Agnijaat Kartik 1427, October 2020
Agnijaat Kartik begins with Durgapuja greeting, a pretty and simple one. Wish you all a very blessed Durgapuja and upcoming festive seasons. Stay safe and celebrate with caution.
Indie Author Speaks: It is a really good tip, and I am planning to keep a note too. I will try to jot down my plans for future and what happened to them meticulously.
FTQFS: Another piece of gem from the quill of a single woman. There are these pathetic losers all over the world that love to corrupt good people for fun better beware if you are good!
Techbabble: Everyone possesses a smartphone these days and majority have linked their financial transactions to it, what a joy it must be for hackers and freeloaders!
Servitude and Kolkata blues: Quite interesting point of view indeed, if one looks back one will agree with the authoress that it is us Indians who kept us slaves to British, not British, they were far outnumbered by us! In Kolkata blues a harsh reality of West Bengal have been exposed. How it has been sold away by corrupt politicians post-independence.
SOS: Absolutely true, no one is without pain, we should remember it when we are in pain.
Intriguing Tales: Foot in mouth- loved the story! I have not read the story of Shumbha and Nishumbha before, have heard their names only.
History of India: Another interesting piece of Indian history, about population density of different regions and reasons of that.
My Pen: wake up India 2: This one too conveys some very serious thoughts about current scenario of India, the unholy matrimony of press and rulers of India are poisoning the country very rapidly. Anyone who reads newspapers or checks out news sites can see how they are misguiding people. No one will have to point it out to them.
Fun and Frolic section:
Hollywood by Pat Ritter: This one sounds like a great, fascinating story.
SBPnB Book 10 flowers: Sounds like a beautiful book with lots of illustrations. Maybe, I will ask for these books in return of critique.
Pikatron April 2019 critique by Editor: Will have to get the newsletter from Troy or Agni.
Top ten characters: Authoress shared her favorite characters from the books, novels she have read, both English and Bengali, some I am familiar with others not.
Indian Raga Now:
Johrabai- She is a great singer, heard a few of her songs in YouTube and loved them.
SPOTLIGHT ON- Kenny G- Will have to check out his music.
Window to West – Wild Target: Sounds like fun, I love good comedy movies a lot!
Ashwin Shots: Four gorgeous shots, maybe Agni should add a few more from the next issue onwards.
Youtube channel: Already checked them all out.
Storytime: Snakeman from Patreon: This time a piece of the long story from SBPnB, it would have been fun to have a little bit more to read, the name is intriguing!
Durgapuja: Finally it is coming!
Theme: Mermaids- Seven beautiful paintings.
The cartoon Mr Stick: It is sad how poor people never get the help they should from the governments of third world countries. They have to become aware of their own rights!
In the end quite enjoyed the Ezine, and its colourful sketches/paintings especially they are refreshing and pretty!
That is it I guess! See you again next month, and thank you Agni/Sharmishtha for translating my works!
