I came late to the Ranga Zeal.  When I first saw the group buy, I didn't take to the look of the clear acrylic barrel, but then I saw the photos of the acrylic in the matte finish!  I was too late to join the group buy, but Mr. Kandan was kind enough to offer the same terms to me.  It arrived just a few days ago.

 

I've come to love bakul ebonite pens.  Classic black bakul is a favorite, but I also love my bakul brown ripple Ranga 4CS.  For my Zeal, I decided to go for the burgundy (pink)/black ripple in the bakul finish:

The pen is resting on a Ranga acrylic thick dip pen which Mr. Kandan was kind enough to have made with a modified grip section.  On the Zeal, I installed a 40mm Ambitious nib I got through last year's group buy.

The lighting in the photos shows off the pattern a bit more than in ordinary light, but overall I am very pleased with my Zeal!  Good thing I came back to this thread to see how beautiful the matte acrylic could be.

Great photos, this is still my favourite Indian fountain pen and has been used almost daily since I received it several months ago. The combination of acrylic and ebonite is a work of art.
