Failure Rediscovered - by Shoumika Ganguli | WBRi Online Magazine

Shoumika Ganguli - Poetess - Washington Bangla RadioShoumika Ganguli shares with us this short write up on her journey to getting published. Our readers may remember Shoumika's prior writings on Washington Bangla Radio, including her ode to all mothers of the world "The Hand that Rocked the Cradle", her take on the word "Please" and her poem "Bidding Adieu".


By Shoumika Ganguli

‘Success is 99% failure’, antonyms so beautifully used in a sentence that can actually mollify a livid soul. So with this jaunty quote I start off with a fresh piece of writing, waiting to be lauded as a writer which I know is a way too tumultuous an expectation but may be infinity is another name for expectation. Starting on an optimistic note doesn’t mean that I love the boulevard to my dreams but rather I would like to make a small enlightenment in this regard. I started writing in school when my English teacher once praised me for my immaculate writing and a gamut of thinking stuff. The very next day I read the story of a lady writing on a piece of scratch paper and all the world could know was Harry Potter. I then switched my dream from becoming an Aeronautical Engineer to a full time writer. No sooner I realised the grotesque way.

Calcutta, May 8, 2011 (Washington Bangla Radio) Bengali film-maker Sanghamitra Chaudhuri's (interview) “Bidehir Khonje Rabindranath” premiered in Kolkata on May 4, 2011. The date is of significance - the unit selected commencement of Kabipaksha (a fortnight of birthday celebrations of Rabindranath Tagore) for releasing the docu-feature film.

The uniqueness of the premiere was the venue - Jorasankor Thakurbari (the landmark home of Rabindranath Tagore in Calcutta) instead of popular cinema halls.
