After working as a commercial artist at Life Insurance Corporation for 31 years, Prabakar Raobail, felt it was time to settle down to his true passion which was cartooning. Inspired by Mario Miranda, Raobail contributed loads of cartoons, caricatures and paintings to many popular publications around the country. Currently, The Indian Institute of Cartoonists, is holding an exhibition of his popular and favourite cartoons over a span of 25 years.

Looking through his work, Roabail turned nostalgic as each cartoon strip had a story behind it, “I always see the lighter side of things and produce it on paper. At times, it hurt some people’s sentiments but most of the time, they saw the pun behind it and laughed with it,” says Roabail. Noted poet H S Venkateshmurthy and humour writer Belur Ramamurthy were present to support Roabail at the inauguration, “A cartoon is an art where the humour is hidden between the combination of white space and crooked lines, and it is this fact that has always drawn me towards Roa’s cartoons,” says Venkateshmurthy. Roabail put in a lot of his time and effort in his Maddening Crowd series. One of his sketches shows a crowd working for a VIP, and there are almost 10,000 miniature figures in it. “It took me weeks as my main aim behind the series was to bring out the emotion and the moods of the crowds,” says Raobail, who adds that even after his retirement he has been quite busy exhibiting his works all over the world, “Like art for art sake, the only thing I would want to do now is to continue making cartoons for cartoon sake,” he concludes. The exhibition is on till October 25.   For details call 25595252.
