Komaram Bheem Biography in Telugu


Komaram Bheem (22 October 1901 – 27 October 1940) was a tribal leader who fought against the Asaf Jahi Dynasty for the liberation of Hyderabad. Komaram Bheem openly fought against the ruling Nizam government in a guerrilla campaign. He defied courts, laws, and any other form of Nizam authority, living off the sustenance of the forest. He took up arms against Nizam Nawab's soldiers, and fought Babi Jhari until his last breath. His life history was written originally by the comrade leader of Telangana Rebellion, Puchalapalli Sundariah.
Life
Bheem was born into a family of Gond Tribals (Koitur) in the forests of Komaram Bheem district in the state of Telangana, then under rule of Nizam. He was not exposed to the outside world and did not have any formal education. Komaram Bheem was barely 15 years when his father was killed by forest officials for asserting Adivasis’ rights. After the death of his father, Bheem's family migrated to Surdhapur village
Mypathi Arun Kumar in his book narrates, “Bheem grew up listening to stories of exploitation of Gond and Kolam Adivasis by Janglaat Police, businessmen, and zamindars. In order to survive, Bheem kept moving from one place to other trying to protect himself from exploitation of businessmen and extortion of officials. Crops produced after Podu farming, were taken away by Nizam officials, Janglaats arguing that the land was theirs. They’d cut fingers of Adivasi children, accusing them of illegaly cutting down trees. Tax were collected forcefully, otherwise false cases were registered. After being left with nothing in hand from farming, people had started moving out of their villages. In such situation, his father was killed by forest officials for asserting Adivasis’ rights. Bheem was agitated by murder of his father and after father’s death, his family moved from Sankepalli to Sardapur.”
He gave the slogan of "Jal, Jungle, zameen" (Water, Forest, Land). By definition, it means that the people who live in forests should have rights on all the resources of the forest.
Legacy
Komaram Bheem is regarded as a deity (or pen in Gondi) among Gond Adivasi community and Gonds observe Bheem’s death anniversary every year on Aswayuja Powrnami, where an event is organized at Jodeghat to commemorate his life and struggle[9]. In 2011 it was announced that a statue of Bheem would be installed in Tank Bund, which was later unveiled on February 2, 2012.
