Sharmishtha Basu is an unemployed artist, writer who is out to test her works, eager to meet publicists, literary agents, publishers and gallant, generous readers, to see if they can help her to build an “unorthodox” career, a path followed by many before, some has been blessed with success, most have not, let us see what you make of her attempts! A failure or success- it all depends on you. These are pieces from her book, the book is available on createspace and amazon- It is a collection of poems and black and white illustrations to go with them. Some are photographs, others paintings, cyber sketches mainly.
Why do we walk in traps of mess makers?
narrow minds eager to ruin peace?
When they attack us one by one
they often use us as shield against others.
They befriend some and hiding behind them
attack the others, one by one.
Once they have finished the rest
they turn on those who were shield till then.
