If You Love Me…

We do not fear dying; we fear being forgotten.

That’s why we have death anniversaries, barsis and shraadhs .

That’s why we have graveyards longing for someone to stop by.

That’s why we have urns on ledges and frames gracing our walls.

But I don’t want to be those bones lying in wait.

 I want you to show me how much you love me, today.

I want to know who cares enough to make time for me, today.

I don’t want flowers on my grave or next to my photo frame;

I want to pluck those roses with you, today.

Celebrate a victory with you, today.

Feed the birds with you, today…

For tomorrow is tomorrow…

And yesterday, just a cry of empty moments that passed us by.

* 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!"
