Abstract

There have been many autobiographies written so far. At a certain stage in life when a person feels that he or she has enough to share with the world and want people to know about the learning they had, a decision of writing a memoir is taken. Here we are going to talk about one such exceptional writer whose bold and unfiltered writing style has shunned the Indian critics and has made all of us to ponder on the biases of patriarchy. And she is none other than Kamala Das who brought a revolution in the writing industry with her honest confessions. This paper would talk about the portrayal of women in her book My Story where she has shared her lifetime experiences through this biography. Her experience as an Indian woman has been full of disappointments which she has explained through her creative writing style. The women in her writings have been portrayed as an object for men who are meant to have a purpose or use without any soul or desires. The expectations of society from a woman and the burden of those expectations have been explained in her book My Story.
