The Tunnel

The Tunnel

I am my own savior. My spirit ran ahead to beam the light of hope as my weary body and mind struggled to catch up. It was this light that kept me alive as the piercing darkness around me spilled into my soul. The tunnel was akin to a birth canal, destroying every lie, facade and […]






Walking Into The Unknown

Walking Into The Unknown

It’s a scary place to be. The vast openness in front of you. Myriad intertwining paths stretching across the horizon as far as the eye can see. Fear immobilizes you. One wrong step and you think all will be lost. How sad it is sweet child that you have forgotten where you have come from. […]






Oh Orlando!

Oh Orlando!

Orlando. I remember you. Sitting right in the heart of Florida, you are a place where dreams come true. Where magic unfolds. Where a confluence of people from around the world come to enjoy dream vacations. Sunshine, sweet oranges, laughter, fun and good times – that’s what you are all about. I remember spending some […]






Valsa Mathew: A Tribute

Valsa Mathew: A Tribute

I did not know Valsa Mathew but sometimes, you do not need to know a person too well to imbibe instantly and with absolute certainty that there is something very special about her. I first saw Valsa nearly a decade or so ago when accompanied by my mother, I went to her son Vivek Mathew’s […]






New

New

Today, I shed a tear, For that child Who shivered, Cold in her shoes, Lanky in her clothes, Terrified in her errors. Today, I shed a tear, For the parents, Who, in their hurry, To protect their child From what the world could Do to her, forgot what they could. Today, I told myself, That […]






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 […]






No Silence Please..

No Silence Please..

“Finger on your lips,” in class  “Silence please,” in the library “shhh…,” says a cute baby in the poster at the doctor’s clinic “Don’t talk when 2 adults are talking,”  “keep quiet..” ** These are both, memories and scars from our childhood. It’s no surprise then that staying silent is the order, instruction, advice we […]






The Truth About Depression

The Truth About Depression

While sitting outside a café or at a beach or simply just walking down the street, I like to watch people. I like the old grumpy uncle in my apartment who never smiles, but dotes on his dogs. I love to see little Emily play with her nanny.  I admire the gorgeous Lebanese lady and her amazing […]






Monsoon In Mumbai-4

Monsoon In Mumbai-4

Why is fear gnawing again On the tender extremities On aching feet that survey Each new beginning? Do these paths lead somewhere Or are they just scratches Self-inflicted, on dreams That had turned to ashes long ago? Drooping branches dangle Flexing damp fingers Glowing in the first light Of a wetly-web-like dawn Birds shelter in […]






The Good Fight

The Good Fight

  The heaviness grows with the weight of a thousand years Weary of fighting the same old wars Eyes unfocused and shoulders drooping We trudge together not in triumph But in struggle Some fall behind But a few march on Will we be greeted by victory? Or crushed by defeat? We do not know yet […]






Her..

Her..

She wakes up to a hopeful morning, having left her dreams behind, yet holding on to them firmly, for her dreams are what gives her the wings to fly by through each long day. She smiles when she feels like crying and she sheds tears when happy. She is strong during the toughest of weathers […]






Courage Under Fire

Courage Under Fire

  Dusk had fallen when short and stocky Lt Col Rajnish Behl, Sena Medal, entered the old stone building with sweeping arches and green ivy climbing up fading brick walls. It used to be a school in British times but was now serving the Army’s need for a Base Hospital. Stepping briskly, he walked down 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!"
