Brilliance Unlimited

Bama Faustina has earned a formidable reputation in the 15 years she has been writing... A short and blunt autobiography, "Karukku'' in 1992, a collection of short stories, "Kisumbukkaran'', and "Sangati'', a novel. All of which are available in translation: Karukku from Macmillan, Harum-Scarum Saar from Women Unlimited, and Sangati from OUP. All available on our site, naturally.

As a spokeswoman for her age, for Dalits, and for women, Bama has emerged as a mind that should be listened to. Read an interview with her in The Hindu. Its a bit dated, but still worth a read.
