Unreflect

Unreflect

And it is better and it is safer it is certainly safer where the lights only glance off obscurity like the merest droplets bouncing off a ledge and on and away and it is safer not to peer up or down or away or within to settle in one’s own sedimentary layer to be gradually […]






The Mirror Image

The Mirror Image

The room was dark and empty and so were we,   Reflecting our thoughts was a mirror in between,   Of what we know about each other and what we see,   Images vanished, casting away shadows to be seen.   He is nothing but a false manifestation I believe,   “Is it me or […]






Savour The Kitchen Poems

Savour The Kitchen Poems

When the kitchen is not just a place for opening cans or tearing the tops of boxes, it offers the thrill of creation which is shared with poets and sculptors painters and musicians when one is inspired to cook a new dish. This is the essential spirit of Kitchen Poems… an experience, an exploration of […]

37 degrees centigrade. Summer’s here Power’s gone Familiar dark and heat City grumbles Truculent Traffic Whispers, mosquitoes Hum India changes It stays the same I need another cup Of chai Jayaprakash Satyamurthy lives in Bangalore.

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 […]

  Jab kabhi tera naam lete hain… dil se hum intaqam lete hain meri barbadiyon ke afsane… mere yaron ka  naam lete hain bas yahi ek jurm hai apna… hum muhabbat se kaam lete hain  har qadam par gire par seekha… kaise girton ko tham lete hain (Whenever I take your name, I put my heart through agony..

Kamala Das: The Inviolable ‘I’

Kamala Das: The Inviolable ‘I’

“The last breath/Exhaled/Is the last poem/Released. Then/The curtain falls…” But before the curtain fell, Kamala Das or Kamala Surayya or Madhavikutty exhausted many lives, lived free and in confinement..by choice and wrote compulsively and passionately till the desire to live and write both burnt itself out. And the clamorous din following her last breath that sifted her life and poetry? It […]






The Many Seasons Of Gulzar

The Many Seasons Of Gulzar

   In his world, trees are ancestors, rivers are mumbling old men, pines  are charcoal sketches, mountains are Christmas cards painted in water-colours. Children running down hill slopes are fruits spilling out of baskets, rain is a rude intruder pounding on doors with wet knuckles , snow in Manali is a stealthy interloper that takes […]






While We Sleep

While We Sleep

  The stale, rancid stench of them lines the sides of the streets,   those who think they know us,   Trying to keep up with the pace, falling back and losing ground.   The city is always alive – buzzing – reeking of them   Their odour mixing too easily with the perfume of […]






Love Is Matter

Love Is Matter

  Love is a need like no other.Love is matter.The terrible, unstable kind, yes?The wild, sweeping kind that rips every notion apart until only nothing remains. And you weep, your tears are diamonds. Or perhaps the luminescent, sublime kind. The soothing, balmy kind, that caresses every scar, contains tides until only stillness remains and your […]






Somehow..

Somehow..

  I lost my lover….. but love renews itself and surges forever in my heart .. somehow… No vows …. but I still feel committed somehow… I lost my tears …. but still I cry.. don’t know how… I exist…yet I feel a part of me is lost in you somehow.. My soul knows you […]

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!"
