Renowned cartoonist R K Laxman turns 90

Pune: Legendary cartoonist R K Laxman, well-known for his `Common Man` cartoons, turned 90 today.

Seated on a wheel chair and surrounded by his family members, Laxman welcomed a steady stream of well-wishers, including noted jurist Ram Jethmalani, at his residence here.

Some city-based artistes even drew cartoons for Laxman who became emotional as he watched them.

A cake was cut to celebrate the birthday of Laxman, who has regaled generations with his brilliant satire targeting politicians, corrupt bureaucrats through the `Common Man` caricature.

Laxman has been undergoing speech therapy, since he suffered a series of paralytic strokes in the recent past.
