And it is better and it is safer it is certainly safer where the lights only glance off obscurity like the merest droplets bouncing off a ledge and on and away and it is safer not to peer up or down or away or within to settle in one’s own sedimentary layer to be gradually […]






Infinity…

Infinity…

But you can always look up At your corner of sky Through glass Between grills Framed by concrete And touch infinity This kept me alive In back rooms And corner offices A single stream of sunshine A streak of rain trailing down a pane The smallest whisper Of eternity You can even see stars Gathered […]






Imagine…

Imagine…

If you cannot see the knife At least imagine it Carry the idea in your mind The possibility of an edge Murderously honed Wielded in attack Feel the steel tear you Consider the possibility Of a stab wound Look around you Watch for edges, for hands Concealed in pockets, behind Backs Listen Most of all, […]






Compliant…

Compliant…

A national distraction A national auction Your money for your patriotism Your hand on your heart Feet on clouds of fervour Head completely emptied Cocooned by propaganda Cushioned by heart’s-talk Robbed of all volition A slave to wild hope And daydreams of destiny Craven, coward, compliant Complicit in a conspiracy Masquerading as a country Pic: […]

Litany

Litany

Duckback raincoat Bata shoes Camel ink Hero pen Nataraj pencils I’ve reached a point Where lists of things Once familiar Comfort me But I don’t believe things are worse The world Was always burning The skies Were always red And the end Was always near Near enough to smell The burning Of time But with […]






Summer

Summer

37 degrees centigrade. Summer’s here Power’s gone Familiar dark and heat City grumbles Truculent Traffic Whispers, mosquitoes Hum India changes It stays the same I need another cup Of chai Jayaprakash Satyamurthy lives in Bangalore.

Declare A Ceasefire In Your Own Heart

Declare A Ceasefire In Your Own Heart

Just heard that a young woman who had been raped and set on fire was left to die by the roadside just around the corner from where I live a few days back. She was found by a neighbour’s dog who was out for a walk. The police whisked her away and there has been […]

The Shadow Over Bangalore

The Shadow Over Bangalore

At this point, the history of the EWS colony in Ejipura is a haze. A dust haze, under fierce sunshine as bulldozers plow away the last bits and pieces of the homes of more than 200 families. Fragments swim into focus now and then. ** The corporation-built housing blocks that were so shoddy they became […]






I See Myself…

I See Myself…

I see myself as a man standing Between two buckets. A tube runs from each bucket into a vein: Input, output Both buckets contain a grayish, gleaming, translucent Substance One bucket is labeled Past and the other is labeled Future I see myself as a crow on your balcony pecking At rice stained with turmeric […]






Fade Out

Fade Out

I woke up one morning and I couldn’t hear E anymore. The note, not the letter. It was just gone. I first noticed it on the way to work, listening to an old mixtape of classic rock songs, wondering how come I hadn’t remembered how jagged and minimalistic these wayback arena rockers really were all […]

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!"
