Times of India group was a healthy and voluminous publishers group who use to publish a wide range of books/comics such as Indrajal,IWI,Dharmyug,Filmfare,Madhuri,Femina etc.
Dharmyug was a Hindi weekly of current news similar as IWI and Saptahik Hindustan,important thing about it was it use to publish Abid Surti's famous cartoon character "Dhabboo Ji"

As and when people recognize the importance of work you are doing you would be awarded BHARAT RATANA.
Thanks.
But one grievance. Why didn's you post the whole page of Dharamyug carrying Dabbuji. I remember that they used to publish other cartoons and jokes on that page. Please post comic pages of Dharamyug as well.
In the last post you mentioned Saptahik Hindustan but nothing of Saptahik Hindustan. Post its comic pages. Ravindra's Musibat Hai used to be published on the inner last cover of this. If you have please post it.

Silly Boy. said...

Please tell me the date of issues of Dharamyug. Whether it was weekly or monthly magazine.

Comic World said...

ICT: Sameer you are absolutely correct.Congrats for being first to comment and to answer.

Comic World said...

Bharat: Welcome Bharat.Yes,this time Sameer has won the race,but soon i will giving some really brainstorming movie/current affairs related quizzes.Are you ready for those :o)

Comic World said...

Rafiq: Welcome Rafiq Bhai,yeah,agree,question were comparatively simpler,but they won't be in next post.Be Ready.

Comic World said...

S.B: Many thanks dear for these words.I wish you should be 'President' so that i could be conferred this award soon. ;o)
Yes,i do remember 'Ravindra's' Musibat Hai very well,in fact i was remembering only this comic article before i find opportunity to put my hands on Saptahik Hindustan physical copies recently.Will be posting 'Musibat Hai' and other articles from Saptahik Hindustan in next post.

Comic World said...

S.B: and,Dharmyug was a weekly magazine,those issues are from the year 1976.

Dhabooji!

I remember it was one of the very first cartoons I ever read. I still remember it: (translated from original hindi)

Drowning kid: "Help, Help. I can't swim."

Dhabooji: What a maroon! I can't play the harmonium but I don't go around advertising that fact" :)

I especially remembered it when some ladies make it a POINT to reveal their weaknesses to all and sundry. Maybe it is their way to bond, but still I totally understand Dhabooji's viewpoint. :)

IDs: Amjad Khan, Kirmani getting shave from Sandeep Patil

ज़हीर भाई ,

आप तो जादूगर है सर जी .. काम के तनाव मुक्ति चाहिए होती है तो आपके ब्लॉग पर चला आ जाता हूँ .. बस ,वो जो " tonic " मिलती है आपके पोस्ट के द्वारा , बस और क्या कहूँ .. मेरे पास शब्द नहीं होते है .. तारीफ के लिए .. दिल से धन्यवाद... यार इतनी पुरानी कॉमिक्स और किताबों का जुगाड़ कहाँ से कर लेते हो... मैं सोचता हूँ ...कि मेरी कवितायेँ तो बस दिल को ही छूती है ,आप के पोस्ट तो दिमाग को शांत कर देते है .. वाह भाई वाह .. यूँ ही दिल और दिमाग को अपने जादू से शांत करते रहो.. मैं सोच रहा हूँ कि अलीबाबा और चालीस चोर वाले सेट से चालीस चोर को आपकी कॉमिक्स और दूसरी किताबो को चुराने के काम पर लगा देता हूँ.. ये idea कैसा रहेंगा ? हा हा हाहा !!!

आपका मित्र
विजय

Comic World said...

KK: Dhabboo Ji was indeed a entertaining character.I also use to enjoy it very much.
Well,the quiz has already been answered by Sameer and that 'barber' is Sunny Gavaskar performing over Kirmani's bald pitch :o)

Comic World said...

विजय भाई,
शुक्रिया,करम,मेहरबानी ज़र्रानवाज़ी के लिए.आपको अगर एक पल का भी सुकून हासिल हुआ है इन मौजूदा पोस्ट्स से तो ब्लॉग का मकसद पूरा हो गया.इस तनाव भरी भाग-दौड़ की ज़िन्दगी में अगर पुरअसर सुकून के चंद लम्हे भी मुहैय्या करवा सकूँ आप लोगो को तो ये मेरी खुशकिस्मती है.
मैं तो अपने पास की सारी कॉमिक्स का संरक्षक मात्र हूँ,और सिर्फ एक माध्यम हूँ इन कॉमिक्स के ज़रिये आप लोगों के होंठों पर बचपन सरीखी मुस्कान लाने का.मुझे याद है वो निश्छल मुस्कान और हंसी जो मेरे घर पर आपके चेहरे पर आई थी 'दीवाना' के 'चेलाराम' वाले कार्टून को देखकर..बस यही निश्छल मुस्कान तो चाहिए मुझे बाकी सब लोगों के चेहरे पर भी जब भी वो इस ब्लॉग पर अपने बचपन में पढ़ी हुई किसी कॉमिक्स/मैगजीन को देखे.
अब आप खुद ही बताइये,यदि आप चालीस चोर को कॉमिक्स चुराने के काम पर लगा देंगे तो मै भला कैसे मैं आप सब लोगों की सेवा जारी रख पाउँगा!! :o)

@Comic World

आपसे एक जानकारी की अपेक्षा रख कर के मैं ये टिप्पणी कर रहा हूँ....वास्तव में मैं पिछले कुछ दिनों से पत्रिका से संबंधित एक जानकारी की तलाश में हूँ,किन्तु बहुत तलाश करने पर भी मुझे वो कहीं उपलब्ध नहीं हो पा रही है । आपका पत्रिका संकलन देखकर मुझे लगा कि शायद ये जानकारी मुझे आपसे मिल सकती है...
यदि आपको पता हो तो कृ्प्या ये बताईये कि "धर्मयुग पत्रिका" का प्रथमाँक कब प्रकाशित हुआ था तथा नवभारत टाइम्स समाचार पत्र की शुरूआत किस वर्ष हुई थी....
यदि आपको पता हो तो कृ्प्या शीघ्र जानकारी प्रदान करने क कृ्पा करें।
अग्रिम धन्यवाद्!

Pandit Ji: पंडित जी,धर्मयुग पत्रिका का प्रथमांक 1949 में प्रकाशित हुआ था.
