Jaideep Unudurti

Jaideep Unudurti writes on travel and popular culture and reviews books for The Hindu. He also writes scripts for podcasts and co-wrote the script Shadmayudh, a film on the history of chess which was awarded a development grant from the Centre National des Arts Plastiques, Paris. His Hyderabad: A Graphic Novel led to “Every City is a Story”—a city-centric graphic storytelling initiative encompassing various cities in India. His graphic novel Die Unterirdischen Städte (2020), with artist Fabian Stoltz, set in an underworld beneath the battlefields of World War I grew out of a cross-cultural collaboration supported by the City Senate of Hamburg and Goethe-Zentrum, Hyderabad.
