'This page is part of a larger comic book I am working on based on Mahashweta Devi's short story for children titled 'Chittu'. Chittu is a 12 year old 'Ho' boy (tribal community belonging to present day region of Jharkhand and Orrissa) but that is not the only description he goes by in the story. Sometimes Chittu is an otter, sometimes a tiger, an owl, or even a stone.Since the third call was about children's games and the possibility of playful yet powerful re imaginings of the world through them I felt that Chittu's 'tricks' in the story which upset the narrator's rational world view would be fit subject for this call.'
