Keertana

Hi! I'm an often overly-excited, frequently fun-loving, and sometimes deeply-sunk-in-thoughts student of life. Earth and all the stuff in it -especially humans- has always awed me and I love being inspired by all of it. While I believe in expressing my thoughts out loud, with a flash of good motivation, I enjoy actually creating the change with my youth leadership programs in India and start-ups. I've been writing here on WV since the age of 14.
