Shreya Das

I am an adventure seeker and a trouble maker. My other qualities include my impressive conversationalist skills. In plain language – I can talk. I can really talk; I could talk non – stop from my first waking moment till the time my eyes shut. Unfortunately I lack good listeners.
There is a serious lack of people who would listen to my incessant rambling, I mean intellectual pearls of wisdom. Hence, I write.
