Dear Vadiarajas,

Here are a few references:

http://vadderajulu.blogspot.in/2013/03/vadde-rajulu-gajapathi-kings-in-orisha.ht

It happens in history that the fortunes of a caste/tribe go up or down. Something like that happened with Vadirajas also, mostly because of the advent of muslims. Something like this happened to the Khatris of Punjab. They also are Kshatriyas but today are taken as traders. Beyond this, I cannot answer your question. Traditions grow in time and become solidified. With best regards,

Yours sincerely,
