Mussoorie And Landour: The Literary Connection

Mussoorie And Landour: The Literary Connection

The twin towns of Mussoorie and Landour are famed for their scenic beauty and the rare winter line phenomenon. However, not many people know that they have a rich literary heritage and highest density of authors anywhere in the world. While Landour is home to many writers, the most well-known being Ruskin Bond, who shifted […]






Because Only Women Need To be “Responsible”!

Because Only Women Need To be “Responsible”!

“Live Responsibly or Anticipate Death and Destruction” reads the title of an article on the death of model Sonika Chauhan. “We want ‘equal rights’ – we want to be able to go out late at night as men do, bar-hop, drink and relax, have several rounds of drinks. It’s our ‘right’. We too need to […]






Bombay: A Defiant Love Story

Bombay: A Defiant Love Story

“Job Offer” read the subject of an email I had been waiting to receive for over two months. I finally had a job in Bombay- a city I’d wanted to move to for two years. I was ecstatic, and then of course, terrified. You see, I have a special knack for always finding the bad […]






Journalism Of Empathy

Journalism Of Empathy

Penguin presents Reporting Pakistan by Meena Menon. While there are many similarities between India and Pakistan, comparisons, though inescapable, are odious . . . As sinister plots, spy games and terrorism continue, cloaked by attempts at bonhomie, the stories here centre on life, about ordinary Pakistanis and are not always about firing on the LoC or the Taliban, […]






Shanthi Sekaran’s New Book Is Here

Shanthi Sekaran’s New Book Is Here

Penguin Random House has announced the release of their new International title- Lucky Boy by Shanthi Sekaran, author of an award winning novel The Prayer Room. Her work has also appeared in the Best New American Voices etc. A heart-wrenching novel that gives voice to two mothers: a young undocumented Mexican woman and an Indian-American […]






Book review- The Shock Doctrine

Book review- The Shock Doctrine

Certain books outlive their prime years not only due to their authors’ brilliance (which in this case was never in doubt), but also due to the core issues they analyze and address. The Shock Doctrine, currently in its 10th year of publication since its release in September 2007, falls in that category. Although yet to […]






An Enduring Epic

An Enduring Epic

Penguin presents The Glory of Patan by K.M. Munshi, translated by Rita and Abhijit Kothari. The kingdom of Patan faces an ominous future. King Karnadev lies on his deathbed. His son, Jaydev, is too young to ascend the throne. Rumours abound of scheming warlords intent on establishing their own independence and powerful merchants plotting to wrest control from […]






Disconnecting From The Matrix

Disconnecting From The Matrix

Years ago I watched the The Matrix and it seemed like a fantasy with no element of truth in it. But when I watched it when I was older, it seemed not too far fetched from the reality we wake up to every day. The daily grind. Put your nose to the grindstone and chug away. Work […]






Lakhamandal: The Lost City

Lakhamandal: The Lost City

About 20 kms off the pristine hill station of Chakrata in Uttarakhand, from the other side diagonally opposite to the entry from Kalsi, we hit the dirt road that would take us to the very historic city of Lakhamandal, situated on the banks of river Yamuna. The road, moderate in size, neither too tiny nor […]






When Love Hums Like A Million Flowers

When Love Hums Like A Million Flowers

She plants lavender bushes on arid earth and keeps the soil moist, welcoming and fertile for thirsty seedlings. She is like the trees sheltering. And like the gardener nurturing. She knows the words the silences. Her hands build heal becalm soothe revive and remain invisible because she likes fading into serene margins. To never claim […]






A Lesson In Slow Travelling

A Lesson In Slow Travelling

S l o w… They are in no hurry. They stand and stare at me when I photograph a cloud. They slow down their two-wheelers to look at me, because in their town, girls do not sport short haircuts; their plaits touch their hips. My friend Muthu, who is a proud localite, tells me that […]






That Which Is Left…

That Which Is Left…

I see this Laughing Buddha every weekend when I go cycling. Do you see the crow, perched on the board he is holding? Do you see how small it looks? This Laughing Buddha is gigantic. He is at VGP Golden Beach, Chennai’s first theme park. That part, where the Laughing Buddha was installed, of the […]

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!"
