Pashmina by Nidhi Chanani (2017) is a graphic novel about a teenage girl trying to understand her mother and the help she receives through a magical pashmina. Priyanka Das wants to know about India and her mother's life before moving the United States. Her mother, however, refuses to answer her questions.
After experiencing India through the pashmina, making friends with spirits, her mother relents and lets her go. Priyanka's experience isn't what she expected but it's still enlightening. It also gives her a chance to pass on the pashmina to those who will benefit from it.
Pri's journey to India both via the pashmina and in person, puts the graphic novel on the Road Narrative Spectrum. Pri is one of a group of marginalized travelers (66). As the pashmina gives the wearer a full body experience of a different time, the destination is uhoria (CC). The route there is an offroad one (66).
