Kamala Das: A Poetess and A Thinker by Dr. Anupam Gond
I am aware of the fact, there are a few books purported to be full length studies of Kamala Das’s poetry available and there are also scores of articles and papers on the various aspects of her poetry that have appeared in literary journals or included in books on Indian writing in English. But the sweep of such publications appear to be very limited. In another words their views about Kamala Das’s poetry seem truncated. In this connection, I would like to cite up a story of six blind men. They went to acknowledge the elephant. Each one touched the different parts of the elephant. They touched the feet, the leg, the ear, the trunk and the tail. Each one was confident in one’s opinion. They quarreled among themselves for the recognition of the elephant. They all were right separately but all were wrong about the complete shape of the elephant
