"WISH YOU A VERY HAPPY DIWALI"

How I fallen in love with Indrajal Comics, I still remember as it happened only yesterday.

Mrutunjay (1978) was the first Indrajal Comics or Comic ever read. I was around 9 year old, we were waiting for train at Chhapra Railway station where I saw it at book stall. Ran back to elder cousin brother who is 3 years older than me, asked to add 40 paise (0.4 rupee), but he gave me rupee. We both enjoyed it whole journey, reading it again & again.

Phantom & Indrajal attracted me, although that days Indrajal was printed twice a month (I don’t understand initially), everyday goes to book stall. Meanwhile my father was transferred to Gumla*. Even knowing about the day of release of next issue, my feet automatically start moving towards book stall 2-3 days earlier. I always afraid to miss an issue or read it late (suffering from this sickness till now). One of my friend told about me to his elder brother, who was an advocate & had great collection of Indrajal Comics. Thanks to him in very short period, luckly read almost all early issues.

*Gumla district was formed on 18th May 1983 by carving out of certain areas of Ranchi district -that time Bihar state, now it is one of the twenty-two districts of Jharkhand state, India. Gumla is considered to be the birth place of Hindu God Hanuman and a temple few kilometers away from the city off the Gumla - Ghaghra road is dedicated to him and his mother. The district contains mountains named Risyamook mountains mentioned in the Ramayana.

This number is already avaliable online, but I can't stop myself to represent a new & better version today.
