Sudipta Mukherjee

I am a passionate writer who desires to endure in the minds of her readers. I am a voracious reader and a lover of good music. Interactions with people amuse me, as much as my own company does. Stories are my gate away to a different world, where I can stay for days together. It’s a private world that I share with no other. I write to explore life in my own way. I trust that this journey of words will make my life complete and will lead me to whatever truth that is beyond. Apart from a writer, I am a wife to a loving husband and a mother of an adorable daughter.
