the amazing creations

it would be unjust, ignorant and subjective to say that there are no genuine cartoon character creators in india. being such a populace, it would be almost impossible to not have a genuine world-class cartoonist within us. but i wonder why are there not many wonders like the common indian of rk laxman. is it because we as sub-standard prejudiced readers can't appreciate or demand genuine stuff? i don't know of chinese [although everybody is aware of what rage japanese manga is] or danish cartoonists who created immortal characters but we do know of those [presumably] americans such as bill waterson who created calvin and hobbes, freg wagner created lyle and eugene of animal crackers, garfield by jim davis and many others and love a lot many of them.

India is coming up into animation and cartooning big time now, especially with institutes cropping up all over the place that create more awareness in this field..

i don't think there are any more institutes that teach cartooning than there were earlier

u learn designing at grassroots level and comprehensively like you do in NID, i feel places like arena and all are fluke

NID probably is the only institute that teaches you design but homour and skills cannot be taught that are the key factors of cartooning..
Arena and such teach you multimedia and do a bad job out of it..
