The Interesting Story of Cartoon Character, PRince

The Interesting Story of Cartoon Character, PRince
Cartoon Character PRince
The cute little cartoon character, PRince has been adding value and humour to your ezine, PreSense for the past five years.  He has been conveying powerful messages with a sense of humour.  The creation and the journey of PRince is interesting and amazing. 

Triambak Sharma, Cartoonist
Triambak Sharma
In July 2008, on Dr Abdul Kalam’s suggestion, the editorial team decided to introduce cartoons in the ezine.  When we made an announcement to the effect in the PrPoint group, Mr Triambak Sharma, a well-known cartoonist from Raipur and the editor of Cartoonwatch volunteered to provide cartoons for the ezine every month.  Instead of publishing regular assorted cartoons, the editorial team decided on a cartoon character, on the lines of R K Laxman’s ‘Comman Man’, to convey the message. 

Announcement in the prpoint group

On 3rd July 2008, the editorial team made an announcement about its idea, in the groups, and invited suggestions from the members, and also a suitable name for the character.  The team received an overwhelming response of 100 suggested names.  The suggestion given by Ms Uma, a communication professional to name the character ‘PRince’ received unanimous approval of the editorial team. ‘Prince’ was introduced to the groups on 10th July 2008. 

“I wanted PRince to be the youth icon of this 21st century, as a representative of the professionals working in corporate and other offices.  Hence, I created him as an energetic young person a wearing trendy outfit with necktie.  I am proud that PRince was born in Raipur”, says Triambak Sharma proudly. 

Dr Abdul Kalam launching cartoon character
The first cartoon, created by Triambak Sharma, was launched by Dr Abdul Kalam himself with his autograph, on 24th July 2008 at Rajbhavan, Chennai. The cartoon character was created and launched within 20 days of the editorial team’s decision to include the cartoon in the ezine.

Every edition of the ezine from July 2008 onwards contains the PRince cartoon.  In every issue, PRince conveyed a powerful message with a sense of humour.  Thus, PRince won itself many fans.  PRince became popular worldwide.

In April 2010, The Wall Street Journal of America, carried one of the PRince cartoons with the permission of Triambak Sharma.

The popularity of PRince grew day by day, both nationally and internationally.

In May 2010, a CD containing the PRince cartoons was released on the occasion of the launch of the Golden Jubilee edition (50th) of ezine. it was also displayed on the internet.

PRince who was a Casanova till then, married his sweetheart ‘PRincess’ in the Diamond Jubilee 60th edition, published in February 2011 (picture on the right). “Only married people can understand the problems of the common person and communicate in a mature manner.  Subsequent to his marriage, PRince started talking about many serious issues affecting the common citizen”, says Triambak Sharma when asked why PRince married hastily.  The readers could notice that after the 61st edition, PRince conveyed more serious messages than what he used to, before his marriage.

Interestingly, Dr A P J Abdul Kalam himself is one of the great fans of PRince. While addressing the Cartoon Festival at New Delhi on 29th April 2011, Dr Abdul Kalam suggested that cartoonists should be remembered for creating cartoon characters like ‘Common Man’ and ‘PRince’.

In the  Cartoon Festival organised at Raipur (Chhattisgarh) on 29th June 2013,  Dr Raman Singh, the Chief Minister of Chhattisgarh was the Chief Guest.  A video poresentation on the cartoon character PRince was shown to the Hon’ble Chief Minister and to the audience.  A CD containing the past 55 cartoons published in the ezine from July 2008 to June 2013 was also handed over to Dr Raman Singh, the Chief Minister by Triambak Sharma.  The Chief Minister highly appreciated the concept of cartoon character and enjoyed the PRince cartoons.

Journey of PRince (cartoon character) - July 08 to April 10

When the ezine was celebrating the Second Anniversary in Feb 08, Mr T S Krishnamoorthy (Former Chief Election Commissioner of India) suggested to include cartoon section in the ezine.  Within few weeks, we had the opportunity of listening to Dr Abdul Kalam, who appealed to all media to use more of cartoons, to bring cheers on the face of readers.
The Editorial Team decided to introduce cartoons every month and circulated the information.  We wanted to create an unique 'cartoon character' like 'common man' of R K Lakshman. .  Based on the suggestions of one of our members, we named  the cartoon character as 'PRince'.
Mr Triambak Sharma, Editor, Cartoon Watch  (photo) and one of the well known cartoonists of  India created the character PRince.  PRince was launched by Dr Abdul Kalam himself in July 2008 with his autograph.  From that day, PRince also joined our team and started his journey.   Every month, we carry one cartoon of PRince drawn by Mr Triambak Sharama.  
Please enjoy the PRince cartoons published by us from July 08 to April 10 in the ezine.

Dec 08 - Cartoon is a global language - A great communication tool

Cartoons are great communication tool and they do not have any language. Word-less cartoon is a global language. December 2008 issue of ezine PR-e-Sense deals with the effectiveness of the cartoons.

This issue is guest edited by Mr Triambak Sharma, Editor of Cartoon Watch, the only cartoon magazine published in India from Raipur. In an exclusive podcast interview, he explains as to how cartoons can be great communication tool for any corporates.

In this issue, we bring out a case study of a cartoon published in one of the leading Tamil weekly Ananda Vikatan angered the politicians leading to the arrest of the Editor of the magazine, who was later released due to the agitation by the media at global level.

A simple cartoon can communicate more effectively than ten thosuand words. That is why, it angers the politicians also.
