Bhrashtamev Jayate (Hail Corruption)

 

Here is the cartoon that won Aseem Trivedi imprisonment in a case of sedition.

Unbelievable! A massive democracy like India can be forced to jitters by a mere drawing not only shows the insecurity of the State but rather ironically, it also gives hope to the millions of dissenters. At least there is a reaction to such expressions in India, unlike the USA where the powers are not at all bothered about anti-State creative comments, be it cinema, music or even cartoons.
