Ishara Maharaj

Born in Durban, Ishara Maharaj graduated with degrees in Linguistics and Organisational Psychology from Rhodes University and UCT. She currently resides in Cape Town with her husband and daughter where she is working on her first start-up venture to better connect youth with employment opportunities. Recognising the need for relatable fiction in the South African market, Maharaj wished to share a story of the South African Indian woman growing up in the modern-day context. Namaste Life is her debut novel which was borne out of her love for magical realism, expressed through her character’s interpretation of Hindu mythology and dreams.
