Mango pickles

China jars filled with mango pickle
Their yummy aroma will surely tickle
All your taste buds, your fantasy
Just one mouthful and you are in ecstasy.

Sharmishtha basu

sultry seductress

Sultry seductress
Blessed with excess of gab
And animal passion
Practices her prances
On men old enough to be father
Or may be grandfather
They slave, suck her toes
She gloats on their services,
Becomes fat on their toils

Sharmishtha basu



In the fog covered streets of London
Where once jack the ripper lurked
Now skulks the stripper witch
She has stripped off her soul
That’s not her type of possession
She prefers the weapons
Like lust, greed and passion
Armed with them she skulks
Looking for innocent preys
Only she leaves behind empty pockets
Empty wallets not corpses

Sharmishtha basu


why is it tough?
or may be impossible task?
to earn bread through sweat?

why is it essence?
in today’s civilized world,
trade of self for food?

some ask for your soul,
some for body, spine,
almost none for sweat.

no need for brain,
if you offer body, soul,
they will serve you well.

if you don’t offer,
any thing but brain, sweat,
your pleas may get trashed.

season of grief

sharmishtha basu


Why take help of lies?
sweet dizzying opium!
to heal a broken heart?
wounds don’t need opium!

They need love, balm, care
they need time to heal, repair.
time to stand back on feet,
embrace the harshest reality.

honest love and care
may not dizzy the pain,
but at the end they will heal
bring him back on his feet.

opium will dizzy his senses,
fool him that the wound is not there,
may turn the wound to gangrene
and leave him mutilated for ever .

Sharmishtha basu

brand them!

Satyameva jayate- truth will be victorious!
