S ,the famous communist leader, who pioneered for the liberation of namputiri women among the namputiri youths. C and 5th Cent A. For her concerns of feminism are such issues. Kunhiraman Nair.
In order to marry off the daughter ,a father would marry a young girl from the otherside. The opinions of the girls were never considered , of course when a muussampuuri the eldest Nampuutiri brings another girl ,he has to get the consent of the existing elder wife ,but quite often ,it was obtained under threat or coercion.
In case, the parents were not able to get a proper alliance ,they were forced to marry off to distant places such as Sirsi, Mangalore or Coimbatore and sometimes have ended up as prostitutes as depicted in the short story of V. Teeti was always under the tutilege of her brother Mr. She comes from more enlightened house,where women were permitted to read ,though economically not to that extent of her husband. When teeti returns to her house ,on hearing from somebody she wears modern blouse ,the women folk of the house breaks open her trunk box and see whether she has blouses stitched ,which clearly shows that they were opposed to the dramatic changes taking place in their society.
It is sometimes seen that women are the enemies of women in the developmental process. Of course there were also several Namputiris ,who lived up to the ideals and lived a life of dignity and grandeaur and extensively contributed to knowledge.
Saraswathiyamma It is necessary to understand and define what is exactly feminism or feminist writing. The best example would be to concentrate on the writings of Ms.
It is stated in Chandrika She was the one who added a chapter for women writers of Kerala in Malayalam literature.
It is realization of any women writer, who would be rereading with a feminist outlook. She has established as a turning point in Malayalam literature. Probably it is the social situation, which prompted her to come to a realization on this aspect. At the age of seventeen, she lost her father and she had to face the world outside without the shadow of her father. It is at that time without the support of a male progeny, she had to face the outside world, a world of men, she realized the limitations of a woman.
Those days, it was a world of men. Men can do anything. Ladies can do nothing. It was a state, if only they could succumb to the dictums of men that women can live.
Ladies have to stand in a low pedestal. Her lady characters could not be suppressed and confined to the inner chambers of a house and her characters have lived at their own will and wish and she had protested all forms of oppression and suppression.
Before the thoughts of feminism had established as a thought process ,she had given a clarion call about the indignities women underwent and all virtuous qualities have been personified through her characters. The male protagonist ,Krishnankutty ,sees her as a personification of pride, arrogance etc. Here, Rajalakshmi proves that due to the arrogant male domination even personal relations within the family have been mutilated. Instead of the natural and expected healthy man and woman relationship with in a family, it appears a Lord and slave relation comes into force and Rajalakshmi establishes that men presumes to think that they have a superordinate relation and women, a subordinate relation instead of an equitable relation with in a family.
In case, if a girl protests against this set up ,she is almost treated as an outcaste. She noted in her suicide note that let her put an end to her writings ,so she would not be a botheration to others. Because ,if she lives ,she would continue to write and thus Malayalam lost one of the finest creative writers. On she committed suicide. Recently , Sarala Bhai has elaborately studied in her Ph. D thesis on the awareness of death and philosophy of life in the works of Rajalakshmi. She was born on 31st March, in Malabar in Kerala.
She is the daughter of V. Nair and the famous Malayalam poetess,Smt. Belonging to an illustrious family of Nalappat,well known for their literary contribution ,she was married to k.
Madhava Das at the tender of age fifteen. She was well known for her poems in English ,to Non-Malayalees as well a Malayalees. But she is well known in Kerala for her short stories and her autobiographical sketch, ente katha and later translated into English by the writer herself in ,the epoch making and path breaking writer she was and stood for the values, she held until her death.
It got the attraction of the world.
It got the attention of the world and was translated into 15 languages. She was forthright in picturising female sexuality in relation with male sexuality or in isolation ,even speaking for hermaphrodites, homosexuality, lesbianism in its naked form without any inhibition or hypocrisy.
It appears that there was no writer before her or after her ,who could pen such issues with great concern and so succinctly and at times poignantly. In an interview given by Smt.
Madhavikkutti to Sri. Ramachandran ,when asked to comment on her concerns of feminism that can be read through her poems and storiesand when it was remarked to her that her statements are critical of feminism. Feminism ,as the westerners see it is different from the feminism I sense within myself.
Western feminism is an anti-male stance ,I can never hate the male because ,I have loved my husband and I still love my children, my sons. And I think from masculine company ,I have derived a lot of happiness. So I will never be able to hate them.
Most of the feminists ,I met outside the country were lesbians-out and out lesbians. I do not think ,I am a lesbian. I tried to find out. I experiment with everything. I tried to find out ,if I were lesbian, if I could respond to a woman. I failed , I must speak the truth.
