#1 · Posted: 29 Sep 2005 08:51 · Edited by: Moderator
In India there excist now also Tintin comics in HINDI.
Still now Tintin Comis were only translated in BENGALI. Already 40.000 Copies were sold.
Can someone help me to find and buy such a comics please

My source the Newspaper "De Standaard" from Belgium was wrong about the Tintin Comics in Hindi . It's concerning DVD and Video's in Hindi and not Comicbooks.

Ah well, Colonel - at least it will mean that perhaps you can get a bit of rest this weekend, and not worry about tracking them down!

There is a thread about the new DVDs here.

I live in India and would be able to help you buy some of these because I seen plenty of them sice I live in Bengal,where Bengali is spoken.I have never bought a book in bengali but would be able to give you the address of the shop in Kolkata(Calcutta).
Many of my friends who love and adore Tintin have them here.

If you ever go to Pondicherry, don't loose your time with self proclaimed "Mothers" or other gurus, but rather go to the Daily Bread Cafe: enjoy "baguette" and cappucino, and have a look at the Tintin fresco on the 1st floor terrace: isn't he good looking? Doesn't he look really belgian?
Can someone send a photograph to Tintinologist.org?
By the way, I didn't find any Hindi or Bengali Tintin in Tamil Nadu, Kerala and Bangalore - which has nothing to do wit Bengal! - . But as I flew over Adam's Bridge to Sri Lanka (you can't walk or swim any more...) I found lots of Tintin books in beautiful singalese writing. It looks almost like Maya glyphs!
Harrock n roll

The first batch of eight Tintin books are now finally available in Hindi.

No, I prefer it in English - he names in Hindi sound like the headlines of some Hindi news channel.

Besides, the swear words used by Captain Haddock sound a bit, err, weird.

“Karoro karoro kaale kachue (“Millions and millions of black turtles!”) for “Ten thousand thundering typhoons!”

And Snowy’s name is changed to Natkhat (naughty)… Sheesh! Too much for me to digest - I prefer either Snowy or Milou.

Use of hindi words (devanagari or transliteration) in this thread is unavoidable for Hindi readers.
Copyright years are missing in the hindi books.
टूटा हुआ कान (Broken Ear),and सम्राट ओटोकॉर का राजदंड (Ottokar's Sceptre) are two books I read.
The translation is not very great, but the second book is better than the first. But English is the preferred language for most books if readers can read English.

I live in West Bengal,India and have some Bengali books like Pharaoher Churut(Cigars of the Pharaoh),Ashchorjo Ulka(The Shooting Star),Kankra Rohosyo(The Crab with the Golden Claws),Caculuser Kando(The Calculus Affair) and others published by Ananda Publishers.I also viewed some Hindi Tintin books published by Om Books.It is good and gives an Indian touch to Tintin's adventures.However, while the pictures are okay,the translations are somewhat vague.It can easily be perceived that most of the dialogues are directy translated from English, with some minor changes here and there.Personally,reading English translations of Tintin books by Leslie-Lonsdale Cooper and Michael Turner gives me more pleasure than reading Tintin in any other language(except perhaps French which I have not been fortunate enough to learn yet).Somehow,Tintin speaking Hindi just does not seem right. So if it is to choose between Hindi(or Bengali) and English, I would choose the latter.But Tintin speaking Hindi is interesting nevertheless and can be easily found in Amazon.in and Flipkart.com.I am thinking of buying a few Hindi Tintin books, even if just to add to my collections.
