As Robert Frost once remarked, “There are three things, after all, which a poem must reach: the eye, the ear, and what we may call the heart or the mind.” Poetry is the most significant and revered form of writing in the world. The reader’s heart has to be touched most of all. Like art, poetry can be quite subjective because its value mostly depends on the emotional connection its audience has with it. Therefore, it might be challenging to evaluate poetry only on its technical merits or to compare one poet to another. Having said that, there is a renowned poet named Upama Ghosh who has achieved amazing success in numerous literary genres and made a lasting impression on her readers with her Bengali and English poems.
