India history and geogprahy
Male (“garland”) is one of the many exogamous septs (division) among the Holeyas (field labourers). There are customs remaining which seem to indicate that the Holeya people were once masters of the land.Source: Project Gutenberg: Castes and Tribes of Southern India, Volume 1
