This year India had it's first Comic Con at Dilli Haat(in New Delhi, INDIA) for two days (19th and 20th Feb, 2011) and I also planned on second day of it !!! There were lot of things there in Comic-Con but I liked the part where lot of folks were roaming in special dress-ups of various Comic Characters !!! Check out some of the Comic Characters who were roaming on second day of Comic Con 2011 !!! Guess their Comic-names?
It was a fair for various publishing houses, including various known publications like Amar Chtra katha, Diamond Comics, Level 10, Manta Ray, Kshiraj Telang, Vimanika and much more new publications who are coming with various new comic Characters !!!
The very first Comic Con happened on the weekend for 2 days and there were lot of people with their children.. Even I saw many senior folks who were going to each stall to know about their ideas around comical charters and stories... There were many innovators who had some unique story-lines for upcoming comics !!! Many comic artists were conducting some workshops and there were lot of Animation companies showcasing their work...
There were several workshops, interactive sessions, interviews and speeches by various comic book artists, Animation Experts, Comic-Artists and writers. A few animation and multi-media productions had set up their stalls as well and also conducted seminars about animation design, creation and future of animation industry in India !!!
There were several comic fans, both adults and children.
On 20th Feb 2011, Uncle Pai who is a renowned educationalist and creator of Indian comics was presented a Lifetime Achievement Award by Cartoonist Pran, one of the most successful Indian cartoonists, best known as the creator of Chacha Chaudhary
While we were enjoying this evening at comic con, rain started and whole crowd in that crowd settled under those stalls at dilli haat !!! It started around 3:45 pm and conditions were worse towards 5:00 pm... I only spent 2 Hrs in this event and I missed little kids who were well dressed but went back home due to rains :(
I was really amazed to see lot of new comic publications with various new ideas for upcoming projects ! One of them was about comics which tell indian history or educate about basic details about Indian society & cultural values... It was great to see such stalls and this one was one of the crowded stall of comic con !! I think people realize that we are somehow loosing our basic values to get westernize...
