Sometimes in the middle of the night I would get up and write and sometimes the whole day just sit and think looking down my window... A thinker, a wannabe journalist, a writer and closed philosopher. . . A small Towner with huge dreams, a feminist - hard core, a foodie and book lover. I can kill for chocolates and die for friendship . . . A graduate in English Literature presently pursuing creative writing ... Bollywood is one of my strongest addictions and one of the few topics am ready to write on anytime of the day.
