So we are left in the dark about her reasons for eente conversion to Islam and the events in the second half of her life. I do agree that it would needed a lot of courage to put all of her thoughts on paper without filters, I’m not sure I could do it.

The nete and feudalistic nature of the caste system and the masquerade of fake integrity to match the eye alone. Admire her for her fine and bold way of writing. I had heard of this book for a long time. She writes with a binocular combination of feminine charm and feminist vigour.

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. Sometimes I am forced to think that Kamala might have acknowledged that her husband is a homosexual.
During her era, I guess she was the only writer with grit and courage to explicitly write about her personal life and the shadow side of her family who are very well known in her state and throughout the sub-continent. Hardy’s crushingly depressing assessment of human existence comes to mind: With its mesmerizing poetry, and the captivating poet who pinned them up;this is nothing short of marvelous!

Despite what I had heard and what she writes about her many loves, it’s evident that her affairs were more affairs of her heart and intellect rather than meaningless but passionate encounters. By today’s standards it would not cause an eyebrow to begin to be raised. The relationships with her grandmother and the healthy relationship she carried with her sons was beautifully mentioned.

No wonder her home state of Kerala was so ready to condemn it as a scandalous story written by an immoral woman. You can help Wikipedia by expanding it. When one of her love letters ended up in her husband’s hands he warns her saying that she is innocent and she should keep herself away from such fraudsters.
When you learn to swim Do not enter a river that has no ocean To flow into, one ignorant of destinations and knowing only madaiv flowing as its destiny, Like the weary rivers of the blood That bear the scum of ancient memories But go, swim in the sea, Go swim in the great blue sea, Where the first tide you meet is your body, That familiar pest, But if you learn to cross it, You are safe, yes, beyond it kkutty are safe, For even sinking would make no difference then It was catchy and clinging to read on and on and finish the story which begun with adolescence and ends with the realisation of death and old age!
One characteristic that makes her stand ktha is her individualistic personality. Parameswara Iyer Unnayi Variyar V. Clearly a highly intelligent complex person who led a restive emotionally unsatiated life.
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. I can well imagine what it must have been to chat with her face-to-face!
At times I could see a slightest hint of an outspoken rebel Thanks to my dear friend who gifted this book. Thanks for telling us about the problem. An Indian woman writing about extramarital affairs, madai fantasies and lesbianism in the early 70s; no wonder this book caused controversies.
