Rasipuram Krishnaswamy iyer Laxman is his full name. He is well known for the creation of Common man. His elder brother was famous writer R. K. Narayan.
Rambabu you are also from R.K. Laxman profession. You know much more about him. Write more about him.
Dear Anil, First of all, even though I too draw cartoons, R.K Laxman is a giant and I'm mere a speck. Kahan R.K Laxman Aur Kahan Main ? He is in the sky and I'm on the ground.
Now let me tell about late R.K Laxman. He worked as a regular cartoonist in the beginning days as a political catoonist in The Freepress Journal, Mumbai. Later he Joined The Times of India and became famous for his Immortal cartoon " Common man."
His cartoons remain forever.
One of the cartoons which impressed me was, A dialogue between two Villagers. Both had seen that a laughing politician approaching their village for the first time after his election.
They say, It seems, it is the election Time now.
Very funny, what cartoonist express in their cartoon is bitter, but it is sugar and laughing gas coated.
