Before the independence movement in India, Dalits began to work in Railways and Military as employees, mixed with the British and were made aware of their bright in the society. The chief originators of this awareness and change in the Backward communities are Bhagyareddy Yarma, M.L. Adeyya, Arige Ramaswamy, S.Muthayya, B. Shyam sundar, B.S. Venkata Rao, Rajaram Bhole, T.V.Narayana, Lakshmayya, S.Babayya, RR.Venkataswamy, Subedar Sayanna, Bandeli Chitharayya, Pesari veeranna and others.

Bal Mukund, vaman Nayak, Lalji Meghji, Aghornath, Baji, Krishnarao and ethers helped and encouraged the movement of dalits.
An activist called Balreddy conducted a school for dalits in 1934. As justice K. Punnayya said, even before Dr. BR. Ambedkar came into the scene, Bhagyareddy started working for the uplift ment of dal¬its in 1917 itself, and not only because famous nation wide but won the praises of Gandhiji and Sarojini Naidu. Bhagya reddy Varma served hard to awaken the untouchables towards their flight at the state level before Gandhi and Ambedkar started working for that cause. He also conducted the ‘Buddha Jayanti’ in 1913, long before Ambedkar did so.
‘Madari Bagayya’ was the original name of Bhagyareddy Varma. He believed that they were the original early native tribes of India and they were called as Redus or Reddys, which was why he changed his name to Bhagyareddy. Varma was the title given to him by Arya samaj. Thus his name had come ‘Bhagyareddy Varma’. He was bom in a backward community family on 22, May 1888 and died in 1939. He started propagating the name of ‘Adi-Hindu’ for Dalits at the national level and the name of. ‘Adi-Andhras’ at the state level. Because of his movement, the government started calling the Mala, Madiga, Dhed, Chamar and other communities (They were considered as untouchables then)- as Adi Hindus from the 1931 census.
On 4th and 5th November 1917, a ‘Panchama’ conference was held at Bejawada under the leader¬ship of Bhagyareddy Varma, the name of which, he changed to Adi-Andhra conference. Unnava Lakshmi narayana, who attended to it was inspired by it, and wrote the famous Telugu novel ‘Malapalli’. A ‘Adi Hindu volunteer force’ started working as early as 1906 in Hyderabad, led by Varma. It contained 35 sincere volunteers. They worked with other communities of Hindus for the abolition of untouchability and for the upliftment of untouchable communities. During cholera and other such epidemics in Hyderabad, they volunteered to create people who died with the diseases. A voluntary service organisa¬tion called ‘swastik dal’ was formed in 1912 by them, and they receive special praise from the Nizam government for their activities and services Bhagyareddy Varma founded an organisation called ‘Jaganmitra Mandali, encouraged Mala Jangas and Haridasus to sing Harikathas and con¬duct other cultural programmes. During those times, he encouraged people of all communities to sit and eat together (which was otherwise prohibited).
Varma also formed the ‘Adi-Hindu Social Service League’ in 1911 and as its founding secretary organised Adi-Hindu conferences between 1921 and 24 during which he worked hard to remove the inferiority complex of backward castes and communities and to uplift their conditions. He founded pri-mary schools at Isamiya Bazar and Lingampally of Hyderabad in 1910 as a part of Jaganmitra Mandali activities. Later, Their number reached to 26 including the Adi-Hindu school founded at Secunderabad by M.L.Adeyya. In 1934, The Nizam government took over the administration of these schools, following their request.
In 1911, the ‘Jaganmitra Mandali’ transformed into ‘Manya Sangham’, which took up activities to abolish child marriages, Devadasi and Jogini practices, Bhagyareddy Varma also formed another soci¬ety called ‘Devadasi Abolishment society’, while Varma was the executive secretary of Manyasangham, Valtati Seshayya was its President, H.S. Venkatarao was Vice President and JS Muthaiah was its secretary.
An English monthly named ‘The Panchama’ was inaugurated on 31 December, 1918 with JS Muthaiah as its editor. The ‘Adi-Hindu social conference’ was held on 24, 30, 31 March 1922, under the leadership of M.L. Adeyya during which the ‘Manyasangham’ again transformed into ‘Adi- Hindu Social League’. In it, M.L. Adeyya become its president of Secunderabad branch.
