Empowered Women in history-Nari Shakti Day’ seminar on 28th May 2024

Dakshinapatha Studies ( an initiative of Centre for South Indian Studies) in collaboration with Telangana Mahila Vishwavidyalayam conducted an important seminar titled `Empowered Women in history- -Nari Shakti Day’ on Vaisakha Bahula Panchami which fell on 28th May 2024 at Telangana Mahila Vishwavidyalayam (formerly Koti women’s college). Dr Vidyullatha, Incharge VC, Telangana Mahila Vishwavidyalayam applauded Dakshinapatha studies for conducting the seminar on the auspicious occasion of Rajyabhishekam (coronation day) of the great Kakatiya queen Rani Rudrama Devi (gathered from literary sources). Dr Saraswatamma, special officer stated that our rich legacy comes from the contribution of several great inspirational women, political leaders, artists, space travelers and homemakers; she said it’s wonderful to celebrate Nari Shakti Day and remember Rani Rudrama Devi.

Dr Gopal Reddy, President CSIS – Dakshinapatha Studies in his address stated on the auspicious occasion of Vaisakha Bahula Panchami, we are celebrating Rani Rudrama Devi’s coronation day. He said unfortunately India has been portrayed as a bad place of patriarchy, poverty and under development etc, it is totally false as we have great women rulers and administrators like the great Indore Rani Ahilyabai Holkar, Rani Chennamma of kittoor in Karnataka, Rani Nayaki Devi of Gujarat, Rani Jhansi Laxmibai who were great queens of Bharat. The British plundered and looted our country, reducing it to penury and impoverishment. CSIS is trying to unravel the forgotten icons, leaders and forgotten epochs in history.

Dr Lavanya, Dean Telangana University, Nizamabad presented the keynote address which discussed women contributors through the ages starting from the Vedic period. There’s no sector or field without the contributions of women today. Dr Surya Kumar, Retd lecturer of History; Dr Bhinnuri Manohari, editor Moosi Patrika, author, researcher and epigraphist; Dr Sudakshana, author and researcher; Dr Aruna HoD History Dept, Telangana Mahila Viswavidyalayam presented research papers on various topics pertaining to Kakatiya period in the seminar.
