About Sharmishtha Basu

A bookworm transformed into an addicted writer. I love to write and illustrate them myself. By love I mean love, no half-hearted relationship, a full-fledged, passionate love, I can’t pass two days in a stretch without writing/painting (cyber), just feel empty like lovers do when their lovers are away on a tour! Even though I am thoroughly enjoying self-publishing with amazon, but if you like my work and want to publish my works in your magazine, books or better if you want to publish a book of my works please make me very happy by contacting me. Or if you want to sell my works on commission basis only!! contact me, I will be quite relieved. Honestly writing and selling your own work is a very BORING combination. So you are more than welcome! Mail me @sharmishthabasu@hotmail.com, sermistabasu@gmail.com or go to- my blog (I have 16 blogs in wordpress, all active, some on daily basis, every one on weekly basis screaming and vowing my LOVE for writing and painting- this one is first-born, so special) mydomainpvt.wordpress.com (You will get the link to my remaining blogs there) or you can check out my ezines- monthly- Agnishatdalezine.wordpress.com And Agnijaat.wordpress.com if you want fb you can go to my page facebook.com/sermistabasu, linkedin- linkedin.com/authorsharmishthabasu my email id sharmishthabasu@hotmail.com and sermistabasu@gmail.com I am in goodreads and completelynovel too http://www.goodreads.com/sharmishthabasu http://completelynovel.com/sharmishtha-basu http://amazon.com/author/sharmishthabasu I guess I said enough about myself, right? You will forget if I stuff too much here, so if you are curious to know this humble creature just join me in my blogs :)

losers and winners

Every loser is not unworthy, unfit,
Every winner is not worthy, fit
Sometimes invisible forces meet
To decide who victory shall greet.

Rules of a Quatrain:
Did you notice that a quatrain is formed by two rhyming couplets? Easy! This pattern is called a a b b. The first line rhymes with the second (sky and by) and the third line rhymes with the fourth line (edge and ledge). Other quatrain patterns are a b a b,
a b b a, and a b c b.


little sparrow

the little sparrow chirps and hops
busy flying here and there
looking for crumbs everywhere
her tiny wing barely stops.

hatred

This disease is named hatred
That makes you want someone dead.
The fault is hardly on their part
Because the disease thrives in your heart.

fireflies and stars

Firefly twinkle and glows
Soft breeze in bamboo grove blows
The stars look down at them
Musing if earth is mirroring them

effects of headlines

If you really want to screw up your mood
Read the newspaper seriously
If you want to screw it further
Read and think a little about the news.

If you want to ruin the day and more
Think more seriously about it.
Now it’s done! Go ahead!
Spend the rest of the day brooding!
