The Black Mirror Around Us

The Black Mirror Around Us

Last night in Bangalore, the cast of the play Nirbhaya got a standing ovation, each one of us standing for our own private reason. I for one stood because I thought it was admirable, how the cast made public perhaps the most painful truths of their lives. The tears were real, this was no acting. […]






TV Soaps: Impossible Is Nothing!

TV Soaps: Impossible Is Nothing!

  I read somewhere, “Nothing should live that isn’t a labour of great, great love.” But seriously, if nothing should live that isn’t a labour of great love, how come the people and things that are, sometimes vanish into the mist of time?  It’s nothing you haven’t contemplated before. There  ought to be some place beyond, a […]






Skip That Review..

Skip That Review..

  Most people need a movie review like they need a nail trim at a salon. It’s an option and sure we love one but we can live without it.  Ofcourse, you’d like an indication of some sort on what to expect of a movie. That’s fair. But don’t we have that well before it’s time for a review […]






Let It Be..

Let It Be..

Music is a popular topic of debate in drawing room conversations, considering how conspicuously present it is at most get-togethers where music trivia begins to come out of your ears, after a while. Often, my heart goes out to the unsuspecting souls who have somehow managed to hold on to their romanticism about their kind of “good music,”  only to innocently offer it to pontificating snobs for demolition on evenings like […]






Amrutlaal

Amrutlaal

Once upon a time, there lived a man who could sew to perfection. These were times when bales of fabric stared down at you from shop shelves, transforming themselves in your mind’s eye into lovely frocks, smart shirts and swirling skirts, till you saw them in just the form you coveted and called for the […]






Kanku..

Kanku..

  Dawn knocked on the door, bedecked in nine yards, vermillion and carrying an aluminium milk can. Kanku was her name. No morning was complete without the swirling of her rotund hips and middle, as she set her can on the ground and herself on her haunches. “A litre?” she would ask with a smile […]






Kaaka..

Kaaka..

On a sultry Gujarat afternoon, the lazy summer heat would waft in, bringing in its warm folds the salted sweetness of his voice. “Paaaaaavvvvbiskeeeeeeeeeeeet!” Always starting low at ‘paa’ and reaching a nice final peak at ‘keet.’ Paav and biscuit is how his vendor call could be broken up as, but for a child those […]






Generosity..

Generosity..

  The world would be a calmer place, we would be calmer people if we just realised that the only things that there are limited reserves of, in this world, are our natural resources. The rest of it all is in abundance because the manufacturers of these “other things” are us. Humans. While we have […]






Searching For Mubarak Begum

Searching For Mubarak Begum

  Yes Mubarak Begum is around. And no, she isn’t doing well. I know no one asked but it’s one of those moments in life when a question need not precede the answer. A few years ago, a dusty drive to Behram Baug in Jogeshwari took a colleague and  me to the one room tenement […]

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!"
