Castles in the air - they are so easy to take refuge in. And so easy to build, too.

आम्हां घरी धन शब्दांचीच रत्नें | शब्दांचीच शस्त्रें यत्न करुं ||
शब्द चि आमुच्या जीवांचे जीवन | शब्दें वांटूं धन जनलोकां ||
तुका म्हणे पाहा शब्द चि हा देव | शब्द चि गौरव पूजा करुं ||

Signs of our times

Got these in my mail as a forward.

I remember Ajit Ninan from the time he used to draw for Target - a popular teenage magazine in the 80s and early 90s. Mooch and Pooch were his most famous characters, who solved crimes by literally stumbling on the criminal, in a manner reminiscent of Shikari Shambhu. Sad that the magazine closed.

A take on Slumdog Millionaire.

A take on both Satyam and the shoe-throwing mania.

Another take on Satyam.

Corporate lay-offs in the name of recession.

Our esteemed neighbour.

Another take on the recession.

On pre-election alliances.

Man, twenty years later he still retains his distinct style. And I guess he will in time take over from Laxman, as he moves towards retirement.
