Musings by Gudipati venkata Chalam. Uploaded by Barrister Parvateesam Novel Telugu. Maidanam, the most famous and most controversial of Chalam's novels, dramatises his ideas on marriage, freedom and the moral issues involved in them .
He advocated the bringing up of children without the undue exercise of authority and negligence by parents and society. Chalam, as a student, had got out of the influence of orthodox Hindu religious dogmatism and was attracted towards the Brahmo Samaj movement. However, Brahmo Samaj could only reform the dogmatic aspect of Hindu orthodoxy but did not act differently in matters regarding the family system and the man woman relationship.
This, naturally, caused dissatisfaction in Chalam. Even the Nationalist Movement, which had attracted several people at that time, did not attract Chalam. Because in the Nationalist movement, he mostly found people who were narrow minded and treacherous with regard to their attitude towards family life, women and social morals; who did not give up their casteism and communalism; and who were individually dishonest and opportunistic.
Chalam was not attracted by the politics of the Nationalist movement. Chalam, a writer belonging to a colonial country with a predominant feudal culture was not satisfied with the progressive ideas of the Bourgeois countries either, though they influenced him to a large extent. The influence of Communist politics in Andhra was not considerable during , the period during which Chalam's main writings came out. Marxism, which provides the scientific outlook in understanding society, was not at that time present either in the form of working class movements or literary movement in the Telugu land.
He heard about the Communist set-up in Russia of as a child would listen to fairy tales in moonlit nights.
On the one hand, he wished that those fairy tales turn into reality and doubted such a possibility. On the otherhand, the world-wide propaganda conducted by the capitalist powers against the Communist set up in Russia of influenced and politically aloof intellectuals like Chalam, as it did throughout the world.
As a result, Chalam, in the absence of a strong working class movement, was not drawn towards communism in the context of the fact that an intellectual like Tolstoy remained aloof even from the great Russian working class movement led by Lenin owing to several misconceptions he had about communism. Chalam stopped wearing the sacred thread Yagnopaveetham , started eating non-vegetarian food Brahmins were strict vegetarians and he used to mingle with all castes.
This infuriated all his relatives and more so his father-in-law.
His father-in-law banished him from entering his house. By that time, Chalam's wife's age was merely When his mother-in-law died, Chalam and his friends were not allowed in his father-in-law's the house for the funeral, and they were served food outside.
After completing his studies in Madras, Chalam joined in a job as tutor in Kakinada. Again, he started participating in the Brahma Samaj activities. He also became busy with his friendship with a beautiful girl named "Ratnamma" who happened to be his friend's sister-in-law.
He worked as a teacher in Karimnagar. Then he joined in a job with Teacher's Training College in Rajahmundry.
Rajeswari, a young, frustrated housewife. She narrates her story in the first person although it is not clear whom she addresses.
It all starts with her thorough disillusionment with her tradition-bound, unfeeling, emotionally sterile lawyer-husband who is given to treating her as a piece of property, as one who fulfills his sexual and social needs. Her deliverance comes in the form of Ameer, a client of her husband.
Their very first meeting is an emotionally charged and sexually exciting experience. His looks pierce her clothes and caress her all over her body.
This is a new experience for her. She has never known anything so exhilarating like that before.
