Product description


The book, as expected, is a nice collection of R.K.Narayanan timeless cartoons but there should have been more of them for 200 bucks (or maybe i cant have enough and finished up too quick). Anyway its a nice addition to any collection. Cheers --Abhishek Chakraborty Jan 7, 2015

This book is definitely one to go into the permanent collection.The book was delivered within two days of ordering. Usual Flipkart packaging - good. Good print quality. No issues only A good read :) --Moumita Dasgupta Aug 30, 2014

R K Laxman does it again! His humorous yet insightful take on the flawed Indian political and social scene made me laugh and laugh. The cartoons enlivened my despondent afternoon like no other! --ayalakshmi desai May 8, 2014
