Chartered Account by day, cartoonist and Writer by night, passionate athlete at twilight and dutiful householder on weekends  There are people who make things for the Western markets and those who do the same for the Indian market. I make cartoons for an audience who are rooted culturally in India but who are spiritually agile enough to assume Western sensibilities - who swear by Quentin Tarantino AND David Dhawan / Bharathiraja in the same breath - I make cartoons for this audience - the INDIAN diaspora in INDIA !


  1. As always, Ravi, very pithy in choice of words, pictures etc. Appreciate your ability to focus on so much of detailing in every cartoon of yours. Hats off!!!


  2. Thanks Vasu ! Very kind of you to take time out to check this and comment. The detailing is a constant process and carries on till the very end i.e till the post is published – just like studying a para before entering the exam hall :):)

    And the icing on the cake is having the details noticed.
    Thats very very encouraging


  3. Brilliantly done, Ravishanker! Sorry for the late response; have been traveling for work. This is probably your most complex cartoon ever. “Buck Stops Here” was an amazingly creative play of words! I especially liked the glass piece shaped like a knife. What irony! A knife-like device to get rid of guns! “Deposit your old AK47s here!” – Awesome sauce!


    1. Ram Murali : Thanks so much for your comments !

      ” I especially liked the glass piece shaped like a knife”
      I guess I was channeling ‘Pushpak’ a ka Paysum padam :):)

      But what I need to internalize better is your work ethic – responding promptly but not losing focus at work. I’ve failed to do both of late.
      I’ve become one of those junkies – WhatsApp before brushing teeth !


  4. Another master piece on the master stroke by Modi.

    The zoomed Modiji face is quite likely appearing in the nightmares of some of our co-citizens.


    1. Absolutely Spot on ! Its a nightmare alright. We seem to be handed new cards almost daily, First, the smog – I was halfway through a gag on that one but aborted it because of the demonetization.

      Looks like turbulence is hear to stay….
