Her passion for writing stems from years of proximity with her paternal grandfather, the well-known poet in Telugu, Devulapalli Krishna Sastri. She has to her credits novel, Avanti Kalyanam in Telugu, her mother tongue.

ABOUT THE BOOK:
Megha Pallavan felt fragmentary, incomplete and fortunate. She left her parents and a comfortable life behind in Chennai and moved into a challenging new world in the San Francisco area. She had many new friends around her.
When she felt deeply and wanted to draw on the essence of lifeblood, she relies on Jason Myers, the love of her life. Yet, Jason was not around when she needed him the most. He was so busy traveling around the world.
In an e-mail to her classmate that had seen her grow up, she wrote that she was happy. That was not entirely true. She did not mention that there was a steep mountain of distress atop her fragile sheath of contentment.
Will Megha realize her aspirations?
Megha is a well-written book with a life-changing plot.
Megha Two Worlds Within is a well-written book by Lalitha Ram, it is the mixture of love, life, realization, lessons and much more. The plot is good with the beautiful garnishing of Lalitha's fantastic language and writing skills.
With various twists and turns, secrets and unfoldings the story is interesting with remarkable lessons. The realization that occurs to Megha after 15 years of from where she began towards her life is what made me engrossed in it more and more.
The story would have been more easy and interesting if it was a little bit short and written in a simpler language, which would result in readers to connect with the story more easily.
Also, the cost of the book could have been little pocket-friendly. The book cover is beautifully portrayed with different colors which are perfectly depicting and matching the title and the blurb. It would attract readers and will make them super keen to pick it up at the first place.
Overall it is a must read and I would like to wish Lalitha all the best.
