Poetry occupies in the life of not only an artist, but also of the ordinary man in West Bengal with its capital Calcutta an important position. For Papia Ghoshal poetry forms a natural and very strong part of her work and of her existence. It also forms one of the very important inspirational sources for her painting.

Through poetry, Papia celebrates and worships a woman and freely explore all aspects of womanhood. As a matter of fact, freedom forms the main feature of her poetry, as much as serenity. All is then directed to Love as the purest manifestation of being. Thus she unconsciously addresses all phenomena, which were most worshiped by surrealists in the boom of their movement and which have not yet been fully grasped.
