Dr. Rita De, INDIA


Women are the better-half 
Mankind must know it
Women bring forth the children 
Women nurse them
Women give them company 
Throughout the life
If man destroy their better-half
They are foredoomed to destruction. 

Women are the stuff
With which you make poetry
If women ever wield the gun
God must help the human race.


To become consumers
You must learn 
The art of restraining yourself 
You cannot eat the cake 
And have it too.
Protect woman.                                          
And preserve woman 
Instead of destroying them
Impelled by your lust.

Dr. Rita De (B. 1955) with Masters in Geography and English Literature and a PhD in Pali, takes pride in calling herself a soldier of the Underground Literature - they both commenced their journey together in 1978. Over the years, the publishing house has nourished itself with many books from her in English and Bengali and across genres like poems, fiction, research papers and survey reports. Her spiritual and transcendental renderings have transformed themselves into several anthologies. Dr. Rita De’s poetry is spontaneous and provokes the readers to think differently. Her poetry has been appreciated nationally and internationally and has been translated in French. She is regularly invited to various national and international poetry and literary events to read her poetry and research papers. She writes short stories too.
