What Ma’s Kitchen Taught Me About Life

What Ma’s Kitchen Taught Me About Life

My mother was a great cook and indulged in cooking as a fetish. Ma was a magician too, adding that special sparkle to anything she touched. She could even snip a handful of wildly growing, wayward Amaranth leaves, tease them with fiery red chillies, team them with un-skinned potatoes, turn them over in an iron […]






Serendipity And Life Lessons At The First Unboxed Workshop!

Serendipity And Life Lessons At The First Unboxed Workshop!

There are many ways to think about writing. And only one way to unthink the jargon. By just writing. And then writing some more. If you were to ask writers who have been published a lot just what they have learnt about writing, they will possibly give you different answers or a response that is […]






Life Lessons In 2015

Life Lessons In 2015

In my home in Patiala, I had designed a little wall ornament with painted cherries and a quote, ”Enough is as good as a feast.” That statement comes back to me at the end of each year when I take stock of not what I earned but what I learned over a span of 365 days. […]






Drenched In Gratitude

Drenched In Gratitude

  When life gives you a hard time, just chill. It’s true. Papa said so. Like when he gave me a card which read “When life gives you a thunderstorm… Find a puddle to play in”. Inside was a little handmade picture of a little boy jumping in a huge puddle. The catharsis that comes […]






Remembering Madhuri Velegar..

Remembering Madhuri Velegar..

My first job as a sub-editor in The Economic Times in 1994 brought me in touch with many people. Some were just colleagues, some were mentors and a few became life-long friends. It is hard for me to categorise Madhuri Velegar K. She headed Bangalore’s Femina desk and we hardly spoke though we worked for […]






Life Lessons In 2013

Life Lessons In 2013

LOVE AFTER LOVE   The time will come when, with elation, you will greet yourself arriving at your own door, in your own mirror, and each will smile at the other’s welcome,                                                                                                                         and say, sit here. Eat. You will love again the stranger who was yourself. Give wine. Give bread. Give back your heart […]






Masai Mara: Seven Life Lessons

Masai Mara: Seven Life Lessons

Honestly, before I visited Masai Mara, I never gave much thought to what an wildlife Safari would be like. I never wondered about wildlife. I didn’t watch much of National Geographic while growing up. But then, I got a chance to witness an African Safari in all its glory and I can’t be more thankful. […]






What Is Freedom?

What Is Freedom?

  Freedom.  That ‘apparently’ ever elusive feeling that many of us are after. All our lives we think, feel or believe that someone or something is constantly taking it away or keeping it away from us. That it is controlled externally, and we have to fight for it. Usually, it is our parents who we blame […]






The Stories Within Stories

The Stories Within Stories

  We all love to read stories or hear stories or sometimes weave  stories. Neil Gaiman once said,  “Stories you read when you’re the right age never quite leave you. You may forget who wrote them or what the story was called. Sometimes you’ll forget precisely what happened, but if a story touches you, it […]






Blaming the chair

Blaming the chair

  It is interesting how parents teach kids to hate and despise anything that hurts them rather than reason out that this too is a part of life. While I waited for by delayed flight back home, I saw a child -two or three years old, whose legs got stuck in the chair. The kid was shocked and screeched […]






Beloved Scars

Beloved Scars

America is abuzz with talks about gun rights and regulations and I’m not particularly interested in this debate. But one bit of news got my attention and it was about Gabby Giffords speaking up about the need for gun control. Her whole life was turned upside down by one gun shot by a deranged man. […]






Together With Maya

Together With Maya

On her birthday today, I remember ‘Alone’, a poem by Maya Angelou. A poem that recounts a moment in all our lives when we lie awake at night with a soul niggle that asks, “How to find my soul a home..where water is not thirsty and bread loaf is not stone?” And then comes 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!"
