I, Somayya Kasani, presently reside at Edmonton, Canada; however, I was born in a village, called Devaruppala in the Warangal District of the Andhra Pradesh State in India. My parents, Sri. Ramayya and Smt. Devamma were agriculturists by profession.
I completed my education from government schools and colleges in Warangal District. On completion of my education, I served as a school teacher for 33 years in Warangal District and loved virtually every minute of it.
I married Vijayalakshmi of Nizamabad, Andhra Pradesh, India. All my three children Aparna, Ajay and Anupama were born and schooled in a village where we lived and worked. And they are now working in Science/Technology fields of their interest after the completion of their education. They married life-companions of their choice.
