Seeing in Gestalt

C S Lakshmi THIS is in response to the comments on my article 'Mother, Mother-Community and Mother-Politics in Tamil Nadu' (EPW, October 20-27, 1990). I have read the comments of V Geetha (EPW, February 16) and Pandian and others (EPW, April 20) with interest and care because the critiques have come from a quarter whose opinions I value personally. My paper has been suffering from a severe bias against the Dravi- dian Movement in general and with a most pronounced bias against the Self Respect Movement. My political project has been seen as one intent on deliberately suppressing information and distorting history in the name of women's studies. These are very serious allegations because the purpose of women's studies is to add new perspectives to history, not to distort it.
