‘Memories of childhood’ present to autobiographical episodes. Both are from the lives of women.

The first account is by an American Indian woman. Second account is narrated by a contemporary Tamil Dalit writer. The women belong to two different cultures. Distress and sadness is experience by both the women’s in their early life.
Native Indians don't get respect dignity and importance in America. They are forced to follow their trades tradition and whims. The poor Indian girl was dragged out and tied in a chair and her long and heavy hair is shingled. Bama, on the other hand awakened early to the humanization of having been born in community of untouchables and hence directed all her energy into fighting the injustice of such a system.
