About the author

Aashish Dotel

I'm an ambitious teen at the nineteens with an open mind to learn and pick up the intensities of life. I found writing would bring sort of glee in my mood and started doing the same back then. I am a student and I don't have much working history. Apart from that, I love to travel and criticize everything. I love to disappear into language and literature. No judgments, I'm as raw as they come.
