A literary magazine

Read, be read, see, be visible …

After six issues of so many different kinds of creative pieces, DoubleSpeak is reflecting happily on what all have been achieved thus far. Above all, DoubleSpeak has managed to gain trust among many creative artists of words and images, from all around the world. In this issue as well, we bring to you evidences of such trusting gestures. We are publishing in this issue a range of poems, stories, essays, photo-albums, photostories, translations, and interesting collaborations. Apart from a host of Indian artists, we have artistic contributions from Europe, Africa, America and our neighbouring countries of Nepal and Bangladesh. We have pieces written by both internationally published and aspiring poets and authors. We have words and images by scientists, teachers, advocates, students and even dreamers. This issue brings to you some excellent pieces and even ones which would need a lot of feedback and encouragement from the readers. The pieces which you would find wanting for any sort of constructive criticism, please do write to us as letters. We are honest enough to publish them in the coming issue as letters. We hope you all would enjoy this issue and continue to support a free online magazine like ours. I remain grateful to all my friends for their encouragement and support.
