Cartoonish Gogi

Nigar Nazar, who is the first cartoonist of Pakistan have created some of the most intriguingly creative cartoon that challenges the stereotypical role of women in a typical Pakistani society. According to Nigar, Cartoons have always been her passion. She used to draw them every time as it was a kind of meditation and fun for her. Her story is similar to the stories of many young girls in Pakistan. She was pursuing her career in medical studies when finally she realized her destiny. She quit medicine for fine arts and that’s where her creative journey actually begun.

She has created a cartoon character named “Gogi”. Gogi wears polka dot prints and represent almost every educated and passionate woman of Pakistan. Through Gogi, Nigar wants to portray that girls should be given equal respect and happiness as boys in the society. Their births and their victories should be celebrated the way people celebrate the victories and births of sons in the family.

Nigar do not follow anything special but she says that she gets inspiration from what happens around her. All the social issues happening in the environment let her draw cartoons that display contradictions of the society. Her Gogi comics are not just everything serious but she creates a laughter mood through adding humor to her cartoons as well.

Through her drawings and Gogi, Nigar wants to emphasize on women education in the society. This is only possible when people respect women the way they respect men of the society.

Afreen is a young writer and visionary towards life predominantly. I believe that writing is similar to life; it inspires surprises and creates. Being a Literature Masters, I am passionate about viewing the world with literary spectacle. Solely in love with this beautiful part of Universe called Pakistan, I am creating words and ideas for CharchaGuru.
