  8. Hi my self Sistla Ramakrishna Sastry. My father is Sistla Dakshana murthy.
    I am working as senior consultant in IBM India Hyderabad.

    The information which I have gathered from parents and elders, there was a great
    spiritual Brahmin from Sistla family in Krishna District. He has a good relation with the area land lord.By god grace 14 agaraharas given to that Brahmin by lanlord. some of them
    includes kandriga , vennutala, kanakvalli and so on..

    Sistla families spread across these areas.

    coming to our details, at that time there was heavy rains or drought situation in krishna
    district. People are struggling for food.

    at that time for relaxation land lord moved to guntur district. The brahmin has been moved
    along with land lord. After some days he has requested landlard to go back to kandriga.
    land lord suggested to spend more days. Brahmin replies saying” I have food here but what
    about my people?.

    The land lard given some more agraharams like bellampally near sattenapally.

    As the Brahmin see the river Gundlakamma and thought that it is a good place for his
    spiritual activities and requested the land lord.

    He has been provided with area of Peddavaram(Agraharam). This is in Guntur District near Vinukonda.

    We are the sixth generation people.
