The poem ‘My grandmother’s House’ is written by Kamala Das, a popular Indo- Anglian poetess who wrote both in Malayalam and English. The poetess’s feminine sensibility comes out beautifully in all her poems. The poem reveals her painful and unfulfilled desire to visit her grandmother’s house of which she has beautiful and everlasting memories. The poetess is shocked to see the house in ruins and suffers silently while going around the house and remembering her childhood days. The intensity of her grief is beyond repair. As a young woman today, she is sad because of her loveless marriage and in her frustration, she begs for love at strangers’ doors in order to compensate her grandmother’s love.
