Sufi Comics booth at Comic Con International 2012

“AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!” Wow, I feel like the Genie from Disney’s Alladin, as he comes out of the lamp after being cooped up for Ten-Thousand Years screaming, “AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!” Over the last twelve months or so I had been busy studying Arabic, Philosophy, Theology and other subjects. The studies had been really intense, with upto 7 hours of Tuition per day! Followed by a generous dose of Homework, Tests and Exams. As I was approaching the Grand Finale of my final exams last week, feeling that there was not enough pressure in my life, a week before my exams I decided to travel to Comic Con International in San Diego…

Sufi Comics will be at Comic Con International San Diego 2012

Some months ago after encouragement from a friend, we applied to participate to promote Sufi Comics at Comic Con International San Diego – the mother of all Comic Conventions and one of the biggest in the world. When I got in touch with them, they told me there’s a 3 year waiting list. Hearing this we didn’t have any expectations to get in. Nonetheless they asked us to fill in the application form, in case there’s space, we may get a chance.

Long story short after a series of unexpected events, Sufi Comics will be participating at Comic Con International San Diego from July 12 to 15 2012.

This is a big moment for us, as it’s the first time an Comic book publisher from India has an exhibit space at Comic Con San Diego. I hope this is a beginning for more Indians to participate at International Comic Conventions around the world.

Please share the news with your friends. If you’re there in town during this time, we look forward to meet you there, at booth #5531.

For the first time the book 40 Sufi Comics in Color will be avaiable for Sale. We’ll also be previewing pages from our upcoming book “Sufi Comics: The Wise Fool of Baghdad.”

40 Sufi Comics now available in full Color

Since the time we launched Sufi Comics, one feedback we would often receive is to have the comics in color. For sometime now we’ve been experimenting with this suggestion. I’m pleased to let you all know that “40 Sufi Comics” is now available in full color!

These will be available for Sale at Comic Con San Diego 2012.

We’re also working towards making these available online for Sale on Amazon & Flipkart.

Sufi Comics: The Wise Fool of Baghdad (New Book)

We’re working a new Sufi Comics book in collaboration with Artist friend Rahil Mohsin & Calligraphy Master Muqtar Ahmed. It’s called “The Wise Fool of Baghdad”. Inshallah It’s going to be a beautiful book & very rich in color! Look out for previews and photographs!

The Chocolate Meditation

Chocolate Lab -- Eat & Drink-1.jpg

Feeling overworked, stressed and overwhelmed? Take a break and try out the Chocolate Meditation.

Choose some chocolate—either a type that you’ve never tried before or one that you have not eaten recently. It might be dark and flavorsome,organic or fair-trade or whatever you choose. The important thing is to choose a type you wouldn’t normally eat or that you consume only rarely.

Here goes:
•    Open the packet. Inhale the aroma. Let it sweep over you.

•    Break off a piece and look at it. Really let your eyes drink in what it looks like, examining every nook and cranny.
•    Pop it in your mouth. See if it’s possible tohold it on your tongue and let it melt, noticingany tendency to suck at it. Chocolate has over three hundred different flavors. See if you can sense some of them.
•    If you notice your mind wandering while you do this, simply notice where it went, then gently escort it back to the present moment.
•    After the chocolate has completely melted,swallow it very slowly and deliberately. Let it trickle down your throat.
•    Repeat this with the next piece.

How do you feel? Is it different from normal? Did the chocolate taste better than if you’d just eaten it at a normal breakneck pace?

Next month, the Ice-Cream Meditation. :-)

The Hindu Hits Back

Who doesn’t enjoy advertising wars. The Hindu’s comeback deserves it’s place in Arif & Ali’s Advertising Hall of Fame. We applaud The Hindu on it’s stand on journalism and the ads are awesome too. Here are all the ads (Video, Outdoor and Print) that I could find across the city and the web.
