Agnijaat Poush 1427, December 2020
Agnijaat Poush begins with christmas greeting, a cute greeting of which we Indians know almost nothing, we never hang our stockings on Christmas eve or whenever they are hung, to most of us Christmas is synonymous to cakes and pastries! Wish you all a very blessed 2021!
Indie Author Speaks: four good tips for Indie authors, to be a successful indie author you have to work hard! Talent, luck and toil will certainly take you to high places.
FTQFS: True words about single life. It is made hard by society but if you can ignore it or rise above it, you are in heaven!
Techbabble: I never noticed this part of camera vs. smartphone photography, they do never talk about the “zoom”, that is a huge advantage of cameras if you ask me. Way too huge!
Corona diaries 4: It is really scary to realize how lie and liars are controlling this country now. Rapidly and steadily they are taking the country to hell and Indians being themselves are sitting on the couch and watching the decline.
SOS: Absolutely! Take out some time to do the things you love!
Intriguing Tales: Light- Ah we grew up hearing the story of Mother Goddess Durga’s birth, and we never grow tired of this story. It is priceless!
History of India: Interesting piece from India’s past.
My Pen: wake up India 4: Indian opposition was never good, it was not good when Congress ruled the roost, and it is miserable when BJP is ruling the roost. They are pathetic. India should have gone for a bi-party system like USA, that might have saved the public from parties popping up like jack in the box and destroying the political system of the country.
Fun and Frolic section:
The shearer by Pat Ritter: Sounds like an interesting story about shearer’s strike of Australia. This one was an unfamiliar term!
Urania’s table 2: Sounds like an interesting sci-fi story, the kind many of us love, ah, wont I love to travel through the universe and visit new planets!
Pikatron June 2019 critique by Editor: Will have to get the newsletter from Troy or Agni.
Bad PRO: Honestly if people watch movies and believe in them, most of them will not visit middle-east or USA, or dream of settling in any of these two countries!
Indian Raga Now:
Rajkumari- She sang like a nightingale, found a few of her songs in YouTube.
SPOTLIGHT ON- Roger Whittaker- What a voice, what a singer! I really loved the lyrics of quite a few of his songs.
Window to West – Dracula dead and loving it: This one is an utterly hilarious movie! Just loved watching it, watched it twice already!
Agrahayan Shots: Five beautiful shots from home-front, they are lovely.
Youtube channel: Already checked them all out.
Storytime: haiku from Patreon: This time a poem, a haiku for a change, about life.
Christmas: I will someday love to attend a full Christmas celebration, starting from scratch to end.
Theme: Centaur- Seven cute paintings.
The cartoon Mr Stick: The story continues. Now our “servants” are looking the other way when farmers are dying under the open sky right in front of their noses. That includes our “head servant”! Where is this country heading?
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!
