Cartoonist Sudhir Tailang Rip

Rating: 4.9

I remember those days
Which began on a positive note
With my copy of ‘Hindustan Times'
Carrying cartoons of Sudhir Tailang
Day to day and invariably
Leaving a delicate smile on my face
Some times they amazed
Some times they dazed
Some times they played eye-opener
Some times they did soul-searching

Always feeling the pulse of our society

A sincere tribute to a man who must have been a funny and irreverent cartoonist. Strong last line: 'Disgusted by those managing the stage'. Effective use of repetition-'some times'. The actual cartoon is so funny.

Caroons are a device of social control, the cartoon attached by Rajnish Manga is really interesting. The poem is a lovely one.

I do not know this cartoonist but the ones I do like and follow are a special breed of journalist/reporter/artist/philosopher/humorist/writer. They are capable of amusing people while at the same time educating them about the particular wrongs he sees in society. This poem is an epic tribute to not only this cartoonist but to the entire field of these social commentators. Excellent write.

Thanks for visiting the poem and for such nice and thoughtful critique. The tribe of really good cartoonists who are not only sensitive but have also a great sense of humour is dwindling.
