Artists pay homage to veteran cartoonists

Dec 30, 2008 (DVB)–Cartoonists, artists and literary figures from across Burma paid homage to three elderly cartoonists at the home of Pe Thein, one of the three, in Rangoon’s Hlaing township on 28 December.

It was the 33rd time artists have paid the traditional obeisance to senior cartoonists, but unlike in previous years, participants were not watched or harassed by the authorities at this year’s event, one cartoonist said.
“[The cartoonists] are Saya U Pe Thein, Saya U Aung Shein and Saya U Shwe Minthaa,” he said.
