PREVIEW FOR LITERARY AWARD BY RAAGASAPTASWARAM TO MALATHI CHANDUR
Legions of bachelors and newlywed housewives have her to thank at least for basic
vantalu, and many for even Vivaha Bhojanambu, the pindivantalu. This is the chance
to see the lady of a million kitchens. Raagasaptaswaram's Sahitya Puraskaram for
the year 2001 goes to Malathi Chandur, the famous writer on food and cooking.
The lady of 'Vantalu, Pindivantalu' hardly needs any introduction to self-taught cooks all over the state - and most of these are housewives and bachelors staying away from home. What most people do not know is that apart from writing articles on preparing dishes, she is also famous for her stories and her features on women's problems and the society.
In recognition of her overall literary contribution, Raagasaptaswaram's gold medal for literature is being awarded to her for this year. For the years 1999 and 2000, the literary awards were given away to Yeddanapudi Sulochana Rani and Vasireddy Seetha Devi respectively.
Raagasaptaswaram, founded in the year 1982 by V S Rajya Laxmi, has been actively organizing programs since the year 1997. Raagasaptaswaram's main programs are Sahitya Puraskarams (literary awards) and music festivals, and they are also into organizing music competitions.