B.S. Venkata Rao, who had become famous as the ‘Hyderabad Amb.edkar, founded the ‘Adi- Dravida society’ in 1922. He was inspired by the movements of Jyothi Rao Phule, his main goal was the abolition of the practice of Devadasi system. He was helped by Medari Govindarajulu and Venkataswamy.
In 1925, Bhagyareddy Varma conducted many meetings in the Adi-Hindu regions of Hyderabad to awaken the people, under the leadership of subedar sayanna (Madiga), who was famous as Arundhati (communiity) leader.
A number of movements were held in Secunderabad, led by N.R.Babayya to demand for equal rights to Madigas along with Mala community. Mudigonda Lakshmayya and others supported them.
M.L. Adeyya, who was called as the Bhishma of Dalit communities, was the president of Adi-Hindu Mahasabha and B.S. Venkat Rao formed a Adi-Hindu library with it. Bhagyareddy, Mallesh Rao, chitharayya, Arige Ramaswamy and Balaramayya propagated against the practice of ani¬mal sacrifices and founded a society called ‘compassion for animals’ conference.
In the first Andhra Mahasabha held at Jogipet in 1930, Bhagyareddy Varma proposed two resolu¬tions requesting the government to take action for the abolition of untouchability and for instructor to provide education to Adi Hindus.
In 1931, Varma founded the ‘Bhagyanagar’ magazine at Hyderabad, which changed into the ‘Adi-Hindu’ magazine by 1931. While the second Andhra Mahasabha conference was held at Devarakonda in 1931, the Adi-Hindu separate con¬ference was also held under the presidentship of Bandela chitharayya. In 1931, the Dalits of the vil¬lage Banigellapadu, Madhira Taluq revolted against bonded labour,
To the third Andhra Mahasabha held at kham- mam in 1934, Bhagyareddy Varma sent a message which said “some people keep dogs and cats in their houses as pets, touch and kiss them, while they shout at a fellow human being calling him untouchable and remove him from their path. Today, the reformist flow is going towards Adi-Hindus. We do not ask to sit at your table and eat. We demand that you’abolish the inhuman practice of untouchability and respect us as you respect other communities”.
In 1937, a society called ‘Jambavarna sevasamiti’ was formed for the awareness of Arundhateeya community. Another conference was held under the leadership of Guntimalla Ramappa, leader of.Matanga Mahasabha.
In fact, the word ‘Harijan’ was not coined by Gandhiji as many believe. In the Gujarati edition of ‘Navajivan’magazine, the word ‘untouchable’ used to appear a lot of times. One reader complained that it hurt the feelings of those communities and to change it to another Word. Then Gandhiji asked the readers to suggest the word themselves and a number of words were suggested. Among them, Gandhiji liked the word ‘Harijan’ most and started using it instead of untouchable. In 1934, during Gandhiji visit to Hyderabad, a person called pisari veeranna objected to the usage of the word Harijan. He said that those communities were Adi-Hindus. But, the word Harijan stuck and it continued to be used. At present, the word ‘Dalit’ is being used to denote backward communities.
The 43 branches of Adi Hindus met under the leadership of Bhagya Reddy Varma and under the presidentship of B.S. Venkat Rao on 19th December, 1937 to discuss the reforms of Majlis Ekhwanin. In it, Bhagyareddy Varma spoke on the un official bill, formed by Kasinatha Rao Vaidya for the expansion of Hyderabad state, and passed a resolution which said that separate 10 constituencies should by allotted to represent the Adi-Hindus. Later on Ambedkar fought for the allottment of Reserved con¬stituencies to see which might have originated from Varma’s ideals.
The death of Bhagyareddy Varma in 1939 was a big flow to the Dalit movement in Telangana. Later on, it was continued by T.V. Narayana and others in Telangana.
Takkella Venkayya, who fought in the second world war in Europe, came back to Hyderabad and started working against the atrocities faced by Dalits in Hyderabad. V. Shyamsundar, who acted as the representative of Nizam government in the unit¬ed nations wrote a book called ‘They Burn’. He gave details of the conditions of Dalits in Hyderabad in those days.
