This is the true story of Jangampalle, one among the 10167 villages in the Telangana heartland which witnessed remarkable changes during the past six to seven decades. Independence transformed the feudal slumbering society in Telangana which first witnessed the ‘razakar’ atrocities followed by convulsions of ‘naxalism’ mostly resulting from jobless youth disillusioned with an unjust social order. Marked increase in literacy and greater opportunities for jobs fuelled aspirations in the population. The formation of Andhra Pradesh led to frustration of the youth due to lost jobs and the higher educational opportunities which rightfully belonged to them. Agitations followed without any benefits and the political opportunism and the corrupt officialdom corroded the confidence of the younger population in the democratic system. Justice to rural Telangana seems to be a far cry and this is evident in the story of this village during the past many decades.
