Do not publish some base less statements. Gowda or Vokkaliga community basically the zamindars and rulers. Most of The cheif ministers of karnataka are from this proud community Vokkaliga community is the strong community in karnataka and rulers even today

I don't know much about Gowda in south india. I can put some light on Kushwaha though.
Kushwaha are one of the Kshatriya clan of ancient India. They are known by various names in North (Shakya, Maurya, Koeri). The most famous kushwaha's are Gautam the Buddha, and the Maurya clan (Chandragupta/Ashoka etc).
There was a mass following of Buddhism among Kushwaha for quite some time till Hinduism again took its roots after the Shankaracharya movement.
The current status of Kushwaha's are not really that good. They are economically backward. Even though they are the landowners and farmers in Bihar/UP region, the lack of development of these area and population explosion have reduced their riches. One of the common surname used by Kushwaha are 'Mahato' which means the owner of lands in Village and they used to get work done from laborers etc and collect taxes from other villagers and give to the local ruler. I feel this is similar to the responsibility of the Reddy's/Gowda's so they may be similar caste historically.

Both the castes are poles apart but one thing that binds both of them together is the poverty. Koeri is the one of the five OBCs which is among the seven lowest placed castes in the economy scale of north India. The other four OBCs are called Luniya, Barai, Kewat and Bhar. The remaining two are scheduled castes. Gowda on the other hand is also a low ranking caste group engaged in farm labour. The Gowda caste is known to have moved in to Karnataka from the neighbouring area of Tamil Nadu.

With respect to both the caste groups, we see that the women and children are forced to work due to lack of money. Illiteracy among these groups is a direct outcome of the fact that these people are barely able to make their ends meet. The luxury of schooling which is present among other higher castes are either negligible or absent in both the above caste groups.

The information given above is absolute wrong....Not sure if you know anything about Gowda's...I am one and I know for sure about my family tree and its origins.....Pls dont give out false information on net like this. Gowda itself is a huge caste which has several subcastes...We have upper class and lower class gowdas with hundreds of subclassifications....Upper class Gowda belong to zamindar class who ruled villages and taluks.....lower class are the farmers
