Cartoons



Thus wrote Indira Gandhi in her Foreword to 'Don't spare me Shankar' " Cartoonists have become an integral part of the intellectual life of a modern society. Some draw without intent to draw blood; some remove masks and hold a mirror to the face of society. There cannot be a cartoon without a certain amount of irreverence. 

Pt.Jawaharlal Nehru admired the cartoonists and used to have a hearty laugh, often at his own expense. We re-live the controversies of yesterday in a caricature, a cartoon, the vanities of some, and the intrinsic strength of some others..."

We must learn to laugh at ourselves.
