AGNIJASHATADALAM, shoptly, PAYPAL AND PATREON- if you want to buy Sharmishtha Basu’s works

Here are the few sites from where you can buy my digital works, directly or indirectly, and the site that will showcase the works of those sites, let’s start with the showcase blogs and facebook page:

now the urls of Agnijashatadalama:

https://agnijashatadalam.wordpress.com
https://agnijashatadalama.blogspot.in
https://www.facebook.com/agnijashatadalama

email id is agnijashatadalama@hotmail.com and/or agnijashatadalama@gmail.com

For some reason WordPress has blocked my blog “Agnijashatadalama” so I had to create a new blog “Agnijashatadalam” the rest is same, it will be used for showcasing my works in payhip and patreon and if possible I will add a paypal button in it so you can directly buy from it!

If you want to encourage the struggling artist and writer with your huge-hearted generosity ( I absolutely will indirectly return your help via my creations which will be labeled as rewards but I will try to make them worth your dollar(s), if not you know where to contact!):

https://www.patreon.com/sharmishthabasu

You will be able to buy the Ezines, and my other digital works, some are already up in Patreon, will be there regularly- every month, others are available in Agnijashatadalama, where you can see the samples, directly approach me and I will send you the pdf files after you pay through paypal!

You will be able to finally utilize the paypal id to directly buy the ezines, the books available in Patreon and when they will be available in other sources:
https://www.paypal.me/sharmishthabasu

or you can buy some books available in patreon and a bunch uniquely created for shoptly. Do remember that ignore the “payhip” links which I have filled my blogs with. They without least decorum deleted my account (by decorum I meant sending me a one line email telling me that they are deleting my account) so I will place those works in shoptly before june.

I will share the links when they will come up. You can check them via my page there too:

New! Troy reviewed wildflowers in bed of rocks
Touching in its elegance January 18, 2017
A collection of sixty-nine poems, with such themes as love, beauty, and fantastic wonder, I found this book an excellent read on a cold winter’s night when the skies are clear, with the stars alight so very far away.

The Bengali text is wonderful for my practice in reading the script June 1, 2016
In this, the same celebration seen through two different perspectives, I found the poetry quite pleasing to the mind’s ear. The Bengali text is wonderful for my practice in reading the script, as well as a good resource for practicing translating between it and English!

As a big fan of things Indian, this collection of stories is not only informative in its depiction of Bengali worship celebrations, but I found the illustrations throughout with a charm evoking mystery and wonder!

F. E. Esparza reviewed The prisoner of Sand Castle
A Thinker December 27, 2015
I found this book to be interesting to read. The stories are very short and entertaining but I feel they don’t end properly as some feel like cliff hangers. I don’t know if that was the writers intention to do. On the flip side it does give a reader thoughts to ponder on what happen next. So I do have to say this book does make a reader think and captures a persons attention.

Troy reviewed Butterflies from life’s garden
Wonderful! July 5, 2015
This collection of verse got me thinking about those little questions of life that seem so difficult to articulate in words, yet whose answers can be deceptively simple once properly considered. They are butterflies of thought, flitting about the mind’s eye and avoiding one’s direct gaze until viewed out of the corners, as it were, of that same mind’s eye. Great stuff!

This is so cool! May 12, 2015
I love that, not only is this a book of poetry and evocative imagery, but also that it’s written in two languages, including one I’m learning while still a novice.

I must thank the authoress for this wonderful learning opportunity, and a fitting tribute to the great Bengali polymath himself!

Sharmishtha’s stories are captivating. Her characters although purely original bring some of India’s mythological creatures to light with a style of writing that can only be attributed to that of a true mistress of story-telling. Nothing is what it seems as each incredible tale keeps you wondering what is going to happen next with endings that are in no way predictable. A thoroughly enjoyable read!

Enchanting! April 30, 2015
This is an excellent collection of short fiction with cool Indian themes. I’ve always enjoyed Ms. Basu’s paranormal fiction, and this is no exception! My favorites from this are the collection’s titular story, a chilling piece titled Scarecrow, and The Woman in White, of strange goings on in a nightspot. Three thumbs up!

This is a gripping tale that pits evil against the innocent. The story begins with the cruelty that our own family members can sometimes inflict on us and continues with a vindictiveness that sees no end as road blocks and terrorism are used to take down an innocent human being. And as unbelievable as it may appear, this scenario is being played out with many other innocents worldwide as those in power try to take down and…Read More

Another good one! March 11, 2015
I’ve been following Ms. Sharmishtha Basu’s blogs and writings for some years now, and I’ve just finished reading this. It is perhaps the grimmest story I’ve read in a while. It’s dark realism is different in both style, outlook, and execution from the paranormal fiction she also writes. A story of life in India, it does not paint a pretty picture, but offers a warning, along with the discoveries and hard-fought lessons of the…Read More

This is a great story of senseless malevolence and the petty cruelty that people can inflict on each other. It’s an interesting look into the culture of family relationships and business dealings where everyone is out to get you.

