Indrajal comics no.51,'Samundri Daku' was posted by me on mega Indrajal comics blog "Indrajal on line" on 2nd May.
But this was not an ordinary post where comic lovers can simply download comic,say formal thanks and forget about the post,rather they were forced to tickle their brains in order to download the comic as the download file was password protected,the password was hidden in a quiz and solution of the quiz was itself the d/l password.
Scans of 4 panels from different strips were taken and the d/l password was the solution of following equation:
These were those 4 panels from strips..
Comic lovers were asked to identify the strips by these panels,substitute the no. of strip in the given equation and evaluate the password in order to download the comic.
Till now no one succeeded in solving the quiz hence the unprotected copy of 'Samundri Daku' is being posted here from where comic lovers can download the comic without any brain-storming,but before that let's discuss something about Daku's(Dacoits) in general.
Dacoits,fraudsters,cheaters are persons who use their brains to rob/cheat money from innocent persons by using different-different tricks.Our comic fraternity is also not immune of such persons.
Recently a very shocking and sad incident took place where a person sold DVDs containing scans of Indrajal comics not for few hundreds rupees but for a couple of thousand Rupees(Rs.2000/- for 2 DVD to be exact),those scans which were the result of hard labor of comic bloggers such as TCP,Ajay Misra,TPH,PCB,CW and others.
These comic bloggers put a lot of effort in scanning/posting these e-comics with a common motive behind to share all these timeless,vintage and extinct comics with all comic lovers of all over world.
We all were blogging/sharing comics without any 'financial greed' or profit in return but this person stole/rob our hard work and sold it to a simple and innocent comic lover(Vishal) who is a new entrant to the world of e-comics on net as well as a new blogger.The victim is a co-blogger of Indrajal On Line blog.
Well,such robbers will be always there but its we who need to be careful from their trap,friends please note that all e-Indrajal comics are already available on net hence there is absolutely no need to BUY their SCANS these from any one.You can download these from numerous comic blog which are now posting IJCs in regional language too.
What's the most sad part of the incident is that 'seller' claims himself to be a ardent IJC lover collector and he sold those scans in order to make 'friends' as according to him he was doing nothing except making 'friend' by selling the scans!..really funny and shocking.
Anyway,presented herewith is the unprotected copy of 'Samundri Daku',download it,enjoy and pl.beware of any sort of Daku.
