Sri Pingali Venkayya Garu is also Know as Diamond Venkayya , Patti Venkayya (Cotton Venkayya). Born on August 2, 1876 to Hanumantharayudu and Venkataratnamma at Bhatlapennumaru in the Divi taluk in Krishna district Andhra Pradesh.After finishing his primary education at Challapalli and school at the Hindu High School, Machilipatnam, he went to Colombo to complete his Senior Cambridge. Enthused by patriotic zeal, he enlisted himself for the Boer war at 19. While in Africa he met Gandhi, and their rapport lasted for more than half a century.His patriotic zeal, however, did not permit him to stagnate in a permanent job ( He worked as railway Guard), and his quest for education took him to Lahore where he joined the Anglo-Vedic College, and learnt Japanese and Urdu and History.

From 1906 to 1911, Pingali spent most of his time researching staple varieties of crops and came up with a study on a special variety called Cambodia Cotton. With the British rulers taking notice of his study, Pingali came to be known as Patti Venkayya (literally ‘Cotton Venkayya’).He was immensely knowledgeable in geology and obtained a doctorate in it. He was an authority on diamond mining in Andhra Pradesh and was popularly known as ‘Diamond Venkayya’. Returning to Masulipatnam, he spent 5 years 1916-21 researching flags of 30 countries and finally came up with the present tricolor. However, the flag of the Vandmataram movement is sometimes thought to be the antecedent of Venkayya’s tricolor.

Gandhian Pingali Venkaiah lived in poverty all his life. And even before his death in 1963 in a hut in Vijayawada, Andhra Pradesh, the family was in tatters with the kin hardly knowing the whereabouts of one another.There is not even a memorial in his hometown Machilipatnam to the man who made such an important contribution to the nation.It was only a few years ago that his daughter began to receive pension from the government. There is not even a memorial in his hometown Machilipatnam to the man who brought such glory to Andhra

  1. This reminds me of quote of William Shakespeare from his play Julius Caesar,ACT3 scene (ii) "...the evil that men do lives after them;the good is oft interred with their bones." What a shame that as a nation, we have proved Shakespeare right in the case of this great soul,Dr Pingali Venkayya. While no evil can be attributed to him, an ungrateful nation chose to bury his physical remains and his memorable good deeds even when he was alive!

  2. Really Great Person
