Sumita Datta

(Digboi(Assam))

Biography of Sumita Datta

I was born and brought up in a small cosmopolitan town called Digboi situated in upper Assam, India. From a toddler become a pretty woman spending time with nature. Spent my childhood sometimes playing with tad poles in the pond or climbing jack fruit tree; sometimes playing with hailstones, sometimes by catching fish. Still remember how crazy I was to ride the elephant during my trip to a picnic in a river side when the elephant used his trunk to make me seat on him. From the age of 5 till 15, reading Tagore was addiction… It was my passion to recite poems written by Tagore. As time flies, priority changes in life… From school to college, college to job and then marriage, all these pushed me from Assam to Kolkata, Kolkata to Delhi. My profession took me from India to Belguim, Belguim to Canada… and many more countries… In short, I met lot of people variety of culture, seen variety of nature which helps me to write.
I am not a poetess. Writing is my passion and I right whatever I feel. If you like it and put an honest comment, I accept that as a blessing.

Wrong No.

Couple of months back, the phone rang one evening
I picked up the phone and he stared singing....

I asked, hey wait.... who are you?
He said, don’t worry, tell me 'am I bothering you? '

I was surprised, the way he was talking to me
As if, for years he is known to me....
