Hi friends, let us begin!

Chaitra issue begins with another beautiful photograph from Golconda fort, the tribute this month has been paid to Queen Durgawati, she was quite a brave lady and great administrator.

Surrender by Scott Hastie: Beautiful.

Of drum-rolls and Indians by saptarchi: Very true words. When women [and men] blame that all evil against women are done by men they simply don’t admit the massive damages done by women!

Fogline by Brieuc Martin Onraet 11: Another fascinating piece. Really love his way of writing! His characters are so much fun!

The faith mark by Raghunandan Kuppuswamy: good one! Well, he certainly got a nice reward for being religious.

The coming of Magna by Troy David Loy: Will love to know a bit more about Mirus, he sounds like an interesting character..

Drowning in a tear… by Dom Collucci: Beautifully said.

Bitter Pill dose 40 by Bitter Pill: Press 3: Press these days is not news, it is lie and conning.

The warrior of light by Brendan: very beautiful and wise.

The year that never was by Pat Ritters 2: Interesting and well-written piece, I did not knew people eat kangaroos!

Treats:

Wish you all a happy holi, lovely greeting Sharmishtha!

5 lovely shots- loved the sun photos most.

This month Linkedin Requests are worth checking out if you are a writer or artist.

The year that never was by Pat Ritter: It certainly is a good story, or so it seems from the first two reads!

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

Agnishatdal book 14, Saptarchi, I like Saptarchi’s writings.

Star of the Month Ustad Amanat Ali khan- Never heard his name before, will check out his songs ASAP in YouTube.

Star of West Geoffrey Rush: He is a really good actor. Have watched him in pirates of the Caribbean, the movies would not have been the same without him.

Star of east Guru Dutt- He was amazing!

Youtubia-Kahil Sultanpuri- Will check him out.

Minutes Together: Thor and Utgard was an interesting read. I have not read many Norse mythology stories. Actually have started hearing the names of their deities after watching Avengers.

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

Parashar- It is a sad story. Vishamitra was a really wicked sage. Far worse than Durbasa, notorious for his rage.

TnW- Word editor ways- word editor stinks!

Scaredy Stick- covid-19 has shown both sides of society, the worst and the best.

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,
Labanya

Agnijaat Chaitra 1427, March 2021

Agnijaat Chaitra begins with Holi greeting, beautiful greeting. I really hope people will practice caution during this extremely popular festival that is all about getting together and have fun!

Indie Author Speaks: 2nd round of good tips about blurb writing,

FTQFS: Very true words, law should realize and admit that women that cry wolf are not always speaking truth.

Techbabble: Raw vs jpeg- will keep the tips in mind.

India Now: Corona diaries 7 – I will agree with the authoress, after all we did elect a bunch of incompetent tyrants for the second time, all they have been doing after being elected first time was shove the country into a pit from where it will most probably crawl out after decades!

SOS: Absolutely true, not everything should be fought against, some things just blow away with time.

Intriguing Tales: thought provoking, then we all know about asaram bapoo and teachers like him!

History of India: This month pre-Aryan civilization has been discussed.

My Pen: wake up India 7: Very valid points. If Indians don’t wake up now and throw BJP out of parliament forever they will most probably become slaves of China this time and that country will never allow them freedom, ask Tibetans languishing in India if it sounds untrue.

Fun and Frolic section:

Tilbaroo station by Pat Ritter: This one sounds like a great, fascinating story.

Agnijaat book 14: Very serious read indeed!

Pikatron September 2019 critique by Editor: Will have to get the newsletter from Troy or Agni.

Why oh why? : Whatever happened to Hollywood? These days I prefer watching U.K. and Australian movies.

Indian Raga Now:

Pradeep- Amazing lyrics and great singer! His songs move the very soul~

SPOTLIGHT ON- ABBA- One of my favorites if not favorite group!

Window to West – Abbott and Costello meet mummy: Hilarious!

Falgun Shots: Four lovely shots!

Youtube channel: Already checked them all out.

Storytime: poetry from Patreon: Absolutely gorgeous painting of dancing santhals and a poetry that goes with it.

Charkapuja: It is quite popular in rural Bengal, you will see people decked up as Lord Shiva or Mother Goddess Kali out in the street

Theme: Chimera- Seven cute paintings.

The cartoon Mr Stick: true words, incompetency is first name of our current rulers.

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!

Yours sincerely,
Labanya
