I am Palak, born and brought up in Himachal Pradesh. An introvert by nature who loves writing more than speaking. I do it often to express myself, to entrain myself, and to feel meaningful. While enjoying this world of words I ended up being part of a published anthology 'Blooming skies' with my poem 'On the day of devastation'. I love this concept of written words living on a paper till the end of time, they give me a sense eternity.
