Madhura Chandana

Apart from being the Associate Editor at Women's Web, where I get to read, edit and write a lot of interesting articles, my life is simple. It begins at 'M' (Movies) and ends with 'B' (Books). In between there is some travelling, photography, stories, TV shows, web series and of course Harry Potter. In my world with all these, there is absolutely no place for reality, its all fantasy and I just love it.
