K S Pilla

The Kerala Cartoon Academy has scored a half century in ONLINE EXHIBITION with this sterling post on the unforgettable works of the doyen of political cartoons of the yester years, late KS PILLA.  Interestingly, he held the enviable distinction of contributing his creations simultaneously to two rival newspapers of the times- Desabandhu and Malayala Manorama, both from Kottayam, the literary capital of Kerala. He was Guru to many cartoonists including  cartoonist Sukumar, the former secretary of KCA and  the founder of the K.S.Pilla Memorial Freelance Cartoonist Award. 

We wish you a joyous tour through the nostalgia spread over here.
(As per records this pocket cartoon ''VELUCHAR''  was published in the Deshabandu , 1949 and 1950)
