The Travelers of the Mind
Graphic Novelist and barn owl Sarnath Bannerjee talks about a special kind of traveler - the Traveler of the Mind who is "uncramped by expensive trans-continental flights or unfriendly immigration staff...who seldom travel in space and almost never in time"
The Owl City is witnessing the annual gathering of such travelers as they crawl out of their cozy niches for the Calcutta Book Fair. Some rue the days, shake their heads and mutter about corporate publishing houses encroaching over what is rightfully theirs and serving it up for the selfie-obsessed masses. Some - with characteristic nonchalance - find a neat little spot and loose themselves in a little journey of discovery.
This one is dedicated to those bibliophiles, book worms, travelers of the mind, and wandering explorers who live many lives and walk many paths and yearn for a world with more poetic justice.
The owl hopes this will make you make that trip, browse through stacks of books, immerse yourself and emerge with a priceless pearl that you can explore at leisure.
Until next time,
The Observant Owl.
