RK Laxman put back on ventilator, condition critical

New Delhi: Famous cartoonist RK Laxman was again put on ventilator support on Sunday, after his health worsened.

Reports suggest that his condition is quite critical now. Laxman, who created `The Common Man` was earlier admitted in a private hospital this month following multiple-organ failure.

He had been put off the ventilator support three days back after his condition had stabilised but now due to breathlessness, the 95 year-old Laxman has been put back in ventilator support, reportedly.

A Magsaysay laureate, Laxman's cartoons regaled generations since 1950s. However, a few years ago he stopped drawing due to ill health.
