A creative effort of Sharmishtha Basu… an attempt to capture your hearts! Try it out guys! No harm can come from that on the contrary a magazine can start breathing and living because you cared and encouraged it! 

This magazine is much more direct (blunt, honest, rude…) than my blogs, because everything is not meant for everyone! That is a lesson I have learnt well through my years of blogging and living. So, I keep some for those who are a little more serious readers. Agnijaat contains and will contain those much more serious works in the form of essays, poetries, articles, cartoons, stories… check it out, without readers writing is a zombie  desperate to live! Honestly it will be what I can’t say out loud in open to everyone, so I will be glad to get some very serious readers, be the wind under its wings if you are ready to read an ezine of 100-125 page (with lot of illustrations) every month!

From October Agnijaat and its twins will be published in Amazon as quarterlies- for $3.5 apiece. They will be published in October, January, April and July.

If you want to read any of its Issues write to me (agnijaat@hotmail.com cc sermistabasu@gmail.com), I will send you the pdf for mere 1$, if you want it for free then you will have to promise a critic for it, I will be immensely glad to see that in your blog so I can boast and alongwith that, in Agnijaat’s reader’s comment page-

https://agnijaat.wordpress.com/readers-and-critics-please-share-your-views/

It is a monthly magazine, that will be published on 1st of every Bengali month-
Ashwin- Mid September
Kartik- Mid October
Agrahayan- Mid November
Poush- Mid December
Magh- Mid January
Falgun- Mid February
Chaitra- Mid March
Boisakh- Mid April
Jyeshtha- Mid May
Ashar- Mid June
Shraban- Mid July
Bhadra- Mid August

To buy Agnishatdal’s issue(s)

Well, my friends know I don’t have a bank account, yups, I don’t have one, therefore I don’t have a PAN number either, so my attempt of creating a fruitful paypal account failed miserably.

But that is hopefully a minor hiccup! I have one offer for you, which you may thoroughly enjoy, from 25.6.16 to 17th July if you want to buy an issue of agnishatdal you will have to do one thing-

The cost of the ezine is 1$ and I have a huge amount of books in amazon, pick up any book that catches your fancy from here:

amazon.com/author/sharmishthabasu

and then buy it, I will deduct 1$ as the token price of the book (irrespective of the book you choose) and the rest of the price will be equivalent of issues of Agnishatdal you will get, that is if you select a book of 4$ you will get the Agnishatdal issues of Shravan, Bhadra and Ashwin plus the book of-course from Amazon.

I can assume you wont want 3 copies of one month!

All you will have to do is after buying the book send me a proof, I believe amazon sends you a notification with the name of the book you have bought!

Do let me know if you have some other suggestions for collecting the subscription money!😉


IF YOU HAVE FILLED UP THE FORM THEN WORDPRESS OR HOTMAIL HAS SWALLOWED IT! PLEASE, PLEASE WRITE ME A MAIL REQUESTING A COPY OF AGNISHATDAL IN THE HOTMAIL AND GMAIL ACCOUNT (BOTH)

Agnishatdal and Agnijaat in Amazon from October.

Well, from October the twins will be in Amazon, I have checked out their format, it does not screws up my ezines, so they will be compiled together in three months in one issue and will be published in Amazon. The price of each trissue will be $3.5, if you buy the pdf files directly from me, you will get 0.5$ concession😉

JULY, AUGUST, SEPTEMBER – OCTOBER
OCTOBER, NOVEMBER, DECEMBER- JANUARY
JANUARY, FEBRUARY, MARCH- APRIL
APRIL, MAY, JUNE- JULY

NOW, Though I have told you all in the very beginning that I might do it, publish your works in Amazon, Facebook or wherever I try to publicize your works and the Ezines, IF YOU HAVE ANY OBJECTION TELL ME WITHIN 30th September, otherwise I will know that you don’t have any objections and will publish them!

Love.

