Chatsworth residents came out in their numbers to meet South African author Nivashni Nair Sukdhev on Saturday, 26 September. Publishers Micro Mega Publications hosted the author at the iconic Chatsworth Centre, south of Durban for a special meet and greet event with her fans.
The award-winning journalist documented her Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) journey in her book ‘What’s on my mind? Making Babies’. Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a hormonal disorder common among women of reproductive age. Women with PCOS may have infrequent or prolonged menstrual periods or excess male hormone (androgen) levels. The ovaries may develop numerous small collections of fluid (follicles) and fail to regularly release eggs. Speaking about her infertility journey, Nair Sukhdev shares the trials and tribulations that she and her husband Rohan went through, which resulted in a successful pregnancy.
Here are some highlights from the meet and greet with Nivashni Nair Sukdhev have a dekko (look) here,
Whenever people heard my story or saw my Facebook posts, they would comment “You should write a book” but I never took it seriously until earlier this year when I met a nurse, who had tears in her eyes when she heard my story. She was about to start her journey and was in awe of my determination, strength and the hope that I had given her. She said, “You should write a book.”Nivashni Nair Sukdhev
Speaking about the publisher, Sukdhev said, “I met Anivesh Singh from MicroMega Publications a few years ago via a mutual friend. When I decided to write a book this year, I knew he would be the best publisher to approach as he is committed to the advancement of literacy in SA as well as dedicated to helping tell important life-changing stories.”
