Simi K. Rao was born and grew up in India before relocating to the U.S., where she has lived for several years.

“KHa..n..aK!”


Khanak watched with fascination as Mrs. Bak Bak’s eyes grew wide and round as saucers, and her eyeballs popped out like a constipated frog though Khanak hadn’t ever observed a constipated frog.
