Edited by Alka Singh. Filmed by Alka Singh and Bharath Murthy. A 2008 video documentation done as a result of a grant given to Bharath Murthy by the India Foundation of the Arts, under their Extended Arts Research program. It features some of the key people involved in Indian comics from the 1960s onwards; Anant Pai, Aabid Surti, Toms, Dheeraj Varma, Jeevan Kang and a few others. This is not a representative selection, as can be seen from the fact that there are no women comics artists interviewed. It also contains excerpts of a panel discussion on Indian comics held at the International Book Fair, New Delhi, in 2008 moderated by Shuddhabrata Sengupta. Speakers included are V.K Karthika (publisher), Sarnath Banerjee, Orijit Sen, Kshitish Padhy.

Anant Pai died in 2011, and Toms (V.T.Thomas), died in 2016.

This video documentation was only one part of the survey. The other was the writing of an essay by Bharath Murthy, published later in Marg magazine. It can be read here - https://www.scribd.com/doc/26674355/An- ... omics-2008
