FROM AN (IM) MOBILE LAND: INSCRIBING THE (POSTCOLONIAL) OTHER IN MALIK SAJADíS MUNNU- A BOY FROM KASHMIR

AKHILA NARAYANAN.

Abstract
Kashmir has often figured in the popular imagination either as a fantastical setting or as a breeding ground of terrorism. Notably, the native Kashmiri ďbodyĒ is insubordination or absent from most of these popular representations. Itís against this material effacement of Kashmiri body in mainstream visual representations that this paper reads Malik Sajadís autobiographical graphic narrative Munnu Ė A Boy from Kashmir (2015) as making a discursive intervention. Sajadís graphic tale of an ordinary boy from Kashmir growing up to become a cartoonist, in the adverse political climate of the 90ís in the region, offers a counter-discourse by inscribing the body into the landscape, thereby infusing representation with materiality. However, this reclaiming as proposed by Kabir (2009), is far from celebratory as the Kashmiri body in the landscape is one in pain, scarred by violence. By embodying the authorís personal and the collective trauma of surviving in a "conflict zoneĒ on to a visual medium, Sajad pushes against the discourse of the unspeakable and the unimaginable by taking what Chute (2016) refers to as the ďrisk of representation.Ē

Key words: graphic narrative, Kashmir, (postcolonial) other
