Smt.Abburi Chaya DeviNot Kalamkari But a Design of her own
- Munipalle Raju
Life has granted Chaya Devi some enviable gifts. Born and educated in Rajahmundry- the then pivotal centre of renaissance in Andhra. A Parental home where J. Krishnamurti was more relevant than traditional rituals. Married into a family of famous literati, aesthetes and poets. And the chosen vocation is librarianship in Delhi.
To become a writer is not mere accident. As Alexender Blok - the famous Russian Poet states-a writer is a slow growing plant. Growth may be slow, for she is not known as a prolific writer,but the halts and pauses on her Journey (which are essential for further development of a writer’s craft) have definitely helped her to discover distinctly individual style in fiction-a quiet and telling way.
In her scheme for short story’s exposition, climax and conclusion,the discerning reader can see the harmony between the word, the phrase and character’s mood.

For Telugu readers Aburi Chaya Devi, is no new name. Yet,her writings suddenly acquired significance in the Nineties when feminists and protagonists of women's empowerment discovered that probably Chaya Devi is one of the foremost writers who had been contributng to the cause, much before others woke up to the necessity. "I have seen how women are deprived of justice at the workplace and at home too. Exposure broadened my vision" she says.
