Telangana Movement and the Banjaras

The historical struggle of Telangana for a separate statehood is more than a five decade old demand. Andhra Pradesh (A.P) is the fifth largest state in the Indian Union. The twenty three districts of the state are generally divided into three geographical regions known as Coastal Andhra, Rayalaseema and Telangana. Geographically, resourceful Telangana is the largest region of the state, covering 41.47% of its total area and inhabited by 40.54% of state population. It contributes more than 50% to the state revenue. Under Nizam’s rule it was the biggest and the wealthiest princely states in India, with the history of autocratic overlordism. During the Telangana Armed Struggle (TAS-1946-1951) the process of localization of history was projected through the Mulki agitation in 1952 and asserted like “Idli, Sambar eating Madarasis to leave the positions of authorities to Telanganites and go back to their regions. The coastal Andhra and Rayalaseema regions were part of the former Madras Presidency until 1st October 1953 when the state of Andhra was created. Telangana was a part of former Hyderabad princely state. As a matter of fact both the regions experienced deferential historical trajectories. Telangana existed as an independent State during the period 1952-56. On 1st November 1956 Hyderabad state was trifurcated and Telangana was merged with the Andhra State to form the present state of A.P with the city of Hyderabad as its capital. It happened with the political manipulations, disregard of State Reorganization Commission (SRC) and the wishes of people of Telangana. 

      Sayed Fazl Ali Commission better known as State Reorganization Commission (SRC-1955) carefully examined the peculiar historical experiences of both regions of Andhra and Telangana. The report Para 386 reads:

“After Taking all these facts into consideration, we have come to the conclusion that it will be in the interests of Andhra as well as Telangana if, for the present, the Telangana area is constituted into a separate State, ‘which may be known as the Hyderabad State, with provision for its unification with Andhra after the general elections likely to be held in or about 1961, if by a two third majority the legislature of the residuary Hyderabad state expresses it self in favour of  such unification”.

The SRC cautioned the nation against the danger involving in reorganizing the Indian State solely on linguistic considerations.

“To reject the theory of ‘one language one state’ which is neither justified on grounds of linguistic homogeneity, because there can be more than one state speaking the same language without offending the linguistic principle, nor practicable, since different language groups, including the vast Hindi speaking population of the Indian Union, cannot always be consolidated to form distinct linguistic unit” (Para, 163).

It was also endorsed by the father of Indian constitution Dr. B.R. Ambedkar and he favoured smaller states. He proposed unilingual States. ‘The formula is one State, one language but not one language, one State’. It means a people speaking one language may be cut up into many States as is done in other parts of the world depend upon: the requirements of efficient administration, the needs of the different areas, the sentiments of the different areas, and the proportion between the majority and minority. Even the smaller states facilitate a greater voice to the various minority groups. In his views the formation of linguistic provinces means “handing over of Swaraj to a communal majority (Castes). In his view linguism is another name of caste communalism. For instance, he takes the example of Andhra in which two major communities Reddys and Kammas spreading over the linguistic area, holds property and political power. The depressed classes would remain as the subordinated class to these linguistic ruling castes. To break that monopoly, Andhra Pradesh bifurcation is imperative.

Not only that, SRC even cautioned that Telangana may become an internal-colony:

“One of the principle causes of opposition to Vishalandhra also seems to the apprehensions felt by the educationally backward people of Telangana that they may be swamped and exploited by the more advanced people of the coastal area. The real fear of the people of Telangana is that if they join Andhra they will be unequally placed in relation to the people of Andhra and this partnership the major partner will derive all the advantages immediately while Telangana itself may be converted in to a colony by the enterprising Andhras” (378).

      Even Jawaharlal Nehru ridiculed the idea of merging Telangana with Andhra State hearing a ‘tint in expansionist imperialism’ (Deccan Chronicle, March 6, 1956). Later he compared with merger with matrimonial alliance having ‘provisions for divorce’ if the partners in the alliance can not get on well. SRC favouring separate Telangana led to an intensive lobby by Visalandhra advocates. Despite all these cautions Hyderabad was trifurcated on Telangana region was merged with Andhra State. And rest of the part were merged in Bombay and Mysore provinces. It shows that the negligence shown by the leadership of that time in spite the state reorganization commissions warning to be not merged Telangana with Andhra State. It favoured Telangana with its nine districts as an independent state. Its integration with then existing Andhra state could be ascertained around 1961 if 2/3 majority of Hyderabad legislature thought it politically advisable.

