Aseem Trivedi

Aseem Trivedi is originally from Unnao district in Uttar Pradesh, where his parents still live. He showed ability in drawing and art since childhood. By the time he was 20, he had worked with several Kanpur-based newspapers as a cartoonist.

He moved to Delhi in 2010, when he was just 22 and continued to work as a freelance cartoonist. He became closely involved with the Anna Hazare led campaign against corruption and displayed several of his cartoons during protests.

Aseem was arrested in Mumbai for making eight seditious cartoons. A group of people including some well-known media persons criticized government’s decision of arresting him and protested all over the country. Aseem was supposed to fly to Syria to collect an award for his cartoons but he could not go because of his arrest.

The award, given by the Cartoonists Rights Network International, is for Courage in Editorial Cartooning.
