The book of poems titled Aayna is a tribute to her mother, Sushmita Dasgupta whom she lost at the age of twenty three.

Poem Book-Aayna

“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.
