The Medley

is a twice-a-year literary journal run by the students of Hansraj College, University of Delhi. It is a repository of stories, poems and essays sent to us from around the world since 2018.


Borishan Ghosh is a 2nd year physics major from Bengal. A conversation with him at any given time will include rants about the profundity of maths as an art, praise for David Foster Wallace, and maybe a poem recital or two. He draws, he writes, and he solves. But most importantly, he strives to know. He is the closest personification of a jack of all trades, and if he's around, a good time is guaranteed.
Poetry Editor
Harini is a 2nd year undergraduate from the Department of Anthropology. She divides her time between drama, dance, poetry and debate. It's only fitting that she finds herself surrounded by fossils and skulls, or brooding over whodunnit mystery novels(her favourite). On her free days you might find her strolling around and across the North Campus or absolutely owning the podium at debate competitions.
Shatakshi Singh
Prose Editor
Shatakshi is a student of Geology. In her two years of college, she has volunteered in projects left and right bringing more attention to issues of the environment and the people of the tiny-big city of Delhi. This is not to say that she doesn't also have an eye for photography and a hand for writing. Between the constant search of sponsors, writers, deadlines and internships, she has always some time for a late-night walk
Kavyansh Singh
Poetry Reader
Kavyansh hails from the city of Agra, Uttar Pradesh. Engrossed in the world of letters through a degree in English, his brain is a clashing field between pulsating rhythms of hip-hop and classical literature. A self-proclaimed cinephile, movies serve as his inspiration in writing. He believes in being vocal about issues of discrimination and justice an insists that one can be creative simply and still be as beautiful as the next most intricate thing.
Muskan Semwal
Prose Reader
Muskan, hailing from Uttarakhand, is pursuing a Bachelor's degree in Physical Science. Known for her warm nature, she effortlessly connects with people. Muskan finds wonder in physics, approaching its complexities with genuine curiosity. When not studying, she's on the hockey field, forming bonds with teammates. In her free time, Muskan enjoys diving into poetry, both reading and writing, to express herself. With a zest for life and a sincere appreciation for human connection, she embraces each day with enthusiasm.
Aradhya Sharma
Prose Reader
Aradhya is a first year undergraduate, majoring in English literature. Keeping poetry in her heart and soul, she has always found solace in juggling with words and making poetry her comfort space. More than that, she believes music to be the most amazing method to bring together people. For her, Google docs, sarcastic humor and a cup of tea are always a classic combination.

The Medley is the bi-annual journal of Ostraca - The Creative Writing Society of Hansraj College, University of Delhi.
