Hello FPN Members,

 

Its glad to meet you all. Long story short, my name is Sunil Pandya, from Ahmedabad INDIA and my instagram handle is @sunilscalligraphie my passion for writing started around 1988 at that time I did not know even what the calligraphy is. I was inspired by my Biology teacher Mr. Karimullah, every time I see him writing on board I copied into the book and kept practicing for hours and hours.

 

I have recently started practice calligraphy in Spencerian and Copperplate for which I was googling for fountain pens and I found FPN network has huge number of supportive people discussing whereabouts of fountain pens, vintage pens, reviews and lots many more. I am totally inspired by this community and created account so that I can also share my thoughts.

 

Before joining this group I did not knew that India is a Hub of Fountain Pens so a big thanks to the group members. I am also visiting to Abdul Rahman Street, Mumbai to pick up some budgeted Fountain pens for easy writing. I will post my findings soon after my visit.

 

Happy exploring and discussing.

 

Love from India

Hello and welcome to FPN, from Cape Town, South Africa.


To sit at one's table on a sunny morning, with four clear hours of uninterruptible security, plenty of nice white paper, and a [fountain] pen - that is true happiness!

That's nice to hear about you from Delhi. Thank you and will ask help for sure. I will be visiting Delhi in July last week. May be at that time I will need your guidance for finding some good old stuff.

Hello there! Welcome to FPN. Yes, your country produces many nice and affordable pens. I got some Ranga and some Kanwrite and I am very happy. Also I got some Krishna inks and they are very very good!

Have a fun!
