Reading and writing prose and poetry has always been a passion. Though I hold no degrees of literature, I’ve achieved enough in terms of knowledge, vocabulary and writing skills. Literature, of any language, is a part through which I’ve developed my personality. I’m in class tenth and I’d seen the dream of getting my book out five years back. But perhaps I saw it with open eyes, now. I still dream of being a distinguished writer and I would try my best to give the most succulent pieces of literature in the upcoming times.Read More
Aditya was born in a small town in North India and moved to the capital (Delhi) very early in his life. He is a philosopher trapped in the mind of a poet, trapped in the body of an ex-IITian.

He is suspicious of happy endings. He currently lives in Mumbai (India) but mostly he lives inside his head.Read More

I grew up in Waterloo, Iowa, where life flowed as deep and tranquil as the Cedar River that divided east from west. I was fortunate enough to be born into a family where books were collected and revered. My earliest memories are of the sublime pleasure to be had from reading, first cuddled next to my grandmother in her big overstuffed rocking chair as she read the children’s classics aloud, then curled up on my own as I graduated from story collections and Little Golden Books to Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boys and finally to the contemporary and classic novels in my mother’s library. I was already a lifelong book junkie, the first step to becoming a writer.
