Kamala Das' play with religion

Kamala Das’ play with her identity is very much evident in her play with the religion too says Dr. Meena T. Pillai, Associate Professor, Institute of English in her paper. Using an identity based politics, the speaker says that, Das critiqued the very same notion of identity, parodying any attempt to present women as a coherent group which would only be an unwitting regulation and reification of gender binaries. She thus exposes and de-rationilses the social hegemonies of religion and culture that both constructs and regulates the norms regarding the natural gender identity of men and women.
