About Anangsha

A two-time Quora Top Writer and top writer in fiction on Medium, Anangsha specializes in poetry and short fiction. Her compositions have won several national and international awards. Her poetry debut "Stolen Reflections" ended up as an Amazon bestseller within four days of its release and is still going strong on the Amazon Bestsellers list. Her second book is a suspense thriller. "What did Tashi Do?" is the story of a girl from the North Eastern part of India living in New Delhi, who gets ensnared in an all-pervading web of anonymous cyber harassment. Anangsha is currently working on her third book - an anthology of microfiction spanning various genres. She is also working on her first full-length novel - a piece of historical fiction set in the war-torn India of the 1600s. Apart from her writing career, Anangsha holds a masters degree in civil engineering. She is currently pursuing her Ph.D. part-time from IIT Guwahati while working as an Assistant Professor at NIT Silchar. She hopes to write her own fantasy fiction series some day.

Her writing journey got a kickstart because of Quora, where she got a chance to showcase her work in front of millions all around the world. She wears many feathers in her hat, a few of which are:
