What I remember most about Amar Chitra Katha is not the stories per se, but how Dad would read them for me. There was something inimitable about the way he would narrate that would captivate my imagination. Later, I would read the issues independently, but the magic just wasn't there.

How did you then turn into an atheist? First, Amar Chitra Katha and now this. Man you are a renegade.

How does reading Amar Chitra Katha contradict my being an atheist? I simply can't find the correlation.
BTW, there's nothing wrong in being fascinated by mythology.

A thought

Universal literacy has still not been achieved. Far too few people can read. On the other hand, thanks to the near-ubiquity of the Internet...
