A S JOEL KUMAR

HYDERABAD: Suave and sophisticated, Associate Professor Surya Naik greets one in chaste Telugu as she settles comfortably in her chair.

‘‘I used to help my mother in the fields during my holidays. Given a chance, I won’t hesistate to work even now,’’ she says wistfully. It’s hard to imagine, finding her in the pleasant environs of the college, the roots that she traces to the little-known tribal Thanda, Bhallu Naik, in Miryalaguda. In a roller-coaster life, beginning with her father’s death when she was just three, she has come a long way to be an Associate Professor in the Telugu Department at the University College for Women, Koti.Recalling her early days, she explains, ‘‘Those were the days of early marriage in our parts. I had my elementary education at Bhallu Naik Thanda.’’ Notwithstanding the societal customs, her mother, Dwali Bai, sent her daughter to school while she sweated it out in the fields.

‘‘We had to walk 7 km through the fields to study up to Class V. Later, I joined the ST hostel and completed SSC from the Miryalguda Government High School,’’ Surya narrates.

Domestic pressure to get married briefly threatened her academic progress. She was married to Dhananjay Naik when she was in her Intermediate first year in 1987. She gave birth to a son the next year and for a while, it seemed as though family responsibilities would bring the curtains down on her academic ambitions.

But her indomitable spirit saw her graduate from the BR Ambedkar Open University in 1994 and B.Ed from AMS the same year. ‘‘I then joined the MA (Telugu) course in Koti Women’s College,’’ Surya relates as she goes down her memory lane.

Soon after her post-graduation, she cleared the DSC and was subsequently, selected in the general quota and posted as a teacher at Pedda Amberpet, ZPHS. From then on, there was no looking back for her. She got through the APPSC and moved to the Degree College in Sadasivapet in 1999.

She completed her M.Phil in no time and began her PhD in 2001. Her research was on ‘Banjara life and culture’ in Nalgonda district. She went on to become the first ST woman to receive a doctorate from the university. She was appointed Associate Professor in the Osmania University in May,2007.

‘‘Lambadas have their own language but there is no script. As a result, tribal names have different spellings. I did research in my home district first. I feel there should be a separate Banjara Studies department in the Osmania University,’’ she says.

For all her achievements, the modest teacher credits her mother, husband, deputy commercial tax officer and all her teachers for her success. ‘‘To encourage me, my husband even dropped his idea of doing PhD in London,’’ she recalls. And, with a smile, bids adieu as she picks up her
books.
