Humour might be the best medicine but it also one of the primary tools of presenting a critique of society. Political cartooning does not only provide a commentary on recent events but also throws lights on the issues plaguing the society.
But according to E.P Unny, the Chief Political Cartoonist, Indian Express Group, political cartooning is losing visibility in the public sphere and is on the verge of disappearance.
Speaking at a panel discussion on the future of political cartooning in India, at the Asian College of Journalism, here on Monday, Unny said “Over the years political cartooning has gradually been losing space in newspapers. If political cartooning disappears then people will stop reading newspapers.”
