Thus, the statement negates the plausibility of any flaws in History as its premises is myth which engages the reader, mostly children of the Indian middle class, into the world of enduring heroic chronic evolution of the figures. The creation of roots or the growth of the story tree, transparently tries to fill any voids or questions in readers mind as inevitable in construction of that myth.

Thus the narration follows a pedagogic path instead, thus, neglecting the data accounts. The egalitarian value system of the vedic past is prominent in shaping the family which is patriarchal and hegemonic in aspirations.

The societal insecurities are shown to be fought with the enduring heroism of the background family members. Religion here plays great role as it interweaves the twin axes of materialism and spirituality in context of urbanized Indian Middle class on a global arena. There is a sense of exemplary modernity which, for its attainment, requires a lot of sacrifices.

The sheer normalcy of caste Hinduism in those times is passively endured by Bhim, during all courses of his life. His family too is passive to any oppression by caste Hindus. The vocabulary used in Amar Chitra Katha expands into philosophical, religious and ideological texts narrating the engaging stories of heroism, courage and sacrifice which the little Bhim is shown to have taken while growing up. The subjectivity of words like destiny, depressed community, righteousness illustrated through acts of sacrifice and endurance to attain a respectable position in the society, creates an ideal Hindu world based on sacrifices.

In comparing the narratives of Chinmayananda and B. Ambedkar, there is similarity in context with family value system. For instance, Citataion: With words as his tools, Swamiji worked for 42 years to rebuild India, heart by heart, soul by soul and carry the ancient teachings of the Vedas to humanity at large throughout the world.

He, through his work tried to show, modernity and spirituality go hand in hand in construction of an ideal individual rooted in his traditions of family, love and sacrifice, yet modern in his outlook. He took Sanskrit scriptures and translated them in English to teach the English-speaking middle class youth, the sense of spirituality of Body, mind and soul.

In narration of idea of vision, there is a certain emphasis on ideological constraint adhering to nation-building and community-building.

In his retirement days, JP opposed the right wing parties on consolidation of community. Such accounts of history create an unsettled explanation of the narration and become redundant with structures indulging individual sensitiveness. The importance of this expression lies in the influence of certain helping verbs used in constructing a statement for episodic characters in ACK.

These chronological statements which connect a certain discontinuity in history, are often outcomes of lack of critical attention to the discrimination inherent in many texts.

These episodic character which appear in an important phase of life of the protagonist character, have no mention of their influence and role in building a vision. These characters are, in their portrayal, ideal representation of stereotypical socio-cultural institutions like father, mother, sister s , and friends with different religious-caste background.

The individuality of these characters is often lost in trying to fill certain institutional myths, which are structural in their construct, surrounding the life of the iconised. The stricture narration of the text, in accordance with institutional structures, often cuts down the historical magnitude of the character overshadowed. This sensitization of imagination is restricted to the ideological structures of nation-building, family-building, and state-building.

These building plots of story expand the magnitude of the protagonist character and widen the mythical environment away from the vision. The figure of naxalite merges with that of dacoit, both shadows from the margin, symbolize unrest which lacks critical representation left to the curiosity of the reader. The binding of similar marginalized communities together is expressive of nation-family metaphor, often restricting the subaltern potential of subterranean social movements to revolts.

In its narrative, Amar Chitra Katha characters are sketched through a patriarchal lens, adhering to the modern development of certain socioeconomic and cultural institutions. The ideological framework behind the evolution of ACK characters reflects hegemonic cultural politics in this refashioned narration of history.

The portrayal of masculinity of bourgeois individuals working towards a modern nation-building has been a common phenomenon within the analysed texts. These teachings of modernity grounded in religious roots are a basic emphasis of ACK icons.

The mythical charm of this gaze separates the individual from his peer. The similarity in construction of frames across icons of the visionary theme can be seen during the childhood phase of life of the protagonist.

These questions are grounded on religious and moral inquisitiveness rather than a thought passing by stumbled upon. Amar Chitra Katha emphasizes, in its narration, the importance of education focused around languages like English, Sanskrit. The influence of education continues to shape the ideology of the icon under construction in his teenage years.

The parallel quest to national roots maintains the unrest and curiosity in the character and takes him to foreign. The individual educated Indian, masculine in its portrayal, stands against the oppressive ruling state in an intellectual fight of morals. The sense of achievement with personal struggle and hardship, unconditioned of caste, religion and gender, remains the concrete personality trait of the protagonist. These myths surrounded by politics of cultural representation, often, articulated on religious and socioeconomic grammar.

