The second issue of Comixense includes some very enjoyable stories.

The Adivasi will not Dance, an adaptation of an award-winning short story, fleshes out how a conflict of interest between the Santhal way of life and the government-corporate idea of development and progress stems from starkly different ways of interacting with the natural world. Playing with Bats is about an ordinary day in the life of the Ouamouno family, who live in a small village in the middle of the jungle in southern Guinea. The Irritability of Plants is an introduction to the legacy of J.C. Bose, a great Indian polymath whose discoveries on plants and other natural phenomena were way ahead of his time. In ‘Making It’ Isn’t Easy, an ordinary student learns from extraordinary beings hidden in plain sight. Under the Snake’s Belly is a prose piece that comes to terms with the true origins of the giant, concrete architecture that dominate our cities. Finally, in Roots, we travel to a tiny island in Tamil Nadu where a young boy reconnects with his roots, paving the way for a new way of life in the process of doing so.
