Satarupa was born in Shillong on a beautiful May morning in 1970. Due to her father's roaming style of living she could not lay down her roots in any of the towns of Guwahati, Agra, Patna where she grew up. This constant loss of friends and teachers and schools left a gap in her heart which could be filled by poetry. Her first poetry at the age of 14 was sung in her school annual function, at 16 first poetry published in 'The Statesman'. From then they were published from various publication desks. Apart from poetry she writes short stories, essays and gazals, Hindi being a favorite language of hers.
