🎇Never thought I'll stay here for 10 years.
🎇Never thought I'll give  shoulder in some rare stuffs in such quantity.
🎇But, I always wished to see completed. Where it was never important for me. But something happened here, later at
🎇Again 3 rare series are flowing... some amazing projects are going on... and I wished to return in this mode in 2019-2020 only.

Came at net to collect some comics and books I love. Later to help persons like me, I started blogging.
My motto was very simple: If not available, I do and provide such way ...many shan't miss it.
In this journey met with many people (names are given in every post) ... lot of memories.
Thanks for your love and support! Our journey from "I" to"We" is the main driving force behind such longevity.
Life forced me to become passive from blogging for some years, Venkitachalam Subramanian was single handedly doing all job with selfless effort by Emile.

Another member "IUnKnown" is busy fulfilling his real world's responsibilities. But, the game is not over....

One more friend "Rajesh" has joined us. Amazing passion for comics. He is not only helping from front in out of print Hindi Indrajal Comics  at , but you'll enjoy his stuffs here and other friends blog too. Some mind blowing projects you are going to read soon.

What is common between these 5 (in fact, many more)?
We are living in different continents at different places and never met - one and only point - Love for books and comics.
We love some certain classical series, characters and some out of print books and comics.
We are just trying to fill gaps ...without any direct and indirect rewards ...
For me, all shared in this blog are out of print as where I live - as can't find in English or Hindi. 

Today I was not feeling fine, but when opened mail ...find a novel scanned especially for this day by Anand 😍...couldn't resist myself making this post.  He wrote:
आपकी ब्लॉगिंग के 10 वर्ष सम्पूर्ण करने पर शुभकामनाओं सहित।नीचे दी गयी लिंक में प्राप्त करें महान लेखक गुलशन नन्दा कृत सामाजिक / रोमांटिक उपन्यास 'सितारों से आगे'।
आनन्द कुमार [akfunworld]

Do you know? Gulshan Nanda was a very popular Indian novelist and screenwriter. Many of his novels were adapted into Hindi films in the 1960s and 1970s.
Dominating not just the Hindi fiction scene but also the cine world with film scripts like “Kaajal”, “Khilona”, “Kati Patang” and “Mehbooba”, Nanda was a stalwart whose creations were eagerly awaited by readers and viewers alike. So huge was his craze in the post 1960 era.
This book was printed in 1970 as his 31st Novel.

Gaurav has amazing knowledge about some rare series of India. Noticing my keen interest in 3 above mentioned series, in spite of  very tight schedules,  he has shared with me many scans.  I'm doing basic editing only as we both like vintage look more. 

First Time Taar in English 

I was able to read 2 Taar in Gowarsons Comics in Hindi only. Since 1982, was looking for rest albums, in English or Hindi. Stars were not matching earlier only.

This time fortunately asked the person who has similar interest in Taar.Provided German 10 albums, with enthusiasm Gaurav with  his family are doing this scanlation, just for some of us.  
If you wish, we can share all 10 albums with you too. 😁

While checking my e-collection stuck at these 11 Iznogoud albums.
Was introduced to Iznogoud by one and only Hindi version by Gowarsons Comics in 1982 or 1983. Read one  and still waiting to read all 29, so far only 14 are translated in English.

Iznogoud (pronounced "he's/is no good" with a French accent) is a French comics series featuring an eponymous character, created by the comics writer René Goscinny and comics artist Jean Tabary. After the death of Goscinny in 1977 Tabary continued with writing the character. The stories have been translated into several languages, including English, and the title has been adapted to animated and live-action film.

Iznogoud 001 - The Wicked Wiles of Iznogoud 
Iznogoud 002 - The Caliph's Vacation
Iznogoud 003 - The Day of Misrule 

Iznogoud 004 - The Magic Computer
Iznogoud 005 - A Carrot for Iznogoud
Iznogoud 006 - Iznogoud and the Magic Carpet

Iznogoud 007 - The Infamous
Iznogoud 008 - Rockets to Stardom
Iznogoud 009 - The Grand Vizier Iznogoud 

Iznogoud 010 - Iznogoud the Relentless
Iznogoud 011 - Iznogoud and the Jigsaw Turk

This book was released after scoring 30th century by Gavaskar on 28 Dec 1983 and breaking Don Bradman's 35 years old  record of maximum number of century which was looking unbreakable that time.
It was era of true fast bowlers and Little Master never wear a helmet in his life time.
