    I feel the Ganesh immersion thing has got out of hand …atleast in Hyderabad..
    Initially there used to be mud Ganeshas which were dropped in a well or a pond…
    Nowadays its a business of crores and they spoil the environment..I hope God loving ppl listen to this and spend money constructively towards welfare of humanity..

  3. Resourceful Says:

    Superb depiction!
    Ganesh Immersion in Hyderabad is a big business indeed. I pray the public realizes that “GANESHA” doesn’t want all this hungama. This year with the terrorist attack threats, it is advisable not to venture out on the streets of Hyderabad on Sep 25th, 2007.

    Good one…
    My little one saw the Ganesha idol being immersed in the water in a ‘koLadappale’. He tried doing it with my FIL’s cellphone too! Result – the phone is not working!

    @srik : B C no. 26 nallu common man bundhangittu…

  12. rk Says:

    praneshachar, srik, arch, veena and anand,
    thanks for the appreciative words.

    a clarification:
    no where in the blog series have i tried to depict the common man. i will never dare to. it just happens that there are a few places where a bald man is there. certainly he is not the ‘common man’, immortalised by RK Laxman. in this particular cartoon, the bald man has no moustache (which is one of the features of Laxman’s Common Man).

    aditi de writes this in the hindu about Laxman’s most famous creation:

    One of the most famous Indians of our time doesn’t exist in real life- the Common Man. With his hair and glasses askew, in his crumpled dhoti and checked shirt, this always puzzled, ever silent being was created by Rasipuram Krishnaswamy Laxman, a cartoonist who has been synonymous with the Times of India ever since your grandfather was a child.

    Laxman once said of his Common Man, “He’s been with me throughout my career. I didn’t 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.” Half a century ago, he would draw a Bengali, a Tamilian, a Punjabi and so on to represent Indians. These figures dropped out of his cartoons gradually, until he was left with this lone character.

    thanks once again for all the encouragement.
    regards and best wishes

    I thought that particular man was as if RKL had come there to approve and appreciate .
    I am sorry for making that observation.It wasn’t meant to be taken that way.
    I repeat the bald man makes one feel as if RKL is there to applaud your cartoon.

  18. rk Says:

    (ps: today’s blog cartoon (32) has both raama and lakshmana in it.)
