Pheromones is a collection of poems—poems of love written in the form of erotic verses about the sensory experiences and intense emotions felt by the characters, the beads of which are woven together in each poem, creating a spectacular peep through the window into the personal space of the poet, where the “I” embraces my vulnerabilities, insecurities, cravings, obsessions and indulgences and indirectly urges the readers to do so too. These are the stories of bodies and souls that splashed across each other and created the greatest gig of senses—stories that the author now hopes to become yours. He hopes to make you feel what he felt by letting you share this bed with him —honest, naked and vulnerable. Click here to Read Instantly.
Black & White
By Srijaa Chatterjee
It’s scary how effortless it can become to hide what you’re feeling, how easy it is to hide your tears behind a smile, how simple it eventually becomes to look someone in the eye and say ‘i’m fine’. from seeming impossible, it eventually becomes an everyday contrivance, a mask that is harder to take off as each day goes by. but it cannot be helped. and sometimes, it’s the best thing that can happen.

Mausam Zindagi Ke…
By Rohit Kothari
Mausam Zindagi Ke… is an anthology of human emotions, resembling the diverse seasons of nature. Life is about vibes, emotions and feelings. There is so much to learn and get inspired from in our surroundings. Just one simple thing to understand is that if there is a tunnel of darkness, there will be light at the end of it. Likewise, if there are moments that make you feel perished in life, there will come a time which will make you feel revived and you will surely rise in it. Mausam Zindagi Ke… connects human behaviour with nature, both being beautifully infused in each other. Click here to Read Instantly.
