Description

The session on "Caricature as Truth" was moderated by Mahrukh Inayet, senior broadcast journalist and former TV anchor. The panel comprised Sumit Kumar, cartoonist at Bakarmax; Eleri Mai Harris, cartoonist at The Nib; Manjul from Cartoon Communications; and Rachita Taneja, creator of Sanitary Panels. The session revolved around using cartoons to speak truth to power. The discussion began with the government crackdown on Manjul for his Twitter post and whether it came as a surprise, given his years of experience in this field.


Rachita elaborated on the government’s censoring of dissent in the context of the contempt case that was filed against her, while Sumit said his work is less reactive since it's based on political history rather than current events. Addressing the problems of litigations against artists in an authoritarian regime, Eleri stated that wherever power has increased in its attack on individuals, the support from the public has also risen.
