RIP Anant Pai!

Anant Pai passed away today. Amar Chitra Katha and Tinkle won’t be the same without him, but they would carry his name for generations! Who can ever forget Ramu and Shamu, the mischievous twins. His books were the one that got me into reading English books! My cousin was a hoarder of his books and sis & I used to lose ourselves in those books every summer. Mr.Pai played and still plays a big part in getting children interested in mythology, history. We have a living proof, Utbt‘s Chula has been devouring husband’s large Amar Chitra Katha collection for the past few weeks like there is no tomorrow! Thank you and RIP Mr.Pai!
