Archita Mittra is

19 and loves to tell stories with words and images. A student of English Literature at Jadavpur University, she also has a Diploma in Multimedia and Animation from St. Xavier’s College, Kolkata.

a wild-eyed wanderlust soaked fangirl who on dark days claims to have been Sylvia Plath in her past life. She loves Tim Burton and Tom Hiddleston  and Doctor Who among a million other things.

a freelance writer and designer who once wanted to be a NASA scientist and a cryptozoologist and build an Einstein Rosen bridge to travel to an alternate dimension and discover faeries and unicorns.

She occasionally loves stimulating conversations and blueberry milkshakes.

“There was a silly damn bird called a phoenix back before Christ, every few hundred years he built a pyre and burnt himself up. He must have been the first cousin to Man. But every time he burnt himself up he sprang out of the ashes, he got himself born all over again. And it looks like we’re doing the same thing, over and over, but we’re got on damn thing the phoenix never had. We know the damn silly thing we just did. We know all the damn silly things we’ve done for a thousand years and as long as we know that and always have it around where we can see it, someday we’ll stop making the goddamn funeral pyres and jumping in the middle of them. We pick up a few more people that remember every generation.”
― Ray Bradbury, Fahrenheit 451
