The National Sports We Already Excel In

The National Sports We Already Excel In

The Honourable Sports Minister of India, upon his return from the recently held Olympic Games 2016, has taken stock of the remarkable infrastructure, facilities, opportunities, fund allocation (for players and not personal betterment of those involved in the chain of funds disbursement) and collective Government and bureaucratic apathy towards Indians who may have even the […]






AB de Villiers Pens His Story

AB de Villiers Pens His Story

‘AB de Villiers is the finest batsman of his generation:’ Virat Kohli ‘AB has become the most valuable cricketer on the planet:’ Adam Gilchrist The statistics tell barely half the story but, so far, AB de Villiers has scored over 14,000 runs in 98 tests for South Africa, more than 8,000 runs in 190 one-day […]






So Hard To Give A Girl Her Due

So Hard To Give A Girl Her Due

Yes, it is just so hard. To not appropriate her success. So recently there was a Facebook post by Loyola students about how PV Sindhu’s father’s education at Loyola had something to do with her recent triumph. Another FB page dug out a picture of Sindhu in traditional regalia to show the ”feminists” that she could […]






Born To Win

Born To Win

He stared down at the chess board for a few seconds before moving a pawn forward. In that short time span, Bharath’s brain racked through games played previously, moves and choices seen online. He sifted through patterns and strategies learnt from numerous websites and his chess classes. A rising star in the field of chess, Bharath has done […]






Being Sania Mirza

Being Sania Mirza

    Serena Williams knows better than anyone else that even being a world-class player cannot insulate a woman from mindless and vicious criticism about her body, her race, her irritating disregard for how female tennis players should look and conduct themselves. Perhaps someone like  Sania Mirza can empathise because she too has been judged […]






Phil Hughes: Gone Too Soon

Phil Hughes: Gone Too Soon

The unfortunate death of Phillip Hughes, who was hit by a bouncer while playing a domestic match, has understandably brought an outpouring of emotion and grief. Players across the world, cricket administrators, media, fans and the sporting fraternity have condoled the sad demise of the young player. He was in all likelihood, poised to replace […]






Not Worth Losing A Life Over

Not Worth Losing A Life Over

Losing a wicket is a far far better thing to strive for. No batsman would say that under normal circumstances, but given Phil Hughes’ death, he would certainly say that. **The sight of a fast bowler tearing into a batsman has been one of cricket’s most romanticized images, especially in the pre-helmet era. It was […]






Why We Fail..

Why We Fail..

  Most Indian parents follow a religion of making available to their kids all they missed out on. Some go a step further; wanting to give their kids all that they did not have plus what they think the next generation should have. A sport was on one such wish list for our girls. We […]






Mary Kometh

Mary Kometh

    From a helpless young girl being pawed by a pack of hounds in Guwahati, the media focus has shifted now to a sinewy Manipuri woman punching her way to international attention. Some shift.  I wonder how the powerful women competing in the Olympics come across to the moral sainiks. Women swimmers, gymnasts, weight lifters, […]






‘Yes,I am Salim Durrani..’

‘Yes,I am Salim Durrani..’

It was a dank wintry evening of November 1993 and we had had our fill of Bengali sweets. My girlfriend and I were stepping out of a confectioner’s in Gol Park, Calcutta when I noticed a lanky, slightly slouching, man on the pavement fishing out a cigarette from one of his overloaded trouser pockets. He […]






An Affair To Remember

An Affair To Remember

Far before the debate warmed up about pregnant heroines signing films at all,  there was Sharmila Tagore, visibly pregnant and carrying Saif Ali Khan Pataudi through the shoot of Asit Sen’s Safar. Decades before film magazines wondered if a married heroine could pull off roles beyond her comfort zone, there was Ms Tagore again, playing […]






Need For Speed

Need For Speed

In the middle of the spectacularly lopsided India-England test series, I was trying to steer a simulated Ashish Nehra on this rather dated computer game. It was tough – the left-armer was running in and from around the wicket, moving it away from the left-handed opener. At a friendly 125 kmph. The batsman (Taufeeq Umar, […]

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!"
