Those Who ‘Defend’ History Know Nothing About It

Those Who ‘Defend’ History Know Nothing About It

Those who filmed themselves proudly as they broke cameras, vandalised property and beat up Sanjay Leela Bhansali on the sets of Padmavati know nothing about the culture they claim to be protecting. So let us begin with a slice of history. With the story of a man who was a devout Muslim and a bhakt […]






They Dehumanise Women Because They Can

They Dehumanise Women Because They Can

Sometime last year I went for a late night show with my 18-year-old and forgot one cardinal rule I have always followed while going out after dusk though it is a rare occurrence. Dress down. Wear a big shawl that hides the fact that though 47, I am a woman still. No flashy neck or […]






South Park Street Cemetery: A Photo Feature

South Park Street Cemetery: A Photo Feature

There are cities where you let yourself be pampered. There are cities where you cannot help but complain about the chaos. And then there are cities where even though you complain, you still revel in its charm. Its character. Kolkata – truly a city of the lords, that now seems at least two decades behind […]






Where The Goddess Comes To Life

Where The Goddess Comes To Life

As a wanderer, I have been to places that have made me squeal in happiness, and others that have silenced me in awe. Places that render me motionless. But at times, I have chanced upon places that have made me experience all of that at once. Kumartuli, Kolkata. Where forms are fashioned out of clay. […]






Reinventing Culture

Reinventing Culture

Even if the rapist had broken through the door and raped someone in the house, the woman victim would have been at fault. At least partially, because “taali ek hath se nahi bajti…” If the rape victim was an infant perhaps the reason would be her parent’s non- belief in god or perhaps her stars […]






The Insider

The Insider

Whenever photographer Clare Arni steps on Bangalore’s MG Road, young vendors of cliches flock around her,  mistaking her for a foreigner. The moment she starts chatting them up in mellifluous Kannada, they realise their mistake. Only an Indian can speak an Indian language with a complete understanding of local particularities and without a trace of […]






Shankaraa: From The Heart

Shankaraa: From The Heart

In 1995, I met Bangalore-based danseuse Rashme Hedge Gopi on a routine assignment that turned out be not so routine after all. She was a leading  exponent of Bharatnatyam and for years had travelled to France, Germany, UK, Africa and USA, the erstwhile USSR , performing and representing India at prestigious international festivals. And then […]






Be A Leader

Be A Leader

  Statistics prove that India’s potential to emerge as an economic and a socially responsible power in the next three decades rests on the Indian youth. That 47 per cent of Indians are under the age of 20 and 10 per cent of the world population is an Indian under 25 is a common assessment of India […]






Missed Flight-1

Missed Flight-1

Writer Rani Rao Innes pens an insightful three-part story about the need for freedom and the desire for roots, exclusively for the readers of Unboxed Writers.  She could not believe she had missed her flight at such a time in her life. Her wedding was in a week. Most of her extended family had already reached Bangalore. […]

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!"
