Megastar Chiranjeevi’s Magnum opus Sye Raa is the biopic of the first Rebellion Uyyalawada Narasimha Reddy from Kurnool District, Andhra Pradesh.
There are so many incidents about Uyyalawada Narasimha Reddy that everyone should know but there is one such incident that should be known and remembered by our generations.
Uyyalawada Public Hanging
He was publicly hanged on 22nd February 1847, on the banks of a nearby river in the presence of Collector Kokcrane. His head was kept on the fort wall in public view for 30 years from 1847 to 1877 to instil fear in the people so that another rebellion won’t be tried by others against the British.
As Britishers hang Uyyalawada to death, they ask him if he has any last wish to be done. Uyyalwada says his last wish as 'Go away from my country’. And for British people took almost 100 years as they left the country in 1947 while Uyyalawada was hanged in 1847.
