Age Old Indian Cartoons .....

Few days back I received the forward from a friend. After a long time it was a different mail than what usually ends up in the mailboxes as forwards. It was the images of the Old Indian Cartoons, those belongs to the Print era, pre-Dilbert and Calvin & Hobbes. It recalled me of my school days. Those days, a local daily called Lokmat had started their own comics for kids called “Lokmat Comics”, which used to depict the stories of Indian as well as foreign characters along with lots of puzzles. All the characters in that comics were drawn by the cartoonist called “Khalil Khan”, who used to sign in a very stylish manner on last page of the cartoon and besides the picture of small puppy. If I can manage to get some of those images and his signature, I will definitely post it here.

Then came the days of reading Special Diwali editions of different Marathi Magazines, and my favorite one was/is Mauj, its famous for their page long cartoon images which sometimes used to span to next page as well. I think they are one who brought the trend of Two Page Comic Pictures, not sure though. Images which I received in the mail resembles to them. Enjoy the pictures of 80’s Indian Dilbert……
