Biography of Supriya Prathapan
I’m into education. Was born and raised in Delhi, which is India in miniature. It’s my existence in this beautiful place that has made me a humanist which in turn has had a deep impact on the way I write. My educational background has trained me to think in English (the Indianized version) . I love Hindi but like most Delhiites, my Hindi is a confused mixture of many Indian languages. So, can’t write in Hindi. However my knowledge of Hindi and my Indian sensibilities never cease to meddle with my English. For a creature like me who prefers opening her mouth only to teach (for which I’m paid) , writing is important.And I have chosen English as the medium because it is the only language through which I can express myself and I like moulding it to suit myself. Hope you like my work!
