But unfortunately most of the 'jokes' you see online are tasteless, badly made or just unfunny. It is a rare Indian meme that catches the eye and a good online Indian comic is barely available.
But all is not lost, indeed it seems the best is still to come.
Enter Garbage Bin.
Based out of Facebook, this exceptionally well-made and hilarious cartoon strip follows the misadventures of Guddu, a little Delhi kid living in one of the innumerable housing colonies that dot the Capital.
The rest of the cast mostly consists of his strict but very loving mother, an occasional appearance by his father, his gang of friends and his 'girlfriend' laila.
Written in Delhi Hinglish, the gags are mostly based on the ludicrous amount of shenanigans (and slang swear words) that most Indian kids in the 90s seemed to have gotten up to. (Many of jokes will seem like flashbacks to those who were kids in that time.)
While initially it might appear as though the audience for this is limited to Delhi children, just a few panels is enough to knock anyone with both the giggles and nostalgia equally hard.
Perhaps the strongest feature of the comic is its ability to accurately capture the flavor of being an Indian child - something rarely achieved in either comic or novel form.
Add to the mix some rather novel storylines - involving things like escaping from girls during Raksha Bandhan and the perils of trying to buy a spool of thread that matches the color of the blouse your mother is stitching – and this one is a definite hit.
The only drawback one can find is this -
Why is there no dedicated site for this comic yet?
Through just Facebook updates from December 2011, the comic has built a huge audience of over 3,00,000 followers. Surely the time is right to give Guddu a proper home in a website.
He deserves it! This is the best Garbage you can find!
