Digavalli venkata Sivarao

14 February 1898 - 03 October 1992

Introduction
Mr. Sivarao, a lawyer by profession, writer and historian by his interest had done vast and memorable literary work. He was a known fighter for truth and honesty. His characteristic personal traits were sharp memory, straightforwardness and diligence. He was outspoken and upright with principles, honest in conduct and actions in professional, public and private life. Several historical facts and events were brought out by his research work and his articles were lucid and interesting. Even the titles of his articles generated curiosity to the readers. He never took advantage of his political and professional connections. He lived frugally and shunned pomp and show. Despite many requests and offers that came in his way as in the case of other freedom fighters, with humility he refused to be called as freedom fighter since he was a practicing lawyer and did not go to Jail. He shunned publicity and attending meetings.As a freedom fighter he did considerable work during Gandhiji’s Satyagraha movement knowing fully well sooner or later that he will be arrested, jailed and even beaten like so many others. He was ready to sacrifice his lucrative legal practice for the freedom of the country exposing his his family with wife and small children to the risk of resultant consequences. It was sheer providence that he escaped jail despite two sedition cases against him and his house searches. His contribution during freedom movement was valuable in the form of his educative writings exposing the British rule in India exploitation the people and economy of our country. The common man and the congress worker at grass root level were enlightened by his writings on political, economic, democratic and constitutional aspects. Whenever he finds time he immersed in his literary work. It is evident from his diary that his father left behind a huge burden of debt and a large alienated/ mortgaged property when Mr. Sivarao was 10 years old. He had no proper schooling till then. As a young boy he passed through severe financial hardship. Fortunately his brother in law Mr. Boddapati Purnahiah[1870- 1939] who was a Telegraph Master in 1910 at Calicut [ later Superintendent of Telegraphs] took him and his mother under his protection and put him in proper school. Though literary work was dear to his heart, he never neglected his profession. He was considered as legal luminary during his times. He had handled complicated and sensational cases of very prominent clients. Well known aspects of his literary work were his many articles and books which speak by themselves about his literary work. His other lesser known memorable work which he did before and after independence can be summed up in a few points before going into relevant particulars of these aspects: (1) Collected and collated important information relating to Madras and Andhra provinces for the Congress central command during Gandhiji’s freedom movements for independence. (2) Drafted several pamphlets, resolutions memoranda, lection manifestos, felicitation addresses (3) Translated circulars and important statutory instructions including bye laws and cooperative rules and regulations for co operative and the congress volunteers (4) worked in cooperative movement as Director for Andhra Cooperative Institue and also Secretary of Krishna District Cooperative Stores. As lawyer he appeared in legal cases defending workers of cooperative society including it Chairman, Singaraju Subbarao and others(5) Drafted memoranda and submitted to visiting commissions and committees like India League, Khosla Committee on River water project s etc (6) Confronted the erring officers in public and judicial domain (7) Mobilized public opinion and exposed the substandard literary output of Govt committees (8) Helped to publish books of two prominent celebrities of the time (9) Wrote introductions, forewords to some books (10) Dedicated some of his books to other (11) Gave few speeches in select meetings and conventions including on All India Radio at Madras and Bezawada Broadcasting stations (12) his reminiscences were recorded by the Govt for who is who in freedom movement. Right from the time he joined the Bezawada Bar in 1922 , besides legal practice his hobby was history and politics. He used to get lot of books from Ramamohan library and also consignments of books from Connemara Library Madras for many years.

