Actor Prasenjit Chatterjee at the launch of book of poems titled Aayna
Actor Prasenjit Chatterjee and members of the band Cactus were present at the launch of the book of poems titled Aayna. The book has been penned down by RJ Roopsha Dasgupta. Sujoy Prasad Chatterjee, an eminent arts personality served as the anchor of this book launch ceremony.
RJ Roopsha is a very common name among the listeners of Radio Mirchi. Apart from being a great radio jockey, the lady is also a multi-talented personality who recently released her music album. The book of poems titled Aayna is a tribute to her mother, Sushmita Dasgupta whom she lost at the age of twenty three.
“I prefer to call this book a book of expressions, rather than a book of poems. Whatever emotions and feelings that I have in my heart have been expressed in this book. It is divided into a few sections namely- Tuki taki, Prithibi, Ma, Anubhuti and Jibon. The book has forty three poems or rather forty three expressions which I felt at various times in my life. I know there will be mistakes but kindly pardon me for them as I am still a learner” said RJ Roopsha Dasgupta.
Prasenjit Chatterjee who was also present at the book launch event mentioned that he was there simply because the book was a tribute to Roopsha’a late mother. “I am well aware of the importance that one’s mother has in his/her life. This is the very reason why I agreed to come to the event the moment she called me up. This is a great step that she has taken” said the renowned actor.
The book launch ceremony was followed by a poem reading session where Ropsha read some poems from her book.
Published by Ajantrik, the book is readily available at leading book stores in the city.
