mid-day adds 'You & Eye', comic strip on visual disability to its comics section

Mumbai newspaper mid-day is set to rejig its comics and games section. It has added comic strip on visual disability titled ‘You & Eye’. 

The comic strip is a collaborative effort between Jagran Group publication mid-day; the Pune-based cartoonist; former journalist Krishna Warrier and Dr Sam Taraporevala, director at the Xavier’s Resource Centre for the Visually Challenged (XRCVC). Dr Taraporevala suffers from 100 per cent blindness and has led the sociology department of St Xavier’s College for two decades.

Dr Taraporevala and Warrier will provide fodder for situations that the blind often find themselves in while Ponnappa gives it his brand of wit. “mid-day editor Tinaz Nooshian was excited about completing the triangle, and here we are,” says Ponnappa of the comic that will kick off this week in the paper’s Sunday edition, as part of a rejig of the tabloid’s leisure section.

Sandeep Khosla, CEO, mid-day said, “To constantly innovate is our endeavor. The new avatar of the Timepass section is a step towards offering the best in content to our readers.”

The section will also see the introduction of Dr Love, an expert who solves relationship riddles in a confusing digital age; a brand new set of puzzles and games; a crossword that tests your grasp of Mumbai; an environment comic by Rohan Chakravarty, Bollywood crossword and daily horoscope.
