Caste, Gender and Sexuality: On the Figure of The Dalit Woman in P. Sivakami’s Fiction

Kiran Keshavamurthy, South and Southeast Asia Studies

9/8/10 CRG Forum: Violence, Gender, and the Construction of Communities in the 20th Century Indian Novel
"Caste, Gender and Sexuality: On the Figure of The Dalit Woman in P. Sivakami’s Fiction ," Kiran Keshavamurthy, South and Southeast Asia Studies

The narratives of P. Sivakami’s novels The Grip Of Change(1989) and Author’s Notes: Gowri (1999) critique the sexualized and supposedly violable caste body of the dalit woman. In The Grip of Change the battered body of the dalit woman frames the opening scene; her past is constituted by her widowhood that in some sense makes her a ‘surplus’ or ‘sexually available’ woman subject to sexploitation by her caste Hindu landlord and harassment by her in-laws; the assault on her by caste Hindu men owing to her apparent sexual/social misdemeanor.
