A graphic novel portraying the life of Mahatma Gandhi was launched in the capital Thursday by his grandson Rajmohan Gandhi.
Graphic novels combine the characteristics of novels and comics.
"Gandhi: My life is a message" was written by Jason Quinn. The artwork was done by Sachin Nagar and the book is published by Campfire graphic novels.
The book, a collection that illustrates Gandhi's life with little anecdotes from his childhood right through to the moment of his assassination, has graphics, sketches and text.
"Gandhi is so legendary that you really have to tell his story just right. This was one of the most difficult writing assignments I have ever worked on," said Jason Quinn, who has written a similar graphic biography of Apple founder Steve Jobs.
Congratulating the author, Rajmohan Gandhi said: "This book will take Gandhi's life and message to a large number of youngsters across the world in an enjoyable format".
