About Sumita

Sumita considers herself as a writer for all reasons. She has written most of her adult life starting with a book of stories at the age of eleven. After an unsuccessful attempt to get into journalism school Sumita fell head first, into advertising copywriting and that started an affair of a lifetime (at the risk of sounding a tad cheesy). Today Sumita is a not so lean and mean writing machine displaying capabilities in many styles. Check out the offerings on display and do get back to her with your feedback and requests for writing work - sumita@sumitachakrabarty.com

And then, there were two!

Six years after knowing V and meeting her frequently, I found out that there were two of her. It was a strange sensation. How often do you come across a scenario like this? Almost, never. But here she was, with another version of herself and...

On being violated

I've never been raped. But I have been violated. Emotionally, mentally and physically and it had left in me feelings of powerlessness, defeat and self-loathing that took years to clean. Ask any woman and she will tell you that deep within her is a core...

The alternate universe…is there one?

The reality of more than one universe is something that has long intrigued philosophers and physicists. Could someone lead parallel lives in two separate universes? It was when I saw The Matrix with its bold concept of conscious shifting transformation that the penny dropped. Seemed...

Desgarradora del alma Machu Picchu

My first view of Machu Picchu was from the adjoining hilltop, along with at least fifty odd people who had come from all over the world to gaze on this wonder. For me, this trip was a pilgrimage for which I had waited seventeen years...

Horseback riding adventurer

There is a horseback riding adventurer in my genes. He lived, by some accounts, during the time of the First World War or thereabouts. He had a majestic beard, wore rimless glasses and had the spirit of a lion tamer. He lived and loved the...

Mythical creature – 1

Prahoor/Myonepona - The Sentinel Deep, deep gaze. Strong neck and shoulders. Hooked, beak like nose. Short and wiry arms that have a steel like grip. Tightly muscled torso and very long legs that can scale walls and jump over obstacles easily. She has a third eye...

The Revenge

All her life G wanted to be the ultimate party girl. Hanging out with friends who would praise her jewelry and clothes. Tell her how accomplished she is and how perfect is her life. She wanted to have money to spend, a husband who would...

Everyone gets her Badhai Ho moment

First the disclaimer - I'm not promoting this delightfully crazy, charming movie. The poster is for reference only. It is my firm belief that in every life there comes a Badhai Ho (loosely translated, it means 'congratulations to you') moment. This belief is completely unsupported by...

Clutter in the age of design thinking

The mind is a cluttered up place where stray thoughts, half-remembered insults and little bubbles of happiness jostle for space. A gossamer thin veil of forgetfulness covers this randomness. Lately I've wondered if it is possible to bring some order to it with new age...

The Dragon Slayer – Contd.

Cholera found Nityananda at the age of 43 and his dazzling story was forced to come to a premature end in the village of Kelisahar where his family lived. By modern standards, Kelisahar which is a part of Chittagong district, continues to be a village. It...
