It is the life sketch of Mahatma Jyothi Rao Phule (1827-1890).  A renowned activist, thinker, social reformer, writer, philosopher, editor, revolutionary and a pioneer in Women’s education and emancipation.  He fought against caste system and untouchability.  Dr. Ambedkar acknowledged him as his guru who influenced him the most.

 

This is the first play ever written in Telugu on “Mahatram Jyothi Rao Phule” with   19 Scenes.  Since the Mahatma lived in Maharashtra during 19th century, the play was skillfully written to depict the culture, traditions and way of life of Maharastians of those days.  A TV serial was telecasted based on this drama.
