Agnishatdal Magh 1426, January 2020
Hi friends, let us begin!
The ezine begins with a tribute to Jaydeva, well, I think many have heard his name, I belong to that category, I have read a few works [translations] by him too. They are pretty nice. These poets are true gems and their talent is pretty enviable!
The great Indian nautanki by saptarchi: Only if it was not performed at our cost!
Masai by Brieuc Martin Onraet: skip the spears, they slightly look like Buddhist monks.
Vikrama aur betala by Raghunandan Kuppuswamy: Sounds like a great story in progress and Mr. Kuppuswamy is a great storyteller! I am all curiosity about what will happen next!
The Meera by Troy David Loy: Just loved the way she tackled the jackass! Served him right! A great character in building Mr. Loy!
Kungfu breath by Dom Collucci: What a beauty! Love clouds! This poem captures their beauty and the mystery around them beautifully.
Bitter Pill dose 28 by Bitter Pill: politics 3: How Bangladeshi communists butchered West Bengal- our generation [honest ones] will sign any paper that claims that!
Clippings by Freya Pickard: This sounds like a great newsletter, I will subscribe or ask Agni to give me her copies!
The shearer by Pat Ritters: New Story! Now, waking up in jail without remembering why is certainly a living nightmare!
Both feet gounded by Citizen Null: New author? An interesting piece, it appears politicians all over the world are getting over-confident. Someone should do something about that! Snip them back to their real sizes I mean!
In the end I will talk about Agni’s works in short-I have been requested by her to do that, to highlight the work of other authors in Agnishatdal, I will talk about her works in Agnijaat.
A shot of Dakshineshwar temple and pitiable condition of “real Ganges” in hyper Hindu India!
In the treats section Agnijaat and Agnishatdal Book 11 links have been provided.
Between two fires by Tony Williams sounds like an interesting read. The interview of the author was truly enjoyable!
The final death by Andrew Mowere- Sounds like a fun read! Just love fantasy stories, especially if they are well-written! The interview with the author was much desirable bonus!
Pikatron by Troy David Loy sounds like a great reading material with fractals as added beauty!
The wraith- It was indeed a cute, heart-warming movie with some jump scares of course. Dearie, you repeated this post!
SBs’ book in amazon, sounds good! Will be checking on them, maybe grab a copy and critique them too!
Binadin Maharaj- Never heard his name. How callous we are when it comes to our talents! Look at YouTube it is filled with Western artists and their works! Wish we were like them!
Tales from dark side: Will check out if I can manage a few episodes or more in YouTube, and another slip Agni! You forgot the title. Seems you were written by Spring bug this month!
Biswajit Roychoudhury- Never heard his name. Gotta check YouTube.
Youtubia-Black Sunday- Will check out! Add a little gist of the movie/series if you can please!
Sambhar Vada is absolutely delicious! Sambhar is bonus with it.
True Treasure David Attenborough: He absolutely is!
Minutes Together: the story this month was truly heart-breaking.
Loved the Bengali poem and the hindi poem both. Thank you for adding my work in your ezine Agni.
Al Biruni sounds like a great scholar, to think he learned Sanskrit well enough to translate books to Persian! Really jealous!
Yayati- Indra really was not a good character at all!
Words- beauty! Maybe it is just a figment of our imagination!
Ponga Pandit- another good set. So sounds like communist propaganda!
The sketches all through the ezine were pretty!
That is it I guess! See you again next month, and thank you Agni/Sharmishtha for translating my works!
