Geeta Chhabra was born in Amritsar (North India), the seat of the holiest of Sikh shrines, the Golden Temple. In her early years, she imbibed the aesthetic and spiritual vibrations of this holy city. Following her schooling, she went to the famous institute of St. Bede's at Shimla for graduation. Married to a visionary shipping entrepreneur, she got the opportunity of traveling extensively to various parts of the world. This exposure also helped her to hone her sensitivities in the fields of art, music and literature.

Her experiences and observations, her emotional reactions and intuitive perceptions, and her responses to the ever-changing human and natural phenomena, propelled her to expressing herself in verse. Later, she was fortunate to have received the guidance of the late Nissim Ezekiel, considered to be one of the greatest modern (English) poets of the Indian sub-continent.

Geeta Chhara’s poems in English have been translated into the Arabic language by the well-known Emirati poet, Dr. Shihab Ghanem. Her translated work has featured in reputed Arabic journals and newspapers such as Al Thaqafiah, Al Ittihad, Al Bayan, Al Khaleej Cultural Supplement, Al Rafed Magazine, Likai Tarsom Sawrat Tayer – book by Dr. Shihab Ghanem.

Geeta Chhabra’s two books: An Indian Ode To The Emirates & No Journey Ends are published by Motivate Publishing. Forthcoming, are more publications in poems and prose.

Her poems are also featured in Brown Critique & Soul Asylum Poetry.
