Ponnagaram (Pudumaipithan Short Story) & A mother living in a very poor (oppressed) community has no money even to buy the milk porridge that her battered husband Murugesan wants. For that she goes with someone who has been lusting after her for a long time and loses her virginity. She gets three & quarters of a rupee for it. The story ends in a mocking tone about the concept of chastity adopted by the ancients. But with the subtext of the Dialogical theory it seems that there is no room for such a count. We can go into the article assuming that women from oppressed communities also have chastity.
