The way bombs are being discovered from the nukkads and corners of the city of Surat!

Midday readers were furious in response to the trust vote.
Their letters reflected their disappointment with our politicians and the illustration was an attempt to go with their opinion
Caricature of Somnath Chatterjee, done when he was expelled from the CPM.
He's struggling find a direction. Dilemma indeed!
If MPs can sell their soul for money, then they do need to share their booty with the voters who made them an MP! If you ask an MP they'll readily tell you that they do pay for votes, so they sell their vote!

The cover done for Midday on the eve of Trust vote,
comparing the occasion to IPL. Thoroughly enjoyed doing the caricatures of our politicians who have reduced the largest Democracy in the World to a TV Tamasha!

The sports cover on the people who are adding mirchi to the Cricket masala.
Would have loved to add some more funny details if I had some more time.
But that's the irony of working in a newspaper with very tight deadline.
Without doubt it's a kinda fun too!

It's ridiculous how politicians like Amar Singh are calling the shots in the Govt.
He's been demanding certain policy changes to suit his corporate friends, ridiculing the democratic system in the process
Few of Shiv Sena's ex-members were convicted in '92 Mumbai riots case, with little punishment.
But the bigger and more powerful names have never been surfaced in the case, leaving the victims of the riots lose faith in the judicial system.

How do you draw a line between THE FEAR and THE PRECAUTION?
Especially if you're in media!
This cartoon wasn't published as few journalists thought it could be offending as I had shown Manmohan Singh as a woman with bindi and saree! They asked me to remove the bindi and saree and make him a MAN again. But I knew if I made those changes I would've lost the humour! So finally some other cartoon went instead of this.
Aren't we getting too panicky? A hostile crowd/group can find offence in any visual, any word, any crusade. Why do we have to compromise on our 'disciplined freedom' in the name of constraint? Cartoonists all over the World use personalities/celebrities to represent a situation and carry their opinion.
What do you think about this cartoon? Is it offending to Sikh community or to Congress party?
Please send me your comment on firstname.lastname@example.org
or you can leave your comment on the blog also.
This will surely help me to fine-tune my freedom and grow as a better cartoonist!
Getting into a college is a challenge these days.
Even after getting 70-80% marks you will still struggle to get into a decent college.
Soon colleges will give jobs directly instead of seats, which seems an easier option!

The same Amar Singh who left Sonia Gandhi's party, with tears in his eyes, after being humiliated four years ago, is now joining hands with the congress party to save the UPA govt. What is the deal that has been chalked out between Samajwadi Party and Congress? People would be more interested to know about that than the N-deal!
Being incompetent is one thing, but being an idiot is yet another thing.
Just decide for yourself what category does BMC chief fall in?
He asked mumbaikars to live with the water and he feels water-logging in Mumbai is basically due to global warming!

Indian stock markets are going through a wild volatile movement.
As more bad news pour in, the markets are dancing wildly to those tunes.
The volatile markets have surprised and embarassed so called 'stock analysts', leaving them with no option but to shut their mouth!
