The Subaltern Precincts of 'Kakkukali' by Francis Norona

Author(s) Sony J.
Country India
Abstract This paper attempts to establish that Kakkukali' (Hop-Scotch) , a short fiction in Malayalam by Francis Norona is a proof of the existence of subaltern consciousness, praxis and agency. Mainstream historians and narrators have systematically submerged the social, political and cultural contributions of the subaltern communities into the larger rubrics like nationalism, freedom fight, feminism, marxism etc. Latin Catholic community ,a subaltern community in Kerala is represented in the story mapping the culture of a community through its language, life style and the way the main character constitutes the meaning of life.
Keywords 1.Subaltern communities ---(Literally Sub+Altern=Under Another) Refers to those minorities that are on the margins of the society. It is generally understood that their contributions to the cultural domain is meager and therefore their visibility in academia is almost nil. 2. Praxis--The term in cultural studies refers to the practice of anything based on an episteme/ideology /paradigm etc.
