First cartoon by Sivabalan Muthu for Swarna Bharat Party

Sivabalan Muthu is a creative cartoonist, and a few days ago offered to make cartoons for SBP.

Here is his first one (I’ve added the slogan and SBP logo):

    It’s great that we’re getting a wider range of content from more people, for now. But I would always say that we need to regulate content to at least ensure that it falls in line with the founding principles of the party.

    The fact that a contribution’s been made is great. However, cheap mud-slinging would hardly help us stand out, sadly that’s what this cartoon does.

    It tells the reader to join us because of Modi’s “lies, slogans” (While I would dispute his “lies and slogans”, Modi really had made some solid institutional changes actually). We need to tell them WHAT we stand for, and WHY it is a BETTER choice than what we have currently.

    Not mere baseless admonishment of the current government, and then a plea to the reader to join us. It really does convey nothing, in my view.

    We need to up quality.

    By all means provide ideas for the cartoons – I’m sure Sivabalan will work on those ideas.

    I have a simple rule in life – ONE tiny micromilligram of effort is worth far more than TEN TRILLION TONS of talk.

    And re: Modi’s “institutional changes” – look, Raj, this is not a place for jokes. Modi and reform? Poles apart.

    I have seen many wonderful creative works of SivaBalan. But still this one amazes me. His creative works always capture what’s happening in the society and clearly depicts in a way which can be easily understood by any type of person.
