Hello everyone, my name is Koyena, and I am from Calcutta, India.
I am just a 13 year old, but going to be 14 in a couple of months.
As for Tintin, my day begins with Tintin, goes on with him and ends with him.
I've read all the comics except for Alph-Art, and my favourites are Tintin in Tibet and Prisoners of the Sun.
Tintin has helped me in every single thing until today, starting with my studies, interest in traveling, learning French, codes, doing detective work, drawing, with nothing to say about madness;)
And that means everything taught in school, starting from physics to history gets related with Tintin. Even my friends are Tintinologists, and therefore even my friendship depends on Tintin.
Well, if anyone wants to know how I discovered Tintin, I'll say it was a sort of unusual way. Here it is anyway.
In our winter vacation of Class 6, after the annual exams were over, (Dec. 2011), I was watching a few cartoons and movies (Tom & Jerry, Baby's Day Out etc.) on the computer (I don't watch the T.V. or see many movies either), when I came across an all 23 episodes Tintin D.V.D.
And the only thing I remembered was a crazy sea captain calling out a few rude names that used to make me laugh. But I didn't remember anything else.
Also, it was around that time that the 3D animated Secret of The Unicorn was released. So I decided to watch the cartoons. And hey ho! From the time I started watching, I became a Tintinologist.
The next day we were supposed to go out for the day, but I managed to persuade my surprised mother to stay at home, since I wanted to complete watching all the episodes.
Then of course, I saw the animated movie, and after that I've practically made everyone around me mad with Tintin.
And I must add another thing, Tintin has always brought me good luck.
So there. Must have written a bit too much.
So long. Great to be a member here.
Hadtins, the joker:)
