ACK com­pletes 50 years

The Free Press Journal - - EDIT -

Amar Chi­tra Katha has been the best comic mag­a­zine in In­dia. Started in 1967 by late Anant Pai with ‘Kr­ishna’ as the first ti­tle, the comic till to­day has sold over 8 mil­lion copies. Anant Pai was fondly called Un­cle Pai by chil­dren. His death on Fe­bru­ary 24, 2011 is a loss to the na­tion. Till to­day, ACK has pub­lished over 550 ti­tles, not just in English, but in re­gional as well as in for­eign lan­guages. Anant Pai rein­tro­duced In­dia to young In­di­ans and taught them about their roots and cul­ture in a fun, non-preachy way that be­came an es­sen­tial part of their grow­ing-up years.
