Critique by Labanya
Hi friends, let us begin!
Shraban issue begins with tribute to legendary warrior Maharana Pratap, someone who fought against aggressors till his last breath. As a child we sort of hero-worshipped him and his type. Well, I still respect his courage, though I have not read about him in details but still respect him
Political propaganda 2 by saptarchi: I too think this habit of changing the names of roads, areas and cities should stop! Do something new if you are such a patriot and name it whatever you want! Don’t confuse people!
Fogline by Brieuc Martin Onraet 3: I really love the style of Mr. Onraet’s writing. Good description of human beings from a third eye I will say. Rather enjoyed the quips.
When Gold went on a trip by Raghunandan Kuppuswamy: Well they certainly are in a spot, I wonder if they will recover their wealth, good piece Mr. Raghu and Happy birthday! May God bless you with a very long, happy and healthy life!
Planet fall by Troy David Loy: Another piece on Meera, another joins Saru brigade? Great piece Mr. Troy.
No one is here now… by Dom Collucci: another great poem Mr. Collucci, beautiful words of wisdom, wish I was good with Zen philosophy.
Bitter Pill dose 33 by Bitter Pill: politics 8: Well, I guess we can now guess who is funding Feku, and India most probably is being colonized by his masters under the disguise of democracy.
Crows 3 by Brendan: Great piece by Mr. B, looking through the eyes of a prophet in making?
The Tilbaroo station by Pat Ritters 1: beautiful beginning of a story and a married life, Mr. Ritter, very sweet piece!
Happy birthday Mr. Raghunandan!
7 lovely shots- from Agni’s June photography.
It is a very nice gesture to share the request made by her friends in Linkedin, you can never tell who may get interested in one of their offers. I just sifted through them, not into this line so…
Dream Angel by Pat Ritter: Sounds like a good story.
Pikatron by Troy David Loy sounds like a great reading material with fractals as added beauty!
SBs’ book in amazon, Black mist and other stories and Tell me a story- both compilation of stories! Will be checking on them, maybe grab a copy and critique them too!
Interview with an intercultural person Kiran Bhat, great interview, thanks for sharing Agni. Kiran certainly has lived a full life! His book sounds interesting if not cheerful!
Asgari Bai- Never heard her name, will check out the videos in YouTube.
Anna Pacquain: She is a promising actress, but in this era of comics and superhero movies acting is slowly vanishing from Hollywood, it is now all special effects, no story, no acting!
Om Puri- Big fan of this actor!
Youtubia-Deshbhakt Watched a few episodes of Deshbhakt, he is honest, funny and decent. God bless people like him who are restoring faith on Indians even if slightly.
Minutes Together: Bad cat was one creepy story! Fetching kids is too much!
Loved the Bengali poem and the hindi poem both. Thank you for adding my work Shraban in your ezine Agni.
Prahlad- That was one control freak father! Hey if your son loves your enemy let him be, ask him to leave your kingdom! You don’t have any right to kill him!
TnW- When bad things happen- good suggestions!
Scaredy Stick- True again Mr. Stick, your fears are quite valid.
The sketches all through the ezine were pretty, very colourful and lovely.
That is it I guess! See you again next month, and thank you Agni/Sharmishtha for translating my works!
