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. Very well-written. Or rather, SOOPERB!
    I really like how you evoke an earlier era through witty and entertaining nuggets. It is a real strength of yours and you have, through write-ups such as this one and the one on movie theatres back then have made this your own!

    1. Ah there you are namma Bond Murali (Sathyaraj style) !

      Thanks so much for your continued encouragement and support !

      The ultimate endorsement came from my VCR owning friend from Balajinagar.
      “Excellent description of …… da !” (the ‘Navin’ character)

      I even recall the FIRST time I dashed on my Kinetic Honda all the way to Nungambakkam from Mylapore to ensure that the cassettes i wanted were available.

      (Sigh) That adrenaline rush was something else…
