Nothing has an end, Instead of an end, all that we suffer is a discomposition. I wonder how many humans will ever dare to say that before their death.


In the time of just independent India, when the position of women had a lot to cry about still, here is a woman who knew her mind and who put herself and her individuality much before anything else.

These set the tone for what follows in prose. One can not stand on moral judgement and say whether how she led her life and what she did or did not do, was right or wrong. But trails off later This autobiographical work was considered overly explicit when it was first published in Malayalam in This volume is further proof that here is a writer who will not go gently into the swirling mists of easy oblivion but will continue to haunt this world and the readers she so loved to enthral.

എന്റെ കഥ | Ente Katha

All that I ever wanted to do, all my desires, I have fulfilled in this life”. That’s a different experience.

To think that someone like her existed not so long ago, gives me hope. There are no reviews yet. Gradually, Kamala becomes resigned to, and then later adjusts to, her marriage to a man who for the most part shows little interest in her. Something that cannot be described in mere words. The malayalam is more complicated, may because I’m not used to reading more malayalam books.

The lyricism of her verses contrasting well with her straightforward prose. Sometimes I am forced to think that Mzdavi might have acknowledged that her husband is a homosexual. No other authors in India can do a work like this. Open Preview See a Problem?

So we are left in the dark about her reasons for her conversion to Islam and the events in the second half of her madaiv. The line that i loved the most was her own comments about her life-” I don’t think I will have another incarnation, another after life.

I can see why it was so mzdavi in the then relatively conservative and tradition-bound communities in Kerala. Kamala Das is probably the first Hindu woman to openly and honestly talk about sexual desires of Indian woman, which made her an iconoclast of her generation. But in the glow of those evening suns, we felt that we were Gods who had lost their way and had strayed into an unkind planet.


Book scan Friday Review. Uploaded by Nishad Backer on January 23, Some narratives about the author’s own escapades, I found that her men are insignificant and at times seem too good to be real.

The Times of India. Really an awesome poet, writer and lover. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. Yet another scene was when her cousin kisses her near a staircase. She writes with a binocular combination of feminine charm and feminist vigour. I could resonate with the voice of the author Kamala Das in the beginning as she eloquently speaks of innermost thoughts of an average middle class Indian girl.

Her emotional roller coaster rides, her terrifying fear of mediocrity, her striving for effect, the constant re-invention of her self, are all there for the reader once again. Its not about all the seemingly interesting things that have occurred in her life. The amount of enemies she earned within her family and community is the most shocking; people belonging to her own community tried to kill her using sorcery and even trying to stop her book from being published.

Realising her mental agony was distressing and depressing.
