I am new to python. I learnt (!) using  raw_input a day back. Attempt to
use has resulted in error. I am not able to spot a problem in syntax. I am
using python 3.4.2. Kindly help

a = raw_input("Write down your name: ")


Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<pyshell#1>", line 1, in <module>
    a = raw_input("Write down your name: ")
NameError: name 'raw_input' is not defined
