Soumya is a Masters graduate in gender from Jamia Millia Islamia. She has put her foot down and decided that all other fiction can wait till she has read literature written by Indian womxn authors to her fill. She is fighting and unlearning patriarchy and loves to write on the intersections of art, (pop) culture and gender. Her favourite quote is “... but by god there’ll be dancing.” from ‘My Best Friend’s Wedding’ and she can cook a mean meal!
while the Kamasutra tries to legitimise and establish the hegemony of one form of desire, i.e. heterosexual relations between upper-class men and all women, we see an acknowledgment of non-conforming relationships.
