History

Reddy its word: Origin In the history of many races and castes got great regard for their remarkable services rendered services in education religion and literature and fine arts. One among such castes is 'Reddy'. No other word in India has got such a detailed and convincing history as the word 'Reddy'. Reddy’s are farmers, they are Kings, they are Journalists, they are Poets, they are Patriots who stood in front row in the freedom fight, and they are Writers, Politicians. If you question your self what they are not? Answer will be they are everything and they are in every field. Several patriots from REDDY community caring very less for their properties and participated in freedom fight and lost their lives for the Independence of India. Eminent historians like Dr.Beryl and Dr.Mallampally Somasekhara Sharma proved on the basis of inscriptional evidence that The present word ‘REDDY’ has traveled several thousands of years changing its name several times to reach the present day. It was RATTAGUDI in 7th Century and was RATTOTI in the years 894. It was RADDHODI And RATHOD, and RATTADI in 10th century. It has then changed its Communities name As RATTAJIKAMU in1100, RADRIKAMU in 1153, RADI in 1238, and RADDI, and then Finally Settled as “REDDY”

Reddy’s Population
Till now 36 branches among Reddy Community are located and identified. As per 1991census almost 12%(96lakhs) of Andhra Pradesh state comprises of Reddy’s in Karnataka almost 6%(36 Lakhs), Tamilnadu 38 lakhs, Pondichery, Andaman and Nikobar it is 3,00,000. Remaining parts of India and world 10 lakhs. The Okkalinga community identifies itself with Reddy’s who are almost 60 lakhs in the state. In this way there are 22.5 million Reddy’s through out the world. It is estimated that there nearly 5,000 surnames in this community. But till now 1577 were located and collected.

Reddy Kingdoms
Several historians researched to know the origin of the Reddy Community. Having read all the Literature one can come to a conclusion that the famous historian and researcher Mr.B.N.Shastry’s writing could give us clear picture about it. Mr. Shastry in his book Reddy Rajya Sarwaswam revealed several interesting facts about Reddy community. Having studied several books one could be able to know that the existence of Reddy community was traced back to 11th and 12th Centuries. After the fall of Kakatiyas Reddys who were army commanders established their own kingdoms and built several dams and lakes for farming and drinking purpose, which still serve the purpose.
 They loved literature and fine arts. Prolaya Vema Reddy- (1324-1347) made Yerrapragada his court official where as Pedakomati Vema Reddy (1402-1420) appointed Sreenatha as Poet Laureate

Though some historians have reservations without any doubts Reddy’s were Rajputs.
There is concrete evidence for these claim Rashtrakutas are Simhadwaja Lanchanulu. Pedakomati Vema Reddy also had the same Lanchanam.

There are authentic proofs that Reddy community has marital relationship with Kshatriya’s (Kings). Mahamuni Kavya Kantha Ganapathi Shastry who wrote the fore word for Mr.Shastry’s book Reddy Rajya Sarvaswam mentioned this very clearly. Bheema Raju son of Bhakthiswara Choda who belongs to Surya Vamsha Karikala Choda Vamsha married his daughter Vemabika to Allada Reddy who was residing in Raja Mahendra Varam (Now called as Rajahmundry).
This was according to the research of the history said to be the 1st marriage between Reddy and Kshatriya Communities. There are proofs that Kind Dantuluri Ganna Bhoopal gave away his daughter Surambika to Ana Vema Reddy who ruled Addanki, Dharanikota, Kondaveedu in the marriage. The history also tells us that the very famous King among Chandra Vamsha Kings Harihara Deva Rayadu married his daughter Hariharamba to Kataya Vema Reddy. All these things prove that Reddy’s are kings.

about reddys

Reddy
Languages
  • Telugu
  • Tamil
  • Kannada
Reddy (also transliterated as Reddi, Raddi, Roddy, Ruddy) is an elite social group or caste of India, predominantly inhabiting Andhra Pradesh. They are enlisted as a forward caste by the government. Traditionally, they are a high-caste community of nobility, warriors and cultivator According to academics, they were a warrior caste in the remote past and later became feudal overlords and peasant proprietors

Historically they have been the land-owning aristocracy of the villages.Their prowess as rulers and warriors is well documented in Telugu history. The Reddy dynasty (1325 - 1448 CE) ruled coastal and central Andhra for over a hundred years.The origin of the social group of Reddys has been linked to the Rashtrakuta.
Reddys regard Telugu as their mother tongue. According to the 1921 census, they constituted 6.5% of the population of Andhra Pradesh.

Etymology

The word Reddy derives from the great "Rathis" or "Rattis", also known as the "Rattas" or "Rashtrikas"  who ruled the Deccan from ancient times

Varna status

The varna designation of Reddys is a contested and complex topic. Even after the introduction of the varna concept to south India, caste boundaries in south India were not as marked as in north India, where the four-tier varna system placed the priestly Brahmins on top followed by the Kshatriyas, Vaishyas, and Shudras. In south India, on the other hand, there existed only three distinguishable classes, the Brahmins, the non-Brahmins and the Dalits
 The two intermediate dvija varnas, Kshatriyas and Vaishyas did not exist.

The ruling castes of south India such as Reddysand Nairs held a status in society analogous to the Kshatriyas and Vaishyas of the north with the difference that religion did not sanctify themi.e. they were not accorded the status of Kshatriyas and Vaishyas by the Brahmins in the Brahmanical varna system. Historically, land-owning castes like the Reddys have belonged to the regal ruling classes and are analogous to the Kshatriyas of the Brahmanical society.

