This book is dedicated to:

Smt. Indira Gandhi—our state would not have remained
in its current form, if it were not for her iron will.

The thousands of men and women of Nizam Andhra Mahasabha and the
Communist Party who bravely sacrificed their lives while fighting the
Nizam, the Razakars, and the Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (MIM)

The founders of the Young Men’s Literary Association and Andhra
Mahasabha—these visionary men from coastal Andhra took the
mere idea of a united Telugu state from concept to reality.
