WRITERS DESK WITH Ms.GRACY Held on 20/10/2014
For a while, they were taken aback when they met the author who was familiar to them through the stories in syllabus. However, a flood of questions followed, and Gracy, well-known author, answered them patiently, drawing much from her experiences. Talking about the tales behind her short stories, Gracy told students that she had always wanted to leave the story and its characters at their own pace and a story is born when you put your life experience upside or down in a wonderful language. "As a writer I wanted to write stories that shake hearts. The mental state of a writer will be unique and language will be natural. But she should be aware that no story would exist without logic," she said. Gracy started writing poems before she ventured into short fiction. “I found a writer inside me when I was a very young girl who felt lost when the sky darkened and listened to the soft murmur of countryside streams. The students wanted to know more about woman writing and new woman writing. “When a woman writes, men have some prejudices. Woman writing is about fixing boundaries. For me, woman writing is what woman writes,” says Gracy teacher. She shared with children the experiences that led to the stories- Oru Painkili Kathayude Anthyam, Ormakal Undayirikkanam, Olinjunottakkara. Prof. Abdul Salam, Head, Malayalam Department, Prof. K M Abdul Karim, Principal and professors Shaniba M H and Sreeja S spoke on the occasion.
