Indian Education System – The Real Blue Whale Challenge!

Indian Education System – The Real Blue Whale Challenge!

It is heart breaking for a teacher to see adolescents killing themselves over an online virtual game which challenges them to do self-harming tasks in real life. It is equally heart breaking to read about the exam, admission, IIT studies, NEET etc related suicides. What are we doing to our youngsters? Are we driving them […]






Raising Motivated Children Is The New Challenge

Raising Motivated Children Is The New Challenge

A 13-year old school girl from Bangalore went missing recently and was found in Hubli.  I do not know the family personally, but the incident had me thinking really hard because I too am a mother.  I feel, today all stake holders in the education system are facing a serious challenge. Parents, teachers and the society have […]






No Quick Fixes Possible

No Quick Fixes Possible

  No this is not yet another ode to Maggi noodles, so you can stop groaning. Maggi was on my black list for a while now after I heard about the wax coating on the noodles and that it is difficult to digest. Anyhow over the past several years I have been slowly weaning my family off […]






Daddy’s Little Girl?

Daddy’s Little Girl?

“My Dad always wore the pants in the family,” shared Avika, my buddy. She is married and expects her husband to do the same. She avoids confrontations and standing up for herself. She is a people pleaser. She is even willing to give up her high-paying job and her identity to get the affirmation from her man. When I […]






How To Tell Your Child About CSA

How To Tell Your Child About CSA

Entrepreneur and mother Deepa Kumar has issues with the blanket terminology that surrounds the issue of Child Sexual Abuse (CSA). “To start with, I don’t quite agree with the distinction between a ‘good touch’ and a  ‘bad touch.’ If  there is a touch that a child needs to distinguish as good or bad, we are already in dangerous […]






Parents Know Best

Parents Know Best

It was a dark and stormy night. Expectedly, there had been a power failure in the neighbourhood. A few houses were quiet while raucous singing erupted from others as each little family dealt with the situation in their individual ways. Transistors belted songs from old Hindi films and the sounds and smells of cooking became […]






Unfair

Unfair

Red, green, purple!  Every time Keerat  pulled off one romper and put on the other, her eight month old wiggled and chuckled, chubby hands grabbing at the young mother’s arms as she fretted over the colour that best lightened her dusky baby’s skin tone. ** “She looks dark in each of these,” Keerat wiped her brow, […]






No Silence Please..

No Silence Please..

“Finger on your lips,” in class  “Silence please,” in the library “shhh…,” says a cute baby in the poster at the doctor’s clinic “Don’t talk when 2 adults are talking,”  “keep quiet..” ** These are both, memories and scars from our childhood. It’s no surprise then that staying silent is the order, instruction, advice we […]






The Secret I Won’t Keep..

The Secret I Won’t Keep..

Many a time, I scroll my Facebook wall, see my posts and tell myself, “Oh! My life is an open-book!” From posting myriad of status messages about trivial things to blogging about some earth-shattering topics, I’ve been constantly striving to record my life. Despite being self-expressive, I realised that I haven’t let a word out […]






Parenting Diaries

Parenting Diaries

Cars…. I mean, toy cars. So many of them, in many a colours, in many sizes, strewn all over the house, in each and every room. Some under a bed or a cabinet, some enjoying the weather in the balcony, some in the washroom awaiting a bath, and very few in their rightful designated place, i.e. […]






Her Five Year Old Self

Her Five Year Old Self

Once there was a little girl who was perfect in every way. Beautiful, smart, loving and kind. Her parents loved her until their next child arrived and then the next and the next. Before she knew it she had to grow up and take care of herself all at the age of five. And when […]






Home By Seven

Home By Seven

            I always wondered what would be like to be a boy and to be in a world, where the freedom and choices seemed to be limitless. Where the deadline-free timings left one free to do whatever one wished at all kinds of crazy hours. Where the clothes one wore or […]

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!"
