About soup

Soup is an independent publication based in India. We are an archive of opinions, observations, photo-essays and stories documenting contemporary Indian culture. Every three months, we compile an issue, in collaboration with artists of various disciplines to bring you stories that haven't been told before. Our stories are based on overlooked details, personal histories, collective memories and insight. You will never find listicles or topical news on Soup, but you will find very real conversations. Some of these conversations will make you laugh, some might make you think and some you might remember quite suddenly at 11:15 PM, on an October night. One way or another, we hope to tell stories that stay with you.
