm support to promote his beatification cause. Just as there are Rosario and Milagris church in Mangalore city, and in Kallianpur too (Voily and Sakayli) there are two churches in Brahmavar (Barmarghar and ?) as well. Fr. Alfred tried to bring many a Brahmavar padthy families under Catholic fold and succeeded. I know many such families in Matapady, Mabukal, Harady etc.

Hope healthy discussions will not lead into defrocking. We have to learn from history, at least in this google age. Archie, you can face this. Yes you can.

An eye-opener to many like us who were always thinking that Syrian Christians in and around Brahmavar are hailing from Kerala, though they share the same culture and language like their RC brothers

DR Gerald Pinto, kallainpur
22/02/2019 20:14:50

Graet priest Fr Alfred Roche told me once- Educational department asked him to start a high school at Barhmavr perhaps then existing primary school. He tried his level best to get the permission of Bishop Valerian Fernandes. But Bishop did not agree. If agreed in Brahmavar there would have been an education hub of Catholics. But I don’t regret at least our Syrian brothers have taken up this task. This happens if we have religious leaders without any vision.

Dr Gerald Pinto, kallianpur
22/02/2019 20:08:04

Church histrouy in most of the cases is politics of power. Goa and Veraplooy, Padrevado-Propoganda all were struggle for power. The power hungry superiors even not spared holy now Saint Joseph. Prior to Sism of Brahmavar Mt Rosary went away, Ok that time . Same thing happened in Shirva but two churches united and build single church. Do we need two churches within one KM and fight for many things including competition for educational institutions if we believe in one Christ. Jesus had only one mother any one disagree?
1857 episode was the plot of Goan Bishop executed by Rev Fr David Pereira then priest, but he was withdrawn by the Bishop because of warning of Pope because of treaty between Vatican and Portugal. We aly people fight among ourselves but what are we according to Cannon law? Has the vice president has any right? If Bishop Bishop wants there can be Parish council other wise need not. 90% of parishes in India there are no Parish councils that we have in Mangalore in Udupi. They are there due to dynamic bishop Basil such Bishop we have yet to see.

James Fernandes, Barkur/Chicago
21/02/2019 23:26:06

How do we know Alfred about the great works unless someone writes and publishes about it?
By the time DO GOOD puts on its shoes, negative news travels half way around the world they say.

Why people clap? To encourage, I suppose. Feel good.
