Growing Out Of Love

Growing Out Of Love

  Do not judge me for my repetitive rhymes; For I have suffered enough judgements in  recent times. When the result of expectations is a marred reality; Even the best of bards lose their clarity. Growing out of love  is a phrase overrated; For the action is glorified and the emotion understated. The emotion you […]






In Custody: Stylishly

In Custody: Stylishly

And so we decided to spend the weekend trekking. “You guys are so planned and organized. It is so boring! Why can’t you be spontaneous?” my daughter had cribbed. So, one fine Saturday, I got up and planned to be spontaneous and decreed that the family will engage in a trek over the weekend. We picked the […]






Firing A Blank

Firing A Blank

Editor’s note: Proceed with caution..spoilers ahead! I had the good fortune of investing three hours of my hitherto worthless life in edifying myself when friends propelled me to a show of Gunday. I learnt that the Indian Police is so diabolically clever that they can lay an intricately plotted conspiracy to rival the best of Ludlums and John […]






It’s Raining VIPs

It’s Raining VIPs

I was watching Rajdeep Sardesai getting into a blather on the VIP culture on CNN-IBN the other day. It appears that a Member of Parliament missed his connecting flight from Mumbai to Indore as his flight from Goa had been delayed. The Honourable MP had to spend the night in Mumbai. The DGCA has now asked the private […]






Gender Benders

Gender Benders

The other day I was watching the rerun of a popular comedy show on TV with my wife. I found that out of the six main characters in the show- a man and his wife, a grandmother and an aunt with two women from the neighbourhood- as many as three female characters were being played by men. In […]






Three Men And A Walk

Three Men And A Walk

On a scenic hill top in Munnar, we noticed a small coffee stall and decided to stop for a break. The stall was run by a young, chatty guy who showed us his village located at the foot of the hill… not very far. We could see a church and a few quaint houses down […]






Word Play

Word Play

 The other day my wife, newspaper in hand, interrupted my happy commune with my cup of tea and asked, “what is this ‘recuse’ business? Why is this chap recusing himself from editorial duties?”  Glad to get in a word sideways in the house first thing in the morning, I pontificated as to how judges who perceived a […]






The Saffron Solution!

The Saffron Solution!

The Indian Railways have introduced a mandatory training program for their staff. It is imperative that every single official in the Indian Railways, right from the signalman to the station masters to the Mechanical Engineers not just undergo this training, it is absolutely vital that they pass this program with flying colours. Their jobs are […]






20 Years Of The Company Theatre: The Memories

20 Years Of The Company Theatre: The Memories

The Company Theatre  was formed by Sheeba Chadha, Atul Kumar, Manish Chawdhary and Sanjeev Sharma in 1993 in New Delhi. This year it celebrates  two decades of creativity, laughter, tears, toil, struggle and triumph.  In a country addicted to cinema and cricket, for a theatre group to have come so far and created a new mindscape […]






Switzerland!

Switzerland!

Tulfes is the most beautiful village I have ever seen. There are flowers everywhere, fat cats clean their whiskers on wood benches; apricot trees (yes trees) clamber up house walls; goats graze in fenced enclosures, horses neigh under trees, a beautiful church with paintings on stone walls stands sleepily at the corner and there is […]






Drive To Axalp

Drive To Axalp

We hire a nine seater from Hertz at the airport the next day for the staggering figure of Rs 90,000 a week. It was much cheaper when we had checked from India but we didn’t book then and now it’s too late for regrets. The guys flash their newly acquired International driving licenses (Rs 500 […]






Cold And Wet In Vienna

Cold And Wet In Vienna

Jet lagged and tired after 11 hours of flight, we land in Vienna. It is raining. We press our noses against the window of the taxi that is taking us to our hotel, zipping across the wet roads with some classical music playing softly in the background. It has cost us 70 Euros (nearly Rs […]

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!"
