Agnijaat Agrahayan begins with Jagaddhatripuja greeting, another pretty painting. Wish you all a very blessed Jagaddhatripuja, Chhat, Kartikpuja and other festivals of Agrahayan. Be safe and keep others safe!
Indie Author Speaks: A golden tip, if you have a tendency of getting bored and have enough time to invest change your boredom to creativity, do something that will enrich you. What? Select yourself.
FTQFS: Another wise suggestion. Human beings are very good to hide ill-intentions behind the guise of love and friendship. Seen too many back-stabbers to deny it!
Techbabble: This was a horrible experience! Well, I will keep it in mind and won’t trust tech forums blindly!
Corona diaries 3 and Kolkata blues: It is quite evident now that our once trustworthy Press is no longer trusted by educated people of this country, the only people they can fool are the illiterate majority, and that is scary! Just like the corrupted nature of Indian main media. Well, all we Bengalis can hope and pray that Bengal won’t be sold to fanatics, thugs and goons.
SOS: Treat time like a gem.
Intriguing Tales: Cyclops- another story about Shumbha, Nishumbha who destroyed themselves trying to force their attention on an uninterested Goddess. Corruption and arrogance are inseparable.
History of India: Another interesting piece of Indian history, about pre historical time of Indian history, the Mohenjodaro and Indus Valley civilization.
My Pen: wake up India 3: A real eye-opener about unworthiness of our current rulers, how they have money for fun and not for public, even if the public desperately needs it.
Fun and Frolic section:
Proposition by Pat Ritter: This one sounds like a great, fascinating story.
SBPnB Book 11 meadows: Sounds like a beautiful book with lots of illustrations. Maybe, I will ask for these books in return of critique.
Pikatron May 2019 critique by Editor: Will have to get the newsletter from Troy or Agni.
Top ten books: Authoress shared her favorite books from childhood, I have read a few and have not read a few. Will try out the ones in Bengali or English.
Indian Raga Now:
Ismail Azad- I too love qawwali songs, will check him out in YouTube.
SPOTLIGHT ON- Kenny Rogers- What a voice, what a singer! RIP!
Window to West – Shadows on the wall: Sounds like good movie, will try it out if I can.
Kartik Shots: Five beautiful shots of Durgapuja arati. Loved them.
Youtube channel: Already checked them all out.
Storytime: Sonica Chemarin 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!
Kalbhairava Jayanti: I have not read about this deity, quite an interesting read, will read in details as soon as I can.
Theme: elves- Seven cute paintings.
The cartoon Mr Stick: Who will teach these spitting cobras? In general Indians don’t have much sense of public hygiene or personal hygiene, who will teach them? Only God may!
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!
