Tinkle is a monthly English-language comics magazine for children and for the young-at-heart. Home to popular evergreen toons such as the ever-unemployed goof Suppandi, the hunter-turned-conservationist Shikari Shambu, the power-hungry vizier Tantri the Mantri, and the witty do-gooder Kalia the Crow, Tinkle has had a story for everyone for the last 35 years. Comics, being a visually appealing medium, is the best way to introduce children to reading. Tinkle makes sure that it showcases stories across all genres—from humour to social drama to adventure and fantasy—to ensure that each reader finds something interesting, that will lead them to explore more books of that genre. Tinkle's latest venture into the superhero-action genre, the series WingStar, has garnered much praise across the country. A 2013 study conducted by a research team at the University of Oklahoma shows that comics help in better memory retention. Mr. Anant Pai and Mr. Subba Rao, guessed this secret in 1980, and founded Tinkle. Since then, the magazine has stayed true to its tagline, 'Where Learning Meets Fun'. Besides captivating stories, it boasts a vast repertoire of informative features, analytical and visual puzzles, vocabulary building games, and fun-based science columns that are not only great knowledge boosters but also tremendous help during school projects**. Tinkle also nurtures the creativity and individuality of its readers by publishing their stories, poems, artwork and opinions in the magazine. In fact, in the recent 35th Anniversary issue, almost all the stories were sourced from the readers!  Awards and Accolades: India’s only All-Comics Magazine for Children – Limca Book of Records Winner of Best Publication for Children Award – Comic Con India Recognition for Special Contribution to Indian Comics over 30 years – Comic Con India (Home to) The 'Best Continuing Graphic Series', Dental Diaries, the comically horrifying saga of a fangless vampire – Comic Con India **As per reader feedback