      In spite apprehension, ‘Gentlemen Agreement’ facilitated unification of both the states. The problem started when the agreement was soon bypassed, very same day of its enforcement, in Andhra Pradesh state, when Sanjeeva Reddy, the first Chief Minister of A P refused to name any Telangana Minister as Deputy C.M saying that the post is like “the unwanted sixth finger of the hand.” At the same time started the influx of Andhra people in to Telangana especially to Hyderabad city. It created its own social tensions. Subsequently there were other agreements like All Party Accord, Six-point Formula, Five-point Formula, Eight-point Formula, G.O-36, G.O-610 etc. But all were violated. What state reorganization commission feared of Telangana being converted in to a colony became reality in the subsequent years.

      What Telangana leaders feared about to be exploited became apparent in the United State. After 12 years of formation of Andhra Pradesh exploded sub-regional agitation in 1969 known as Jai Telangana movement. That agitation was started with genuine grievances of the students with denial of admissions and employment to the ‘sons of soil’. This agitation rejected both region and language as the basis of political reorganization, also rejected ‘cultural uniformity’ and historical identity as only creation of a political existence. Water distribution through irrigation projects is highly contested issue. The proposed plans by Hyderabad state for constructing irrigation during its short span of existence in 1952-56 was abandoned by the successive Andhra Pradesh state. South Indian major rivers, Krishna and Godavari enter in Telangana from western direction and travel hundreds of kilo meters in the region. But no efforts had been made by the state government to harness it to the advantage of Telangana. All major dams are situated in border areas of Telangana and water goes to the other regions. Telangana has encircled by two major rivers of South India, Krishna and Godavari. Bachavat tribunal has awarded 13% water sharing to coastal Andhra sub-region, 68.5% to Telangana and 17.68% to Rayalaseema out of that coastal Andhra gets 74.25%, 18.20% Telangana and the rest of the water goes to Rayalaseema from the Krishna River. Telangana had denied its legitimate share. Consequently the formers in Telangana dependent mostly on well irrigation which is becoming expensive. Because of governments negligence the area irrigated under tanks has declined from 4, 47,236 hectares, in 1956 to 2, 69,492 in 2001, the growth is 39.7%.

      There was violation of Mulki Rules (Domicile Rule) and ‘non Mulkis’ were employed in Telangana Region. Mulki rules dates back to 1328 (1919) fasli, when Nizam VII promulgated Hyderabad civil services regulation act to ensure fair share to the locals in government services. Rule 39 prescribed that requirement of residence to be entitled to a job in government on par with natural born subjects. Employment act prescribed 15 years period for the employment of non-Mulkis in Telangana. Present 15 lakhs jobs are in government and government funded offices and establishments. Based on population at least 40% jobs should have gone to the job seekers of Telangana i.e. at least 6 lakhs, but less than 3 lakhs are employed from this region. As a result time to time Telangana people are demanding and sacrificing their lives for separate Telangana state. For example, during Telangana Agitation of 1969-71, more that 400 students were killed in police firings. Many more missing cases were reported. With this frustration Telangana youth joined Naxalite movement, after central government failed to carve a separate state. In all these developments most extreme suffers are the lower caste people of the region, especially, the S.Cs, STs and the artisan castes. Among the S.Ts, Banjaras are also suffering extremely in Telangana region.  

