Thank you for the generous PIF 

 

I have two very nice Fountain pens from India which I enjoy writing with but neither of them are ebinite except for there feed. I would love to be able to try out one of these pens. I think for the money you can't beat a good fountain pen made in India. Thank you for considering me in this PIF!

I really love the elegant look of the Asa Maya.

 

I've also been reading lately a lot about India and some European poets who've stayed. Without India we wouldn't exist as we do today.

Our next door neighbors, Shree and Jodi are doctors. Theyre from India. They, occasionally have us over for supper. The food is so good. They also have a theater in they're house.. After we eat, we get treated to an Indian movie. The dancers in the movies are awesome, very awesome.

Dear All,

 

I am very happy to see so many responses and so many experiences each of you have shared about India and Indian pens.

 

I have not been able to individually acknowledge or participate here, as we had a very trying time because of Cyclone (Hurricane) Vardah, which made a landfall right in my city. We were in a phase of no electricity and no internet for a few days and we returning to normalcy fast. The damage to trees, public property and transmission lines have been catastrophic.

 

However, I am glad I have been able to go through each of your entries and its really motivating and joy to read and note each of your experience. I will over next few days reply to each of the entry.

 

As for the PIF, its time to declare the winner.

 

I have used MS Excel to Pick a random no from the list of valid entries here (Post Numbers).

 

The winner is DavidtheGnome Post no 8.

 

​Congratulations!! I have sent you a PM here.

 

My sincere thanks to each of you for participating and wish you best of luck next time.

 

​Best regards

Subramaniam

I have no experience with Indian fountain pens, but I absolutely love Indian culture! Talking with my friend Jessica about her time in India was the highlight of my days in high school!

Congrats David! And thank you Subbu for starting a really fantastic thread, full of people's stories about India and Indians and pens. It's made fascinating reading.


Too many pens, too little time!
