“Sharmishtha (Trisha) Basu”



Never had too big expectations from life,

dreamt a lot, loved dreaming big

but never tormenting my heart

when they stayed elusive

even after trying hard and true

those disappointments taught

another lesson oh so smart!

tie your rope around the waist

of a shooting star through galaxy

and enjoy the journey

that way, you wont mope too much

no matter where it lands!




You really want to know Sharmishtha Basu?


Well, Sharmishtha Basu is fifth child of Late Dr. Shibaprasad Basu, she is Bengali, Indian, she took birth in Tundla, Uttar Pradesh, lived in and around Uttar Pradesh for the first sixteen years of her life, then returned to Burdwan, West Bengal where her ancestors have been living for more than five hundred years, and lived in West Bengal till 2015 February, since February 2015 she is living in Hyderabad.


She is unemployed, unmarried so with lot of time and excessive energy, some evil people made her dreams of having a normal career impossible but that did not diminished her energy, so she utilizes her time and energy mainly by painting and writing, hoping that her books will become her dream career, her salvation in her words, she is a blend of bhaktiyoga and karmayoga.


She loves her journey in this amazing world with all colours, her works are her way of sharing them, they come from her heart and experiences.


She is a very ordinary person who has learned a lot from wise people from all over the world as a result she lives a very happy, content life and wishes the same for everyone else too.




Who am I? just a child of God like you

Your very own, I too worship the same God

Only in some other form, and just like you

I too pray for food, shelter and clothe for all.

What do I love? In this beautiful world?

Let me think, the smile on a baby’s face

Flowers, gardens, sky, clouds and butterflies

Music, love, friends, any thing with beauty 

My religion? To love every harmless soul

Feel compassion for every living being 

Never play God even when I am wronged

Never to hit back unless pushed in corner 

What do I hope? A permanent place in your heart 

An entire life of friendship with you

 We will fly together forever, in the blue skies

 Full of love, peace and harmony everlasting

  1. I totally agree using the above comment, the internet is having a doubt growing into one of the most important medium of communication across the globe and its due to websites like this that suggestions are spreading so quickly.

  2. Hmm it appears like your website ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I had written and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I as well am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to the whole thing. Do you have any recommendations for inexperienced blog writers? I’d really appreciate it.

  3. Just stopping in to say hi. I see you’re writing your poetry and teaching as well. Lovely. Have a beautiful day my sweet spirit daughter and friend. Love, Sharie

  4. When I started to question myself, and ask my Indian friend to give constructive criticism on something I have written (I would dare to call them real poem but only poem like), and I saw your likes on my posts. I like poems that inspired my soul, and touch my heart (likewise for my own ‘poem like’ writing, and photos…)

    Thank you :), and I am looking for inspiration from you as well.

  5. I am fairly new to blogging. I received a notice in my email that you had liked my post in Fantaseize. Could you tell me how you found it? I was posting an epic poem that I had to post in increments, and had barely finished when the email showed up. I made a mistake in the postings, and still don’t have it fixed. It’s all a bit confusing to me. I can’t find on my dashboard where all the posts went. When I hit ALL POSTS, the only one coming up is the initial post on the WRITE AWAY page. You seem to have a bit more control of your blog than I do. lol.

    I quite like your poetry. 🙂 I will read more as I can. Thank you for Liking the first part of the poem.


    • usually after i finish up with my own posting i start to read the topics on which i write, your post must have published right at that moment, and after that the problem must have shown up and the post might have got deleted accidentally. I dont have any idea about what happened to your posts. How could they vanish? they are not in the draft folder, are they?

      That must have been horrible!

      • I think I have it fixed now so that at least the whole poem is there. However, it still posts backwards. So that you have to scroll to the bottom of the list to read part One. And since it likes to archive things, all that shows up on the home page is like Part Nine or Ten or something like that.

        Anyway, thanks for answering. Appreciate you. 🙂 HUGS!


      • i already did, you are a magical writer. with time you will get habituated with the site, i too had a lot of confusions during the beginning phase, years of practice has made things easier.

        what happened to your poems? they have all vanished it seems! there is only one picture of a cat on an antenna watching moon!

  6. Congratulations, Sharmishtha basu!

  7. Hey Sharmishtha, thanks for your kind words about my blog (www.nancystohlman.com), and yes, I plan to do flash nano again in November. Are you interested in joining us for the manuscript workshop preview?

  8. thank you my friend for sharing the article and happy greetings of friendship and hopefully, when we share it with sincerity. Greetings from Gede Prama 🙂

  9. hi Sharmishtha! I’m trying to contact you regarding the haiku you sent me for Purehaiku. I did leave a message on one of your blogs, but I can’t remember which one, and I’ve tried emailing you. Please could you contact me urgently at purehaiku@gmail.com I would like to use your haiku on my blog but the last line needs amending and I need your permission… Hope to hear from you soon! much love Freya xxxx

  10. This is a really beautiful post, Trisha. I’m happy to know you. We all get angry, so nothing to be worried about there, besides, you’ve had plenty of things to be angry about and yet you’ve turned out to be a beautiful person all the same. I always love your art and poetry. Need to buy more of your books so I can enjoy them fully. Let me know if you need anything… a blurb about your books or something. My new email is kevincooper63@live.com. God Bless! 🙂