Sivarao garu outlived most of his contemporaries [1898-1992]. With razor sharp memory he was able to speak with facts and figures and locate the required subject from out of many bundles of vast notes he gathered over years. He invariably took down notes simultaneously as he read a book. That had helped him in long run to write fresh articles with bibiliography even at advanced age. Despite failing eye sight he continued his literary work for a few years without cataract operation. When he was past 93, one day he read in the Times of India about the IOL implantation. Then he was convinced about its advantages over the conventional cataract operation and decided to undergo the procedure. His cataract operation was done in June 1991 at Anand in Gujarat when he was living in Madhya Pradesh. Thereafter he continued to read and write with sense of purpose and direction. He had vast source material at hand for writing articles. He was born on 14/02/1898 at Kakinada. He settled down in Vijayawada as lawyer from 1922. When his hearing was impaired in1965 stopped going to courts. His wife Kamala [d/o Budhiraju Murthyraju] died in 1978. He continued his chamber practice till 1980 and shifted to Hyderabad. He maintained a voluminous diary which he named it as “Family History and diary of chronological events”. Mr. Sivarao recorded dates of several events of pubic importance from 1815 to corroborate his grandfather’s personal events. Similarly he covered the timeline of his father and his own life time till 1992. The events during1929 (self rule declared) to 1947( independence achieved) covering salt Satyagraha and Civil Disobedience and Quit India movements in West Krishna District and Bezawada throw light on freedom fight and sacrifice of several people who had gone into oblivian. He incorporated in his diary special passages as ‘reminiscence’ of his favourite subjects like that of his parents, cultural life at Rajahmundry during his high school days from1910 to 1916 , Presidency college and Victoria Hostel in Madras from 1917 to 1922., Salt styagraha & Civil Disobedience movements in Krishna District of 1930s. Some of the inmates of Victoria hostel who were his contemporaries in different faculties were in touch with him throughout their life span. Mr. Advai Bapiraju B.A.(Hon), Basavaju Apparao B.A B.L , Dr. Dandu Subba Reddy M.D, Dr. Chaganti Suryanrayana Murthy MBBS, Dr. K. L. Rao M.Sc., Ph.D, Mr. Avinash Lingam Chettiar B.A { Philonthrophist of Coimbator}, Mr. M.Bhakthavatsalam[Ex CM of Tamil Nadu] , Mr. Koka Subbarao [Retired Chief Justice of India ] etc to recall a few. He continued his reading and writing till he died on 03/10/1992 at Bhopal. He literally breathed his last while reading Major Dirrom’s book “a narrative of the campaign in India which terminated the war with Tippusultan in 1792”.

History of Digavalli Family: Main portion of his write up “History of Digavalli family” is incorporated here in the first person [I/we] of Mr. Sivarao.
“From an old genealogical tree written on Kondapalli paper preserved in our family records, I could trace that the progenitor of our family was Sri Digavalli Yerram Raju garu and my paternal grand father Timmarazu Pantulu garu was his descendent of the sixth generation .Allowing thirty years per generation our family history goes back to the year 1626 when Golconda Sultans ruled the northern circars. My grand father mentioned in his Will dated 13.1.1856 that our family had got the Mirasi right of Collecting Lavazmal, a fee collected on the village affairs by the samprati karanam who was the head of a group of villages . We belong to the Aruvela Niyogi sect of Telugu Brahmins of Koundinya Sagotra Apasthambha Sootra of the Yajussakha of the Vedas. From our house name it can easily be understood that we originally belonged to Digavalli, a village which is situated near Nuzvidu town which is a taluq head quarters and also the seat of the Nuzvidu Zamindars in the Krishna District. A distant kinsman of ours still continues to act as Karanam of Digavalli village. The ancestors of my grand father settled in Koyyur a village near Digavalli. They owned lands in that village as well as in Ramanakkapeta and Bommuluru. On account of the failure of crops due to frequent draughts and need to maintain a big family and the necessity of spending heavy amounts for marriages and obsequies my grandfather’s father Ramalingam garu became indebted. Sri Narasimha Appa Rao the Nuziveedu Zamindar had lot of trouble with the corrupt members of the Machilipatnam Chief Council and was removed from the Zaminadari. Collector was appointed to advise the Zamindari. Narasimha Appa Rao fled to the forests in the Nuzividu and began to raid the villages around Nuzividu . He was ultimately allowed to stay in Nuzividu but died. The Estate was placed under the Court of Wards during the minority of successor and ultimately it was partitioned between two sons. Thus there was no peace or order for long time in that region.
