PRince is a cartoon character, created by Indian cartoonist Triambak Sharma and published in the monthly ezine PR-e-Sense published by Prime Point Foundation.

Developing cartoon character[edit]

Based on the suggestions of former Indian President Dr A. P. J. Abdul Kalam, the editorial team of monthly ezine PR-e-Sense decided to introduce cartoons in the ezine. When an announcement to the effect was made in the discussion groups, Mr Triambak Sharma, a well-known cartoonist from Raipur and the editor of Cartoon watch volunteered to provide cartoons for the ezine every month. Instead of publishing regular assorted cartoons, the editorial team decided on creation of a cartoon character, on the lines of R. K. Laxman's ‘Common Man’, to convey the message. After deliberations, it was decided to create a young male character representing the new generation Indian youth. This character was named as 'PRince'.[1]

Journey of Prince[edit]

The first cartoon, created by Triambak Sharma, was launched by Dr Abdul Kalam himself with his autograph, on 24 July 2008 at Rajbhavan, Chennai.[2][3][4][5]

Every edition of PR-e-Sense from July 2008 onwards contains the PRince cartoon. In every issue, PRince conveys a powerful message with a sense of humour.

On 23 April 2010, The Wall Street Journal, carried one of the PRince cartoons with the permission of Triambak Sharma.[6]

Raman Singh, Chief Minister of Chhattisgarh has also appreciated the PRince concept.[7][8][9][10]
