    Jampala Chowdari garu informed me that Sri Ramanamurthy checked the archives and came up with the finding. It is CSRao’s story, later renamed kamalamma kamatham and made into a movie. Thanks everybody!

    ‘ద్రష్ట – చూచేవాడు. శ్రోత వినేవాడు. అందుకనే రసము సామాజికనిష్టము అన్నాడు. నటనిష్టము కాదు. ఏదైతే కవిత్వాన్నుంచొ నాట్యం నుంచో వచ్చే ఆనందంవుందే, రసం – అది సామాజికనిష్టము. నటనిష్టము కాదు. …నటనిష్టము కూడా కొంత అవుతుంది. కాని ప్రధానంగా సామాజికనిష్టము.’ Excerpt from: http://eemaata.com, Sep2012 విశ్వనాథగారితో వేదాంత చర్చ.
    Viswanadhagaru explained this Rasa theory(Anandavardhana’s Dhvani theory) using the characters from Sakuntala and Dushyantha play.
    I think suggestive power of the story is very crucial to any understanding/commentary.The writer may not be aware of the impact on the reader. Ultimately the meaning a discerning reader gets is valid for him/her. A writing has as many interpretations as there are readers.
    In this story, RaaRaa is saying: Peddamma is trapped in a ‘gesture’ life, cut off from real emotional connections. He is an astute critical thinker and must be aware that this is the situation/tragedy of a woman in patriarchal society. Our lives are not really ours, are mostly shaped by the ruling social organization, ప్రధానంగా సామాజికనిష్టము. I think that is the point of the story. Being a woman, the narrator’s wife glimpses it. The narrator does not. The ending is the heart of the story. The author must have structured it knowingly. Otherwise the ending is superfluous. I have not seen RaaRaa’s essay on structure.
    I am glad you are trying to create some serious conversation in our apathetic literary climate.

    PVV Suryanarayana, Thanks for your interest in Thulika.net.
    Original English articles are welcome. I have not yet thought about original stories in English, but I might consider provided they fall within the purview of policies of this site. In either case, please note that the core aim of this site is to introduce Telugu culture and traditional values to non-Telugu speaking audience, particularly foreign audience. In that sense, articles and stories depicting Telugu culture and traditions in detail will be accepted for consideration.
