Troubled Galaxy Destroyed Dreams: Chapter 244
Pune (PTI): Well-known Indian writer Kamala Das Suraiya, who courted controversy with her unorthodox views, died here on Sunday.
She was 75 and is survived by three sons.
The Malayalam writer and poetess, who earned fame for her works in English, breathed her last in a city hospital where she had been admitted on April 18 following a complaint of respiratory distress.
Ms. Kamala, winner of many national and international literary awards, had settled down in the city a few years ago, leading a secluded life.
Known for her frank and explicit expression on matters of sexuality, Ms. Kamala focused on love, betrayal and the resultant agony in her writings that unsettled the orthodox readers.
Ms. Kamala hit the headlines when, though born in a conservative Hindu Nair family in Kerala with a royal lineage, she embraced Islam in 1999 at the age of 65, assuming the name Kamala Suraiya.
The conversion, just as the themes of her stories, generated much heat and dust in social and literary circles.
The writer who loved to tread the unorthodox path, had also made a foray into politics and floated 'Lok Seva Party' aiming at social and humanitarian work, providing asylum to orphaned mothers and to promote secularism. She unsuccessfully contested a Lok Sabha election in 1984.
A prolific author who was widely acclaimed for her short stories and novels in Malayalam, Ms. Kamala also became famous for her poetry in English that won her many international awards.
Her books in English include Summer in Calcutta, The Descendants, The Old Playhouse, Alphabet of Lust, My story, etc.

On the other hand, the government is keen to pass the Right To Education Bill in the budget session of Parliament in July, HRD Minister Kapil Sibal said today.
Once again Blind Nationalism makes the space of Hard Core Hindutva as Universal Society of Hinduism (USH) in a statement from Nevada, USA demanded that Mr. Rudd should immediately tender a formal apology on national television for these incidents. I have already written how War agianst Terror has been converted into DOLLAR HEGEMONY in this divided Bleeding Geopolitics making Indian Ocean Peace zone sick with War and civil War. It also intensified HATRED Campaign against Aboriginal,Indigenous and Minority Communities already being subject to ETHNIC Cleansing by the LPG Mafia!
In the backdrop of racial attacks on Indian students in Australia, a leading Hindu organisation has demanded apology from Prime Minister Kevin Rudd and adequate compensation to the victims. The organisation demanded that Mr. Rudd visit the Royal Melbourne Hospital where victim Shravan Kumar Theerthala is battling for life. To ensure that racial attacks on Indians do not recur, the USH urged that Mr. Rudd should assure Indians and other minorities that urgent measures would be taken to prevent such incidents. The statement has been issued by Rajan Zed who is the President of Universal Society of Hinduism.
Meanwhie, Hundreds of Indian students in Australia have embarked on a peace rally aimed at curbing racist violence. The march comes in response to a recent spate of violent attacks on Indian students.
More than 300 protesters left the Royal Melbourne Hospital on Sunday afternoon. They will march to Parliament house.
The Federation of Indian Students in conjunction with Melbourne University's Graduate Student Association has organised the rally.
Graduate Student Association president Paul Coats called on the Australian Government to immediately implement policy aimed at curbing a growing culture of racial intolerance.
"It was the mission of Rajiv Gandhi that money should go from PM (prime minister) to DM (district magistrate) because the grassroot level organisation is panchayat, which are local level elected bodies," Ms. Banerjee told reporters in Kokata.
The West Bengal government, which has sought Rs 1000 crore as central assistance has, however, opposed the demand and is insisting that funds should be directly given to it.
The Railway minister said that she would have to go to Delhi on Monday, but would monitor the situation from there.
All the six union ministers from her party, Ms. Banerjee said, would submit reports to her on the situation, apart from the zilla parishad and the district magistrate's report.
"After compiling them, I will give a report to the Centre," she said, alleging that the state government had done nothing to mitigate the plight of the affected people.

Meira Kumar, 64, the water resources minister in the new government, is expected to be the Congress choice for the post of the Lok Sabha Speaker, party sources said.

