ACK completes 50 years
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.
