Facts About Priyanka Jawalkar
Priyanka was born into a middle-class Marathi family in Anantapur, Andhra Pradesh.
When Priyanka was 6 years old, her interest in acting grew after watching the Tamil movie “Jeans” (1998). Priyanka is shocked by Aishwarya Rai’s appearance and outfit in the movie and decides to become an actress.
After completing her graduation, she was shown two short films, “Possessiveness” and “It’s A Girl’s Problem”.
Priyanka Jawalkar was the first of the three children of King Bhimasra Jha. Her birth was noted by the then ruler, as the moment when he saw his son begin to take interest in the finer aspects of life. The king decreed that Jawalkar’s birth be celebrated with great fanfare and declared that a dauber would oversee the event. The celebration was carried out on the day of Bhimasra Jha’s accession to the throne of Magadh with all pomp and circumstance. This is known as Durga Puja.
Although Bhimasra Jha had already taken on the regency, it was not long before he had his daughter married to another man. His second daughter, Priyanka, also bore him one daughter, Durga. This was the beginning of an unhappy marriage for Bhimasra Jha. He also had to deal with the fact that Durga was unhappy in her husband’s absence.
Priyanka’s father, Bhimasra Jha, had gone ahead and acceded to power after the passing of his first wife. It was through this marriage that Priyanka began to be referred to as Durga, or Durga Priyanka. She was also to experience the terrible ‘curse of youth’. This caused her to have a history filled with physical disfigurement and self-castration.
Jawalkar writes about her in glowing terms, as the biographer of a celebrity. She is described as beautiful both inside and out. Priyanka was always described as ‘fierce’, a quality common only with a few women of her time. Even in her most intimate encounters, she never showed any sign of emotion.
Jawalkar reveals much about the cultural norms in those days that allowed this type of social hierarchy to exist. She tells us that it was common for a male child to be treated as an adornment by his elders. Priyanka was subjected to the same treatment. She was taken for granted and was also made to feel that she owed it to her elders to complete household chores and other such duties. In fact, it was through her step-sisters that she learned about the concept of working outside the home.
The book describes Jawalkar’s upbringing in a patriarchal Indian society. It is clear from the biographer’s words that Jawalkar did not consider herself inferior, or lesser than anyone else. Rather, she saw herself as a valuable member of the Indian community, and as a daughter of a higher rank than others. Jawalkar even went on to marry at a later age, a decision that would be considered extremely brave in those times. The book thus portrays Jawalkar as a woman who has broken all of the rules, even though at the time, it might seem unnatural.
In addition to her role as a wife and a mother, Jawalkar also spent much of her early years as a student. Though she was a little older when she joined the British army, she managed to graduate with a bachelor’s degree. It is this degree, coupled with her experience fighting in the Boer war, that comes through in the memoir. Jawalkar explains how a young girl in India, after watching her father being decorated in the Indian Army, decided that she too would follow in his footsteps. This was a huge change from the path that most Indian women had followed, which was to go to work in the cities and earn a meager income.
Though many people criticize the manner in which the biographer has chosen to write about Jawalkar, there is no doubt that she has done a great job of telling the full story of this extraordinary woman. As the reader begins to understand the influence that Jawalkar had on Indians at the time of her life, as well as how she managed to rise above the barriers of her upbringing, the reader is left with an insight into a woman that one might have only heard about elsewhere. Priyanka Jawalkar biographer does an excellent job of conveying a woman that is still remembered fondly by Indians today as a legendary celebrity.
