Raghav has written prequel to her story Sun and Earth – Their Formation

Once there lived Earth and Sun in the dark blue Milky Way. They were best friends. They traveled together, visited other places in the Milky Way. Sun was red and hot and Earth was calm and green.

Venus and Mercury also lived in Milky Way and wanted to the friends with Earth and Sun as well.They tried really hard to become friends with them, but were not successful. Venus and Mercury became very upset and angry and decided to force their wish. They come in between the Sun and the Earth and separated them from each other.

Earth was very sad and seeing this Sun took out a piece of his hair and gave it to Earth. This piece was a red and hot as the Sun. Earth was happy getting this piece and she accepted this gift and kept it with her always. Earth named it “FIRE”.

Fire lived on Earth thereafter.
