Mussoorie And Landour: The Literary Connection

Mussoorie And Landour: The Literary Connection

The twin towns of Mussoorie and Landour are famed for their scenic beauty and the rare winter line phenomenon. However, not many people know that they have a rich literary heritage and highest density of authors anywhere in the world. While Landour is home to many writers, the most well-known being Ruskin Bond, who shifted […]






Why Do I Write?

Why Do I Write?

  I write because of an innate need to connect. I love it when someone relates to what I have written and they go, “That’s exactly how I feel!” Or shake their head and think, “Oh dear! That’s so true.” I love this unseen bond you make with the reader. It is exciting, exhilarating and addictive. Be […]






Writer’s Block

Writer’s Block

The mind fails to catch Ideas floating like sperms Waiting to be hit by conviction; To gestate and come to life Myriad images, like Vibrant butterflies Tempt; and then run amok, In the dark recesses of mind   Across the hills and rivers, My thoughts run wild Then slip through my fingers Like  bubbles bursting in the […]






On Criticism

On Criticism

Barbara Epstein calls reviewing a special skill. In India unfortunately, no skill seems to be necessary. Anyone, just about anyone, it seems, can do a review of any book, any author, any genre. To quote Doris Lessing: ` … a young man or woman, reviewer or critic, who has not read more of a writer’s work […]






Of Drum Rolls And Resonance

Of Drum Rolls And Resonance

A friend watching a film at home with me said something pertinent the other day. There was a time when actors just acted. They were expected to be just actors. They did not hawk their films by dancing at reality shows. The same holds true for writing. Marketing a book was not something authors did. […]






Why Writers Write

Why Writers Write

I could speak for myself. But would you believe me, if I told you? Writers have a room inside their head where whatever they want comes true. It’s like magic. Really! Only sometimes, things start going horribly wrong. But then that’s an occupational hazard. And since it’s happening inside the head, nobody knows. Thank God […]






The Underbelly Of Dreams

The Underbelly Of Dreams

A writer came to me with a script today and his own story was more interesting than the one he had written. I might have offended him by spending far more time listening to him about his own search for recognition than listening to the reams of material on his laptop he tried to engage me with. This young boy […]






The Right To Write

The Right To Write

I call myself a writer But  do I have a right to? With words broken, thoughts unspoken, buried deep inside of me? And every word beaten back a thousand times.. then picks itself up; wounded, cursed and struggles to earn me a living… Every comma, ellipsis, verb, adjective sentenced to death, like me. My thoughts shackled to someone’s whim.. My pen screaming […]






Unboxed Dreams

Unboxed Dreams

  If someone had told me on the morning of March 1, 2011 when Unboxed Writers was launched that we would be crossing 60,000 hits by mid-June, I would have smiled wistfully. Because, that kind of thing, doesn’t happen, does it? At least, not often and not to people who launch a dream without the luxury […]

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!"
