Cartoonists from across India to exhibit political satires at ‘Rajkiya Fatkare’ in Nagpur

Cartoonists from various parts of India would be exhibiting their political satires at Rajkiya Fatkare in Nagpur from December 11 to 13, 2017. The exhibition would be held at Raja Ravi Varma Art Gallery, South Central Zone Cultural Centre (SCZCC) at Civil Lines in Nagpur. The exhibition, which is organised by Vidarbha Cartoonist Association, Artistter and Lalitya Foundation, would be inaugurated by Shreehari Aney at 5:30 pm on December 11 at the aforesaid venue.

When Nation Next, the media partner for ‘Rajkiya Fatkare,’ spoke to Sanjay More of Vidarbha Cartoonist Association, he said, “We also do exhibitions that revolve around social awareness. But this time, it’s about politics.”

 

When asked if the theme ‘political punches’ coincides with the arrival of winter session that also starts from December 11, he said, “No, it’s not actually a coincidence. We’ve deliberately chosen topics that target farmers’ suicides, problems of Vidarbha, Maharashtra politics, national politics, etc. because of winter session. So, political big shots too can grace our event. Moreover, we have artists from across India like Jammu, Madhya Pradesh, Delhi, Calcutta, Maharashtra, etc. So, it’s going to be an interesting event.”

He further said,”We wanted Aneyji, who’s the founder of Vidarbha Rajya Aghadi (ViRA), to inaugurate the exhibition because he’s been actively involved in Vidarbha.

Prasad Pimprikar, founder of Lalitya Foundation and COO of Artistter India, said, “We expect a huge response as more than 50 cartoonists have presented their cartoons on Vidarbha issues and current political scenario in Maharashtra. We all organisers including Sanjay More, Umesh Charole and our extended team have worked extremely hard to bring to notice the current problems in front of our leaders through such initiatives.” 

Pimprikar, who has been actively involved in organising the event, concluded by saying, I’m glad Shreehari Aney is inaugurating the exhibition. Attadeep Ramteke, Sanjay Tiwari, Sandesh Singalkar along with others would also be attending the event.
