TO BE FREE Kozhikode
TO BE FREE
" I often wonder where glamorous people go when they are wing-tired, as birds go at dusk to roost. Which treetop gives them rest and tranquility of age ?" The words of Kamala Suraiyya still echoes in my ears. I heard those words years back when I met her in Kochi which is near to my district, Kozhikode. Her words were smeared in the footsteps of death, mortality, values of society, boasting of culture and so on. Again I realized the meaning of her words when she was leaving her residence in Kochi for Pune on a wednesday January 2007. "I cannot manage on my own now. My sons are there and let them take care of me now," she said. There was a small gathering at her residence to see her off. That was the last time I saw her alive, India's one of the well known Poets in English. She was knows as Kamala Das too. She was shortlisted for Nobel Prize in literature in l984. In simple language she depicts the realities of life with tearful dreams and deep insights. That is her contributions to the world literature.In her writing she is free as a falcon which a good writer need to be, I felt. Again I remember her words: "goodbye editors,goodbye fans, goodbye critics, here I go slipping out of your world into mine to be free, to be free as a falcon flying over the rocky mountains," she passed away leaving behind beautiful petals of artistic grace and elegance for generations to come. She died on 31 May 2009 in Pune. She was born on 31 March 1934 at Punnayurkulam, Kerala, India to the reputed Malayalam Poet Balamaniyamma and V M Nair. She was known Madhavikutty too,different names as our different feelings.
