The Wait…

The Wait…

When the soul remains shrouded In the dead silence of a few past days, When the heart lies curled up Too heavy to move; When the sky remains overcast With smoking clouds of pain and agony When words lose their meanings And protests their fire; When things remain As they had been; I look vacantly […]






The Forgotten Seed

The Forgotten Seed

The abandoned seed, Martyr of its creed, helps  others to grow. The first random rain-drops Falling from the dark clouds On the scorching earth below Vanish into thin vapours, And yet…!   Wakes up The languorous land, To take in The torrential rains With open arms. For each great shift Seeks sacrifices Of some pious souls, […]






The Purple Horizon

The Purple Horizon

I sit and watch As the sun goes down into the purple horizon And the eye-lids grow heavy with the weight of years. I strain my eyes, and see… swarming tiny hands From another time-zone Tapping on the window-pane, With umpteen questions Lurking on the finger-tips Seeking to take Stock of my life… What I did […]






When Fingers Talk And People Don’t

When Fingers Talk And People Don’t

The Empty Nest syndrome had frightened me even when my boys were studying. As I live in a small town that doesn’t enjoy the luxury of MNCs and a corporate sector, I knew the little birdies would very soon take wings to scale unknown heights. And the impending ‘retirement’ too had been staring me in […]






In Retrospect

In Retrospect

We always tend to classify our life into well-defined, sharply contoured pigeonholes: childhood – youth – middle age – old age.On a more practical and functional level, we divide this linear time into segments of education, professional life, marriage, parenthood,  retirement and more. But what after that? All through our life, we move on with […]






Innocence In The Time Of War

Innocence In The Time Of War

Fifty years is not a short period of time. From a 12-year-young girl, I have turned into a 62-years-old woman. But the memories of those summer days that made the young mind wonder what was happening around us and why there had been so many changes made in our daily routine, are still so fresh. […]






Aruna Shanbaug: A Tribute

Aruna Shanbaug: A Tribute

  She was no  Nirbhaya…. Not born in the age of fast news; No voices, no candles, no protests, Grieved for her! She hadn’t gone out with a friend; No jeans; no mobiles; No reason for fingers to be pointed! Being a woman, her only fault! Half the world missed her story… A story…. Of […]






Whose Daughter?

Whose Daughter?

“This incident was a storm which came and went. And what was there before it, and what is left behind after it, this is what we need to see.”  (Nirbhaya’s father) This is the parting message that Leslee Udwin’s film ‘India’s Daughter’ closes with. And this is what the film proposes to do. To see whether […]






The Birthday Cake

The Birthday Cake

Not easy To blow out your past In one breath! The dead candles On the birthday cake A jungle of nude trees That had once Sheltered me in their shade. A grudge of betrayal In their silent eyes! ‘We are the milestones Of the arduous trek’. I stand convicted….! Oh! How the Time’s trident- Tomorrow-today-yesterday […]






Writer’s Block

Writer’s Block

The mind fails to catch Ideas floating like sperms Waiting to be hit by conviction; To gestate and come to life Myriad images, like Vibrant butterflies Tempt; and then run amok, In the dark recesses of mind   Across the hills and rivers, My thoughts run wild Then slip through my fingers Like  bubbles bursting in the […]






Khushwant Singh: An Anecdote

Khushwant Singh: An Anecdote

I could have written an article on Khushwant Singh, but I would rather share some very simple but precious  memories. Neither do I claim to be a writer, nor had I ever met Khushwant Singh. I was initiated into his writings with Portrait of a Lady and Mark of Vishnu.  Though he wrote about very simple and […]






The Santa Within

The Santa Within

Floating on the wings of dreams I saw a vision ‘Santa…! How come you’re here? Everyone’s waiting for you! Each for his share of happiness Go shower your goodies on them.’ ** He laughed his jingling laugh Laced with melancholy though ‘I am old, tired, exhausted. Oh! How I wish To pass on this baton […]

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!"
