Book launch of Bhimayanam
A Graphic Biography in Telugu of Dr. B. R. Ambedkar
at 3 - 5 PM on 29th July 2012.
(English edition will also be discussed and available)
Bhimayana is a graphic biography of Dr B.R. Ambedkar told in the Pardhan Gond art style by Durgabai Vyam and Subash Vyam, with story by Srividya Natarajan and S. Anand.
This art—deploying thick outlines enclosing dotted, shaded space—is particularly well-suited to describe pain and wide-eyed incomprehension in the face of wanton cruelty.
Bhimayana tells the story of a man who did not have to go to South Africa to experience discrimination, a man who has been relegated to being the ‘architect of the constitution’ in history books. While narrating Ambedkar’s experiences of untouchability, Bhimayana is also a robust exposé of caste in contemporary India. It is published in eight languages so far.
Bhimayana has been hailed by CNN.com as one of the Top 5 political graphic books ever published.
The Program involves Children’s interpretation of the book and Interaction with the co-Author.
The event is Open to all.
And Entry is Free.
