Abstract

This paper attempts to enquire into the way in which the self and the other are manifested through the signifiers of food. The narration of Komathi, the maid of Lena traces the intricate, complex interweaving of the discourse of the food for the soul with those of stomach which in turn culminates into a discourse of the dynamics of the self both of the narrator and of the narrated.  From ‘Arisi’ to ‘Zigarthanda’ the text is apprehended as the mysterious fusion of the alphabet of cuisine and how the bovine is communicated both as the cause and effect of the   emotional. The paper is intended to throw light on the way in which the awakening of the protagonist’s self is achieved with a sense of completion in the narrative using the alphabet of the soul and of food.

Key words: self, signifiers of food, alphabet
