Aurora Mizutani born Dupelola Osaretin Ajala (AKA - L. M. Data, AKA - D. A-Gravill) is the daughter of Moshood Adisa Olabisi Ajala. 

An Italian national, Aurora Mizutani is the founder of Ajala Legacy Forum Publishing House and the author of "Children of the Cult", “Easy Japan”, “Tourists in Japan”, “Giappone Turismo”, “Resolving Gender Inequality”, "An African Abroad", and “Little Boy and Mr Scary Snake”, written under her previous pen name DA Gravill.

Blogger Aurora Mizutani is an English Literature and Creative Writing graduate of the London Metropolitan University and an alumna of Kansai Gaidai University in Osaka, Japan. 

Fascinated with books about historical practice, elite power, art, political smoke screens, faith, philosophical dogma and the pursuit of endless knowledge, L. M. Data’s narrative directly relates to the human experience. 

As Student Union President at City & Islington College, L. M. Data was introduced to Her Royal Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Phillip, Duke of Edinburg.

AT THE TIME, L. M. Data also met Boris Johnson, mayor of London and collaborated with Jeremy Corbin on several college enterprises. L. M. Data currently resides in Japan with her Japanese husband.

Aurora re-published the works of her father Olabisi Ajala and established the Ajala Legacy Forum Publishing House in 2022. 


The re-publication of “An African Abroad” by the late Olabisi Ajala by the company is considered a significant reference for travel writers from West Africa and other countries. 


Aurora Mizutani, like her father, has written a book titled "An African Abroad," which is her autobiography.


Over the last two years, Aurora has released a variety of books. 


These include public domain classics and around nine titles that she has written herself. 


Her works cover a range of genres such as literature, criticism, political science, philosophy, anthologies of short stories, and multilingual travel guides.


Ajala Legacy Forum produced “Easy Japan,” a satirical travel guide to Japanese culture. The book was published in Japanese, English, and Italian in 2022.


Unlike my father’s remarkable, numerous achievements, I have had memorable encounters with a handful of heads of state. 

Moshood Adisa accomplished a challenging task by travelling to more than seventy countries on a moped and meeting with heads of state, to name a few of his recorded adventures. 

If he had been caught, my father’s ordeal would have been physical in the form of possible torture and brutal imprisonment. 

Moshood Adisa eluded imprisonment in Russia, perhaps even the dreaded Gulag.

It has been said that Adisa died in poverty. 

That depends on one’s definition of wealth. 

Adisa died leaving behind around a dozen children. 

My father wanted to ensure that at least one of his offspring would carry his legacy. 

Moshood Adisa, a true pagan, had the foresight and wisdom to understand that earthly riches are just that. 

Earthly riches. 

Arguably, as Adisa died with the knowledge of true freedom, I dispute the assumption that he died in poverty. 

What freedom? 

You'll need to read on to find out.

Adisa must have had a complete understanding of the game ‘Monopoly’. 

When one has finally mastered the game ‘Monopoly’, they learn that reaching their objective is futile. 

That is to say that when the game is over, all proceeds inevitably go back into the box. 

The bottom line is that one cannot take the money, or anything else, to the afterlife. 

The Egyptian Pharaohs died wealthy. 

They buried their vessels and riches in crypts. 

These riches were excavated by archaeologists and are now on display worldwide. 

Moshood Adisa had the foresight to spend his money on this earth, as it’s apparent that we cannot take it with us. 

Adisa left behind his scions and his written legacy, the true treasures of this material world.

I persist in my unwavering belief that Moshood Adisa died a wealthy man indeed within this reality.

The story "Little Boy and Mr Scary Snake" was written by Aurora Mizutani and originally published in 2012-2013, under the pen name D. A-Gravill.

The story "Little Boy and Mr Scary Snake" follows a child who faces his fears and learns to do the right thing. 

Little Boy, the main character, demonstrates immense bravery in the face of adversity.

Throughout the story, Little Boy encounters fear, ridicule, and disbelief from well-meaning adults in his life, who are identifiable by their descriptive names. 

The story depicts a coming-of-age journey for the child.

As the story unfolds, Little Boy confronts difficult situations and undergoes significant thought processes. 

He experiences frustration and fear of not being believed when he tries to express his concerns about Mr Scary Snake to adults who fail to understand him. 

Little Boy's determination, values, courage, resilience, sense of justice, and finally trust enable him to overcome his fears and prevail.

"Little Boy & Mr Scary Snake" was written to help children better understand the world around them. 

Through an engaging narrative, the book encourages children to participate and empathize with the character of Little Boy. 

The story also provides an opportunity for children to improve their communication skills and learn new words through context. 

The book is designed to help adults better understand children's feelings and behaviours and to promote emotional well-being. 

By addressing the topic of single-parent families, the book aims to help children relate and empathize with the main character and his surroundings.

Overall, "Little Boy & Mr Scary Snake" aims to empower children to express their emotions and overcome adversity, with the help of individual counselling, group therapy, and support from parents and schools.

This 2022 Guide is written in Japanese and English by the author Aurora Mizutani and translated into Italian by Giorgio Fragiacomo.


It is an inspiring, compact satirical guide to Japan in the 21st century, and is accompanied by stick figure illustrations that tantalize and invite the reader into a world of light-hearted and whimsical humour.


The formulation of the guide offers levity and does not follow any chronological order, while its non-linear approach compels us into its cheerful wandering.


This work nonetheless provides some insight into Japanese culture, explores native practices, and briefly points to new social norms imposed by variants of the coronavirus.

 

Happy reading and welcome to Japan!
