Contentment

Radhika was spoilt for choice when it came to clothes, accessories and almost everything else she wanted. She was the pampered wife of a millionaire who went on endless business trips around the globe in search of better deals and more money. They owned a lot wealth and led a lavish life; an outsider could […]






Inside Out

Inside Out

Sheila craned her neck through the bars of the window. She first looked to her left until she could see the engine 12 wagons away as the train snaked a corner. Then she turned right quickly to catch the guard’s room at the very end 14 bogies down. She just couldn’t wait to get off at the […]






The Open Door

The Open Door

  The jingling of keys and the hesitant creaking of the iron gates herald the arrival of the freedom that I have been longing for all these years.The reasons that drove me into committing that ancient crime seems smudged from memory but the moments of solitude and contemplation I spent within the prison walls remain […]






The Settler

The Settler

And now here she was, sitting in her balcony, wrapped in a Pashmina shawl, sipping her Earl Grey tea. She lived in Darjeeling these days, but her loyalties lay with her English favourite. Sally had lived in London for a few years to acquire a degree in Fashion Designing. The British influence was difficult to shake off. She got […]






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 […]






That Story Again..

That Story Again..

I watch her as she adjusts the cushions on her bed, wraps the blanket around her little body, hugs her teddy tight and looks at me eagerly and asks ‘Won’t you come to bed with me Mamma’. I lie next to her in bed, my face resting on the side of her shoulder, her tiny […]






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, […]






Just Another Dream

Just Another Dream

There was something amiss.  He could not put his finger on it but a part of his brain knew there was something definitely wrong.  “I can’t tax my brains right now” he muttered to himself.  “Getting up so early in the morning during such harsh winters is bad enough” he grumbled.  His hand felt something […]






There..

There..

“There’s no disguising it. I don’t like it. You know what I’m like. I don’t like their attitude. I don’t need to be positive. I’ve never been positive. I wish they would leave me alone.” ** Moira stared deep into the black of the room. She imagined she saw Jay’s silhouette, darker still, than the […]






The Precipice

The Precipice

“Just one step, just one step” echoed the voices inside his head.  He could taste the fear at the back of his throat, his head buzzed.  “There is no way out,” said the same voices, inside his head.  “Just one more step and you shall know peace like you never have before,” said the same voices, sounding […]






Honeymoon, Roses And Hell

Honeymoon, Roses And Hell

  It had been good but things had changed between them.  What had started out as a fling had become something much more to Susan.  “Women,” he muttered under his breath, shaking his head incredulously.  She had been absolutely still, motionless when he had told her that they could not continue seeing each other.  Then came the tears.  “I put on […]






The Basement

The Basement

His hands were red.  The metallic, coppery smell still hung in the air.  It was messy but he still had a lot of time left, with her.  He grinned to himself as he headed towards the kitchen and helped himself to a cold beer.  A slow, wicked grin spread across his face as he imagined […]

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!"
