Gopali Ghosh is a valuable member of Vaani. Here is her vaani...

The women who live in my stories have their genesis in the experiences I have had and the shared experiences of my fellow women.
They are women who have loved and struggled to come to terms with life in an alien land where the only strength they have had to rely on is their own. Some of these stories were inspired by people I saw at airports, at shopping malls and the recycling centre! The thematic connection between all these women is that they have a life beyond the one prescribed for them by society, which they have had to discover through pleasant or unpleasant means but they have all ended up as being the stronger for it. My agenda is not an overtly feminist one, but one where women discover the latent strength within themselves.
My name is Gopali Ghosh. I have lived in the UK for 16 years and have taught English Literature and Language for some time now in various schools.


Call for Monthly Submission

Hi Ladies
We are open to submission from Asian women writers who live in the UK. This months prompt is 'Imagine.' Please feel free to send in your bit on the subject.
Happy writing!



Imagine the world where there is no air
we would be shrunken stiff.
Imagine the life without a lie
there would not be a reason to live.
Imagine the morning without the tea
there'd hardly be any action in me.
Imagine if there was no imagination
the world would've tough time to be.



The eyes flicked about aimless
The fists tightened and relaxed spasmodic
The legs shook, sometimes vigorous, sometimes lazy
The back flexed, curved then straight like a rod then curved again,
A bow ready with an arrow to shoot
A nerve ready to break out of the skin playing its wild music at the small of a temple
A long shadow on the wretched body, cut it in half
half dead, half alive.
