She has written an astonishing number of poems, stories, and commentary on things Indian over the years. She authors and moderates at least sixteen blogs as of this counting. She has produced a wide range of images to illustrate her works, and has published at least twenty-six book-length collections of her writings and images to date.

With a fertile imagination and keen understanding of social issues in India and thereabouts, her writings encompass such genres as culture, politics, fantasy, science fiction, horror, and matters of the heart. She is the creator and moderator of the twin eZines, Agnishatdal and Agnijaat, and continues her writing and painting unimpeded by those things that would discourage lesser creators of words and images.

She is currently keeps herself busy on hours of writing, reading, and creating evocative images. Tirelessly working on writing and painting projects, she spends much of her time immersed in music while painting, and it shows in the colorful results of her artistry, and writing with the music switched off.

  1. Thanks for the comment on the wave picture.

    I see you live in semi solitude. I love to be alone so I can enjoy whats around me. I have had the pleasure of living on an Island where there are very few people and in the evening I am usually alone. That is when I do most of my painting.

    Your poems are very nice if you fined any painting on my site that go with your poems I would be happy to let you post them with them.

    Thanks George

    1. You are so blessed. i just love ocean in its glory. i can close my eyes and clearly see it rolling (even though i have seen it only twice). my dream has been spending my life in a deserted island. 🙂

  4. Golden Lotus of God’s Love…it sounds like you need a plan B…maybe camouflage?…that is OK as long as she is contented and happy let her enjoy my love….:)

    1. dearest soulbro,
      she is really funny, sweet and cute.
      today i gave her biscuits and she did not ate. was yawning her heads off.
      she is scared to play, she is really a cute and funny cat.
      with lots of love.

  5. Golden Lotus of God’s Love..she knows right where to go for ease and comfort…she feels secure with you and that is why she has come to you…as God pointed her in the right direction also…..you love her and so do I…enjoy my love(+)

  7. dearest soulbro,

    till date she shows her cute little face atleast once every day, but she is slowly refusing biscuits..

    she has so many admirers.. she is so cute … i think all the tom cats in the locality think that, but she doesnot shares their views..

    their feline activities are quite cute to watch, yesterday she was sitting under my window when one of her admirers came.. the poor guy tried to be friend with her and she jumped up in the window.. 🙂

  8. Golden Lotus of God’s Love…she sounds like a bundle of joy and to capture her in video would even be more of a treat..but like you said about the pictures..she is way to modest for the cell phone camera let alone the silver screen…enjoy my love(+)
    soulbro* with a continuance of love and prayers for your happiness

  9. Golden Lotus of God’s Love…
    soulbro*wishing much love and happiness from God and myself always

    (Just in case) 🙂
    Have a lovely week.

  26. Hi there Trisha, glad you stumbled upon one of my posts. You´re a very good writer. So if you don´t mind I´ll be dropping by once in a while to do what I have coined “my cool stalker moves”

  27. I have seen you many different ways, and I see the new gravatar and i find myself delighted because I still love you all the same. You have always been a treasure to me dear sister! I was blessed when you became a part of my world…for all you do is always so very meaningful and inspiring! Thanks for the gift, and may your new week be special, and amazing…hugs and blessings to you Trisha!

  28. I love this page, and didn’t know you liked to be call Trisha. I shall try to remember. You have a lot of books out and soon I shall be reading your Spirits… book. I am just finishing up a book and I plan to read yours next. Glad I found this page… love your poem. From now on, you are my Empress Musie! 😀

    Thank you for all the catching up you did on my blog. I responded to all your messages to show that I did read them all. It was very much appreciated. I shall try to catch up on all your blogs in due course.

    Many blessings and may all of your works be a success! 🙂

    1. Believe me Kevin, try to pick up the blog you love the most and just browse through the others, your blog is an inspiration to us, Indies, you don’t know yet how much it is helping us!

      Actually I was quite allergic to my name before someone pointed me out the courage of the mythical character whose name it was, that some how made me accept it, as for Trisha, well it is fine with me, I picked it up myself but then I did not knew there is a superhit heroine in south india by that name, seems I have a tendency to pick up names that everyone else likes ;(

      1. You’re far too kind.
        I will probably call you all three names… on a whim, in fondness of course: Sharmishtha, Trisha, and Empress Musie. 😀
