In this collection of stage/radio plays, 'Slighted Souls' scripts the life of the downtrodden of Rampur nearly a decade after the famous but failed peasant struggle of Telangana. Making cohorts with Muthyal Rao the dora in oppressing its dalits are Papa Rao the Police Patel, Rami Reddy the Patwari, Papi Reddy the landlord and Shaukar Suryam the moneylender. Beginning with the life and times of Yellaiah and his wife Mallamma this play unfolds the urge of the deprived to unyoke themselves, and the desperation of the privileged to rein them in.
'Men at work on Women at work' is about sexual harassment at the work place; Even as 'Castle of Despair' is built on the ground of man's urge for success, 'A Love on Hold' delves into the arena of love and possession.
