This story begins with three sisters that lived in the villages of
Adyar, Mijar, and Bantwal in the middle of the 19th Century A.
D.
These three sisters are our roots. These three sisters have
not left the names of their parents for us. But in the future,
one among us will look into the village records of Kannada
districts to investigate. These three sisters got married and
bore many children who became our forefathers.
The eldest sister Bhagirathi got married to Mijar Madhav
Shenoy. The second sister got married to Hiranki
Ramachandra Kini. The youngest sister got married to Mijar
Annappa Kamath. Mijar Madhav Shenoy and Mijar Annappa
Kamath lived in the Badagu Yedapadavu area of Mijar village.
The name of the eldest sister elluded me for a long time until
Varadaraya of Yedapadavu, the great-grandson told me that
it was Bhagirathi. Bhagirathi, the eldest sister was married to
Mijar Madhav Shenoy whose progeny consists of about 600
known members in the present list. Raghuram aged 90 years
(as in 2012) is a grandson of Mijar Madhav Shenoy and the
youngest son of latter’s second son Manjunath. Raghuram
gave me information of this branch of our Parivar.
Relationship of Sampige Kini family with Adyar
Gopalkrishna Shenoy family
Sampige Madhav Kini was the grand-father of Radha. His
wife was Parvathi. Radha’s maiden name was Amba. Amba’s
mother Radhu was the third daughter of Parvathi and
Madhav Kini. When she was 12 years old her father arranged
her marriage with Manjunath the third child of Mijar Annappa
Kamath. Manjunath had a nick name, Cherdappa. Manjunath,
yani Cherdappa, and Radhu lead a peaceful life in Mijar.
(The word yani means also known as, aka for short.) Radhu
became pregnant and after the ceremony of Sheemanth (akin
to baby shower) Radhu went to Sampige for delivery. It was a
custom to send the daughter-in-law to her maternal home for
her first delivery. Radhu gave birth to a girl on 1-4-1916 and
she was named Amba. It is the same Amba who became
Radha Bai after her wedding with Gopalakrishna or Adyar
Gopal.

Relation between Manchkal Lakshman Kudva and Adyar
Gopalakrishna Shenoy family
The second daughter, Subbamma, of Sampige Madhav Kini
got married to Lakshman Kudva of Mundkur. Lakshman was
the third son of Krishna Kudva. The eldest was Cherdappa.
The second son was Upendra. The fourth son was
Narasimha. Krishna had daughters also but their names have
gone obscure. Subbamma gave birth to many children out of
which seven survived. Lakshman moved to Manchkal. Radhu
and her children visited Manchkal frequently. Subbamma’s
married name was Saraswathi. Subbamma took Amba very
kindly and showered affections during Amba’s visits. There
was deep love between the children of Subbamma and of
Radhu. There was a similar love between the children of
Amba and grandchildren of Subbamma

Relations between Mijar Annappa Kamath and the Adyar
Gopalakrishna Family:
Yamuna, the eldest daughter of Mijar Annappa Kamath
whose married name was Kamala, was to spend the rest of
her life as a widowed mother of six children but entirely
dependent on her parents for financial support.
Gopal and his five siblings grew up in Mijar in Annappa
Kamath’s house.. Kamala came to Mijar with her infant son
Padmanabha in her laps.
