A Masterclass In Life

A Masterclass In Life

He is a conjurer of narratives. The story teller who brings to life the rising of spring sap in a winter-struck tree and then creates the moment when the silence of months gushes out as maple syrup. ** He paints with his gestures the journey in a canoe of a man and a woman as […]






Love At First Bite

Love At First Bite

Every successful brand has a bite. A bar of Magnum literally lives up to that premise. You bite, it crackles..obliging you with a molten rush of Belgian chocolate. Simple idea. Vanilla purity. And the sinfulness of chocolate. And a business, that according to report published in 2013 has doubled  by a billion Euros in the […]






Chef Vikramjit Roy: The Zen Master

Chef Vikramjit Roy: The Zen Master

Some chefs cook. Others create. Drawing inspiration from influences that may or may not have anything to do with food. And when they finish a plate, it is like finishing a poem or a story or a journey through the world of senses, memory, desire for something beyond immediate gratification and one dimensional pleasure. A […]






Green Luxury

Green Luxury

In the Kamal Haasan starrer Pushpaka Vimana (1987), the story unfolded in the suites, balconies and gardens of a five star hotel. The idea was to pit a few ordinary mundane lives against excessive luxury. The idea of luxury then was limited to carpetted rooms, fluffy beds, marble floors and blinding chandeliers. Over the years however the idea of […]






Japan On A Plate..

Japan On A Plate..

What is the meaning of life? Why are we here? Is there a God? I wouldn’t know. I live for the here and now, by which I don’t mean I plan for the weekend, but that I can only rely on this moment right here. So when I found myself at Edo, (meaning estuary, also […]






Crushed Grapes and The Scent Of a Song

Crushed Grapes and The Scent Of a Song

A dear friend recently went to Switzerland and took a chiffon saree with her just in case a Yash Chopra moment struck her. And she is not even a Hindi film aficionado like me. Just goes to show, doesn’t it? How in a moment when memory meets reality, a snatch from a loved film comes […]






Memories Of The Harvest Moon

Memories Of The Harvest Moon

  The first Chinese restaurant in Bangalore to open in a five star hotel.

Pizza Express: The New Lunch Menu

Pizza Express: The New Lunch Menu

If you know me, you know I am a huge Pizza Express fan. I love their pizzas, those airy, puffy, light, soft like a wad of cotton dough balls with a pat of herb butter to go and God help you if you ever promise to treat me to desserts from their menu because even […]






Karavalli: A Gentle Legend

Karavalli: A Gentle Legend

On a star-lit evening, Chef Naren Thimmaya, as iconic as Karavalli, the show-piece restaurant of Bangalore’s Gateway Hotel,  watches a guest take  pictures of  the ambience. He smiles without knowing he is smiling.  He is now an intrinsic part of the  restaurant that has been widely celebrated for its culinary legacy of over two decades […]






A Lakeside Jewel

A Lakeside Jewel

On the day of the launch of The Gateway Hotel Lakeside Hubli,  the majestic Unkal lake in the distance is an endless silver sprawl. Hotel rooms do not usually open to views such as this. Nor do many hotels have nine acres of greens wrapped around them.  No wonder then that an early riser is jogging around the […]






Azure at Taj, Vivanta: A Culinary Adventure

Azure at Taj, Vivanta: A Culinary Adventure

  In the hospitality business,  Taj is one of those rare brands that represent all three dimensions of time. Past, present and future. Nostalgia, modernity and foresight. At Vivanta by Taj, Yeshwantpur on the outskirts of Bangalore, you see the perfect blend of the three. A courtyard tree reminiscent of Taj West End’s famous tamarind […]

* 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!"
