The simple and captivating song by the rural women of Kalwakurthy is sure to become a powerful weapon of the ruling BRS party in the ensuing elections. Sung by rural women of Thandra village of Kalwakurthy constituency in Nagarkurnool district – Kommu Laxmamma, Bolle Susheela, Shanthamma, Kalamma and Anasuya – has a good music score. It was a spontaneous song by the women celebrating the achievements of the BRS party and how Mr KCR benefitted them.
Every mass movement or popular uprising has a strong slogan or song that captivates and galvanises the people for a common cause. Even the slogan during Telangana statehood movement “‘Neellu, Nidhulu, Niyamakalu’ touched the hearts of crores of people. His word ‘fight for self-respect’ was also a big hit among the people. This song by the rural women will undoubtedly make everyone think about what Mr KCR did and what they benefitted from his work.
It highlights an important part of the life of a woman fetching drinking water from the public tap or trekking far-off places. It was really demeaning job for many women as they virtually had to fight and abuse each other to get a pot of water. But how all those woes ended now with Mission Bhagiratha was clearly articulated by these women. The song eulogies Mr KCR as their saviour who cared for the lonely women and elderly by giving them decent amounts of pensions to live honourably.
As this song is by people, of people and for people calling each other to march ahead and strengthen the hands of Mr KCR, this is going to be a powerful weapon of BRS during the campaign in the next few days. Indeed Mr KCR liberated the Telangana people from decades of subjugation and humiliation of Andhra leaders. The song aptly captures his life and work. Kudos to these women An improvised version of this song was released by BRS working president Mr K T Rama Rao the other day at Pragathi Bhavan.
