By Them, For Them
The local people were excited about the idea. Little did they know, or for that matter us, that the local people would chart their own course; something that would prove to be a major change in their outlook. People pooled in ideas and we discussed them together. We organised a crash course in Comics-making and in no time, volunteers came out with Comics – one after another. A new thing was happening. The local people were preparing the campaign material for themselves. Using local characters, which wore traditional dresses and spoke their language, the activists made various comics on issues revolving around them and their society. Everything was familiar and we reaped the benefits of our efforts from Day 1. People came, saw these comics and understood what we were talking about. That is what we wanted.
