'Am enraptured': Chandramathi

Chandramathi has travelled down the path of dark humour less taken by women writers in Malayalam. She considers the best of her oeuvre to be the initial clutch of 20 stories under the name of Chandrika, though she gained more recognition in her later avatar as Chandramathi. She touches on candid writing, the early influence of Kakkanadan, Mukundan & Narayana Pillai, her father’s formative & later her family’s support, the possibility of using sarcasm as a facade, ‘women writing’ used as a dismissive labelling tool, the second coming after 18 barren years, recovery from cancer and writing on it, which instilled hope in others in ‘Mathrubhumi News’ programme ‘Meet the person’.
