So Hard To Give A Girl Her Due

So Hard To Give A Girl Her Due

Yes, it is just so hard. To not appropriate her success. So recently there was a Facebook post by Loyola students about how PV Sindhu’s father’s education at Loyola had something to do with her recent triumph. Another FB page dug out a picture of Sindhu in traditional regalia to show the ”feminists” that she could […]

A Blinding Flash

A Blinding Flash

“Minutes after he walked unhesitatingly into the crowd, there was a deafening sound as the bomb spluttered to life and exploded in a blinding flash. Everything changed. A moment that, in my head, will always be frozen in time. It was exactly 10.21 p.m.” Neena Gopal’s The Assassination of Rajiv Gandhi gives a blow-by-blow account of the […]






The Bluest City

The Bluest City

I am sitting by Lake Shore Drive on my last day in Chicago. A woman is sitting by the shore, sketching the long skyline of Chicago. A gay couple kiss each other. A group of girls celebrate their friend’s birthday party. And a naughty Baltimore Oriole chases me. I sit there for hours with my […]






How Wild It Is, To Let It Be

How Wild It Is, To Let It Be

Boo is resting after her morning walk; her head is on her favourite panda and she seems to be half-asleep, as though she is reluctant to slip into slumber because she wants to include herself in my parents’ conversation. My parents are having their breakfast, listening to some devotional songs, and discussing the beautiful, mundane things in […]






When We Connect…

When We Connect…

From a very young age, I was terrified of dogs. This continued till I was in my mid- thirties. It would annoy my husband when refused to walk further if a dog was spotted at the end of the street. One day I noticed my neighbour struggling to feed her new dog.  I discovered that […]

And so are Ron and Hermione! And Hagrid, Snape, Cedric Diggory and Dumbledore, (don’t ask), Moaning Myrtle and oh, quite a few of the Hogwarts lot we have come to know and like. It’s a new adventure, it contains all the requisite dangers, and never mind that […]






When Misogyny Is Not Just Male

When Misogyny Is Not Just Male

Internet sensation Ssumier S Pasricha’s recent video about Pammi aunty mocking a dark, overweight woman at a Teej function evoked mixed reactions. Was he mocking, dark and overweight women? Or was he mocking the women who mock them? If you watch his videos closely, every little narrative is about a woman deriding another woman, establishing the […]






The Unaccountable Frat Brothers of Bollywood

The Unaccountable Frat Brothers of Bollywood

While channel surfing a few days back, I saw Mika Singh punning upon Diana Penty’s surname and adding to good effect, “And Mika Kaccha!” I guarantee that you will not hear anyone in the film fraternity rising up in instinctive disgust over this comment just as most of them kept quiet when Salman Khan rose […]






We Are The Reason Why Shobha De Is Still Relevant

We Are The Reason Why Shobha De Is Still Relevant

Let us not blame Shobha De for her arrogance. And keep name calling out of this issue. Let us first blame ourselves because we have never questioned her self-appointed and media facilitated role as one of the nation’s foremost opinion mongers. The fact that we have never questioned her credentials when she  is invited to […]

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!"
