UA-135136427-1 Sohan Koonar

Sohan Koonar

Sohan has lived on four continents: Asia, Africa, Europe and North America. A physiotherapist by training, a founder of a multi-clinic company, and an inventor with international patents,

 

Sohan's hobby of story-telling has won him the Judges Choice Award in the Toronto Star Short Story Contest, and the first Burlington Library Literary Excellence Award. His self-published novel, Karam's Kismet, drew mentions in sixteen USA dailies and periodicals. This, along with advice from novelist Naomi Regin to "write what you know best," inspired Paper Lions, a novel based on his own experience as a Sikh in changing times.

 

Paper Lions will be published in Canada (Mawenzi House) and India (Speaking Tiger) in July, 2019. He visits his ancestral village, Kot Gangu Rai, India, every two years and finds inspiration in its rural culture, dating back many centuries. Punjab is an unexplored subject in English literature, while Punjabi is the eleventh most popular language in the world with 150 million speakers who call it their mother tongue. Sohan's work gives a much needed voice to this underrepresented, wonderfully rich culture.
