Agnishatdal Boisakh 1427, April 2020

Hi friends, let us begin!

The ezine begins with a tribute to Lal Bahadur Shastri, I am quite an admirer of this man with grits, and am pretty sure that he was murdered.

Farce in the name of justice by saptarchi: These are the news items that make conscientious people without the heart of Mother Teresa wish human beings are wiped out of earth for good!

Fogline by Brieuc Martin Onraet: Mr. Onraet is a great storyteller, and an interesting mytho-sci-fi is in making I think. The names of the characters at least hint that! What is inside that lab?

Vikrama aur betala by Raghunandan Kuppuswamy: Smart sculptor. Power mostly corrupts so it is smart to stay away from power-plays for your own sake! Great story Mr. Kuppuswamy!

Gardens of Sarusammog 2 by Troy David Loy: Saru meets Korravi! Great piece Mr. Loy, Saru is like selfish giant of a story I have read as kid. No one enters my garden uninvited!

The dark made its mark by Dom Collucci: Wise words. Everything indeed came out of pitch darkness! Great words of wisdom Mr. Collucci.

Bitter Pill dose 29 by Bitter Pill: politics 5: Politicians indeed use media as their court poets in India. Indian media is thoroughly corrupted, despicably corrupted!

Prophets of God by Brendan: This is one hell of a piece of writing! We human beings will certainly either kill or perform character-assassination if Jesus or Buddha shows up to save us! Look at those who have tried to warn us against high and mighty crooks these days- Edward Snowden for example.

The shearer by Pat Ritters: Well the jailbird walks out of the jail, the bartender refuses him entrance, admonished by him he scampers away to his lodging. What next?


five lovely shots- from Agni’s photography trip!

In the treats section Lucifer’s liegemen links and short description have been provided.

Click goes the shears by Pat Ritter: short description of links of the book about shearers of Australia, sounds quite interesting.

Love of my life by Dom Collucci-Sounds like a warm, romantic read.

Pikatron by Troy David Loy sounds like a great reading material with fractals as added beauty!

SBs’ book in amazon, The heart beats on – a collection of poetry, sounds good! Will be checking on them, maybe grab a copy and critique them too!

Sitara Devi- Her name I have heard and if I am not wrong watched her performance in TV too! Will have to check out in YouTube to see if there are any!

A haunting: Watched quite a few episodes in TV, they are spooky for sure! Their quality is better than many horror movies too!

Balraj Sahni- he is one of my favorite actors in Hindi movies. He has performed in many black and white movies, and was a really natural actor for sure!

Youtubia-One step beyond- Will check out! Thanks for adding a bit about the story. You forgot to change the title though, I was surprised a bit but then thankfully the name was right at the beginning of the post.

Minutes Together: this month’s story “You drank my poison” was Karma dishing out the right dish to the right recipient I guess.

Loved the Bengali poem and the hindi poem both. Thank you for adding my work in your ezine Agni.

Sukanya and Sage Chavan- A story that might have been tragic took a lovely turn, cute story.

Words- difference- Agreed, a good camera does magic on photos.

Scaredy Stick- This type of incidents makes pandemic-time scarier! An educated [highly educated ones] struts about the entire city’s crowded places with their infected son, spreading a deadly disease.

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!

Yours sincerely,



A bookworm transformed into an addicted writer. I love to write and illustrate them myself. By love I mean love, no half-hearted relationship, a full-fledged, passionate love, I can’t pass two days in a stretch without writing/painting (cyber), just feel empty like lovers do when their lovers are away on a tour! Even though I am thoroughly enjoying self-publishing with amazon, but if you like my work and want to publish my works in your magazine, books or better if you want to publish a book of my works please make me very happy by contacting me. Or if you want to sell my works on commission basis only!! contact me, I will be quite relieved. Honestly writing and selling your own work is a very BORING combination. So you are more than welcome! Mail me, or go to- I have one too many blogs, so... just pick up the one you love best from here: (You will get the link to my remaining blogs there) or you can check out my ezines- monthly- And linkedin- [Invite me from your linkedin a/c] my email id and I am in goodreads and completelynovel too I guess I said enough about myself, right? You will forget if I stuff too much here, so if you are curious to know this humble creature just join me in my blogs :)