The open- modern outlook of the educated individual protagonist, often aware of the different cultural communities, protective towards its own, finds a bourgeois association with the reader. The masculine unrest of the protagonist carves into broad shoulders with responsibility revolution and a humble gaze teaching the young literate Indians in India and abroad. As his unique and unyielding selfhood unravels, there is a moral consolidation of the category of citizenship to exclusion of all the other categories caste, community or gender , making him a leader in society.

In the last years of his life, icon emerges as a father figure for the modern Indian with his ideology rooted in religious, cultural and traditional routes. The woman is depicted as an object, whose role is restricted within the framework of socioeconomic structures.

The religious humility of her personality and almost every word of hers comes as a mere reply to the men and children of the family, makes the ACK mother, an epitome of sacrifice and sufferings for the success of men.

In some instances, if the mother passes away, then another motherly figure is given the responsibility of raising the children in an environment which balances traditional-modern ways of living.

The patriarchal family structure remains the dominant narrative of Amar Chitra Katha. No one could replace his own mother.

But at Poothampali house, he and his sisters received abundant love and affection from their aunt. Little Balu: Kochu Amma! Why are you putting that paste on Kanakam? Kochu Amma: This Vayambu paste will , make her complexion smooth and clear.

Thus, woman, as mother, always takes a sacrificial role for the success of the individual and the patriarchal family. One of the interesting points to be viewed is that, mother is always sketched around the presence of man or children. The individuality of mother, even though she sacrifices for her own loved-ones, is deprived by the male dominated narration of the story.

A girl, from the beginning has to take care of her looks, as the mother looks after her complexion and takes care of the feminine demeanor in terms of loks and appearance. Neatly combed, with an innocent humility on her face, girl sister is generally present in traditional practices within the framework of traditional middle class family.

Her passive participation in vital historical events just makes her an odd appearance in regards of struggle and femininity of the character sketch is representative of the authority of husband, Jayprakash.

Many historical figures have been remarried. BR Ambedkar happens to be one. The incidence of remarriage, compelled him to try and run away from house, but due to financial constraints of his family, he resolute to morally earn money.

Sharda Kabir and they married. The personality of Doctor educated and independent lacks critical narration and tells nothing about her role. Later in the comic, she is seen in just one frame with BR Ambedkar embracing Buddhism. Personality of women is restricted to religious and traditional realms within the family the home and sometimes the society community relations. The contrasting portrayal of gender personalities through the hegemonic-chauvinistic ideological lens deprives the women of Amar Chitra Katha, the deserved attention in their portrayal.

ACK, in its branding might come across as visual literature of history for children, but, in its communication it entails cultural politics.

The address to the younger generation in comics also tries to educate them beahavioural aspects of pan-India culture based on religion, myth, caste and gender. The study of Amar Chitra Katha as cases of events documented in visual form creates a mystical Indian-ness even while the text remains in English. Anant Pai, creator of Amar Chitra Katha in his life-time was influenced by right-wing politics.

His outlook on modern India echoes in the narrative discourse under analysis. The saffronisation of education, a mix of religion and literature. Swami Chinmayananda, a global spiritual Hindu leader, for example, was a great believer in educating the youth.

Anant Pai not only was the editor, but friend of many visionaries of Amar Chitra Katha. The hegemonic ways of addressing the diversities which India is known for, has been a subject of the comics on our history. The following ideas come out of the analysis of ACK comics as cases: They are neither fictional nor factual, but interweave different place in times in due course of history centered on a protagonist across many cultural themes.

In visionaries, especially, the loci, the visionary more than anyone anywhere. The whole narration conspires in a single mission of leading a righteous life with moral integrity within their structures of nation, family and community with which a rooted association is linked.

There are names of theologists and various scriptures which are structural in their origin and glorify a race than a human. The masculinity of the characters goes hand in hand with the ethics bourgeois individual.

The education of women or their depiction in four-front role misses in Amar Chitra Katha which was not the case in reality. The scope of the study limits itself to the text in Amar Chitra Katha and the factual historic events, in trying to explore the narrative essence of the comics.

The limitations of secondary research disable the exploration to get into deeper understanding behind the cultural politics of Amar Chitra Katha The themes which have come out in the findings, can be broadened to focus on logic behind such interpretations and representations.

The study provides a foundation for the analysis of visual text and it can be taken as a ground secondary research for much more in-depth content analysis and iconography. Kalighat Paintings. Barthes, R. Baru, S.
