Post female discourse in India has found fresher grounds with writers such as Sudha Murthy and Triveni Anusuya Shankar , the author of Kashi Yatre, referred to in the text. The former fashions characters which the Indian female readership confined to the conditioning of patriarchy and tradition can look up to. The latter however makes a bolder stand in delineating lifelike characters in her novels that become one with the suffering lot of home makers bound to their chores and religion. The paper presents a polychromatic reading of the short story in question, with respect to female literacy and education along with its scope for emancipation of women from their commoditized state of existence, in India. Sudha Murthy effectively hints at the possibility and fulfillment of female education as a social tool to eliminate female alienation and exploitation at various layers of existence. The plot unravels the idea of doing away with age old superstitions and beliefs which might hinder personal, intellectual and spiritual growth of an individual, with the help of the more rational tenets of the very same tradition. It brings home the realization of tradition as an evolutionary process, free from the grammarian's chains and shackles. It moves on along the path of addition and deletion. Though this is subtly presented, the overall effect gains much radicalism. The story is referred to as an attempt at answering the questions of how the scenario is rapidly changing overnight and what more achievements are we to expect in future.

Colonial education system was set up mainly to educate local men to fill up the British Government posts. English was the medium of instruction and also the language in which trading and ruling, which were all being simultaneously conducted.

Thus procured cheap human resource became instrumental in slow but steady consolidation of the British Empire in India. Women were pushed towards the periphery along with the vernacular languages. The simple question is, what is the most useful way of employing it? All parties seem to be agreed on one point, that the dialects commonly spoken among the natives of this part of India contain neither literary nor scientific information, and are moreover so poor and rude that, until they are enriched from some other quarter, it will not be easy to translate any valuable work into them.

It seems to be admitted on all sides, that the intellectual improvement of those classes of the people who have the means of pursuing higher studies can at present be affected only by means of some language not vernacular amongst them.

The fate of the vernacular literature was akin to the education of women. Therefore it is suggestive of the fact that vernacular fiction in India founded itself largely relying on its female readership. The plight of women education in pre-independence India can be hinted at if we take up the case of Bengal as a representative part of the entire Indian subcontinent.

Roughly after , the East-India Company established itself at Calcutta now Kolkata the then capital of undivided Bengal. Even earlier, i. They tended to think of themselves from a Eurocentric perspective i. I have conversed, both here and at home, with men distinguished by their proficiency in the Eastern tongues. I am quite ready to take the oriental learning at the valuation of the orientalists themselves.

I have never found one among them who could deny that a single shelf of a good European library was worth the whole native literature of India and Arabia. The intrinsic superiority of the Western literature is indeed fully admitted by those members of the committee who support the oriental plan of education.

They still had no faith in democratizing the field of education. The intelligentsia was essentially male, more in composition and completely in perspective. However learned they became, they hung to their medievalism of thought and action.

As a result of which practices like Sati, Gauridaan child marriage , restriction to widow remarriage, etc were still in vogue.

Sudha Murthy - Wikipedia

Rassundari Devi, born in , writes in her Memoir: I was so immersed in the sea of housework that I was not conscious of what I was going through day and night. After sometime a desire to learn how to read properly grew very strong in me. I was angry with myself for wanting to read books. Girls did not read…. That was one of the aspects of the old system ….

People used to despise women of learning… In fact older women used to show a great deal of displeasure if they saw a piece of paper in the hands of a woman. Haimavati Sen, another Bengali woman, born in maintained: It is a popular superstition in our country that women, if educated, have to suffer widowhood. It read: A superstitious feeling is alleged to exist in the majority Hindu families, principally cherished by the women and not discouraged by the men, that a girl taught to read and write will soon after marriage will become a widow.

Ishwar Chandra Vidyasagar2, played a pivotal role in the foundation of female education in Bengal where education was strictly a male arena. He preferred the vernacular language Bengali as the medium of instruction. The young minds were immediately drawn to the immense opportunities that education could provide.

Besides, other Landlords too started sending their daughters to brag off and keep up to their image and status. The following days would witness Vidyasagar himself escorting each and every student from and to their houses. Bethune was well familiar with Vidyasagar and his insatiable thirst for knowledge and untiring passion for the cause of spreading literacy and education among people without discrimination be it caste, creed, sex, colour, etc.


Therefore he appointed Vidyasagar as the Honorary Secretary of the school. This has been largely due to the constant work of many male as well as female educationists down the ages up to the recent times. However, these were well known personalities. Nevertheless there are lesser known names in this field which deserves mention. One of those is that of Savitribai Phule subsequently discussed.

It drives home a hopeful future for the women, in India. The characters problematize the traditional concept of generation gap. They also paint a beautiful picture of the progressive female literacy of recent times. It is a simple but refreshing tale of an unnamed teenager narrator and her unlettered grandmother. Both shares a love for stories and novels. A fictitious kannad writer Triveni is writing a novel KashiYatre. It is appearing serially in a weekly magazine. The young narrator reads each episode to her whenever the next issue is available in the local stores.

After every session the grandmother, Kristakka goes to meet her friends and discusses the latest events. She identifies herself with the old female protagonist of the novel.

The old woman have saved up a considerable amount of money for her pilgrimage to Kashi where she believes she will find deliverance. But she eventually sacrifices her dreams and gives all her savings to help an orphan girl marry the love of her life.

In the meantime, the narrator goes to visit some relatives for a couple of weeks. She came back to find Krishtakka in tears. The grandmother vows to learn how to read by coming Dusserah. The girl, a willing teacher, readily accepts to teach her. By Dusserah, KashiYatre is published as a separate novel. On the appointed day of Saraswati Puja, the author downloads a copy of the same for her grandmother. Krishtakka has something else in her mind.

She touches the young author's feet showing respect for her teacher or guru as ordained by the Hindu tradition. The young author is taken aback nonetheless.

Returning the namskara she presented her with the novel. Krishtakka aged sixty-two, immediately reads the title, author's and the publisher's name. On a cursory reading of the text, one may easily meet the essential values of our tradition such as love, respect, passion, enthusiasm, etc.

IJELLH Volume 6, Issue 2, February However, on a deeper analysis of the text as well as the context, it is easily noticeable that the reader first of all is served with a gynocentric short story where all the characters that appear or are referred to are women.
