#118 The Masked Ball

FROM PUNE WITH FRIENDS AND COMICS


Chandoba is back.....

There are many things I want to share with you, During my Pune visit, I met (hahahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhahahahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh) three wonderful people, 1st is Sameer of course, who was cooperative as usual.This time we couldn't search together as he was busy in his college activities. Still he spent some time with me and introduced me to a nice human being. Thanks Sameer.

Sammer introduced me to a fabulous indrajal phan, and a great human being, SANDEEP GOGATE. we (Sameer and I) went to his house, we ate "panipuri" made by his wife and discussed about indrajals. We exchanged some comics too. He gave me some of my missing comics happily.Most unbelievable thing I observed was this guy has removed all his wife's jewellery from the locker and has kept the pile of indrajals in it !!!!!! hahahahahah.. What a person!!!! THANKS SANDEEP
the 3rd person i would like to mention is Shailesh khot, who used to comment on TCP,CW and ICC,He too gave me my missing copies, without expecting any thing from me. I showed my 200 spares to him, and asked him to select whatever he likes, but, he didn't take a single comic.. ( there is a guy who gives 5 but demands 25 in return!!! )he has all of them.. his collection is awesome.. he even showed me first 10 issues,with covers,in brand new condition.We spent some time together. We searched all parts in Pune, He helped me to get 100 acks and 50+ indrajals spares. He even helped me to get some 30+ comics all under no 100 and a Macmillan Phantom Annual. THANKS SHAILESH.


I don't know who has scanned this. But, anyway, thanks to the original scanner.

Looks like you went to Pune for Mating :-) just kidding, great collection of comics, wish I had them. They don't make these type of books now (quality reading)

Hi ICC, welcome back. Havent been able to visit/comment in the blogs for a long since I was quite busy. Thanks for the masked ball. My wife remembers this comic and midnight heist quite well from her childhood days.
Thanks.

bahadur said...

Dear all,i have been contemplating over this issue for quite a while now.
As i understand ,getting comics below 300 has become a great ask.Its next to impossible.So on a general note i was just thinking whether actually we can put Indrajal scans into physical copies sometime.its a thought big time and i know iam aiming in the dark but as always i want to make public what i feel.

if all of us,including all blogs come together and join in hundreds and thousands,it should be a dream come true for all of us.INDRAJALS as i understand are nothing short of GEMS and even to own them is a divine experience,truly speaking.

So please if anyone has any better thoughts pls come fwd and lets know about it.iam sure all blogs wud readily agree,what remains to be seen is whether more INDRAJAL fans sprout up or not.
Remember more the no.,lesser will be the cost and GOD willing if we manage to put into practice,it will be a revolution of its owN kind.
i urge all viewers to atleast share a thought on this.
Thanks

CHANDAN

What started with a simple search for indrajal comics, landed me at actually what I was looking for. Those were the great times and I wanted my kids to have the same. And here I am with all those great lovers of comics.

You been to my home city and had spent time with great fans. I would love to meet them personally. I want to show this treasure to my kids.
