Delhi Beat: Pavement Treasures

Delhi Beat: Pavement Treasures

Kitaab Bazaar or the Patri (pavement) Book Market in Darya Ganj, in the walled city of Old Delhi, is an institution in its own right. The pavements of this oldest commercial hub of the Capital, which bustles with activity from Monday to Saturday, continue to be the venue of one of the largest known markets for […]






Love In The Indian Joint Family

Love In The Indian Joint Family

Everybody loves a love story, especially a real life one. But, while stories of people who had the courage to break the bounds of convention hold universal appeal, there also exist real life stories of deep and abiding love between people who live out their lives within the shackles of convention, in soul-destroying conditions, and […]






Delhi Beat: A Mouthful Of Bliss

Delhi Beat: A Mouthful Of Bliss

Delhi summers are to die of. Not for. Come school vacations and Delhiites head for the hills in droves—the middle class to domestic hill stations and the affluent to ‘foreign’ ones. Those constrained by work schedules take refuge in air conditioned offices and homes. Shopaholics abandon the open air markets and head for air conditioned […]






To Mamma, With Love …

To Mamma, With Love …

I don’t think we ever saw eye to eye About anything under the great blue sky; In fact, as Dad often says: We were a pair of book-ends, looking opposite ways. But now, as I see my own child grow In a mould that I, oh! so intimately know, I’ve come to realize so many […]






Delhi Beat: Traffic Snarls!

Delhi Beat: Traffic Snarls!

A neighbour’s teenaged children leave home every evening for about an hour when it’s time for him to come home. Visits to friends, trips to the market, or to the sports complex, are all scheduled around this time to avoid Dad, who comes home spitting and snarling as a result of having battled Delhi’s office […]

Keeping Our Children Safe

Keeping Our Children Safe

Yesterday’s newspapers were ablaze with the horrendous story of the five year-old child in Ghaziabad who died as a result of sexual assault while the parents kept the incident under wraps as the perpetrator was a family member. According to statistics released by Tulir Centre for Prevention and Healing of Child Sexual Abuse (CSA), 40 […]






Delhi Beat: A Mouthful of Memories

Delhi Beat: A Mouthful of Memories

“Every time I come to Delhi, I find it completely changed”, wails a childhood friend who has lived away from the city of her birth ever since she got married. Indeed, she has reason to lament. Her annual, long visits to the capital are enlivened by manic shopping excursions to all the main markets of […]






Delhi Beat: Flags of Faith

Delhi Beat: Flags of Faith

During Navratri, the nine-day festival of the Mother Goddess, the entire five-mile radius around the Jhandewalan temple complex on Rani Jhansi Road in central Delhi is a beehive of activity round-the-clock, giving a whole new meaning to the term, ‘the city never sleeps’! The sight of the affluent in all their finery, arriving in large […]






Fasting And Feasting

Fasting And Feasting

It’s the Basant Navratri again—the nine day spring festival that heralds the onset of the New Year according to the traditional Hindu Vikrami calendar—when devotees observe fasts that culminate in the celebration of Durga Ashtami on the eighth lunar day and Ram Navami (the birth of Lord Rama) on the ninth day. “Now, who will […]






Tryst With Euphoria

Tryst With Euphoria

As India took to the streets at midnight to celebrate the World Cup victory, my grandfather’s reminiscences about the night of independence, when the whole of Delhi converged to the Red Fort to usher in freedom from British rule, came to mind. The only difference was that this time the crowds converged to India Gate, […]






Delhi Beat: Layers and Textures

Delhi Beat: Layers and Textures

‘A textured experience’ is how a friend, returning to Delhi after nearly two decades spent in various parts of the world, describes the city. Although it has been bestowed with numerous epithets, both complimentary and opprobrious—a melting pot of cultures, a medley of the old and new, a confluence of influences, a city with many […]

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!"
