Coming from a Nair family, that is also said to have its roots in royalty, this decision of Kamala came as shocker. That bit irked me a little as no one will make anyone’s dreams a reality.

Am I far-fetched by pointing out this. And by her own admission she has included a fair number of fictional elements in her autobiography. Who was madavikutty scared of putting down on paper exactly what she had done in life and what she thought of her husband and various other relations are were thrust on her Thanks for telling us about the problem.
