Quite a few days and weeks have passed since I wrote a little bit of a story that had been doing its rounds inside my head. After signing off in a rather flimsy way as ‘End of Part I’, I am now at a loss to write the rest of it. There have been a few possible scenarios that I thought of but all of which I rejected. They were either a little to melodramatic or too morose to be put down in real words. In short I have not been able to strike the balance needed to write that little piece again. Looking back at what I have wrote, I find it to be a touch too unrealistic. It reminds me of Terry Pratchett minus the humor of course ! I still continue to think how I shall continue that tale and sooner if not later, the assumption is that it shall come to me. Until then !
Comics of the Indian variety has been a rarity for me. Out here in the southern tip of the country, my only access was to the grand old Tinkle and Amar Chithra Katha of yester years. So it was with a sense of curiosity that I went into Vijyendra Mohanty & Vivek Goel’s Ravanayan. It turned out to be a good spell, the whole concept of looking at the Ramayana from the antagonist’s POV. Then again I started off on another set of comics named Comic Jump. There are three story lines at play here :
- Northern Song : Monster Hunters Inc. ;
- Shaurya : Too early to comment but it could be India’s answer to X-Men;
- The Rabhas Incident : Possibly the best of the lot so far. Zombie Survival being the buzz word.
