Our Incredible Cow/Ippadiyum Oru Pasu (Tamil)

Author : Mahasweta Devi

A hilarious true story of a cow with fierce eyes and a furious appetite, who chomps on textbooks, clothes and anything blue — till she gets a taste of ilish fish! Vivid photo collages are offset by light doodles in an unusual rendering.

​I don't think I've ever read anything quite like this book...

​A series of photo collages filled with common elements such as books, bottles, vegetables, fabrics, and other found objects accompany black and white sketches of this cow's unusual tastes... This book made me smile while also shaking my head in amazement at the creativity of the story and those images. Oh, my! Goodreads

Wonderful visual imagination

Ruchi Shah takes Nyadosh the cow to a surreal level, visualizing Nyadosh as one who becomes what she eats! Once you crack this code, you can only marvel at the designer's wonderful visual imagination and skill. Thinking about the life and times of the story's context (it was written in Bengali in the late 1960s) asks of the reader a pause for reflection. Many of its pages have an idea embedded within that can be drawn out, and yet the story as a whole leaves you thinking – incredible! Goodbooks.in
