Description

About the Book

A feeling for Feminism is a collection of stories written by V.K. Subramanian, which reflects his empathy for women, especially the women of India.

 

In these stories, various feminine facets are dealt with understanding and insight: women as affectionate sisters, tender, loving mothers, devoted wives and women facing the brutal realities of life: betrayal, disappointment and ingratitude.

The reader will enjoy meeting these women characters created by Subramanian (all drawn from life): Lali, Kamala, Amba, Alamelu, Ranee, Janaki, Susheela, Shobhana, Sunanda, Rajee, Rita, Lakshmi, Meena, Leela, Aarti, Roopa, Lekha, Reena, Parvati and Supriya.

A feeling for Feminism will provide entertaining reading for all. For feminists it will be soothing nectar. For those who live outside India, the book will be a revealing guide to the social mores of India.

To movie makers and television producers, it will be a veritable treasure house of ideas.

Preface

 

I did not realize that I was a feminist until I was told by my eldest son that my stories reflected a deep empathy for women and I was out and out a feminist. This gave me the idea of going through all the stories. I had written and verifying whether my son's remarks were ture.

I realized that my stories were mainly centered around women-the women of India-and I had dealt with a wide variety of feminine facets: solace of sibling affection, tenderness of maternal concern, anger of unrequited love, agony of loneliness, the torment of sin, unbelievable capacity for forgiveness and forbearance and the yearning for motherhood and an unflinching faith in loved ones.

Relationship with men have proved problematic for many of the women in my stories and all of them coped with the situation to the best of their abilities.

I have referred to some of the women in our epics and myths to indicate that the problems we face today existed even in the ancient past.

Sigmund Freud once said: "After thirty years of research I have not been able to find out what a woman wants."

I, however, do know: what a woman wants is love, understanding and affection and if she misses out on these, she becomes a problem for herself and for society.

Years ago, I wrote a poem, titled "Woman" which I reproduce below:

"Unbridled passion's victim

Wilful desire's doll
Nature's slave,
She carries
The world's cradle.
For her, in her,
Battles rage
And to her, come
Betrayal, cruelty,
Yet she lives
In hope and love,
Ennobling this spirit of Woman."

Mine may be a reanimated, idealized view of womanhood, especially womanhood of India, but I can reassure my readers that all the women characters in my stories have been drawn from life and there has been no attempt at exaggeration or delineation of the incredible and improbable.

Having lived for many long years in America, I am nostalgic about the devotion, love and affection with which the Indian wife, mother, sister and daughter pamper the Indian male.

The men of India have not always treated our women of India and an apology on behalf of the erring men.

Testimonials

Very easy to buy, great site! Thanks
Ilda, Brazil
Our Nandi sculpture arrived today and it surpasses all expectations - it is wonderful. We are not only pleasantly surprised by the speed of international delivery but also are extremely grateful for the care of your packaging. Our sculpture needed to travel to an off-lying island of New Zealand but it arrived safely because of how well it had been packaged. Based upon my experience of all aspects of your service, I have no hesitation in recommending Exotic India.
