Preface to the Novel New Life
And for a woman thou art first created – Shakespeare says that man is created for woman’s pleasure. Whether it is true or not New life is a Feminist genre created for woman’s pleasure.
For reasons unknown many marriages are breaking very early - they last only days. In some cases the marriages last for years leaving more trouble. What should the brides of broken marriages do? Should they remarry or live a painful single life?
Many people say that they should marriage again and live happily. But remarriage is not as easy as saying. That is why many women prefer to stay in barren marriages. They pretend to be happy hiding the bruises of failure marriage under their mantle. Majority of happy marriages are compromised marriages. Women don’t have the guts to express their pain and seek justice. why?
Women are traditionally shackled and culturally emaciated. The Itahasas written in the epoch of time had laid firm foundation to the ideal woman. Sita’s suffering was so glorified that women are forced to emulate Sita and suffer silently. Many books and films threaten women of ill fate if they separate from man. It is often showed in films and books that the woman who left husband would ultimately reach husband’s feet or ends her life. New life is a huge relief from such male dominant Indian literature.
If marriage fails don’t bury your heart in despair. Man or woman can fall in love at any stage of life. Love is unpredictable and unstoppable. Rise from the fracas and fiasco of marriage and reach New Life from dungeons of despair.
(స్థూలంగా భారతీయ సాహిత్యం మగవాడి పెత్తనాన్ని సమర్థిస్తుంది. అటువంటి ఇతిహాస సాహిత్యాన్ని ఒప్పుకోకపోతే పంబ రేగుతుంది. అందులో పురుషులు తప్పులు చేసినా అదే ధర్మం అని అనకపోతే కుదరదు అందుకే ఆడదాని బ్రతుకు ఇలా ఉంటుంది.మందబుద్ధులకోసం తెలుగులో చెప్పేది ఏమిటంటే మన సాహిత్యం ఎలా ఉంటే మన బతుకులు అలాగే ఉంటాయి.)
