I fell in love with her powerful poetry. There are no reviews yet.

Thiruvananthapuram, August 20, She writes with a binocular combination katga feminine charm and feminist vigour. I doubt many of us modern women with our high power jobs and parenting, can have half the courage that she alone represented.

I am reading it for the third time. The book should be read by all men to really know the plight of the women trapped in body and time. In the time of I had heard of this book for a long time. In an era when women were expected to serve their husbands, raise kids and lose their identity in household chores, I applaud her defiance of the conventions. Simply I can say this work kuty thr beauty of the wast freedom. 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 enthrall.

When I first read it, about 15 years ago, the only scene that I remembered from the book was when Das her husband forcibly kissing her when they meet for the first time. All through her work I felt her like a reservoir. I was stuck with those scenes. She came out in the open without diluting her thoughts even once.

Clearly a highly kuyty complex person who led a restive emotionally unsatiated life.

He was moving to Mysore from Pune, and this was among the books he donated to our library The Book Leaf. Pampered lot won’t get it.

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.

She is considered one of the outstanding Indian poets writing in English, although her popularity in Kerala is based chiefly on her short stories and autobiography.
