Aparna Mulberry 10 Personal Facts, Biography, Wiki
A person’s identity is well-rooted in one’s mind rather than what the world classifies them to be.
Aparna Mulberry is an example of this very fact. She is a half-American, half-Chilean woman who was raised in Kerala for 12 years and has carried the culture within her across several continents in due course of her life.
‘Inverted Coconut’ is her Instagram handle which she has chosen deliberately to identify herself. She has been using the platform to stay connected with Kerala and Keralites from every nook and corner of the world.
“Most non-resident Malayalis say that they feel like a coconut – brown outside and white inside. But I felt the exact opposite. Hence, the name for the handle. It is a platform where I interact with all my Malayali friends across the world,” says Aparna.
Within a span of 11 months, precisely starting with the outbreak of the pandemic, Inverted Coconut has crossed 97k followers and has served as a bridge between Aparna and her beloved Kerala.
She celebrates Onam, Diwali, and all things Keralites would do to shower her love to God’s own country.
“It was in February 2020 that I started the page. One day, I just randomly woke at four in the morning. The pandemic was just starting. During that time, I was also planning a trip to Kerala but it did not happen.
And the page just happened and little did I expect it to grow the way it did,” she adds.
She has become a darling of social media and everyone is very inquisitive to know more about her.

Aparna’s parents met in India, fell in love, got married, and headed back to the US where she was born. When she was just three years old, her parents moved to spiritual leader Amritanandamayi’s ashram in Kollam.
Aparna’s mother continues to reside there, along with her daughter-in-law’s mother and is Aparna visits her regularly. Only this year she failed to visit due to the COVID-19 restrictions.
“My parents were searching for a bigger purpose, not a 9-5 job. They wanted their lives to be purposeful. And both of them, separately, found their way to India where they met for the first time,” Aparna Mulberry says.
Her name too comes from the very Ashram where she was nurtured.
“Amma (Amritanandamayi) gave me the name. I was named ‘Saiisha’ by my parents but at the age of six or seven, I went up to Amma and asked her for a name. At the time, she told me to go and come back later, but I was persistent and I kept going behind her.
Finally, she gave me this name; it has a very deep spiritual meaning,” Aparna reveals.
Aparna has received her primary and higher secondary schooling from Amrita Vidyalayam which is a part of the Ashram. It is there that she learned both Malayalam and Sanskrit although it was an English Medium School.