Banjaras in Telangana

      The Banjaras are the largest Scheduled Tribe group in A.P inhabited throughout the State. They are known as Lambadas in Telangana region and Sugalis in Andhra and Rayalaseema regions. Total S.T population of A.P according to 1991 census, was 41, 99,481 out of out of which 16, 41,897 are Lambadas. Out of which 13, 89,180 are inhabited in Telangana region alone and remaining 2, 52,717 are living in Andhra and Rayalaseema regions. Banjara population in 1911, in Telangana was mere 1, 25,849. It is generally recorded that the Banjaras originally have come to the south with the Moghul army. Highly fascinated by their spirit of adventure and honesty, the Moghul kings appointed many of them for the supply of food grains to their army. As the Deccan (Hyderabad) was devoid of a single navigable river, and had no roads that admit of wheeled traffic, the whole of the extensive intercourse is carried on by laden bullocks, the property of the Banjaras. Rathods and Vadtiyas or Badtiyas are chiefly found in Hyderabad Deccan, the Rathods occupying the Marathwada districts and Badtiyas abounding in Telangana in the Hyderabad state of Nizam. Both these clans are said to have come to the Deccan with Asaf jah, the Vazir of Shah Jahan, who campaigned against Bijapur around 1630. Later they secure from him the certain prescriptive rights. In subsequent periods they settled down in the post-independence India wherever they were.

      But, subsequently they were notified criminal tribes and they were de-notified under the law Minisitership of Dr. Ambedkar. Banjaras in Telangana have been very active part of different movements. It was told that the famous Telangana Armed Struggle was started, when a land lord was killed by a Lambada woman. In subsequent period due to loss of control over economy, politics and culture Lambadas were completely marginalised. They were forced to the subsistence level along with other communities. There was a huge dislocation of livelihood. As a result especially, women in this region became more vulnerable. There were women trafficking reported among the Banjaras in the region. This is coupled with Hinduisation and entry of Dowry has been destroying the future of girl child. Now she has become a liability. As a result Banjara girls are forced to sell in the market. One such incident was noticed by The National Human Rights Commission (NHRC). The commission took suo motu cognisance of a news item published in the Hindu of 22 January 2000 which highlighted the suffering of women of the Lambada Tribe of Telangana Region in Andhra Pradesh. It was reported that, in a number of instances, they were being compelled by their circumstances either to sell or to kill their infant girls soon after birth. Unfortunately, in most of such cases, poverty and illiteracy were the main cause for the giving-up of the child. Because of drought and non availability of livelihood options Telangana witnesses a huge out migration.  Only Mahabubnagar district witnesses 15lakh distress migration, which known as ‘Palamur Labour.’ Among them the Banjaras out number other communities. Even the recent development pattern led by the concept of Special Economic Zones (SEZs) has been working against the interests of depressed communities. One such SEZ, by name Polepally SEZ had come up in Mahabubnagar district. It has displaced four villages and several Banajara tandas. The acquired land belong to Madiagas and Banjaras. So far nearly fifty people have died after losing their lands of 2000 acres and livelihood. In this way destruction of livelihood in a mass level is going on. Telangana movement aims to restore their livelihoods and dignity also. It was reported in the local news paper is that when an old women died there was land left to bury her. However, successive governments failed to address the concerns of the sub region rather the ruling parties have actually widened the gap among the three sub regions. Since past one decade Telangana has been witnessing large scale farmer suicides driven by agrarian distress. The state government has shown scant regards to this human tragedy.

      Time to time, the arriving at a political solution, the state government continues to treat it as a law and order problem. Historically backward, culturally subjugated, economically deprived Telanganaites are no more ready to with stand decades of injustice that they have faced. Everyone must remember one thing is that even though SRC recommended Telangana that was not created. Originally 14 states were created in partial implementation of the report. After that 14 new states were created without SRC recommendation. In these cases only Telangana misses out why? When Telangana turn comes there is huge hue and cry as if Telangana people are demanding a separate country. Here every democratic minded person must thing about the amount of repressed might have unleashed on the Telangana agitators. And the real sufferers are our people. Creation of a state according to article 3, of India Constitution is a very simple process of passing resolution in the Parliament by a simple majority. Since past one week, People from all the sections of Telangana are taking active part in the movement and protesting in different ways. Osmania University students irrespective of their political affiliations have come together and launched the Joint Action committee. From past few days they are carrying forward the movement successfully in spite of huge repression from state government. In solidarity with Osmania students, people from all the sections including employees, academicians, intellectuals, social activist, some political parties like TRS, several unions such as, lawyers, Doctors, Teachers, bank employees, Auto drivers, Washer-man community, barbers community, small scale business man, employees unions, state government employees, some elected representatives, cultural activists voluntarily came to the streets. Government had to order to close down the educational institutions in order to make the students inactive.     

