A writer with a penchant for subtle twists. A huge fan of O Henry, Agatha Christie, JK Rowling and Lee Child among many others. I am here to explore new avenues and push the boundaries in my writing.

... And the path disappears over the horizon as I take another step forward, the inner me chanting all the way

My new story is now live. Do check it out.

कभी कभी वो पहला ख़त जो आखिरी बन जाता है

कभी कभी उम्र बीत जाती है बस ये समझने में
हर किसी को मुकम्मल जहाँ कब मिल पाता है

Magar 'sequel' ki gunjaish to hamesha rehti hai
