Why Are Bollywood Actresses Afraid Of The F-Word?

Why Are Bollywood Actresses Afraid Of The F-Word?

Lisa Haydon was the latest some time back to join the bandwagon of Bollywood actresses who say, “I’m not a feminist.”   Vidya Balan has said it too, so has Madhuri Dixit and many others.  So why are Bollywood actresses so scared of the F-word? I do accept the fact that people could have different […]






How Hate Trumped The World

How Hate Trumped The World

The US elections saddened me beyond belief.  I didn’t know that an election process in a part of the world so far away from mine would impact me to such an extent. Truth be told, it has. I’ve considered myself an optimist and have always banked on the hope that the world is slowly gaining momentum towards […]






Halfway There..

Halfway There..

  Forty five. I just turned forty five today. That number is considered by many as exactly halfway through life.  And I did stop and reflect about how I feel, having reached that milestone. It feels no different, truth be told. Life, so far, has been a very interesting journey – a very agreeable, equitable one.  […]

Middle Age Musings

Middle Age Musings

Thoughts do have this tendency to turn inwards more often, especially when one is in ones mid-forties.  I mean, forty plus years of life experiences have to provide for a rather myriad range of experiences – with all the good, the bad, and the in betweens, all factored in and accounted for.  My thoughts too have been […]






The Anatomy Of Sexism

The Anatomy Of Sexism

  It all started with the outlet tube of the washing machine snapping open at the joint, a couple of weeks back.  The existing tape had to be removed, the outlet pipes fitted together again properly and taped up securely with insulation tape.  Once I was done repairing the pipe, casual conversation led to me […]






Just Another Dream

Just Another Dream

There was something amiss.  He could not put his finger on it but a part of his brain knew there was something definitely wrong.  “I can’t tax my brains right now” he muttered to himself.  “Getting up so early in the morning during such harsh winters is bad enough” he grumbled.  His hand felt something […]






Being A Woman

Being A Woman

  What is a woman ?  Is she just a daughter, a wife, a mother,  an aunt, a niece, a cousin, a sister – well, the labels can go on and on and on.  Truth be told, I guess no woman will ever fit into just one of those categories.  In saying that, I mean […]






Nirbheek: A Solution to Rape?

Nirbheek: A Solution to Rape?

I read this article in The Times of India the other day, with a growing sense of dismay.  No – am not talking of accidents, murders or rapes.  Those seem to be happening as routinely as clockwork, even now.  I’m talking of Nirbheek (I believe that’s what it is called).  Nirbheek is said to be India’s first gun for women, a […]






The Way Of Tolerance

The Way Of Tolerance

When one takes a good long look  at the people around us, the world in general – what does one see ? Does one see peace, harmony, equality or does one see discrimination, prejudice, inequity ? One look and it is only too evident that if there is one thing definitely on the increase, it is intolerance. […]






The Chatter About God

The Chatter About God

We believe that God made this Universe and populated our World with His creatures including his masterful creation, humankind. Strangely, we also believe that He then called all those he had made in his own image and said, “I now pronounce you Hindu and Muslim. And Jew and Christian and Buddhist and Jain and Sikh.” […]

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!"
