My Story by Kamala Das

“One’s real world is not what is outside him. It is the immeasurable world inside him that is real. Only the one who has decided to travel inwards, will realize that his route has no end.”

Pg. 103, The Psychoanalyst

“Society can well ask me how i became what i became, although born to parents as high-principled as mine were. Ask the books that I read why i changed. Ask the authors dead and alive who communicated with me and gave me the courage to be myself. the books like a mother cow licked the calf of my though into shape and left me to lie at the altar of the world as a sacrificial gift.”

Pg. 147, Penfriends
