Sheer Khorma

Print edition :

Shaik Yousuf Baba, who writes under the pen name of Skybaaba, is a prolific poet and activist and one of the founders of the movement in Telugu called ‘Muslimvada Sahityam’ which is an identity upon which to ground a literary as well as a political consciousness. This literature also gives voice to the question of women’s status within Islam and, significantly, caste among Muslims in Andhra Pradesh. “My language is a mix of Urdu and Telangana Telugu.”

Uma Maheswari Bhrugubanda is Assistant Professor, Department of Cultural Studies, English and Foreign Languages University, Hyderabad, and a member of Anveshi Research Centre for Women’s Studies.

“Sheer Khorma” is from an anthology of Telugu stories by Skybaaba edited by A. Suneetha and Uma Maheswari Bhrugubanda and translated by the latter. The collection titled “Vegetarians Only” by Orient BlackSwan (2017) is the entire collection of the author’s first book of stories, “Adhure: Muslim Kadhalu” (2012).
