A bouquet of wild flowers 2020 in Kindle

A bouquet of wildflowers

This year most poems are new but a bunch have been repeated.

The poems are about myriad things as usual but a large portion is about nature, my favorite topic. Hopefully, you will like them too. When you have finished the book do write me an email expressing your opinions, I will be much obliged!

The earlier year books will be published in shoptly and gumroad with the same name, that is the 2019 version of A bouquet of Wild Flowers will be published in Shoptly and Gumroad as A bouquet of Wild Flowers 2019. 2019 will be the first bunch. I may add the earlier years later, but the coming years will be regularly published in Shoptly and Gumroad.

It will be a good idea to keep the older versions around I believe.

Agnidal 3, 2019

Agnidal is annual edition of Agnishatdal, the monthly English ezine created by a group of artists and authors scattered all over the world. Agnishatdal is blessed with selfless affection of its creative group, these selfless authors, artists have shared their wonderful creation for free and no matter how much I try to thank them for this gift, it will be nothing!

Agnidal Annual Issues will contain one or more works and an interview of its family members. “Agnishatdal Parivar”. You will read few stories, poems and enjoy some amazing artworks in these pages. Hope you will love them.

Unlike Sfulingo, the contents of Agnidal illustrated is same as the book in Kindle, and if you read both books you will know why I have created my shop in shoptly. Creating is so much more fun here! In case you don’t Shoptly books are illustrated in colour and Kindle books are without any illustration.

The Lotus of Fire 2020 in Kindle

The lotus of Fire
http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00o8m3o5e

This year the book has changed its mood, you will enjoy a set of poems written about God’s beautiful creation- nature. The sets are sky, fort, ocean, rain, desert, flowers and river plus a few extra poems.

There are different themes and poems written on those themes. I rather enjoyed this trip of imagination. Hopefully, you will like them too. When you have finished the book do write me an email expressing your opinions, I will be much obliged!

The earlier year books will be published in shoptly and gumroad with the same name, that is the 2019 version of The lotus of fire will be published in Shoptly and Gumroad as The Lotus of Fire 2019. 2019 will be the first bunch. I may add the earlier years later, but the coming years will be regularly published in Shoptly and Gumroad.

It is a collection of poems of various taste. The poems of this book were written in 2015, when I was in Hyderabad. So the contents of this book has been edited only. I plan to keep most of the poems of this book, even in coming years, as a memory of that awesome time I passed in Hyderabad. Some memories should be cherished! Those months in Hyderabad is one of those memories to me!

The poems in this book reflect my mood of that time. Hope they will touch you!

They are versatile, as all other collections of mine. You will get many hues of life within these jackets. The general mood of this book I believe is happy things, real or fantastical. You know I can’t stay away from fantastical creatures and nature!

Do drop a line after reading them please!

By your good old editor! Few words about the works of my much cherished authors. So the critiques will be honest, short and sweet!

Rituraj by Labanya: A beautiful poem celebrating spring- the festival of love, youth and colours!

The great Indian nautanki by saptarchi: The farce goes on and on for sure, one wonders when Indian public will grow up, wake up and utilize their rights to create a better country!

Masai by Brieuc Martin Onraet: Brian’s photographs and his writing both are amazing, usually one shines at one side! He is one amazing author with magic fingers when it comes to photography!

Vikrama aur betala by Raghunandan Kuppuswamy: Don’t remember this story, so I will be waiting for the next issue quite eagerly. Human beings and their almost always coveting what their neighbours have!

The Meera by Troy David Loy: Troy is an amazing author when it comes to sci-fi and after Saru this is the next character I can swear he is enjoying writing! Let us see what Meera has to show in future!

Kungfu breath by Dom Collucci: When it comes to poems about nature no one can beat soulbro. I just love and adore his poems revolving around nature. He turns them into magic.

Bitter Pill dose 28 by Bitter Pill: politics 3: How communists destroyed the crown jewel of India!

Clippings by Freya Pickard: Another fascinating newsletter. Freya has changed the style of her newsletters, so this section will stop soon.

The shearer by Pat Ritters: New Story! Now, waking up in jail without remembering why is certainly a living nightmare! That too in that stinky one! Well, waiting to read what caused the imprisonment!

Both feet gounded by Citizen Null: Well, repeated a post by Citizen Null, politicians are so alike all over the world are not they? One should show them their right place!

I believe that will be it for my critique as an editor, you will have to read the rest in Ezine. Of course there is truckloads of more works there!

Wildflowers in bed of rocks 2019

Wildflowers in bed of rocks 2019
https://www.amazon.com/dp/b0105j2jfe

To every heart that smiles in storms. To every flower that teaches us to smile in adversity and privileged conditions! Tells us as they smile sitting in thorns, deserts and gentle gardens – Smile and you will spread light all around you, no matter how bleak your surrounding is!

Salutes to those who smile no matter where they are.

Human world is equally inhospitable to light, happy spirits I believe. It takes a lot to smile ignoring desert of unfair harshness of life, thorns of envy, everyone can smile in right environment but many chose not so smiling in right environment is an achievement too!

Hope we remember how fickle life is and use that as reminder to smile as long as it is possible!

This book contains a set of poems about nature, fantastical creatures, human beings and the world they create! Quite versatile when it comes to mood I mean! You know, explaining poetry is a dicey game, so check them out and see what you can gather from them.

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.

Treats:

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!

Yours sincerely,
Labanya
