Vaibhav, detailed review and well-composed photographs as always.

 

A question. Periodically, participants on the FPN Indian sub-forum use the word "dada" to refer to each other. Google Translate tells me that dada in Hindi means grandfather, and "big brother" in Bengali. Although apparently in Bengali there's a way to add "-da" at the end of a name, kind of a chummy version of "-san" in Japanese. My assumption is that the "brother" meaning is what's going on. Can you explain?

Dada here in sub forum is used for addressing someone out of respect as big brother.. It is essentially bengali word.. Also it is used in Hindi and in hindi it means grand father.. And after name sometimes 'da' is used to address as brother..

In Marathi also Dada means elder brother. In hindi if used for grandfather it is often followed by "ji" like "Dadaji"

Got a set of five inks from the ebay store. The bronze leaf is very good. Good flow and very good shading. Yet to use the other ones.

Mehan,

 

in your blog the color chart Mangal (quite red), does not look alike the Mangal you have reviewed (which is a light yellowish color ).

 

Could there have been a label mistake, or something?

i understand... however the colour mangal actually looks what i have reviewed in the blog... there is some error with colour chart which is from the seller side... probably the scan..

 

I have checked the colour with other users ... its the same colour that my review has...

Thank you for your response, Mehan.

 

I thought it was the colors chart that had a problem.

 

Thank you for your very nice reviews.

Mehandiratta, you are such a tease. You know we can't get these awesome inks from the US. Keep the reviews coming though.

Drooling over these colors, and yes wishing we (out of India) could get them.
Thanks, and keep the reviews coming.

You must know that people in India are also not able to get the inks... as soon as they are stocked on store... they are sold out....

I hope one day this will be shipped outside India....

May be some seller comes and takes it forward...

I am planning to order some but does anyone know their delivery times (shipped to Kolkata)? I will only be in the city for three weeks. Any retailers in either Delhi or Kolkata that might carry these inks, and Gama pens?
