Deyasini Roy

Deyasini Roy is a promising young poet who hails from Chandannagar, a town in the Indian state of West Bengal. She’s recently pursued her postgraduate degree in English and Comparative Literature from Pondicherry University, India.  Poetry occupied a conspicuous part of her childhood and therefore she would certainly spare no pains in seeing her tender thoughts sprout. She’s greatly influenced by the British and American Romantic Poets especially William Wordsworth and Walt Whitman. She’s contributed to the esteemed International Almanac of World Poetry, Cascade and Sunup and various International Online Magazines of repute including The Glomag, The Harbinger Asylum, Different Truths and Universul Culturii of late. She has won a few poetry contests online and was conferred with the South Asian Literary Award by Sahitya Deshkaal, The Mirror of Time on 3rd of November 2019.  She is an incorrigible dreamer, an itinerant sunseeker and an ebullient Naturephile whose joyous acquiescence in the free spirit of Nature ensures her traversing into the abyss of unknown. She loves to set recourse to the idyllic and pastoral and  record her impressionably sensitive response to the lilting cadence of Nature rendered in a swirl of lurid slashes and subtle brush strokes. She envisions Nature beyond her mortal eyes in a celestial choir lending subdued shades to her canvas and her world invariably imbues with its transcending colours.
