About Us

One of the aims of the website is to provide a platform to retired personnel to share their 'at-work experience' with their relatives, friends, well-wishers and people at large. The website also offers an opportunity to senior citizens to write creatively.

Upon initial launch in 2016, we received tremendous support from our supporters and creative writers, including school-going children.

Since then we have taken a few more steps to expanded the scope of creativity that our readers and well-wishers would like to exhibit through us.

The website now accepts short stories in all formats and on any topic from all groups of writers.

In early 2018 the website was opened to publishing eBooks. Our first eBook is already available for free download and reading.


The Editor-in-Chief of this website is Subhash Mathur, a retired civil servant of '71 vintage.

Subhash Mathur was born and brought up in small towns in Rajasthan. During his school and college education at Jaipur, he was keenly involved in sports, journalism and public speaking. His civil services career has given him a platform for spreading his ideas about modernising tax administration to benefit the commmon man. Post retirement he is devoting his energies, along with his wife Tilak, to public and humane causes.
