He called up Gehlot after returning. His phones and Internet connections were handled by specialists; they left no traces. No one could guess the place or country of their origin.

“Have you made the arrangements to meet me in Switzerland?” He asked after casual conversation. “I am waiting for this meeting impatiently.” He said after hearing the affirmative, then continued after a pause, “Take a break of at least a month.”

He left India after a day, after finishing some petty work, then headed for Mexico. The people who knew him in India were told he was heading for the Himalayas to spend some time with his Guru, in his ashram situated in a God-forbidden area.

No one knew that he was his own Guru; the ashram was built by him and he himself ran it. There were select people living there who kept changing. It was the hill resort for the high rung employees.

He landed in the ashram and a Mexican left the ashram that day, Mr. Santana, a man born and brought up in Mexico, who often came to India for spiritual guidance and stayed at the ashram for a few months at a stretch.

Mr. Santana had his own ranch in a small village in Mexico, a very ordinary ranch, with cows and cowboys; his cowboys had a reputation for being trigger-happy. Mr. Santana was a bitter, brooding man, an old man who married a pretty girl. She ran away with a huge fortune and his favourite cowboy.

He became a bitter and suspicious man who rarely allowed anyone in his vicinity. His ashram friends sometimes held meetings at his place or visited him; they were the only ones welcome to his household.

This ranch was his retreat from society. He spent time there whenever he could. He was a wanderer, and spent much of his time wandering around the world without purpose. After all, a man who lost his love and millions of dollars ought to lose his mind, too.

“Another visitor from India?” Jennifer asked.

“Yes, one Gurmeet Singh, another disciple of his Indian guru.” Maxim replied.
Jennifer was not one of his employees; he did not allow women in his employment. She was Maxim’s lover. Maxim worked as housekeeper in the ranch.

“Go now. Santana will return today, from tomorrow I will meet you at your home after I am done here.” He pecked her on the cheek. Everyone saw Santana’s ghost in the ranch even when he was not around.

Jennifer quickly slipped away through the backyard.

Rest in the March 2018 book.

I know many of you are already thinking that most of my posts in my blogs are my old works, years old quite often. Where are my new works? Have I stopped writing new ones?

Well I am still writing and painting as enthusiastically as before. But these days they are channeled into four other platforms- my annual republished kindle books (https://amazon.com/author/sharmishthabasu) -they devour quite a huge no. of stories and poems every year. Quite a lot!

my bookstore in shoptly (https://shoptly.com/sharmishthabasu) Another section goes to my shoptly bookstore, here I not only publish my monthly Ezines Agnijaat and Agnishatdal I also publish a set of books of poetry and story. They are quite merrily illustrated and are available as pdf files. Yes you can read them perfectly in your cellular phone and of course in computer.

My twin Ezines Agnijaat and Agnishatdal (both English, monthlies) don’t feature much stories or poems but publish all my new essays and articles and again, truckload of illustrations.

and my patreon profile (https://patreon.com/sharmishthabasu) This one again contains bunch of stories, poems and they almost always are illustrated. If not then the stories are very long and of the type that can’t be illustrated.

I have been so stuck up with my creations that I have ignored my blogs and other social media profiles since 2015 I believe. So, if you enjoyed my works quite amply then I think it is high time that I bring you up to date, to share what I am creating these days and how can you get them!

It will be a lengthy affair, so have patience. I will be updating you about my four years of hyperactive creativity!

I will start with Patreon. It is sort of my launch-pad to make my creativity actually become my career. So since creating my profile there I have been updating 5 works each month, two are the Ezines, the remaining three are writing and paintings. Works my blogger friends thoroughly enjoyed. Stories and poems with ample amount of illustrations!

Anyone who becomes my patron there can chose from few tiers-

You can check them from my profile- https://patreon.com/sharmishthabasu

I will share some works from there, hoping they will impress potential patrons, readers who love the stories/poems I write and will love to get a few of them each month. We all have our monthly quota of books we feed the bookworms inside our brain! I did before I started spending that time into writing and painting. I used to read almost anything I could lay my hands on. So I can guess there are many bookworms like me out there who are not writers, just readers and maybe a few of them will get hooked by my writing.

Author:

A bookworm transformed into an addicted writer. I love to write and illustrate them myself. By love I mean love, no half-hearted relationship, a full-fledged, passionate love, I can’t pass two days in a stretch without writing/painting (cyber), just feel empty like lovers do when their lovers are away on a tour! Even though I am thoroughly enjoying self-publishing with amazon, but if you like my work and want to publish my works in your magazine, books or better if you want to publish a book of my works please make me very happy by contacting me. Or if you want to sell my works on commission basis only!! contact me, I will be quite relieved. Honestly writing and selling your own work is a very BORING combination. So you are more than welcome! Mail me @sharmishthabasu@hotmail.com, sermistabasu@gmail.com or go to- I have one too many blogs, so... just pick up the one you love best from here: mydomainpvt.wordpress.com (You will get the link to my remaining blogs there) or you can check out my ezines- monthly- Agnishatdalezine.wordpress.com And Agnijaat.wordpress.com linkedin- [Invite me from your linkedin a/c] linkedin.com/authorsharmishthabasu my email id sharmishthabasu@hotmail.com and sermistabasu@gmail.com I am in goodreads and completelynovel too http://www.goodreads.com/sharmishthabasu http://completelynovel.com/sharmishtha-basu http://amazon.com/author/sharmishthabasu I guess I said enough about myself, right? You will forget if I stuff too much here, so if you are curious to know this humble creature just join me in my blogs :)
