Unreal human in real world portrayed in the poems of Kamala Das


R Prigya, Dr. P Suresh

Humanism is a joyful lively alternative to the religion that believes in the supernatural element called God. Humanists believe that this is the only life in which we have knowledge that we owe to ourselves and to the people in this fragile planet to survive. They take responsibility for their own life and these are new adventures, new knowledge, new discoveries and exploring new options of life. Instead of running after the answers for the questions of life inside the so called societal way, humanist search it in his own open-ended way with his unique ideas and he discovers the essence of life. But in today's scenario, humanism failed in the fakeness called technology and a new world of sophisticated life. Men started to run after false things leaving their humanism behind. Kamala das was always portrayed as a feminist and the writer who openly condemns male and their behavior with women especially on sexual note and was critically condemned by many writers and media. But rather than feminism her poems portrays humanistic perspective too which was never noticed or identified yet. This study tries its hand on spotlighting the humanistic perspective and concepts hidden in the poems of this realistic writer.

Her poems were always seen in feministic perspective, in which other concepts get hidden. So, this study focuses the humanistic view in these poems.
