Those were the days when Mahatma Gandhi was thrown out of a train in South Africa and the courts and the government in the United States enforced segregation. The situation was no different in the then Madras Province of British India.
Despite the discrimination, Joshua graduated from high school and obtained training in teaching. From through he was a Telugu pundit in a High School, Guntur. For a couple of years , he worked as a producer in Madras Radio Station.
In , he became a member of Andhra Pradesh Legislative Council. This was the same Joshua who was not allowed to read his poetry by sharing the same dais shared by the poets and writers of Vinukonda! This was not only a proud moment for Joshua, but also a vindication for the Andhra Society in overcoming the practice of segregation. Hemalata and Lavanam had never met before, but they agreed to an inter-caste marriage arranged by their parents.
Despite the great strides by Andhra society in overcoming the segregation, the tribalism still continues in Andhra politics and matrimony. The subject of his poetry was humanity and rationalism. He likened himself to Karna of Mahabharat mythology. Karna was not allowed to participate in a competition along with the ruling class because he was a commoner, just like Joshua was not allowed to read his poetry in Vinukonda.
Joshua condemns this discrimination and his poetry involves revolt against the exploitation of the poor by the rich and prescribes redistribution of wealth.
Joshua said that he had two teachers, one was poverty that taught him patience and the other was segregation that taught him rebellion. He waged a war against both poverty and segregation with his poetry and succeeded. His famous works are piradausi, gabbilamu, kandiseekudu, mumtajmahal, swapnakatha, netaji, kreestu, charitra, kottalokamu, and naakatha. All rights reserved.
