Book Description
From financial crises to the woes of householders, from political instability to rampant corruption, Laxman`s cartoons capture the entire gamut of contemporary Indian experience. Hilarious and thought-provoking at the same time, this is a treasure-house of humour from one of the most striking voices commenting on Indian socio-political life today. `For half a century, the Times of India has thoughtfully provided an antidote to all the bad news brimming on its front pages. It`s a sketch, a single box, inked by R.K. Laxman, the country`s sharpest cartoonist and political satirist. Each morning, Laxman`s frazzled character, known as the Common Man, confronts India`s latest heartbreak with a kind of wry resignation. Meek, doddering, and with a moustache that bristles like an electrocuted mongoose, he`s a witness to everything: scheming politicians, rapacious bureaucrats and gossiping housewives. What`s common about this character is that like most Indians, he sees his country being forced through endless indignities by its leaders and yet doesn`t even whimper in protest.’
