Telangana Armed Struggle and Identity Formations of Bahujans:A Historical Perspective

Dr. Chalamalla Venkateshwarlu

摘要(Abstract):

The formation of a Bahujan identity is basically seen in the form of caste consciousness among lower caste groups, who are also the integral part of the Bahujans (productive caste groups). The caste consciousness among the Bahujans in Telangana region is low because of their continuous oppression in their socio-cultural, economic and political dimensions, since historical times. Most of the Bahujan leaders emerged in the region during the period of Telangana Armed Struggle as their identity consciousness was rooted in that movement. But the history has not recognized the Bahujans and their identity movements as that was recorded by the so-called upper castes elite-intellectuals. In the process of this struggle, Bahujans have played a key role and made numerous sacrifices. Their heroic resistance and sufferings in that movement have not properly recorded in the history. However, the Bahujans themselves have tried to produce their literature on diversified aspects of their communities with an aim of articulating their own interests and identities. This paper is an attempt to analyze the role of Bahujans in Telangana Armed Struggle that reflected their identity in historical context. It examines such identity formations in the former Nizam state, which is broadly the present Telangana. It also covers the process of Bahujan identity movements and their formations in the Telangana armed struggle.
