Priya’s Shakti’, India’s first Augmented Reality comic book, was launched at Mumbai Comicon 2014 June 2015. The comic book tells the story of Priya, a villager from India who is gang raped by men in her village. With the aim of raising awareness of the evil of rape and to bring about a change in the way rape victims are treated, a pilot scheme of distributing the comic boks to rural schools has subsequently begun in India.
For the Origins Season, and the upcoming Internation Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women, join us as we discuss the work and ideas behind the comic book with Ram Devineni, a co-creater of ‘Priya’s Shakti’.
