Dear Customer,

This February, ACK Media brings to you a delightful collection of new releases. The new Amar Chitra Katha comic holds a special place in all our hearts. We are delighted to share with you the life story of our beloved founder, Anant Pai. Hailed as the father of Indian comics, he had to cross many milestones before he could finally create Amar Chitra Katha and Tinkle. Here's the story of the storyteller himself! Clever Ministers is a 3-in-1 title, unfolding the lives of Chanakya, Velu Thampi and Baji Rao I. These ministers had two things in common - unquestionable loyalty and unparalleled intelligence. In addition we have a 5-in-1, Kadambari and Other Ancient Classics that throws light on the age old stories of Kadambari, Nagananda, Malati and Madhava, Malavika and Raja Bhoja. February's Tinkle issue is packed with fun and action! Brainwave this month, unlocks the secrets of evolution, evolutionary blunders and much more. Tinkle Digest is now a mix of old and new with many exciting features. And Tinkle Double Digest, as always is double the fun. Hope you enjoy reading our new titles just as much as we do, bringing it to you.

Description : Anant Pai strode the Indian comics industry like a colossus. Using the comics format he told stories from mythology, history and literature to generations of children. Uncle Pai, as he was known, wanted Indian children to be familiar with their heritage. He believed that it helped build selfesteem and confidence. He also wanted to bring the children of this country together through stories. A chemical engineer by profession, Anant Pai gave up his job to follow his dream, a dream that led to the creation of Amar Chitra Katha and Tinkle. Amar Chitra Katha pays tribute to its creator and traces the story of the man who left behind a legacy of learning and laughter.

Description : Early Indian scholars, during the Vedic period (c. 1700 B.C.- c. 150 B.C.), used to write about the glorious deeds of the gods. However poets, scholars and kings post the Vedic period started writing about the human victories and hardships, their virtues and vices, and the all-conquering power of love. Some of the best examples of this transition are Kadambari, Nagananda, Malati and Madhava, Malavika and Raja Bhoja. These stories express the mortal virtues and vices, such as fear of death and unequivocal selflessness
