Uncommon-ed the common – Tribute to R.K. Laxman

I was filled with rage

RIP #RKLaxman it trend
As I opened my twitter page,
Has the world of a ‘common man’ come to an end?
‘You said it’ in subtle ways
That reached the heart and stayed.
Be it the caricatures of Malgudi days
Or the political cartoons you portrayed
Ironies in life of a simple means
You filled them with humor and zest
The staple Roti and beans
Were easy to digest
Twisted ways of Indian lives
Are getting more tangled now
As we lost the comic jibes
And an art to laugh at ourselves being tow.
