Born in 1934 in Kerala, Kamala Das was the author of several novels, collections of poetry and short stories in English as well as Malayalam.
First published in Malayalam in 1973, My Story, her sensational autobiography, shocked readers with its total disregard for mindless conventions and its fearless articulation of subjects still considered taboo.
Depicting the authors intensely personal experiences in her passage to womanhood and shedding light on the light on the hypocrisies that informed traditional society, this memoir was far ahead of its time and is now acknowledged as a bona fide masterpiece.
