Saving A Mighty Heart

Saving A Mighty Heart

 ** And this is how seemingly impossible stories are born. An American book about children in India, on a tour across the country results in a  chance meeting between two disparate worlds in a small village and what emerged from it is..this. ** “I met  little Deepa one evening at the village along with other […]






The Race..

The Race..

  Editor’s Note: This is a writing assignment given (along with the above picture ) to a eight-year old by a parent.  He was asked to do a research report on dog sledding and add personal narrative as part of creative writing practice.  We post the story, the young child came up with.. My heart […]






Mary Morgan On Dr Spock, Life And Love…

Mary Morgan On Dr Spock, Life And Love…

  And this is why I believe that certain meetings, connections are fated. There was really no reason for me to meet Mary Morgan. And yet, it was preordained that I meet  her at a time when am becoming a bit disillusioned with the idea of investing in hope, resilience, love, friendship. I did not know […]






The Networked..

The Networked..

 *** They are everywhere. These new zombie-like creatures, BlackBerrys in hand, earphones in their ears, eyes on the screen and head in the clouds. We have now reached a stage where chalkboards and pens are being replaced with touchscreens and styluses; where iPads are replacing notebooks.  Popularity is no longer about how many people know […]






A Short Visit..

A Short Visit..

    Ganapati Bappa came home and spent two days with us at my child’s behest. He was made of Shaalu Maati (potter’s clay). His golden jewellery, ‘mukut’ and ‘dhoti’ were painted with haldi (turmeric). Multani mitti brought out his glowing complexion and choona (chalk) highlighted his garland of flowers. He brought many people home, […]






Potted Glory

Potted Glory

  Someone wise once rightly said that, too much of anything is bad! And that applies to rains as well. The rainy season is very important because it helps replenish water resources that provide us with water for drinking and other purposes. However, heavy rains and accompanying thunderstorms or lightnings can have a negative effect […]






Every Drop Counts..

Every Drop Counts..

The rainy season is here! Like the poet Samuel Taylor says “Water water everywhere, but not a drop to drink!” Have you ever wondered why there are constant concerns about availability of water in the future, despite receiving good rainfall? As we all know, part of the rain-water gets collected in ponds, lakes and rivers, […]






Monochrome Blues

Monochrome Blues

  Dead hearts, still, a-pounding; A silence so resounding, Melodies of discord abound, Where skies, high, below the ground From shoal, depths, begin descent, In summers of our discontent, They dodge, deaf, deflections, A mirror of reflections A simple, sound, complexity, A nimbly- knit perplexity, A sin, sacred, sacrosanct Ingratitude so duly thanked, This light, […]






Pranay’s Mango Tree

Pranay’s Mango Tree

Bright yellow mangoes with their fragrance and juicy sweetness occupied most of little Pranay’s thoughts these days. Now, this was not an out of ordinary occurrence given that Pranay and his family were major mango fanatics. Year after year along with the summer heat a certain mango mania descended upon the Sharma household. *** Mummy […]






The Gift…

The Gift…

I am the child of the seventies. Childhood entertainment consisted of movies and Sunday trips to children’s park. Our eating out was made up of the occasional softie in Civil Lines after the matinee or a rolled newspaper cone of murmura and matar at the park, where our favourite plaything was the concrete elephant you […]






My Daughter, The Role Player

My Daughter, The Role Player

When our daughter first started going to play school, I was beyond excited. My girl was a big girl. I positively loved checking her diary each day to see what they had been up to. When we heard she had to dress like a flower for some role play thing, I went a little mad. […]






Gifting Ideas For Kids

Gifting Ideas For Kids

Following a conversation about the trouble with birthday parties, a wiser friend called and suggested something very simple. It made a lot of sense and hence it finds itself replicated here. Birthday invites tend to come in at the eleventh hour… then begins the rush for finding a suitable gift and packing it. There is always […]

* 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!"
