Spurious Case Of A Political Cartoon

15 May

It has not been long since Mamata Banerjee , President of Trinamool Congress , the person who apparently holds key to UPA coalition in India , arrested Professor on charges of forwarding her cartoon to his friends via email . The latest row is related to cartoon depicted in NCERT book for 11th standard in schools projecting BR Ambedkar where he is being questioned for his slow pace of framing Constitution . At the outbreak of controversy , Government lost no time to apologize for the same and ordered review of all the cartoons in books .
Political cartoon which rely on exaggeration and sarcasm depicted in Graphics are highly unlikely to appease all the sections of society especially political class .

Above Image does not carry even an ounce of Exaggeration keeping in mind what is happening in country !

It is to be understood that it is not expected from cartoon to Eulogize leaders . They are supposed to be represent repercussions of decision taken by them . Cartoons have , are and will always be sarcastic . It is you Mr Leader , who needs to cultivate a Sense of Humor. It is more and more Democracy and tolerence which will cure existing ills of democracy (read dissent) and not Censorship . Our Economy is sliding down , Industrial growth is plummeting , Inflation is soaring , scams are siphoning the resources . And we are discussing whether cartoons are offensive or not . We will be Butt of Jokes in World if we do not get our priorities right.
