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.
The history of India traces the identification of countries, villages, towns and other regions of India, as well as 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.
