    A hundred though, to be truthful, just ninety nine, since one is a repeat of RK Laxman s cartoons about politics and politicians form half of this book The other half of this book consists of jokes about the same subject, ranging from hilarious one liners like Political speeches are like a steer a point here, a point there, and a lot of bull in between, to longer,complex ones that go intothan a page The jokes are funny, and are a good counterbalance to Laxman s cartoons Barring A hundred though, to be truthful, just ninety nine, since one is a repeat of RK Laxman s cartoons about politics and politicians form half of this book The other half of this book consists of jokes about the same subject, ranging from hilarious one liners like Political speeches are like a steer a point here, a point there, and a lot of bull in between, to longer,complex ones that go intothan a page The jokes are funny, and are a good counterbalance to Laxman s cartoons Barring one or two cartoons that might need you to be knowledgable about certain aspects of Indian politics, most are very generic, poking fun at the average neta s propensity for telling tall tales, for promising the stars, whiling away time in office, honing the fine art of denial, resorting to underhand means to win elections, and so on My favourite one and so appropriate even now is one where a minister and his wife are sitting at home, with a newspaper beside them listing all the countries the minister s been visiting over the past few months The wife is happily telling her husband that considering how very popular he is abroad, he should try standing for election in all those countries.All in all, a funny and clever set of cartoons and jokes, let down only by the fact that nobody seems to have paid much attention to editing them There s that one cartoon that s been repeated there are several jokes that veer from one tense to another or contain grammatical errors
