No, we don’t get to tell any woman what feminism should mean to her

No, we don’t get to tell any woman what feminism should mean to her

The generation of women that came before mine had a different view by and large of what abuse and violation represented. I remember being told many versions of “apni izzat apne haath mein hoti hai” (your honour is in your hands) while growing up and in my twenties by women who could not understand why I […]






Watching Monday Go By

Watching Monday Go By

Of course, I have a favourite spot, In that little bistro It’s right by the window, In a corner, Precisely one ray of sunshine, And if I sit With my back to the crowd, I can pretend I am Alone. One cup of coffee, Filtered, Two sugars, demerara, Milk, a touch of cream. Hot. Very […]






Frenetic In Chennai

Frenetic In Chennai

  Almost a month has passed since I moved back to Chennai. It hardly feels like the city I grew up in. Madras, as I knew it, was a laid back metro, unimpressed by the hustle and bustle and night life of Mumbai and other cities. The city went to sleep at 10.00 p.m. like all […]






Being Closer

Being Closer

  Sometimes strolling in a park, Or walking by the sea At times lazing on a terrace, Or ambling in an open space, Be a nobody, a stranger. Don’t mingle. Collect yourself within. Listen to the sound of the waves, The squeals  of  children playing, Or the din of the traffic moving. See the sky, […]






Alone. Not Lonely

Alone. Not Lonely

I have had many teachers in life who taught me valuable lessons. However I have a special teacher named solitude that helps me keep my balance in many tight rope acts. In today’s life that moves at an unprecedented maddening pace, there are times when we need to just sit back, be on our own […]






Poisoned Pleasantries

Poisoned Pleasantries

Any social gathering, be it a wedding, a party or even a small family get together has a dangerous tendency to turn into a buzzing hive of gossip as long as there are enough people and delicious food to fuel stray sparks caused by snide remarks and incessantly wagging tongues that seem to have snapped […]






Listen..

Listen..

When you are silent inside, you have very little to say outside too. Have you wondered why the world is so noisy? Because behind the noise, there is silence that makes it possible for us to hear it all. Can you tune everything out and listen? Try.   ** Reema Prasanna is a baking coach, […]






Night Has Fallen..

Night Has Fallen..

The lights of a distant town twinkle . Stars dot the skies like diamonds on a velvet cloak. Crickets chirp a chorus. A gentle breeze flows through the undulating countryside. Night has fallen on my world as of now. Enveloping me in its comforting embrace. I love the night. The silence The solitude The comfort […]






Off The Grid

Off The Grid

  Have you ever thought about completely going off the grid? Deactivating your Facebook, switching off your cell phone? Deleting your twitter, tumblr, wordpress, flickr, blog and all accounts that keep an account of your life? Disabling your email, going off WhatsApp? Disconnecting your landline, and while you’re at it maybe even switching off your […]






Wordless..

Wordless..

  A day that passed like every other day; But something seemed to be missing.. The voice unheard ever so far; Came to my hearing… *** I listened, I nodded, I spoke to the voice; I still knew not what it was saying… I moved around frayed and failed; Not knowing why I was gloomy… […]






Monochrome Blues

Monochrome Blues

  Dead hearts, still, a-pounding; A silence so resounding, Melodies of discord abound, Where skies, high, below the ground From shoal, depths, begin descent, In summers of our discontent, They dodge, deaf, deflections, A mirror of reflections A simple, sound, complexity, A nimbly- knit perplexity, A sin, sacred, sacrosanct Ingratitude so duly thanked, This light, […]






Eternity In A Moment

Eternity In A Moment

Chaos looms overhead, flashing lights, blaring horns, smoke, fog and the unnecessary chatter of people rushing past. And we sit, comfortable in a silence that could span for hours but hardly ever does. Understanding nods herald the oncoming of quick social breaks and prolonged periods of hibernation and still we sit, comfortable in a spatter […]

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!"
