The Demon Is Here To Stay

The Demon Is Here To Stay

India is grappling with a new alphabet. A is for ATM ka line. B is for Black Money. C is for Cash. Or rather for the lack of Currency. D is for Demonetisation. D is also for overwhelming Distress across the country. E is for Extreme measures. H is for Heart Attack. N is for Nation. […]

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!"
