Bheem is a Telugu Patriotic play written by Harsha Chakilam based on the life story of Komaram Bheem.
Komaram Bheem was a Telugu Indian tribal leader who fought against the Asaf Jahi Dynasty for the liberation of Hyderabad. Komaram Bheem openly fought against the ruling Nizam government in a guerrilla campaign. He defied courts, laws, and any other form of Nizam authority, living off the sustenance of the forest. He took up arms against Nizam Nawab’s soldiers and fought Babi Jhari until his last breath.
He gave the slogan of “Jal, Jungle, Zameen” (Water, Forest, Land). It means that the people who live in forests should have rights on all the resources of the forest.
