Hi friends, let us begin!
Shraban issue begins with another shot from Golconda fort, the tribute this month has been paid to Sarjoini Naidu and I discovered a lot of brand new things about her from this article. Actually I knew very little about her.
If you listen by Scott Hastie: So true, if you listen you will hear your guide guiding you in the right direction.
Ye reap…2 by saptarchi: Saptarchi is right again. They came to power howling against terrorism and corruption and turned the country into a terrorist country and mother of all corruptions. They are selling the ground under our feet to make their corporate buddies richer. Lynching innocents in the name of religion!
Fogline by Brieuc Martin Onraet 16: “ A cop is misdirecting traffic…” love these quips, another piece from Fogline very interesting one too! It was a touching piece.
The dawn of data abstraction by Vasu Srinivasan translated by Raghunathan Kuppuswamy: Well the man had the last laugh and the king had to return the fine. Good one.
Crawling by Troy David Loy: Interesting piece, a war between two super powerful beings has just begun! Rest will be shared next month.
Seek and ye shall be blind… by Dom Collucci: Beautiful.
Bitter Pill dose 45 by We are safe 2: BP raised a bunch of very good questions about our new rulers and the way they are ruling us, sending us to hell!
Gillu by Manju Balkrishna: Don’t know Hindi.
Dream Angel by Pat Ritters 1: Very well written and fascinating, I love these stories a lot, when a person shares his/her firsthand experiences about another culture, country, in this case about another era!
Happy birthday Raghu and Agnijaat and Agnishatdal. Also, Sharmishtha, May God bless you all with the very best in life!
Sfulingo and Agnidal 5 in Kindle: Will be reading them after finishing this book.
4 fantastic shots of flying birds were shared this month.
This month Linkedin Requests are worth checking out if you are a writer or artist.
Release from stasis by Graham Clingbine: Wonder if it is dark or light story.
My artwork stores: The details of Sharmishtha’s artwork stores. Already checked them out, the products are really good.
Star of the Month Gregory Peck- He was marvelous. Have watched more than half a dozen movies by him and loved him in all of them. There is a great photo of the star too.
Star of West: Nomadland: Sounds like a great movie.
Star of east: Pinguli art- fabulous artworks.
Youtubia-PBS Its ok to be smart- Love them.
Minutes Together: The story graveyard was creepy.
Loved the Bengali poem and the hindi poem both. Thank you for adding my work Shraban in your ezine Agni and translating it for me.
Kali- Fascinating story about Mother Goddess Kali! I have not read this one before.
TnW- Laugh- good suggestion!
Bhandananda- Hate-mongers are immensely powerful!
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!
By the way if you see any other Labanya in Sharmishtha’s social circle that will not be me. I don’t use my pen name [Labanya] in social media, use the real one.
