Infinity…

Infinity…

But you can always look up At your corner of sky Through glass Between grills Framed by concrete And touch infinity This kept me alive In back rooms And corner offices A single stream of sunshine A streak of rain trailing down a pane The smallest whisper Of eternity You can even see stars Gathered […]






Imagine…

Imagine…

If you cannot see the knife At least imagine it Carry the idea in your mind The possibility of an edge Murderously honed Wielded in attack Feel the steel tear you Consider the possibility Of a stab wound Look around you Watch for edges, for hands Concealed in pockets, behind Backs Listen Most of all, […]






Compliant…

Compliant…

A national distraction A national auction Your money for your patriotism Your hand on your heart Feet on clouds of fervour Head completely emptied Cocooned by propaganda Cushioned by heart’s-talk Robbed of all volition A slave to wild hope And daydreams of destiny Craven, coward, compliant Complicit in a conspiracy Masquerading as a country Pic: […]






Speak Now..

Speak Now..

Here and now. Today. Capture it. Speak out .Talk. Happy.Angry.Fraught. Sort it out. Say it now. It’ll get lost. Diluted. Reach out. Touch.Smile.Laugh. Take a chance. Trust what you want. Seek it. Hold on to it. The moment you postpone could be a lost chance. Rachna Tiwari is a hospitality professional, residing in Gurgaon and […]






Black Days…

Black Days…

My baby She woke up crying For the fifth time, tonight I gathered her in my lap and put the bottle into her mouth At 18 months, she does not understand black money, demonetization or national interest. *** Meanwhile, three men died in the queue, waiting for their daily share Of 2000 rupees, which would pay […]






The Forgotten Seed

The Forgotten Seed

The abandoned seed, Martyr of its creed, helps  others to grow. The first random rain-drops Falling from the dark clouds On the scorching earth below Vanish into thin vapours, And yet…!   Wakes up The languorous land, To take in The torrential rains With open arms. For each great shift Seeks sacrifices Of some pious souls, […]






Moonlit

Moonlit

And we crawl under The blanket of moonlit stars Silence our white noise Reading the books of our thoughts Satisfied; switch off our eyes ** Prateek Maheshwari (phatwiremarakeesh.wordpress.com) is based out of Mumbai, works full-time (overtime!) in finance and is an engineer by education. Writing is his passion.






Thaw

Thaw

I liked the feelings you evoked In a heart kept cold Lest it warmed up enough To be sliced in two. But the warmth was worth it The thawing was bliss The magic of love flowed To a place where it was sorely missed And the feelings you let me Gather up in my treasure […]






Same New

Same New

Welcome to this week’s atrocity Warhol guess what in the 21st century we are all devastated for 15 minutes ballard this exhibition defies your wildest imagining lone wolves and monolithic states at war and the battlefield the bodies of all the rest of us welcome to new atrocity same as the old atrocity Pic courtesy: […]






Litany

Litany

Duckback raincoat Bata shoes Camel ink Hero pen Nataraj pencils I’ve reached a point Where lists of things Once familiar Comfort me But I don’t believe things are worse The world Was always burning The skies Were always red And the end Was always near Near enough to smell The burning Of time But with […]






I Think Time Stopped…

I Think Time Stopped…

Here I am, just floating, not knowing, where to go anymore. Is that bad? I’m just sitting here contemplating the clouds the wind rustling the leaves the sun embracing all things I’m here and not here at the same time I hold only this instant not knowing what comes next and I don’t care. The […]






A Virtual Prayer!

A Virtual Prayer!

Oh Internet, Grant me your presence today. Grant me some of your bandwidth To watch this video play. Grant me the decency To answer my mail. Grant me the honour Of your efficiency Like you grant it to those living In the big city down there. Grant me these 2 mb I daren’t ask for […]

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!"
