About

23, Born and brought up in Delhi, India and studied in Kharagpur, West Bengal for half a decade. Went there to become an engineer, but somehow ended up being a theatre actor and an occasional writer. Now working as a business analyst in an e-commerce giant.

I like to think I have a way with people, can understand them by getting into their shoes. Still new to blogging, learning as I move slowly but steadily with encouragement from fellow writers. So feel free to drop by, criticize, laugh, feel with me.

Will try to attempt all forms of writing and let people decide what I do best (if anything at all).

Passionately Yours,
Prateek πŸ™‚

        Oh, you’re so kind calling me “an experienced author”! I have written a lot, certainly, and it’s funny to think back at the number of unfinished “novels” I have begun… I guess it is one kind of experience!
        I think that as I grew older, I needed more words to express myself, hence why I am now leaning towards prose and although one might say that you don’t need many words as long as they are the right words… well, see for yourself, even my comment is long… πŸ˜€

    I have a strong liking for theater. I have not done any yet, but I always wished to. However, to not feel sad and to not regret, I participated in acting competitions.

        Hi again, Prateek. I’m so glad you accepted the award! It’s quite a quick one to do – only one real question this time, and you don’t have to write any for your nominees either.I wasn’t sure whether you were ‘award free’ because you didn’t respond to the last one I nominated you for. (I think you’d just started your new job). I’ll look forward to reading your post, when you do it. There’s no rush, so fit it in whenever… πŸ˜€

        You are such a sweet person, Millie! Your both awards will be done this week. I know there’s no rush, but I want to take awards from you and show off them as soon as possible. Because when you are awarded by a blogger whom you respect and admire so much, it is a real prized possession ☺☺

        Did you find the other one, then? It was a while ago now. There’s definitely no rush. I’ve been sitting on these last two for ages. I think Suganiya, who nominated me for one of them, must have given up on me. Thank you for your lovely praise! I admire and respect you, too. πŸ™‚

        Don’t worry I will find it. There’s a saying here that you can find God if you really look for him. This is just a blog post😁

        A very wise saying, Prateek. I’ll remember that one. πŸ™‚
