  1. I like this Pratilipi. It is neet and cool Hindi/English pratilipi to read. Since I live in Washington DC USA do not get chance to read nice Hindi Stories ,Books or artical. Vishnu Bhai is doing good.
    ( I come from small town Chhindwara, Madhya Pradesh) I still love to read Hindi artical,Novel and Poerty.
