Telugu story writer making literary waves

Gangadhar's book takes characters from rural background
  • He finds place among 10 literary doyens
  • Gangadhar's short stories are adjudged the best
KADAPA: వేంపల్లి గంగాధర్ (Vempalli Gangadhar), a Telugu story writer of Kadapa district, finds place among 10 literary doyens such as Mahasweta Devi, Ashapurna Devi, Javed Akhtar and likes in the contemporary Indian literature section on `Indianetzone', an e-magazine on literature.

Gangadhar's book మొలకల పున్నమి (Molakala Punnami), a collection of 13 short stories, delineates characters from rural background and is full of pathos of the deprivedand reflects the voices of those who depend on land and vagaries of nature.

It is a feather in Gangadhar's cap to figure among writers such as Mulk Raj Anand, K.M. Munshi, Jibananda Das, Buddhadev Bose and Dharamvir Bharati and Sunil Gangopadhyay on the site.

Telugu pandit

Gangadhar's short stories were adjudged the best in R.S. Krishnamurthy Memorial story competitions at Visakhapatnam and by Telugu monthly, విపుల (Vipula), this year.

He works as Telugu pandit in Zilla Parishad high school at Peddaputha village in Kamalapuram constituency.

Renowned writer Gunturu Seshendra Sarma, who wrote the foreword in the book `Molakala Punnami,' acknowledged that the stories reflected a similar struggle like that in his popular work ఆధునిక మహాభారతం (Adhunika Mahabharatham).

The book by Gangadhar also carries an article కడప మాండలిక భాష (Kadapa Mandalika Bhasha) (local dialect of Kadapa) by Boodaraju Radhakrishna.

Gangadhar is also the recipient of American Telugu Association Award and a national story award.
