Tribute to Uncle Pai

This is  a very sad news that Uncle Pai is no more with us . He needs no introduction . Most of book & comic lovers know his name very well . He  was associated with so many publications but mostly his contribution to the world of Amar Chitra Katha as well Tinkle was totally unmatched . It is doubtful if any other publication is making as much popularity as well sales in India as well in the world & still continuing till date .

We sadly mourn this great loss to the comic world . 

Just to pay our tribute here some comics for which he devoted his entire life are posted . These have been posted but again posting .

A great loss indeed :-( His "preface" to the first Tinkle (that you have posted here) gives us an idea of his love for children and his immense contribution !

BTW, thanks for the lovely comics as always. I did not have this version of Krishna, only the other version (available on the web, which I like more); the illustrations in this version are superb ! Does anyone have the third version as well (see

Parishi & Ajay,

One query for all of us.

The ACK posted here is numbered as 11, but the no.11 (first ACK on Indian subjects) was Krishna has different story line as pointed out by Sridhar (also the link is provided.

Can some body help?
