“Don’t write in English, they said, English is

Not your mother-tongue.Why not leave

Me alone, critics, friends, visiting cousins,

Every one of you? Why not let me speak in

Any language I like? The language I speak,

Becomes mine, its distortions, its queernesses

All mine, mine alone.” –  from An Introduction, Kamala Das.

 

2. Sarojini Naidu

She Gets 2nd position in our heart for Amazing Women Poets in India
Known as the ‘Nightingale Of India,’ Sarojini Naidu was a freedom-fighter, speaker, manager and poetess. Though she is equally well-known for leading many efforts for the freedom struggle, poetry remained her first passion. Encouraged by her father at a young age, her first work was a poem that was 1300 lines long. When this was presented to the then Nizam of Hyderabad, he was so impressed that she was soon off to study at King’s College on (a sum of money received to help pay for college) from the Nizam’s own school. Her works in English had a clearly Indian soul. She rose to recognition when her collection of poems, The Golden(dividing line/point where something begins or changes), was published in 1905. She followed this with two more collections – The Wizard Mask and A Treasury of Poems.

 

 

“The new hath come and now the old retires:

And so the past becomes a mountain-cell,
Where lone, apart, old hermit-memories dwell
In consecrated calm, forgotten yet
Of the keen heart that hastens to forget
Old longings in fulfilling new desires”- from Past and Future, Sarojini Naidu.

And no one understands my plight.

Only the wounded

Understand the agonies of the wounded,

When the fire rages in the heart.” – a translated version of I am mad with love, Mirabai
