How To Store Healthy

How To Store Healthy

Today we discuss how you go about storing the things you shopped for. Because something as simple as this can ALSO be messed up. Seen your purchase wilting before time? Seen things rotting away despite storing them the what-you-thought-was-the-right-way? Try this then.  ** Storing your haul:  – Do not use polythene bags,  – use re-usable […]






How To Shop Healthy

How To Shop Healthy

  Just a list of quick things you can keep in mind while you spend time shopping for vegetables and spend time dishing up delicacies in your kitchen – you want solid good health packed into those pretty-looking, great-tasting dishes. That’s the trick I think, instead of trying to pass off a sad-tasting thing as healthy. […]






How To Eat Healthy

How To Eat Healthy

How to prepare  for a slightly altered, healthier and greener life? Here is how..  – Never cut your veggies and store them– same thing goes for fruits, and for mincing, shredding, dicing, cubing, mashing etc etc. If you have a cut vegetable, use it within 10-15 minutes. This is especially true for onions and garlic […]






The Truth About Depression

The Truth About Depression

While sitting outside a café or at a beach or simply just walking down the street, I like to watch people. I like the old grumpy uncle in my apartment who never smiles, but dotes on his dogs. I love to see little Emily play with her nanny.  I admire the gorgeous Lebanese lady and her amazing […]






Remembering Madhuri Velegar..

Remembering Madhuri Velegar..

My first job as a sub-editor in The Economic Times in 1994 brought me in touch with many people. Some were just colleagues, some were mentors and a few became life-long friends. It is hard for me to categorise Madhuri Velegar K. She headed Bangalore’s Femina desk and we hardly spoke though we worked for […]






Farooque Shaikh: The Humanist

Farooque Shaikh: The Humanist

We all knew of his talent as an actor, his passion for theatre and the dexterity with which he anchored enjoyable television programs. Many articles discussed these as we bid farewell to Farooque Shaikh. But his contribution to the world’s most successful public health programme is perhaps less well known. The polio eradication campaign in India, had roped in a […]






Detoxing The Kitchen

Detoxing The Kitchen

Recently,  I did a massive kitchen detox and  gave away certain utensils to the utensil shop near my place in exchange for stuff I really wanted. All the non- stick ware had to go. I have heard enough already about how Teflon wears off and how it starts leeching dangerous residue into our foods – […]






Junk Alert

Junk Alert

In the sixties and seventies, alcohol and tobacco were wrecking havoc on the health of the people, and doctors and policy makers alike were just waking up to the fact  that serious health repercussions could result due to these habits/ addictions. It took a long and hard fought battle with the powerful opposing lobby to implement  restrictions […]






Doctor Without Borders

Doctor Without Borders

No matter how self-obsessed you are, you would have heard of Doctors Without Borders. Officially known as Medecins Sans Frontieres, or MSF, they are, like Marvel’s Avengers, superheroes who tread where devils have no fear of going either. They might even make you think of the Steinbeck story immortalised by Henry Fonda in Grapes of […]






Recipe: Cold Busting ‘Kaadha”

Recipe: Cold Busting ‘Kaadha”

I come from a family of chronically bronchitis and sinus affected humans who need no rhyme and reason or even season to catch a cold. For as long as I can remember, this catching cold syndrome has ruined several experiences for me. This includes being told that I should give up the idea of learning […]






The Yummy Mummy Myth

The Yummy Mummy Myth

       Standing in the checkout-line at a supermarket, I saw an ad for a weight-loss clinic go up on screen. It started with ”Ladies, do you HATE looking at yourself in the mirror? Do you want to be a page three yummy-mummy?” in bold letters with a blaring commentary to match. This was […]






No Toilets In Schools!

No Toilets In Schools!

With just three months left for Karnataka to file a compliance report on a law guaranteeing free, compulsory education to children aged six to 14, many schools seem to be flouting the norms fearlessly. Located in Shivajinagar, Kannada- medium Hafzia Higher Elementary school has poor hygiene standards and lacks basic facilities. Apart from this, the […]

* 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!"
