Me too.

Me too.

Me too. Me too. Me too. No matter how many times I say it, it won’t be anywhere near enough. Strangers on the street, boyfriends, acquaintances at parties, “friendly” uncles, neighbours- the reality that our bodies belong to everyone but ourselves is one that women realize rather early into their lives. The first time I […]






My Own Prison…

My Own Prison…

Fear is a friend. She’s been by my side for as long as I can remember. While most friends tend to drift away or come back into my life sooner or later, she’s never wavered. No matter how safe a country, city, street or home is, she’s taught me to regard all men with suspicion, […]






The Art Of Being ‘Careful’

The Art Of Being ‘Careful’

Monica : Careful. Careful. CAREFUL! Chandler : I’ll tell you what, for the rest of our lives, I’ll be careful until told otherwise. Having just moved into a hostel, I’ve been trying to reconcile what is supposed to be a new found freedom with a set of rules and moral codes that I have never had to think […]






Aruna Shanbaug: Death Without Closure

Aruna Shanbaug: Death Without Closure

Aruna Shanbaug died this week. Officially. She now merits tributes and a formal farewell though cognitive and full-bodied life, as she knew it, ended in 1973. How can anyone make sense of how the light in her was snuffed out with a dog chain during a rape so ghastly that it rendered her comatose for […]






Shenaz Treasury Has Her Say

Shenaz Treasury Has Her Say

Actor and media personality Shenaz Treasury has had an eventful week. As a spontaneous reaction to the Uber rape case in Delhi, she posted an open letter on her Facebook page. The letter was addressed to influential thought leaders in India, all of them men incidentally. She shared personal episodes of violation and stated that […]






Kamla Bhasin: ‘Rapists Are Made..Not Born’

Kamla Bhasin: ‘Rapists Are Made..Not Born’

On November 19, Men’s Day was celebrated across the world and promotional videos by consumer companies tried to remind us of the men we could always count on in our lives.Coincidentally, in the season finale of Satyamev Jayate, various participants debated the meaning of a ‘good man’ and how misunderstood the idea of masculinity was in […]






A Letter To The Predators

A Letter To The Predators

I  have never really understood the concept of writing about rapes and condemning the act, because isn’t it obvious that it is wrong? Why do we need to state the obvious every now and again? And in spite of various magazines, television channels, celebrities, bloggers and ordinary men and women voicing their disgust and shock […]






Abused But Passive?

Abused But Passive?

  A lot has been seen and heard about the new anti-domestic violence campaign by the ad agency Taproot India.  Their “abused goddesses” ad has been making the rounds in social media websites, social networking sites and has received a lot of coverage in many newspapers and journals in India and around the world.  Many newspapers have […]






Law For The Lawless

Law For The Lawless

Putting one’s rage in an article is so futile..but I cannot process the law that protects the lawless, contextualises rape and murder, puts the onus of responsible sex on teenagers but  allows a rapist who gored a young woman to death, to get away because he was a juvenile when he committed the crime! What kind […]






The Chetan Bhagat Syndrome

The Chetan Bhagat Syndrome

  Just recently, I penned a post about how parents could do their bit against the Rape Culture in raising children to be more sensitive and empathetic. The Chetan Bhagat tweet saga on Twitter was a classic example to the contrary.  Mr Bhagat tweeted,  “The Rupee is asking, is there no punishment for my rapists ?” […]






Square One..

Square One..

And it starts again. Smriti Irani waving soap operatic fingers. Sanjay Raut blaming it all on Bangladeshi immigrants.Ministers reducing rape to rhetoric, screaming at each other in Rajya Sabha. People on the streets waving banners. Mumbai being labelled as a city of Maximum Horror just as Delhi was named the Rape Capital after the Nirbhaya […]






To Anonymous..

To Anonymous..

  Dear Stranger,  I have never met you. I don’t know your name. I have not even seen any pictures of yours. All I know is that you became a part of my consciousness on a cold December day in a foreign land. When I read about the violence perpetuated on you, my stomach turned […]

* 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!"