My grandfather, Timmarazu garu who was born about the year 1794 studied in the village school for some time and after his upanayanamu he left for Ellore [present Eluru] town in 1807 where he studied for three years learnt English also and went to Rajahmundry to seek his fortune. Thimmaraju garu entered the services of the East India Company in 1811 as Assistant to English record keeper in the Court of the District Judge of Rajahmundry. Later in 1820 he was appointed as English Record Keeper at the Office of the Rajahmundry District Collector with head quarters at Kakinada. He held various posts in the court and also acted as Sadar Amin or native judge. While so, three former divisions under the Collectors of Kakinada and Mogaliturru and Rajhamundry were constituted into the single district of Rajahmundry in 1820 and Mr. G.M.C Robertson was appointed as the Collector of the new District. My grandfather thought that he will have a better prospects if he entered Revenue Dpt of the new District and requested Mr.Vileart the District Judge to recommend him to Mr. Robertson for a job in his office. He was accordingly appointed as the English Record Keeper in the Huzur Office Kakinada which was the head quarters of the Rajhamundry district.
In 1822 Thimmaraju garu was granted a big house site of 8640 sq. yards in Kakinada by Mr.Robertson in 1822. He was very diligent in his work and rose to be a Tahasildar by 1827. Mr.Austry, the then Collector was very kind to him. He had great influence with the Zamindars of the District. Besides building a house in the house site at Kakinada Thimmaraju garu built the great Temple of Sri Bhimeswara Swami. Two inscriptions of 1828 and 1831 in the temple mention this great act of piety. He was English Record Keeper in 1834-35. There is a file in A.P. State Archives about Timmarazu garu’s enquiry in the case against Khambam Narasingarao.
Thimmaraju garu was appointed as Sheristadar in the office of the Subcollector in-charge of Godavari Anicut and Dhawaleswaram from1847. He was appointed as Court of Wards manager of Pithapur Estate on the demise of Rao Surya rao garu in 1850. One K.Subbarayadu garu the father of Viresalingam pantulu garu worked under him 1851. Thimmaraju Pantulu garu was also appointed to act as the Huzur Sheristadar from 1852 which job he held till he retired in 1855
He died on 7.2.1856. His eldest son Venkata Siva Rao garu was 26 years old then. His second son Venkata Ratnam garu (my father) was then a boy of six years old. My paternal uncle Siva Rao garu was Dewan of Pithapur raja from 1813 for 18 years. He brought up my father and educated him, performed his upanayanam and marriage. My father entered the revenue department and after rising to the rank of a Deputy Tahasildar retired as a Sub-magistrate in 1904. He had one son and two daughters by his first wife and daughter and son (my self) by his second wife. My brother was employed as a Tahsildar when he was appointed at Court of Wards manager for Vuyyuru Zamindari. He retired as Dewan of Vuyyuru Raja in 1926. His first son was an advocate and his second son a health officer and died as a Director of Public Health in 1956.
Thus our family has been closely associated with the British Government during the days of the East India Company till transfer of power in 1947.
I was born in my ancestral house at Kakinada on 14the February 1898 when my father was a Sub-magistrate at Peddapur. My father was highly conscious of aristocratic traditions of our family and lived in a grand style though the pay he got was small. Ever since my paternal uncle died in 1892 my father was spending money without any restraint. He celebrated బాలసార and other functions on a lavish scale on many occasions. He would camp at కోటిపల్లి and other places of pilgrimage and feed Brahmins. He would invite Kuchipudi actors and ask them to present their యక్ష గానం and dramas including భామకలాపం. I came to know that he even invited పువ్వుల పాపాచలం, famous danseurs from Ellore. He spent money for completing the వాహనం కొట్లు in Bhimeswara Temple and celebrating Kalyanam every year for five days on a grand scale. He would also celebrate Navaratri puja, Pongal and other festivals in the same style. He employed a Brahmin for daily worship besides the casual cook and other servants. My father would give money freely to his sister and daughters and others. He actually gave away a house to his sister and eldest daughter in 1900 a s a gift valuing at Rs1200/-. This was recently (1980s) sold away for Rs one and half lakhs by a boy who was adopted by their descendents. My father was a Noble soul and was very liberal in his