Biography of Supriya Prathapan

I was born and raised in New Delhi, India. I dabbled with many jobs and finally chose to become a school teacher.Writing is not just a hobby for me, it is a need. It is my biggest stress buster.

Delhi is India in miniature. My existence in this beautiful place has helped me interact with people from different walks of life. The cosmopolitan culture of Delhi 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 person 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!

Beauty And Brains

‘All that glitters is not gold! ’
Yet it is believed and often told,
That ‘A thing of beauty is a joy forever’,
Then why does a beautiful woman need to be clever?

For the lovely Lida, Lord Zeus turned into a swan,
Consequently, the beautiful Helen was born.
She became the cause of the Trojan war,
Alas! The great Greek men thought she was worth dying for.