Agnishatdal 26.9.16

Hello there! Kartik Issue of the twins, Agnishatdal and Agnijaat will be up on 18th October, 1st Kartik. The last date for submission of your works is 30th September… hurry if you have not already sent me the files.
If you want to contribute in the next issue, check out the page (added below), I am really keen for long time involvement, like most of my authors are trying to be with the ezine for at least six months… If you have something in mind, something special you want to share, like critics, or tech essays, or something related to your blog but for everyone (no marketing- only mutual support of two creative persons)… don’t hesitate, I will be gladder, like Carolyn is generously (super) sharing her reflections, gems of words…
The page containing all the mumbo jumbos of formalities etc…

and if they don’t deter you from submitting send your submissions to sermistabasu@gmail.com and a copy of your mail to sharmishthabasu@hotmail.com, do double-check with me if you don’t see the acknowledgement in blog, DON’T USE the id connected to the blog, they are rarely checked, they are stuffed with mails from wordpress that I check only when I have lot of time and patience.

If you want to write a guest post for me, in my blog Indie Adda (the post will be reposted in FB page of Indie Adda too, and may get included in Agnishatdal) then write something about writing/writers/indie publishing etc. and send them to me, in the above email addresses, and in their case too, be vigilant, if they are not acknowledged in Indie Adda then let me know.

If you want me to write a guest post for you, write to me, what are you waiting for?

If you want to advertise in the Ezines, feel free to send them to me, the charges are Rs. 75 per page (one time), but I will pick up the advertisements, if you want me to create one for you, the charge will become Rs. 150 (one time) I will of course get your approval before publishing it.

Till then… stay happy and blessed!
Love.

Thursday Glimpses 22.9.16

agnijaat logo 15.7.16 2

Men too are envious of men, but their envy is nothing in comparison to the venomous envy women have for each other, mostly. They just can’t tolerate happiness, success of other women, even if they themselves are successful. They are always eying what the other women have and churning their pits to find out ways of ruining that. It’s been a trait from earliest ages Manthara, Kaikeyee, the rakshasis that guarded Sita, the woman who badmouthed against her and made Ram desert her…

This is an opinion earned from vast experience, as I don’t know about women of other countries I can only tell about Indian women, you will have to tally with yours. Once upon a time when women were confined to homes this tendency might have been forgivable, after all, every frog inside a well can get jealous of the one sitting on the wall of the well, but no longer. Today they can reach out and get it, if they can’t then there must be something lacking in them, if not anything else then tenacity, luck, by ruining another’s they won’t get anything. But will women change? I don’t think so!

Agnishatdal 19.9.16 – HAPPY BIRTHDAY TROY!

Troy Photo on 7-11-15 at 00_34 _2

Today is Troy David Loy’s birthday. His connection with me is really funny, just like most of the friendships are I guess!

We belong to two different spheres, his knowledge in science and all other things (that zip over my head) are immense and deep, I on the other hand stack up my brain with things after measuring them with the scale of beauty, spiritualism etc. etc… still he is a priceless reader of my works, too priceless I mean! No one can beat him in that ground-ever! I really don’t know what a person like him, so intelligent and learned sees in my works, but I am glad that he does! Suits me just fine!

So, I certainly am celebrating his birthday with all the joy I can muster from across the pond, sitting in Kolkata, hope you too will join me and wish this priceless friend of mine a fabulous, joy filled day and a divine, blessed life!

Happy birthday Troy, May God bless you with every good thing and more!

agnijaat logo 15.7.16 2

CRITICS

The twins are looking for some writers who will read and share their opinion on the magazines, it will be amazing if they do it on their own blog or they can share it here in the reader’s page, whichever they deem better for themselves.

If you ACTUALLY want to read and share your views write me a mail, I will send you a pdf file, but if you do I will earnestly hope that you will keep your unwritten promise and write a critic (actual) within a fortnight and post it, in your blog or mine and send me a copy via emails, for my personal pleasure, and the link to your review too, wherever you post it.

ONLY IF YOU PROMISE A CRITIC write to me @ agnijaat@hotmail.com/agnishatdal@hotmail.com and send a copy to sermistabasu@gmail.com (Please send one mail to each id).
