A cartoon is perhaps the most biting and most effective form of comment, and it takes a genius to draw a great one. RK Laxmans Common Man was just such an uncommon accomplishment. For over fifty years, he laid bare the corruption, hypocrisy and absurdity of political and everyday life through The Common Man, a daily cartoon that appeared in The Times of India. The mild, stooped Common Man was the conduit for Laxmans piercing vision, hailed as nearly unparalleled.In this book, the second volume in the An uncommon man series, Ajit Ninan, the Times of India Group Chief Graphics Consultant, curates a selection of his mentor, Laxmans work on domestic and global politics, economics, personalities and more. Section by section, he explains what makes the Common Man so uncommon and rare an achievement, and why Laxmans voice is unique in the world of cartooning. As a cartoonist and an admirer for more than fifty years from 1966 till date, Ninan looks back with wonder and admiration at the genius of RK Laxman. And invites you to do the same.
