A bunch of creative and imaginative people gather at the corner of the street every Saturday night, sipping tea and exploring the wonders of their own worlds. What they imagine is not real, what is real does not concern them. Time comes to a stand with every cup they drink. 

You don't need to find this place; just dream and it will find you...

song writing

Let's just say we wrote a few songs under a band name "Zeest" 

Anchor Gully is an initiative taken by a group of imaginative individuals. There is no particular business here, no fancy taglines or lengthy mottos. It is more to do with the creative freedom each one has over what they love to do. This isn't about success or failure, it isn't about competing with everyone - it doesn't have to be. It isn't even about doing the right thing - it's only about sharing a thought with the world - that has been so far only confined to someone's imagination. Your profession doesn't matter here, it doesn't matter if you are a school teacher or a top executive of your business empire. You just need to be creative and that is all that counts here.
