MIGRATION OF TELUGUS TO MALAYSIA

Malaysian Telugus have migrated to this country as Traders during the Sri Vijaya Period from the Kalinga Pradesham in Andhra. Second, they came during 19th and 20 th century as clerks and indentured labourers. There are also more than 5000 Telugu professionals who have come to Malaysia in the 90's and 2000's.

In my article on 'The Five Generation of Telugus in Malaysia' there are some gaps I need to fill. I will appreciate if you could inform me thru the comment column the following:-

i. THE NAME OF THE VILLAGE YOUR ANCESTORS HAVE COME FROM
ii. THE NAME OF THE TINDAL (KANGANI) WHO BROUGHT YOUR PARENTS HERE
iii. THE NAME OF THE ESTATE YOU SETTLED FIRST
iv. YOUR FAMILY SURNAME

Thank you
