Happiness is finding your school drawing book!

A  stained book , school memories and  the common man !

I’ve been on a decluttering and sorting out spree for the past few days . Among old cards , letters, photographs , slam books and diaries , I found an old drawing book from when I was in secondary school . My mum is quite a keeper and although it isn’t something I always appreciate , this time I am so grateful.


Sunanda ma’am must have told us to draw what we like , anything we wanted ( she was liberal and fun!) . I was clearly inspired by R K Laxman at the time ( my attempted crow and my own take on the common man’s woes in crowded buses explains that). Am not sure why and how I came up with this ,  but am glad I found this .dsc_0509

    1. Yes , I used to love the cartoons in the newspaper. Someone had gifted my mum a coffee table book with his cartoons and a few fun facts . It is there that I read about his love for crows 🙂 I used to dread buses as a child , this drawing probably stems from that fact too ….lol Thanks R.
