Sēvala (“service”) is one of the many exogamous septs (division) among the Gollas (a great pastoral caste of the Telugu people). The traditions of the Golla caste give a descent from the god Krishna and the hereditary occupation of the Gollas is tending sheep and cattle, and selling milk.
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.
