Mapui Kawlim led a fairly regular life; she was a 13 year old from Aizwa, Mizoram.  She hates Maths, loves a good hot fudge sundae and enjoys having sleepovers with her best friends, Fiona and Zobia. Not just that, Mapui also loves and adores her parents and shares an adorable relationship with them.

But, things took a turn when her father, Tashi Kawlim, an inventor, gave her some gizmos and a superhero suit.

The teenager Mapui thehn turns into the superhero WingStar.  Mapui’s mother, Khyati Kawlim, is a martial arts teacher and equips Mapui with physical skills that she can fall back upon when her suit isn’t with her.

Chandragupta Maurya

Chandragupta Maurya was the founder of the Mauryan empire. Born around 340 BCE, Chandragupta was the youngest of the Mauryas, who ruled from their capital in Pataliputra. Even as a child, he was an exceptional hunter and rider. During this time, most of northern India was part of the Magadha Empire, ruled by the Nandas. Southern India was divided into many independent territories.

What brought the Indian subcontinent under a single unified kingdom was Chandragupta Maurya’s reign, which lasted from 322 BCE to 298 BCE. The Mauryan dynasty would go on to have notable emperors, including Chandragupta’s son Bindusara and grandson, Emperor Ashoka. Read more

A Peek Into ACK’s Upcoming Title – Valmiki’s Ramayana

Valmiki Ramayana

Indian mythology has two of the grandest epics ever written – the Valmiki Ramayana and Vyasa’s Mahabharata. Both epics tell the story of human emotions, of love and loyalty, of courage and fortitude.

The Ramayana, which was written almost 5000 years ago, is not just a story. It is a treasure trove of information. We get to know stories not just about Hindu gods, but about the lives of the people in those times, about customs and traditions, and about their beliefs.

When Sugriva sends his vanara army to search for Sita he describes the four directions they have to take. Here is a peak into some of the places he sends them to.

(This page is from Amar Chitra Katha’s Valmiki’s Ramayana – the all-new 960-page special edition that is soon to be released.)
