Hanumantharao Jallepalli (1867-1920)

Hanumantharao Jallepalli was born in Srikakulam, in a poor Kasalanatla Brahmin family in 1867. He was the only child of Venakteswarlu and Lacchamma. Because of poverty, he had to depend on charity for his education and day-to-day needs. In those days, poor Brahmins depended on "vaaraalu ", a tradition of education in which a poor Brahmin student was provided support, food and shelter by other Brahmin families. Brahmin families used to provide help on a daily basis or weekly basis. Thus,some times, the poor Brahmin student used to live in different homes, moving from home to home daily. It used be a common practice for poor Brahmin students to go for begging daily. This begging was called "madhookaramu" (See also eminent playback singer Gantasala's biography).

After his FA (pre-college course in Arts), he joined the teaching profession and continued his education. He finished BA and First Grade Pleader Examination, and started a new career as a government pleader in Vijayanagaram. He became rich as a result of his pleader practice. However, he did not forget his childhood poverty. He provided not only support for poor students, but also donated several homes.

He had independent views from his childhood. He wrote yatipraasanirnayamu and published it in 1897. In this book, he argued that there was no need for meter in Telugu poetry and included "maa talli chittaruvu", a translation of William Cowper's "My Mother's Picture", to prove his viewpoint.

Hanumantharao was a great pundit in both Telugu and Sanskrit languages, as per the Brahmin tradition. In addition, he was also a pundit in English and Hindi languages. He wrote several books, e.g., Sivodvaaham - a drama, susenavijayam - a translation of Shakespeare's Cymbaline, streevidyabhyaasam - a translation of an essay by Sidney Smith - who drew attention to the "empty minds and nimble fingers of women" in arguing that there was a need for reform in women's education, sankaraacaarya caritra, sreemadbhaagavata siramu, mahinnustotram - a translation of the same title in Sanskrit by Pushpadanta, and raamaayanamu - translation of Tulasidas' Hindi Ramayan.
