Exclusive interview!

Kamalaksa Das - October 3, 2006 7:55 pm

After working at an exhausting pace for over four months Ms Mouse and Mr Duck took to their well earned vacation.Their role as lead actors in Krishangi's upcoming book is nothing short of spectacular. In a rare interview they tell about the experience, their life, as well as their plans for the future.


After having appeared on close to every page of the 160-page book, either alone of together, their task was not an easy one. The script took them around Finland, and even around the world. Some scenes were even shot in the air, on a real trans-atlantic jetliner!


–I am very tired, but also very happy. This was one of the most demanding of my performances, as I had to dive deep into my past and relive very hard feelings, Ms Mouse explains. Still, she goes on telling how this production was one of the most professionally rewarding during her career.


–I've been playing roles in shorter plays for the past year, and I was happy to be back in a bigger show, says Ms Mouse. –I really hope people will like the piece as much as we enjoyed making it, she exclaims. –It was a wonderful time, and I think people will notice it from our acting too. For me, it was like being reunited with my family! I especially wish to extend thanks to mr Duck for all the support and encouragement he has given me.


As for the insights of Mr Duck, he too was more than willing to share his feelings on the play. –Well, my part was really the easy one. I've always been the one who was born with a silver spoon in his mouth, you know. Yeah, sure, I did some skateboarding and stuff, but that was really nothing. But ms Mouse, there you have a real-life tragic heroine, who rises from the ground, and aims as high as one can imagine. Her acting in this production was nothing short of spectacular, I tell you!


- You have to believe me when I tell you, there were times when her co-actors were in tears! And these are seasoned pro's who have seen it all, mr Duck explains, clearly excited about the whole ordeal.


- But now we just want to take it easy for a while, he continues. Although to be honest, we already do have plans for the next book. But everything about it is still secret, so you'll just have to be patient with that one, he laughs. His sneaky smile reveals that these guys definitely aren't planning on an early retirement.


As I leave their remote cottage by boat, the sun setting behind me, I cannot but think that this is a show the public will love - if it's even half as enarmouring as the two actors I just met!


Reporting for Tattva-veveka, KMLX




With these words we are proud to announce the forthcoming release of Krishangi's new book "on the outside looking in".


It is a tale told in three parts, dealing with loneliness, WW2 fighter pilots, misogyny, skateboarding, hotdogs, and finding you own place and your family in this world.


But don't take just our word for it. For it comes highly recomended by our beloved guardian too:


"I have read the third chapter and enjoyed it. (...) Good work! I look forward to reading it in its entirety in book form. (...) The book is very well done!"






So there you have it. Now do you really need another reason for ordering? Remember, supporting your starving comic book artist is a gesture of compassion.


Preorders for the book can be placed through Tattva-viveka. It will officially be released the 26th October, should nothing unforeseen take place at the printers.


The price will be 20 dollars + shipment (which we will figure out the postage soon...)




Plus some pictures.

Please take note that this kind of outreach is exactly waht Gaudiya Vaisnavism needs in order to be up to date: practitioners writing books that speak to the public in thier own words about the path of bhakti and how it affects their life. Buddhist practitioners are prolific in this genre, while Hinuds are practically silent. The seva of Kamalaksa and Krsangi is exemplary. Everyone should read their books and try to understand what they are doing. The idea behind the seva is bigger than the few points of Gaudiya theology and philosophy contained in their publications.

I just got the back and am excited. more later!

Nanda-tanuja Dasa - October 31, 2006 10:21 pm

I hope mine is in the mail :Applause:

All previous books were a blast to read!

Krsangi Dasi - November 3, 2006 9:56 am

Thanks, everybody! I'll try to send some extra books to Audarya with someone, but I don't know if anyone from Finland is going there any time soon. Unless Guru-Nistha decides to drop by and build us a temple, too. There's an empty spot right in front of our house :Applause:


And Nanda-Tanuja, no need to panic, your book is in the mail. It actually left on the same day as Syam Gopala's, so it should arrive soon. But these things would be so much more practical if you just agreed to move to Finland. :Peace:
