R. K. Laxman, Indian cartoonist speaks about political cartoons
This will not post anything on Facebook or anywhere else. Laxman had that common touch which appealed to the common man. And not surprisingly, he created his own 'Common Man'. Many of the cartoons made by him long back still hold true and tell us that he was indeed a visionary, to forsee today's India.

Laxman was born and educated in Mysore. Soon after he graduated from the University of Mysore, he started drawing cartoons for the Free Press Journal, a newspaper in Bombay.

He has written and published numerous short stories, essays and travel articles. Some of these were published in a book, Idle Hours.

According to anthropologist Ritu Gairola Khanduri, "Clad in a dhoti and a plaid jacket, the puzzled Common Man is no dupe: his sharp observations miss no detail of the political circus.