Wild celebrations erupted outside Stalin's residence in the heart of Chennai after Governor Surjit Singh Barnala issued a statement appointing the 56-year-old as deputy chief minister on the advice of Karunanidhi.
Hundreds of DMK cadres including legislators and MPs, converged at Stalin's residence, presenting him garlands, bouquets and shawls. Some touched his feet in reverence.
Many more people celebrated outside, bursting crackers on the streets. Even some police officers came and shook hands with Stalin.
A five-time MP, Meira Kumar won from Sasaram in Bihar, while she had been elected earlier from Uttar Pradesh and Delhi.
She quit the Indian Foreign Service which took her to embassies in Spain, Britain and Mauritius, to take to politics in 1985. A law graduate, Meira Kumar also holds a masters degree in English literature.
She was a cabinet minister for social justice and empowerment in the previous Manmohan Singh government.
The Congress-led United Progressive Alliance (UPA) is readying for the first session of the 15th Lok Sabha from Monday with the formal swearing in of the 543 newly elected MPs. Two days have been earmarked for the procedure that will be followed by the election of the Lok Sabha Speaker and the joint address to Parliament by President Pratibha Patil.
There will be a debate on June 5, 8 and 9 on the President's address after which the Lok Sabha and the Rajya Sabha, which convene on June 4, will pass a motion of thanks before adjourning.
The death toll in the havoc caused by Cyclone Aila rose to 125 Saturday, while there were reports of enteric diseases breaking out in the worst hit South 24 Parganas district
The villagers asked the chief minister why he had come to the block so late. "Why is it that the government has not been able to send relief to us even a week after the cyclone struck?" said a youth when Bhattacharjee reached the office of the block development officer in a large convoy of cars.
The chief minister, however, dealt with the situation in a composed manner and assured the villagers that there would be no dearth of relief material. Bhattacharjee later boarded a launch from Sonakhali and reached Bali-II under the worst-affected Gosaba block.
The chief minister visited a relief camp housed at Adarsha Vidyamandir and spoke to the victims and district officials.
"Everything will be normal soon. Don't worry. We are making all arrangements," the chief minister told the cyclone-hit victims.
During his meeting with officials, Bhattacharjee discussed issues concerning immediate relief and long-term restoration plans with regard to roads, powers and embankments.
The chief minister said his government was trying to ensure that the central government declared the tragedy as a national calamity.
A television channel carried a report that some relief workers were kept confined in a tin room at Sonakhali for hours by the district administration on the plea of the chief minister's safety, but officials denied the report.
"Nothing of that sort happened. The relief workers had taken shelter in the room," said Inspector General of Police (South Bengal) Surajit Kar Purakayastha.
Railways Minister and opposition Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee, however, came down heavily on the state's Left Front government and said the incident showed it was not ready to accept any criticism.
"These poor people were kept confined in a room so that they can't articulate their grievances. They (the government) are afraid of people. They do not believe in democracy and lack a human approach," Mamata said.
So far, 125 deaths have been reported in the cyclone which tore through extensive parts of the state Monday levelling houses, uprooting trees, snapping power cables and leaving a trail of destruction in 13 of the 19 districts.
Nearly 600,000 houses have been fully or partially damaged in the calamity which has affected over six million people.
South 24 Parganas and North 24 Parganas districts have been the worst-hit and hundreds of villages continued to be marooned with salt water intrusion destroying the paddy crops.
Minister of State for Tourism Sultan Ahmed toured the devastated areas in Hooghly and Howrah districts, while Minister of State for Rural Development Sisir Adhikari visited East Midnapore district.
"You hike public investment to the extent that you generate jobs and through that generate domestic demand and that will be the real stimulus. Public investment should be to the tune of at least 10 per cent of GDP.
"That will be about 4,50,000 crore. Unless you plan big, we cannot really beat the depression," CPM Politburo member Sitaram Yechury said.
He said the talk about fiscal concerns in these times of slowdown borders on "foolishness".
"Please put aside concerns on (fiscal) deficits. In March, your industrial growth rate was negative 2.3 per cent. And manufacturing dropped by 3.3 per cent.
"That is where employment is generated and that will be pressure on this government also in this budget," Yechury said, adding that fiscal deficit could be taken care of when the economy starts growing to eight per cent.
