Nutan Chitra Katha 166 - Janpriya Mamaji

A true gem from the classic Nutan Chitra Katha, a mighty publication house from the golden days of Indian Comics.

I doubt may be its the first Nutan Chitra Katha on the net...or may not be...anyway Mamaji was a very popular character in NCK universe, just like Bhootnath, who was the flagship title of the publishing house. 

Mamaji was an old but energetic fun loving man, check out his SILVER JUBILEE comics entitled to his popularity - Janpriya Mamaji

Hey Anupam Good to see you back in action...Mama ji se yaad aay d'u have some Bhootnath comics (He was the guy dressed as Batman and used to live in forest like Phantom if I remember correctly)
D'u have some Radha Comics too???

Anupam said...

Toon - Yes I do have one Bhootnath comics. He was the flagship title of the NCK universe. There used to be sets when all the 8 comics of a single months were of Bhootnath!!!!! can you believe that

Yes I have few Radha comics.

In fact I have atleast one comics of all the publications I think I know. and I am trying my best to collect atleast one issue of each character or series published in India...

Currently I have about 90character's comics with me

Yaar. socha na tha ki yeh comics kabhi dobara dekhoonga :-)

hi anupam

agar hum bachpan me mile hote to tumhara collection dekh dekh ke mai 'jal-bhun' ke mar gaya hota..

i always thought that i am one of the 'great' comic lover and collector but i take back my this claim after seeing your devotion and collection..

hats off to you friend..

in nutan chitra katha ofcourse Bhutnath was the flagship character and if you remember his most advertised comic was "vijeta bhootnath".

but one of the unforgettable comic from him was "vachan ki Laj" which was second part ( i cannot recall the first part right now)

in this comic you posted i want to add that mama ji was also one popular character and his main company name were 'yangoo' and nanhe mia . when this character came in market my first impression was that nutan is trying to make one character like 'chacha choudhary' .

you will agree that Prabhat, Radha, Nutan all this comics faded quite quickly leaving ony few marks like 'bhootnath'.

there was also 'trishul comic' and the character was munna pehlawan..

more on this later but I profusely thank you for posting this..

great simply great work..

Dear Kuldeep,
Its really nice to hear from someone who too is deeply interested in real indian comics and not the indian reprints of international characters only.

Indeed I agree that Prabhat , Nutan etc faded so quickly. About my bigger project is the encyclopedia of Indian comics history in which i have been working on about 35 publishers so far including the very very rare Neelam, Cheenu, Chitrabharti Kathamala comics. Hope to launch the site in the last week of the month.

Thanks again for the informative comments. Do you have any trishul comic, I want the scan of its logo and other stuff for the site...

Anupam said...

Yes, and I forgot to mention the very strong pillar of Nutan, Meghdoot I do hope you remember him (he is a flash gordon like space adventurer)

Prabhat's Books and Comics said...

Thanks Anupam for post, going to read it first time, never seen this comic before.

Hello Anupam, I've been downloading your uploads since long. Your uploads are very good in quality and you upload some very rare comics, hard to find now.
Recently I visited your blog and found that you are losing interest in uploading anymore comics due to teh very low response. This is not true. Very few people know about your blog. Most of your comics are mirrored on other sites & communities where there is tremendous appreciation for your work. Hence, the response to your uploads is much more than you expect. Its just that people don't post their responses here.
You yourself know that the passion for comics won't die in you or any other comic lover, like me, ever. Hence, you shouldn't stop that passion of yours from letting others experience the wonderful world of comics, especially the old classical stuff which you have. There are many out there who are uploading comics knowing that proper amount of response always lacks.
Please come & join Raj Comics Fan Nation and Raj Comics Junoon communities and post your comics there too so that people get aware about your blog more & more.
Never let your passion die or else we all comic lovers would lose the oppurtunity of reading some classical stuff. :)

Dear Micky,
Felt really great that my links are mirrored and are appreciated. I too am back because I couldn't resist the feeling of sharing the very old Indian comics I have. I want to preserve them, and stop them from being lost and forgotten. This is my tribute to the great indian comics by making it last long. I do want to continue but only with the aim of preserving our glorious comic tradition...

Again I already am a member of both the community. and posting comics in the RCFN as well as in my blog too.

I would try my level best to provide some very rare comics.

Bye
