(Zola’s Note) : My siblings and I used to go past her house everyday to go to school nearby, we lived  in an apartment complex diagonally opposite her house in Poes Garden. This was before 1980 when she was still working in the film industry.  But strange that I never really got to see her in person and extreme close quarters until  2001 when she came to inaugurate the World Bank’s new office in Chennai.

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. Thanks Heaps Vinay ! I guess I’ve been very lucky in two ways…one, to have had some level of proximity by actually staying in Poes Garden in the initial years….two, having my cartoons understood in EXACTLY the way I wanted it understood.

      i couldn’t ask for more.

      Thanks to you and other readers for your indulgence !


  1. Nachchu-nu irundhudhu Ravishanker! Loved the detailing of her face. “Last seen” term ku pudhu meaning kuduthuteenge! Kudos to you!! Can’t wait to see what you have to sketch for the Mannaargudi gumbal 😉

    My title for your cartoon – “Last scene”

    Once again, great work!
