The importance of reginal and local history in understanding the complexity of national culture is now recognized. To understand the forces at work in this social and economic formations of a select physiographical are i.e., Telangana and to look at its impact over entire Andhra deśa, an intensive study was made on Telangana during the period A.D. 1000 A.D. 1323. Virtually covering the rule of the Chalukyas of Kalyan and Kakatiyas.

Mrs. Kasturi Pramila (1946) is presently working as Junior lecturer in history in Government Junior College for Girls, Nellore (A.P.). She took her M.A. Degree in history from Andhra University, Vishakhapatnam, in 1976.

This work is substantially the same of my thesis submitted to the Nagarjuna University, Nagarjuna Nagar (A.P.) for the award of Ph.D. Degree in 1989.It took a long period of time to make the press copy ready and get published. During serious personal setbacks occurred and circumstances due to services transfers could not make it possible for me to work further on this aspect. However studies on this period have appeared and they are given there under.
