Digital comics launched for Aakash tablets
Img/2012/1/23/tabi.jpgNew Delhi: Indian Army Chief V K Singh today launched the digital version of Indian War Comics (IWC), which will be available for users of upcoming version of Aakash tablet PC to be supplied by Datawind.



"This particular idea itself is not only laudable, but I think each one of us must realise that there is something which will make tremendous difference," Army Chief V K Singh said while releasing digital version of comics.



Singh launched digital version of comics on Param Vir Chakra winner Bana Singh, Captain Vikram Batra and Mumbai 26/11 war hero Major Sandeep Unnikrishnan `Ashok Chakra`.



He added that the idea is to inspire children.



"Those of you who have been lucky to read the Amar Chitra Katha and know what it did to you, to know your own history, I think these war comics are going to make a fantastic difference. Specially when they are loaded on to the Akash tablet," he said.



These digital version of comics will be available free of cost on Aakash and Ubislate Tablets of Datawind.



"We will put these comics on both Aakash and Ubislate tablets," Datawind CEO Sunit Singh Tuli said.
The print version of these comics are available in the open market through Om Books and Westland.



Promoter of IWC and a Merchant Navy officer Aditya Bakshi said he will launch hindi version of these comics in next four months and later a copy in mother-tongue of war heros will be launched.
