The Amar Chitra Katha gallery of Bravehearts presents men and women who are known for their immense perseverance and indomitable courage. “ Tenzing Norgay is an inspirational figure, not just to mountaineers, but to everyone who believes in the strength of the human spirit. Our comic, which is based on his life, took almost a year to complete because of the research involved for the writer and the artist. It is a comic we are truly proud of” said Reena Puri, Editor of Amar Chitra Katha.
During the making of this book we received a lot of encouragement from Bachendri Pal, the first Indian woman to climb Everest ” said Reena Puri, Editor of Amar Chitra Katha, further adding that “In order to inspire such adventure and courage, Tenzing Norgay will surely be an exciting read.”
Speaking about the digital plans for ACK Media, Shubhadeep Bhattacharya, Business Head–Digital said “We aim to give our titles a wider readership through digital versions of our comics. We have our latest comic titles available on Apple’s app store and on Amazon’s Kindle store. We will also be launching a store front app by April, making the whole range of ACK comics accessible on Apple and Android tablets”.
Amar Chitra Katha digital comic book on Tenzing Norgay is a 32 page, full colour, all new title that narrates the story of the adventurous Tenzing Norgay from Tibet. Tenzing Norgay was born to a very humble Tibetan couple while they were on a pilgrimage to a monastery in the Himalayas. Towering in the background was Chomolungma, or Everest, the tallest mountain in the world. The mountain was to cast a spell on the little child and give direction to his life. For as he grew up in its shadow, Tenzing often looked up and wondered if he would ever be able to climb to the top. His obsession with the mountain took him to Darjeeling and then through many adventures and expeditions, till he met the man with whom Everest could become a reality – Edmund Hillary. Amar Chitra Katha traces the story of one, who after having stood on the summit of Everest, could only feel humility and gratitude to the great mountain.
ACK Media’s Tenzing Norgay App has been developed in house and presents a new reading experience using panel by panel view technology. The Digital comic is also available on the Amazon Kindle store.
