Sharmishtha Basu@ Agnishatdal: Tell us something about yourself [Add your contact details on social media please (FB Gmail etc anything you want to share with readers)!]
Shweta Sarangi: Current I am pursuing Mtech in chemical engineering from IIT(ISM) Dhanbad. I have a keen interest in writing and singing. I feel more connected to myself when I write down things. Writing provides me instant relief by giving direction to my untamed thoughts and wings to my imagination.Though I am not a regular writer, yet I pursue this hobby in my leisure hours. I have completed four years in classical music. Music and writing are just inextricable part of my life. Apart from these, I enjoy drawing and collecting quotations of eminent personalities.
Sharmishtha Basu@ Agnishatdal: Are you an accidental writer or it is your dream coming true?
Shweta Sarangi: I have never imagined that I would step into the world of writing. This is something happened out of my imagination. As I developed the habit of writing during my undergraduate course (may be poetry, short stories or articles), I become more passionate about it. Then I realize that I can be a writer too. And whenever I go through the works of my sister, I get motivated.
Sharmishtha Basu@ Agnishatdal: Where do you see yourself as a writer ten years from now? Will you be writing or your career may kidnap you?
