Manmohan Singh shares retirement plans with Sachin!

PM Manmohan Singh refused to retire when a select group of editors asked him about his retirement plans. I'm always puzzled by such questions. He's been asked this question repeatedly.
The other person who always face such question about retirement is cricketer Sachin Tendulkar. Even when he scores a century, media will still ask him about his retirement plans.
Their answers always make media look stupid!

From my facebook page...

Making of this cartoon...
One technique of getting an idea for a cartoon(on contemporary issues) is by connecting two hot issues. When PM Singh declared that he won't retire, I was really surprised to see the headline. Why should he retire? Just to make way for little Rahul? That tempted me to think about another great achiever who regularly faces such question, Sachin Tendulkar. Why should Sachin retire, when he's performing far far better than any young cricketer? And look at the alternatives we have once he retires! Our bench strength in Team India looks more like a hospital ward!

Coming to the illustration part, I'm not very happy with the drawing part, but had to finish it in a hurry so as to meet the deadline. I wish I could spend little more time to get the right look for the carton. Do share your views about the idea and cartoon. Thanks

Nice cartoon Satish and great idea too. These retirement questions have indeed become a joke now a days. Love our PM's caricature in the cartoon.
