If you've studied out here, chances are that she would have made her presence felt in some textbook. You can't get out of a school in A P without hearing of this famous freedom fighter. But you do get out of school without hearing of the fights of several other women, for whom the struggle has been for self-esteem, recognition and even just equal opportunity in a male-dominated world. And so it is just fair that the awards in her name should go to such women who have made a name for themselves in a world that still isn't free for them.

The Abhinandana cultural organization is celebrating the birthday of the great freedom fighter and reformist, the late Durgabai Deshmukh, today. On the occasion they intend to give awards to seven women who have contributed significantly to their fields. Abhinandana has been giving these awards for the last 15 years, and some of the prominent women to receive them have been Suman Krishnakant, Sugunamani and Malladi Subbamma.

For this year, Mallu Swarajyam, freedom fighter and the CPI Mahila Vibhag President at the national level, will receive this award, along with Dr Nirmala Devi in literature; Mani Raghunath in music; Vanaja Udai, Professor, Telugu University, in dance; Uma Maheswari, the Bhagavatharini, for Harikatha; Mantri Kalavathi, the State President of the BJP Women Wing for her services in politics; and Nanda Mohan for training a number of women in beauty courses and thereby creating self employment opportunities for them.

B Janaki and group will present a musical show at the end to entertain the audience. Dr C Narayana Reddy will be the chief guest, and Acharya N Gopi will preside over the function.
