  • A Short but Sweet Memoir About the Life Adventures of a Woman Now in Her 80’s - Be Inspired to Embrace Change and Keep Moving Forward!

    Jaya’s story is one of inspiration, showing that no matter what age you are, there is always something new to explore.

    Jaya Baleswari Ramachandra has lived through a lot of changes in her 80 years. This book is a record of her memories of growing up, and building her life in Ceylon, and then relocating and living her present life in a new country. Jaya reflects on life in Singapore, giving readers a unique perspective on how two developing countries with ethnically diverse populations took different trajectories over the decades; one fostering religious harmony and enjoys prosperity while the other fanned racial divisions and faces bankruptcy today. She is never afraid to speak her mind, and though times have changed and many things have come and gone, the one aspect that’s never changed about her is her willingness to speak her mind especially about the unjustness Ceylon Tamils face in their own country, about challenges of married life and facing a major health crisis at 40. Jaya’s story is one of inspiration, showing that no matter what age you are, there is always something new ahead to explore, enjoy and expand one's learning.
