About the Author:
It’s been a whirlwind of events since 2005 when R R Pravin first started writing for his school. From a small town writer, Pravin went on to collect multiple literary awards over the course of his writing career and has gone on to be nominated as a finalist in international competitions such as the Indie Excellence Awards and most recently, the International Book Awards in 2012. This time, the author returns with one of his most interesting works yet – a compilation of his best works from the time he started writing till today.
A clever mélange of a wide diversity of styles, Pravin successfully marries the polar ends of writing by combining soulful literature with his contemporary raw words. Drawing inspiration from local legend, Catherine Lim’s earlier collections, this short story compilation is a first and hopefully not the last from this talented gem. A well-crafted chef d’oeuvre, Eyes of A Broken Warrior & Other Short Stories, promises to strike a chord with readers from all walks of life. With stories that sympathise with a tragic heroine to stories that portray the ugly nature of humanity, there is a surprise in store awaiting all readers. Without doubt, a revitalized departure from his previous works, Eyes of A Broken Warrior & Other Short Stories is out of its league for an author this young. Pravin adopts the persona of a broken warrior who shares his or her experiences throughout the novel.
From the unforgettable début, African Girl (2008) and the political thriller, When Angels Bleed &
Devils Lie (2009) to his first ever children’s horror novel, Phantom of Keys (2011), Eyes of A Broken Warrior & Other Short Stories celebrates survivors and role models across the world who have influenced Pravin’s life in one way or another. To date, this novel is Pravin’s most intimate novel with powerful autobiographical elements, honouring his late father and people who have been quintessential to his life. Besides lapsing into philosophical moments, a couple of short stories in this collection are odes to his medical knowledge which is a pleasant surprise. This can only be expected as Pravin journeys on, one step closer to fulfilling his dream to become a doctor someday.
“Wow, it’s been a hurricane since everything started but at this point of time, my writing only longs for readers to feel the intensity of its imagery and the strength of its symbols. Looking back at my favourite short stories, I had a great time picking out the ones to die for and I hope you will enjoy them as much as I did. There is so much raw emotion, unembellished, especially for you to see the real me. My wish for you is to be inspired.”
A native of Singapore, Pravin is currently pursuing Medicine at the National University of Singapore.
