About 10 years ago in his graphic novel Corridor, Sarnath Banerjee developed the character of Brighu – a restless investigator of the ordinary in the tradition of Fernando Pessoa, Charles Baudelaire and Khalifa Harun al-Rashid. Brighu has recently been brought back from his Rambo-like seclusion to feature in a series of image- and text-based essays on the enchanted geography of Berlin, which is poised to become the next big Welstadt: a world city of great economic, political and cultural influence.

Sarnath Banerjee studied Biochemistry and still harbours a faint desire to produce a graphic version of Darwin’s The Origin of Species. He is the author of the graphic novels Corridor, The Barn Owl’s Wondrous Capers and The Harappa Files.
