About Taniya Umar

Accountant by Degree. Writer by Profession. Poet by Heart and Stargazer in her head, legend (and by that we mean The Hitchhiker's Guide to The Galaxy) has it that Tania didn't choose writing. Instead, writing took one look at her chubby face when she was just a young girl and smiled with a mouthful of unspoken sentences and took her off on adventures of the pen that are still her happy place when life gets hard for her. Now, all grown up, Tania spends her days doing what she loves: writing, in the hopes that someday, her audience will love her back enough to send multiple cups of chaye her way. You can get in touch with her via the comments section, her email id (If you can find it???) and her Facebook page where she's known, quite simply, as Raggedy Khatoon. Live long and prosper!
