A sketch by Okhla cartoonist has literally gone viral on the social media with Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and others tweeting it. “It has encouraged me and now I am motivated to make more such cartoons that grab attentions,” Yusuf Munna told OKHLATIMES.A self-taught cartoonist, Yusuf Munna is basically a resident of Gorukhpur and has been living in Okhla for the last 18 years. He has been in the profession of cartoon making for the last 10 years. He draws cartoons for Milli publications that pay him little. He lives in a rented house in Jamia Nagar with his one son and wife.
Down to earth, Yusuf Munna wrote on his timeline: “IAMC के लिए बनाए गए मेरे इस कार्टून को Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal और Film Maker Shirish Kunder ने ट्वीट किया और Aap Leader Ashutosh Gupta ने अपने Facebook पेज पर पोस्ट किया है.”
His post solicited several comments showing how popular Yusuf Munna is among his fans. Moreover, the Kejriwal retweet got more than 1,000 retweet.
Known as Aaam Aaadmi cartoonist, Yusuf Munna moves around in the locality and interacts with residents with little air unlike other “small-time” journalists in the locality who love dropping names and bragging about their contacts.
