Speak

All you
Who are silent now
A time will come
When they run out
Of others
And turn you
Into one.

Then who
Will light that candle
And march through the streets
For you
And who will shield you
With their broken limbs
And who will plead your case
In hoarse over used tones?
Speak.

Redefining Nationhood
For Indian writers writing in English, this is a tumultuous time to be alive. Politically and culturally speaking, a lot is happening in our nation today. And these posts are our attempt to decipher, understand, and explore the concept of nationhood. Our writing is a celebration of what it means to belong to a nation that is as diverse and pluralistic as India is. And in this attempt, if we persuade people away from propaganda, we might have just created literature.
Do you think we have?
