The present paper tends to explore the explosion of trauma represented in Indian Telugu Literature through a short story Samskruthi attempted by Raamaa Chandra Mouli, a renowned Telangana Telugu poet, fiction writer. Samskruthi stands as the foremost example for understanding gender, social and economic discourses. In the attempt to investigate the field of trauma studies in Indian regional literature that has gained significant attention, taking into account a psychoanalytic approach that places great importance on how the mindscape influences one’s behavior and personality, a Telugu short story is appraised. Considerably, what wo/man thinks, forms what s/he is. Literature has the power to display pain, anxiety, wound. The narration of Mouli, who has become one of India’s major writers in recent decades, brings to the fore the complex economic dimensions amalgamated within the society, and this proposed paper explores the traumatized female protagonist with five professional photographers situated in a room that can be characterized as dystopia enabling her to step in Utopia like mental space and attempts to locate it on a broader perspective.