The Brahmins, on top of the hierarchical social order, viewed the ruling castes of the south like the Reddys, Nairs and Vellalars as sat-Shudras meaning shudras of "true being”. Sat-shudras are also known as clean shudras, upper shudras, pure or high-caste shudras This classification and the four-tier varna concept was never accepted by the ruling castes and the latter challenged the authority of the Brahmins who described them as shudras.

Reddys ruled many local dominions (samsthanams) until the British seized their power.The British appointed Reddys as zamindars and tax collectors. They were also enlisted in the British army. One of most prominent figures from the community during the British period is Uyyalawada Narasimha Reddy. He challenged the British and led an armed rebellion against the British East India company in 1846. He was finally captured and hanged in 1847. His uprising was one of the earlier rebellions against the British rule in India as it was 10 years before the famous Indian Rebellion of 1857.

Zamindaris

Some of the prominent Reddy zamindaris/samsthanams:
  • Amarchinta
  • Chundi
  • Domakonda
  • Gadwal – Raja Somasekhar Ananda Reddy or Somanadri
  • Munagala – Gurlapaty clan
  • Vardhamanapuram — Gona clan
  • Wanaparthy (Originally known as Sugur) – Founded by Veera Krishna Reddy

about reddy jana sangham

Reddys are an agrarian community to the rural areas and mainly interested in cultivating their own land.They had enough to sustain themselves and therefore,they were not much interested in modern education.With the national awakening and the struggle for freedom in the beginning of the century touching the Reddy community,they became aware of the need for education.

     As there were few facilities for Reddy students,the need for a hostel of their own for better food and cheaper accommodation was felt.The philanthropic Raja of Munagala Sri V.Venkata Ranga Rao was instrumental in the starting of a hostel on the initiative of Sri K.Koti Reddy,Sri P.H.Rama Reddy and Sri K.Subba Reddy in 1907.

This was named "Kondaveedu Hostel" by Sir C.R.Reddy after the capital of the old Reddy kingdom.Most of the Reddys who have occupied prominent positions later,have passed through this hostel.

    The first batch of graduates came out of this hostel in 1911.This Kondaveedu Hostel,which is a precursor of RJS survived till 1917.

    The three boarders of Kondaveedu Hostel, viz. Messers K.Koti Reddy,P.H.Rama Reddy and K.Subba Reddy returned from England after successful university studies.Their accomplishments gave a great impetus for the higher education among the young Reddys.The community in general and members of Kondaveedu Hostel in particular were not satisfied with a hostel alone.

They began to dream of a larger organization which could finance the education of the deserving poor students.To popularize the idea of a larger organization,local conferences of Reddys were initiated first in 1913 at Cuddalore and then later in Guntur in 1916 under the chairmanship of Sri K.Koti Reddy who had just returned from England.
 
    The third conference held in Nellore under the chairmanship of Raja of Munagala in 1917,was well attended from all over India.The Raja of Munagala in his Presidential Address strongly advocated the idea of a permanent organization as conceived in earlier conferences.
 
    The conference resolved for the formation of a permanent organization,although made little progress during the next 3 years.It received a new impetus at the next conference held in 1920 again in Nellore under the chairmanship of Sir C.R.Reddy In his Presidential Address,he emphasized the raising funds without which nothing tangible could be achieved

He eloquently pleaded for the collection of Rs 10 lakhs as a sound financial base and roused the enthusiasm to such a degree that all those present subscribed generously.This new born organization was named Reddy Jana Sangha(RJS).Immediately after the conference,the following office bearers of the Sangha were elected.


Raja of Munagala-President
Sir C.R.Reddy-Vice President
Sri K.Koti Reddy(Cuddapah)-Organizing Secretary
Sri E.V.Sundara Reddy(Madras)-Administrative Secretary
Rai Bahadur Venkat Reddy-Hyderabad  
Sri K.Adinarayana Reddy-Nellore
Sri Bezawada Chandrasekhar Reddy-Nellore
Sri Malladi Sathi Reddy-Godavari
Sri A.V.Bhasyam Reddy-Cuddalore


   The newly elected committee got Sangha registered on July 28th 1920 at Madras.It resolved to propagate,enlist life members,poshakas and raja-poshakas and devote all energy towards the collection of Rs 10 lakhs trust fund.The progress was rapid and remarkable for the next decade.
 
  Sir C.R.Reddy has not only exerted a vitalizing influence on the Sangha but kept a constant vigil over its finances.He ensured the financial stability and security for all time by constituting the Madras High Court as the custodian trustee.The Sangha will have powers of disposal by way of scholarships over the income earned as interest on the capital amount.

   After India's independence in 1947,the community has no doubt made some progress in education and other fields.But due to drought,cyclones and ceiling on agriculture holdings,the middle class Reddy families left villages and migrated to towns and cities,leaving behind many of the families who were illiterate and dependent on agriculture.The children of these people are now in DIRE need of education and financial help.

   After the formation of Andhra Pradesh in 1956,the office of RJS shifted to Hyderabad in 1957,but the Trust Money is retained with the Madras High Court.However,the Madras High Court transfers the interest amount to RJS Hyderbad,which is disbursed as scholarships to the deserving students of the Reddy community.
