By combining image and word to tell stories that range from urgent contemporary narratives to more exploratory historical perspectives to simply the extraordinary lives of ordinary people, First Hand: Volume 1 offers new worlds through which we can re-enter our own. Whether it be reporting the murder of an RTI applicant, or an account of the Gujarat riots, or a biography of Begum Akhtar, or a narrative about becoming familiar with one’s city through the use of its public transport system, each comic tells the story of an Indian reality, bringing alive what has only been encountered in word till now, visually.
The anthology, which has been developed using both primary and secondary research, will leave readers with a sense of how government policy and programmes affect the everyday life of people, as well as the complex and varied forms that exclusion can take, specifically, themes like health, water and sanitation, women and work, communal and ethnic violence, amongst others. In holding up a mirror to our times, this timely volume ends with narratives about two communities that have become the unsung survivors of exclusion in our country: the Devadasis, and the Jarawas of the Andamans.
