New comic book on Dalai Lama launched

(, Aug09, 2013)  Veteran Indian journalist and long-time Tibet observer Mr Vijay Kranti on Aug 7 released at Dharamsala a comic book on the life of the 14th Dalai Lama, the current, authored by him. The comic, ‘Dalai Lama: The Soldier of Peace,’ is dedicated to “the 1.2 million Tibetans who died under Chinese occupation and towards the hard work of Tibet support groups all over the world.”

The comic follows the Dalai Lama’s story from the time of the search for his reincarnation, through the turbulence of the Chinese invasion and occupation of Tibet, his escape into exile, and his current phenomenal fame and appeal to the outside world. Tibetan artist Sonam Dhondup did the drawing.

“His message of peace, love and compassion is a global phenomena that is becoming all the more relevant in a world mired in serious humanitarian conflicts,” said Mr Vijay Kranti, justifying the publication of yet another work on the Dalai Lama.

Mr Vijay Kranti has written numerous major articles, reports and books on Tibet and the Dalai Lama; he has also held a number of photo exhibitions on Tibet both in India and abroad over a number of years.
