Hello Visitors

UPDATE: I Forgot to include my friends who have contributed Indrajals, Amar Chitra Kathas & Diamond Comics to my collection. The three musketeers are Chandoba (ICC), Ajay Mishra & Sagnik Ghosh. Thanks a lot for the comics trade. Sorry about not mentioning all 3 of you to begin with.
I am back from my vacation in India. Had a very good time with family and friends. Hope you are all doing well and having a good time. Drop me an email when possible. Will post something soon. My kids are still in India and are enjoying their summer. Most of my Indrajal Comics collection this time came from contributions from the 3 musketeers. Also found a few Indrajals in Bangalore from a old books seller purchased 10 from him for Rs 100, found a Phantom Annual book for sale (Rs 50 bargained down to Rs 30), an excellent book. Also bought some Tintin, Diamond Comics (acquired many through trade with a good friend), got some Amar Chitra Katha as well. Overall, a good opportunity to collect many comics. Weather was not too hot in Bangalore, lots of cloudy days, visited many friends & nearby places as it had been 4 years since my last visit. Enjoyed different varieties of food and had a great time with family. My son had a great time sitting on a camel for the first time in his life. He was able to find new friends and is having a blast. He has learnt to play Cricket, Badminton. My daughter turned 1 and it is fun watching her trying to walk and play with her new toys.
Comic post coming soon. Stay tuned.

Welcome back,

You have been truely missed and missed a lots.

Looks like there is drought these days. No one is posting anything. The time you were here we had confidence to see something new.

There has not been any significant post on any blogs in last couple of weeks. Hope you will get back the smiles.

AS said by CC above you have been missed more when you were near to us.