I believe that we must abandon a thing ,if it has no moral foundation ,whether it is belief , a political system or a religious system Indian literature, A society with such high rate of Literacy and all the social indices are high in comparision with other states, how could such unholy incidents happen. These issues are much reflected in the stories of Smt. Let us examine one story for exemplification.
Though the theme is subtle ,but it has deep ramification as Madhavikkutty sees it. The views of Prema Jayakumar ibid: It is not that they are antagonistic to men, that it is part of humanism and uphold humanity to its highest order.
Among human beings, one could not see the half side of humanity. They become intolerant to the views of the women folk that Madhavikkutty gets highly perturbed on the plight of women.
On surveying the situation, he was not impressed and at the end of the story, informs them that he is already married and has children. Through this story she brings to the fore ,the agonies of parents and girls to find a proper match and the mental agonies the girls have to surmount ,when it comes to the question of marriage.
Quite often the parents and elders of a family in an Indian set up are a worried lot that their girl child is not in a position to get married to a suitable person of her choice or wish ,but have to succumb to the pressures of the parents or to their dislike. Here the independence of the girl is put to acid test and quite often ends in marriages not true to expectations of the girl. Indirectly the young man is at liberty to choose from a variety of choices , as if in a cattle market,which are displayed in front of him.
Truly in this story ,the young man was not married and he bluffs to the ladies that he was married.
He was in search of a young woman true to his dispensation ,but he could not find. It underlines the point that very often , men who are in search of a bride, actually goes out with such carefree attitude ,as if going to a cattle market and the helplessness of a young girl ,agonizingly waiting to get married and most cruel ,if her looks are not up to the mark,for no fault of hers, she has to suffer the ignominy and nobody bothers about the look of a man, his education or his other virtues.
Even if ,it is of low levels ,they are not serious issues worth considering.
So, Madhavikkutty analyses such issues in various angles. For her concerns of feminism are such issues.
Sarah Joseph In the context of a subjective analysis of post modernism ,it can be said to a certain extent that the matters dealing with Feminism, form one of the important matter and the crux of the issues related to it, as quoted by Maya At times she traversed on paths not tread by other women writers and which was unpalatable to a majority of people ,who have never heard or familiar with such issues and made literature as a means to achieve and a weapon ,which was used effectively.
Those sections of society, which were critical of it, were only the dominant males, who were satisfied with appreciation of the elite class and not bothered of the stark reality and social concerns and they stated that these are only mere slogans of the female elk.
Through her female characters, she was able to paint a new picture ,which kerala women were unfamiliar. The new generation writers on feminism: In a vast literature and in a brief paper of this sort, it is very difficult to write on all writers and so I have highlighted only the most significant of them.
This may have limitations ,which would be taken up later. There are several others ,who deals with feminism from a modern perspective such as Gracy, Ashita, Gita Hiranyan, Chandramati etc. S and Indu Menon stand out.
Maya ibid concludes in her article, if women writers sincerely make efforts in bringing out the female characters, the issues on sexuality could be dealt with properly. But, of course, while dealing with such issues ,it has to be dealt with a proper sense of responsibility and the need is to muster courage in executing it. In the post modern literature, feminism forms one of the issues and may be the pertinent issue in a globalised world and other issues such as protection of environment, deforestation ,dalit issues etc are equally significant.
Feminism in a globalised world is equally the concern of the younger generation of women writers. As a consequence of globalization, family structure is getting transformed ,the work culture and work ethics are all getting transformed to such a large extent.
In this context ,morality as a serious issue is cropping up. Among the feminist oriented writers, Sitara. Meera, Priya. There are no concealment of sex and open writings on homosexuality, lesbianism in their stories. The moot question is whether literature , per se, has also become a commodity, as literature can be written according to the needs of the society.
In conclusion one could say that Malayalam literature has made an impact in the lives of women in kerala to a larger extent , but lot needs to be done due to the double pronged approach of the Malayalees. Though one professes for anti dowry system, but the maximum dowry is given and taken in Kerala and the proliferation of the jewellery shops and the demand for gold have been highest in kerala.
Though we dream of casteless,religionless,egalitarian society, the reality is on the contrary and the moot question is where are we heading for?. The incidence of atrocities against women and girl children are on the rise. How safe are our women and children?. Kerala,inspite of being highest literate state ,how all these atrocities are happening? In truth ,in reality, it is a clear no, after a lapse of 64 years after first enactment of this drama.
They have decided to boycott this custom and started wearing blouse,which was considered as affront to their community. In case ,if chastity of a Namputiri women is suspected ,then they are ostracized and publically ,she would be cross examined. There are 12 such fictions altogether.
