(writer - pratheek thomas, artist - rajiv eipe, based on a story by vivek thomas. published by manta ray comics.)

a silent graphic novel (a 'quiet story' because "the rest is noise") whose art does all the talking. if you find it, take a look. it's a compelling story told effectively by the medium it employs. a heart wrenching tale about a child - very evocative, very beautiful. and the art is just absolutely stunning. sometimes some (very few so far) indian graphic novels get it right. this is one of them. i kept just looking at the pages on it when i brought it home. somehow, even though i've gone through it all, it lingers (like a good story should).
