Waise toh every Diwali is special but this one was special in other way. I was back from the hospital and on prescribed bed rest the whole day. Pune had an eternally long power cut that day (that means no DVDs...No movies). I was in no mood to read so the Khurafaati Khopdi that I am, planned to make some prank calls and surprise people whom I haven’t spoken to in ages.. Tried to sell credit cards, house loans, club memberships to most of the unsuspecting shikaars, posed as a psycho fan called all Kalakaar type old friends (to my delight none of them had my new no. and I was pretty successful in pester them all).
It was fun catching up with all the cartoonist friends with whom I started my cartooning career long back.…Diwali actually turned into a True Happy Diwali…Power cuts during bed rest aren’t that bad…are they??
Posting some of my old cartoons…and a pic (hope you can differentiate between the pic and cartoons)

PS. Listening to Requiem For A Dream soundtrack, brilliant music…awesome tracks by Clint Mansell.. I was listening to a track called- Winter: The Beginning Of The End, and was shocked to discover that the track Confidence (which used to be one of my most favorite instrumental tracks) from Johnny Gaddar was
copied...err.. I mean… plagiarized... I mean ‘inspired by’- Winter: The Beginning Of The End…
