I am fond of cartoons. And I am partial towards Indian authors. So when an Indian comes up wtih a comic strip that someone like me can totally relate to, I can just stand back and drool and enjoy the subtle and not so subtle puns.

Here are some of my favourites

On Mumbai's taxiwalas.....

Mumbai's noise pollution

Mumbai's monsoon

Mumbai - Bombs and Real estate
Mumbai - condition of general infrastructure!

Indians and racism
GWBE signing off. Next post from UK!

PS: Do buy Suki by Manjula Padmanabhan! She will keep you entertained for sure. A small warning: Expect a lot of crazy :)

thats good stuff.I remember my father have a good collection of old mallu stuff with heavy sarcasm.sarcasm was never a flavour that we indians had in comic strips.I dont know if you recall a strip comics by P.K.Mantri.I dont like to use the popular cliche here,But if he was born somewhere else and did his stuff in engllish .............
