Ente Katha

Ente Katha is one of the most controversial and famous autobiographies. Kamala Das has presented her life story in the form of a novel in Malayalam, being forthright and extraordinarily honest throughout.
Summary of the Book
Kamala Das (also known as Madhavikutty and Kamala Surayya) was always outspoken about her experiences as a woman, writer, wife, mother and every other role that she played in life, especially through her writings. Ente Katha was serialized in the now non-operational Malayalam weekly called Malayalanadu in 1972. Kamala Das writes candidly about her marriage, children, extramarital affairs, and her life as a popular and controversial writer. In spite of the autobiography evoking fiercely positive criticism and just as much negative reactions, the publication wasn’t stopped. It has been translated into several other languages.
About Kamala Das
Kamala Das was born in 1934 in the Malabar District, British India. She was the editor of Poet, and the poetry editor of The Illustrated Weekly of India. She penned hundreds of poems and stories in both Malayalam and English. Her columns were famous and widely read in India, through which she addressed a wide spectrum of matters like child care, women’s issues, and politics. She was also the esteemed VC of Kerala Sahitya Akademi, and the President of the Kerala Children's Film Society. Kamala Das was nominated for the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1984. Her works have been translated into several different Indian and foreign languages, including German, French, Russian, Japanese and more. She travelled to different countries to read poetry, including Adelaide Writer's Festival, South Bank Festival, London, and the University of Bonn. Das was honoured with the prestigious Sahitya Akademi Award. In the year 1999, she was yet again caught in a controversy, as she converted to Islam and changed her name from Kamala Das to Kamala Surayya. She passed away in the year 2009, at the age of 75. Some of her most notable works are Sandal Trees, Only the Soul Knows How to Sing, A Childhood in Malabar: A Memoir, and The Kept Woman and Other Stories.
