I like words. I like the way they can be used to represent a person, a person’s senses, a person’s environment and the perceptions, notions, emotions and the general motion of existence. I like to immerse myself into the different avatars of words – the ones with the seductive scent of the ink on paper, the ones that float coyly in the air accompanied by different hues of sounds and the shapeless vapours in the mind yet to be born into the world. My name is Samantak Bhadra and I hail from Kolkata, India. I love writing. I love happiness. I love the melancholy. This website is an extension of me. Sit down for a while. Listen to the silent breeze.
