    1 thought on “Bhimayana”

    1. I love the art; it is naive, but knowing, depicting a world that is fantastic, where inanimate objects take on the aspects of living things, where portions of human beings become animals; but also a realistic world where hatred and snobbery blight lives. This graphic novel puts the life of BR Ambedkar, the author of the Indian Constitution and the first great Dalit leader of the modern era in perspective. It shows us how food, water and shelter, things so many of us take for granted, are fraught [...]

    2. GRIPPING.This is a graphic biography of one of the founding fathers of independent India, Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar. This graphic biography is unconventional and path-breaking in every sense. It is a wonderful read for children and adults alike. It is a visual delight for turning every notion of comic book industry upside down.

    3. Very creative pictures! I decided to go through the book again just for the pictures.d their creative flow! Okay, I read in Telugu translationbut thats not the point!

    4. This book is brilliant! the art is amazing and completely unconventional, the story is gripping and touches your heart. Persepolis fans would love this book. Highest possible recommendation!

    5. DISCLAIMER: I am by no means an expert in rating graphic books so I will focus more on the content.How I got this book?My brother gifted this graphic novel to me this New Year - serendipity.How I read this book?I breezed through the stories while attending the college lectures during a single day in around 4 hours.What is the book about?The book presents the various forms of social discrimination faced by the “lower caste”, the Untouchables. The curse of untouchability makes trivial tasks in [...]

    6. Not a fan of graphic novels and I lack the imagination to appreciate the art work in this book but I can appreciate the written word and I loved it. I will admit I have decided to embark on a journey to understand Baba Saheb and actually know what it means to be a true Ambedkarite. This book was a beautiful aid to this journey giving us details of some of Baba Saheb's personal experiences as a member of the Mahar community which is considered an untouchable caste in the caste hierarchy practiced [...]

    7. "One of the iconic moments in the global history of anticolonial struggles is considered to be when, in 1893, a 24-year-old Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi is thrown out of the first-class compartment of a train in Pietermaritzburg, South Africa, and, he is in his own words, 'accommodated in a tin compartment where Kaffirs are packed like sheep.' This incident- the horror of being 'degraded' to the level of bestial Kaffirs'- is believed to have spurred Gandhi towards his life long and tenacious strug [...]

    8. This is a stunningly beautiful book. It's somewhere between a graphic novel and a children's book, but it is certainly a children's book for all ages. The story is framed by two strangers chatting about caste at a bus stop. Through that conversation, the story of Ambedkar emerges. Through his biography one learns about how simple access to water, transportation, shelter are made impossible given treatment of Dalits. What makes this book extra powerful is that interspersed throughout are newspape [...]

    9. Bhimayana: Experiences of UntouchabilityBhimayana: Experiences of Untouchability details major events in the life of Bhimrao Ambedkar as he worked with other Dalits to achieve Justice and Equality for Dalits.He was the architect of India's Constitution and the first Law Minister of India.The book is beautifully illustrated by Pardhan-Gond artists Durgabai Vyam and Subhash Vyam.

    10. A beautiful Gond rendition of Ambedkar's "Waiting for A Visa", under the patronage of John Berger (Ways of Seeing) and Arundhati Roy among others. According to the National Crime Records Bureau for Statistics, a crime is committed against a Dalit in India every 18 minutes. India's blatant apartheid has not come under the spotlight like that in America or South Africa. This book aims to highlight some of the crimes we as a society commit against this subjugated community. Crime that is not even c [...]

    11. Bhimayana, in its stories, represents a history about which admittedly, I know very little. A history, which in today's context is especially important. The horrors faced by Dalits in the past are represented through episodes in the life of Ambedkar. These snippets from history are juxtaposed with present day newspaper cuttings to show that this is still a prevalent problem. The book also leaves one with a better understanding of the hardships faced by the Dalit community, with which to better e [...]

    14. Gond art by the invincible Durgabai telling the story of India's uprising against the caste system. Dr. Ambedkar is a tough act to follow and this scintillatingly illustrated graphic gives us a window into some of his experiences and resistance against the Hindu caste system; including his falling out with Gandhi. Art is a super medium to learn with. It leaves you with perennial surprise and a contagion of imagery that you will carry with you a long time.

    15. Struck me as just a little bit preachy. The gond art made the panels disorientating initially, but you get used to it and learn to enjoy it (now that I think of it, I would rather not have the book any other way). A very creative and educational book - I certainly want to read more about dalit history now.

    16. I loved the open space idea, but at some points it was making the chronology of dialogs impossible to decipher. I also believe that for someone who doesn´t know history of India quite well, some parts would be a little difficult to understand. Plot might be a little chaotic.But in general, a great idea and realization.

    17. This was certainly an eye-opener as to how the Dalits have been treated in India. So I learned something. I would probably have never read a traditional book on this subject, so going the graphic route was a good idea, even though it's not my kind of art.

    18. Amazing novel . Totally mesmerizing. How brilliantly the story of Ambedkar is depicted not just through texts but through Digna as well . A MuSt read .

    19. nice, basic introduction to ambedkar's thoughts. i like the idea of a graphic novel without boxes, it frees the pages.

    20. Gond art is soooooo goodI feel like they should have mentioned it was based on Ambedkars autobiographical notes on the cover, I could have saved so much time I spent dilly dallying in the store

    21. I didn't know enough about Indian history to understand what was going on ever but this was so so pretty

    22. This is a complete delight . Move over Amar Chitra Katha. This gives new meaning to the genre of graphic novel
