Valentine’s Day is around the corner. With ‘Love’ as your muse, get featured on our readers’ writing space this month!
February being Cupid’s month, we’ve picked an interesting theme for this month’s As You Write It. From building the Taj Mahal to giving up the throne, people have done various things in the name of love. But we are curious to know, what would you NOT do?
With that in mind, send us your write-up on “I would do anything for love…but I won’t do THAT!” (and of course, you don’t need to take us literally – feel free to take the topic as a starting point and let your imagination run wild).
Where to send: Send in your story to [email protected] with ‘Love Story’ in the subject line, and your story as a word/txt attachment. Do include the name we should use if we publish it, and a brief introduction to yourself (2-3 lines) in the mail.
By when: Please send in your stories by Feb 12th, i.e. this Sunday. The 5 best stories will be published on Women’s Web the following week, i.e. Feb 13th onwards.
– The material should be previously unpublished elsewhere. (Copyright stays with you and you’re free to subsequently publish it elsewhere).
– Keep it between 250 and 600 words.
An update, folks – we have a incentive for you from Zaarga! Zaarga, a new online shopping portal – brings to you exclusive home and lifestyle accessories from the best of contemporary Indian Designers. The products you find here are likely to be very different from any you find in regular stores. You can follow Zaarga on Facebook too.

Women are NOT safe in India, and men have NO clue how we plan every time we go out of our safe spaces. This is no country for women.
Trigger warning: This speaks of sexual assault, rape culture, and gangrape, and may be triggering for survivors.
Yet another horrific sexual assault has been committed against a woman in India. As always, men are advising women on how they should take adequate precautions. Adequate precautions? Do men have any idea what women go through everyday?
Let’s ask a couple of questions to understand how women and men navigate the world differently, shall we?
The plight of Indian women's mental health often goes unnoticed. Co-founders Vivek Satya Mitram and Pooja Priyamvada conceived the idea of the Bharat Dialogues Women & Mental Health Summit to address this.
Trigger Warning: This contains descriptions of mental health trauma and suicide, and may be triggering for survivors.
Author’s note: The language and phraseology used are not the author’s words but the terms and narrative popularly used for people living with mental illnesses, and may feel non-inclusive. It is merely for putting our point across better.
I have seen how horrifying was the treatment given to those with mental illness.
