    Just like Stan Lee does little cameo s in Marvel movies, Laxman includes himself in the illustrations, gives the perspective of a common man in a witty way It would have been better if the book didn t have too many doctor jokes.

    Nothing short of 5 stars for this book which is a small, fun filled ride that brings to you comedy loaded with tingling sarcasm The jokes are crisp and yet every jokes hits you hard and makes you look back at the event that gave birth to the sarcasm it intends.

    Although The Times of India was and is still dumb at its best, it was R.K Laxman s satirical cartoons which had brought smile despite the sad state of the current affairs for the past fifteen years The above image of a common man was perfectly depicted in them R.K Laxman was the younger brother of R.K Narayan who is the author of Malgudi Days He began to illustrate the stories by his elder brother and then started drawing political cartoons at The Hindu.

Eventually, he moved to The Times of India in 1951 and ended an illustrious career spanningthan fifty years when he was affected by a stroke in 2003 Anthropologist Ritu G Khanduri notesR K Laxman structures his cartoon news through a plot about corruption and a set of characters This news is visualized and circulates through the recurring figures of the mantri minister , the Common Man and the trope of modernity symbolized by the airplane Now, coming back to the book, it is divided yet amalgamated in two parts First part on the right or odd numbered pages, the best I believe, is a satirical collection of cartoons based on medical profession s topics like overcrowded hospitals front cover page , laboratory research, immigration of doctors to North America and Europe, ailments, maladies, and politicians and criminals feigning illness The collection is simply brilliant.Now, moving to the next part, the publishers thought that adding lame jokes to this book would enhance the size quality of the book How wrong could they be Most of the jokes are pathetic and one could not even smile wile reading them.Finally, I am enclosing with a famous cartoon of R.K Laxman on elections and promises

    A Dose of Laughter brings together a hundred cartoons by India s best loved cartoonist, RK Laxman, on medicine and related topics Health, sanitation, pollution, adulterated foodstuffs and drugs all of these become the butt of Laxman s jokes Along with the hundred cartoons are a hundred jokes, nearly all of them specifically related to doctors This book is a very quick, very easy read Laxman s cartoons, barring the occasional one a lab coat clad gentleman, shaking hands with a monkey in a fo A Dose of Laughter brings together a hundred cartoons by India s best loved cartoonist, RK Laxman, on medicine and related topics Health, sanitation, pollution, adulterated foodstuffs and drugs all of these become the butt of Laxman s jokes Along with the hundred cartoons are a hundred jokes, nearly all of them specifically related to doctors This book is a very quick, very easy read Laxman s cartoons, barring the occasional one a lab coat clad gentleman, shaking hands with a monkey in a forest and telling a friend who s standing alongside that the monkey had once been in their lab but has now retired , are mostly pretty funny They run the gamut from comments on staff strikes in hospitals, pollution, drought, the heavy schoolbags children bear, andbut the cartoons that connect to politics are the best A pair of stick thin, decrepit villagers happily assure a visiting politician that the drought hasn t affected them at all, because they ve always starved here A sweeper, bearing a broom and dustpan, standing expectantly outside a top minister s office, is informed by a minor official that all that isn t needed now it was only for the launching of the sanitation drive For me, the accompanying jokes take away somewhat from the joy of Laxman s cartoons Some of the jokes are poorly chosen in this day and age, Sardarji jokes are hardly considered correct , and a sequence of poor two line PJs around the halfway mark is tedious I d have preferred this, even if it meant a substantially slimmer book or a book divided into two parts, with the other devoted to another topic , to be devoted exclusively to RK Laxman Despite that, an enjoyable read

    A perfect book to cheer us in these troubled times, where politicians, police, and doctors are the only people who the common man is interacting with It reminds us of our days of the newspaper cartoon clippings Each joke has a deeper meaning filled with sarcasm and wit I loved every bit of the book.

  9. Guttu says:

    The rating is for the R.K.Laxman cartoons Most of the other jokes are pretty lame Quite a few of them were familiar Go fo it if you have nothing else to read

    Laxmans cartoons are good but the hundred jokes are just average.