dealings with others. He was easily deceived by the people. His one weakness was to listen to the flattery with pleasure. The sycophants took full advantage of this weakness of his. Although he inherited larger properties and lands in various places he was interested to purchase new lands in Cheyyeru in Amalapuram taluq, wet and dry lands by borrowing large sums. He foolishly took over 12 acres offered as maintenance to his second daughter agreeing to pay Rs 12000. He became indebted to the extent of Rs34000/- by these two transactions besides other debts be had incurred from time to time. He had to approach creditors some of them were cruel money lenders. He mortgaged properties to the pressing creditors and pledged valuable jewelry to Marwadis to raise money to pay pressing creditors. He had to retire from service in 1904 two years before he attained the age of 55 on account of the fact his age was wrongly given to enable him to enter into Govt.service . My step brother Thimmaraju pantulu garu was then a Tahsildar. We all lived in our new house built on three house sites purchased for my parents and my self in Kovvuru. My father acted very honourably in his dealings with his creditors and discharged this debits by setting away all our house properties and were mortgaging the properties of my maternal grandfather”

His professional work as lawyer:
Sensational Municipal Defalcation cases:
Mr.Ayyedevara Kaleswara rao a very prominent lawyer was Chairman of Bezawada Municipal Council in 1923. He was well known Congress leader. Some of Bill Collectors who committed the fraud of appropriating the amounts paid for the water usage tried to implicate Mr. Kaleswarao in the fraud. A case filed against them in 1923 by the Municipal Council. Mr. Sivarao appeared on behalf of one of the Bill Collector at the request of ex chairman of the Muncipal Council Dr.Dhanwada Ramachanda Rao, M.A., M.D. His client pleaded ‘guilty’. In the proceeding of this case. Mr. Sivaro had exposed the whole fraud of the other Bill collectors thus vindicating the honour of Mr. Kaleswararao as chairman of municipal Council for which Mr. Kaleswararao presented his MLT reports to Mr. Sivarao. His client bill collector was given minimum punishment of 2 months jail while the remaining Bill Collectors who pleaded ‘not guilty’ were awarded rigorous imprisonment up to 2 years.

Action against an autocratic District Munsiff: In December 1932 Mr Nidmarthi Narasimham, District Munsiff notified 67 member of the Bezawada Bar on having entered into a nefarious conspiracy against him and prohibited them from entering into his office. Sivarao’s name was one among the 67 advocates. Mr. Sivarao prepared a memorandum jointly with Mr.Peddibhotla Veeraiah and Cherukupalli Venkatappaiah of this corrupt methods and behavior to the higher authority. Mr. Sivarao personally handed over the memorandum to the District Judge, Mr. Byers at Bezawada who used to carry a revolver in his suitcase. He afterwards got into trouble as a Judge in Madras High Court having shot at a pedestrian. Members of the Bar praised Mr. Sivarao for getting rid of the troublesome judicial officer. In another case where sub collector was holding court at irregular hours Mr. Sivarao as President of Bezawada Bar Association confronted him as given below.
His work as President of Bezawada Bar during 1947-48:
Mr Sivarao was elected as President of Bezawada Bar Association on 31/01/1947. During his tenure he had tackled several issues. With his unrelenting follow up he could solve several problems some of which were of chronic nature. The problem of scarcity of judicial stamps in those days was causing concern to the litigant public and pleaders’ clerks. He took up the matter with the Revenue and Govt officials. He solved two chronic issues during his tenure.There was no provision of employing a water boy during the summer for members of the Bar. He had to do lot of prolonged correspondence with the Madras High Court and at last the Govt has sanctioned one post of water boy during the summer. Another obnoxious problem of dumping night soil by the Municipal scavengers in the open play ground of Municipal High School near the Civil Courts. When the Bezawada Muncipal Health Officer was stubbornly refusing the fact of such dumping, Mr.Sivarao warned the Health officer and took up the with Director of Health services at State capital. They constructed an enclosure and ensured properly covering the pits. During his tenure as president he started a Forum of Bar Association for tackling issues concerning members of the Bar without waiting for the approval of Governing body.
