Indian By Choice: A Graphic Novel
Indian By Choice: A Graphic Novel
Description
From the Book

Indian by choice tackles the complex theme of identity it is a journey of self discovery through the myriad human relationships that help us see things in perspective and in context.

Written in the form of a graphic novel it tells the story of Mandy a second generation Indian born and brought up in Chicago. He is as American as they come hot dogs, French Fires, baseball and the love of all things American especially blonde. He is of course no different from his clones who are in several other parts of the world England and Australia the Netherlands and Canada. They blind with their surroundings by assimilating the culture of their adopted home and denying their Indian roots and heritage. In the case of the hero of our book he has even changed his name from Mandeep to Mandy!

He is required under duress to travel to India for a family wedding and despite his fears and his doubts his distaste and his abhorrence of all things Indian he finds himself drawn into a world that he was familiar with only though his relationship with his parents and sister. These had to do with strong and pervasive family ties and bonding. All this appeared to be so normal and natural in India. Through candid discussion he confronts his fears and ignorance about India. When it is time for him to leave he finds that there is much about India he simply did not know and a great deal he would like to know more. He increasingly reconciles with his suppressed identity. He willingly makes the choice of not denying his Indian roots. He is an Indian by choice.

Testimonials

I recieved my Mahavir pendant today. It is wonderful. I was recently in Delhi and as it was a spiritual trip visiting Jain temples in Rajasthan, Agra, Rishikesh and Delhi i did not have the opportunity to shop much. The pendant is beautiful and i shall treasure it. I have attached a picture of me in India. Your country and the people will always be in my heart.
Evelyn, Desoto, Texas.

It is always a great pleasure to return to Exotic India with its exquisit artwork, books and other items. As I said several times before, Exotic India is far more than a highly professional Indian online shop; it is in fact an excellent ambassador to the world for the splendour of Indian wisdom and spirituality. I wish a happy and successful New Year 2017 to Exotic India and its employees! You can be very proud of yourself!
Dr Michael Seeber (psychiatrist and psychotherapist, Essen/Germany)
My last order arrived in a reasonable amount of time, regarding the long way it had to take! I am glad to find this and some other ayurvedic remedy, as well as books and much other things at your online-store and I am looking forward to be your customer again, some time.
Andreas, Germany.
