Comixense is a comics quarterly aimed primarily at teenagers between 12 and 17 years old, launched in April 2021. The magazine touches upon all aspects of life that young people in India encounter today – presented in a manner that credits their intelligence, imagination, and empathy.
Each issue of the magazine will contain a bunch of stories related to a broad theme. The current issue follows journeys both physical and metaphysical through the stories listed below.
In this issue, read about an arduous passage two brothers are forced to take through the mountains of Kashmir to Gilgit in Suffernama; a forest ranger’s quest to rescue a group of teenagers lost deep in the woods of Russia (or is it Ukraine?) in Into the Woods; a young Polish immigrant in the UK as she faces the challenges of being a foreigner in a faraway land in Take Me Home; a trader of Arab descent who discovers great food – and a sense of home! – along the Silk Route in The Travelling Thread; and the incredible winter migration of demoiselle cranes from their breeding grounds in Mongolia to a welcoming village in Gujarat in Padharo Mhare Des.
QUIZZES AND GAMES
The railways in India have a lot of superlatives attached to them – oldest, highest, longest, most beautiful. Travelling by rail is an experience packed with incident (admittedly, not always pleasant). It will always hold a certain charm, in the face of all change, not least because of the many points of attraction that are attached to it. We have tried and captured some of those in this piece which includes quiz questions that you can have a go at.
