Purana and Itihasa (epic history)Source: archive.org: Shiva Purana - English Translation
Bandin (बन्दिन्) refers to “bards”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.4.7 (“Commencement of the War”).—Accordingly, as Brahmā narrated to Nārada: “[...] The gods and the demons stood in their arrays on the ground with a vast army ready to start the battle. With the bards (bandin) singing their songs of praise, the armies of the gods and the Asuras shone in their eagerness to pounce on and crush each other. The two armies as vast as a wild jungle roared. They were terrific to the coward and pleasing to the brave. [...]”.
The Purana (पुराण, purāṇas) refers to Sanskrit literature preserving ancient India’s vast cultural history, including historical legends, religious ceremonies, various arts and sciences. The eighteen mahapuranas total over 400,000 shlokas (metrical couplets) and date to at least several centuries BCE.

1) Bandi (“cart”) is one of the exogamous septs (divisions) among the Kapus (the largest caste in the Madras Presidency). The Kapus or Reddis (Ratti) appear to have been a powerful Dravidian tribe in the early centuries of the Christian era. The term Kapu means a watchman, and Reddi means a king.
2) Bandi (“cart”) is one of the exogamous septs (divisions) among the Koravas (a nomad tribe of the North Arcot district). The Korava nomad tribe permeates the length of the Indian peninsula, through countries where many languages and dialects are spoken, are likely to be known by different names in different localities.
3) Bandi (“cart”) is one of the gotras (clans) among the Kurnis (a tribe of South India). Kurni is, according to the Census Report 1901, “a corruption of kuri (sheep) and vanni (wool), the caste having been originally weavers of wool”. The gotras (viz., Bandi) are described as being of the Brahman, Kshatriya, and Vaisya sub-divisions of the caste, and of Shanmukha’s Sudra caste.
4) Bandi (“cart”) is one of the exogamous septs (divisions) among the Kurubas (a tribe of South India). The Kurubas are sub-divided into clans or gumpus, each having a headman or guru called a gaudu, who gives his name to the clan. And the clans are again sub-divided into gotras or septs (viz., Bandi).
5) Bandi (“cart”) is one of the exogamous septs (divisions) among the Malas (considered the Pariahs of the Telugu country) of the Reddi Bhumi section. The Mala people are almost equally inferior in position to the Madigas and have, in their various sub-divisions, many exogamous septs (e.g., Bandi).
The history of India traces the identification of countries, villages, towns and other regions of India, as well as mythology, zoology, royal dynasties, rulers, tribes, local festivities and traditions and regional languages. Ancient India enjoyed religious freedom and encourages the path of Dharma, a concept common to Buddhism, Hinduism, and Jainism.
