The Very Best of the Common Man

From financial crises to the woes of householders, from political instability to rampant corruption, Laxman s Common Man cartoons capture the entire gamut of contemporary Indian experience. This special collection featuring the hundred most memorable Common Man cartoons of all time is a tribute to India s best-loved cartoonist and one of the most striking voices commenting on Indian socio-political life

Laxman, the country s sharpest cartoonist and political satirist. Each morning, Laxman s frazzled character, known as the Common Man, confronts India s latest heartbreak with a kind of wry resignation. . . . What s common about this character is that like most Indians, he sees his country being forced through endless indignities by its leaders and yet doesn t even whimper in protest. --Time
