Former teacher launches first book
After a 12-year-long career as a teacher at the Princes Town Senior Secondary School, Narisha Kahn has decided to share her knowledge of the Trinbagonian society. Last Wednesday, Khan launched her first book, Karmic Justice, at a book signing at Nigel N Khan Book Store at Gulf City Mall, La Romain.
Khan was well supported by her family and was pleased with the number of former students patronising her fictional book.
Karmic Justice takes it readers on an emotional trip as, they explore familiar issues that many Trinbagonian would have experienced in their lifetime. Issue such as betrayal of trust and infidelity, and the problems that arise from forced marriages by tradition and religion. Domestic violence and child abuse, psychological blackmail, male emasculation, alcoholism, the trauma of failure, and the rise of women in professional status are also featured in the book.
The excited author said that she was always interested in looking at the sensitive and social issues of T&T and would usually share it with her students. “You know I would be sharing my knowledge and they would say, ‘miss you should write a book you know’. So I decided to take their advice,” Khan said. The Penal born Gasparillo resident said that book only took eight months to write, and revealed that she was already working on another. She said Karmic Justice was good reading for those who wished to explore the many problem face by the people of T&T.