      The latest phase of Telangana movement which is going on in Telangana since one month is not a sudden development but is an out burst accumulated over a period of fifty years. Large number of Banjaras are coming out of their tandas and protesting in different palaces. We heard about the death of several Banjara youth either in police lathi-charges or they themselves committing suicides in despair by hoping that that would mount on the central government to speed up the process of Telangana. Telangana movement is not against Andhra and Rayalaseema people, but only it is against the upper caste/class exploiters of Telangana resources. Only handfuls of vested interests are opposing formation of Telangana not by the common people, because they would lose nothing. Rather it would beneficial to them by many ways. The Telangana state will benefit majority lower castes in the region. A democratic and social Telangana is the dream of SCs/STs/OBCs and Minority groups of Telangana. It will offer a permanent solution to the much vexed S.C sub-categorisation issue in the state. They will have control over their resources and lives. Formation of Telangana will create new employment and political opportunities to both the regions. As the beneficiaries of the reservations Banjaras in both the regions will be able to access it properly.  It is the moral responsibility of Banjaras all over the world to extend their heartfelt moral support to the ongoing democratic movement of Telangana. Separate Telangana only will liberate the suffering Banjaras and other people from socio-economic exploitation, cultural humiliation and political subjugation. It is a fight for getting liberated from internal-colonialism of Andhra ruling castes. If Telangana is formed it will be the 14th largest state geographically, even larger than the West Bengal.

Why don't we use Orkut, Facebook to attract our Goaars towards our website BanjaraTimes.com

Hello sir,

Why don't we establish a broad linkage of the Goaar Community. I realise that we, as a community, are spread worldwide. So is there any way we could spread the existence of this website via the internet?

I suggest we make it more simple and attractive with a background score that defines our culture, our colors, our villages etc. and may be we can do away  with the existing profile.

I have been receiving good responses to the mail I addressed to you earlier. I am eager to expand our community link.

Why don't we use orkut, facebook and other social networking sites. Form communities and groups. In this way it will attract our Goaars to your website.

It is a fact that we have millions of users of orkut and facebook. I am sure there are many Goaars there but who don't know that your website exists.

So I suggest you take up measures to spread this message via other networks. The more Goaars together the more loud our voice shall be heard.

I am deeply interested in promoting and propogating our culture, values, food, tradition, dress etc. to the entire world.

Born on 26/11 in the shadow of terror

A heart touching story of a Newborn Goaar Baby: Goli Chavan

Mumbai, November 22, 2009 (Neeta Kolhatkar/DNA): It was not without reason that one-year-old Goli Chavan was given a dramatic name. While most newborns arrive in the world to a warm welcome and swaddled sleep, she had to lie on the floor of Cama Hospital next to her mother as bullets flew around the labour ward.

Her mother, Viju Chavan, had gone into labour on the night of 26/11 around the time Ajmal Kasab and his terror team started firing randomly inside the hospital. The terrorists were aiming at slaughtering or grabbing as many hostages as they could. Had it not been for the immense courage and presence of mind shown by the hospital staff and the mother herself, we would not be getting set to celebrate Goli's first birthday four days from now.
"Every day we send up a prayer thanking God for saving us that fateful night of 26/11 and giving us this gift, our daughter," Viju Chavan tells The Mag, remembering that horrific night.

Goli of course has another, more proper name: Tejaswini. But her parents say that they prefer to call her by a name that reminds them of the fact that she was born in the shadow of terror and is a symbol of human endurance.

Survival instinct: The story of that night the Chavans lived through reads like an edge-of-the-seat thriller. Shyamu Laxman Chavan, a dock worker at Sassoon Docks, and his wife Viju have an older son who is now six years old. When Viju became pregnant for the second time, the family had rejoiced. Around 8pm on November 26 last year, Viju started feeling the contractions. Her husband and son rushed with her to Cama Hospital for the delivery.

