Reportagen, is an independent magazine which commissions writers to report on social issues which are researched on site and in person by the protagonists, often off the beaten track.
A Literature / collaborative project 2016, initiated by the Literature Department of Pro Helvetia Zurich, Reportagen invited Swiss author David Collin and Indian writer Samrat Choudhury and illustrator Anindya Roy to collaborate and write for the upcoming issues.
As part of Phase I, David Collin was in India to carry out a combined research with Samrat Choudhury and Anindya Roy. The trio travelled to Shillong in Meghalaya, a state in East India to explore and research.
In the second phase of the project, Samrat and Anindya travelled to Geneva to work on a story to be published in a future issue of Reportagen.
