The National Gallery of Modern Art (NGMA), housed in the stately Manikyavelu Mansion on Palace Road distils the restful stillness of another time when unstructured life was not a luxury.

Charles Correa: The Wagner Of Architecture

Charles Correa: The Wagner Of Architecture

It’s architect, planner, activist and theoretician Charles Correa himself on the stage of the JN Tata Auditorium in Bengaluru and what he once said about Corbusier’s architecture in Chandigarh, comes to mind, “Corbusier has sought to create an architecture of passion. No sotto-voce, no politeness but like Wagner-thunder in the concert hall.”  * Correa’s voice is weak and broken but […]






Rang Rasiya: When Art Is Misunderstood

Rang Rasiya: When Art Is Misunderstood

  Along with the records of M S Subbalakshmi,almost  every family had them. Saraswati Devi and her peacock, Mahalakshmi on her lotus, Shiva-unusually moustached – with Parvati, holding their children on laps, Sita and Rama at their coronation, with loyal brothers behind, and an adoring Hanuman at their feet. Growing up in a Tamil household, one was surrounded […]

Beyond the obvious connotations of the politics of revolution, the name Lenin In Irish means, ‘lover.’ And the young man surrounded by many bamboo installations at the Shanthiroad Studio Gallery, calls himself Lenin for a very good reason.

Then unfurled the urge to  create a life that would not require her […]






TM Azis : Simply Profound

TM Azis : Simply Profound

The complexity in artist T M Azis’ work comes from simplicity. But look closely and you will find layers of stories, jig-saw patterns that talk about the human condition, confusion, repetitive and self-defeating choices, unspoken angst. And yet an unmistakable air of innocence lingers. Almost as if Azis was saying, “We are all just overgrown […]






Highlights And Deep Shadows

Highlights And Deep Shadows

 Sometime last month, artist Milind Nayak was admitted in a hospital for blood infection and dangerously high creatinine levels. “I almost reached the pearly gates but the doctors pulled me back,” he says.

CF John: Storm And Stillness

CF John: Storm And Stillness

Artist C F John has always been reticent with words. His works are also imbued with a special kind of wordless resonance. They communicate but not in a common language. They reach out to the wordless space within us all. That space of calm, cohesion and harmony when we simplify and declutter our thoughts. In […]

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!"
