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".

FAILURE REDISCOVERED

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.

সান্ত্বনা চট্টোপাধ্যায়

বুদ্ধং শরণং গচ্ছামি...

সুদীপঊড্ডীণ শ্রীরামপুরী

(অক্টোবর ২০০৩)



শুভ্রতা প্রতীক শান্তির।
স্মর্তব্য দুহাজারী অশান্তির।
কৃষ্ণ গহ্বর , ঘূর্ণি আবর্তণ,
শুভ্রতার লোহিত সরণ।
বুদ্ধং শরণং গচ্ছামি।

টুকর টুকর রঙিন আলোর বন্যা ,

ভাসিয়ে নিয়ে চলে ...

Prayers for Japan II (Tokyo)


Michigan, March 22, 2011 (Washington Bangla Radio): The strict self discipline and Japan’s hi tech infrastructure has prevented Tokyo from being affected by the recent earthquake and the Tsunami. I fondly recall my trip to this amazing city of Asia that can attract anyone from any corner of the World, even though sightseeing is not its USP.

Where I'm From (Poem)

26th March 2011: 

I am from stacks of books,
Sitting on the floor,
Read over twice,
But still more to go.

Zermatt (Switzerland)


Michigan, March 25, 2011 (Washington Bangla Radio): When our travel advisor showed me the brochures of Zermatt, the captivating pictures of Klein Matterhorn made it feel absolutely irresistible. 

Jungle Book (Kanha, India)


Michigan, March 21, 2011 (Washington Bangla Radio): When Rudyard Kipling penned his famous ‘Jungle book’ inspired by Kanha, the verdant yet dense forest with teeming wild life wasn’t as famous as it is now.

Untitled (Poem)

Michigan, 20th March, 2011 (Washington Bangla Radio) : 

Remembering the day.
Night sky starry,

Stone Mountain Park (Atlanta, United States)


Michigan, March 15, 2011 (Washington Bangla Radio): Georgia’s Stone Mountain Park is the region’s most visited attraction, a patch of green and is home to the world’s largest piece of exposed granite. Offering a variety of entertainment and recreation for visitors of all ages, we found that there was always something happening at the Stone Mountain Park. 

Prayers for Japan (Miyajima)


Michigan, March 12, 2011 (Washington Bangla Radio): Japan, as a nation is just beautiful. Hi tech affairs are a child’s play in this nation and we realized it more when we covered a distance of 900 kms to Hiroshima & Miyajima by Japan’s famed ‘Bullet Train’ in less than four hours flat…phew!! 

Shoppers' Paradise (Singapore)


Michigan, March 11, 2011 (Washington Bangla Radio): Every visit to Singapore triggers off a tug-of-war between the mind and the purse; It’s a pure conflict between passion, obsession on one side and credit cards or cash on the other. No prizes for guessing which side wins.
