“I touch the world not as myself but as an echo of who I was.”– Ocean Vuong

Having a knack for exploring different genres of art and literature, I love to rummage through the abandoned notions of the psyche, human behavior and intentions, melancholy, and literary freedom that exist within these two realms.
From Poe’s “Is all that we see or seem but a dream within a dream?”, Beckett’s “In an instant all will vanish and we’ll be alone once more, in the midst of nothingness.”, to Gustav Klimt’s The Kiss and Van Gogh’s The Starry Night, life’s fragility demands preservation in the finest of writings and brushstrokes and henceforth, it becomes a duty for us to decode, appreciate and perceive what we may from these multilayered conceptions to live a humane life.
Being a poet, words act as a cathartic force for me when everything else in this world seems like nothing but a mirage. When things stop making sense, it is these creatively pieced-together words—that somehow act as a jigsaw puzzle, that provide me with the tranquility of being a whole in the midst of a fragmented storm. I’m ecstatic to avail the opportunity to explore and enact different forms and notions of Literature as a content writer.