"At 8.30 pm we were inside the hospital. We waited for half an hour to complete the admission procedure. Everything was quiet. I took Viju to the labour ward when she complained of pain. They asked us to wait. In the meanwhile, the gynaecologist gave me a prescription and asked me to get some medicines," recalls Shyamu.

On his way down to the pharmacy Shyamu saw people running in panic. He also saw a guard lying in a pool of blood. Even then, Shyamu and other visitors to the hospital had no clue that the hospital was under a terror attack.

"The liftman came and rounded us up with his baton. He gave us five minutes to clear out of the ward," says Shyamu. But something told him they were all better off indoors.

Shyamu is blessed with a strong physique -- he exercises in the morning and his work in the docks keeps him fit. Without any idea of what the crisis was about, he used his strength to herd people into the hospital interiors. He had a gut feeling this was different from anything he had experienced.

"We saw people running into the hospital from CST. I realised that this was not an underworld gun-battle because they fight it out on the streets," he recalls.

Wardboy's courage: In sheer panic, the relatives and those seeking shelter in the hospital began banging on the doors of the labour ward. Men are never allowed into hospital maternity wards but these were exceptional circumstances.

"We had learnt of the terror siege by then but we knew that most of the patients and relatives had no clue," recalls Jayshree Kurdhunkar, who was a nurse on duty that night.

Viju went into labour amidst the firing and was moved to the delivery room. She knew by then that death was waiting outside the door, and bit back cries of agony as she delivered her child, so that the sound would not alert the terrorists.

"No amount of resolve can alleviate labour pain but I did not shout or scream. I prayed that my baby be born soon and sure enough Goli's birth was very smooth," says Viju.

Shyamu has a special word of appreciation for the wardboy Dhondu Raghunath Parab. Parab inspired the people in the ward to face the worst and not panic.

"I will never forget Parab's words. They still ring in my ears. He said that the firing was so intense that it could easily kill all of us, but instead of just waiting for sure death why not do something to protect our families. He got us to gather the heavy metal equipment lying around the ward and pile them at the door. We all stood behind the barricade, ready to jump at the terrorists if they pushed their way in," recounts Shyamu.

Parab now gets misty-eyed when he is told by The Mag that Goli's parents remember him fondly and in admiration. He is just a contract worker at the hospital, but that did not dull his sense of duty towards the patients.

"We were informed that there were terrorists on our premises. So I thought the best way to keep panic at bay was to involve the patients and relatives in some operation. I simply told them we were in a situation where death seemed probable, but that we should not die in vain. We should at least die saving the women and children," says Parab.

Better than a medal: The minute Goli was born, she was quickly cleaned and put down on the floor alongside her mother. "There was a window in the delivery room and bullets could easily fly in. So we all huddled under the bed," says midwife Gohil.

The air finally cleared around 2.30am, almost four hours after Goli's birth. The family went home with their newborn child, grateful for the exemplary courage shown by the hospital staff. Shyamu and Viju wrote a letter of appreciation to the hospital staff. The Chavans are Banjaras from Karnataka, and the letter is in Kannada, which is Greek to Parab. But it is still a prized article for him.

"I am touched that the parents wrote us a personal letter. We cannot read Kannada, so we got our friends to translate it for us. Their kind words mean more to us than any medal," he says.

The staff bursts out laughing when they are told that the baby is named Goli. They cannot believe that the couple had taken so seriously a joke they had cracked during the delivery.

"Really? They have named her Goli? Aho, the doctors had told Viju jokingly 'Tumhi ya mulila goli mhana karan te golyanchya varshav madhe janmala aleli (call her goli because she was born in the midst of gunshots)," says Kurdhunkar.

The Chavans meanwhile are looking forward to celebrating the first birthday of their daughter with a cake-and-chivda party for the neighbours. "We want to mark the day our jewel arrived in this world. We want to share this moment with all the children around us," says Viju.
