Amruta Patilintroduced by Namita Gokhale

 

Writer and artist Amruta Patil is a ground-breaking graphic novelist with a distinct visual style. Her recent work, Sauptik: Blood and Flowers, the second part of her Mahabharata duology, is a vividly illustrated retelling from the perspective of an unlikely narrator, the wounded immortal Ashwatthama. In a freewheeling solo session, she speaks of the subversive and transformative potential of the ancient myths and epics she retells.
