Cartoonist RK Laxman passes away

 

His cartoons spoke on behalf of the ‘common man’ . No politician, no matter, how powerful he/she might have been was ever spared by the eminent cartoonist whose ‘common man’ character became the face of the ‘Aam Admi’ in India.

A fearless critic of politics and politicians in India, who drew his heart out with a neutral point of view. An inspiration, for all political cartoonists in the nation, RK Laxman will always stay around us through his awesome cartoons.

P Chidambaram mocks at Common Man ?

Home Minister,P Chidambaram’s statement on common man – “we are prepared to pay Rs 15 for a bottle of water, but we can’t bear to pay Re 1 more of 1 kg of rice or wheat, we are prepared to pay Rs 20 for an ice cream cone, but we can’t pay Re 1 more for one kilo of wheat or rice” has been criticized by opposition party BJP who believe Chidambaram does not understand common man’s problems !

Well, rice and wheat is consumed on a daily basis hence even an increase of a Rupee would affect every concerned household compared to the cost of ice-creams and bottled-water which are consumed less frequently.
