India lost her beloved “Common-Man” creator, cartoonist RK Laxman this week. Arre Chintu salutes RK Laxman by compiling a short list of his great creations of his career spanning over 5 decades.
1. When he pitted himself against Indira Gandhi
His understanding of the Emergency was as appropriate as it can ever get!

Emergency press regulation did not stop him from doing his job, yet again
