I’ve read Chalam’s Maidanam cualam couple of years ago and loved it. So I was looking for more of his works and found a set of his novels in a bookstore recently.
మైదానం [Maidanam] by Chalam
The first of those I read was Sasirekha. Sasirekha is the story of a woman and her love for 3 different men at 3 different stages in life. Chalam explores the concept of love at different stages of life so beautifully. As a teenager, she’s attracted to Krishna who praises her and worships her like a deity. Once she matures and grows into an I’ve read Chalam’s Maidanam a couple of years ago and loved it. Once she matures and grows into an adult, she falls for Sundar Rao who comes across as an intelligent man with clear views on everything in his life.
However, she can’t forget Rama Rao who she loved as a kid and can’t help feeling drawn towards him when she bumps into him at a stage when she has no love left for Sundar Rao.
Chalam takes us through these phases of her love explaining us the complexities in her mind and her thoughts towards love, marriage and society. Sasirekha has least regard for a society that doesn’t give the choice of love and marriage to the woman.
She detests the hooks that a woman is judged by the relationships she maintains hooks the men in her life. Chalam also critiques the Brahmo Samaj a bit in a subtle manner.
A question which I always had – if Brahmo Samaj was as radical and open as suggested by most Bengali literature of the day, how come it didn’t spread wider?
Why didn’t it impact many more thought leaders? Chalam answers these questions to an extent. He illustrates the difference between a man’s love and a woman’s love through situations, dialogues and his own commentary.
