Kamala Das, a contemporary Indo- Anglian women writer, has a feminist ethos in her poetry. She wrote under the pseudonym of Madhavikutty in her mother – tongue Malayalam and as Kamala Das in English. Through her poetry she gives expression to the feelings of love, betrayal and the consequent anguish which she had experienced in her life. Her poetry vividly shows that she lived an unhappy and dissatisfied since her childhood due to patriarchy and gender discrimination. She was amongst those writers who wrote about personal experiences instead of the colonial ones as the time demanded. She was born in a conservative Hindu Nair family but latterly converted to Islam on December 11, 1999 being 65 years old and assumed the name Kamala Surayya.
