While West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee does not take cartooning or caricature kindly and the majority of the political class, too, shares a dislike for it, the new resident of Rashtrapati Bhavan has a different take.
Pranab Mukherjee has always had a hearty laugh over a good caricature; he even hosted a group of cartoonists who had called on him on Saturday, September 1, inviting him for a function honouring the late cartoonist PKS Kutty, who used to caricature Mukherjee in Bengali newspapers Ananda Bazar Patrika and Aajkaal.
Mukherjee was pleased as punch!
Well, now that we are assured that our president is a good sport, we decided to re-run the Pranabda cartoons that our always brilliant cartoonist Satish Acharya has done till date.
Here is hoping the prez will like them too and have an equally hearty laugh over them.
