The beginnings are scary and endings are sad. It’s something in the between that makes life worth living… – Anon Kushaangi Roy is just 17! Although, her perception makes her seem like an experienced adult. The same maturity and perception is reflected in her book ‘Clam Carmen’… Clam means a secret while Carmen means a song.
