I was born in Johore in Malaysia . I had my secondary education in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. After my father's death, I returned to India With my mother and three younger brothers.
I am a Master's in English Literature and I have travelled widely and worked in Ethiopia, Africa, maldives. The experiences I had in malaysia, ethiopia, Africa and Maldives are reflected in my writings.The collection of poems " Poems That Thrill" can easily captivate the minds of the readers as they are true incidents. Moreover the poems could enthrall the university and college students. They would be a valuable addition to enhance the enjoyment of poems for students who do not easily take into poems because they are unintelligible and not easily understood. But this poems are written in a simple style which students will enjoy reading.
Award received for my short story"hijacking That Failed" which was published by the curriculum department, Ministry of Education, Ethiopia in 1984.

2) "Poems That Thrill" ( poems of Wonderland) by Raghavan Jayaprakash
( ISBN: 978-1-4489-2667-1) Published by Publish America.
Most of the poems have an autobiographical touch in them. The experiences which I had in the countries like Africa, Malaysia, Maldives provided the subject matter for the poems. The first poem " My Dearest " was written when I felt lonely without my wife in Maldives.
The poems that refer to the sea, the fish "Tuna" and "tsunami" are connected with my life in Maldives.
The African village and life are depicted in some poems. They were my experiences while I was an expatriate teacher.
The poem on " Orang Utan" was my experience in malaya.
Then the thoughts racing in my mind ever since childhood are depicted in some poems where I have not found any solution to the mystery of life and the Almighty Power which is felt but not seen.
I hope that my poems give a thrill when it is read by readers.
