Do not spare Church leaders: Marthoma Church head tells cartoonists

Cartoonists have a way of seeing the world from different angles.


Philipose Mar Chrysostom, Senior Metropolitan of the Mar Thoma Church, said here that society would be better off if cartoons were made of political and Church leaders.

Cartoonists have a way of seeing the world from different angles, he said during an interactive session with cartoonists from different parts of India here on May 6.

The Senior Metropolitan had a brief interactive session with journalists and cartoonists at Rajendra Maidan before posing for the cartoonists.

Around a dozen cartoonists got to work and produced interesting caricatures of the Metropolitan, who said that the artists provided a glimpse into his own life as he thanked them for the effort.

The cartoonists then posed for photographs with the caricatures they made of the Senior Metropolitan, who is celebrating his 100th birthday this year.

The programme was organised as part of the ongoing Caritoon Kochi under the aegis of Kerala Cartoon Academy in collaboration with the Information and Public Relations Department, government of Kerala and Kerala Lalithakala Akademi. The programmes on Saturday included a cartoon and caricature exhibition as well as a media seminar on the theme ‘Line of Control to Cartooning’.
