"biggening" for beginning

I heard the discoverer of a new tissue layer in the cornea interviewed on the radio today. His (South Asian) pronunciation of the word “beginning” sounded just like biggening to me. Biggening at the beginning of anything is pretty logical, so I went looking for evidence that others think so too. Hard to say whether these are just misspellings so I put it here.

The biggenings were harsh…. What I’m going to tell you is a story about two families that were dysfuctional from the biggening, a marriage that was meant to fail from the start

If we (Balouch) would have been against pakistan from the biggening then we would never have accepted pakistan as a a country.
