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.” […]






The Precipice

The Precipice

“Just one step, just one step” echoed the voices inside his head.  He could taste the fear at the back of his throat, his head buzzed.  “There is no way out,” said the same voices, inside his head.  “Just one more step and you shall know peace like you never have before,” said the same voices, sounding […]






Honeymoon, Roses And Hell

Honeymoon, Roses And Hell

  It had been good but things had changed between them.  What had started out as a fling had become something much more to Susan.  “Women,” he muttered under his breath, shaking his head incredulously.  She had been absolutely still, motionless when he had told her that they could not continue seeing each other.  Then came the tears.  “I put on […]






Why We Must Never Forget

Why We Must Never Forget

I’ve been asking myself this question for quite some time now.  The gang rape in Delhi served to make it more urgent.  “Where is our country headed ?”  I’m sure lots of other people too, pretty much like me, are echoing the despair that one feels within oneself.  Our country is steeped in a shroud […]






Remembering Nirbhaya

Remembering Nirbhaya

She’s been named Damini, Braveheart, Nirbhaya and counting.  Now we know her real name and to that 23- year- old girl from Delhi, I, for one, doff my hat.  If ever we’ve seen a symbol of courage, of hope, of fortitude, of fighting against all odds, she’s been it.  ** Having been subjected to the […]






The Basement

The Basement

His hands were red.  The metallic, coppery smell still hung in the air.  It was messy but he still had a lot of time left, with her.  He grinned to himself as he headed towards the kitchen and helped himself to a cold beer.  A slow, wicked grin spread across his face as he imagined […]






Words..

Words..

“Speech is a virtue”, insisted Dan.  “Opinions differ” countered Sarah. “If we could not speak, we would not have been here” said Dan. “Exactly” said Sarah “we would not have been where we are now” she said, rather wistfully. They had grown old together and it felt good – these little breaks that they had, […]






Reflection..

Reflection..

The creak of a door hinge registered in her subconscious mind.  It was cold, windy.  The wind shrieked and howled outside and she felt the cold seeping into her bones.  Wrapped in a warm blanket, hot chocolate in hand, she watched the news.   “Mob lynchpin breaks out of prison” flashed the headlines.  Thoughts flitted to […]






Loss of Credibility

Loss of Credibility

I had scoffed at Asaram Bapu’s statement when he said that a sure shot way to prevent rape is to call the would-be-rapist “bhaiyya”.   The Khap in Haryana added more flavour by coming out with statements that pointed towards Chinese food as the culprit behind rapes, not men.  Mohan Bhagwat went a step further by claiming Western […]






The Saffron Solution!

The Saffron Solution!

The Indian Railways have introduced a mandatory training program for their staff. It is imperative that every single official in the Indian Railways, right from the signalman to the station masters to the Mechanical Engineers not just undergo this training, it is absolutely vital that they pass this program with flying colours. Their jobs are […]






The Industry Of Self-Image

The Industry Of Self-Image

I came across this ad / poster when one of my friends posted it on a social networking site.  I found it really offensive but thinking beyond the gut reaction, I really did not know what disturbed me more – the ad itself or the fact that people would actually fall for the ad and […]






Abused But Passive?

Abused But Passive?

  A lot has been seen and heard about the new anti-domestic violence campaign by the ad agency Taproot India.  Their “abused goddesses” ad has been making the rounds in social media websites, social networking sites and has received a lot of coverage in many newspapers and journals in India and around the world.  Many newspapers have […]

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!"
