NANDA SOOBBEN’S BOOK (article first published : 2004-12-19)

Well-known Durban cartoonist, Nanda Soobben, has recently launched his book Witness to a Decade which will also be published in India.

From his early days when he used to get into trouble for scribbling drawings of football players on the walls of his school, Nanda has notched up an impressive career over the last 25 years. His cartoons are concise, biting and often extremely hilarious. Through the medium of humour, he presents the public with alternative and defiant views on any given subject – no issue is sacred!

Nanda’s first book of cartoons was about Amichand Rajbansi and titled , referring to the House of Delegates. He worked for a considerable time on The Post before moving to weekly publication, The Independent on Saturday, and then on to the Daily News.

Witness to a Decade contains 145 cartoons covering the first decade of democracy. The foreword is written by former Daily News editor, Kaizer Nyatsumba.

Nanda is the founder and creative director of the Centre for Fine Art Animation and Design in Durban where students can study for a higher diploma in animation.
