Looking For Little Miracles

Looking For Little Miracles

There are many ways to find a spiritual connect with life. You can find it in a concert, in a cinema hall, at a bus stop, at an animal shelter, in a book, in rain falling down on parched earth, in your mother’s cooking, in a phrase painted behind an auto, in a dream, in […]






Begum Akhtar: 100 Magical Years

Begum Akhtar: 100 Magical Years

Wo aa rahen hai jo biimaar kii dawaa ke liye Khamosh baithe hain sab chaaraagar duaa ke liye  (he is expected to arrive with a cure for my pain..and the healers quietly wait too, with their hands raised in prayer) These lines are from a ghazal Begum Akhtar wrote though few know just what became […]






Bombay Jayashri:’Someone Up There Is Writing My Story’

Bombay Jayashri:’Someone Up There Is Writing My Story’

It is hard to encapsulate the velvet texture of her voice. Not cloyingly sweet but with depth, character and texture. A voice that unmistakably  belongs to Bombay Jayashri. The singer and composer was in town to perform at the Bengaluru Ganesha Utsava and chatted minutes before her recital. The first thing to ask her is ofcourse just […]






Rashmi Ramachandra: How To Rule The Air

Rashmi Ramachandra: How To Rule The Air

For most people, radio is about air waves throbbing with music and banter but only a radio professional knows the diligence that goes into packaging seamless content. ** We asked RJ Rashmi Ramachandra  just what she did as a programming coordinator at Timbre Media and she responds,”I was responsible for the functioning of Radio Falak […]






The Poet Of Ephemeral Forever

The Poet Of Ephemeral Forever

“Sirf ehsas hai rooh se mehsoos karo…pyaar ko pyaar hi rehne do koi naam na do.” (It is just a feeling..let the soul revel in it..let love be.. just love..try not to name it) So that in a nutshell is Gulzar for you. A man who does not name the obvious but will articulate what cannot be […]






Kishore Kumar: The Man Of Ironies

Kishore Kumar: The Man Of Ironies

A few days after Kishore Kumar’s birth anniversary, the ring tone of his son and singer Amit Kumar echoes a song befitting the occasion, Ye mahfil yun hi sajegi.. ye duniyan yun hi chalegi… jo dhadkan kisi ki ruke tum ruko naa..(The celebrations will continue, the world will go on…if a heartbeat stops somewhere..don’t stop […]






Jonzie Kurian: The Natural

Jonzie Kurian: The Natural

Jonzie Kurian was effortlessly natural on air. His humour and sense of music never ever faltered because he understood the medium, grew playfully risque but never crossed the line and never faked an attitude or an accent. It all began when he won a wacky verse contest. The ‘grand prize’ was the chance to sit in […]






Paging Sister Stella

Paging Sister Stella

Priya Ganapathy, former RJ, also the unforgettable lilt of Lingo Leela and Sister Stella remembers a night in the studios when her playlist was so exciting  that she decided to not pack up.  She grins, “I loved the playlist so much that I broke the rules and did an eight-hour talk marathon chatting up insomniacs and […]






Mohd Vakil: When The Soul Sings

Mohd Vakil: When The Soul Sings

The world of music has always been divided between populists and spiritualists. So though there is a Yo Yo Honey Singh,  thankfully, we also have a Mohammed Vakil. Vakil, who won reality show Sa Re Ga Ma (Mega Final) in 1998, is now an established ghazal and sufi singer, the scion of the Jaipur gharana […]






The Thing About Radio…

The Thing About Radio…

In 2003, Mike Tollin directed a film about a real life character called James Effinhimer Robert ‘Radio’ Kennedy — a nickname he acquired because he was fascinated with radios and would carry one everywhere. The film was called, yes, Radio. How powerful and dangerous radio can be as a medium was captured in Talk Radio, […]






The Shock Jock We Won’t Have

The Shock Jock We Won’t Have

It is easy to grit your teeth at the irony of FM radio commercials. One entreats you like Gandhi, to become the change you want to see in the world because when a small change occurs, it could lead to a big one. Like living in a gated community named after an American valley, or […]






Ameen Sayani: The Voice Of Forever

Ameen Sayani: The Voice Of Forever

Nostalgia has a name. It is Ameen Saayani. For those of us who cut our teeth on Hindi film music via Binaca Geeta Mala (later rechristened as Cibaca Geet Mala) in the 70s, Saayani was the voice that brought it all together. The music of Naushad, Shankar-Jaikishan and SD Burman. The liquid gold of mega […]

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!"
