Reading all kinds of books, and creative writing are my passions from a young age. After spending many years with teaching as my profession, finally I am devoting myself to my passions - Poetry, Singing, and Art. I also write short stories. 

 My early years were spent in India, and some later years in the Middle East - finally settled in Toronto, Canada. Writing comes first, but I also learn, practise and enjoy music and art. I am an avid reader from my early childhood - read both epic and modern writers - from Iliad, Odyssey and Shakespeare to P.G. Wodehouse, to Elena Ferrante and Kazuo Ishiguro. The book which is always on my desk is Gitanjali, the collection of spiritual songs by Rabindranath Tagore, the Nobel-laureate Poet of India.


Poetry is an expression of thoughts, feelings and reflections. Some of my unique life-experiences get expressed in my poems and short stories. I attempt to express my reflections and thoughts with creativity and depth - poetic flow and elegance are my goals. At present I am working on a memoir which covers my family's history and my life in three different countries with rich and varied cultures. 


I write equally in two languages -  in English, and also in Bengali, which is a regional language in the eastern part of India. I have translated a few famous Bengali poems (mainly by Rabindranath Tagore) in English and posted them on PoetrySoup. Hope to publish a collection of translations in future.

I create videos with my own poems and poems by famous writers, and also create audio-books from English and Bengali literature - post them on You Tube, where I have created my own channel. On that channel, I have uploaded a few videos of songs in Bengali, rendered by myself. 

Channel URL for You Tube

I work on a few forms of rare art - eggshell decorations, copper-tooling and batik are some of them. 

Here are the links to my translations of Rabindranath Tagore's Poems: (Finally Saved - Part 1) (Fianlly Saved - Part 2) (Fianally Saved - Part 3) (Freed From My Shacles) (Deception - Part 1) (Deception - Part 2)

Below is a link to my YOU TUBE Channel. You may subscribe to this channel, where I post recitation of my poems, poems from Rabindranath Tagore, and also songs (rendered by myself) composed by Tagore.

A Memorable Visit To India

Blog Posted:2/23/2023 4:56:00 PM

Dear Poet-Friends, 

After almost three years of uncertainty, anxiety and sadness, I am finally spending a winter-vacation in India, in the city - Kolkata - where I was born, and grew up. It is an exciting time for me, staying in a resort - which is called "Institute of Culture" - a place dedicated for international guests, scholars, artists, musicians. I feel so fortunate - to be here and make friends with gifted, passionate people from all around the world. I am particularly thrilled to find a group of young Japanese students learning Bengali. The place is buzzing with cultural activities.
I myself had a few personal goals this time. In my previous blog, I had mentioned a memoir I was writing (in Bengali) - and in the last  four months I finally got it done - and found a publisher who agreed to publish my book "Pahar Amake Dake" (Mountains Call Me). 
My other goal was to record a few Tagore songs with right accompaniments, in a professional studio. I am so delighted to let you know that I have accomplished recording five songs, which will ultimately be uploaded on You Tube. 
Dear Friends, this is why for the last three months I missed sharing poems on Soup, and participating in various themed contests. India at this time is beautiful with mild weather...the place I am staying looks stunning with gorgeous surrounding gardens! I wake up at dawn listening to birds chirping sweetest songs, and sky showcasing a palette of mesmerizing colours. Feel myself fortunate to spend vacation in a place vibrant with art, music, and literature. 
That's all for now. I will be back to Canada at the end of February - already missing my children and grandchildren. 
Take care, Dear Soupers. Warmest wishes,

Hi Mala, glad to know that you enjoyed your vacation in India, your native land and could interact with people from all over the world interested in art and literature. Indeed you have been lucky to have stayed in the 'Institute of Culture'. Hope you are back by now.

So lucky you are. You were able to have a communion with nature. I am sure you experienced a sublime healing within you. It's my dream to visit India, too. Sir Aniruddha Pathak and his wife is inviting us to visit Delhi and Baroda. Blessings my friend and welcome back to Soup. You were missed here! Keep your ink flowing again. Hope to see your new poem posted soon. ^____^ JCB

Dear JCB, Thank you so much for your lovely words - so precious to me. True, I experienced serenity and sublimity around, staying in an Ashram. With that calmness surrounding me, I was able to complete two of my projects, very close to my heart. You won't believe how many exceptional friends I made there! Very glad to know you are planning to visit India - a very warm, different and interesting cultural experience! I am back to Soup - writing gives me immense pleasure and peace of mind! Love and best wishes, Sweet Friend ~ Mala

Dearest Susan, Your kindest words bring so much joy and happiness to my mind - I feel inspired with your exceptionally original and creative poems, and also by your loving words. I feel fortunate to meet and get to know the kind and talented friends at this site. Yes, it was a great opportunity for me to spend two months at my birthplace, and also to stay engaged in creative projects. I hope to do so every year from now on, if life permits.Love ~ Mala

Namaste` Malabika! Was this a tribute to Rabindranath Tagore, the most famous and beloved poet of India. Malabika my eyes became watery, teary eyed. Thank you for sharing your poem and UTUBE video I was moved by your emotive musical rendering. I am a big fan of yours ~Anaya

You have already visited my channel, Dear Poetess - feel so excited! I have a few readings/recitations from Geetanjali in that channel. Here is a link: I have translated some of Tagore's long and short poems, and posted them on my page at Soup. If you are interested, you may find the links with my biography. Some of those poems highlight the status of women in nineteenth century India. Love and hugs, Dear Poet-Sister!

Namaste, My Sweet friend! My heart starts dancing when you tell me you are my fan!!! This song was written by Rabindranath Tagore for his collection of lyrical poems "Geetabitan" (Garden of Songs). His collection of poems, "Geetanjali" (Offering Of Songs) was awarded Nobel Prize for Literature in 1913. His songs have been labelled as a specific genre - Rabindrasangeet - I am one of those many people who practise them. It's hard to enjoy when the language is unfamiliar! Many many thanks to you. Love ~ Mala

Thank you so much, Dear Paula. I was in Kolkata, India, for two winter months...and you could rightly say, I was in heaven. The resort or "Ashram" where i stayed, is called "International Institute Of Culture", and it is the most peaceful and inspiring place i have ever found. it thrives with literature, music, art, spirituality! I definitely missed you (Paula), and you, and you - all my poet-friends! Love!

Thank you, Dear Poetess-Friend, for your wonderful inspiring message. I am really excited to share my experience with you! It is a blessing to spend a blissful time in a serene and peaceful “ashram” in India. I feel fortunate to complete and get ready for publishing an autobiographical novel in my home-language. The music videos are merely experiments…I should have done this long time’s a bit late now, my voice is not as strong as it used to be before! If you are interested, I have a You Tube channel… Posted first video there. Love ~ Mala
