Natasha Borah Khan

I truly believe in the power of words. Putting down my thoughts and feelings in black and white unclutters my mind as well de-stresses me. I also write because I believe it can make a difference. I am a born bibliophile. I endeavor to nurture my amateur but congenital green thumb. I believe in the magic called love. I am often labelled 'a feminist' as I believe and preach that men and women are equals. I hail from the beautiful northeast India and currently reside in Delhi. Professionally, I am in the human resources field.