Confronted an erring Judicial Officers:
When the Presiding judicial officers of the court adopting irregular practices of holding the court in the late hours and at their private bungalows and discourteous behavior towards the advocates and clients Mr. Sivarao courageously confronted them directly and also approached the higher authorities for redressal and transfer of the erring official. Once a joint Magistrate Mr. Jesudasan in April 1947 was discourteous to a senior member of the Bar, the District Collector was interviewed in person and apprised of the matter. In another instance, one Sub Collector Mr. R.C Joshi, an I C S Officer was holding irregular courts in late hours and at his residential bungalow. Mr. Sivarao as President of Bezawada Bar wrote Letter to the District Magistrate about the irregular timings of holding court adopted by the sub collector. His holding court at his bungalow and in chambers instead of holding it openly in the Court Hall and consequent inconvenience caused to the litigant public and the practicing advocates. The Sub collector wrote a letter to the President of Bar Association asking for cooperation and promising to cooperate and inviting that President to meet him to discuss the maters. On 25/09/1947 Mr. Sivarao met Mr. R.C. Joshi and discussed matters. A detailed minutes were prepared by the Secretary Bar association about the interview and placed in the records of the Bar association. When he went and met him to discussed all matters, R.C.Joshi said “nobody talked to me like this before”. Mr. Sivarao said boldly “that is because they have work before you every day and I have no work”. Mr. Sivarao further told Mr. Joshi that his court clerk was changing the dates of BRC posting at his pleasure. He promised to set right the irregularities. Mr. Joshi told Mr. Sivarao about his own difficulties especially about the interference by Congress leaders in administrative matters. Mr. Sivarao said “you belong to the ICS. You ought to know how to deal with these political leaders”. Keeping in view of Mr. Joshi’s problem Mr. Sivaro wrote a letter to the Editor , the Hindu on 20/01/1948 about the Congress ministers and leaders interfering with officials in discharging their duties. This public letter evoked resentment among the Congressmen. Mr. Konda Venkatappaiah complained about Mr. Sivarao’s charges. Mr. Sivaro spoke to Mr.Konda Venkatappaiah and explained Mr. Joshi’s interview. As president Mr. Sivarao presented a memorandum to Mr. T.Prakasam on behalf of Bar Association at a public meeting where the statue of Subhas Chandra Bose was unveiled by him. In this meeting there were clashes and police resorted to lathi charge. After this, the District Collector sent for Mr. Sivarao and his close friend and fellow advocate Mr C. Venkatappayya separately and asked them about the incident at the meeting where Sri T.Prakasam unveiled a statue of Subhas Chandra Bose whether there was a lathi charge etc. It seems both the victims and the Polilce Department suggested their name as impartial witnesses for this incidence of lathi charge. Mr. Sivarao's straightforward and impartial behaviour was well known. In another instance when the concerned lawyers complained to Mr. Sivaro that 1st class Judician Magistrate Mr. Gonella Krishna was holding court proceedings late into the evening Mr. Sivarao warned the the erring official. Mr Krishna promised to adjourn cases which were not taken up before 5 PM. In response to the letter of the Bar Council regarding the High Court Circular about disposal of cases it was referred to Peddibhotla Veerayya retired member of the Bar and his opinion was placed. The Commissioner of Tirupathi Devasthanam [చాగంటి సాంబయ్య పంతులు గారు, Deputy Collector] sent at his request a set of publications including inscriptions, archeological report and practical work in Telugu and Sanskrit and the same placed in Bar Association Library. First Independence Day was celebrated on a grand scale by the Bezawada Barunder the Presidentship of Mr. Sivarao. National Flag hoisting was done by Mr. Sivaro. Portraits of National leaders were unveiled by Political sufferers including Mushti Lakshminarayana and a pleader’s clerk. All political parties including the groups in the Congress were invited. Christians and Muslmans were also invited. Mr. Ali Raza Baig, subjudge remained in his chamber and did not come out even once! A grand tea party was arranged on a large scale with many courses of menu. The arrangements were done well as all members heartily cooperated. Court clerks and other officers participated. Mr. Sivarao wrote to the Hindu about the impropriety of continuing portraits of British Royal family in the Courts Halls even after independence and suggested a new coat of colour with our flags be exhibited in Court and offices. It was published on 07/08/1947. Mr. Sivaao prepared a Register of Lawyers who practiced in Bezawada up to date. The Forum suggested maintenance of a fair Register. This Register is preserved. In October 1947 the Forum of the Bar rescheduled as follows “in view of India having attained independence this meeting of the Bezawada Bar Association feels the necessity to have an opportunity for all members of the Bar and the Judicary to have Social Contacts including themselves and the public as far as practicable in view of the new set up in the country. The Forum resolved to celebrate and commemorate the inauguration of the Bar Association and suggested that the Governing Body may organize the celebrations of Bar day in December every year. The sub judges Mr. D.R.Venkatesh Iyer and B.Ch. Narayana murthi invited Mr. Sivarao for tea to meet the District Judge Mr. K.V.L. Narasimham to whom Mr. Sivarao did not give tea party on any of the three occasions he came to inspect the Courts. He felt about it and expressed it in his talk. In the party Mr. Sivarao and the District Judge had frank discussions on various subjects. In Dece 1947 the Bar Association Day was celebrated. Judicial officers in the District were invited. In 1951 at the advice of Dr. K.L Rao for submission of a memorandum to the visiting Khosla Committee to Bezawada regarding Krishna River Project , Mr. Sivarao drafted the Memorandum and presented to the Khosala Committee on behalf of the Bar association advocating the Nandi Konda project.
