About the Author
Anant Pai was a pioneer in the Indian comic book industry and he was also an educationist. Disturbed by the lack of knowledge about Indian culture and classical works among youngsters, he decided to start a series of comic books that presented Indian mythology, history, and classics. The books were published by India Book House and marked a milestone in the history of Indian Comic Books with several million copies being sold. Pai later started Rang Rekha Features, a cartoon and comics syndicate and published the popular Tinkle comic digest magazine through this syndicate.
