RIP: R.K. Laxman Creator of the Common Man

R.K. Laxman, Indian cartoonist, and satirist extraordinaire died today at age 93, after a life well-lived. My childhood was much enriched by his mind-expaning cartoons about corruption, politics, and the absurdity and hypocrisy of our lot. He made (some of) us want a better world. Rest in peace, beloved artist.
