The Asparagus Man

The Asparagus Man

In the heart of Kinnaur in Himachal where tourists on their way to the desolate yet beautiful valley of Lahaul and Spiti, often stop by for a breather or some stretch-­the-­legs treks; there lives an old man. With a finely lined face, a green Kinnauri topi on his head and a Zen like peace surrounding his persona, 69­year-­old […]






Unvanquished Light

Unvanquished Light

Only last night, I finished reading Lights Out, a brutally honest book by my former journalist colleague L Subramani who has written about gradually going blind at 18 from a degenerative retinal disease called Retinitis Pigmentosa; and this morning I have this sudden desperate desire to speak to him. I manage to get his number from a common […]

TV in 2013: Jeers And Cheers

TV in 2013: Jeers And Cheers

Despite the rotten eggs we’ve been chucking at them year after year, television channels continued to bombard our bedrooms with unbearable nonsense in 2013 as well. The serials were absolute rubbish which is why we didn’t watch them at all. The reality shows were fake and scripted so we’re not wasting time reviewing those either. […]






When Heroes Fall

When Heroes Fall

Hard as it is to believe now, Tarun Tejpal was my hero. Not just from his early Tehelka days when he took on the establishment fearlessly and showed us what journalism was all about but from 19 years back when he was the features editor of Financial Express and I was a rookie reporter into […]






Singapore: Of Satay And Sea Lions

Singapore: Of Satay And Sea Lions

At the Singapore Zoo Splash Pool, Philip – a wet and slippery 300 kg sea lion with twinkling black eyes, – lurks dangerously close. He slowly turns his huge head so that his whiskers graze my ear and bends to peck my cheek. A picture is clicked and the moment preserved for posterity. I can die in […]






Langkawi – A Little Bit Of Everything

Langkawi – A Little Bit Of Everything

To the music of the waves lapping the moonlit sands and Bruce Springsteen trying to keep time with them (from a stereo system), a lean and curly-haired, bare footed waiter is zigzagging his way towards our candlelit beachside table. One can tell he is a little tipsy. And not just from the way his Bermudas […]






Ladakh: The Land Of Many Passes

Ladakh: The Land Of Many Passes

Starting a travelogue on Ladakh or La Dags – the land of many passes – is not easy. Where do you begin? With the fat brown marmot with teeth like Eddie Murphy that you startle basking in the sunshine in the middle of a mud track? With the herd of handsome golden wild asses – kiangs […]






Switzerland!

Switzerland!

Tulfes is the most beautiful village I have ever seen. There are flowers everywhere, fat cats clean their whiskers on wood benches; apricot trees (yes trees) clamber up house walls; goats graze in fenced enclosures, horses neigh under trees, a beautiful church with paintings on stone walls stands sleepily at the corner and there is […]






Drive To Axalp

Drive To Axalp

We hire a nine seater from Hertz at the airport the next day for the staggering figure of Rs 90,000 a week. It was much cheaper when we had checked from India but we didn’t book then and now it’s too late for regrets. The guys flash their newly acquired International driving licenses (Rs 500 […]






Cold And Wet In Vienna

Cold And Wet In Vienna

Jet lagged and tired after 11 hours of flight, we land in Vienna. It is raining. We press our noses against the window of the taxi that is taking us to our hotel, zipping across the wet roads with some classical music playing softly in the background. It has cost us 70 Euros (nearly Rs […]

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!"
