11 Random Facts About Me
- I study English Literature and Creative Writing at university.
- I will defend English Literature and Creative Writing as a “real subject” that will get me a “real job” until the very end. Just try me. 😉

- Because I no longer have to do maths, I sometimes do it for fun.
- Through this, I’ve realised I’m still no good at maths.

11 Questions I Got Asked
- What inspires you?
The world. 🙂 Both the good things and the bad.
- What has been the greatest achievement of your life?
Being someone I can (more or less) be proud of.
- Books, movies, songs, plays – what do you like? Could you name the favourite?
I love all these things! Some of my favourites are Matilda by Roald Dahl, Meet the Parents (and PK for those who know/watch Bollywood movies), Paradise by Coldplay and Death of a Salesman respectively.
- Whom do you admire and why?
Would it be cheesy to say I admire my parents? I’ll say it anyway. They have so many qualities I admire and aspire towards. Also Charlie Chaplin, because of his incredible talent.
- What all creative things do you do?
Writing, photography, painting (badly), singing (terribly), Indian classical dance (specifically Kathak), acting, and doodling. 🙂
- With all the creative things that you possess what else would you want to add to your list?
I would love to learn to play the guitar.
- Which is a recent movie or a book that you have watched or read?
The last book I read (and am still reading) is The Monogram Murders by Sophie Hannah, starring Agatha Christie’s character Hercule Poirot. It’s really good!
- If you have to spend an entire day as someone who would that be (as in a movie character or a character from a story or T.V. series) and why?
I would spend the day as Luna Lovegood from the Harry Potter series so I could explore Hogwarts and see what goes on in her brilliant mind. 😀 Sorry, had to have a Harry Potter reference in here somewhere…
- Which is your favourite colour?
