The NUST Community Service Club
(NCSC) course participants of SCEE (CSL-401) were treated to a special guest on
1st April, 2014 (Tuesday). The very celebrated CEO of Gogi Studios
and the first Pakistani female cartoonist, Ms Nigar Nazar visited SCEE Seminar
Hall on an observatory visit.
Ms. Nigar attended an hour
session on “Stress Management” by AM Maheen Mumtaz. Ms. Nigar was also invited
on the stage to tell the audience about her famous comic characters. She talked
to the audience about how the comic is being projected to disseminate a social
message to the community. The main protagonist of her comic is Gogi, an urban
Pakistani woman struggling with her frailties in the context of
social norms. But her subject areas are not only restricted
to gender issues. Ms. Nigar told the audience that environment is a subject
which is really close to her heart. The comics also cover social issues ranging
from corruption, sectarian violence and education.
