War is a good lesson to mankind to not fight again. But as usual we very quickly forget or someone else starts or creats sitution one has to be involved  to defend.

Can't say I'm big fan of this series, but like certainly. Sharing some from e-collection today, 30+ more are coming very soon. If you like, we can share in future our scans also.

All credits for #1228 to Ajnaabi & for rest to original scanners only.

Hello friends,

Have a good news, hoping many already aware about it. 

Every Bhahadur (Indrajal), Parag, Dharmyug  reader know Aabid Surti ji - a living legend of comics Industy. Many are buying old out of prints comics, paying hundreds, some times thousands Rs. Here we have another chance to get rare strips. I'm going to buy all, may be you'll also like.
Alok who has made a documentary at Indian comics and going to release in near future after reshooting some episode - has informed many of us this good new.

Why to rewrite if think same way, read this news in Alok's words:

Aabid Surti ji's famous comic strips Doctor Chinchoo Ke Chamatkar which used to get published in Paraag during 1963-65 is getting serialized by National Book Trust as Doctor Chinchoo Ke Kaarnamein. Printed on quality art paper with computerized color correction the book is available wherever NBT books are sold. A wonderful collection for all  comic book lovers.

Also, his famous strip Dabbu ji (one of the longest running comic strips in India) from Dharmyug is also published in a collectors edition album by NBT (I am yet to get my copy of this album) which has almost 100 of Dabbu ji's classic strips.

It will be really great if we can spread the good word around thru our Comic Blogs and Facebook pages about the availability of these unavailable rare strips at a very reasonable price (Books are priced Rs.30-35 each only).

I am attaching some scans from Doctor Chinchoo for your consideration. 

 In case if you have missed my latest interview with him, where he speaks about his new books and reviving Bahadur, please check:

Hi all, I am back in action after my brief absence due to personal problems.
I have something special for you today, Its a book that gives detailed history of Rockets and Missiles. Illustrations in the book are simply breathtaking. I don't remember where I got it, probably from a roadside vendor, but it remains my prized possession. I hope you enjoy it.

Edited by Prabhat - Really done justice to this great book
There is only one resolution as size is small.

'Godfall,' Part 1
When a paramilitary commando group attacks a refugee camp, leaving death and destruction in their wake, it's up to The Phantom to track the killers and bring an end to their reign of terror. But, once he runs his quarry to ground, The Phantom realizes this isn't just a single, meaningless assault, but the first salvo in a war for control of all Africa.

 A woman can make happiness bloom all around them! Kudos to you, Happy 100th International Women's Day!

The first International Women’s Day occurred on March 19 in 1911. The inaugural event, which included rallies and organized meetings, was a big success in countries such as Austria, Denmark, Germany and Switzerland. The March 19 date was chosen because it commemorated the day that the Prussian king promised to introduce votes for women in 1848. The promise gave hope for equality but it was a promise that he failed to keep.  The International Women’s Day date was moved to March 8 in 1913. 

The UN drew global attention to women's concerns in 1975 by calling for an International Women's Year. It also convened the first conference on women in Mexico City that year. The UN General Assembly then invited member states to proclaim March 8 as the UN Day for Women's Rights and International Peace in 1977. The day aimed to help nations worldwide eliminate discrimination against women. It also focused on helping women gain full and equal participation in global development.

Hello friends,

    Today sharing a comics, breaking my own imposed rule.

Until today,  I had never posted another  scans of the comics in very short period after web presentation which were  scanned by a person who posts independently, but  informed me (us) in advance. So, there was no question about a regular contributor or about a team member.

I really forget about 3 comics received in Nov 2009 (Frew #: 1047, 1538 &1542) for editing & posting from Delboj, so  didn't inform anyone. Ajay, who is not only a contributor, but a member of this blog,  also scanned and Parishi has posted some days ago.

Delboj was confident in my accuracy, never reminded again. Thanks buddy, I'll try my best to not repeat similar mistake with not only with you, but anyone. It was first time in almost 2 & half year my history.
It was my fault, apologized with both, as it could be created  a misunderstanding between both or all of us. Thankful to Ajay & Delboj, both understood from very first word.

And respecting OUR regular contributor's effort, today sharing #1542.  Happy with result after editing. Try!
