New Comic Book About His Holiness the Dalai Lama by Vijay Kranti


Photojournalist and Tibetologist Vijay Kranti has been associated with the Tibetan cause for more than 40 years. His latest work is a comic book for children titled Dalai Lama — The Soldier of Peace, based on the life of Tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai Lama.

Asked why he wrote the book by a reporter for the Tibet Sun, Kranti is quoted as saying, “Because we have such a wonderful leader and such a wonderful story to tell to the world. But most of our international audience has no time and patience to listen this story in a public gathering. This book will tell it to them in an entertaining manner.”

B-C-48, Shalimar Bagh West, Delhi, 110052  (according to a google search)

An Indian scholar, Vijay Kranti has published several books about Tibet. A collection of his stunning photographs (including several of HIs Holiness the Dalai Lama) is available on his website along with articles about the plight of the Tibetan people.

I found the book for sale on this website:http://www.timelessbooks.in/dalai-lama-the-soldier-of-peace.html, but it appears to only allow shipping within India. I didn’t have a chance to contact the company yet.
