Contemplating a blog revival
It's been a long time since I published my last post, 23rd March to be precise. No, I am not on any voyage, especially to any far off destination like Munich or Amsterdam (been to capital for a couple of days only). Not burdened by any super heavy-weight work load bending my back like a spring and not returning from any long needed and awaited holiday from home town. Do not have any slightest of idea of changing the job either. Then why this long gap? Well, whatever be the reason it seems to be over now. The inactivity period is bidding goodbye and I am feeling some freshness in ideas that are circling in and around my head. Am seriously thinking over starting it once again. Much has been published on blogs from Indrajals but still a lot from the later era (1980 to 1990) remains to be posted. One can say that most of the Phantom and Mandrake published during this period were republications of older works only but that doesn't make them unworthy of posting at all. Largely because of improvements incorporated in printing technology made these republished works a lot more slick and gay in appearance, (stories were undoubtedly great, we all know) and there is a relatively younger generation which came in contact with Indrajal Magic only during this period and hence they continue to search this era for their most cherished memory as far as comics are concerned. But the real beauty/importance of these issues lies in the fact that they are an integral part of the Golden Indrajal Journey, the last phase of this saga which started in 1964 and for 26 years continued to entertain millions of indians through its lively pages. Some new ideas are also approachig and I am giving them some serious weightage. Let's see how soon and at what pace I can start it. Much remains to be said. Will make another post soon.
