 Pallavi Kodan, author and a social worker, became a writer at the age of 25.

Pallavi Kodan, author and a social worker, became a writer at the age of 25. She started her career as a school teacher. She used to teach in The Heritage School. Her love for books used to come out in her subject and she used to take storytelling sessions back then.  But she was never satisfied until she picked up a pen and wrote her first book Million Memories which is quite famous among youth.

It takes you through the life journey of three friends, which is nothing less than a roller coaster ride. The book has emotions of love, jealousy, seduction, and anger. But it's a feast for women as it has a woman-centric narrative, as it emphasizes this very attribute- "How a woman should be strong enough to take a stand for herself, for if she doesn't, nobody else will “.

 

When she is not writing she gives her time to NGO- Humans for Humanity where she is the Director. They constantly work for the upliftment of woman. Right from distributing pads they guide them about its importance and even teach them how to make them for future usage.

She has been an inspiration for many people who think marriage comes after you settle in life. She started her career after being married and happily seeks support from everyone around her. She writes about things that needs urgent attention. Inner self, a topic that needs to be highlighted on an urgent basis. She writes about it as there are so many women who struggle to become what they want to be. She wants to be the voice of all the women's power. She believes that “ Nothing changes if nothing changes”.

 

She is working on two new books, one will go under publishing soon, and the other work is in the penning stage. She also wants to write a book of short poems in coming future as well.
