Durgabai Vyam and Subhash Vyam

Navayana,

108 pages, ` 995 (hb), ` 340 (pb)

The life of Bhimrao Ambedkar retold as a graphic narrative by Durgabai Vyam and Subhash Vyam in the Pardhan-Gond tradition. “An extraordinary book…” says John Berger in his foreword. “No more rectangular framing or unilinear time. No more profiled individuals. Instead, a conference of corporeal experience across generations, full of pain and empathy.” Available simultaneously in Hindi (Rajkamal), Telugu (Hyderabad Book Trust) and Malayalam (DC Books).
