Small Cartoons Make Big Noise

Political Cartoons, occupying a tiny corner in newspapers, often make a loud noise. Read on to know more about them!

CULTART

Found in the tiny corner of your newspaper, the impact of political cartoons is not so tiny. In a few words and intelligible illustrations, they speak a lot. These political cartoons are integral to any newspaper. Though majorly seen as an entertainment break in a newspaper filled with serious affairs, they manage to provide commentary on the prevalent issues of the time. In an eye-catching, humorous, and satirical way, they engage with the audience on contemporary social and political happenings and analyze them without being overly harsh or critical.

These cartoons smoothly amalgamate the arenas of art and politics to give social and political commentary a refreshing perspective. In the words of Jonathan Burack,


Political cartoons are vivid primary sources that offer intriguing and entertaining insights into the public mood, the underlying cultural assumptions of an age, and attitudes toward key events or trends of the times.”

अलमारी में कैद बचपन!

This post is restricted to Hindi readers only. I tried translating it in English but it was losing it's essence. ------------- महीनों बाद घर वापिस जाना हुआ। अनजान सड़कों से गुज़रकर, फिर पुरानी गलियों पर आना हुआ। माँ ने पुरानी अलमारी को साफ़ करने को कहा। बेकार चीज़ों को फेंक, कीमती को जमाने को कहा।...
