Tanaya Goswami

Books are Tanaya Goswami’s first love and cheesecakes come a close second. Talking about movies, music, calligraphy, politics, and Elon Musk will get you listed under the friends’ section of her diary. Ever since moving on from her job as an English lecturer, she spends her time at BYJU’S crafting stories filled with emotion and sprinkled with sarcasm. Outside of work, she’s either learning something new (French, most recently!) or is curled up with a book and a cup of coffee. She firmly believes that discovering what you don’t know is the key to knowledge and is constantly working towards improving herself.

I want to change this world ,because it is just
Worst and we are creating our death path by inventing
Or making pollution creators so first we should stop this
and let us invent for wellfare of nature like I have an idea
Of creating artificial fossil creation ,energy from plants photosynthesis
And etc .believe that nothing is impossible
