Cartoonists have been in the news for all the wrong reasons over the last few weeks. First, of course, there was Mamata Banerjee who expressed her displeasure over a cartoon showing her in poor light. And recently, there was an uproar in the Parliament over an Ambedkar cartoon.
It's good to know that our parliamentarians are using public money and time to snap over pieces of art and not wasting time on trivial issues like national security, the plunging economy and investments. The future is bright. In the meantime, I'll be in hiding so that no one can track me down. It's a dangerous job!