Meet Bitter Pill the new kid of Agnishatdal!

Meet the new author of Agnishatdal, s/he is writing for two months now, his/her works are really powerful or strong I will say! Its hard to tell after two posts, here is the author’s self introduction for you:

Who, and What, is the Bitter Pill?

I’m the Bitter Pill, an ordinary scrivener who’s dealt with all kinds of crap from the worst people and finally found a voice to speak out. I’m a remedy for an ever-increasing tide of social BS from silly people who manipulate and exploit others for power.

I welcome any viable challenge offered to what I write, to any facts-based valid argument showing I’m biased or just plain wrong. No other comers will even get to step into the ring. No, so-called “alternative facts” will not even be entertained, not worth my time. Failing valid, accurate critique, readers can take these missives as yr. humble svt’s personal experiences, observations, and conclusions.
I’m a great admirer of those figures like Socrates and Chanakya with the courage to call things as they are, who spoke truth to power at great risk of personal danger.

Suicidal? Possibly, but the pursuit of truth has always been dangerous to those given to abuse their ill-gotten power!

Meet Brieuc Martin Onraet the new Saturday King!

Brian Martin-Onraet was born of French parents in Pakistan, a few years after the Partition. He was later raised in Africa and educated in France and America. A marketing consultant by trade, he has taken writing as a hobby. He now lives in Mexico with his wife, a researcher, and their cat Miao Zedong. You can visit Brian’s blog at:

https://equinoxio21.wordpress.com/

Few Words from Agnishatdal ( aka her creator Sharmishtha Basu):
Brian is well… what can I say about a person with such amazing talents? He is a brilliant writer, an enviable photographer with eye for the very best models! You will have to read his blogs to enjoy his way of telling stories- adding magical photographs (his collection is downright enviable) to go along. If you love photographs and different cultures his blog is your dream destination.
————————————————————————————-

Meet Troy David Loy Guest Author of Agnishatdal and Indie Adda!

Troy David Loy is an eternal student, a writer, and blogger owned by two cats, Ricky and Eccles. He is co-author with Miss Sharmishtha Basu of two published books, and solo author of three books on Amazon for Kindle, with a fourth book on the way.

He lives with his family and values his friends, family, and the flourishing and the well-being of his species in dangerous times.

He seeks one overarching goal: to help make the world a better place in his own tiny, drop-in the- ocean way, one piece of fractal artwork, essay, or story at a time. He battles the Forces of Darkness™ from his secret volcano lair in Virginia as Troythulu while his eldritch tentacled servitors from beyond time and space keep the lab in good condition.

Tuesday Adda @ Indie Adda 14.8.18 Sandhya Mukherjee

Sandhya Mukherjee ruled Bangla movie’s female side I think. I don’t remember any other lady singer who has sung this many number of songs.

Her voice was not perfect but she sang in a very attractive way, you will love her voice in many of her songs if not all.

I did not liked her much when I was growing up but now with a little more taste I quite admire her songs and love many songs, either because of her singing or because of the lyrics.

Bengalis either worship her and go all ga ga over her or don’t like her at all!

You will either love her or not! Try her and share your view!

Tuesday Adda @ Indie Adda 7.8.18 Shyamal Mitra

His contemporary singers, including legends like Md. Rafi said he possessed greatest expertise over Indian classical music in movieland. He sang both Hindi and Bengali songs with equal flair and numbers. He was much loved in both circles too I think, at least in Bengal.

He has gifted both Hindi and Bengali some fabulous songs! Songs that you will never forget like “Yaari hai Iman mera”, “Ai mere pyare watan” in Hindi and “Coffee houser sei addata” and “Ami kon pathe je choli”- just like Hemanta when he sang Bengali songs he I think was quite selective about the lyrics!

He had a very trained voice and excellent choice of songs.

Agnikorak is a poetry book lavishly illustrated. The difference between SBPnB and Agnikorak is their literary contents. Agnikorak is purely poetry. SBPnB is much more versatile.

This book may not show up in Patreon, it will mostly contain very short forms of poetry, like Haiku, Seven, Seventee, Senru, Quatrain etc, so i can illustrate them with my heart’s content!

You will have to check out a few copies to get the feel. Just like Agnimalya, SBPnB the genre of the poems will be versatile. Once in a blue moon you may get a book centered on certain topic or emotion!
