To analyze the changing scene in the village a brief recapitulation of its history is necessary. According to government records there was a small hamlet on the site on which the present comparatively large village of Shamirpet is situated. The Police Action was the turning point in the life-history of the village, as it inaugurated the operation of a new set of influences in the life of the community. The contrasting picture of the village representing the last phase of the feudal period can be drawn from actual ethnographic observation and record. In the dress and ornaments of the village people there has been very noticeable change. Side by side with the traditional recreations of gossip, loafing and playing indigenous games, several new varieties of entertainments are available to the village people. The social structure of the community is basically the same, although with every administrative or political change in the village there were several organizational changes.
