Sharmishtha Basu

You really want to know Sharmishtha Basu?


Well, Sharmishtha Basu is fifth child of Late Dr. Shibaprasad Basu, she is Bengali, Indian, her birthplace is Tundla, Uttar Pradesh, lived in and around Uttar Pradesh for the first sixteen years of her life, then returned to Burdwan, West Bengal , her family has dwelled there for five hundred years or so and are still dwelling there, she lives in Kolkata, the tinsel town she truly despises especially after spending almost an year in Hyderabad in 2015.  

She is unemployed, unmarried so with lot of time and excessive energy, some evil people made her dreams of having a normal career impossible but that did not diminished her energy, so she utilizes her time and energy mainly by painting and writing, hoping that her books will become her dream career, her salvation in her words, she is a blend of bhaktiyoga and karmayoga.


She loves her journey in this amazing world with all colours, her works are her way of sharing them, they come from her heart and experiences.


She is a very ordinary person who has learned a lot from wise people from all over the world as a result she lives a very happy, content life and wishes the same for everyone else too.



Kaun hoon main? Ek mati kee putli.

Who am I? just a child of God like you

tumhari hee tarah, ek hee bananewale kee rachna.

Your very own, I too worship the same God

ek hee khuda ke bande hain ham shayad

Only in some other form, and just like you

wo dikhte hain juda juda par hain ek hee.

I too pray for food, shelter and clothe for all,

tumharee hee tarah main bhee duayen mangti hoon

ke sari jahan rahe khairyat se!


Is khoobsoorat duniya me kya hai pyara mujhe?

What do I love? In this beautiful world?

zara sochne to do pehle!

Let me think, the smile on a baby’s face

meethi see muskan ek bachche kee, gulshan ke phool,

Flowers, gardens, sky, clouds and butterflies

ye neela aasman, sitare, chand, suraj aur titliyan.

Music, love, friends, any thing with beauty.

sangeet kee jhankar, doston ka pyar, har khoobsoorat shakhs.


mera mazhab? pyar karna har masoom se,

My religion? To love every harmless soul

har jaan ko dena dular,

Feel compassion for every living being

agar shaitan se bhee muqabla ho bhagwan banne

kee koshish tak nahi karna bas dua mangna bhagwanse!

Never play God even when I am wronged

kisi per waar na karna jab tak use tala ja sake.

Never to hit back unless pushed in corner.

mere sapne? tumhare dil me ek jagah hamesha ke liye!

What do I hope? A permanent place in your heart

sari zindagi tumhara daman thamke bitana.

An entire life of friendship with you

ek saath udna is zindagi ke aakash me.

We will fly together forever, in the blue skies

bhar lena hamari zindagiyan beshumar pyarse.

Full of love, peace and harmony everlasting

  1. Hello
    Typing in Devnagri for your Hindi stuff is very simple if you have downloaded the fonts on your comp. Anyone who helps you maintain your comp should be able to help you. Just check Google Input Tools ऐंड डाउनलोड इट.
    Meanwhile, hope you’ll check out my blog (जस्ट रीसेंटली स्टार्टेड)
    All the best.


    • I tried Avro twice, both times it screwed up my windows so badly that I had to re install windows, but someone told me that it no longer does that, so, when my techie brother returns from his trip (the only person I allow to touch my computer) I will ask him to install it, but the fear remains you know, he goes out for long tours and if my computer crashes when he is gone? that is the thing which is keeping me from installing avro.


  2. No, no! Not Avro. Please just take a look at Google Input Tools when your brother comes. I’m very confident that you won’t have any problems due to that. Most of all, it’s so easy to type – exactly like you type English, same keys. You’ll get a hang of it at once, trust me. And I’ve used it for almost 4 years now after the first installation… and until now, not a single breakdown or problem has occured vis-a-vis Hindi. Not exaggerating.
    All the best!!


  3. Did you do it on your own? Cause I took help, and there’s an option of choosing the language. Does your screen display the ENG option on it, usually on the bottom right next to the time? If yes, click on it, and choose the Hindi option, and then type using the Hindi fonts. And when you want to switch back to English the same way when you want. Just a negligible effort considering what you get to do 🙂 If it’s not there, please check with anyone who knows the basics better. Regards.


    • you were right, my brother is here at present and he fixed it, I will have to practice it though, some letters are easily discovered magar some letters cant be discovered! I will share it after taking pic of the letters I cant find there, maybe you know!


  4. Good progress, Sharmishtha!
    Keep at it, you’ll get a hang of it soon.
    As a thumb rule, try typing the English letters the way your Hindi letters would sound.
    For instance, type ‘ksh’ for ‘क्ष’, ‘gy’ for ‘ज्ञ’, ‘shringar’ for ‘श्रृंगार’, etc.
    As you’d have noticed, as you type, you see a small drop down window with optional Hindi words from the letters that you’re typing, the most expected one on top. In case you want some other option from the list, click on that option, and continue (the moment you press ‘space’ or any punctuation like a ‘dash’, the selected option or the topmost option gets printed).
    Yes, it is not as fast as typing English, but I found it the best and easiest way of typing Hindi. In any case, I’m sure you’ll get faster if you keep typing something in Hindi every day, even if just a little bit.
    Best wishes.


    • I don’t get that small drop down window with choices! I will look for it. you have to be really attentive! 🙂 I will certainly have to squeeze out some time, I wish I could do it offline though! can it be used offline? say through outlook?


  5. Often, you’d have to type the whole word for the system to guess the appropriate letter. At other times, when I don’t get the right word, I type other common words with those letters, and then cut and join the parts to form the word I want. I know it sounds like a lot of work, but trust me, you’ll get fast at it once you do it regularly… and it is a different high to see your stuff in printed Devnagri font, so it turns out worth the little effort. Cheers!


  6. Hey, yes! I use it offline mostly. And I realised just now that the drop down window does not appear when using it online. I work on Word (MS Office) try it there first to get acquainted to it. And tell me the letters u r not getting. Say it using English letters, let me see if I can figure how to type it in Devnagri.
    All the best!


    • You are a priceless friend Praveen, thanks! I will try to use it offline, in outlook because that will be the better way of using it for me, I cant exhaust my data usage trying to write/practice writing 🙂

      Thanks again!
