#ImmortalComicBooks - The Epic Tale of Amar Chitra Katha by Reena Puri and Preeti Vyas : Talk 26 (Rescheduled)

Date: 13-Mar-2021 | Time: 6 PM

INR 0/- PER PERSON (All inclusive)

In 1967, an unanswered quiz question on the Ramayana inspired a junior executive with a publishing house to quit his job and start a comicbook series on subjects from Indian mythology, history and culture. And so Mr. Anant Pai’s Amar Chitra Katha began its journey to being a cultural colossus for the nation’s children, transiting from paper and print to screens and sound. In our Online Talk #ImmortalComicBooks, Reena Puri and Preeti Vyas from Amar Chitra Katha take you on the journey of one of India’s oldest and most loved publishing imprints as it moves forward purposefully into a digital era, one peppered with reading, culture, storytelling, art and marketing. They also share insights and experiences in preserving and taking forward the legacy of a much loved heritage brand and its creator.
