From a cartoonist’s brush

I was posted in Bank’s office at Chandigarh for some years in early nineties. Our officer’s association had arranged a family get together on 2nd May 92 in which Mr.Sandeep Joshi, a well known cartoonist with The Tribune had been invited as a Chief Guest. An exhibition of some of his cartoons was also arranged in the hall where the function was held. I had the good fortune of interviewing Mr. Joshi and I had asked him some funny questions to which he had replied in a lighter vein. While he was fielding the questions, he had quietly drawn my caricature and had presented it to me at the end of the function, much to my delight. I confess that it bears a close resemblance to my profile, with a dash of his cartoonists license showing me as an enlightened guy (Ahem!!!):


I have preserved that valuable gift of Mr. Joshi till date and am sharing now with the readers of this blog. By the way, one of my questions was, “Why are there no lady cartoonists in India?”. I do not recall what his reply was and am searching for the answer till date. If any of you can really enlighten me, I shall be pleased.
