Critique by Labanya
Hi friends, let us begin!
Ashar issue begins with another shot from Golconda fort, the tribute this month has been paid to Sardar Ballabhbhai Patel and I discovered a lot of brand new things about him from this article.
Iridescent vignette by Scott Hastie: What a beauty!
Ye reap… by saptarchi: Saptarchi is right again. We never learn from past!
Fogline by Brieuc Martin Onraet 15: Very interesting piece. It’s hard to explain this piece because it is continuation, it is fun to read, that much is for sure!
The dawn of data abstraction by Vasu Srinivasan translated by Raghunandan Kuppuswamy: Very well written and translated piece, I wonder what will happen in the story next month. It finished at a very interesting spot.
Magna- End of hunt by Troy David Loy: Agni Bose forgot about the evil deeds of past and joined hands with Saru? Most probably, you can forget your past but your past deeds will catch up sooner or later!
Come back… by Dom Collucci: Interesting poem.
Bitter Pill dose 43 by BP: We are safe: BP is reflecting the terror every sane human being is feeling.
Stallions by Manju Balkrishna: What a gorgeous work of art!
Dream Angel by Pat Ritters 2: Great story. I am enjoying this story a lot, it is very well written and smooth!
Happy birthday Raghu and Agnijaat and Agnishatdal. Also, Sharmishtha, May God bless you all with the very best in life!
4 lovely shots- loved the baby sparrow photo most. catching a spider with its prey is a tough game.
This month Linkedin Requests are worth checking out if you are a writer or artist.
My autobiography by Graham Clingbine: Sounds like a book worth picking up.
Pikatron by Troy David Loy sounds like a great reading material with fractals as added beauty!
Agnijaat and Agnishatdal 5th Annual digests, They will be out next month, quite an accomplishment.
Star of the Month Reshma- Have heard only one song by her, from a hindi movie, will check out in YouTube.
Star of West Vincent Price: Royalty of hollywood.
Star of east Cheriyal art- checked out the style, they are beautiful.
Youtubia-PBS Eons- Love them.
Minutes Together: Rogue was really cool. Loved reading it.
Loved the Bengali poem and the hindi poem both. Thank you for adding my work rain in your ezine Agni and translating it for me.
Jalandhar- Interesting story, there is a town in India named Jalandhar, wonder if there is any connection.
TnW- Handpicked- sometimes we do ask for things that may destroy us and later thank God for not giving in to us.
Bhandananda- the attitude of politicians perfectly captured.
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.
