The constantly looming threat of a water crisis that triggers a war comes alive in Sarnath Banerjee’s new graphic novel, All Quiet in Vikaspuri. Meanwhile, there’s a strange vertical journey in search of a mythical river that supposedly flows beneath the surface of the earth.

The story begins in the industrial township of Tambapur, once flourishing, but now fallen on bad days in the wake of corporate greed gone out of control. Girish, the plumber, is forced to leave the decaying township and travel to Delhi, one of the millions of migrants who have drifted to the metropolis in search of a livelihood.
