In "The Tale of the Talking Face", eminent Indian artist K.G. Subramanyan offers a stinging parable of democracy gone wrong by narrating and illustrating the story of a princess whose autocratic rule brought nothing but suffering to her people, despite her ambition of progress for her country. A thinly veiled satire on the political drama of 1970s India, "The Tale of the Talking Face" is a universal record of the ever-deepening crisis of democracy and the threat of totalitarianism.
