Not Even Censorship Slows This Woman Down – Mohanalakshmi Rajakumar

Mohanalakshmi Rajakumar

From a single woman in search of an identity to a published author, married with two children, tonight’s guest on “The Courage to Change with Lisa Kirchner” found Qatar the ideal place to blossom. Tune in here tonight at 6pm EST to hear Mohanalakshmi Rajakumar's story.

I knew Mohana from my time in Qatar, first in her role at Georgetown University, then when she worked at Bloomsbury Press. More recently I saw her name associated with controversy, because her first paperback, Love Comes Later – a love story set between Doha and Londonwas banned from distribution in Qatar. In light of rejection from the publishing industry and censorship at home, I wondered how she found the courage to keep going. To Mohana this was a no-brainer.

Rajakumar has lived in Qatar since 2005, where she met her husband, had two sons, and became a writer. She's since published eight e-books, including a memoir for first time mothers, a guide for aspiring writers, a short story collection, and a novel about women’s friendships. Her recent books have focused on various aspects of life in Qatar. From Dunes to Dior, named as a Best Indie book in 2013, is a collection of essays related to her experiences as a female South Asian American living in the Arabian Gulf.
