    Description

    My Story is one of the most controversial and popular autobiographies written by an Indian author. Kamala Das has presented her life story in the form of a novel, being frank and strikingly sincere throughout. The autobiography is called Ente Katha in Malayalam.

    Summary of the Book

    Kamala Das (also known as Madhavikutty and Kamala Surayya) was always vocal about her experiences as a woman, writer, wife, mother and everything else that she was, through her writings. Ente Katha was serialized in the now defunct Malayalam weekly, Malayalanadu, in 1972. Kamala Das has spoken frankly about her marriage experiences, her children, extramarital affairs, her life as a famous and controversial writer. Although the novel evoked violent positive and equally negative reactions, its publication wasn’t stopped. The novel was first published in English in February 1973, and has been translated into several other languages.

    About Kamala Das

    Kamala Das was born in 1934 in the Malabar District, British India. She was the poetry editor of Illustrated Weekly of India. She penned hundreds of poems and stories in both Malayalam and English. Her columns were famous and widely read in India, through which she addressed a wide spectrum of matters like child care, women’s issues, and politics. She was also the esteemed VC of Kerala Sahitya Akademi, and the President of the Kerala Children's Film Society. Kamala Das was nominated for the 1984 Nobel Prize for Literature. Her works have been translated into several different Indian and foreign languages, including German, French, Russian, Japanese and more. She travelled to different countries to read poetry, including Adelaide Writer's Festival, South Bank Festival, London, and the University of Bonn. Das was honoured with the prestigious Sahitya Akademi Award and the PEN Poetry Prize. In the year 1999, she was yet again in controversy as she converted to Islam and changed her name from Kamala Das to Kamala Surayya. She passed away in the year 2009, at the age of 75. Some of her most notable works as a writer are Sandal Trees, Only the Soul Knows How to Sing, A Childhood in Malabar: A Memoir, and The Kept Woman and Other Stories.

    Marvelous Story

    Very few autobiographies have been written with such wit and truthfulness. Writing "My Story" was an exalting experience for Kamala Das; reading it, is still more exalting. You can feel, as Kamala Das herself says, as if you were traversing the long journey of her life with her, together.

    An unconventional book

    I had always wanted to read a Kamala Das novel and this is a novel I am particularly fond of. Kamala Das's autobiography is unlike anyone I had read before. She was born in Thrissur District in Kerala and the book is a candid account of her own life. She was truly ahead of her times. A fine sense of intellect shines all through this autobiography. If you want to read something truly nostalgic about life in Kerala then this is the book you are looking for. Really, a devastating book (I have ev...

    Mind-blowing purchase

    This is one of my favourite autobiographies without any doubt. Kamala Das captures the life of Indian women back in the 90's and captures the nuances of being a good wife, daughter​, mother and a successful writer. You will fall in love with her writing style by the end of the book. I think she is one of the few authors who can capture the harsh realities of life and still not make it look tragic in the readers eyes. If you are looking for a very real autobiography of an Indian women from...

    Too Good ,A Must Read

    I think its a must read for every woman living in a society where men would even limit the imagination of a woman. The book voiced desires long suppressed. An honest and uninhibited tale told by Kamala Das
