Why We Need To Audaciously Hope..

Why We Need To Audaciously Hope..

Symbols matter. Symbols sum up ideals that are bigger than phraseology and represent the best of humanity. And no one knows how an intangible idea brimming with something vast and indefinable, gets distilled into a symbol and comes to belong to all of us. When artist Shepard Fairey created the iconic Barack Obama poster emblazoned with the word “Hope” in 2008-2009, […]






Time…

Time…

Time has a way with time itself And yet it falters at the close The best of times are untimely… even cursed And the worst of times are best at worst Where does that leave a plan or a scheme Where does a wish get fulfilled Once upon a time Comes but once in a […]






My Own Prison…

My Own Prison…

Fear is a friend. She’s been by my side for as long as I can remember. While most friends tend to drift away or come back into my life sooner or later, she’s never wavered. No matter how safe a country, city, street or home is, she’s taught me to regard all men with suspicion, […]






On Hope…

On Hope…

  All I see is red. Urgent and arresting red. The blinking lights on the road red. Her hair in the wind red. Molten rage and dry wine red. Wrinkled sheets and horror-filled dreams red. Bonfire embers and crossed out ledgers Demanding a pound of flesh. A rose in a book to remember, A shirt […]






This Too Shall Pass…

This Too Shall Pass…

There are times when we look at the world and feel despair. Events over the months of 2016 and part way across the threshold of 2017, have given us justifiable cause for such malaise. Trump will be president within days. The Syrians are either forgotten or vilified, Britain is leaving the EU, the weather has […]






Askew: A Short Biography Of Bangalore By TJS George

Askew: A Short Biography Of Bangalore By TJS George

It is neither compulsory nor mandatory but I feel the need to make this admission: I am not an outsider. Though not of Kannada origin, I have been a resident of Bangalore/Bengaluru since the start of the 80s. That’s been over three decades, during which I have lived, worked, married, learned the language, savoured the […]






Yes, Artists Must Dissent And So Must We

Yes, Artists Must Dissent And So Must We

While performing a street play in Sahibabad township, on 1 January 1989, Safdar Hashmi, a member of the Communist Party of India , a playwright and activist, was attacked and murdered by the followers of an election candidate. What followed was unexpected. During the staid Doordarshan coverage of  the National Film Festival Awards, Shabana Azmi […]






Drown In The Magic Of Khwab Sa

Drown In The Magic Of Khwab Sa

Khwab Sa, a 120-minute, gloriously colourful musical experience comes to a theatre near you! This is an adaptation of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, performed as a collaborative project with contemporary dance and movement, in Hindi gibberish as spoken word and live contemporary World Music- all performed by various professional artists chosen and brought together from […]






The Stir And The Still

The Stir And The Still

Ripples in the still water … Some stone I threw in playfully when the calmness created boredom, The refulgent rays of the sun dances … as the waves spiral… But the movement disturbs the arrangement… And I lose the oasis of serenity … Fading are the Patterns I am used to… this dichotomy baffles me… […]






Lake Tahoe: America’s Most Beautiful Drive?

Lake Tahoe: America’s Most Beautiful Drive?

The irony is that Americans think their infrastructure is crumbling. Our highways, bridges and roads haven’t kept up, they say. To me, they seem just fine. Better than fine, in fact. Smooth, fast and unblemished. I am happy to be on the road here. We’ve been driving across the country for a few weeks now, […]






New Thoughts In The New Year

New Thoughts In The New Year

I don’t know what it is about a new year that makes us all so optimistic. It is just another year, like the many others that have gone by, leaving behind dreams, aspirations and resolutions that never really took off. And yet every year is vividly different from the one before and the one after […]






A Reality Check Called Om Puri

A Reality Check Called Om Puri

A few days before Om Puri passed away, I shuddered past a YouTube video (obviously fake) that speculated if he had converted to Islam. No prizes at all for guessing why the video had been created. To fan the hate that his support for Pakistani artists had kindled amid patriots whose claim to nationalism is trashing […]

Mission Statement

Who are we? We are writers. And here, in this space, we put pride and passion back into writing. We give ourselves and each other creative freedom and respect.

* We create an environment where content generation does not entail degeneration of inspiration and spirit.
* We create content that we believe in and identify with.
* We recognise that to create is always of more value than to berate.
*We critique without malice and arrogance.

This site is about us writers, what we stand for but more importantly, about creating something valuable, inclusive, thought-provoking. In this space, we do not just stand for ourselves but for all those who listen to a compelling inner voice that tells them, "Create!"
