Meena Kandasamy - Poem by Bijay Kant Dubey

Meena Kandasamy, as a poetess has many a thing in her,
She is a writer, an activist, an actress
And what not,
A writer of protest literature,
First of all, a rebel
Then a feminist,
A Dalit,
A movementeer.

A rebel not idealistic like Shelley
Boisterous against a social order
Hinging upon social injustice and discrimination,
A spokesperson of the have-nots, the downtrodden
Is she a Dalit writer,
She is bent upon taking a revenge
Like Hamlet,
A firebrand writer she.

I do not know, just have felt about her
A persona, a mouthpiece, a protagonist
Rebellious, revolutionary and firey,
Ever ready to revolt and rebel against
A discriminatory social order,
Hinging on injustice and inhuman discrimination,
A poetess social, confessional and revolting.
