He is the son of a common farmer named Basavarajappa Kasambi and Sharadamma.

He then went on to graduate with top rank from Govt Post Graduate College in Anandpur, Sagar Taluk, PUC in 1999. In 2002, he graduated from DVS College in Shimoga with Kannada as his optional subject.

During his college days, Ramesh worked through the night and studied during the day to escape poverty.

Despite the village mocking his aspirations, Ramesh persevered and eventually achieved success through hard work and dedication. His passion for writing and commitment to his studies eventually led him to success, proving that with hard work and dedication, anything is possible.

Post-graduation, Ramesh Hirejamburu developed a strong character and became a leader. He participated in various movements such as the left-wing movement, peasant movement, Dalit movement, and pro-Kannada movements, becoming an active fighter. He developed connections with seniors like Kadidalu Shamanna, Prof. Nanjundaswamy, Dr. G.S.S., Prof. Baraguru Ramachandrappa, Prof. K.S. Nisar Ahmed, and S. Lankesh, and under the leadership of Sundar Lal Bahuguna, he raised his voice and participated in many movements.

Ramesh Hirejambur worked in many newspaper companies in Shimoga before moving to Bangalore in 1996. When he arrived in the garden city, he was about three months old and faced many challenges, including hunger. This experience taught him a great lesson, and he became someone who challenges everything without claiming it. However, he did not leave a mark on this village. Later, he received a job from an evening newspaper known as Trivikrama, where he worked under the editor Venkatesh and the MD Chennakrishna. Sivakumar gave him a silver plate to mark this achievement. After this, Ramesh went back to Hirejamburu but continued his education in Mysore, completing a master's degree in 2006.

Ramesh worked as a reporter for various media outlets such as Prajamata, Prajavani, TV9, Vijayakarnataka, Vijayavani, and ETV. He then moved on to become the Chief Correspondent of the Political Department at News18 in Kannada, where he worked diligently to report on current political events. His exceptional work was not overlooked, and he was recognized with the prestigious 'Best Reporter' award. Ramesh's talent and dedication eventually led him to become the Editor-in-Chief of a news magazine, where he continued to make a significant impact on the national and Karnataka media industry.

Ramesh Hirejamburu, who was recognized in both the field of movement and literature, also wrote works like 'Suliyanchu', 'Mouna Beladimlu', 'Maggalu Mullu', 'Another Name for Satyakka Kayaka', 'Weeping Rivers', 'Yamana Geddavaru'. Another name for his satyakka-kayaka Kriti received many state awards including the Aryabhata International Award, Basavashree Award, Bangalore Ratna Award, Nadbhushan Award, Kempegowda Award, Tipu Sultan Award in 2010. He also won the BM Shri Kavya Award for his work 'Aaluva Nadiyali'. In 2010, journalist and writer Mr. Ramesh Hirejamburu was honored with the prestigious Nadaprabhu Kempegowda Award given by BBMP from the field of journalism.

In 2019, while serving as a special duty officer for Minister Shri B. Sriramulu, the outbreak of the Corona pandemic happened. During this time, he was one of the only officers to enter the Corona wards of Gulbarga District Hospital, where the first Corona death in the country occurred. His actions during this critical time have become a significant part of history. December 2021 witnessed members of the SC/ST board hold a protest demanding a 7.5% reservation for the SC/ST category near Vidhanasoudha. They also demanded the government to take action against those who fake caste certificates. The issue of fake caste certificates has increased in the entire state, and the protesters demanded the government prevent the spread of counterfeit caste letters. Ramesh Hirejambur, the President of the Alliance of Equal Minds and Karnataka Leaders demanded that immediate officials be appointed to the Welfare Department of the Scheduled Tribes. By February 2021, Justice Manmohan Das's report implemented 7.5 percent for reservations.

Ramesh Hirejamburu plans to progress in the field of politics with his unyielding determination to bring justice to the oppressed and tyrannized members of our society. Each move executed by him only serves towards the progression of Karnataka in a positive direction. We at Icons of Indian Business wish him the best in his future endeavors and hope he attains success at each stage.
