No, Karan Johar Did Not Sell The Nation, We Did  

No, Karan Johar Did Not Sell The Nation, We Did  

How easy it is to judge folks whose shoes we have not walked in. The largely lonely battle Karan Johar fought to save his film from hyper nationalist bullies and his desperate video which I could not bring myself to watch, the patriotism tax of Rs five crore and the backlash that followed did not […]

No, Hate Is Not The New Normal

No,  Hate Is Not The New Normal

An old woman bashes a bunch of puppies to death because she cannot stand the noise they and their mother are making in the neighbourhood. Visuals of a man killing stray dogs in Delhi go viral. A  mother elephant and her babies are stoned randomly on the Wayanad-Mysore NH. A man is beaten and tied […]

The Convenient Patriotism Of Anupam Kher

The Convenient Patriotism Of Anupam Kher

  Many years ago when Javed Akhtar along with Shabana Azmi was touring the country to present the stage adaptation of Shaukat Azmi’s book Kaifi Aur Main, I had asked him at a press meet if the Ganga Jamni tehzeeb he represented so beautifully would fade away after him along with a few remaining voices […]

The Politicisation Of Dissent

The Politicisation Of Dissent

In Pyaasa, Guru Dutt’s 1957 classic, the protagonist Vijay (He too is an anti-hero who takes on the establishment but his weapons unlike the edgy Vijay we saw in the 70s are poems, not punches) goes wandering in the lanes where young women are being bought and sold as objects of sexual gratification and sings, […]

Husain-The Legacy Of Love

Husain-The Legacy Of Love

  Maqbool Fida Husain passed away on June 9, in 2011 and left behind a legacy that is misunderstood by a few but loved and celebrated by many. Many years ago, he was visiting Husain Sankalana in Bangalore and sat chatting with journalists. Bare feet, a long brush in hand, eyes twinkling with laughter. Despite […]

The Freedom To Muzzle

The Freedom To Muzzle

Have they come for you yet? They could be anyone. A new oraganisation committed to keeping women out of pubs, jeans, self-hoods and a sense of freedom. Khap elders calculating whether you can fall in love with a boy in the same village and if you do, whether you should be hung in public or […]

The Chatter About God

The Chatter About God

We believe that God made this Universe and populated our World with His creatures including his masterful creation, humankind. Strangely, we also believe that He then called all those he had made in his own image and said, “I now pronounce you Hindu and Muslim. And Jew and Christian and Buddhist and Jain and Sikh.” […]

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!"
