And by her own admission she has included a fair number of fictional elements in her autobiography. But, I feel sorry to say that this book is like a plain diary, without any twist or excitement.

Lesbianism, her frequent love affairs, her quest for love – though she discuss themin detail, I wonder whether she had taken many of those things from the world she had created for herself.

Kamala Das wrote on a diverse range of topics, often disparate- from the story of a poor old servant, about the sexual disposition of upper middle class women living near a metropolitan city or in the middle of the ghetto.


Two thin legs moved around in that small house constantly; never resting. 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.

Its not about all the seemingly interesting jadhavikutty that have occurred in her life.

She was noted for her many Malayalam short stories as well as many poems written in English. The milk was beginning to boil in her kitchen. In the book, she explores the desires of women of that era who were bound by tradition and had no say in any matters. With the passage of time, she became a disgrace in his eyes too.

Krishnan Nair author M. Retrieved from ” https: By toiling endlessly from dawn to dusk, she took care of her family.

And I mean vain in the best of ways. I found this book about a person previously unknown to me surprisingly compelling. This is hardly a b Madhavikutty is as rebellious as a rebel can get.

These set the tone for what follows in prose. It is difficult to say how much of it is true as she tends to tease the reader with a story only to reveal that it was all along a work of imagination.
