It Happened One Afternoon

It Happened One Afternoon

It was a sunny winter afternoon, and as cold as it gets in West Bengal. We, a group of journalists, were on a press trip to Mahishadal in West Bengal’s Midnapore district.

A Nation Of Shoplifters?

A Nation Of Shoplifters?

Indian retailers suffered the highest loss of stocks to theft in the world for the fifth year in a row in 2011. Half of this loss was attributed to shoplifting by customers. The silver lining here was that India is the world’s only country where the shrink rate (loss of stocks because of thefts by […]

At Face Value?

At Face Value?

When Facebook introduced its “like” button, the idea was liked across the social networking site. The lazy ones liked it because instead of having to undertake the arduous task of having to type “hot” or “awesome” or even “nice” in the comments box, they could just click on the button and carry on with their […]






Soumitra Chatterjee: Mellow Noon

Soumitra Chatterjee: Mellow Noon

As he, almost silently, glided into the living room, it was as if the curtains had lifted and the show had begun. Cinemar manush (the man from the films) was how I would refer to him  whenever I saw a picture of his anywhere, as a five-year-old. The man I had loved and loathed in […]






‘Yes,I am Salim Durrani..’

‘Yes,I am Salim Durrani..’

It was a dank wintry evening of November 1993 and we had had our fill of Bengali sweets. My girlfriend and I were stepping out of a confectioner’s in Gol Park, Calcutta when I noticed a lanky, slightly slouching, man on the pavement fishing out a cigarette from one of his overloaded trouser pockets. He […]

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!"
