The Forgotten Seed

The Forgotten Seed

The abandoned seed, Martyr of its creed, helps  others to grow. The first random rain-drops Falling from the dark clouds On the scorching earth below Vanish into thin vapours, And yet…!   Wakes up The languorous land, To take in The torrential rains With open arms. For each great shift Seeks sacrifices Of some pious souls, […]

No, War Is Not A Sport We Can Play On A Whim

No, War Is Not A Sport We Can Play On A Whim

One newspaper memory lingers from the terrifying months of the Kargil war. There were two photos side by side on the front page of a national daily. One celebrating India’s win over Pakistan in a World Cup match and another one referring to the Army recapturing a key sector, if I remember correctly. In their […]

The working class continues to exist on a pittance, and the politicians continue to roll in rivers of money. I was […]

Review: In the Jungles of the Night

Review: In the Jungles of the Night

  First a sort of disclaimer: I grew up on a steady diet of Corbett’s tales of the man-eaters he had encountered and bested; and later on, I grew to really like Stephen Alter’s accounts of life of men and mountains.   So this was a double delight for me: Stephen Alter in the voice […]






The Bangalore No Headline Can Sum Up

The Bangalore No Headline Can Sum Up

After spending my formative years in a terrorism scarred state, I feel almost invulnerable on the streets of Bangalore. This is a fundamentally gentle city, usually too diffident and polite to give offence.

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!"
