You Are Not Alone

You Are Not Alone

You can be surrounded by a room full of people and still feel alone…alone in your frustrating circumstances, grappling with seemingly inconsequential problems that no one really sees as problems. How you wish you had someone who would understand. And you could draw strength from your loved ones and fall back on their support. And […]






When The Odds Stack Up

When The Odds Stack Up

Many a time we find ourselves in uncomfortable situations over and over again. Try as we might to deal with the past and bury it, some patterns keep repeating. At some point I came across an explanation for this phenomenon. Until you make peace with something or deal with it appropriately it refuses to go […]






The City And I

The City And I

It’s funny how the city grows on you and makes you a part of her, no matter how hard you resist. The chaos swirling in the air grabs you in a vice-like grip and slowly but surely saps everything within until you join the hollow-faced endless crowd of humanity. Their listless eyes looking to the horizon, dragging […]






How To Incorporate Gratitude in Your Life

How To Incorporate Gratitude in Your Life

In the midst of the recent dark days of my soul, a dear friend called me. She was doing this exercise in gratitude every day where she would write and give thanks for something that she wanted but was yet to manifest in her life. It was something that I had told her to do […]






And Chennai Soared…

And Chennai Soared…

As I wait for the city to limp back to life between power cuts, internet troubles and cell phones with no signal, I feel like I have been stripped down to the bare minimum. No more escaping reality by drowning oneself in technology. Suddenly there is too much free time and too many people around […]






The Bottomless Craving For Approval

The Bottomless Craving For Approval

I caught myself the other day counting the number of likes on my Facebook page and it looked like I just needed five more likes to hit 100. It was a big thing and I wanted to make a big deal out of it. So I went about looking for images of the like button […]






Finding Gratitude In Soapy Water

Finding Gratitude In Soapy Water

This is not my regular Thanksgiving post where I give thanks for all my blessings. The brainwave for this post came about when I was washing dishes – anyone who knows me knows how much I hate doing dishes. As I sunk my fingers into the dishwashing detergent (because the dish rag was dirty), my […]






Shine Your Light

Shine Your Light

My recent posts after I moved to Chennai from America had one thing in common. Misery.  Where was the hope? Where was the inspiration? It was there buried somewhere but you really had to look for it. So much for being the “enlightened” one, who dabbles in yoga, reiki and all the new age mumbo jumbo and then […]






The Energy of Allowing

The Energy of Allowing

On my 30th birthday, my husband gifted me Eckhart Tolle’s book, A New Earth – Awakening to Your Life Purpose. This book joined the select list of books that ‘changed my life’. It is not a book you can skim through, with so many complex ideas and concepts that delve deep into the human psyche. […]






Breaking Free

Breaking Free

Can’t drive, don’t have a job and hanging on to the last shred of sanity. That pretty much describes my situation today. And I’ve been there before – in some other place, at some other time in my life. And it is a scary place to be. What’s even scarier is the belief that you […]






When You Can’t Play The Escape Artist

When You Can’t Play The Escape Artist

  Avoid. Delay. Procrastinate. Distract. Quit. Run. This is what I do when things don’t go my way. It’s always easier than confronting the problems. Or so I thought till I learned it the hard way. I ran away to Pondicherry to do my M.S. thinking that my problems would stay behind in Chennai. But […]






Who Stole My Childhood?

Who Stole My Childhood?

  Running carefree with naked feet, Reaching for mangoes up in the trees, Endless summer days of fun, Spent in the lap of the sun.   Hours spent in glee with friends both imaginary and real, Board games, hopscotch, badminton and dolls, Trips to the beach on moonlit nights, And ice cream treats to beat the heat. […]

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!"
