Anant Pai - the Father of Amar Chitra Katha

Hello Friends, 
Posting after a long long time. Glad to see Amar Chitra Katha has not only survived but expanding. Buy original copies and support the best Indian Comics.
Alok Sharma jee has send a wonderful material from Reader's Digest (Aug 1988) about Anant Pai (17 September 1929 – 24 February 2011) with autograph of the father of Indian Comics.

Very truly written in this article, the unconditional love for Amar Chitra Katha helped me to understand Indian history, the mythology and folk tales more than any other book. Although being a science subjects lover (with commerce as extra subject), always got excellent marks in the history also - thanks to ACK.

Can Download and read offline.

p.s. Still busy, but I'll back after 1-2 years with extra details about ACK characters. A hardcore fan of ACK and Tinkle has done wonderful job about publishing details of ACK and Tinkle. We decided to join hands and give new colours. Stay tuned!

  2. Congratulations, such physical copies are worth like Gold!

    1. Ha...ha...ha
      I'll not post ACK scans as the publisher is selling digital also and we are not Kalidas too. :)
      Pls contact me by e-mail, you know my id. :)

      We'll trying to make an online blog with most details - much more than anywhere at net including the publisher.
      But, not today ...busy till mid 2019...