During the proceedings of a case Dr. T.V.S. Chalapathi rao vs Andhra Patrika News Paper at Bezawada in 1960s Mr. Sivarao appeared for Andhra Patrika. When the case was in trial stage assembly election had fallen due and Dr. Chalapathi rao had to contest the elections as Congress MLA. Congressmen attempted to bring pressure on Mr. Sivarao by deputing his friends, Dr. K. L. Rao and Gottipati Brahamaiah for compromise and withdrawal of case. Without his prior knowledge, a compromise petition was filed by the Plaintiff side and he was asked to sign it in the court as Defendant lawyer. He refused to sign it saying he had no instructions from his client. For him, his client’s interest is more important than succumbing to external influences.In another instance, once a presiding judge heckled him saying “I saw many arguments like this” Mr. Sivarao retaliated “your honour has seen many arguments, so also this court”
In cooperative movement in 1920s he actively took part. In 1933 he was nominated as Director of Andhra Cooperative Istitute. And later he also worked as Secretary of Krishna district cooperative Stores with Mr. Cherukpalli Venkatappaiah as its president. When Mr.Singaraju Subbarao was Chairman of Bezawada Coop Society there was a case involving him. Mr. Sivarao appeared on his behalf. In another case where Ayyanki Venkataramanyya garu was also involved in cooperative society case Mr. Sivarao appeared on the other side. He also defended a few freedom fighters in court cases during freedom fight. He defended Dr.Ghantasala Seetharama Sarma, Prof. N.G.Ranga during the course of the freedom movement. On 18/10/1931: Dr.Sarma’s residential qualification to be on the voters’ list is argued by Mr. Sivarao before the election officer. He argued that the period he spent in jail can be condoned as Gandhi Irwin pact remits sentences. On 24/11/1931: Mr Sivarao defended Professor N.G.Ranga in the Mis.Case under Sec 108 CRPC filed before the Joint Magistrate Mr.T.Sivasankar for his presidential speech etc in resettlement agitation.

Mr. Sivaro actively worked during Salt Satyagraha, Civil Disobedience and Quit India movements between 1930 to 1947. Mr. Sivarao had noted in his diary major events at national level along with local activity. He writes in his diary “I was restless with the civil disobedience movement that was in the offing after declaration of Independence in Lahore Congress.” In 1924 Mr. ఆయ్యదేవర కాళేశ్వర రావు గారు asked him to write a book on South Africa and gave him a book on South Africa in the series of Story of Nations and encouraged and encouraged him to write. He nominated Sivarago as a member of విజ్ఞాన చంద్రికా మండలి. In 1926 Mr. Sivarao’s friend Cherukupalli Venkatapapayya wrote from Madras a post card “ Sivarao C/o B.Purnaiah, Superintendent of Telegraphs, Bezawada” the card was wrongly delivered to the Superintend of Police and the Telegraph department suspected that Mr. Purnaia garu was involving in civil disobedience movement and suspended him. After police enquiry they revoked suspension.

During the freedom movement Mr. Sivarao , as a lawyer was acting as amicus curie with the permission of the court for many prominent congress leaders who were arrested and produced in the court as respondents as in the case of Gampalagudem Kumar Raja and Dr. Ghantasala Sarma garu.

University gave a talk on A I R about Yenugula Veeraswamayya gari Kasi yatra charitra and said that 1941 Edition of Mr. Sivarao is being translated into English. Mr. Sivarao did lot of original work in bringing out the 3rd Edition of this book in 194. 1st Edition of 1838 and second of 1860 contained archaic and quaint Tamil-Telugu dialectic words and had no punctuations nor any map of journey.
