Queer Ink Book Club : Kari by Amruta Patil

Kari, a graphic novel by Goa-based artist-writer Amruta Patil. It's very easy to fall in love with Kari, because her character is etched as a 'boatman' - a rescuer of lost souls - who'll guide them, hold their hands, listen and love, and want nothing in return.
