R K Laxman- A Common man-To laugh and make others laugh


Remembering R K Laxman


Today is 94th Birth anniversary of R K Laxman full name, Rasipuram Krishnaswami Iyer Laxman oh!! Simply R K Laxman. An Indian cartoonist, illustrator, and humorist, R K Laxman  who created common man in 1951. Google pays tribute to R K Laxman by today’s Google Doodle on RK Laxman

His great work is compiled by his daughter in law Usha Laxman and granddaughter Rimanika Laxman. The website is online now, you can have a look at this online storyboard.

Great artist, who had Bal Thackeray as a fellow cartoonist, once said about his common man, “He’s been with me throughout my career. I did not find him. He found me… I would say he symbolises the mute millions of India, or perhaps the whole world, a silent spectator of marching time.”
