Ahmedabad, May 15 (ANI): Shoeb Ahmed, an artist in Ahmedabad has put up a two-day exhibition of cartoons caricatured by him, depicting the country's current political scenario.

The exhibition opened on Thursday and on view are around 70 caricatures of prominent political leaders bound to make visitors chuckle.

Ahmed has showcased through his witty creations, the agenda of various politicians and the aspirations of the public in the backdrop of the recently concluded elections.

In his caricatures, he also reckoned the perspective of a common voter and also touched upon certain odd events like the hurling of footwear at leaders, which startled the entire nation.

"I have used faces more in my work that are clear to me and are known to me. Like, Manmohan Singh, LK Advani, Narendra Modi, Sonia Gandhi among others. I have done a light satire on some events or on some other issue concerning them in my cartoons," he said.

The visitors enjoyed glancing at the cartoons.

"People see cartoons and understand them. Those who can't understand an event directly can understand through cartoons. They can gauge what's one trying to convey and what's happening in the reality," said Gaurav Bhavsar, a visitor.

The exhibition will conclude today just a day prior to the counting of votes. (ANI)
