I will meet you there…

I will meet you there…

When they scatter your ashes On the slopes of Landour Cantt. I will walk up Rajpur road And meet you there. On that bendy path by which, The Raj, in palanquins, was carried To its Summer Capital. Where we kicked at logs Laid out to ease the climb And marvelled at the old Abandoned chalk […]






Yusuf Arakkal: The Artist Of Kindness

Yusuf Arakkal: The Artist Of Kindness

  I cannot recall the exact number of times I have interviewed or spoken to Yusuf Arakkal in the past 21 years. Possibly one of my first stories with him was when I interviewed him and his son Shibu Arakkal (a celebrated photographer) for a Sunday edition of a national daily. I remember meeting his […]






Postcards To Kalam

Postcards To Kalam

On July 27, 2015, the entire nation was shocked by the sudden demise of the revered Dr. Avul Pakir Jainulabdeen Abdul Kalam. ‘Dear Kalam Sir’ is a tribute to him, based on a concept that LetterFarms,  a Kochi-based NGO hit upon. They ideated an art project, inviting people to write postcards expressing their sentiments about the […]






Sabeen Mahmud: The Rebel Who Stood Her Ground

Sabeen Mahmud: The Rebel Who Stood Her Ground

  What can you say about a woman who loved Urdu poetry, a cat named Jadoo, Pink Floyd, Steve Jobs and human connections? And who, in her own words, fell in love with a Macintosh Plus computer over two decades ago?  The computer changed the course of her life as it helped her to shape an, […]






Not Worth Losing A Life Over

Not Worth Losing A Life Over

Losing a wicket is a far far better thing to strive for. No batsman would say that under normal circumstances, but given Phil Hughes’ death, he would certainly say that. **The sight of a fast bowler tearing into a batsman has been one of cricket’s most romanticized images, especially in the pre-helmet era. It was […]






Khushwant Singh: An Anecdote

Khushwant Singh: An Anecdote

I could have written an article on Khushwant Singh, but I would rather share some very simple but precious  memories. Neither do I claim to be a writer, nor had I ever met Khushwant Singh. I was initiated into his writings with Portrait of a Lady and Mark of Vishnu.  Though he wrote about very simple and […]






Vijay Nair: A Life To Remember

Vijay Nair: A Life To Remember

  An overcast afternoon and the paper lamps in Ranga Shankara cafe glowed and swayed in the breeze. Friends, colleagues and members of author, playwright, mentor, poet Vijay Nair’s extended family slowly filled up the empty spaces and occupied the benches, chairs and even the steps leading to the cafe. The event organised by theatre […]






Vijay Nair: In Gratitude

Vijay Nair: In Gratitude

Through a splitting headache and waves of shock, the snapshots come back. But it is too early to write them down in past tense. Too early to say anything except that death puts it all into perspective. It reveals just how pointless is the negativity, the greed, the competitiveness, the toxic energy and ingratitude that […]






So Long..Supi

So Long..Supi

  During my school days my father would never get the names of my friends correct.  And this was especially so whenever Sriparna and Suparna were mentioned in conversations. “Kaun? woh gori wali?” (Who, that fair one?) he would ask trying to distinguish one from the other based on their skin tones. In reply I […]






Sunil Gangopadhyay (1934-2012)-In Memoriam

Sunil Gangopadhyay (1934-2012)-In Memoriam

  Silence the conch shells stop the dhakis at their drums the winter air this festive season nips sharp for the  writer’s gone. His pen that  spilled over into thousands of words and more will write no more. The writer whose words could make my father’s voice  mellow and ruminative when he read him out […]






AK Hangal : The Genial Memory Maker

AK Hangal : The Genial Memory Maker

One of my favourite AK Hangal performances is that of a smiling, chess obsessed patriarch in Hrishikesh Mukherjee’s Guddi. He has a little room to himself at the entrance of the home that he shares with his son, his daughter-in-law and a teenaged daughter played by Jaya Bhaduri. All the old man lives for is a […]






Tribute: Masters Of Light

Tribute: Masters Of Light

What does a cinematographer or a photographer do that we can’t? Well, he reinterprets the world through his gaze, recreates it, focusses on moments that say, “Watch this. This is important. Beautiful. Relevant,” bleaches a frame of colour or suffuses it with rainbows. Catches butterflies. Dewdrops. Rain streaks across a window pane. Faces with all […]

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!"
