Novel Watch: ‘Culling Mynahs and Crows’

Novel Watch: ‘Culling Mynahs and Crows’

I’ve known Rumjhum Biswas  (or RK Biswas) for some years now. I have read her poetry and her short stories, so am happy her first novel is just out. It’s set in a very intriguing time, as she explains it. So if you’ve seen and read about Calcutta of the 1960s and 1970s from, and this is by way […]






A Storyteller’s World

A Storyteller’s World

  Rajat Chaudhuri’s Hotel Calcutta has just been published (Niyogi Books, 2013). He lives in Kolkata,  and besides his novels, he has also written short stories, essays and book reviews.  The few questions I asked Rajat below are really not enough to convey the richness and variety of his writing work but his answers I […]






All Our Selves..

All Our Selves..

When crimes against women increasingly make shocking headlines and figures citing how different crimes against them are rising all the time,  one explanation most readily given  is that it is a time of transition,  or even confusion.  India,  we hear,  is a modernizing, young nation  though large sections remain conservative, patriarchal,  reluctant to change.   And […]

Sunil Gangopadhyay (1934-2012)-In Memoriam

  Silence the conch shells stop the dhakis at their drums the winter air this festive season nips sharp for the  writer’s gone. His pen that  spilled over into thousands of words and more will write no more. The writer whose words could make my father’s voice  mellow and ruminative when he read him out […]






Book Review: The Broken Path

Book Review: The Broken Path

There’s nothing new you might say about chefs writing a book.   Of all writers who don’t actually have to perforce write for a living,  chefs arguably are the most prolific.  You might say they have a subject ready at hand – recipes, sundry food related matters, even advice on how to open a restaurant. This […]






22 Years After Mandal

22 Years After Mandal

  It’s 22 years almost to the day now and  no one remembers him:  The second person who immolated himself following the VP Singh government’s decision to implement the Mandal Commission recommendations. Surinder Singh Chauhan perished,  unlike Rajeev Goswami (who died in 2004),  pictures of whose burning body appeared in several papers and made him […]

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!"
