Purchase link for her book:

 Prasanna Raghavan is a lover of books, reading and writing.  Recently she published her first eBook-Under the Bakula Tree on Amazon Kindle. When she is not reading a book or busy on her laptop, she is in the kitchen trying the old and new recipes. Her husband is also a lover of cooking and does it in solitary or in her company.  Their latest cooking expeditions include experimenting with air fryer recipes.  Their children gifted her a gadget recently on her birthday.

An educator, she has spent her entire career life in Africa.  Her husband is also a teacher. Both have retired as Heads of Division, she for Physical Sciences and he for Mathematics. They live in Cape Town.

 Creative writing has been her passion since the time she wrote her first story at 7. She could, however, take her passion seriously after she has retired from her regular job. The course she did with All About Writing assisted her to master the story-crafting techniques.  

 She was born and grown in Kerala, India.

She has researched Social Constructivist Maths Education in a maths classroom as part of her master's degree in mathematics education from Rhodes University, Grahamstown, South Africa.  

Her research thesis is available in Global View.

Spend a day with my favourite author

 Spending a day With My Favourite Author The Image is taken from Blog Chatter      I can include a list of authors on my favourites, filter them down to five and then screen them to a final three. The finalists are J M Coetzee, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie and Trevour Noah.       JM Coetzee is the two times Booker Prize winner for his novels, Life &Times of Michael K (1983) and Disgrace in 1999. The theme of Life and Times of Michael K hadn't made sense to me when I read it for the first time. It was a time when I couldn't analyse creative writing beyond the book's pages and that of a great writer like Coetzee.   The novel unfolds the concerns and the dilemma of Michael K, ugly to look at, beset by life conditions he never comprehends and can't control during the times of a fictional civil war in South Africa. Another reason to be fascinated by the two books is the story settings are places I am living or lived.       Disgrace is a suggestive story about post-apartheid

Things I would Like to Work on in the Month of August

  4Things I would like to work on in August Images from my file using Failing to plan things is planning to fail. During my teaching years, I crammed the idea into my learner's minds and mine. Once I retired, I lapsed into not caring about planning things.   The call to write about four things I like to work on in August came as a wake-up call to renew the habit, and I jumped for it. August, in a biblical sense, is the month of beginning things. In South Africa, August celebrates 'women's Month,' to commemorate a historic march of women of all races made on 9 August 1956 against apartheid.  The month of July got stuffed up with book reviews and Insta Reel creations, things I enjoyed much. The beautiful themes and plot developments of the books reviewed afforded me new perspectives, and I have more queued in my reading list. The IG Reels were a thing of technical adventure, a challenge that made me feel stupid in the initial days, and when I called out 'Eu

Arjun Madhavan - the Protagonist of my up-Coming Thriller-Murder at Thampuran Kotta

A 'no' uttered from the deepest conviction is better than a 'yes' merely uttered to please, or worse to avoid trouble -- Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi A-For Arjun #BlogChatterA2Z The image was taken from Thoroughly excited to reveal the protagonist of my upcoming thriller -Murder at Thampuran Kotta, as part of this year's A2Z marathon-the first of its kind I have ever undertaken. His name is Arjun Madhavan--a familiar name among Malayalam speakers. The first post would suffice to present him before you, not a hectic introduction. Then the remaining twenty-five posts to complete the rest of my novel or up to where they take me. This is my second author endeavour- the first is an e-book titled, Under the Bakula Tree, published on a contemporary woman story and a short read--a sisterhood taking root under the patriarchy is the subtitle.   Three-fourths of the thriller I have covered.  It was a group expedition, I reckon, sailing through unfamili
