Critique by Labanya
Hi friends, let us begin!
The ezine begins with a tribute to Bal Gangadhar Tilak, I of course have heard his name again and again but knew very little about him, glad to know a bit more!
Farce in the name of justice by saptarchi: These days speaking truth openly is like putting your hand in a pit filled with rattle snakes. You may or may not get bit! Good and effective way of crushing wannabe whistle-blowers!
Fogline by Brieuc Martin Onraet 2: Mr. Onraet is a great storyteller, well, we are inside the laboratory and it sounds like Genesis, angels are creating human-kind! Let us see if I am right or not!
When Gold went on a trip by Raghunandan Kuppuswamy: A new story has started! Something hints that the poor fellow they nicked was very much alive! Great story till now Mr. Kuppuswamy!
Fractal dawn by Troy David Loy: Great piece, sounds like Meera is the future empress of Troy’s universe. A benevolent, strong and brave being! Let’s see….
Relativity not reality… by Dom Collucci: Great words of wisdom Mr. Collucci. Very interesting and thought-provoking.
Bitter Pill dose 31 by Bitter Pill: politics 6: I too quite seriously wonder if Indian politicians actually get votes or just tamper the EVMs, like they manipulated the ballot boxes in past.
Crows 1 by Brendan: Fascinating piece on crows. Their spiritual and animal significance punched together.
The shearer by Pat Ritters 4: Great writing Mr. Ritter, quite an interesting look into the life that has passed long time ago.
five lovely shots- from Agni’s March photography.
In the treats section there is quite a tempting invitation for authors who can afford.
Closing the gap by Pat Ritter: this book is written with noble intentions in mind, Mr. Ritter tries helping parents to understand their teenagers better, to close the generation gap. God bless you Mr. Ritter.
Pikatron by Troy David Loy sounds like a great reading material with fractals as added beauty!
SBs’ book in amazon, The lotus of fire – a collection of poetry, sounds good! Will be checking on them, maybe grab a copy and critique them too!
Sharan Rani- I think I have heard her name but never heard her playing, will try out in YouTube.
Fear Itself: Watched quite a few episodes they are really great!
Bharat Bhushan- he was really handsome, and had an aura of purity in his face, that is what I love most about him.
Youtubia-Nameless 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.
Kandu and Pramlocha- The story of a truly wise sage, even though he was wronged he did not curse the woman who was appointed by Indra to harm him.
TnW- Dreams- dreams certainly are quite a mystery!
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!
