Doing The Needful!

Doing The Needful!

There is something quite charming about the Indian use of English, something quite contagious about the wonderful Hinglish used in India that is something between Hindi and English. Before I entered into the Office English of India, I was content to muddle along in India speaking a mix of English, Hindi, hand signals and head […]






Painted History

Painted History

Take a small detour from the famous Spice Route of old into a relatively undiscovered part of rural Rajasthan and one of the world’s only open-air art galleries. Painted houses fade like painted ladies of old. Their stately presence, battered shutters and pigeon filled lofts disguise an ancient beauty now fading into red tinged sunsets. […]






Old Man River…

Old Man River…

If a river is the highway of life, cultures and commerce then the Brahmaputra is beyond par in this respect. With the effortlessness of a patriarch, a unique family of man gathers at his side, worships at his feet and accepts his rule with resignation tinged with respect.











This week in Facebook Land

This week in Facebook Land

Remember when hacking was something you did with horses? Remember when you dropped friends or just ‘lost touch’ with them deliberately? Remember when doctors gave you a medicine for a virus? Remember when tagging was something done in a clothing factory?











A Fishwife’s Tale

A Fishwife’s Tale

As the sun sinks into the cold breath of night, the fishwives of Matata roll up their fishing lines, hang the catch on the handlebars of the motorbike and head home to heat the pan.











The Rights of Mother Earth

The Rights of Mother Earth

She is sacred, fertile and the source of life that feeds and cares for all living beings in her womb. She is in permanent balance, harmony and communication with the cosmos.











Kismet

Kismet

What do you know?

Now you are inside the mystery looking out,

and I am on the outside?











Cyber Granny

Cyber Granny

It’s because I grew up in the last century, my romantic vision of myself as a nice little grey haired old granny who lives in a cottage that is always ripe with the smell of cakes baking belongs back there too.That was my grandma. She grew flowers, baked delicious puddings and granted me the absolute freedom to run barefooted through her village and spend long days fishing or idling in a tree with a book in hand











New Zealand, Open for Business

New Zealand, Open for Business

We all know by now the devastation that an Earth Event brings to the communities it visits. As the city of Christchurch struggles gamely to her feet, tourists are left wondering just how safe it is to visit New Zealand. While none of us can second guess Mother Nature, the people of New Zealand are […]






The Heroic Human

The Heroic Human

Far beyond the reactive doomsday predictions and twittering, there in the rubble of worlds torn apart resides that beautiful compassion of the human spirit and for me that is where true heroism begins.











Parting the Eco Curtain

departure.1208700360.map_-of-where-laos-was-bombed-by-us

Children are the biggest casualties whichever way you look at it. If you extrapolate the annual figure of current death from UXO in Laos and multiply it by the amount of years it will take to clear the land then 900,000 people who haven’t even been born yet are doomed to die.











The Last Red Light In Amsterdam

Last Red

“The first time I came here, a black man leapt out of the shadows and screamed at me -‘What to you want? Boy? Girl? Heroin?’ ” Gunnar nods towards the corner of memory as if his arrival were yesterday. “I was absolutely terrified! I thought he was asking if I was a boy or girl! […]

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!"
