The theme of the poem is one’s search for identity. First the thematic concerns begin from the speaker searching for political space and defining postcolonial crisis in India regarding language.
Then the poem’s theme proceeds into the despair one faces as a woman since childhood, the role which she is dictated by the society to play. The longing and loss of love is also a theme in the poem. It ends with the assertion of individual identity.
