Seetaramarao Mudiyam

Seetaramarao Mudiyam belonged to Nandavareeka Brahmin caste. His ancestral village Mudiyam is in Jummalamadugu taluk in Kadapa district. Seetaramarao's father was Krishnarao, who was a revenue inspector in Rompicherla, which was in Kadapa district in the British Madras Province. Rompicherla is now in Chittoor district in Andhra Pradesh. Krishnarao married Lakshmamma after his first wife died. Seetaramarao was born to Lakshmamma and Krishnarao on March 19, 1879. Seetaramarao had two stepbrothers and a sister. He married Tulasamma Sambatoori from Kolkata in 1899 and had five sons and five daughters.

Seetaramarao was educated in Rompicherla, Badvelu, Rayachoti, Madanapalli, and Bengalooru. He was not very bright student. He failed in FA and BA exams. However, he succeeded in his second attempts. He finished his training at Teacher's Training College in Rajamahendravaramu (Rajamundry) in 1904, only after failing once. He befriended a missionary, with who he used to play tennis. The missionary appointed Seetaramarao as the headmaster in his mission school. But, soon the mission school was closed leaving him jobless. During that time, Veeresalingam Kandukuri and his Hitakarini Samajam Trust (see below) took over and upgraded a middle school to a high school. The middle school was founded by Lakshminarasimham Chilakamarti. Seetaramarao was appointed headmaster (principal) of the high school upon recommendations from the inspector of schools Mr. Yates and the principal of the government training college Mr. Hunter (both British). This school was later named after Veresalingam as "Veeresalingoannata pathasala" (Veeresalinga High School) after the king of Pithapuram gave financial support. Soon after, Seetaramarao quit the job due to religious reasons and moved to his native place in Chitturu. He joined Chitturu District Boar of Education and served as headmaster for various schools in Chandragir, Kalahasti, and Chitturu. He retired in 1935.

His literary works include ramaayaNakathalu, mahaabhaaratakathalu, garuDuDu-sarpayaagamu, bheemuDu, arjunuDu, bheeshmuDu, karNuDu, balichakravarti, parasuraamuDu, duryoadhanuDu, harschaMdracharitamu, buddhuDu, Julius Caesar, hyderali-Tippusultanu etc. He translated Sir Walter Scott's Kenilworth.



(The Hitakarini Samajam founded by Pantulu (Pundit) Veeresalingam Kandukuri is going to celebrate its centenary celebrations in November/December 2006. The Hitakarini Samajam has been running five educational institutions, namely, SKVT Degree College, SRK Degree College for Women, SKVT English Medium School, VT Junior College and VT High School and the Endowments Department had adopted Hitakarini Samajam and all the five institutions. The Government was giving grant-in-aid for these institutions but the Endowments Department was not giving any funds to Hitakarini Samajam.)
