Bhandaru Acchamamba Satcharitra
This is a brief biography of Bhandaru Acchamamba, perhaps the first story writer, and indeed the first women’s historian in Telugu.
Within 8 chapters the author Kondaveeti Satyavati tries to given insight into the short (30 year long) life of a woman who not only wrote several stories and attempted a history of women across India, but was also a staunch supporter of the Swadeshi movement and was a an asocial worker.
Her writings in Telugu are all the more remarkable as she lived in the State for a very short period of time and had managed to balance her personal domestic life with her strong feminist thinking.
