Many of us have had a teacher that we will never forget. Their lessons have left a lasting imprint on our memories, not just for their clarity, but also how they engaged the students. The mystery novel, “To the Sacred Valley with Koko” is written for students from the sixth to twelfth grade. It is a blend of a gripping tale with scientific concepts in medicine and the life sciences to stimulate learning through entertainment.

The four attributes that stand out in the novel are:
2) current ideas in MEDICINE and LIFESCIENCES are contextually integrated into the story,
3) beautifully hand-drawn cartoon illustrations of scenes in the story, and
4) sketches that bring life to scientific concepts.

"To the Sacred Valley with Koko” is a balanced mix of storytelling and discussions on modern concepts in the life sciences to encourage scientific curiosity.

He has published several research articles, and filed patents in the areas of molecular biology, oncology, drug discovery, and biology related technologies. He lectures in colleges and in schools and conducts science workshops for children to promote science in a way that is fun, and easy to learn. The workshops are a huge hit with the kids. It is this interest in education that prompted him to start writing a book series to communicate modern concepts and developments in the life sciences and medicine using ‘mystery fiction’ as the hook to initiate interest in reading the book. This book, ‘To the sacred valley with Koko’, his first, is possibly the first of its kind that discusses science in the context of mystery fiction.
