Backward reading of history[edit]

I think this article suffers from a backward reading of history (which, I am sure, is contained in many sources). According to Cynthia Talbot,[1] The transformation of occupational identities such as ka(m)pu and reddi into hereditary "caste" labels did not occur in Andhra until at least the late Vijayanagara period (ca. seventeenth century), if even then. Throughout much of the medieval period, the abundance of land and the ever-changing patterns of agrarian settlement fostered flexibility in social relations and mutability in definitions of community. Prior to this "caste" formation, "Reddi" was used as an honorific (probably meaning something like "chief") for a long time. The early Kakatiyas used the title. We can't claim that every "Reddi" name occurring in the history represented membership in a caste. In fact, this caste is relatively new. -- Kautilya3 (talk) 10:11, 15 December 2016 (UTC)

We should also remember that the term jati (birth group) was never used in Andhra. It is always kula (lineage). Castes in the North Indian sense did not exist in Andhra until the colonial period. Perhaps we need a page on Caste system in Andhra to set down these broad facts? -- Kautilya3 (talk) 10:34, 15 December 2016 (UTC)

Under the languages spoken for the Reddy caste, it only states Telegu, but Tamil is also a spoken language for the caste. 2601:3C3:301:A10:B147:8DC5:33B4:93B1 (talk) 02:30, 16 November 2017 (UTC)
