Challenging a Social Injustice: The Kadu Golla Community's



  Aug 14, 2023

Social Evil:Kadu Golla community


In a rural village called Mallenahalli in Karnataka, a tragic incident occurred due to an age-old tradition. The Kadu Golla community practices a custom where newborns and their mothers are confined to makeshift structures called "gudlu" for a period of four to eight weeks after birth due to the belief that the postpartum period is impure (sutaka). Vasantha, a young mother from this community, lost her newborn due to this practice. Despite protests against this tradition, some within the community still enforce it.
 
The Kadu Golla community, an OBC group, faces challenges in terms of basic facilities and infrastructure in their settlements. Lack of proper roads, water supply, sanitation, and education facilities affects their well-being. Some community members believe that while legal rehabilitation would help, any reform should consider the community's cultural identity.
 
Efforts are being made to raise legal awareness among the community members and to provide them with basic resources. The district administration is working to convert settlements into revenue villages to provide legal status and access to amenities. Balancing the need for change with the preservation of cultural heritage is a complex challenge. Despite disagreements within the community, there's a consensus that such tragedies must not recur.
 
The situation in Mallenahalli sheds light on the clash between traditional practices, social progress, and the need for infrastructural development in marginalized communities.
