// Orijit Sen

Orijit Sen, a graphic artist based in New Delhi, is widely regarded as the ‘godfather’ of Indian comics. His pioneering work, River of Stories, is considered to be India's first graphic novel.

// Aritra Sarkar

He is joined on stage by philosopher and technologist Aritra Sarkar, who has recently published Goliath of Shenzhen, a cautionary tale set in contemporary China exploring the limits of freedom.

This is the world's first dual-facing novel, told in both visual and prose formats where you can choose your reading experience.
