PULP: Stories of everyday, everywhere and for everyone
LA 58
A quirky and innovative take on contemporary story-telling based on real-life experiences and current trends. PULP challenges notions of society, human control over finite resources and attempts to reinvent traditional art forms.
"Chandu ki cycle bilkul chandu jaisi thi;
chalati thi toh chandu jaise chunchun karti thi"
-'Udaan', 2010


The verse in a way reverberates the essence of PULP [live], an online magazine initiated by Ground Research. PULP is an evocative, earthy and brewing idea that germinates from the very word 'pulp'-implying both flesh and fiction, which has now been shaped in the form of versatile storytelling. Versatility that is an amalgamation of the diverse cultural flavours of the country. An inclusive Indian palate that is both the muse and the mirror for PULP stories.

Akin to the onomatopoeic quality of the word chunchun, and the generic name Chandu, it connotes an omnipresent quality, without not being obvious; the stories written and curated by PULP bear a similar resemblance. Stories of those urban mannerisms, hidden identities and even human relationships that make up our day-to-day living; of nuances that are so common, regular and often overexposed and yet they remain unseen from the daily patterns of individual lifestyles.
