The Cartoonist

by NEHA SINGH GOHIL

Vishavjit Singh, a New York-based software engineer, spends his free time creating cartoons about Sikhs. His work, over five hundred cartoons in total, has spanned topics ranging from Sikh basketball players to Punjab politics. His audience is anyone who can access the internet and his website. So not only is Vishavjit using a unique vehicle  -  cartoons  -  to comment on current events and the press, but he also uses high-tech new media to create and disseminate his work.

This audio slideshow includes some of his work, as well as excerpts from a conversation with the artist on April 27, 2007. Please click  here.

Vishavjit Singh is a pretty awesome guy. I was pleased to meet him the other day at New York's Sikh Day Parade and his very nice family as well. I also met another sikhchic.com writer, named Manjyot Kaur. That was pretty cool.

2: Rishipal Singh (London), May 08, 2007, 12:53 AM.

The only negative thing (if possible) I can say about Vishavjit Singh is that he is not in the UK with us. Keep up the good work.

3: Kodakkal Shivaprasad (Shimoga, India), May 10, 2007, 6:58 PM.

I like people depicted in cartoon form. It brings out a smile, and creates a friendly environment. Please keep it up.

I met Vishavjit Singh in Fremont Gurdwara in June. He is an awesome guy and I really felt fortunate to have met him and learnt so many new things which we intend to implement in Gurmat Camps in India.

I would love to meet this gursikh some day. Awesome guy. Very intellectual and knowledgeable. Keep up the good work.

I don't know this man, but the work he is doing is great; it helps Sikhs express there feelings. Thanks to V. Singh.

8: Jagjeet Kaur (Delhi, India), May 25, 2009, 5:12 AM.

Vishavjit Singh: I have gone through your creations and I like them. I think this is a very good way of expressing your feelings. So keep it up. Best of luck.

Though it's sad that the occasion for me to find the Sikhtoons website was to read more about Sikhs in the US after the tragedy in Wisconsin, USA, it was a pleasure reading the postings of various visitors to the Sikhtoon website. I hope to visit it more often as and when I get the opportunity.
