How Tintin became Bengali: Understanding Translations as After-Work | French Studies Bulletin, Spring 2024 (under review)
Author: Shirshendu Mukhopodhyay
Publisher: Bee Books
Centered on and around Ramnavami, Exiled from Ayodhya is a memoir of a travelling journalist tracing the path the banished prince had taken with his wife and brother. As he ventures into the hinterlands of Uttar Pradesh, the author reflects on the various episodes of the epic and tries to equate them with his own travels. History, myth, and reality intermingle in this acerbic narrative wherein the author delves deep into the imageries and incidents of the epic to show the parallel between the three.
