Raunak Agarwal is a storyteller and poet based in Kolkata, India. His first book, Heart Broken Musings, a first-of-its-kind Poetry/Rant was released in 2018 and was an instant bestseller.

When he’s not writing, or dreaming, or making his readers swoon over his poetry, he runs a tax-consultancy firm along with his father.
