Chacha Chaudhary Comics are a series of very popular comic books conceptualized by Pran. It is very popular amongst kids and elderly alike; however, Kids are majority of their readers. It is arguable India’s largest selling comic book. At first instance, Chacha Chaudhary Comics will come across as simple comic book with appealing characters with an intriguing storyline delivered to the masses through a comic book. However, Chacha Chaudhary Comics goes much beyond then just being a comic book. Here are 6 reasons why Chacha Chaudhary Comics are a great companion for children:
Blend of Cartoon and Learning that’s what Chacha Chaudhary comics are all about
Children are usually attracted towards Cartoon and characters that are relatable yet interesting. One of the popular examples is Marvel Comics. But, most of the cartoons Comics only act as a source of reading entertainment and minimal learning. However, Chacha Chaudhary Comics offer best of both worlds by blending moral values learning with respectable, adorable and affable characters such as Chacha Chaudhary, Sabu – a giant sized muscular alien from Jupiter, Bini Chachi – Chacha’s wife and Rocket – Chacha’s pet dog. This thereby makes ingraining moral values more effectively through a medium of comic book.
Brains and Brawns and not Brains v/s Brawns
This might come as a surprise to many who have grown up reading Chacha Chaudhary Comics having the popular phrase, “Chacha Chaudhary ka dimaag computer se bhi teez chalta hai” , conclude that it is Brains v/s Brawns where Brain overpowers Brawn more often than not. However, if you consistently read all the series of Chacha Chaudhary Comics, you would realize that Brain and Brawn actually complement each other. This is reflected in the Comics by the team work of Chacha Chaudhary and Sabu. While Chacha cleverly works out a plan to undo the dacoits and wrong doers, Sabu executes it with his physical strength. No wonder Chacha and Sabu rule the heart of million kids in India.
With a typical Indian middle class family characterization of Bini Chachi with her Belan (Rolling Pin), Chacha Chaudhary, Sabu, Rocket and Pinki, Chacha Chaudhary Comics, in many ways, reflects the strong family bonding culture of India. Sabu is a giant alien from Jupiter who eats truckloads of parathas and halwas day in and day out whereas Rocket is a stray dog adopted by Chacha Chaudhary. Despite the initial resistance by Bini Chachi, she lovingly accepts both of them. This communication and teaching of values of co-cooperativeness, acceptance and love is an important value that the kids frequently take away from the Chacha Chaudhary Comics.
A good valued Indian super hero
In the Chacha Chaudhary Comics, Sabu is a giant alien who hails from Jupiter and has come to planet Earth. He stays back on Earth because he falls in love with Parathas and Halwas made by Binni Chachi. All this said and done, more importantly, Sabu is a muscular super hero raised with good moral values inculcated into him by Chacha Chaudhary and Bini Chachi. This is important for all the kids in their growing up days as most of them are attracted towards the physical looks and size. However, Chacha Chaudhary Comics subtly puts across the message that irrespective of the size and brute strength, it is the values that one stands for which earns him/her the respect and love in the society.
A series of Cahcha Chaudhary comics
As children, we never want good things to end. Children derive great pleasure and joy by reading Chacha Chaudhary Comics. And very aptly, Pran returns the favor by coming up with new and interesting series month after month thereby keeping the children’s interest alive. This continual development of comics made Chacha Chaudhary an instant hit as sporadic editions of the book would have had Chacha Chaudhary and his intelligence fade away from the minds of the children but it made sure it didn’t by coming up with varied storylines filled with valuable learnings. I am sure, we all very eagerly waited for the new series of Chacha Chaudhary Comics during childhood and possible some of us still do.
To kill Evil is not to Kill Evil-doer
A high exposure to super hero comics like Superman, Batman and Spider-man leads children to believe that in order to mitigate the evilness from the society; you have to kill the evil-doers. However, Chacha Chaudhary comics, brings a refreshing change by reflecting that evilness can be taken out of the evil doers by making them realize their mistake. As simple and unrealistic as it may sound, but in most cases, the dacoits and the wrong doers are left embarrassed by Chacha Chaudhary owing to their undesirable actions. But they come out as positively transformed human beings out of this experience. This instills a belief in children that killing the evil doer is not the only way to mitigate socially undesirable actions from the society. These values become more effective when inculcated in children in their formative years. The children may not minutely analyze the message from the Comic, but the ease and simplicity with which Pran puts across these messages is what makes Chacha Chaudhary Comics a boon to a childhood experience.
Through this attractive and pleasing Chacha Chaudhary Comics series, Pran time and again emphasizes the fact to the readers – who are mostly children – that good always wins over evil. Although this message is something which is repeatedly said and communicated to children at school and homes but Chacha Chaudhary Comics does it the way that very few others do – through comics. Isn’t that amazing? Research has said that, “successful, pleasing, acceptable and understandable communication is not just about what is being said, but more importantly, how it is said”. That said, Pran, on most occasions, strikes the right chords with the much loved Chacha Chaudhary Comics. Finally, if you don’t happen to be a kid or a teenager, it is still highly recommended to read one in order to experience the craft and artistry of Pran and intelligence of Chacha Chaudhary.
