I Wrote This – Shreya Sethi and Craig Dominic Pinto

This world has no ends to begin with; however something once upon a time started it all. That something was I. Enveloping the realms of common sense and sense common to some, this book seeks to awaken the “I” in you. What once found its way in the tattered pages of old journals now turns to face the world. In this mechanical era, where most people can’t find themselves in their own reflection; starving for an answer. It is for them to discover how an idea can set them free. I am what brought two strangers to narrate one story; it is a journey I wanted them to be a part of.
