Always lost in her own world, Roushni Sarkar found refuge in the magical alleys of Bengali literature as a child when everyone else was at play. Life became more adventurous when she was pushed to explore the narratives beyond boundaries while doing her graduation and master's. Now she has ventured into a realm that she had always stayed away from. Watching and reading about films made on native soil now give her so much thrill that she has a movie title for every situation she comes across. At times, she also hears background music when she meets some real-life characters!
