KanyaSulkam


 Click here to download.   Kanyasulkam

Kanyasulkam created revolution both in social reforms field and Telugu literature alike. It dealt with the abolition of Child marriages and Bride price.

The play is set in the Vizianagaram princely state in British India. It deals primarily with the lives of the "upper caste" Brahmins of the area, although it offers a few insights into the lives of other people as well. The play centers on Gireesam, an English-educated, resourceful but unscrupulous Brahmin man, and Madhuravani, a prostitute who takes her morals seriously. Although it maintains a surface of humor through satire, the play conveys the "disgrace to society" that outraged Gurazada.A must read for all who know Telugu.

I hope someone makes a cinema based on this novel. However the dialogues need to be rewritten to suit contemporary Telugu.
